I just played with the assault rifle for the first time and

41 replies 871 views Edited Jun 22, 2013

it made the game actually seem fun and more like the original socoms. The main difference is that I was able to stand up normal and move around from cover to cover while popping people. I didnt have to crouch like a fruitcake the whole time and camp most of the time. I was able to be very aggressive and put enough shots in people before they ran or ducked back behind cover and stay there like a passy until I decide to make a move. I would actually be able to put enough bullets in a guy running around with a molotov out in his hand before he could actually throw it at me. This is not possible with other weapons which is dumb.

 

The game is so close yet so far away.  :smileysad:

Yeah I hate it when people are passy-aggressive.

Yeah. unfortunately the game rewards it like a mofo though.

 

Edit: Is there any way to start with the assault rifle at the start of each game. I mean can you unlock it as a stock weapon eventually?

No, it's only a purchasable.

If it was the assault rifle that killed me earlier (the one with almost full auto, insane stopping power, and insta-death causing), it simply needs removing before it becomes the ROF M9 all over again.....

Ill explain what makes this and socom different.

 

socom=socom had lower health and rewarded stealth and getting a jump on someone, but in a game like socom most of the time if you got killed it was your fault for running around not using the enviroment, crawling in the grass, and other stealth options to your advantage . many times in socom i was caught in the open and dived prone behind a hillside rock and we had awesome gun battles, TLOU lacks a good run button, jump, or prone dive to use as defensive tactic. Tlou also does not reward stealth gameplay or a good jump on someone but rather rewards home made grenades and melee style.
