Thanks for the info. :thumbsup:

how easy is it to kill with the repair tool? :confused:

If there is a **** sniper on a hill aim at his head from behind :D and it is easy but like in open combat not very

I unlocked the famas and the HK53 both brilliant guns.

Was just going to ask about this, I unlocked the Famas too but didn't get to use it. What would you compare it to? What about the HK53 too?

I'm assuming that the unlocked guns are only to be used from their respective classes, except the last 2 guns?

It compares to the F2000, very fast rate of fire and a great gun.

However, you get a 12x sight from the start which is useless, so take that off and you are left with horrible iron sights that you can't aim down easily because the hole you look through is small. Then you get the ACOG which when mounted on the Famas takes up half your screen!!!

Basically, when you get the RDS, it will be amazing, but imo it's not quite as user friendly early on because the early scopes really hinder your sight, or are too slow to aim close quarters.

The HK23 aka the MP5 is close quarters shooting and owns at close quarters

That sounds like a lot of pain to go through to get the goods!

Probably worth taking it into a few TDM's and quickly level up the weapon to unlock some useful sights. It's kinda what I'm doing with some guns to see if they're worth sticking with and unlocking more addons

I unlocked the FAMAS and ditched the pointless sniper scope from the start. The iron sights are a bit awkward but it's really good once you get the RDS scope. I've ditched it for the moment as I'm using the M416 again with the noobtoob so I can unlock the Professional Russian gun.

It was funny last night seeing how many engineers are running around with the repair tool.

I unlocked the Let It Rain gun and I'm already part way through the Keep Your Head Down challenges... I haven't bothered with the QBB-95 though - too many guns, not enough time! As a result of trying to get suppression assists though I managed to get the ribbon for it. :D

The first engineer unlock seems really awkward which is a bit annoying seeing as some of the other guns are relatively easy to get. I've tried to kill a few people with the repair torch but it seems to need a fair bit of time to do any major damage - I'm guessing it's similar to the "nornal" knife and only does maybe 25 damage per "hit". Even if you find someone prone and facing the other direction it still gives them time to stand up, turn round, and shoot back. I'm guessing destroying an enemy vehicle with the torch is going to be even harder.

So, I've now unlocked the Famas, the QBB-95 and the HK53, all good guns, but why start with a x12 zoom? I've been trying to get the right addons for the QBB-95 for ages, but all the first unlocks are more more zoomed scopes or a flash suppressor:mad: seems odd that the unlock order for guns is different each time. I finally managed to get a decent red dot unlocked for it so at least I can see what I'm aiming at now:rolleyes:

I hope future DLC releases have different objectives/assignments as it certainly gives the game added variety:)

Unlocked the FAMAS, took of the ACOG thingy ;) but omg the iron sight is insane! It fills the screen. I'm just spraying where I last saw the enemy.

Also can't see FAMAS in battelog website?

Oh it has appeared now. 9 kills :( 41 to go til RDS salvation.

Great gun with rds. Even the Holo did too high though so when you run the scope covers the whole right side of the screen.

By the way, you get AGOG at 10 kills, the 1st one was a 12x ballistic scope.

The acog is better than iron sights on the famas I'd say.

1 more kill then. The iron sight is truely comical.

The attachment unlock sequence baffles me too (and I've never worked out what the difference is between a suppressor and a flash suppressor either)... I guess it's just to give the game a bit of variety? As soon as I've unlocked the RDS or Holo combined with a grip (if it has one) and a suppressor then that's usually all I stick to - can't be bothered with flashlights, infra red, lasers, sniper scopes, etc.

Flash suppressor hides muzzle flash which can be revealing of a snipers position. They still appear on minimap due to noise.

but most snipers use the ballistic scope which stands out like a flashlight anyway :confused:

I'm guessing this basically means in most cases suppressor > flash suppressor

Even in daylight while hiding in a bush on the other side of wake islands horse shoe?

At that distance would they even need a flash suppressor? Only another sniper would be able to kill them at that range (and if it were me I'd just fap the spot button until it pointed them out instead of looking for a flash or something rustling in a bush). If you can't see the ballistic scope reflection I doubt you'd see the bullet flash either.

Anyone unlocked the MG36? Just 2 lmg kills for to unlock this gun but will it be worth it? Seems like the assignment tab is now working on Battlelog

The new guns are showing up in Battlelog too now
