First thoughts on the M8A1... Not good for Headshots.

#1SevenDayCandlePosted 3/31/2013 9:54:14 AM
It's a great gun, pretty damn powerful, pretty damn accurate, slow reload time and I keep messing up the reload cancel as well.

Only at about 100 kills with it (and 4 headshots) and am just using it naked for the time being. Is there some secret trick to getting headshots with this damn gun? Where's the best place to aim so it kicks upwards for the headshot?

Its got no headshot multiplier because Treyarch. You can try using an optic with a bit more zoom. Just take advantage of stationary targets. It doesn't have much deviation within the burst
Red wine with fish. Well that should have told me something.

Hmm, yea I may have to do that. I thought the iron sights on it were pretty good though.

It seems to be pretty damn accurate, but with the no HS multiplier, that explains the lack of headshots with the thing (to a small extent). I've tried to stationary targets, seems I keep getting a shoulder of their hand/arm from the flinch though.

Easily my least favorite AR. Was grueling to gold/max prestige that thing.

That was the first AR I golded because I fell in love with it. I think ACOG might have helped a bit with the headshots, it really just requires good aim or lucky surprise hip-fires.

It's good, I like it, i just can't get a damn headshot with this thing lol. It's definitely a great gun, just not for headshots.

Got this gold with the least amount of kills and most amount of headshots after the first 100.

I dunno.

Easily one of the best guns in the game and a head shot magnet with an ACOG, you're probably trash

Always thought it was funny how on some guns a shot to the face does the same damage as to the toe.

IMO a headshot should do at least 2X damage on every gun other then maybe Shotguns.

Using headshot multipliers to balance a gun is a terrible idea.
