    Nice pics Bankrotas, thanks!

    Atm I still like the Flare more than the SVA88, but these pics will make me reconsider and re-evaluate my opinion, thx

    Flare is so goddamn slow. Hits like a truck though for sure.

    These pics confirm my impressions from using the SVA-88: amazing grouping, it's really easy to get headshots, and you can even hip fire with it if someone gets the jump on you.

    btw the SVA88 has the highest Vertical Recoil (alongside with the Flare) + the usual VS Horizontal Recoil (only the Ursa has a bit less). First Shot is same as Ursa, Flare has more.
    Where the SVA88 beats both Flare AND Ursa is Hipfire TTK (for obvious reasons (RoF)) by a large margin. As for ADS, they are pretty much alike... yet still, the upside definitely is: You can defend yourself much better at close range.

    I was gonna play it to Auraxium anyway, but still, thanks Bankrotas for the pics.

    Xxotic, your opinion on VX6-7 versus the Serpent?

    I'm using the VX6-7, and I'm considering the Serpent. But the odd for Vanu recoil pattern and the even lower bullet speed are both a concern. It has significantly better ADS accuracy though, almost as good hip fire accuracy and higher RoF.

    Hard to say tbh.

    I was using the Serpent for quite some time, and it's most noticeable downside versus the VX6-7 is it's MUCH longer reload (Short: 2.15 (VX6-7) vs. 2.65 (Serpent) and Long: 2.7 - 3.8 (that's quite somethin' ey)).

    The better ADS Accuracy still turns it into a more versatile weapon as far as I'm concerned - when u're running around shootin' fools, and get to a nice camping position in a tree or something, u'll be able to take down enemys much easier up to ~40-50m (as long as they stand or move slow).

    I liked it... but it really ain't that different to the VX6-7. If u like one of them, u'll most likely like the other one too.

    I love me the H-V45 so much. Since I've started using it and figured out how the Vanu weapons actually work (don't try burst fire) I've gotten more kills in one session than I ever had before and I'm still being a useful member of medics

    Thats not really a "nerf" pass so to speak but rather they are gonna give all maxes different options for different ranges. So hopefully its mainly a pass to make some of the VS max weapons better at close range and some better at long range rather than just nerfing the NC Max

    Would suggest it's not just about MAX weapons.

    I wonder what they will do with it. I suspect they will miss the mark by a mile and we will see a shift from shotguns in cqc to bunny hopping smg users.

    But then aggain, battlerifles are also under "balance" check for quiet some time now.

    I'm just happy that they finally deal with the scatmax situation. It took them goddamn long enough.

    I got the Lancer yesterday and it's really really good. We definitely should make a dedicated Lancer squad one of these days, i can't wait to see it in action in numbers.

    I'm 5 certs away from my next 1k, so I'm condering what gun to buy, if any. Lancer is definitely on my list, but that would pretty much also require me to get a better than default LMG.
