Default COD4 Weapons Preferances

Seeing as the game is so populer (for dam good reason) I thought I would ask what everybodies favourite weapons are, have a bit of a discussion etc

Personally I'm a huge fan of the G3. Low recoil, accurate and high power. Only draw back is its lack of fully automatic firepower (double tap is my friend here). Stick a red-dot sight on that baby and I'm away laughing. Plus its sexy.

Other than that I'm a fan of the Scorpian for the submachine class as long as I've got stopping power perk on and the first two sniper rifles are great.

Now for the weapons I can't stand using:

The M14: good stopping power but the recoil on it is terrible and the iron sights are horrible to use (unlike the G3), so a silencer or GL are out. Red Dot suffers badly from the recoil and I'll explain about ACOG's later.

The Barret: Much like the M14 the recoil of this weapon really kills it for me, it might as well be bolt action because that would at least make it more accurate as you can't get a good rate of fire up away because of the recoil. Its not as powerful as it should be and its inaccurate.

G36: Saying I can't stand using it is a bit harsh. I just don't see the good points about this weapon, its pretty meh in my opinion.

Mp44: I struggle to sue this weapon, the recoil is just to dam much for me.


Now onto my least favourite thing in the entire game: The ACOG scope. This pisses me right off as you can't stabilise the dam thing, it just waves all over the place, it may reduce recoil on the M14 but im not going to be able to get good accuracy anyway because it moves. I'm not sure why the developers didn't allow a steady function on it.

Anyway what are your thoughts?

I like the M16 myself, due its supreme stopping power, but it has a devastating drawback; the burst fire setting. Without the lacking rate of fire, and in conjunction with a red-dot site, I'd say this weapon would be the premier assault rifle.

My main weapon at the moment is an AK47 with red-dot and the Stopping Power perk. It has a good rate of fire and clip size, easy to handle with the red-dot, in addition to its respectable stopping power, I doubt there is a finer all-rounder.

My two primary weapons are the G36 with red dot sight and the basic barret. I do very very well with this combo but I also like the MP5, the Dragonov, and the SAW.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

when i was getting Red Tiger for all my assault rifles, the G3 was one of the last ones i had to use...and i fell in love with it! put a silencer on that baby and you've got one beautiful killing machine.

that being said, my best weapon is the Golden AK47 with anything on it...silencer, ACOG, red dot; my personal favorite being the ACOG.

I don't play COD4, though I would religiously use the G36. It's damn good looking, and I hold good memories of Operation Flashpoint with it. Plus, from my military knowledge, it has good stopping power, and is a good defensive Assault rifle (I'm a mobile camper on BF 2, which is the closest relation to COD4 I have).

I would also use the saw, because it's a flipping machine gun! Great when playing defense.

At the moment I'm using an R700, stopping power combo. Usually one hit, one kill, always handy.

My first and favourite gun is the AK47, with red laser dot sight and stopping power. You turn around a corner and can rip an enemy to shreds before they know what hit them.

I just run around with my Scorpian spraying things like crazy, its actually a crap gun but I love it anyway. My best gun would be the M16 with red dot site, its just an accurate gun with good stopping power.

Since i'm not a high lvl (7-8 i think, don't play at home) my current favourite is the MP5 with a reflex sight, and a silencer, penetration and extreme conditioning, love the rate of fire, silencer is good for covert sniping and the reflex sight is so much better than anything, much easier to play with :D

One little slip of your knife, and a lifetime of pain can just drain away.
