ARs have way more advantages than just ROF. Probably the biggest is TTK

Correct me if I am wrong but I imagine that the time to kill (TTK) is calculated by the rate of fire and the damage at various ranges. Pointing out that RATE OF FIRE is especially important in this regard. When you mentioned that TTK is the biggest advantage, I think this point is very much echoed in my original post in pointing out ARs' advantage over the SKS is based on rate of fire. Additionally, SKS (2.20 s) only reloads slower than M16A3 (1.80), M416 (1.75), AK-74 (2.10) G3A3 (2.15). So, it's slower reload speed is not universally applicable in reference to all ARs. To my eyes, it only has significant slower reload speed compared the M16/M416 duo. Smaller magazine, yes, but it does more damage per shot--so that advantage is negated.

Either way, SKS as recon weapon can be used in conjunction with the TUGS, because I can anticipate enemy movement, I can react proactively and prefire any enemies. No superior rate of fire is going to negate a better reaction time/positioning because of superior situational awareness as a result of the TUGS. Also, dead enemies can't spot.

AND the SKS+HBAR has the best ADS accuracy when strafing in the game; not just of the semi-autos, but of all guns in the game. '

Real' ADS strafe spread values.

The conclusion is that no gun ever actually reaches the minimum ADS moving spread while strafing. A weapon's spread is determined by a point on a linear graph that adjusts based on the percentage of normal walking speed that you are moving at while strafing. Most guns move at a maximum 50% of normal walking speed while ADS, but bullpups, PDWs (excluding AS VAL), and pistols move at maximum of 75%. Moving at 50% means your spread will be at 50% of the distance between stationary spread and moving spread.

which means you take the values symthic has for ADS stationary and moving and divide by 2 to find the 'real' values. As a comparison; The M16A3 + HBAR has a stationary min ADS spread of 0.05 and a min ADS moving spread of .250 (for maximum speed, which is normal walking speed). However, since you cannot move any faster than 50% of normal walking speed while ADS, your spread is at the 50% point between 0.05 and .250, which is 0.15. The SKS + HBAR has a stationary min ADS spread of 0.025 and a min ADS moving spread of .250, so your spread is at the 50% point between 0.025 and .250, which is 0.1375. More accurate than the M16 whilst ADS strafing.
