    Re: Most Used / Favourite Weapons

    My default load out is Euston primary, Kross secondary, attachments detailed below.

    All the weapons listed here work really well under different circumstances IMO (mainly range). From this list I'd like to see more accuracy for the Euston + CARB-9 (in fact I hardly ever use the CARB-9 these days due to inaccuracy, find the Kross much better). I'm not overly keen on the Gerund, but it fits nicely between the Euston and Rokstedi in regards to effective range IMO. Basically I'd like to see a tighter spread/more accuracy for the ARs, possibly even all weapons. That said, as it is right now most weapons work well for me when used at their most effective ranges - I'd just rather play with more accurate weapons generally.

    Of my favourite weapons I use the Euston most and the CARB-9 and Gerund the least.

    My detailed info follows below (I only use the one character):


    I play as a medium body type, specialising in the engineer and soldier roles. Currently deciding whether to max out these two classes or put the extra 5 points into medic skills (as I have all my *essential* skills for these two already).

    Below are my current weapon load outs:

    Close range:

    Euston - Extended mags, muzzle break, front grip*, C-U-Gone sight.

    CARB-9 - Extended mags, muzzle break, bayonet*, adjusted iron sights.


    Medium/Close Range:

    Euston - Extended mags, muzzle break, front grip*, C-U-Gone sight.

    Kross - Extended mags, muzzle break, front grip, adjusted iron sights.


    Medium/Long Range:

    Rokstedi - Extended mags, muzzle break, C-U-Gone sight.
    Gerund - Extended mags, muzzle break, YeoTek sight.

    Kross - Extended mags, muzzle break, front grip, adjusted iron sights.


    Long Range:

    Barnett - Green Eye scope.

    Kross - Extended mags, muzzle break, front grip, adjusted iron sights.


    *have been using the Euston without the front grip as I prefer that look + no twisted wrist, but trying it out as ideally I'd like to reduce the spread at range. - EDIT, back to no front grip again, due to the appearance .

    *only just started testing out the bayonet, see how it goes. Will give the speed sling a whirl once I unlock it (BMO2, lvl 20...).

    *Ritchie
    *Sea Eagle - pre patch
    *Carb - pre patch
    *Drognav

    Occasionally I would try the others, but these are the ones I use.

    Drognav is probably the most enjoyable gun to use of the lot, but theres only small segments on maps you would actually pull it out. Given the map restrictions, it becomes stale quite quickly. Not a gun issue though

    The second best option is the Ritchie - its a gun i'll start a fight with, then switch to one of the crappy smgs to finish.

    Sea Eagle - pre patch this thing destroyed everything.

    Carb - pre patch... best option available amongst the smgs. The smgs imo are not enjoyable to use at all. Spray and pray city, but as a Light you have to choose one.

    Ive pretty much uninstalled the game due to the gunplay and the overall speed of the gameplay.
    My opinion is lower the spread, give more ammo, lower the rate of fire and lower the damage... and add the lacerator as free dlc.

    Drognav because the random spread while using ADS is less apparent and as such less annoying than most weapons which shoot circles around what the ironsight is on at the time of the trigger pull after the first 2 rounds. Bullets not going where my iron sights are on when the trigger is pulled is extremely annoying for me. I spent a few years of my life firing real weapons in the military and brink feels completely unnatural when ADS, which most games manage to get right.

    I think hip firing spread is fine though.

    Re: Most Used / Favourite Weapons

    In terms of the overall effectiveness of each gun, or practical uses, is there an accurate metric to determine what weapons should or should not be used the most? I'd be curious to know if there was a general guide to how things should be.

    Re: Most Used / Favourite Weapons

    i track my stats using the stats site. i made a spreadsheet that calculates damage/hit (how effective the weapon is assuming i hit), damage/shot (how effective i am with that particular weapon), and then multiply these values by the clip-size & ammo max, to get a sense of the max damage possible per clip/overall.

    the damage/shot helps me decide what weapon i'm most effective with, and the damage-max helps me think about AR vs. SMG vs pistol, etc. then i factor in situational usage based on both map and the current objective (e.g. tampa is great for a close quarters offense vs. the bulpdaun for longer range), and i rarely use the same weapon loadout for a whole match, much less a set of them.

    Re: Most Used / Favourite Weapons

    Ok, so we have somewhat of a gage on the least used weapons. Does that mean that the weapon tweaks will target enhancing these specific guns nobody uses, or will we get across the board changes? Just wondering what's the plan or something.

    Re: Most Used / Favourite Weapons

    I usually play Med as I can then use 2 SMGS as "primarys" basically....

    Bulpaun (Extendedclip+speedsling) + Kross (drummag+speedsling) are my fav's....

    I'm also suprised there aren't many that use the roksteadi, that weapon is an absolute killer as its accurate as hell as long as you tap-shoot at a nice pace....sorta like a fast firing sniper rifle.

    I really prefer it to the Barnett and that other sniper rifle even tho it doesnt have as good range I can get off multiple accurate shots b4 a Barnett user has finished with the recoil of his first shot.

    Granted it is somewhat situational in that I will only use it if im going to play from behind the rest of my team, ( I use rapid-fire on it even tho its best not to quickly shoot it for long range, but short range when i get caught out the rapid fire helps down even smg users at close range most times especially if your engi.


    Still, even tho Bulpaun and kross are my fav weapons to use, that doesn't mean I don't want them to be changed... every gun needs to be somewhat accurate imo just like QW weapons are done.....
    I hate just holding the trigger on my kross and going LOL I WIN..............the problem I see is that you would have to "cut" a few of the weapons out of the game to get any kind of variety without having 6 guns being "exactly" the same just different models....

    No surprise to see the Carb top of the pile here. I am surprised however that the Galactic is so low down. I swear by this gun. Its a suberb all rounder.

    I think the issue is that 75-90% of people who stated in this poll that they are running with the Carb-9 are doing so with a light body. Therefore, they don't use the Galactic because they can't carry two SMGs.

    It's also the same reason why the Sea Eagle and Ritchie are number 3&4 on the list, after the Kross. The Kross gets lots of love because it's stable a bullet hose with the drum mag. Galactic is more of a trigger tapper.

    I have been using the Galactic recently as my 2nd to my Mossington with my medium Engy char. It is great for cleanup duty.

    I use the Galactic as a secondary to my FRKN. I hardly use the FRKN and end up using the Galactic for almost everything.

    What they can do to the FRKN is increase its damage once again.

    Retain its ADS accuracy and precision before the patch but keep the accuracy it has while non-ADS after the patch.

    Also increase the benefit of the foregrip to the FRKN. The gun jumps randomly sometimes, which is hard for precision shots.

    I still feel the popularity of guns directly correlates to the popularity of the Light Body Type.

    Re: Most Used / Favourite Weapons

    I only play as a light body so my weapon usage is very limited. I have the most fun playing with the Sea Eagle or the Ritchie. I rarely use iron sights and those 2 pistols put the bullets where I want them to go in a more satisfying manner than the SMGs do. I tried using the light rifles like a rail gun but the bullets fly all over the place when hip fired.
