BF3, What's Your Favorite Assault Class Weapon?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I've been using the m416 since I got it. I have all the assault weapons except the L85A2 and the 2 co-op weapons. I've been thinking I should pick up one of the newer weapons (newer = better maybe?) but I don't know. What's a great close range run and gun and medium range assault rifle? What do you guys use?

As far as I'm concernd there is only one weapon in that class. AN-94, with Heavy barrel, Holo sight and fore grip. Keep it on two shot burst. Dubble tap mouse. It has a slightly lower rate of fire than most rifle's but has amazing accuracy even at stupid far target's, along with a very "predictable" amount of recoil. Allowing you to headshot even at extreeme distance's. Iron sights arn't bad on it too.

pare it with the G18 and your good to go.

Ive whored the AEK 971 like few others.... i've started using the F2000 just because at 15 service stars on the AEK i thought i should do something else.

Silencer........................

Really?!

On my part, I would say F2000. It's such a beast (much better than BFBC2's F2000).

I haven't been a fan of the heavy barrel but I'll give it a shot with the AN-94. Hows that combo do close range?

I'm a big fan of the kobra and the foregrip for sure.

The FAMAS is the best. The AEK-971 and M16A3 vie for second place.

They all do the same damage but the FAMAS has the highest fire rate (1000 RPM). The AEK-971 follows closely in firerate (900 RPM) and has a faster reload time. The M16A3 only offers 800 RPM but has a MUCH faster reload time than either. There is very noticeable advantage in the reload time for CQB with a large number of hostiles.

Statistically speaking the other assault rifles fall behind in terms of the mix of fire rate, reload time and handling.

The AN-94 is really good but handles very differently from the other assault rifles. It's suspiciously accurate and more for bursty medium-long range engagements and doesn't do so well up close. It's definitely not BFBC2's AN-94.

I forget the name but the started gun for RU with no scope is best for me. It feels very realistic and make me a better shooter.

m416. predictable recoil with a good ROF. the aek is a bullet hose and isn't as accurate at medium-long range, plus it burns through ammo. L85 is a solid weapon but the ROF is too slow for CQB. so overall i say the m416 is the best.

Depends on your aim. If you can manage to always aim at about their neck/upper torso dubble tap and they go down, G18 is the perfect backup for it.
