mrsjimmymare, thanks for being such an awesome, real, and honest person! You said it....2-3 shots, and far more commonly easily than anything else (even for those who aren't headshot experts). There's a clear reason it's by far the most overused weapon. It has no weakness. A burst rifle at least has the crazy recoil....as well as being harder at long range + less useful because of that. But what weakness does the sar have.....it's like the superman of weapons, and there's no kryptonite. I'm not sure what they changed with it last time they tweaked it, but as you said, obviously it didn't really do anything. If nothing else, it just needs way less shooting speed....that's the biggest part of what makes it so easy to use.
I agree with what you said....anyone can master a weapon and be way better with it than others. But that's not what I'm talking about. I'm a very realistic person. The kind who would be the first to admit if I'm to blame. And I don't have any problems with any other weapon. At all. Even when I come across people who are good with them. Because I can accept if I'm bested. But this gun is just....ridiculous. Doesn't even require skill. Just, like you also said....only decent aim. I'm all for weapons being accessible....but not when it's to the point where it's so much more so than every other one. Simply doesnt make any sense.
Please don't be offended, the rest who replied or I should say regular forumers they are just tired of seeing the same thread popping up, like everyday. While I think it's fine as long as it's not the SAME poster who keep opening new threads but talking about the same old repeated stuff (which mostly consists of he whining or complaining). LOL.
There, I've to agree with you SAR is the "most versatile" gun. It's very much like a Revolver (with upgrades, Revolver can be beast too). But Revolver can't be silenced. Which is why I prefer SAR over Revolver. You can also shoot a running target with Burst Rifle, just don't spam your bullets, learn to track your target. Although I HAVE TO SAY, SAR can down a running target at long distance. I can aim and shoot at a stationery HR user before he even sees me through his scope. And I have said, I don't mind ND further nerf SAR, I'll still use this gun, like how I'm currently also using Revolver, A. Rifle, sometimes Shorty/Bow. I have to change my primary gun from time to time in order not to get bored.
But I'm very used to SAR that I find myself returning to this comfortable gun when I see that I'm facing a team of level 200+ with mics. I also switched to SAR when I have teammates who go 0-0. It does helps (for me). Can't speak for others. But my personal opinion says "it's not too hard of a gun to master".
Oh sorry, I was not made aware impression that the 3-shot long gun I was using is the SAR.
No, see, the SAR is overused. It's overused because it's the jack of all trades. It's not exceptional in any aspect, but it's good in most.
In all honesty I want it to have some more advantage besides not being exceptional, but I AM NOT going to accept the fact that the M9 (the SAR of UC3 loadout weapons) doesn't get a nerf but this does.
I mean, if possible, nerf it like the FAL.
SAR is the best mid range weapon
Nieuma im not doubting your skill set just trying to figure out what is influencing you to think that a well rounded not Amazing gun is OP. I get killed by bows and shotguns yet I don't want them nerfed. BR,HR, Bows and all purchaseables are capable of beating the SAR.
