    Why would you want a goldencamo? You would be killed everytime you spawned cause your gun would be so shinny.

    Is it so damn hard to make guns have the fire modes they’re actually meant to have?

    G36 doesn’t have a 2 shot burst but does in this game, MP5 does have 3 shot but it doesn’t in this game, L85 doesn’t have burst but does in this game, FAMAS doesn’t have a burst mode but does in this game and I’m pretty sure the AN-94 has a semi fire mode IRL =/ not to mention the double shot mode has a ROF of 1800 RPM IRL, whereas on this it’s slower than double tapping on semi would be.

    FA MAS has both a burst mode and full auto mode, but its selected at the rear burst selector switch, where as the front firing select at the trigger is for safetey/single/burst. Whether you want full auto burst, or limited burst, is chosen from the rear burst selector. So you’re either using single/auto or single/burst, You cant switch from single to burst to auto, doesnt work like that.

    I and a lot of others want the Swedish ak5c as an assault class weapon, a suggestion would be to release a future weapon pack that includes a couple of countries main weapons as you’ve begun to do with the famas.
    This would strengthen the national feeling towards the game as well as attracting those of you guys out there who fancy modern arms!

    This is a humble suggestion and kneeling request

    Proven skill

      Not true, the FAMAS definitely wasn’t the best gun on Black Ops, the M60 or AUG were on that game. Got many a kill on those people who had the FAMAS. The FAMAS is best served on this game, where it gets the well earned recognition it deserves. So far my best guns are the M1014 on Metro, the FAMAS if I’m Assault (haven’t earned anything else yet), and the SCAR-H if I’m engineer. Currently trying out the F2000, which is great but haven’t gotten me many kills because it’s pretty hard going back to ironsights. All of the weapons on this game are pretty awesome, you just have to know how to use them. Currently I’ve gotten killed by more people using the USAS-12 than anything else.

      A. Just because a gun is in COD doesn’t mean any other game that has it is copying.

      B.You went on a Bf3 forum with a name like “I luv cod”? Not very smart bro.

      C. No matter what you say, Bf3 will always be better.

    Anybody that is decent at BF3 would murder any COD player. It takes much more skill that to run in gun like you do on COD. As far as the FAMAS I just unlocked it two days ago and have 3 service stars so far. The gun is sick. Before that I was using the G3A3 which may still be my favorite gun. Have not decided yet.
