even so, there is the small niche of the 55 meter headshot and the 63 meter two hit kill, and absolutely no need for fore grip, also you get full damage with silencer instead of the SKS which drops back down to pre patch levels, but with a 6 meter drop off start
Yeah, yeah, yeah. ;D Honestly, even though the SKS got a major buff, I think it's still pretty even. The semi-auto fix alone made the regular semi-auto snipers a helluva lot better. When I was grinding my QBU, the RoF was pretty impressive. So much so that I didn't feel gimped at all until I was shotgun range. I haven't tried the M39 since the patch, and I don't really plan to. Although I can imagine it's pretty crazy at the moment. If I had to be a full time Recon, it'd be a pretty tough choice between M39 and SKS; and that's coming from an SKS fanboy.
Finally got to try the new patch today. Didn't get to try much yet, but it's like a whole new game. Really disappointed with the buck/flechette change. On the other hand, the new M93 is sexylicious, and complements my G3/SCAR loadouts nicely. Didn't use them much though, because now I'm grinding the VAL to ExMags (at least Metro's good for that). There's definitely enough newness to keep the game fresh until CQC map pack.
Is it just me, or does the repair tool on Battlelog look really weird?
