Why would i ever use another gun unless the map is hijacked?
However I often find my self using another gun because I feel the maps are too small.
Just a ramble here. I LOVE THE FAL.
i love the FAL as well, but im getting diamond on AR's so once thats done, ill be exclusivly FAL
FAL gets a bad wrap for being an easy gun to use, so people hate on it
It was the first weapon i got gold as i played TDM pretty much all the time from the off. I dont find it good enough for faster paced game modes. Its perfect for TDM but thats about it. I would rather play with a sniper rifle than the fal on KC
It's a good gun without a doubt and definitely one of my favorites but there are other good guns as well. What it really boils down to is personal preference.
FAL, mm scanner, select fire, stock for smaller maps.
FAL acog, select fire, fmj for snipers or maps like Carrier.
ALL weapons in this game have their pros and cons. So one can't knock me for using the FAL when they use a SMG with the baby monitor. The FAL was my first permanent unlock.
The an-94 when used right is a close second ( my favorite and most used gun ) but I agree the fal beats out anything at assault distances. I hope they buff other assault rifles to compete with the fal when it's on full auto.
The SMR is pretty close. It's got more recoil but if you can handle that it also has more damage and range but a slightly slower fire rate. Head to head they are pretty close in overall effectiveness when equipped with select fire. My kd with the SMR is almost the same as with the FAL.
SMR is a beast in HC. I love playing on Turbine and sniping people with it.
When I tried the SMR (might have to try again) I kept getting hit markers or it jammed, probably just a bad connection but it was enough for me to just say #### it. The Fal in full auto shouldn't be able to beat out every other AR. If used as a single shot then sure.
I can't use the Fal oddly, but the SMR my KD is much higher. Heck, I beat smg's up close with it due to it's 2 hit kill.
...I also get robbed of my 2 hit kill many times but I still make up for it at range.
...but please, don't go abusing my secret weapon. I don't want people crying nerf once they do it to the fal
