FAL-SS is a really fun gun. I enjoy using nearly every long gun, but it's still my favorite. Shame there aren't more spawns for it in Classic though.

Learn the time it takes for the gun to recenter from a shot when aimed. Once you got that down, you can fire at a pace where your aim always recenters, ensuring you get the best accuracy you can. This is essential for mid-long distance shooting, whereas you can nearly spam R1 at close range.

You can't wait for it to return to center in a gun fight, any competent player would of killed you if you did that.


Exactly, you continue to fire the FAL until it locks onto your target regardless whether or not you're centered on an enemy. Let that aim assist do the work for you brothaah!

Alternatively, use the dragon and double tap all the time. Once you get to the point where most of the double taps you do land perfectly, the FAL would be cake.

I took advantage of meeting some noobs in FFA to try the FAL. Went 14-4 with Talbot's FAL, and was pleasantly surprised by the range and speed of the weapon, but I still don't really like tapping my finger so much...just tapping an entire (extended) clip in one go is pretty tiring :/ (tiring on the finger, not my entire self, I'm not THAT unfit, jeez.)

Do you feel me?

You need finger exercise. Play Tekken with me.

I think I'll stick with piano-ing. And maybe I migth use the FAL even more to act as finger exercise XD.

If I use the FAL, I use Eddy's. extended clip (must have on all weapons for me). Then the max ammo on Eddy's FAL is a bonus. Then I don't have to taunt to get daredevil ammo as much.

what would a FAL-SS custom mean? Like only fals as the long gun? or are PWs and pistols excluded and purely just the fal?

True Balance:
We felt that the Hunting Rifle wasn’t effective enough at mid-range due to its very slow fire rate. While every weapon doesn’t have to be as effective at every range, so much combat occurs at short to mid ranges in The Last of Us that we felt the Hunting Rifle felt was not effective in enough situations. By increasing its damage the Hunting Rifle user is now more likely to get a down on a wounded player, or can combo a Hunting Rifle with a pistol to try and fight effectively at mid-range.
