This poll is now closed.
something ima do for fun here im going to post either a gun, item or setup that is debated on by the community a lot, then have a vote here to see what GFAQ thinks about its status of either being Over powered or over used.
for day 1 of this poll/Debate topic the subject will be the FAL select fire.
i put my vote for overused. it had a small uprising post launch, but that went away quickly when everyone found something better to use. but now since UMG chicago (cod tourny) lots of people, thanks to the streaming of the tourny, have started to use it again to the point of it getting annoying.
so GFAQ what do you think. OP? or Overused.
if you think this is OP explain how would you fix it.

Personally, I feel that select fire on the FAL or even the SMR has a laziness factor. I can shoot the FAL much faster than the select fire allows, but I'm lazy and I like the fact that I can put an attachment on it do my work for me. Now.... whether this is the mindset of other players, I don't know. I just know why I use it a lot.
OP'd compared to the rest of the ARs due to the map design.
If this was in MW2, it would be perfectly fine. Problem is the maps are so CQC oriented that the FAL becomes too good. So what the regular FAL fires a bit faster, just hold down the trigger while you ADS with Quickdraw towards the enemy. Even with the sluggish RoF, 2SK > 3SK. It makes the gun accessible to too many people who would normally not use it. I get killed by it more than the AN-94.
Honestly I'd remove the Select Fire from the FAL if possible. If you have to pull the trigger for each bullet, the number of people who can use it to its max potential is lessened significantly. After that, I'd just make basically all of the DLC maps large, open maps so that its not a go to weapon for almost every map.
And so begins a tale of vengeance and betrayal. Destiny by sinner sought. Tragedy by power wrought. Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume.
