Pistol Balancing

9 posts in this topic

Has everyone unlocked/tried all the pistols?

I'm confused as to why DICE would make 2 pistols that essentially worthless because they get literally upgraded versions later (QSZ-92 and M1911). I understand cosmetic preferences but why have weapons that are literally gimped.

not only pistols... all weapon groups have this same problem.

Imo pistols are not a new problem in BF. I hope they do a balance patch on the pistols and a few other guns.

Use the P226. Seriously. The thing wrecks if you have a laser/RDS/Flash hider on it.
- Compact 45 is okay, in game stats read 15 rounds to the mag but it is only 11+1 in the chamber.

I just think that the XP required to unlock all of the pistols is ungodly and ridiculous.

Can anyone tell me how the 12G is? I've been trying really hard to get to it, but I'm not sure if it's even worth it.

It's pretty good. I know it's 3 shots with 1 in the chamber....or maybe 2 with 1, not sure on that. It acts as a the M26MASS, get close and its a one-shot kill.

There are a couple of Pistol only servers up now for exactly that reason. Ive been working on Carbines and there seems to be only 2 or 3 worth while. The ACW-R is better than most of them, the only thing its really lacking by the time you get all the unlocks is stopping power.

Honestly, the Shorty isn't worth it. It gives you points towards shotguns, not pistols, and it only has three shots. Not to mention the relatively slow firing rate, it only shoots about as fast as the REX and .44 do. Speaking of the REX, they need to buff the god damn firing speed on that. It was always intended to be a middle ground between the .44 and the regular pistols, and that's what it bloody well was. Now, we've got some useless janky gun that fires like it's got candyfloss jammed in between the hammer and the firing pin, and sand gumming up the trigger mechanism. Not to mention it takes three bodyshots to kill if they have the Assualt squad perk set.
