### DISCLAIMER ### I was talking weapons of choice with olde and ken yesterday on the server. I proposed to do a tier list. I know I do decent on your server and with a playstyle that shouldn't work a lot. I like to go in depth with some reasoning about some games. The idea of tier lists came to me with league of legends. Understand that by no mean it is the ultimate way to play, this is my way with my reasoning. It works for me and might not for everyone else. If you like yours, stick with it I just want to share some infos about one way to play on your server. We have to take into account that your server doesn't have killstreaks(thx god ), half health and tanks only maps. The bunny hopping part is very hard too because it is now very core to all others cod. That's why the rule #9 is the one that people get warning the most with. My playstyle is very rushy. And hard to do in this server since you can get os by too many hidden people. You have to use your brain a little more which I love. My go-to playstyle revolves around a weapon with a silencer and the perk deadly silence. I also like to memorize all your camp patterns individually. I know most of the hideouts now. The habits of Fafnir, victorRosta or wally for example. Specially the campers because I like to put them down. I could talk also about spawn patterns because some of you didn't believe me when I said that I noticed some tendency but won't be the main subject here. (It kinda makes me angry when spawns are all over the place but w/e) I do decent with all those infos and my gameplay and I don't want to brag about it. If you have some different opinions or info I'll be glad to read them. I play this game since the release, with some breaks and still enjoy it. Finding something new always bring me joy. This is just my experience on your server and that's all. Take nothing I say as granted, maybe you all know this and I just say some obvious stuff but that's all. I would like to upload some gameplay on youtube or something but can't really since I play on a potato computer. I am french so sorry for my english. I'll talk about weapons and perks and why I put them in a tier list. By tier list I mean effectiveness. If a weapon is easy to use, some caracteristics, the recoil for example or the success I have with it. ### WEAPONS ###bolt action rifles : the thing is with the half health it kinda ruin the bolts. They are outclassed by the rifles. they are good for maybe sniping but even the garand with scope is better. I prefer the mosin/kark/spring and doesnt like the arisaka. the ptrs is very fun but that's all. Don't use stopping power with them they already os anything. Sometimes not a juggernaut but they'll do the work normally. If I want to play a little challengy, I take a bolt(without the scope) and double tap. Helps when u are vs automatic weapons. Bayonneta is nice. The grenade launcher can be used but you won't last long on the server . Scope is the hardest level on those when you rush. Quickscoping is way easier with the ptrs and not in this cod. Rifles : maybe the most versatile weapons for this server. SVT-40/Gewher are nice. Quite decent long range too, and very stable. Silencer very good on them but you will need more shots sometimes. a little outclassed by the m1a1 STG 44 is very good with a silencer. I find it lacking some firerate so double tap as a perk is nice. recoil nice. m1 garand...OP as f***. With a scope it outclassed all the bolt in sniping terms. More ammo, more fire rate, and dont need to change the bullet like the bolt(except the ptrs). It os people with a scope even without stopping power... The silencer is very very good on it. VictorRosta is one of the best at it with the silencer. m1a1 carbine. It is nice, better than the svt or gewher but its iron sights is hard for me sometimes. It does the work but dont play it that much. submachine guns: type100: the least best and it is weird for me because in a normal server like the PDE one. the best class to carry is type 100 stopping power steady aim but in this server not really. The type 100 is my least favorite on this server. Probably because sometimes you need to take a shot very far away and the recoil and precision on this are not the best. thompson, is very nice, with silencer too. For some reason I have this feeling that equiped with the drum it is less precise. a very personal feeling and really weird. ppsh most precise submachine. Shame that no silencer on this weapon. does the work maybe the most popular on this server mp40. maybe the most versatile and broken. Can most of the times OS with stopping power and silencer equiped. Less precise than thompson or ppsh and the recoil is harder but when mastered it is very nice. My go to weapon when I need to tryhard or kick some campers asses. Shotguns: hmm very hard to use on your server since a lot of people camp and the problem is the range... you have to sneak on people with this. the m1897 can be fun and stylish but that's all. double barreled can have some nice range with a equipement but you take the place for perk 1 so it is not that good. Only dizzy sometimes uses the m1897 but a submachine gun does way more work than this. Can be a fun challenge to play it though machine guns : Some are quite good on this server and others not that much. Some machine guns are so "heavy" that they don't work with my moving playstyle and they are too long to aim with. reload time too requires the double tap perk. type 99 is nice but OMG the clip just take all ur right fov. Nice dmg and recoil but the fov is so important bar is very good. decent dmg always os mostly. recoil a little rough dp-28 very popular among the server and very good. the reload time is a bit long but ok. mg42 can be precise but the others are better fg42, you burn so quick the ammo on this. 1 clip for 1 guy so it is not very effective browning is the same as mg42. too heavy lot of bullets but not precise pistols : the magnum is interesting to OS people. oldandcrappy likes to use it a lot. the others feel the same to me except the japanese one with a weird reload animation. so in term of tier list maybe something like this ? S(best) : mp40, m1 garand, ppsh A : m1a1, stg, thompson, dp-28, bar, magnum? B : type 100, svt, gewher, fg42, type99 C : mg42, browning D(worst) : bolt rifles and ptrs, shotguns A guy who knows how to handle bolt rifles will cause a lot of dmg to the enemy team but it requires some skills.
