EDIT - this thread is a victim of it's own success and I have broken photobucket's 10GB/month bandwidth limit (on 12 Dec lol). To get around this I am transferring the OP images to Imageshack. Other images will stay on Photobucket, and should reappear 1st Jan 2012. Please be patient.
As in my Black Ops plots, the plots are the result of simulating the firing of 100 ten round bursts.
Rounds 1-3 are in green (the first round is always assumed to be on target). Rounds 4-10 are in blue.
Kick is assumed to reduce Viewkick by 20%
Selected RF plots have been added, but only where testing has verified the rate of fire increase (thanks for your work on this, fred).
Attachments will be added as solid data becomes available. Please be patient!
Note for Wii players - falufa has discovered that the guns fire at a different rate on the Wii; this will have an impact upon the recoil plots.

Important - Please refer to this excellent thread about the effects of GunKick and variations in how Viewkick is handled, as it may have an impact upon the accuracy of the recoil plots. denkirson.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=general&action=display&thread=4708&page=1
I'm afraid that I am NOT going to be updating the plots though. I don't think that the overall effect will be great, and I haven't played COD since Dec 2011!
MK14 plots at different fire rates can be found half way down page 3 of this thread.
RIP Black Ops Skorpion
The following chart shows the percentage of 2nd, 3rd and 4th shots that take place when the gun has fully recovered from the kick of the previous round, based upon simulation of 10,000 three round bursts. More to come.
Viewkick, Centerspeed and ROF info from
denkirson.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=general&action=display&thread=3239 (thanks to verccety), and
denkirson.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=general&action=display&thread=3235 (thanks to selarmor)
I have assumed that recoil is handled in exactly the same way as in Black Ops (a BIG assumption), as follows:
The calculations assume that viewkick is a velocity applied to the gun, and that centerspeed is acceleration applied to the gun to return to the starting point.
I have assumed that recoil occurs as a random linear distribution between the limits for vertical and horizontal kick as published in the links above.
The centerspeed figure is applied to this distribution; recentering occurring when kick <= centerspeed / 5 x fire time. The recentering is applied to the vertical and horizontal kick separately (there has been some discussion about this on this forum).
I have also assumed zero weapon sway at this stage.
