It's not fast enough to justify the recoil nerf (anymore).  Assuming perfect accuracy, it beats all other automatics aside from the KAL RoF by one miserable bullet, so if you can't control it, the M9 is actually made worse by the mod.  It's one of the better reasons I have for using Daredevil, so I don't have to risk dealing with this crap.

 

As for my preferred M9 (disregarding Weapon Expert Gold), well let me just go through them as listed:

 

  1. Jade - Preferred by a mile, best of all worlds (best recoil, best clip, best reload...)
  2. Spyder's - If I didn't care about reload speed, had no Call Out hat, and were using a loadout lacking Daredevil, this would be great.  As-is, it sucks for me.
  3. Marlowe's - My go-to when I don't use Daredevil in an M9 loadout.
  4. Flynn's - The other case of sucks for lacking the Reload Speed mod.  It would be on top since it's otherwise the best M9 in the game, but I've died too many times reloading in 1v1's to go without that mod.
  5. Chloe's - I used to use this a lot before I switched to the AK... and realized the power of Clip Size... and got that particular Camo Cap. :\

FYI, I main the AK now, but my feelings on the mods aren't particularly different.

So the M9 isn't a good gun? I should use some type of AK maybe?


It is a good gun, between the two you chose i'd say Marlowe's.

Marlowe's M9 is my favorite M9. However, with the way the game (unfortunately) is at the moment, Flynn's M9 is probably the best M9 in the game Smiley Sad

I personally only use FN allowed guns so I either use Navarro's AK or Marlowe's M9.

Bang Bang!

I prefer neither of these, but Jade M9 is good except for the recoil, which is why I use E3 AK, it's just like Jade M9 but better. Smiley Wink

Erm... Weapon Expert AK (RS, Accuracy) or Chloe's M9.

 

Of course if you hate killsteals just do with Marlowe's. 128 bullets? lol. More please.

Re: Flynn's M9 or Marlowe's M9 ?

I was looking for this topic to be brought up.

 

Doesn't anyone else feel the recoil on guns with clip size is worse than those without?  For me, it's not a massive difference between let's say Jade's M9 and Marlowe's M9, but I feel I can take on anyone from any distance with Marlowe's; not so much with Jade's M9.  

 

Let's take playing a TDM in Temple, for example.  If I go to the lower level at the beginning of the game, I'm able to take guys out who are on the other hallway across from the middle column if I use Marlowe's M9.  Jade's M9?  I'd have to go a bit closer.

 

When playing against guys with good accuracy, getting as many shots in as posisble is crucial for me, so having a lot of bullets in my clip but not always hitting them because of the recoil does nothing for me.  I'd rather be accurate and just dodge bullets when I run out with Fleet Foot/evasive maneuvers than have to deal with the vertical recoil of Jade M9/Flynn's etc.

 

I guess the FN pros do so well with Jade's M9 because the recoil is predictable (always vertical), but I can also see why OmG! for example prefer Marlowe's M9; i.e., since they always attack in (at least) pairs, running out of bullets isn't so bad. 

 

What do you guys think?

It's not the recoil, it's the sensitivity. Each character gun has its' own sensitivity. The Jade's is a lot higher than Marlowe's, Flynn's and Chloe's.

 

It basically goes:

 

Jade > Flynn > Marlowe > Chloe

 

[Jade has most and it's going down in descending order. So many other people get the <>'s wrong.]

Bang Bang!
