Does any one know if the AS-VAL now suffers from the suppressor accuracy changes in the new patch, Or does it not take affect on this gun because the suppressor is part of the gun and not a attachment ?
I havn't seen anyone whine about it yet (and people do that a lot) so I'm guessing not.
It's damage dropoff begins at 6M and ends at 40M, so not as drastic as the standard suppressor which I believe changes the dropoff to 4M-30M. Bullet speed is slow at 300M/S.

Great gun as a semi, but the auto is worthless now.
yap sprays like hell now in full auto...
Stil great if you use laser to it!
Well The AS-VAL was gonna be my new support weapon, But after playing with it post patch it does seem to be alot weaker now. Might still be good option for metro/bazzar were its close quaters and its always handy to stay off the mini map on those two maps.
they nerfed the M16A3 damage also, i know that in patch notes it wasnt mentioned but i guarantee you peeps that M16A3 is not same as it was before, and its not only recoil.
You need extra bullets for most weapons, unless if they are close and you fire in their head.
