[QUOTE=D3vils Buddy;35701072]I liked being the unofficial marksman. Every event we've played I've used an M110 or the FN SCAR w/surpresor[/QUOTE] too many marksmen. You, Kyle, Duel, and apparently partyhats. There should be a maximum of 1 for the whole side. Each fireteam doesn't need a marksman, it just turns into them killing most of the infantry and leaving nothing to the riflemen. There should be mostly riflemen. ShackTac fireteams go like this for the most part: [B]FTL[/B] ( FireTeam Leader [B]AR[/B] ( Automatic Rifleman ) [B]AAR[/B] ( Assistant Automatic Rifleman ) [B]Rifleman (AT)[/B] ( SMAW/AT4/M72/CarlGustav ) [B]Rifleman (AT)[/B] ( SMAW/AT4/M72/CarlGustav ) [B]Rifleman[/B] They almost never have infantry with zooming optics. We could simplify Shacktacs squad system like so.

I've never seen Kyle or duel go marksman when I've played. Notrabies and I did pretty well as sniper/spotter during one mission and when we played this weekend niko and I were marksmen and we didn't do as well as the fireteam.
i go marksmen whenever i can, but devils you havent played in a while, and duel just goes marksmen then is like does anyone have a rangefinder. [editline]24th April 2012[/editline] I like how we are talking about loadouts when it doesnt even really matter, half the time we have what we need, AT, machine gunners we are set most of the time. [editline]24th April 2012[/editline] like there are other things we need to worry about
Its be nice though if we could just do what stewe said. Dedicated roles are pretty important though, keeps everything more organized.
on the list of reasons why arma is poop, stuff like this are at the very bottom imo
[QUOTE=Mbbird;35701986]Its be nice though if we could just do what stewe said. Dedicated roles are pretty important though, keeps everything more organized.[/QUOTE] but what if someone got bored of being that role, my skin has a pkm because i liked being a machine gunner when i got it made, and now ive kinda drifted away form using those guns.
My loadout has an M110 :( plus I love my generation kill skin niko. Forgot to mention it looks Awesome

Notrabies and I are going to play Sins of Sol tonight if anyone has it and wants to get in on it. [i]FishMuffin[/i]

[editline]24th April 2012[/editline] Also, someone else should buy it and join in with us. You get beta access just by preordering the game on Steam, which means you can cancel your prepurchase if you don't like it and get your money back.
If you buy the game right now I'll play with you until Fish and Notrabies are good to go at 10
Whoa wtf is happening here I don't mean that you're going to be stuck in a role forever, just suggesting that it'd be nice that when we need a role filled, we have people that actually know what they're doing. Not every mission is going to have a marksman, not every mission is going to require an AT gunner, etc. But if it does, we can have someone who knows that they're doing fill that slot. This helps avoid backblast ff incidents, aggressive marksmen dying and losing our force multiplier, etc.
i want to be squad support!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
For support weapons we should use the IAR and then give everyone else STANAG guns so when the SAW gunner goes down a rifleman can take his Cmags and take over his role. Also at the very least everyone should be able to proficiently use an assault rifle, a grenade launcher and light AT.

that's because we die and grab new mags from the box all the time, man. and a few people use AK's, so they've got ammo galore from the baddies.

[QUOTE=piggycan99;35704676]why would we all need guns with same mags, i prefer ak's[/QUOTE] So you can exchange ammunition. If someone runs dry they can throw a mag or two their way. If everyone has different ammunition or mag types than you can't share. Makes it easier to ruck up one kind of mag and ammo than two or three different ones too.

i prefer russian guns over american, or like the FAL.
