SCAR-H: I'm torn between the Heavy Barrel and Muzzle Brake

I've been mucking around with the SCAR for a fair bit of time (1300 kills, which is currently double my next most-used weapon), and I've been alternating between the Brake and the Heavy barrel just about every hundred kills, and I simply cannot make up my mind. The Brake has always made killing headglitchers easy, but the Heavy barrel enables me to put longer bursts down, and while I'm fairly used to the recoil, I still feel like 2-round bursts against headglitchers is more
productive than Heavy Barrel shooting.

So since I can't decide, I'll have you guys decide for me. What should I use? Brake or Barrel? Should I try to master the recoil, or should I just use the muzzle brake?

You think you can act all big and powerful just because you sit on a computer at least 6 hours a day like the probably nerdy unwanted retard you are with 4.3k subs? You think 4.3k subs is a lot? LOL you need medicine man. I don't want any subs as i just have a google account for other media and writing comments. Think twice before you act. You even said in your video you aren't that great of a player, and the comments agree you aren't. Maybe you should once again think twice before you act, stop being such an annoying, ignorant bastard that everyone wants to shut up, and god, literally, just shut up.

Angled and Heavy is fairly easy to control.
If you use the HBar you will get used to the recoil in some time.
But if you use the MB, you will not get better at controling recoil.
Then Hbar is surely more usefull, just play sometime with it, get used with it and then you will see how far more usefull the Hbar is and how good it will perform.

Dis. Most people on here will tell you to use the H-Bar. Just use what you feel comfortable with.

Fuck that shit! HBar on the SCAR-H is bananas. DAT recoil. Then, you get suppressed, and it's even worse.

The muzzle break makes it easy mode. Why make your life harder with the heavy barrel? The muzzle velocity on the SCAR-H makes it less viable for 'longer' ranges anyway and your not shooting sustained automatic fire. The heavy barrel IMO, is not nearly as much of a staple item in BF4 in comparison to BF3.

I concur with dis^ it's what I've swapped to lately it's too easy to dome people head glitching like you said. Plus there is the ACE-52 CQB which if you use AFG and MB combo is a really good carbine as well if your a fan of what the SCAR-H stand for.

No love for the Suppressor?

I haven't used the SCAR as much as most people, but I've found the HBar to be too much. Saying that, I've never felt the Brake to be neccesary, either. The suppressor seems to make sense, to me. It's not like you're losing any significant velocity and it at least helps to get reloads off as you're not on the minimap if you duck behind cover.

I've honestly never found it to be too much recoil. That said, it's one of the few weapons I actually feel the recoil on; with weapons like the HBar'd M416 I compensate without noticing that I'm doing it.

I think we are in the loosing minority here Nick. I also like the HB in SCAR-H. I've played with both and found the accuracy with MB, eh, lacking. Maybe gotta give it a whirl tonight.

Ofc, I can't single shoot the SCAR at 10 Hz like some else can ;), which is my personal disadvantage and after laying down the AN-94, my LMB finger has slowed down even more. ;_;

HB is fantastic on the Scar up until the point you get suppressed then GL compensating for a completely different recoil amount from the norm.

Go to youtube > type "giant scar" > you'll see the ultimate Scar set up..."fuckin casul" :D
