Arrow Your favourite weapon?

That's right.

Mine would have to be the M5K overall, the thing is a beast. The AUG A3 & MTAR-21 come close too.

In terms of that overpowered M417, I don't really care for it seeing as the SKS is still better and I still prefer the 870 over the SPAS too.

Yours?

Since I often play as aggressive recon, my answer is the JNG-90.

I pretty much hate all the new guns, but the M417 is pretty ridiculous. My friend is pretty found of the AUG, although I rather stick with the M16.

I didn't like any of them, to be honest. They don't feel any different/better than anything we already have, so my loadout stays the same M4A1, Glock 18 and my knife...

I am liking the L86A2 and the AUG. Seems like I got a bunch of kills quickly with the ACW-R so I like that too. I do not think they are anything special just something new to play with

L86A2 is a pretty nice weapon. The M417 got me the sniper medal in no time.

I like the AUG, ACR, L86, and M417. Although the biggest reason I like the M417 is because it is helping me get the sniper rifle medal alot faster. Before I started using it I only had about 12 ribbons, now I have 33. As for the others I named, they don't seem too different but like some have said they are different weapons to use.

I like the M-Tar and the MP5.

I do not like the SPAS, Scar-L or the ACR. Three of the Worst weapons in the game, Scar-L Especially.

The rest of the weapons are alright.

Really? IMO the ACW-R is probably the best carbine right now and the SPAS is amazing with slugs, also I'd say the MP5 is basically just like the M7 only not quite as good, I totally agree about the SCAR-L though (it does do well at medium to long ranges though).

I suppose these issues(except the Spas) can all be boiled down to personal Preference.

Maybe I need to give the ACR another shot then. I got one Service star with it and moved on, I did alright in Close Quarters with it, but on any bigger map I just couldnt keep up with other weapons. As for being best Carbine, have you tried the MTar?

The Spas is hit and miss(literally) for me. I've fired(while aiming down the sights) multiple Shells(buckshot & flechette) into immobile(Laying prone, standing still) people and gotten Zero hit Signs. I've even fired a shell aimed directly at a dudes face from 2-3 feet(immediately on the other side of a concrete barricade I was using for cover) and he was at 4% health.

Other times I've killed people in one shot or killed people(at full health) from ridiculous ranges.

The Scar-L is just an absolute Joke. 30+ Bullets to kill almost anyone.

I agree the MP5 is similar to the MP7(they're the same Manufacturer after all). However the MP5 seems to do a little more damage and is more accurate, but has a smaller magazine and a slightly slower fire rate.

Heh, you was doing pretty damn well yesterday with your SPAS slugs, the few times I killed you was either by flanking you or just plain luck.

I haven't really given the MTAR a proper try yet (just got 10 kills for the cheevo) but I plan to once I get 500 with the ACW. For me the low recoil of the ACW makes tagging people at long distances pretty easy (foregrip & HB) and the fast fire rate makes it pretty nasty in CQ (foregrip & suppressor), but as you say, it's all down to preference.

I've heard people talking about hit detection issues with the pump shotguns before, personally I don't really have that problem, but obviously if you can't hit things then it's gonna suck. I would however strongly recommend using slugs! They are by far the best ammo option for the pump guns IMO.

Yeah, I was in the "slug zone" for sure, I was getting some pretty hilarious hate mail.

The MTar Kills people very quickly, but at the same time runs out of Ammo just as quickly. It has just a hair more recoil than the ACR - which I'll be giving another shot soon(along with slugs) - but it is pretty accurate. Its also very deadly when you hip fire it with a Laser Sight.

Oh I can well imagine! Every time you killed me I was like "fucking gealt, again!"

I've never tried slugs, only buckshot and flechette, I dont think my accuracy is high enough to risk it.

SPAS-12, hands down.

I already had 39 kills from picking it up off friends who got Premium before me. I unlocked it today...

Got a little carried away. Earned 2 service stars within an hour.

I loved the 870 but now...the SPAS is back!

NO!

I don't know why, but it just doesn't do it for me, I still prefer the 870!

AUG, without a doubt. That thing's a fucking monster in almost any scenario...at least when I use it.

Second and third would have to be the MTAR and SPAS, respectively.

My vote is for the MTAR 21. I like it a lot and is the gun I use the most next to the JNG and MK5(Although when I use the MK5 I feel like im in a 90's action movie)

ACW-R, it replaced the SCAR-H as my standard carbine. Have yet to try the M5K, JNG-90, or MTAR yet but I doubt my opinion we really change after using those weapons.

Can we choose more than one?

Dig the JNG-90 but the MTAR has been working some wonders for me this week when I manage to get some game time in.

Really love the SPAS-12 with flechette rounds, perfect for CQ.
