Forgive me I'm only average and the character is new so it does not have any bells and whistles yet. I don't see too many semi-auto vids, I think because people just prefer the BAs or the SMGs these says. 1) I only know about the Vanu variations so I will comment on those. 2) There is nothing below that seasoned players won't know so feel free to just skip it i guess. I think the most common misconception is that the Specter and the Phantom are the same weapon, they just have different scopes. This is completely inaccurate. (IMO) the Specter is 100% a long range weapon, the Phantom is 100% a medium range weapon. The Specter has a much more massive recoil than the Phantom. The Specter IMO is designed to get two head shots and move on at max-medium to long range. Pulse firing the Specter even when you have good mouse control is still an uncontrollable mess compared to the Phantom at anything less than maximum range. A simple Virtual Training Center session will show you what I mean when shooting a wall with both weapons. The Specter also has more bullet velocity which gives it the longer range leading ability over the Phantom (which at really long ranges you have to lead by 2-3 inches sometimes). The forward grip does make a huge difference for these weapons. Unlike the Bolt Actions these 2 are pulse fire weapons (I mean you pulse the mouse to get an even stream of accurate shots) and the forward grip does lessen the kick back, and makes the gun coil go straight upwards instead of random. I think the main thing that throws newer players off of the Specter and the Phantom is the breath and scope sway. This is only overcome with practice. As I said above the Phantom does suffer less from kick back so at closer ranges you can pulse fire it even when your breath is on cool down and maintain a decent spray pattern with mouse control, it is much harder to do this with the Specter (as I said before the Specter is designed for a 2 head shot then moving and looking for a new target, not medium range combat). You cannot pulse fire the Phantom as fast as you can, the bullets will fly all over the place when your breath is down, but if you maintain a steady half second pulse on the mouse you can maintain decent accuracy with no breath. What I do like about the Phantom (the gun in the video) is that it still fires shots that do 25-33% of a persons life total, often times nobody can react to that at all AND often times you will get a person in the leg as they are running around a corner much more easily than with a carbine as the shot does a huge amount. I also like the Phantom/Specter because the shots do sound like sniper rounds and it causes a lot of panic when you just rain on a squad of enemies. Summation: Specter is for long range (1) high zoom optics (2) higher bullet velocity for leading at long range (3) worse at pulse firing for medium range. Phantom is for medium range (1) medium zoom optics (2) better mouse control for pulse firing than the Specter (3) slower bullets make leading harsh at longer ranges. _______________________________________________________________________ Here is the video. It's not meant to really show off much skill (as I said I'm not that great and there is a massive luck factor in the vid), but it does show what you can do undetected at medium range without the aid of an SMG or a bolt action. (Phantom with forward grip and 4x OG scope). I hope it might get some more people back to using these good weapons (granted you have to buy the Phantom, but it's really good, I assure you). Thanks.
