Guest keener Posted June 24, 2013 Share Posted June 24, 2013 I'm not sure this is the best place in the forum to post this link however I couldn't figure a better one. I'd like to start a discussion on your favorite/most affective loadout for each class. With this thread we will begin the conversation about the Assualt class. Feel free to post multiple setups and cite each one's advantages and disadvantages as well as it's most affective style and setting. I'm a level 20 so I've yet to unlock many weapons however I've settled into an assualt role most of the time as I enjoy the medic role as well. My balanced loadout: M16A3 with Foregrip and Heavy barrel, defibs, supression, holo site. The M16 is a great weapon and it's well documented how powerful it is at short and medium ranges. I find 7-10 bullet bursts will serve this weapon well. I'm not expert on the foregrip and heavy barrel and it's affects so as I learn... I'll add to this thread. My open map (intermediate range) loadout: M16A4 with foregrip and Heavy barrel, defibs, supression, holo site OR Kobra. This loadout Is the one I take when we're in a more open environment and let me tell you, after you figure out how to burst fire, it's deadly! This thing is scary accurate so if you're more than 40-50 yards away from your target and he's sporting another assualt weapon... you should fare well! Take this one to the practice range and figure out that tap tap tap rythm and view the impressive bullet spread! My Close quarters loadout: Right now, I still use the M16a3 which is my balanced setup most, but I've just unlocked the F2000 so i've gotta get the attachements unlocked and it'll surely become my close quarters gun. I read that a flash supressor and the laser makes this a close quarters-stealth-hipfiring champion. Watch videos of the F2000 with the flash supressor (to keep you off the mini map) and the laser to help with hipfiring accuracy... It's an impressive full auto spray machine. With the combo of being stealth due to using the supressor and not having to aim down your sites in close quarters with the accuracy of the hip fire laser boost, this 850 bullets/min gun is the quickdraw champion. Keep the enemy close and you win! Looking forward to trying this one out as I've never been great at close quarters although I've gotten way better using the M16A3 lately by spraying more bullets instead of my instinct that tells me to tripple tap. I know there is the AEK and the M416 that also are great guns... these that I've listed are just the ones that suit my style as I like the sound, feel and cerainly their performance. A quick note about your own personal development as a bf3 player: I see a lot of threads on the net asking what's the best setup, what should I use? And so, here's my opinion: it doesn't really matter that much. IF you have good tactical awareness and run with a good bunch of blokes like the =US= that are ever learning to work together as a squad, then slight differences in loadouts won't matter that much. The reality seems to be that each class has 3 or 4 loadouts that are extremely competitive and then it's a matter of having the awareness of picking the loadout that suits your environment, knowing it's limitations/pros/cons and then working together with your squad. I will say this, as a casual player without much ability and having not been in a squad for a LONG time... I didn't take too much interest in my loadout... I just kinda played bf2 and vietnam as a stress reliever and something to just brainlessly do.... It's different for me now... which brings me to this important conclusion. If you want to know what's the best loadout for you... then do some reading, watch some youtube videos on best loadouts etc... and then test them for yourself. Test them in game, test them in an empty server where you use the landscape like a firing range. Fire full auto... fire in bursts.... all at different ranges. BASICALLY, JUST TAKE AN INTEREST IN KNOWING A FEW LOADOUTS and then it will come to you. Just doing this will help you understand your effictive kill zones and how you should be playing with any given loadout. Then take that knowledge and apply it to your gaming with the group. Know that when you get on the Operation Firestorm or the railroad maps that you'll be encountering longer distances between you and your acquired targets (Unless you're defensively camping in the building beside the flag). So take the loadout that's appropriate for you style and your surroundings. I know much of this is elementary to most of you but the format can also be a tool for new recruits/visitors/rookies etc... I hope you all enjoy this exercise as much as me. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
