The SMR has an amazing 2SK range, and is a 3SK at long range provided you don't get a headshot. It also has great penetrating power on its own and practically ignores cover with FMJ.
the M1216 and S12 are also really good at close range.
The SCAR has an amazing 3sk range with the same exact penetration as the SMR,FAL,and SWAT. It also helps that the SCAR has a consistent fire rate unlike the SMR. The M1216 and S12 are fun, but they have no reason to exist when the 870 and smgs outclass them in almost every way.
The scar has enough recoil to make it a normal gun. Not only is it one of the.few guns that benefit from the grip. And it has a consistant fire rate.
Is it the best? No but I will never be the worst when you consider the how it isn't as outclassed as the vector is in the smg category or the burst shotgun. Heck the semi auto shotgun and the burst one have to be the worst guns in the game
Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't this gun get a range INcrease with the select fire attachment? This gun is way better as a burst weapon. The irons are great and the recoil is MUCH more controllable in burst mode. I think this is the best way to use it, but there are still many better guns out there.
