Why does nobody like Select Fire on automatic weapons?

Seriously I don't get it. Besides people not wanting to take the time to try it. I use it quite often and I get long range kills like you wouldn't believe. Not to mention it controls more. I'm not saying it's super good but I don't see why people think it's so terrible. It really helps on the scar with the crazy recoil it has. The two round burst on the AN destroys snipers.

I really wish I could put it on the HAMR.

because
-you can manually burst and accomplish the same thing
-there's other attachments with much more tangible benefits

Probably because you can just burst fire yourself without the need of wasting an attachment? At least that's why I don't, plus I like the freedom of being able to just fully fire at times when you need to

because I can do the same thing myself by tapping the trigger? Which is what you'd be doing with SF on anyway

only auto i'd ever use SF on is the AN94 if I had just started to use it.

You use select fire with rapid fire on the scorpion

anyways, it's because you can do the same exact thing with your finger.
Plus, you can spray if you decide to in a close quarters fight without having to switch the switching thingy

Because I can make a weapon burst fire myself which frees me up a slot for something that's actually useful.

True that you can do it manually. But you won't get three rounds off each time. That's what I want. A definitive burst each time. Plus on most ARs you can trigger finger it enough to where the bursts fire in succession as though it were an automatic. But it also gives you much more control. And F41l, that's just what I use for my rush game. I use ARs with it usually.

-Or I can burst manually and not be restricted to a certain number of bullets a burst.
-I can control the recoil too so that's another reason not to use SF
-If you're just going to spam the trigger that it's almost full auto, why no just remove it and use it full auto?
-Again, just control the recoil
-Most ARs except the Scar and T25 have easy to control recoil
