I'm trying to get my ar's diamond and I have the semi auto and swat left. I'm just trying to get select fire for all three of them and then I'll be good to go. I play HC so I shot usually kills anyhow, I just feel more comfortable having a full auto weapon .
Select fire is for semi auto noobs. Learn to use the gun w/o select fire it'll fire faster and make you a better player. Select fire-FAL are one of the most annoying setups in BO2, I hardly ever see anyone without select fire unless they are trying to unlock it.
Your an idiot.
FAL with selectfire and target finder is cheating. i Know because its my favorite weapon to annoy people. its unstoppable i swear even in noobs hands. but dont nerf it because i LOVE OP weapons. Love it because i get a reaction from ragers using it lmao. not so much the smr.
Exactly...I find the Select Fire is more for LAZY people more than anything. Otherwise, anyone with a semi-decent trigger finger can easily fire the FAL or SMR much faster than when it's full auto with Select Fire, thus freeing up the slot for a more beneficial attachment. Only the SWAT-556 really feels like it has a noticeable improvement with Select Fire. Even the M8A1 and Chicom feel just fine without it to me.
I actually find the FAL-OSW with Select Fire to be cheap, but the SMR with Select Fire to be quite fine. I just don't like that the FAL maintains almost perfect accuracy, even after the patch update. But yet, the SMR gets a slower fire rate with more recoil, even on Semi-Auto as well as the worse hip fire in the assault rifle category. Anyway, my rant is done now.
SWAT-556 is horrible with Select Fire, don't use it. You go from having an M16 to a Type 25 (not a good exchange). The SWAT-556 has incredible range but with Select Fire, you completely kill it, so instead of 3-4 shot kills, you'll have 4-5 shot kills.
I find the biggest problem with the FAL (with any of the semi-auto weapons, really) is connection. When I can find a lobby where I have a solid connection with little/no lag, the FAL is almost unstoppable. But if I'm running a few tenths of a second behind everyone then I might as well equip a water pistol.
