I've made a good living using the SKS. It's my top weapon. One annoying thing - With the SKS you have to press the trigger so ... damn ... much. For that reason it feels refreshing to shoot an automatic weapon after using the SKS as opposed to other semi-auto rifles.


I love the versatility and I love sneaking in those long range kills.

HOLO, HBar, bipod is my default setup (like most probably).


Interestingly enough, I win more face to face battles with the 417 because I tend to pull off that lucky headshot from the hip.

The m417 has more damage but u Must
Shoot slower because of the recoil.
With the sks u just have to Spot and spam
Thats easy imo. And u r accurate on the move too

The SKS is like a poor man's AN-94 that comes with solid Recon equipment. Definitely a good weapon. Low skill floor (spam is the answer) but compared to weapons like the M16, a relatively high skill ceiling. Definitely my Recon weapon of choice.

I've said this before. In comparison to the AN-94:
AN-94:
Higher damage per "bullet"
+267 rpm
More accurate when spammed
SKS:
+5 rounds
Slightly better spread (irrelevant at most ranges)
Lower vertical recoil

The SKS is a good bit easier to use, but it's still nowhere as idiot proof as "lol-hold-trigger-death-laser" M16A3 which is largely popular BECAUSE it's easy to use. Seriously, if the pros want "the best" weapon, the A4 is strictly better.

SKS is the only recon weapon worth using for me. Not as good as AN-94, but acceptable. Also good fun to get M16 and AEK sprayers rage at your noob 333 rpm semi auto sniper.

Teamwork is where players function by themselves, but their effectiveness is multiplied when they work together. Not a checklist of "did we bring a healer so we can start playing?"

If you're defending Metro's stairs and clustered areas, aways behind cover and very up-close, the extra damage and lightning-bolt reload of the M417 will serve you pretty well but overall the H-BAR on the SKS give it too much pros to be ignored, just like the M16 platform it isn't a master at anything but still perform 8-out-of-10 at everything

Foregripping it to get a better recoil or no under-barrel if you intend to fire while moving

Thanks for the post, but I don't believe this has enough substance to be considered a thread. Ask your question in quick questions.
