Yes you need sf on the fal, but you also need a fg on the scar as the recoil on it is just silly high.


The non-select fire variant is actually better in all ways "if" you can nail the timing and maintain aim. I play without SF now and again. It doesn't happen often but when that all comes together it's quite grand!


I concur. SF is actually more of a crutch on most guns. The only guns I occasionally used SF on is M8A1/Chicom/SIG556.

I've never used the SF on the FAL as I've heard it just makes the guns worse if you can already tap-fire well with the standard-config FAL

It does, having loved the MW2 and BO1 FAL, I unlocked it no doubt.

I did a test, and fired it without SF against a wall at the highest speed I could, and while I know I didn't cap the ROF, the recoil was negligible even when I fired the fastest. Then I put SF and set it FA, it seemed to bounce randomly and didn't really feel accurate.

Yep back to using it w/out SF. I want dat accuracy back. 23% isn't bad I'd say.

OFC my M8A1 has 36%... but much fewer kills :3

The FAL select fire has been nerfed twice now. Right out of the gate it was identical with or without in terms of recoil. After that they added more recoil. And more recently they made it all "bouncy" as you describe. Pretty much sucks now unless you roll semi-auto.

I think it's a good move. The gun it's meant to be locked to semi auto, but if you wish to just hold down the trigger, you'll have to deal with some bouncing.

CoD balance is far for perfect on certain areas *cough* targetfinder *cough*, but that itself is a good idea.
