I have noticed the pistols are powerful at any range, have found 2 or 3 hits point blank or from a distance will do it every time

New question: F2000 vs Famas? I hate the looks on the Famas.

The best PDW is the PP-19. It vastly outclasses the MP7. The PDW-R is probably a close second. USAS-12 is up there if you like shotguns.

The FAMAS is much better than the F2000. It's not as good for long-range engagements as its fire rate is really too high (1000 RPM -- highest in the game).

I'm aware of the PP-19 and PDW-R, but even they don't seem that good. Maybe I should just settle with the Famas, even thought I hate going mainstream. I though sub machine guns were supposed to excell at close range, from my experience they don't even come close to assault rifles in any way. What a shame.

In real life that happens cause an SMG is compact and small, making it ideal to be used arround corners etc since it is easier to maneuver compared to assault rifles/machine guns.
But dont get fooled they arent close to the fire power that the other ones have, the stopping power of the bullets is bigger.

They need to bring in a .45 ACP chambered "Big Mac" MAC-10 machine gun and give it the knock down power that it should have. Completely useless at somewhat longer ranges it'll plant you instantly up close. Big rounds = big holes....

The PP-19 is terrible, its a P90 that does less damage.

Best PDW's I've used have to be the P90 and the AS VAL. That said most of them are pretty useful, the MP7, P90, PP-2000 are great at close range and the UMP, AS VAL, PDW-R are better at medium range. Don't expect to outclass an assault rifle though, especially if the person using it is any good.

F2000 vs FAMAS? Not sure on that, because I'm not a fan of either because of the huge ROF.

@ Cakewalk_S

The AS VAL fires 9x39mm rounds, bigger than those that are fired from pistols. They're designed to be armour piercing, even while subsonic. I feel as if it should do a bit more damage though, it's the most like an assault rifle but still not as good as one.

As for the support class. I used the QBB-95 and the MG36 and loved both. They're a good choice if you want something like an assault rifle. I used both with a 3.4x scope, silencer and foregrip. If you don't have those unlocked the M27 and the RPK are pretty similar in feel. If you prefer to sit back and use a bipod you're probably best off with the PKP because of the damage.

I keep having BSODs in BF3, i loosened the timings a bit, but it still crashes, just with a different code this time (OxD1), i was going to loosen the timings to 9-9-9-24 (back to stock) and just clock the memory back up, and see if that fixes anything, because when i received the other 8Gb i just plugged it in, and didn't tweak it out, most games it worked fine though.

Any other ideas?
post #32978 of 52874
can you guys recommend me 2 guns per class?

one for cqc and another for long range.


assault: FAMAS / AEK-971 for qcq, L85A2 / M16A3 for long range.

engineer: SCAR-H / G36C for cqc, M4A1 / A-91 for range

i have not really played much support and recon so i cant recommend anything for them just yet

Assault: FAMAS (CQC), AN-94 (ranged)
Engineer: M4A1 (CQC), A-91 (ranged)
Support: PP-19 (CQC; yes it's better than all the LMGs at this), M27 IAR (ranged)
Recon: SKS (CQC), M98B has the highest bullet velocity and lowest bullet drop but I prefer the Mk11 and L96

Support: I'd use AS VAL instead, it's definitely better than the PP-19. It's pretty good at (med)range as well, if not too trigger happy.
