Whats with the Type-25?

#1JonnywestsidePosted 2/17/2013 10:05:53 AM
People keep assuring me its a good weapon but I just don't see it.

High fire-rate is high but it still has a really slow TTK. Scavenger is a must since it chews through ammo for fun. Recoil is high as far this game goes. Its like the Skorpion of ARs except its unreliable in CQC.

Am I missing a trick? Any tips on how to use it more effectively?]

People add stock, quickdraw, laser etc to make it an AR/SMG type hybrid, but they'd be better off with an SMG in that case. I reckon that the only reasons to use this gun are variety, completing challenges, challenging oneself, diamond AR camo, or sentimentality.

It's a bottom tier weapon. It's better than the M27 though.

W@W was awesome for gun diversity. You saw the MP40, the MP40, and the MP40. - Gritzblitz56

Its an SMG without SMG advantages. Its usable, but outclassed by almost every other AR.

I could of done that more effectively with most other guns with ammo to spare. Its not like I was missing a lot. I agree with fatclemenza in that its just a weak SMG disguised as an AR.

I think it has some of the best iron sights in the game. I actually started performing WAY better with it when I took red dot OFF.
