I don't think its overpowered at all, it is definitely a top tier AR no doubt but I think the AN-94 outclasses it in those medium-short range firefights, even sometimes at long range unless you've got a decent trigger finger.

its a very good gun, took me a while to get used to it. hammering the trigger and aiming is more difficult than it sounds.

That is the thing about the FAL. It IS the best gun in the game, period. But it takes a good trigger finger for it to be effective in all situations.

If you dont like the semi-auto, then use the AN-94. Almost as good and is full-auto.

But if you have a good trigger finger, the FAL outclasses it in every situation.

Maybe I am just getting flooded by bad FAL users. I can beat most FAL users with my trusty M27, so maybe its just me

Close range: fal beats SMG's if you land both shots. Shotguns will beat you 50% of the time or so.
Medium range: FAL is a 3 hit kill at this range, SMG's will almost have a chance but be out of their range a little. Full auto AR's with 3 hit kills (scar) will be able to probably beat you.
Long range: Snipers will probably beat you at this, but if you shoot first, you have a chance. LMG's that can aim (especially with tf) will beat you at this range.

The only downfall to the FAL is that its semi auto, and is only effective if you can aim it. I recommend stock so you can aim more with your left hand while your right hand focuses mostly on the trigger.

And I am talking about the normal FAL. I do not believe that was ever nerfed. The select fre FAL can RIP. I like that they nerfed it because now the FAL takes some skill to use.
