    Same here. With all the overtime I've been putting in work, BF3 is calling me to blow up some tanks this weekend. I'll have to get on some TS and try out that jihad jeeping you guys have been raving about :laugh:

    I will! I still play CS:S to this day. I enjoy it. I started playing it when I was like 13-14. Its the game that got me into building a computer for the first time.

    Using a Mac for 10+ years prior to building my first PC is what got me to build my own rig. I was a hipster before hipsters existed.

    lol Honestly I didn't even know what a hipster was until Haru explained it to me on TS one night. I said something was "Fresh" and he asked me if I was some kinda hipster because I was using old slang and was trying to bring it back. I informed him no, its not old to me. I FROM that generation. :laugh:

    I saw my first Hipster a month ago in Target. I said hi as they walked past me. They looked at me and my camo boonie like I was garbage. Then 10 minutes later I was standing next to them looking at tablets and I looked at what I assume was her boyfriend and said "You gots real purty hair". The guy got smart and said "You mean purty mouth don't you?!" I replied "What the hell dude this is 2012. Get with it!". They walked off and acted like nothing happen.

    If Haru wouldn't have told me what they were all about I would have just thought she was a shy chick with a gay friend. I had no idea straight men dressed like that in my neck of the woods. Miami sure. Not where I live now.

    Just tried out the M416, have been using the M16A3 just like everyone and their mother, but wanted to see if slightly more vertical recoil and a lot less 1st shot recoil, but 50 rpm less was a good trade off. Here was the results

    [​IMG]
    Looks like I found my new gun. I loved the M416 in BC2. The lower 1st shot recoil makes it much easier to burst fire. I joined late, that guy who got Ace was at like 40 kills and 8000 points when I joined, I was gaining damn fast, I passed him right at the end, then I met a sniper with a shotgun and got owned and he edged me out in the last 30 seconds, I was very sad. But yeah, great gun and I don't think many use it, since so many love the M16.

    Hipster goes back to like the 40s, and you've seen many a hipsters, ever walk past an Apple store? :laugh:

    Didn't you know? Steve Jobs turned PC's into Mac's, and he was a martyr for his cause... does anyone see a similarity here?

    Oh yeah I discovered the M416 awhile ago (somehow...don't play a lot of assault relatively) and proceeded to mow fuckers down right away especially in the corridors of Metro and Bazaar.

    A "sniper with a shotgun" at the end...man ain't that a bitch! :ohwell:

    Heh I used only a Mac too to begin with but it was mainly gaming that lead me to building my own PCs.

    Yeah the M416 seems nice. The M16A3 is an amazing gun, I would almost say too good. But sometimes I find targets escaping me at long distances since the 2.5 1st shot recoil it's not the best to burst fire with. 2.0 on the M416, I found it extremely easy to burst fire with, killing targets at 150m wasn't hard at all. And I don't mind only giving up 50 rpm and barely any vertical recoil to get a better rounded weapon.

    "2.5" refers to distance? And doesn't that M16 have the 2 round burst per shot? Or is that the A4? Such sounded cool but I found I couldn't really get accustomed to it in practice.

    That was my goto gun in BC2 as well. I use it exclusively on assault BF3, but nowhere to the skill level you're at :respect:

    Killer round.

    The M16A3 is Semi or Auto. M16A4 is Semi, 3 round burst, and Auto. In real life the M16A3 and M16A4 have the same shooting modes, just the A4 has improved internals and more gadget mounting options.

    2.5 refer to the amount of recoil on the 1st shot. 2.0 would be 200% recoil of the shots beyond that. So 2.5 is 250%. So the M416 has less kick on the first shot that the M16A3.

    Yeah I loved it in BC2, it and the XM8 had great Iron Sights, so I always used them.

    You got me, with all of my Recon points and Metro playtime.

    Ah yes 3-round. At any rate, couldn't get used to it.

    The M416 is full auto, it's just like the M16A3, just with 50 less RPM, less 1st shot recoil, and a negligible amount of vertical recoil more.
