My credibility: My ingame name is Azloki. I have played PS1, PS1 Beta, PS2 and PS2 Beta. Current nation: TR I have tested all Medic playable guns and here is my suggestion: I would highly recommend everyone go use the NS-11A because of its high accuracy, low re-coil and about the same damage output/clip as other cyclers. Give it a 2X scope, laser sight and velocity, you will rule in CQC and middle range. I assume you all know and have read another article about TR has the best default AR for medic. Explanation: NS-11A: 5 point dmg * 6 point ROF * 7 point RS * 9 point ACC is about the perfect combination although I would prefer something with higher dmg but lower RS. 35 magazine is OK but 40 is better. Keep in mind that the dmg & ROF are correlated with re-coil. It means lower dmg or ROF will result in a relatively lower re-coil. High dmg but low ROF is bad (NC ARs). Low dmg but high ROF is bad (pistols). High dmg and high ROF is also bad (if you use auto & high re-coil). Low dmg and low ROF is the worst. The downside of cycler series are the high re-coil & bigger "aim". It limits your ability to kill someone in mid-long range. You may give use scope but the high recoil still limits its ability if you auto it. It is not worth changing it to single because of its low dmg. NS-11A has the same dmg as other cyclers but one point lower ROF than T1. However, it has a smaller "aim" and since a lower ROF, you will actually hit more than any cycler in CQC and mid range (assuming you both are moving). Forget about the dmg/clip, it is unrelated and if you always need to use a whole clip to kill someone, you better go practice more. T1S is OK in terms of its second utility but most of the time you kill people with you bullets and so you really dont need the second utility at a cost of the laser sight. Laser sight is pretty much a must have add-on. The difference is significant but you can only feel it when you fight a lot with it. Overall: NS-11A is available to all 3 nations and so it is a fair game.
