The AKMS is the perfect weapon.

    Don't know why, but I use the M16A4 only with ironsight and it works.

    I'm not expecting much from the SPAS 15. What does it offer over the M1S90? Two extra rounds and faster reloading. It already takes all 8 of those rounds dumped into a target to get a kill since everyone wears LIIIA. You'll basically have to throw an entire mag at every target, and, sure, you'll reload faster, but your rate of fire is still going to be low and you'll still be more effective with a rifle.

    If you're dumping all 8 rounds to kill a target, you're operating the weapon well out of its effective range and should be using a different weapon. Besides, who mentioned the SPAS-15?

    Sorry, USAS 12. They all sort of run together, really. And, really, most of Infiltration happens at close ranges, but those ranges are well outside the effective range of the M1S90. And even with the shotguns adjusted for RT mode with IWE, I'm not entirely sure it's realistic.

    The fur is right, go for the legs. But that doesn't make much sense now does it, aiming for the legs with a big and shiny chest waiting for you as well.

    Meh, I don't know. I like the new weapons but I totally agree that they are being whored, badly. You can ignore it all you want, it does not make it any less true. Still, it's strange. Even though the AKM is fun to shoot, it's not as fun to shoot as some other weapons (M249, MK23, M1S90, G36 to name a few) so even though I can understand using the whore weapon, I don't see why so many people stick to only the whore weapons.

    I used the AKM after my return to INF yesterday and I too found it very, VERY easy to use. I was doubting to take it ever again, for the same reason I don't use the M4. It just doesn't feel like I am aiming it at times, more like the thing has an integrated aimbot, atleast that is how it feels.

    Oh and psych, to my knowledge, the m16a4 does not have iron sights.

    M16A4 has had ironsights for ages.

    Just a general Question: Do people just stick to 4-5 guns (or only one... Geo :lol: )
    or do they use a W I D E variety of guns. I use about 5 different weapons, for certain uses (Assault, Support, Demolitions etc.)

    I just checked and looks like you were right Burger, just that everyone seems to take the reflex sights.

    I pick alot of different weapons. Back when I was more active I had the max. amount of loadouts. They all were very specific, but at the same time 80% of my loadouts were 'ready for anything' type of things. Never, ever, had a light loadout. Also, I like diversity alot. For a while I had a fetish for firing the MP5/40 while walking....

    Some people like to find the best gun and use it all the time.
    ex : cough cough TAQUE

    some people like to find their best gun and use all the time (the gun they like the most, not especialy the most deadly) : ex : tomek friendly fire and the MP5 ;) Geogob with the minimi


    some people use a few guns, mostly the same ones : ex : crowse

    some people are *insane in the membrane* and always change guns : ex : the roadster


    i am in the last category. i usualy pick 1 gun/ map

    I think another great feature of the AKM is that when I run around, there's almost no visable sight misalignment. Therefore, I can strafe around corners, jog up to my enemy, and never have a *chance* to miss! Man, it's such a great gun, everyone should use the AKM. All those who say it's "too easy" are silly nillies. It's *meant* to be that way! Realistic modeling == realistic balance. Obviously it's supposed to be this good of a gun, otherwise the Inf Mod team wouldn't have made it that way! They focus on realism 100%. I respect what they've done here, and hope they continue implementing more powerful and less recoil giving guns into the game for us all to enjoy!

    If you want to make a point, sarcasm isn't the way to get it across seriously.

    Just like the M4, the only reason you are calling it a 'whore' weapon is because a lot of people are using it. That is solely because it is a new weapon, not because it is any better or worse than the others. I can easily take down anyone with an AKM with my FAMAS, M1S90, M16A4, or whatever I happen to be using at the time. Sure a couple of things should be looked at, the scoreboard name and wall penetration spring to mind, but what do you expect for a first release?

    Oh wait, is it you're just trying to make us go back on our claim that the IMT won't respond to threads here? Fine. Just imagine I'm not part of the mod team while reading this.

    Finally, when is the last time you played Inf online, in a public server or match? It might just be the timezones, but I recall not seeing you for months.

    While I don't completely agree with Keg on a number of points, it's rather worth pointing out that with the way you people treat non team members on your forums, it isn't exactly surprising that you aren't drowning in new forum members.

    Of course you can "easily" take down any player who is using a "whore" (aka. easy to aim, fast ROF, high damage) weapon! Shoot them in the back! :) Unless they have a helmet, in which case, put a bullet in each cheek! When you start to encounter people with deadly accurate aim and insane reflexes, using powerful "so-called-unbalanced" guns, you can still win by subterfuge, misdirection, stealth and flanking! That's why makes INF fun! There's something for the action gamer and something for the thinking gamers!
