Which Bolt?

I think the standard bolt seems to be the best. Scan is pointless spotting, HE takes 2 shots to kill BA depends on your accuracy. I haven't used Scan that much yet though but I'm not one to switch bolts that often so I'm sticking to Standard bolt for now.

OT: The regular bolt accounts for most of my very few kills yet but the HE has saved my ass being surprised a few times hipfired at close range.

I've fired scan bolts randomly and found people hiding I didn't know were there, so it may not be too useful offensively for damage but tactically it's definitely got a use which was its intention anyway. I've started getting into the habit of lobbing in a scanner before charging into a building or around corners.

Haven't played with the Balanced bolt too much yet.

BA. I'm a headshot master (was top 100 in the WORLD according to BF3stats, before I stopped playing) so I find it easy as hell to kill with it. Support + Scoped Xbow with BA = Metro sniping without running out of arrows. Ever. I have found exactly where to aim so I always make it a instakill.

Weighing in all late...

Balanced Bolt for the win!

I like that I can roll with a PDW/Shotty as a mid-range primary, my Rex as a close-range primary, and the Xbow with BA for long-range cleanup. I feel like the Balanced Bolt has less drop over distance than bullets from any of the sniper rifles. Plus, it's more rage inducing to pwn a bush-wookie with the Xbow.

The question should be who wouldn't vote the scan bolt. I'm still trying to get a kill with it.

Balanced bolt is best cause damage remains the same, while you don't have to worry about angling the shot.
