I have had plenty of assault rifles and don’t care for them that much, honestly. Not enough damage per shot and too small clips. The marksman rifle I picked up tonight, on the other hand, is beautiful. Most enemies die in one-to-two headshots or 2-4 body shots. I can probably drop 3 people in a clip, more if I’m really picking my shots. With the M4 I was lucky if I got one.
And I’m on PC. If I had to play this with a gamepad…well, I just wouldn’t. But with mouse and keyboard, connecting with and killing the enemies hasn’t been too big a problem. The problem’s been keeping them from hitting me.
