What do you prefer, SCAR, AK-47 or M16?
Hey all, something I have been trying to figure out myself, and I'd like to hear what other people think, what is your favorite assault rifle? Do you use the SCAR, the AK-47 or the M16, laser sights or not.
I am personally bouncing between the SCAR and the AK47, I haven't used the M16 much, maybe I should try it more, but it's a tie leaning towards the scar at this point. The AK47 has a lot of stopping power, and I really like it, with the laser sight it's pretty good at a fairly long distance, but the SCAR is just way more accurate.
The ak just takes a two round burst to take out most common infected unless a shot hits an arm or grazes them, however when clearing rooms the SCAR just seems a lot more effecient, aim at the enemy, click and fill it with a 3 round burst, and move to the next one. With or without the laser sight it basically makes a triple tap sniper, good for clearing out long range or stragling infected, and is also easier to keep people's backs clear if they are getting swarmed, an AK can hit them.
Unfortunately the SCAR's 3 round burst means you can hit people, like if you are clearing their back, I've had it happen several times where they back into the last shot, or if I am firing long range at a tank, and they are beside me, if they run across (which I think is a bad idea nonetheless, but hey, you can't be aware of everything, I understand) even if I let go of the trigger, there's still another couple shots coming out that can hit into them.
It just feels like a tactically superior weapon, lately I have been favoring the AK more considering the SCAR seems to run down it's ammo a lot more quickly, especially if you are "panick firing" into a horde to make some room. The SCAR also goes through explosive and incindiary ammo faster since you can only fire a burst.
I don't know, it's a pretty touch choice, I am getting more fammiliar with the levels (though there are some I haven't palyed yet) and sometimes the AK is a better choice, but in a spur of the moment grab for a weapon, I will probably be going for the SCAR rather than the AK.
So, what do you guys think? I can't speak much for the M16, usually when it is around it's counterparts are, and while it has lower damage it does fire pretty fast, I don't know if I will be trying it much though. I think I will use my scar and dual pistols and just keep using them to clear out the closer range enemies, I can fire pretty fast with them anyways.
If only the SCAR could switch from burst to single shot. (or you could get laser sights for your pistols, too often people cross in front not realizing I'm laying into a crowd of zombies.)
