Hey guys, long time lurker, first time poster.

All this Model 8 .35 love inspired me to finally create an account and post something. The more I use this gun the more I love it. Unfortunately, it makes other medic rifles hard to go back to. The 300 rpm guns feel okay, but anything slower than that just feels unusable.

I made a highlight video from a few of my matches using the Model 8, I would love for you guys to check it out. I only very very recently started recording gameplay, so it is pretty rough around the edges in some ways. Thanks!

You know, I don't usually bother with gameplay videos and the like, but damn. That's fantastic. This right here is how you use the Rem 8 and why it's so good, especially showcasing how fluid and unpredictable your movement needs to be, with smart use of your sidearm and grenades.

While you do have to have at least good aim to use the gun effectively, it's nothing nearly so unforgiving as slow pump shotguns (including Slug) an aggressive bolt action, or even a slow firing automatic or SLR. You can miss with the Rem 8. You can miss your first shot and still come out on top because of just how fast it kills. It's oddly comparable to the Automatico like that, in that all your efforts aren't riding on a single shot. On the flip side, miss with the M1916, which already kills very slowly, and you're screwed against any half-competent player.

It's not players with poor gunplay (aim, recoil, etc) skills that can't use the Rem 8, it's players that don't know how to use tactics and such. No, you shouldn't peek back out of cover the same place you just entered it. It's predictable players that can't use the gun.

Awesome! I'm looking forward to it. I'm super torn between the marksman and factory right now, and welcome any and all feedback that goes towards picking one as a primary weapon.

Yeah, now that you mention it, that is kind of true. I often feel that the "60%" accuracy barrier is actually too easy maybe. It allows me to essentially mag-dump towards someone's hitbox and get a near guaranteed kill, even if my accuracy is a little subpar. You can see me doing that quite often in my linked video.

I don't think it's too easy, because I don't think the best guns should be those that are defined by being gunplay/technically demanding. The Rem 8 requires the user to be tactically intelligent, and that's the kind of player we want to encourage and reward, not who can aimbot the best.

The fact that the "what-are-positioning-and-tactics?" guns like the Hellriegel, M1916, and M1907 Sweeper are lauded by the community as being the "best" shows that BF1 nailed its focus on what makes a good player: More smarts, less muscle memory.

Hmm. I see what you mean, but as someone who has played competitive fighting games for years, I think muscle memory has it's place too. Watching someone perform feats of incredulity due to their amazing muscle memory is one of the best ways to get hyped!

I say Marksman. It fires two consecutive shots just slightly less accurate than the Factory firing one (0.265 vs. 0.21). Plus with a very minimal Spread Increase per Shot of 0.125...Fo-get about it!
To Aim Assist or not to Aim Assist, that is the question.

I'm not saying it's irrelevant or shouldn't be valued at all, that would be silly; I'm just saying I feel the current skill palette needed to use a gun like the Rem 8 is exactly what it should be.

I used to obsess over my acc. Stats for the HK416 and AEK. Now it's the model 8.
It's terrible, with every clip I'm calling it it in my head, 80%, 40%, shit..20%.

I also resist the urge to shoot at horses jus to boost match acc.
