    First pseudo add-on weapon

    Although it might have been ok for an experiment I think that adding the M8 sight to the SCAR is a lame idea. This kind of reflex sight is already inferior to the Aimpoint/EO. An idea taken from the G36 it's field of view sucks. You will see German Special operation forces mount an EOTech instead. I say drop it from the mod. EC.

    No problem man, and thanks for the explanation. Take it easy, EC.

    Kakanater please understand that my point about realism VS. balance was in response to the idea that a semi-auto sniper rifle would unbalance the game, which I find ridiculous. I've heard your type before about "if you want realism go join the Army". Listen we are here because of these Tom Clancy games that offer a certain level of realistically depicted war-fighting computer GAMING. If we can't talk about the use of technology to further certain aspects of realisim in the V.R world that we play in, then I don't understand why you are here. My main point was about the stupid use of video and a few ideas I had about the weapons..that is all. EC.

    I've got a couple dozen photos of the SCAR in different configurations. I could post a few more if you like or send them your way if you want. Here is another of the Mk.17 (SCAR-H) just for kicks. Notice they are using Tango Down forgrips on these now which I prefer over the one that FN was using at first.

    Awesome work man! Showing GRIN a thing or two about how this game should be! Here is a little inspiration for you modders. SCAR-L with scope and 18 inch barrel + suppressor

    Please read the replies and make an educated "guess". I sure you'll find the answer ... And just for your own information, not all US troops are issued 9mm sidearms. The 1911 .45 caliber pistol is still used by a few Special Operation groups. At this moment the US military is looking for a new sidearm....in .45 caliber.

    NO! This is completely false! I don't care if you are even in the military and your CO told you this, it is a long lasting rumor that is basically an urban myth.

    Actually my friend that is the very same misunderstanding that I was referring too. There are no restrictions on using the .50 on human targets. Think of the M2 machine gun it's a .50... it's main purpose is to kill the enemy, how about the 30 MM chain gun found on the Apache Helicopter? Now that is real firepower used on humans quite frequently these days. How about the 120MM on the M1A1/2 tank lol. My point...there are no restrictions on what sized caliber you can use, there are however restrictions on types of ammo, such as open tipped munitions like hollow points... EC.

    The 1st part would unbalance MP playing. The 2nd... the m82 isn't meant to shoot people but through light armor at very long distances i do believe. (not good for use in a urban environment) It is a common misconception that sniper rifles chambered for the .50 browning machine gun round is only to be used on light armor and equipment. The M99 modeled in GR:AW is also a .50(12mm) caliber sniper rifle , and used on human targets. I can't comment on your statement about game play balance because of semi-auto rifles with scopes on. In my opinion many a war game has been ruined because of this game play balance issue. How about give us a level of realism and let it balance itself because of the very nature of realism. Ec.
  10. First off, this game has a ton of locked potential and it is my hope that it will be unlocked and utilized through both the mod community and from the developers in the form of patches and upgrades. I am currently unable to play multi-player games so what I have to say applies only to SP. As a computer war-gamer I want just that, I want to play war on my computer and in the most realistic and fun way possible with current technology. My main beef is that in the SP game play there is too much fat and not enough meat. When all is said and done gamers don't want to see little video clips of a ###### off general or news clips to get Intel (what a joke!). Who was the smart guy who had the video of the commander (quarterback mission) under attack calling for support? No wonder his team got wasted, he was too busy setting up his webcam then engaging the enemy! My point is, with the time and resources spent on these videos could it have been possible to make a few more maps, or add some more weapons, improved the AI? I like the small details and GRIN did an awesome job on some and failed on others here are a few I want to point out. 1. The Field of view is too narrow on the Aimpoint (SCAR sight). It should be just like the EOTech(CBR) as it is a reflex sight and is used with both eyes open. 3. I want the option of having the EOTech or Aimpoint on all assault rifles 2. CBR? Don't wast your time with BS weapons, give us something believable and real and we will love you. 3. One single shot sniper rifle is not good enough. How about the new KAC SASS (Semi-Auto Sniper System) how about a little SPR MK12 action and of course the M82. Just a few things I wanted to get off my chest, and not a slam on this game at all. Again I really do hope that GRIN and UBI realize that taking a few steps forward while compromising on other aspects of the GR game is not going to do well in this gaming community. EC.
