This was a very interesting claim that I made back in September of 2018 (if I recall correctly), at the time I had way less experience with the game, and just wanted to get attention. This thread is all about debunking what I said, and replacing that with my new outlook.
One thing I didn’t include was it’s stats, here they are now:
|Weapon Type||Primary Weapon|
|Weapon Class||Assault Rifle|
|Rank Prerequisites||Rank 0|
|Damage||33 → 20|
|Range||70 max → 120 min|
|Magazine Size|30, 31 with round in chamber|
|Fire Modes|Auto, 3× Burst, & Semi|
|Rate of Fire|Auto: 700 RPM
3× Burst: 1000 RPM|
The first thing I pointed out was the common ammo type. Honestly, this isn’t even a good argument as most of the Assault Rifles in the game can pick up ammo from other weapons in the same class. (E.G an M16A3 could pick up AK-12 ammo too) Besides, I still switch to my pistol all the time when I use it.
Next I pointed out how “bUrSt MoDe Is CrAzy”. Honestly, the AN-94 has a much better burst firing mode, and the M16A4 also has an excellent burst fire mode. Plus, that excellent 1000 RPM firerate in burst that I talked about, is really only achievable with an autoclicker, even with near-perfect human inputs.
I then point out the good accuracy and low recoil. The funny thing is, the AK-74 also has excellent accuracy and (imo) easier to control recoil than the AK12!
Then for some reason I talk about how it supports different play styles. To be honest, that almost entirely sums up the Assault Rifle class as a whole. With the exception being the M231.
Alright, I’m gonna do a poll, I think it’s better that you guys decide this rather than me, especially considering my questionable views in the past.
Yall will decide, what is truly the best Fully Automatic Rifle in the game.
- AKM/AK 103
