M16A3 removed from Battlefield 4 multiplayer, DICE confirms
Uh oh DICE not supporting noobs anymore.
I think its a M16A4 or I may be wrong, M4A4 its the new standard Carbine Of the US Army they stop production of M16 long time ago. I wish they would add an AK 47 russian folding stock wook and black, no camo no ak blah blah, no just ak 47 color black ith wood, simple. My all time favorite and the G36.
Sad to see it leave, I know I killed a lot of people with mine, but I've moved to the AN-94, and I keep hearing "too much recoil" but I've learned to master the recoil and I wouldn't swap it for another for the time being BF4 bundle!!
The gun wasn't even that good lol I primarily used the F2000
I'm okay with them taking away the m16a3, as long as they replace it with a new gun... how about the xm8??? :D http://www.poeghostal.com/w...
"M16A3 removed from Battlefield 4 multiplayer, DICE confirms" Throws kb/m across the room "That's Bullcrap, what am I gonna use now"? turns head and smiles at M4 "Your my baby now" LMAO
U are sick in head
Il stick with my L8 Assault rifle
AUG for the win
G3A3 is so beast f**k the M16A3. 7.62x51mm is for real men anything smaller is reserved for pussies
Meh I use A91 , acwr, mtar, p90 , aek, m40a5 , m7 , anything u put in my hands ... Never used that gun, dont care . I hear its so good but never noticed I got killed by it consistently so therefore dont care
I am gonna just stick with what ever gun i have on , i play engineer and sniper so i dont think i would have even used a m16 lol
I don't get the controversy. Yea, the M16A3 was the best all around gun in BF3. Then it got patched along with the M416 and the M416 crushed it in every aspect. @ovnipc I agree, but take it a step further allow stocks to be customizable for all weapons. I wonder how they are going to handle the G36 since they nerfed it's ROF.
what? The m16A3 was one of the only guns in the game to not get drastically messed with through out BF3's life span... Its not even a debate...if you ever played a platoon match on an infantry-centric map (bazaar, Seine,...metro...)...there was NO alternative to the M16A3 after the last bit of patching...of course there were the rogue guys that thought there were being cool by using something else, but if you followed symthic and knew the fundamentals of the actual weapons instead of intangible 'feel'...the m16A3 was, by far, the most advantageous weapon in multiple situations...with very few draw backs... least recoil, highest accuracy, 2nd to longest range, in the top for bullet speed, and in the top 3 for cadence...Shortest in AR reload time, which was faster than some pistols...Its time to kill was a few ms lower than the famas, aek, and f2000...but far superior accuracy, recoil, overall ease of use...that was never a tangible con...
SKS ALL DAY FOREGRIP, Holograpghic SCOPE, and silencer...garanteed killsALL-DAY....Approaching 15,000 kills and counting!!!!!
Ive seen the lastest build on bf4 & the m416 looks like its better the m16a3
Its BF2 all over again players bitched about the M16 back then and got it removed.
I mainly used the M416 anyways. I don't like the M16 in any FPS game. Just not my style. I'd rather manually burst fire and control my own shots than have the gun do it for me. More more variety that way.
Taking out a versatile weapon means they don't support noobs. Totally makes sense, like making a fish and drywall sandwich.
They are removing it, but it will come back as dlc i Bet
FAMAS FTW !!
I use the M416, because I thought it was better than the M16. Im suprised to hear that people thought it was over powered.
Suprised? Lol. The M16 is the best allrounder weapon in BF3 and is one of the most used weapon in the whole game. It wasn't OP, but it was good in any situation. The last 10 games i played, 70% of the whole enemy team ran around with this weapon :(.
Bad Mistake DICE. It used to be the top tier weapon but The new OP weapon is the M416. Why? Kobra, Foregrip, Heavy Barrel and shoot it in bursts of 5 = No Recoil gun.
lol, that sucks. Usually I get killed by snipers or tanks...cant say I have any problem dealing with most infantry regardless of what weapon they have..unless of course its a sniper picking me off from a distance where my M416 cant return the favour. @Trunkz I have to dissagree about the M416 being overpowered..maybe its lag but I still have to put quiet a few slugs in enemy players to put them down.
@ The realness http://battlelog.battlefiel... Thats my friend in a TDM. I'll tell you right now once you try it and figure out the feel to the 5 shot bursts you'll understand.
trunks..is your freind that marlborough guy? If so, that is a very impressive K/D...and your gonna hate me for saying this...but thanks for the tip!I am intruged to tey that lay out now! I usually just go with grenadelauncher/foregrip and red dot sight. I keep it fully auto but fire in bursts.and squad suppress fire perk. please dont be mad at me! but you know how it goes on battlefield. ;)
@ Trunks- Using the forgrip on the 416 actually makes it worse and less accurate. How don't you know that?
It is the default weapon so it makes sense that it is more common people start unlocking attachments right away and they stick with it instead of having to start over with a new gun.
As a top clan in bf3 on ps3 the op guns were as followed First it was the Famas being horribly op then it went to laser pew pew m16 then to the bullet spewing Aek Famas M16 Aek Dice needs to learn to stop balancing and tweaking guns that never needed to be touched in first place. So what if not everyone uses it. I stopped playing the game when I was maxed out and they made that m416 op
Aek is my fav gun in BF3.
Aek was perfectly fine. They shouldn't of even touched it from the initial stock aek. The only guns I really got annoyed about was the m26 dart and Famas. I remember being the guy that started the dart thing lmao way back on ps3 when no one knew lol
Famas wasn't OP the thing went everywhere but if you knew how to use it then it was a beast. It's was fantastic for close battles
if you're saying the Famas was never OP, you simply never used it when B2K came out...it was patched just a month or so later, so its reign didn't last as long as something like the usas w/ frags did...but at B2K's release...it was simply ridiculous... grip, holo, suppressor...no looking back...DICE even admitted there was a recoil reduction bug, as well as a damage bug with the above set up...the FAMAS didn't have a decrease to bullet speed, or distance, and therefor the damage modifier in place when using a suppressor...1000 rounds/min out to 980 meters with pinpoint accuracy...all with nearly complete silence haha...you could drop anyone without trying, the only time you'd ever get killed when carrying one was because of the 4 second reload...
