I fin hate tryhards that use the ACR, I mean extreme tryhards. Went up against a team who was using the ACR. My squad played them a few times and we got the win of course, but they raged on about who was on the top of the list etc. How can you take a loss and then brag about doing better because you had the most kills.
Domination for instance. People join just for the kills. I had a guy say to me, "I don't care about the win, at least I got the most kills........... Hmmm he's in an objective game bragging about the most kills. Makes no sense. and yes he was using an ACR.

Its an ok gun but Ill take the M4 and Scar over it honestly. Its definately not much better if any then those 2. Ill even take the AK over it as its damage comes in handy for longer burst shots.

I've actually been preferring the FAD lately. Among the lowest damage, yes, but high capacity ammo, high rate of fire, and accuracy is actually pretty good, even at range.

Hmmm, I've had a hard time using this gun. I've got a buddy that uses it faithfully and honestly I like the feel of the gun. The damage is terrible. I find myself getting outgunned because i have to put so many bullets into my opponent with this gun which makes me move away from using the gun. would you have any good setups for using this gun.
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 24, 2012 3:45 PM (in response to TwoClipz2YourLips)Re: Is The ACR The Easiest Weapon In COD?
I've mostly just had Kick and Holographic Sight and it fires quite accurately, even at a distance. Others would include things like Focus with Extended Mags and suppressor/Silencer, Hybrid Sights and suppressor, and such.
Perks can vary, but Sleight of Hand really helps with reloading or Scavenger to keep ammo up, Quickdraw for, obviously, faster aiming (it does have a little lag in ADSing), or Assassin (works well with the suppressor attachment), Stalker for movement while aiming and firing or anything else for the 3rd Perk.
The lesser damage is definitely noticeable, but not too difficult to work around once you get used to it.

Personally I think the Scar-L is a better gun than the ACR. It has different (higher) stopping power multipliers for headshots, so it stays a 2 shot headshot at longer ranges.
That being said, the ACR has to be up there with one of the easiest to use ARs in the game. It works well with any attachment, has a decent fire rate and a fast reload time. My first few prestiges that was my go to gun. As I learned the maps, learned the traffic patterns and got better at the game, I figured out that the ACR isn't the best AR for every situation, it simply does well in all of them. I look at the ACR like I looked at the Famas in Black Ops. Very good gun, works well in pretty much every situation, but isn't the best at anything.
So to answer your question, I think it is the easiest gun to use in MW3, but easy to use doesn't always mean the best.
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 24, 2012 4:57 PM (in response to dlundebjerg28)Re: Is The ACR The Easiest Weapon In COD?
Thats the best answere right there. Best all around sure. Better then the Scar, M4 Eh situationally I guess but the Scar is better in cqc I think. Actually all of them are easy mode. The Ak is the only one that is somewhat harder and even then it needs more damage and more recoil but meh...
I did use it for the first time awhile ago and it has pretty good damage at range even with a suppressor but the AK is just as good at range just a little harder to use..
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 24, 2012 4:57 PM (in response to RAMBONER)Re: Is The ACR The Easiest Weapon In COD?
I personally love the AK47 with Ext Mags. Definitely has a bit of recoil to deal with, but close to mid range when your running into multiple enemies its an absolute beast. The recoil doesn't bother me a ton, and you can always take out 3-4 guys in a clip with extended mags since it takes 4 shots maximum to kill. I've gotten more double and triple kills with the AK47 than I have with any other gun in this game.
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 24, 2012 5:00 PM (in response to casperthegamer)Re: Is The ACR The Easiest Weapon In COD?
I don't see the problem with using the ACR personally. I alternate between my classes but I enjoy the ACR. I have two attachments on it (silencer and a holographic scope) and I've never felt more comfortable. I don't understand why people would complain that this is a tryhard weapon...but then again I don't understand 90% of the dissing on people. In my opinion, the only tryhards are the jerks running around QS'ing, shooting javelins for absolutely no reason, and the people that complain about tryhards. In the mean time, my ACR and I will be having some good 'ol fashion fun.
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 24, 2012 5:38 PM (in response to casperthegamer)Re: Is The ACR The Easiest Weapon In COD?
Let me fix the stats up a little bit so people can understand it more.
Rate of Fire: 650RPM
Headshot Multiplier: 1.3x (This actually works from what I was able to calculate)
Movement Speed: 90% (Tied with all other AR's)
If there is anything you don't understand then just ask me.
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 24, 2012 6:23 PM (in response to casperthegamer)Re: Is The ACR The Easiest Weapon In COD?
What I want to know is, where is the M416 or any other NEW weapon featured in the show "Future Weopons". It just seems like they keep bringing back newer versions of old weapons. The Russians do have crazy modern assault rifles other than the AK47. Maybe ask a weapons expert for advice? Just a thought.....
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 24, 2012 8:34 PM (in response to zvers)Re: Is The ACR The Easiest Weapon In COD?
Maybe it never got the chance to show up. I do know the HK416 was featured in the Assault Rifles episode of the new Military Channel show, Triggers: Weapons That Changed the World, along with the M16, M4, SOCOM 16 (modernized M14 essentially), M14, AK-47, StG-44, M1 Garand (in a test for comparison to the AK-47 at range and closer up), and such.
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 24, 2012 7:44 PM (in response to Berlinwalled)Re: Is The ACR The Easiest Weapon In COD?
You are correct.
Their are 4 top guns in the AR class. Depending on your playstyle or situation these are the top guns. ACR, SCAR-L for any scenario, but if your playing more defensive or only getting engaged in 1v1 fights then the Type95 and MK14 are better.
I personally love the ACR and SCAR-L. But as soon as the new prestiges are released I will switch to hit prestige challenges to rank faster.
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 24, 2012 7:59 PM (in response to casperthegamer)Re: Is The ACR The Easiest Weapon In COD?
The AK74m isn't that different compared to the AK47 in the looks department.
AEK is a better option. Hell, a bullpup carbine/rifle based off of the AK family would be good.
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 25, 2012 12:20 AM (in response to casperthegamer)Re: Is The ACR The Easiest Weapon In COD?
i try to use any weapon that is decent all games tro level them up and stuff...i dont resort to the mp7 or acr unless either im trying for a moab or the kids im playing are trying their nuts off, then its over
Currently Being ModeratedMar 13, 2012 12:58 PM (in response to RaMBo)Re: Is The ACR The Easiest Weapon In COD?
i have never used the mp7 ? what i think is crazy is how i see alot of higher up prestige guys using handguns and getting 30 kills with them just running around and taking fools out .. i like the acr for certain maps like bakaara/downturn/underground/ .. but i find the ump45 i think thats the one i use that one when im just running around in like dome/mission but i feel like it has horrible range .. i have seen quite a few guys utilize the shotgun but i have had no luck with them .
Currently Being ModeratedMar 13, 2012 7:23 PM (in response to LordWarMachine)Re: Is The ACR The Easiest Weapon In COD?
Cause shotguns can be very inconsistent outside of those with the best types of connection with little to no lag and such.
Sometimes, I can get several Longshots in a row with a USAS-12, then people from the other side of the world join in and suddenly, I can fire 3 times or even a whole clip into people and only get hitmarkers, get killed, and see that only 1 of shots actually somewhat hit them while the rest apparently missed. =\
Currently Being ModeratedMar 13, 2012 7:53 PM (in response to casperthegamer)Re: Is The ACR The Easiest Weapon In COD?
The ACR 6.8 seems to make the most sense of its class compared to the AK47, G36C, and CM901. It stays on target 95 percent of the time without that random BS recoil. Remember MW2’s ACR? Even though it was just like the MP7, it was a little more balanced out because the AK47, SCAR, and TAR21 did not have much random BS recoil.
Also, do you think they should add the AK74M Assault Rifle in a future drop pack? It would have the following characteristics:
Damage: 41 Per bullet out of 100 health points
Damage at Range: 20
Rate of Fire: 65 - 750 RPM
Headshot Multiplier: 1.3x Per bullet
Draw Time: 1.12 Seconds
Reload Time: 2.4 Seconds
Magazine Size: 30 Rounds
Fire Mode: Automatic
Compared to AK47 Stats:
Accuracy: 60 .
Damage: 49 Per bullet out of 100 health points.
Damage at Range: 25
Rate of Fire: 50 689 RPM
Headshot Multiplier: 1.4x Per bullet
Draw Time: 1.15 Seconds
Reload Time: 2.5 Seconds
Magazine Size: 30 Rounds
Fire Mode: Automatic
Level Unlock: 68
I don't see you calling for a nerf of the ACR, but now it seems like there may be a fight over which gun people feel should get nerfed because of its ease of use. I've seen the MP7, the ACR & the PP90M1. Personally I don't think any of them should be nerfed, but there are people out there that feel they should.
Currently Being ModeratedMar 13, 2012 8:10 PM (in response to r8edtripx)Re: Is The ACR The Easiest Weapon In COD?
I don't feel the ACR needs one. It has overall balance, but it's not like it overwhelms other weapons, much less ARs, in those areas. It has a slightly lower firing rate than some other ARs and has noticeable drop off damage at range.
Even the PP90M1, despite my annoyance at seeing it constangtly, at least has the distinct disadvantages of range, and damage and accuracy at range, making it purely CQC which, sadly, a majority of these maps cater to with either being small in general or tons of clutter, so it's just the dev's fault in crappy mapmaking that it seems OP.
Only the MP7, another I see constantly (along with the UMP45 and P90) feels like it has nothing but advantages, but no disadvantages to itself. And no, comparing it to a weapon that specializes in an area does make it a "downside" for the MP7 itself. At the very least, as brought up by others, it wouldn't hurt to add a little more recoil to it.
Currently Being ModeratedMar 14, 2012 5:08 AM (in response to casperthegamer)Re: Is The ACR The Easiest Weapon In COD?
Call me crazy, but my fav AR is the M4A1. Ever had a gun that just seems to work for you?
I rotate my ARs every prestige. I have used the M4A1 in a couple. I like (no particular order)
MK14 (although I am not very accurate but I use it a lot in HC)
M16 (both because I am not accurate, so I am useless with 3RB guns in core)
Others are just ok. I mainly use SUBs because I hip fire a lot.
Currently Being ModeratedMar 14, 2012 8:18 AM (in response to casperthegamer)Re: Is The ACR The Easiest Weapon In COD?
Only because of the mobility hit you take, I have to give the easiest weapon in the game to the FMG9's. ACR, striker, MP7, all very easy guns tho. But the FMG9's... those are just in a league of their own. My friend on his joke account will just get in a group of people with SOH and steady aim with the FMG9's and yell TORNADO-CANE over the mic as he spins with his eyes shut and both guns going full auto. It's not uncommon for him to live and get a double kill, sometimes more.
