'cos assault rifles can do anything! :)

 #2 - without crosshair - Posted by: ahilej (Member) on 02-15-2009 at 08:51

Assault rifles, with scope for longer ranges, and iron sigths for closer hits. But for distances over 200m, snipers are the solution... there are several mods for ShoC inwhich elevation reticles in sniper scopes are well calibrated. Scopes for Ar's are usually Red-Dot, that's the way things should be. The most unusable scope in ShoC is the one of the most usable rifle - if one plays without crosshair - HK G36. Because it has no working Reflex 1x scope as it has in real life, and 4x - upper scope - cannot solve close combat situations. Too bad... so AK74M is the usual choice. Or SIG550.

Is an assualt rifle with a scope, spray and pray close up and precision shooting far away. overall i prefer taking out enemies 5 miles away behind several bushes, next to a campfire with a roasting sausage and tent nearby ^_^

Pistols for QCQ, Snipers to take em out from a distance......:cool:

SVD upgraded for accuracy, range and power. You can hit and kill anything at any range. Second favourite is assault rifles, the SG550 upgraded for sniping and converted to 5.45mm can lay a headshot on anything and is a lot better for ammo.

I personally love pistols for some reason, i've no explanation for it. Otherwise though, i prefer medium-CQC and long range.

Pistols and that small AK-74U. I don't like sniper weapons or other big guns, they usually decrease mobility and disallow you to run. I saved my butt so many times by just running away from mutants and climbing up to a building, then pewpew. I don't care about the damage, they'll die anyway.

Nothing is more satisfying and says "you die now" than a nice shotgun at close range. Up close and personal, I like that. Sure, each weapon has it's use, but my favorite will always be a shottie, from Quake to FEAR to STALKER, the louder the better baby. Unf!

Short range:big ass shotgun! long range:running towards the enemy burning ammo screaming "freedom!!!" with an sa80(l85)

 #11 - Posted by: chug_muffin (Member) on 02-22-2009 at 02:23

They modelled an SA80 A1, and what is more they made it a left handed one, whereas Mr Marked-One is in fact right handed. So as you run towards the enemy screaming "FREEDOM!", you could fire 3 shots. Then, the SA80 A1 being what it is, would jam, and being a left handed weapon fired by a right handed person, Marked One would have to pause to pick up his teeth since that's where the empty cases would fly in reality.

Pff, range is for cowards :p :p (or people like me who can't shoot). Saiga Shotgun all the way!
