Kitswitched an enemy to revive a friend. Enemy had auto 8 factory. Friend had ammo. Killed 3 planes.
That's something else it's good for. Even if you don't kill planes, the very high burst damage means you'll do very good damage, relative to other SLRs.
At what, 3 damage per hit? So 15 damage per mag? That doesn't seem so good... I can't see anyway you killed 3 planes that weren't already heavily damaged.

You should shoot at planes any chance you get, every bit of damage and annoyance helps.

Just wondering, when using the 8 what's your most common situation when you die?

for the same reason i use the bayonet on the marksan variant: my aim sucks balls.

i am pretty good at choosing the right reload(except when i have 2 rounds left) the problem i have is that i have a hard time successfully keeping up the 60% accuracy requirement which is why i someitmes find myself running around just with the auto revolver without reloading the model 8 for minutes.

Just a friendly tip. If your aim is not adequate to use the 5 round SLRs effectively then it is probably best to:

a.) cease all usage entirely
b.) work on improving your aim to take advantage of their potential

It is the equivalent of trying to learn Physics before a basic understanding of Algebra; you need one to enable success with the other, in this case Algebra before Physics.

b is exactly why i'm trying to use it, i'm forcing an aapproach of "make your aim better or just straight up die", heck, now that i think about it, i might as well play with ONLY the model 8, no sidearms bayonet or melee, and try to deal with that, play like 5 hours a day with it until my aim gets better.

Fair enough. I'm using a similar strategy, so I can identify with that mindset. I translated, "my aim sucks balls" to, "I can rarely get hits with this gun" which is what elicited my response. I should have figured a bit of exaggeration was present in retrospect. Good fortune to you, fellow Model 8 user.

Well you could train your aim with the Mondragon Storm.

I'm not sure this is the right mindset to improve your aim. You can improve your aim with any gun. And you will probably have more fun while improving with thone other guns as well. Positive reinforcement is a good way to learn. I'd say that if you're having trouble using the Model 8, practice with the cei rigotti factory or trench to get better with irons and prep yourself for model 8 factory use. Practice with the mondragon sniper at 2.5x to prep for model 8 marksman use.

That said, using only the Model 8 only will make you better at one particular thing: using the Model 8. Which may be what you want.
