I've fired a 12-gauge from the hip that had less recoil, seriously, I wanted to know how much less it would be. Since nobody was there to laugh at me (I was in the middle of no where with my brother-in-law ) so I hipped a shot or 2, the recoil was crazy low, the barrel hardly moved up at all.Tak
I do not agree that the recoil is overdone from the hip or anywhere else.
Seeing as you stated you played DoD:S (I assume thats the version you meant), you should also be aware of the so called "skill cap" in that game. Since that game has very wide cone of fire and really low recoil, you can only get so good before your just stuck in a rut and even if you get the drop on someone there is no guarantee you wont die. Its so beyond dumb. This is what the russian smgs in ROOST feel like. Sometimes I wait for the for another class to become availible if its full to avoid having to pick a class with a smg. And when I do pick it every once in a while or pick one up (I only pick up mp40's) I walk around and feel like a old gangster flipping a coin cause its a 50/50 chance I live. Yes, I too don't want "armchair generals" to be insanely good with smgs just because they a haveBobCobb
If all else fails, go practice more.
