Help a noob out...

Alright, to all the battlefield vets on here I sincerely apologize. You will probbaly read this and just never hope to see my gamertag on your team in a agme lobby ever..

As the title suggest, I am a battlefield noob. Never owned a bf game till 3 days ago when I decided to buy BF4 and the premium along with it. I absolutely love the game. All the dynamics, strategies, playing styles, everything.. But I suck to say the least.. Average K/D being 15-7 on average in TDM and in Rush its around the same.

My main point of buisness is trying to find the best AR for medium range distances, but can still handle its own in short distances. I play mainly assault, just because when I play with my friends I like being the medic and reviving/ healing everyone. Yes, yes I know, everyone hates the assault players but oh well, thats what I do. I'm not up to par with knowledge in this game at all. I've read some of the other threads and fail to comprehend the apexts involved.

In the simplest terms possible, I need to know what good AR guns/ set ups there are for medium (mainly how I like to fight) to close range (when I revive my mates and am face to face with an enemy) engagements. To any of the BF vets, again, sorry for the headache/ SMH moment. Hopefully you can laugh it off and help me out real quick xD

Pheo

I turn down for no one

Have you tried the Ace 23, M416, or the AK-12 out yet?

Only a level 6, just unlocked the M416, I'll give it a shot. Been using the Scar since I unlocked it, have it with a heavy barrel/ acog/ angled grip. But I will try the others once I get them. Thanks (:

I don't have the game, but to help your general battlefield skill since you just got the game, I would suggest playing the campaign threw. I know, ew not the campaign. It can help you however just learn "the game". Then maybe even go into an empty server with someone else to see what fits you best along with statistics. No matter how good the gun is on paper, that doesn't mean it will fit you.

As for best rifle...what pheo listed.

As you unlock guns try them out on the test range, shoot the barrels not the targets because the barrels have 100+ hp the same as an enemy soldier. That will give you a good idea of how the gun will perform in your hands. The rest pretty much comes with time.

Don't get set in a routine, like Sun Tzu said; be like water. Or a river. Or whatever. Infact go ahead and read the art of war as it will surely g e you some insight into basic strategy.

Occassionally you can actually benefit from learning from your enemies and even other teammates. Take advantage of those opportunities.

Lastly, remember its a game and the point of playing games is to have fun. Too often I find myself cursing DICE and their halfwit programming when I get stuck on broken walls or my tank starts sliding around, or I'll question the enemies sexual preferences when they kill me. I actually get angry, when there's no logical reason to.

Learning requires making mistakes, and getting upset over mistakes isn't going to make you less likely to repeat them.

I also generally play close to mid range, and for me, AEK-971 > all. It absolutely shreds people up close, and the once you learn the recoil, you'll have no problems at medium range either.

Other than that, the L85A2 also looks good. I haven't unlocked it, but seen videos and it seems promising. I'd also mention the SCAR-H, for its high damage,but it fires quite slowly so you have to be really accurate in close-quarters.

You can try the ACE 23 or the M416, but they fire slowler than the L85 (and much slower than the AEK) , and seem slightly better suited to medium+ ranges.

-dot+laser+nothing+ergo works well on many guns and I think you usually unlock them towards the beginning of each gun (except pistols)
-only use irons/reddot/coyote/kobra for sights
-keep using m416 like you are doing
-the next good gun you unlock is the AEK. kobra/coyote+laser+compensator+angled is a popular setup for it.
-the next good gun after that is the ACE23. coyote+laser+nothing+ergo is popular. some people don't like laser, some use muzzle brake and some like angled grip

just use p226 until you unlock 93R. those are the best 2 pistols

edit: the scarh, m16a4 and qbz951 are alright but m416, aek, ace23 are much better
