The HAMR!!!

ive clocked in 13 days, all prestiges, and only last week did i start using the HAMR, ho-lee-S**T! That thing is a total beast. ive been going for diamonds, and i really liked the MK48 and LSAT, but hated that other one, the type 25 like lmg. i figured the HAMR would be much the same, boy was i wrong. its funny how i never hear anyone say that guns OP, it completely destroys. its like the scar AR, but fires faster, less recoil and has a 75 round mag. who ever made this gun at treyarch, nice one!

 

anyoneelse think the same, i hardly see it being used, is it a secret, should i be saying this? let me know!

    ive got diamond lmgs and imo this is the worst lmg and the 1 i had most problems with..the mk48 is my weapon of choice the most powerfull gun in the game,with fmj on it rips through walls like they are paper..

      I'm with olipops21, I've got Diamond on LMGs and struggled with the HAMR far more than all the others.  Give me an MK48 anyday.

      • Re: The HAMR!!!

        wow really? dont get me wrong, the MK 48, love it, like the LSAT too. i really struggled with the q be somthing, weak as ****, butthe HAMR andi just click, i have like 2,6 KD with that thing and a 1.4 to 1.5 with the other two. i think its the faster firing first volley, up close its like and smg. to each his own though.

            HAMR with:

             

            Attachments:

             

            stock,

            grip,

            quickdraw

             

            Perks:

             

            lightweight + hardline

            toughness

            dexterity

             

            can drop hardline and go with some c4 for good meausre

             

            i find that set up is suitable for all senarios, like having a super beefy AR with endless bullets.

              That's because you are using it in a more semi-mobile fashion.  I tried using the HAMR with Dual Band and picking off snipers was a bloody pain on Drone.  There's far too much damage drop off for it to be a pure LMG as I see them (probably too used to the L86 from MW3).  I had no problems with the MK48 but I've golded them all so I only use the MK48 all blinged out in diamond.  Brand new and shiny.

               

              I tend to go:

               

              MK48

              Adjustable Stock

              Optic of choice (usually VZ or DB to get the calling cards, if not I will use the iron sights)

              Flak Jacket

              Toughness

              Tactical Mask

               

              I have some alterations like Hardline when going for mid to high streaks, Engineer for equipment happy modes etc.  And I use FMJ and Rapid Fire for taking out Stealth Choppers and Escort Drones.

               

              I did pretty well with a suppressed HAMR on Raid and Standoff recently though.

               

              Well, this is my favourite LMG and I don't need to spend a regular token on it.  Funky.

              • Re: The HAMR!!!

                the major drawback to the MK 48 is the ironsite, its so damn BIG! i have to use redt dot and feel like im wasting a more effective attachmnet like the grip.

                  Meh, I've got used to obtrusive irons having used the M60 from MW3 for quite a bit.  Although I gave up using it after wanting Extended Magazines on it since I had golded the L86 and grip and thermal turned it into the best LMG for me.  The first LMG I used on MW3 was also the MK46.  Maybe they'll just take a little time to get used to the iron sights.  I had to use the RDS on the M4 in MW3 to begin with but using the LMGs meant I can cope with any sight, except the HAMR optic from MW3.  That was poo.

          This game is very strange, you get completely opposing opinions on the same gun such as the Peace Keeper for example, some people post saying it's OP and others saying it's completely useless!

           

          Some guns just seem to suit certain play styles, game modes or maps and I think they might also suit some connections more than others too, most seem to hate the LSW but I like it and do really well with it.

      The MK48 is my favorite gun from any CoD. It is a laser.

  • Re: The HAMR!!!

    I just got my HAMR gold this past weekend.  I also have gold MK48 and close to getting LSAT gold.  The HAMR is the worst out of the three I've used so far.  It has a lot of recoil at first and then I hate how it reduces its fire rate.   It had a hard time getting hit markers on players.  The LSAT is my favorite so far because it has almost the same damage as a MK48 but it reloads much faster.

  • Re: The HAMR!!!

    I didnt like it a WHOLE lot but it was ok.  I did the best with quickdraw, stock and silencer.

     

    The silencer seems weird, but I play HC so it wasnt a big deal and seems to make the gun "feel" better.

    • Re: The HAMR!!!

      someone mentioned grip ,imo the only one you dont need grip on is the mk48,i have 5 classes with it and dont use grip on any

      • Re: The HAMR!!!

        I tried the grip but it didnt seem to make a lot of difference.

         

        I managed to get them to diamond and they were all pretty easy with the exception of the QBB.  That gun sort of hated me.

        • Re: The HAMR!!!
          SitRepPro

          That's because grip reduces recoil/increase centre speed on LMGs by a whopping 2%.

          • Re: The HAMR!!!

            that 2% might not seem like much, but over long distance, it really does impact the gun, like on turbine, drone and meltdown, along those long site lines it really helps.

              I reduce the distances of my engagements with the HAMR.  I camped in the middle of Raid and did surprisingly well - that "ditch" with the trees.  Called in a VSAT and played peekaboo.  One attachment I barely ever go without and that's Adjustable Stock.

  • Re: The HAMR!!!
    GeneralVanDorn

    When I was going for diamond LMGs, the HAMR for me was the hardest for me to get gold for - I hated that gun! Glad you are loving it though!

  • Re: The HAMR!!!

    The HAMR is my best LMG. If I wanted to win, it's my go to weapon besides the MSMC. It's just crazy good and I find it more suitable than the LSAT. I can't bring my overall LSAT average to 2KD but I have no problem doing that with every other LMG specially the HAMR. All my LMGs are at 2KD except for the LSAT which is at 1.96. For some weird reson, I'm struggling to hit my strides with the LSAT.

    HAMR is good, QBB is the worst. but the MK48 is still king of all guns

  • Re: The HAMR!!!
    Myramuff

    The hamr is awesome! I just run too much to not get enough kills with it. I need to start playing more offensive and see how we'll I do with it. My bf has all the lmg diamond but he is a beast at camping and a beast with the guns with a target finder. No0b. Lol

    Ugh I've been doing well (for me) with the QBB but you guys are making me want to burn tokens and try other ones now.  Damn you all!

    its not that great, but when everythings not a 1 shot weapon its weakness becomes a lot more apparent

  • Re: The HAMR!!!
    bigjon00

    iver done AR , launcher's diamonds and  now im doing LMG's  the hammr is amazing even better with a shield on your back , QBB is for a gun n run kinda style cause of it high fire rate . but yeah anway hammr rules .

  • Re: The HAMR!!!
    ValleyYeti

    this post gives me hope!!!!  I just started my trek to diamond LMG's and the first one I got gold was the QBB LSW.  I see people bashing the hell outta it but, honestly, I didn't have a hard time with it.  granted my k/d sucks and I am not a rusher.  This post (and the subsequent replies) tells me that I should be able to do the other LMG's fairly easily.

     

    Thanks, OP

    • Re: The HAMR!!!

      play style is key it seems with LMG's. i use the hamr like an AR (see my set up above) but for just playing defensive at range th MK 48 is better. but what i love about the hamr is its versatility at medium to close range. try it.

    the hamr is a beast when you use it right, but the lsat is still my fav

    ya put a target finder on it as well noob.

    Mk48, lsat, hamr are all good..

     

    QBB needs a subtle buff...I think the recoil is just a tad too strong on the qbb. Reducing the recoil would probably solve all the QBB problems.
