What are your thoughts on the new "Back to Karkand" weapons? I'm on PS3 and I realize many of you won't be getting it for another week, but I just thought I'd kick off the discussion.
I've locked the QBU-88 / Type 88 sniper rifle and so far it feels very good. It could just be my imagination but it feels like a slightly lower recoil, slightly faster shooting version of the current semi-auto snipers (not including the SKS). It also comes with the Flash Suppressor unlocked by default, which I can't tell is a glitch or intentional.
On the other hand my brother unlocked the QBB-95 / Type 95 LMG and his first impressions are that it has way too much recoil and he hates the iron sights, but I guess we will see once the official stats are out. Also, strangely enough, he says the first scope you unlock with it is the 12x Ballistic scope, which makes no sense at all. I heard someone say the same thing about the FAMAS, so I wonder if this was unintentional.
Unfortunately, I tried using the QBB-88 sniper rifle last night and it was completely glitched up each time I tried. Whenever I would use the weapon it would appear as if I was holding it high above my head, or as if my viewpoint was coming out of my waist. It was completely unusuable, even when sighted in. I hope they fix that soon.
