It's good as a long range support weapon for your team unless you're really beast with it (like my friend ruber). Then you can just run around with it and wreck.

Then you're using it right. You can also hit them wuick with one shot and switch to your side arm. That's pretty effective.

Just wait till you run into two people using the Hunting Rifle effectively on the same time. Insta-death.

Armour covers your upper body and head.

 

If you get shot in the legs, it doesn't protect you. If your helmet gets broken, your head will be exposed to full damage. If your vest gets broken, everything else is exposed to full damage.


I understand that.  The problem is that with some guns it takes a massive ammount of your very limited supply of ammo in order to break their armor.  Then it takes most of a clip to down them, then if you're too far away to get in close for a melee execution you have to spend even more ammo to kill them once they're down, which is made even more difficult by the fact that they mostly have part of their armor left over.  I know I've lost kills because I downed somebody, then popped them in the head with the 9MM from across the room after they were downed, only to have the bullet bounce harmlessly over the helmet that they're still wearing despite the fact that I already broke their armor off.


Quick question: You ARE aware that weapons still damage the health of the player when they hit armour, right? In my experience, the damage is reduced to ALMOST nothing on the hit that breaks it, but other than that, it's still a decent portion of the usual damage getting through.

 

You don't need to break armour, EVEN when you're hitting it, before killing the target.

I don't know why hunting rifle is getting a lot of flak

The first 5 posts sayz it's useless but I beg to differ.

Even without the silencer the first few levels,

all you have to do is get on a sniper's seat in the map and keep popping them from far away.

even with armor at least you take it away.

The thing about this weapon and this game is it's really based on teamwork and I think that it's wonderful.

You can damage them from far away and your team can finish it off for you

OR

You can hit them once, pull out your side arm (i like the 9mm with this) and down them and execute them in one clip from far away.

Most people make a run for it once they get hit with the sniper one time.

When I was lvl 0 I was trying to pull some black ops stuff like trying to take out the entire team by myself and I was always a lone wolf.

That is just not how the game is played.

At least not EVERY round.

Your opponents get smart

And even with armor, 2 enemies can take you out like nothing.

And it only takes one enemy to smarten up and camp your point of flank entrance.

Anyway, I just got the silencer last night and I'm messing with the load out combinations this morning.

Just waiting for my PS3 to update is all Smiley Happy

I got better with the hunting rifle now, so I just want to say it doesn't need a buff. Thanks!
