to use magnum ammo or not(BC2)

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
I just unlocked magnum ammo in bc2 and ive read conflicting things about it. some people say its good to use all the time. some people said it only makes sense to use on certain guns, other say long range it doesnt do anything. its confusing can anyone enlighten me?

Works better on guns with high fire rate like the F2000, brings it up to a usable standard. Otherwise body armour is the intelligent choice.

I use magnum ammo on the M95, it makes it a one hit kill at any range - even +500m.

only on hardcore.

use magnum or body armor.

body armor is the better choice as it often allows you to survive 1 - 3 bullets, while magnum lowers your bullets to kill by 1.

its a flat 25% to your damage. so based on distance, the damage you would normally do is increased by by 25%.

rate of fire doesnt make a difference. all the weapons are balanced by time to kill. high rate of fire weapons deal lower damage per bullet because they fire faster, and high damage weapons have a slower rate of fire to make up for the high damage. Either way its a 25% increase for damage with either weapon.

personally recommendation is body armor, i hold a 2.12 kdr and i run body armor 95% of the time. It allows you survive tubes and gustavs in more situations, and if usually wins the fight in a magnum vs body armor shootout.

I think the magnum bullet is better for close range, not long range. but that's just me.

I dont touch it!
I take a lot of pride in my accuracy with my m24 and mainly get headshots.
I play "soft" core because too many suck ass recon players get one hit body kills.

It reminds me of people using stopping power on CoD.

so no one uses the heavy barrel or whatever its called for more accuracy :|
