M320 accuracy

Is there any effective way to accurately use the ladder sight on the M320? I was thinking, maybe (PS3/Xbox users) you could use the directional pad buttons to change the alignment of the sights, and make the distance markers more visible in the next update?

I aim it from the hip and quickly ADS before firing. It's nigh impossible to aim with those crappy sights.

I'd like being able to properly use the sights, I find myself running engineer on Rush, where I mostly use assault because I can destroy cover from far away without missisng, while I would probably waste a lot of ammo with the M320 trying to hit at ranges.

Plus I think it's speed should be buffed up a bit, I doubt that the 40mm projectile is THAT slow IRL.

I actually think the M320 is quite easy to aim, but I do use it a fair amount (noob alert!). Placing an explosion on a moving mid range target is do-able, and even long range with a couple of L85 shots to finish them off.

It's just practice. It's exactly the same principle with landing tank shells on distant targets. Just trial and error.

However I may well be biased. I'm a big fan of the M320, and once you move away from the 'nade spam of Metro you really start to see the uses. Open maps with a fair amount of walls are your friend (Oman in particular I find). Also the ability to take out jeeps in rather nifty.

Im with ya buddy, I love bieng able to take out jeeps and humvees as assault. I run M320 on maps like Seine,Bazaar,Tehran. Where theres a lot of buildings, you can shoot the side of the building and watch the rubble come down on poor unsuspecting enemies.

Exactly. Its the only think assault can carry to hurt vehicles. Ok they hardly dint the heavily armed stuff, and you're best off just staying out of harms way and reviving your engi teammates, but they are a great way of picking off whoever has just jumped out the tank to repair :)

It's also rather good at suppression. Assault guys don't really have much to make enemies keeps their heads down and panic unlike the other classes (belt fed LMG's, RPG's, and high mag scoped bolt action rifles). True, suppression isn't the role of assault, but keeping peoples heads down while others run in with the AEK's works really well.

Also, I'm not a fan of speeding them up. a) The drop would begin to move into RPG territory, and I like the distinction. b) You couldn't lob them over cover, so no winkling out the scared, and c) The ability to launch a grenade, change to your AR and start firing at the target before the grenade hits works amazingly well. I wouldn't want to loose this.

I am pretty sure I looked in the explosives data thread before and didn't see:
M320 spread, and maybe it was muzzle velocity or gravity for either the M320 or RPG.

It is nice to use your gunsights when it's attached UB

Anyone remember the RPG sights in Bad Company 2? Did anyone know those sights accurately depicted sizes and distances needed to accurately lead and hit enemy tanks from far off?
I miss that level of precision in a Battlefield game :(

*Sigh*
Regardless. Am I the only one that sometimes doesn't have the ladder sights? About 7/10 times when I ADS with a free-standing M320 the ladders just disappear.

As for accurately using the sights, I can't. However I have a compromise: Since the March patch I've stopped using Foregrips on pretty much every single AR and still don't see the need to use the Bipod since I'm pretty good at tap-firing so I often run the Underbarrel Rail....Perfect for the M320 or MASS. If you ADS with the M320 under the gun then you don't get any awful ladder sights, just that nice little range-finding crosshair you have normally along with the usual ADS accuracy.

Personally, I don't have a problem with it as is other than the fact that it has to compete with the Medkit. Only change I'd make is increased accuracy or extra grenades when mounted underneath an Assault Rifle or something to help promote use of the Underslung Rail.

Now the M320 Buck? Jesus Christ. Not only is there a delay between it registering a kill, but it's just completely worthless when you have the choice of just using the MASS or even SMOKE instead. What the hell was DICE thinking?
