New Update: What guns are good now?

Post by Asrielite » 11 months ago

Hello all, following the recent GC update I would like to share my opinion on what guns are now viable and try to explain each gun in detail.

Buffed: General increase in effectiveness
Beefed: Large increase in effectiveness
n/a: Not available/I don't use this gun enough to give info

Take note: I didn't do any math to calculate the actual damage of each weapon, just guessing approximately where the range is.

Lets start by assessing the headshot multipliers:

AR/SMGs: Burst or Semi-auto headshots received a 1.7% multiplier instead of 1.5%(6-7 hearts) [Buffed]
Recommended guns: G11, M16a2, Famas, M1 Garand, Svt-40, Ak-103

Auto Shotguns/Snipers: Directly buffed headshot multiplier from 1.5% - 1.7% (Usually Insta kill or 7-8 hp)[Buffed]
Recommended guns: Any

Pump Shotguns: Stayed the same [N/A]

Bolt Snipers: Buff insignificant, still gonna 1 tap [N/A]

Drum/mag-fed LMGs: Semi and Burst buffed to 1.6433%. (5-6 hearts) [Buffed]
Recommended guns: Ultimax, QBB-95

Belt fed MGs: Semi/Burst buffed 1.5867% (4-5 hearts)[Buffed]
Recommended guns: Negev

Handguns: Directly buffed to 1.7% (CZ75-auto does not apply) (6-Insta depends on what handgun)[Buffed]
Recommended guns: M9a1, Usps, 5-7, Tec-9

Beefed Rifles include:
M1 Garand
M14 Ebr
All Legendary Rifles

Beefed Smgs include:
All Leggy Smgs

No Beefed Shotguns

Beefed MGs include:
M1919A4 (Huge buff, Decreased fire+94 Armor penetration = Longer& more dangerous suppressive fire)

Beefed Snipers include:
AWM: More effective against armor while retaining 1 shot capability
M24: Less of +19xp
M40A1: Less of +19xp
Cheytach: Is better than AWM in terms of damage
Scar-20: Higher rof+Headshot buff+No change in recoil

Beefed Pistols Include:
M9a1: Untested: 1 tap headshots?
5-7: Already headshot machine + headshot multiplier
CZ75: HS damage nerfed but compensated with higher base damage

Flamer: Is somehow made more effective (Decreased rof and damage wont help with the hitstun of fire and obstruction of vision)

Overall, I think pistols, auto snipers, and ARs benefited the most from this update, as well as the flamer. I am interested on how the meta weapons will change in congruence to this update.

The increased headshot multipliers are Mob Arena only.
For PVP, full auto now has less multiplier than before (for head & chest), while burst/semi stays the same.
