Suppressed L96 question

33 Replies 704 Views Created 14-12-2012

Trying my hand at a bit of sniping (instead of constantly being an engineer) and i quite like the feel of the L96, and i would prefer it to be suppressed as i will most likely adopt an aggressive more up close style of sniping. But after trying it out with the suppressor fitted it seems to lose so much damage that it was taking 2 good low to medium range headshots to kill an enemy. Is this right? is the suppressor drastically reducing the damage output of this weapon so much that it now takes 2 headshots to kill someone. i was getting a few headshots kills without the suppressor so i have removed the suppressor for now.

I'm certainly no sniper, so if i actually get a headshot in, i want the mutha to go down.

The real aggressive recon in this game isn't in the recon class,  its in the support class.  

 

The AS-VAL has the 0.0 initial aimed accuracy of a sniper rifle,  has the long range damage of an assault rifle (6 shots max to kill),  fires at 900rpm like a sub machine gun,  has a 0.5 first shot multiplier and burns through ammo so fast you'll have to play support class to use it effectively

 

The aimed accuracy figure applies when aiming down the sight and standing still,  that's when this gun performs best but as you get used to it ( I'm in the top 0% with this weapon ) you can fire between sprinting.  

 

The 0.5 first shot multiplier means the first shot you fire recoils only half the normal amount,  which means a very small amount of recoil for the first 2 bullets,  they are always going to hit.  The trick to AS-VAL mastery is short bursts of two or three rounds.  Its a similar trigger style to how you use your SKS - tap tap tap.

 

Oh and it has a built in silencer,  works well with the Xmag and your choice of scope.  Overall,  its silent, fast,  great for long range work,  but if you do have a close range contact it performs well.


 

Yeah the AS-VAL is another really good weapon, it sure does burn through some ammo though, and as you say "you'll have to play support class to use it effectively", however i use this gun when i'm playing Recon as i have faith that the support players will keep me adequately supplied with ammo.....Ha.....Ha Ha.....Ha Ha Ha.....Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha...HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

Sorry about that.......couldn't stop.......laughing.

Pro tip: Spawn as a Support, chuck down an ammo crate in a strategic place. Respawn as Recon when/If someone takes you out. You'll now have ammo, and hopefully keep your sanity :p

Merry Christmas.

SKS or M417 with holo sights I find the best for close support sniping, stick down a TUGS and pop heads :)

For the nerds of the forum you'll notice the lates vesion of the Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight with its 3 different sight options which is not availiable in BF3 

 

And here is a pitcure of the mighty Inkerman Platoon, with the D-Compamy flash delployed at F.O.B, Alexander on Final Fling

That was just before a covert SAS mission at Kiss gig. Obviously I was on over watch while they tailed their target

Aggressive recons should be using a semi auto or PDW
The increase in spread due to suppression it kills you. Also kills the sniper class and makes it pretty random.

 

And SKS has pretty easy recoil

Hai ^_ ^

Maybe you see me again soon.
