Just tried out the FAL-SS

48 replies 600 views Edited Aug 9, 2013

.....

and dear god, what a miserable experience.. How could anyone claim this thing was overpowered? It's garbage.. absolute garbage. Hitting someone more than 3 times is impossible due to the insane recoil.. I thought it was only insanely accurate? I don't get it.

"was".
It most definitely was overpowered.

 

But even now, it can be very good. Try it out a bit more. I hardly ever use it personally, but it can be pretty solid. 

Do you feel me?

It was 4 bullets to kill and FF wasn't nerfed back then as well.

There are people who are good with it though. I mean, it sucks, but a handful are good with it, lile the Raffica.

Wasn't the only nerf they did was just increase it from 4 shots to 5? The accuracy and recoil are still painfully awful. The question is.. why bother myself with a weapon that's so hard to master.. when I could spare myself and just use the M9?

Everyone, say hello to motto of Uncharted. We should engrave it somewhere...

I'm one of the few people who can use it and not **bleep** up.

 

1. Strafing reduces recoil and you can dodge more bullets so Fleet Foot is very important.

2. Try to stay as far away from Accuracy mods as you can. With the Fleet Foot tactic, the aim assist becomes too sticky and it's harder to get a kill with the Accuracy mod.

3. The gun will jam like the Para if you try to shoot it too quickly. Shoot two bullets at a normal-fast speed and then press the button as quickly as you can. This will prevent jamming and will let you shoot as quickly as you want.

 

Those are the main guidelines. You end up making your own as you continue to use it.

Use the M9 RoF to win games. Can't afford RoF? Use the conveniently placed Revolution M9 with the free RoF mod.

Thanks, I knew I should've used Max Ammo or Clip Size over Accuracy... yeesh.
Speaking of which, does the Accuracy mod even reduce recoil? Or does it just increase auto-aim?

Also, aways zoom in, and I find Scoped In helps too, but that's just me, I hate the pain wobble.

Accuracy decreases recoil and increases the aim-assist, it makes the gun slightly more useful at long range but decreases your chances of headshots at close range. Even without headshots, the gun still kills faster than all automactics, but the only requirement is that you don't miss. Talbot's FAL-SS is the best in my opinion, you should go after it even if you don't plan to use it, Classic mode needs some more players. Smiley Tongue

Another tactic I've been using recently is blindifiring while jumping off a high area, it doesn't always kill someone (though the amount of times it does it quite surprising), but you can use the traces to work out where your opponent went, it seems the FAL-SS will try to hit them, even if it can't. Really useful if someone is using Cloaked.
