M4 because of the amo capacity but havent found out sks damage yet on anything exept zombies

i carry m4 on back and either mosin or sks in hand or m4 in hand and mosin on back, depends on the weapons mods. it seems like the sks packs a good punch though. If you dont mind running a little slower you can have both and carry enough ammo if you have a 300 rd case or two

the mosin fits my playstyle, but close quarters combat the M4 is going to be your best friend. at range the m4 is worthless. even with a 4x scope it's only accurate to 200m or so

400-500 if you have the right mod for m4

but most of the time m4 will save your ♥♥♥ since most encounter in this game is close encounters

I had a pristine 4x scope for the m4, now i dont know actual ingame distances I simply judge 100m as the rough distance from 1 hanger at an airfield to the next. at 200m with the 4x scope, bipod, prone, and pristine all parts including the better buttstock, the cluster of shots was terrible and the bullets were not on point.

Now switch to mosin, i can put a bullet on target at a distance so great the models are white faded. easily 600m+ judging by my standards.

Sorry I should have specified what i was referring to as a meter

SKS is one shot kill anything under 300M. I have survived 2 guys shotting at me with M4 50m away. i was exiting out the building and they spray. i ran back in. Bandaged quick and still killed them both. But then i had a long search for blood or saline.

I just killed 2 guys at the NWAF one shot both with SKS. And just finished off with revolver.

This game uses real distance. It's made from a military shooting simulator. Also Mosin can accuratly hit someone 800m away. If you train enough you can hit players 900-1300m

Shouldn't of dropped my SKS.
Azgarod Feb 5, 2014 @ 11:52pm 
im sure it does, but that doesn't mean that we have any way of judging that distance except for our own eyes. so saying 300-400m means nothing except it shoots that far, saying it shoots 2 hangers away accurately means something.

But lets go with the 400-500m range with it's 4x scope. if thats the case then with the mosin I'm more easily hitting my targets at a current maximum of around 1700m, if i could find something further away i would shoot it too

The runway for the AF has 1000m

don't worry SkS arent rare at all

Azgarod Feb 5, 2014 @ 11:54pm
