Ive been wondering what do people think when I kill em with different guns. Do they think I'm a real badass when I kill em with knife or some other hard to use or crappy gun.. like raffica? Do they think I'm a pússy if I camp with sniper or get cheap kills with carl gustav or Skill Cannon?
For me it's like I don't care if someone kills me with gustav etc. "cheap" weapon but I do 'respect' guys who play with guns like G3, M14 (sucky on PC), Pump action shotguns etc. And I actually quite often find myself thinking that "woah nice headshot" when someone kills me from 200 meters away with sniper while I'm running and jumping around like headless chicken to prevent it. What guns do you respect/disrespect the most?
Also, what is most respected class in your opinion? For me its 1. Engineer / Medic 3. Assault 4. Recon
I would only respect things like pump action shotguns, the revolver, defib, repair tool, m14, g3, m1 garand, and the 40mm shotgun. Everything else is easymode.
Oh, come now. You can be more elitist than that, you're not doing it right. The M1 is way too good for a WW2 weapon, the G3 is lolmode for c4-recon/assault players, the revolver has too much range, the repair tool shouldn't kill people, the Defib gives medics two melee cooldowns, and the pump shotguns are like omg wai op with slugs.
It's the player, not the gun.
(Even playing devils advocate, I couldn't think of anything nice to exaggerate about the M14)
Luckily, you can't hear anyone outside your squad, so it doesn't really matter as much. Anyways, I'd say anything but the M60, GOL, XM8, knife, and the guy who somehow sneaks around the entire other team despite sprinting the whole time and shotguns anyone he can find are worthy of some "respect". Though in the latter 3's cases, they're just annoying.
