I disagree. With the appropriate buffs, the other weapons would all fulfill their respective roles like they were originally intended. Observe my hypothesis:

 

  • Micro V2: Low damage and excels in both blindfire and close-medium range while aimed, ideal for aggressive players
  • Raffica V2: Medium damage and high accuracy is offset by its burst fire rate, this will appeal to players with good aim [and fans of the G-MAL]
  • Tau V2: High damage with increased zoom ensures lethality at medium-long range but lacks blindfire effectiveness, for expert marksmans and fans of the snipers
  • Para-9: Low damage and a solid all around weapon that appeals to a wide variety of playstyles

 

That would be near-perfect pistol balance.

No, it has high recoil making it a waste of time to use while aimed. Honestly, if you're in range to attempt firing the Micro OTS then you're actually far better off sprinting up to your enemy to let the game aim for you. Therein lies the problem. 

 

No one's asking for it to be made into a laser, just that it needs a more consistent hop or simply less kick.

Its good but not unbeatable. Besides there are only 4 differnt types of pistols and two of are as useless as trying to **bleep** on someone.

If you think something is impossible, you’ll make it impossible.

I just say add an accuracy MOD to it, same with all the RoF weapons. Then people might experiment with that. Instead of being blindfire fucks and using RoF and droping a dadypain on everyone.

lol am I the only one here who sees absolutely nothing wrong with the micro?

 

I've mained that pistol forever, and I see nothing wrong with it at all. It's not the most accurate thing ever I know, but it is decent enough to where aimed kills are possible and sometimes.

 

It really does not need to be anymore accurate than it is. The only problem with pistols in my eyes, is that the raffica is still useless and the Tau still has like no ammo in it.

No. Talbot's Micro= second best gun in the game.

Re: Para-9 is too Good Compared to the Other Pistols

I'm not complaining about it, too, but it's overpowered compared to the Arm-Micro. Sometimes, people start using their handgun to blindfire me, but what's weird about that, they have their M9 ready. They switch, because they know that this handgun is better for this situation. Why would I use the Arm-Micro, wich wouldn't help me, because whenever I pick something up and I have to aim my handgun, it's useless, when I can use the Para-9 and aim and blindfire with it. Just saying.

While the para 9 definetly needs it hipfire accuracy reduced, I think all weapons needs a blindfire reduction. It has gotten ridiculous.
If you nerf other aspects of the Para 9 to make it balanced with the other pistols, it will be useless, just like the TAU and the Raffica. I don't think this is what you want. So reduce hipfire on all weapons, and buff the others
Voila, you get pistol balance

I actually think Raffica and Tau are underpowered, NOT that Para is overpowered.

AND (to everyone discussing about it), if its blindfire accuracy is decreased, ROF mod for Micro NEEDS to go. I guess you don't want to find yourself in a ROF Micro fest.

Anyway, BF accuracy doesn't bother me since it is a secondary weapon and you got to switch to it.. who cares about that with ROF M9 around? 7/10 players use ROF M9. You don't need a Jade Para.

Para shouldn't have FAL's BF accuracy. It would be pointless. Think about it: Is it easier to blindfire a 9mm or a combat rifle?
