In versus, where its very important to keep moving, I think the Hunting rifle needs an improvement. Nearly every player picks up the M16 or auto shotgun and leave the HR on the table, I mean its a bit boring how the HR is mostly ignored in versus. I think the reason why the HR is so underused is beacasue of how massively innaccurate it is whilst moving. Therefore with the HR now you would spend longer killing zombies becasue you ahd to stand still to shoot accurately as opposed to the M16 or auto shotgun where you simply run and gun.
I think the HR needs to have its accuracy improved so it doesnt take as long for the crosshair to tighten therefore reducing the time it takes to line up a shot thus making the HR user able to keep up a moving pace in versus. So what do you think about making the HR a better gun for versus?
I see it used fairly often, if you know how to use it and you have a good team supporting you, you can be a lot of help with long off special, common, and the rifle is brutal against the tank. Used more in private games.
Oh man. You don't play with the people I do then. I'm normally the only one with an auto shotty when tier 2 weapons come around. And it's not like they are holding our team back either, they are good with the hunting rifle. I find it fine if you know how to use it.
I use it when im bored or wen i dont wanna be rambo with the m16 and its really good, like said b4 u have to know how to use it or else it is as usless as you say, btw its fun picking off common headshot by headshot XD
I feel that the hunting rifle has its uses. However, I feel that the hunting rifle is far less useful in versus because many of the maps are smaller, the hunting does in fact have an accuracy problem unless you're crouched, and it is kind of hard to shoot the far-off smoker when your teamates don't protect you from the horde around you.
I'm a big fan of the hunting rifle, but I feel that there is nothing the hunting rifle can do that the auto, assault rifle, or even pistols can't do better.
Who cares really? One team with autoshotguns is unstoppable. Alone, it's hard to stop me with an autoshotgun. The hunting rifle is good for the finale though, when climbing up the ladder to the roof with camping special infected ready to ambush, the rifle works wonders getting rid of those boomers.
