That AK 74M is a beast, super accurate even when full auto. Pretty sure I just run it with the HB, maybe bipod? It has a little bit slower rate of fire, and is extremely manageable. I think it handles even better than the M16, easier to keep on target at least. Not that the M16 is hard, but the AK seems even better. Of course the slower rate of fire makes it a bit of a loser in any close quarters fighting, but mid to long range it is exceptional.


Also finally got to try the JNG. I usually play on a Bolt and Knife only server which is a lot of close quarters, with some medium range thrown in. I'm not sure I like the JNG for the real CQ stuff on Noshar, the M40a5 which was my previous goto seems to have the best reload speed but I'm not sure. Not really used to the JNG but it did pretty well. It was funny running it with iron sights for so long, the map went to Kharg island and some enemies were getting on the warehouse. I managed to pick off a guy at the very top when I was at the far back of the map using just the Irons. All I could see was his head which was probably about 4 pixels on the screen, the iron sight dot on the gun was actually larger than his head biggrin.gif Got him on the 3rd hasty shot, he probably didn't like that much if he even noticed haha.

Looking at getting a joystick for flying. You guys have any recommendations? Is it better than a mouse?

You use the mouse at the moment?
Let go of it and use the keyboard entirely (arrow keys and WASD) - you'll improve once you get used to it, it's much more responsive. As for joystick choices, any decent Thrustmaster one with throttle and twist rudder control will do as fighter jets in BF3 have very little controls and not much realism at all anyway! tongue.gif
I have one such joystick that cost me £18 and that was with 12 buttons on it too. I don't really use it though. It has been in a suitcase the past two years.

EDIT: This is the one I have:

A bit more expensive now it seems but not much!

That was my favorite gun (along with the L85) right after the big patch, when you needed a super accurate gun to shoot through suppression, but now that they toned down the suppression and I've gotten more used to it, the AEK just owns too much to use anything else except on maps where I know I will be a lot range constantly. The AEK is tough to master, especially at medium-long range, but once you do, it is a beast. I'm surprised everyone is crying about the M16 and not the AEK, I guess it will probably be the next weapon that gets nerfed because all the little crybabies in the game want every gun to be exactly the same.

Can somebody help me? I am at my witts end trying to solve this. I was playing Bf3 max out, vsync on with no issues. All of a sudden, today I have bad mouse stutter with vsync. To fix it, I either have to disable CF or disable Vsync. I can't have both. Nothing changed with my PC so I don't understand why the issue is happening. I've even reformatted the PC but still having issues.

I hate to say this but.. never ever play with Vsync? rolleyes.gif That is my opinion.. but it causes massive input delays. You may also want to try rolling back drivers. It is interesting that it goes away with disabling crossfire or disabling vsync. Nvidia was having driver issues with microstuttering with vsync on with the 6xx cards but they fixed it with a driver fix. Maybe that is the same thing.

Turn off Vsync is my suggestion, that ish makes you a much worse player, mouse input is awful because of it.

Do you have a 120 hz monitor? if you do, never have vsync on =D

Just making sure... you are saying the keyboard is better than a joystick for flying? I hadn't heard that, but if you believe it, I will definitely try it out next time I play. I am using a mouse now and I just can't get the hang of it lol.

Wait, so should anyone have vsync on ever for BF3? I do now but if I will get benefits with it off, I will turn it off. I just assumed on would be better tongue.gif

I prefer Vsync and CF on together. I had no issues until now so it does not make sence.
