Your trigger finger is ridonkulous! I can max out the fire rate on some guns without double tap... but I dunno if I can twitch a trigger that fast!
Lol you make me want to iPad video upload my fire rate...
Oh, I actually had G3 confused with the G36. The G3's iron sights are decent, and that was my go-to gun for hardcore. One shot kill.
I've never ever experienced double tap increasing kill-potential in close range though, and my buddy and I both had around 60days' worth of playtime on cod4 each. Giving up that extra bullet to kill people in favor of a faster fire-rate wasn't the best. It's especially not good with silencer, as silencer already decreases the gun's effective range.
My favorite classes were, at the time:
M16 red dot, fragx3, stopping power, deep impact
P90 silenced, fragx3, stopping power, extreme conditioning
ak47 red dot, fragx3, stopping power, steady aim
Oh trust me, by effective range I'm not talking about the bar graphs the in-game screens give you. I looked up all the true numbers on all the weapons years ago. I never used AK47 at range anyways, so I preferred the red dot sight for more vision.
There's actually been math and calculations done. The only time double tap wins out over stopping power is on 30/20 guns at range. Besides that, stopping power always kills faster. (except M60 where stopping power is useless)
This all takes into effect a no-lag scenario, so there's always the possibility of double tapping playing better with a certain latency issue than stopping power, but that's a case-by-case scenario dependent on the connection itself. I know there'd be no reason for me to use P90 over MP5, and MP5 was actually my go-to rush weapon before christmas hit after cod4's release. After christmas though, I had to switch to P90.
No sorry I didn't catch the Star Wars reference I can be a tad dense sometimes if I am caught up in the story. Laskey's thing did remind me of Dead Space yes. Of course there Issac's armor alwayed looked like a pre-spartan armor to me. Of course there are not a lot of directions you can take with space armor.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I did love the story but I am sucker for Halo stories. I even felt bad for Chief at the end of the game. It very much can feel like a sci-fi soap opera. Which I guess OG Star Wars basically is as well. I enjoyed the after credits moments wish more games did that. The only thing I was confused on was the main villain. But I never read the books or researched any of waypoint before the game dropped. The part with Chief and the Librarian cleared some of it up but not enough I felt.
After having to suffer through half of AC3 it was a welcome light fun romp with excellent shooting mechanics. The bob and weave spastic game play of COD/MW/BLOPS just leaves me stressed, Halo just feels like a comfortable old friend. I know I am probably alone in this thread on that feeling.
I almost snatched a Recon 3D up for 30 bucks last months just to say I tried it, but with no DTS decoding I didn't see the point because it has the same tech as the astro at the most basic level. I wouldn't have probably heard it in Reach since my setup was new then and I wasn't double amping at that time.
Still debating whether to upgrade my amp, my dt990pros or try a bigger nicer closed set over my CALs with the HM5 pads.(Which I FRIGGIN love to death)
My favorite classes:
AK47 with no attachments
Ak74u with no attachments
RPD with grip
r700 with no attachments.
m1014 with no attachments.
I used stopping power on all of them except for the shotgun. I used juggernaut with that class. I also used RPG's with all of my classes lulz (except for the RPD, because the grip takes that option away). I liked the 74u because it had the bullet penetration capability of an assault rifle. I'd rarely ever see anyone else using it. Pretty much everyone else used "MP5 host connection" as we nerd-rageingly referred to it. lol
We mostly played team tactical (and I played a lot of cage matches), so I usually ran with dead silence as well. Sound whoring was HUGE in CoD4. Now you can barely hear people, or in the case of BO2, you can't hear people jumping up and down behind you even when using the Awareness perk.
OH ok I understand the SW reference now. Only part I didn't enjoy.
I see where you are going with ME now too. Thanks for clearing that up and it does make perfect sense. Guess the Didact is going to be Jason Vorhees.
Yup I will do so when I get home tonight.
