Best Barrel For Semi-Auto Snipers?

In the multi-comparison, I'm trying to decide if the heavy barrel or muzzle brake is better. Maybe even compensator. Can I have a number junkie help me?

Just ask yourself at what ranges you'll be engaging.
If you want to go "hardmode" and keep the rifle out at all times as opposed to switching to your secondary when moving around I'd say the heavy barrel is not too good an idea as you will get into engagements where strafing is important. Simple as that.

If you want to use it as a sniper rifle for long range exclusively from a secure location and switch to your secondary when moving about the map then the heavy barrel it is. The heavy barrel will generally only help you outside of 100 to 150m.

Correction: I had the stats in my head the wrong way: The heavy barrel does you no good for bodyshots inside 300m with the Saiga, SR25 and SOCOM16. At 400m without heavy barrel you'll still land 92% of your bodyshots if your aim is true.

For headshots you'll already feel the heavy barrel's effect at 100m. With the accurate rifles and the heavy barrel you'll have a 93% hitchance on a headshots at 200m.

Of course, this ignores the non-constant cross-sectional first moment of area across the chest as well as non-constant material properties of the boob; it would be difficult to perform a more detailed analysis (as in, I'd have to have a shape function AND I'd need to derive a function for elastic modulus as a function of lateral breast coordinate) but whatever. It's 2am and I'm lazy.


I always believed science should be very hands on experience.

You should also answer this question I had posed in that thread: Would you be willing to pay your surgeon more if he was going to use a chainsaw for the opening incision of surgery? Clearly using a chainsaw isn't truly suited for surgery but that doesn't really matter. If he's "skilled" enough to be able to use the wrong tools of the trade, he should be rewarded for that skill right?

I am certainly not planning on using them that far away. I'd like the best for a spammy, aggressive play style nothing 100-150 meter max.

Another possible combo: stubby compensator?

Since you'll be dancing at that range I'd use the vertical grip personally, you might also need its hipfire bonus up close. Stubby is definitely good for spammy due to the guns' high SIPS. Forget about the SOCOM16, though, that's got the insane 0.6 SIPS compared to the others' 0.3. Comp or MB is a difficult question for semi auto guns IMO as they suffer heavily from visual recoil. Try and find what suits you best? Statistically the MB is superior to the comp, but for the individual the comp might yield the better results anyway.

Why not a suppressor? You don't show up in their minimap, so you can fire more.

It incinerates the muzzle velocity, and the other barrels seem far too useful

The World Champion wrote some such a bit back on why you should run muzzle brake + Stubby. so do that unless you want to be wrong.

speaking of being wrong.

Forget about the SOCOM16

You and I actually agree for once. Soc. 16 is the first gun I got silver for.

If you don't mind the recoil (what recoil?) I'd say flash hider. Otherwise muzzle.

It's funny how you put a stubby on a gun with twice the SIPS as its classmates instead of either just using one of those with the added benefit of any grip or (again) halving your SIPS by using one of them with stubby.
