    Famas..

    Is it just me or is this gun overpowered? I mean.. ffs it's a french made gun and the french can't make anything mechanical that works properly - there cars spend more time in the garage than the road so what chance is there that a gun they made would be any good!?

    Edit for those people who don't have the sense to tell when someone might just be possibly taking the piss. I don't hate the French - it's okay.

    looooooooool
    but tbh i have been seeing the famas tends to own me a lot more than any other gun. like ill be running with 100% health and i swear i get shot once, literally once or twice, not even hs and i die. look and its a famas. it seems that dice bodged a lot of things with the new update. co-op has messed up with unlocks, glitches with new guns etc

    Its OP at close range but the rate of fire seems to hinder it at longer ranges it performs like it does IRL afaik high rate of fire so thats why people drop so quickly.

    Jezz.. Get over yerself pal. As it happens there are many aspects of French culture that I love, the food, cinema the attitude - however it's also the case that the French don't have the greatest rep when comes to things mechanical. Feel better now?

    Nope.. I was drawing the conclusion that it seemed unlikely that they'd of made a fantastic and reliable gun. That they may have done I would find surprising.. but far from impossible. TBH i'd more expect a very beautiful, highly effective when working but somewhat temperamental to the point of almost, but not quite, being useless. If the representation of the FAMAS in game is a fair one then hats off to French - as I'm not a military expert on modern weapons or ancient (beyond being able to name lots due to MW and Battlefield) I couldn't say!

    Most of these dam assualt rifles are overpowered. Everybody and their momma has an RPG.

    Sniper rifles need to be beefed up, cause i can run around with a sniper rifle on a short scope, and blast 4-5 rounds in someone and they still wont die. I miss the sniper rifles in BFBC2...

    I've heard people complaining about this on the official Battlefield forums. I think it has to do with the fact that it's overused, as it's a new weapon, so it automatically makes it overpowered in some people's opinions. I haven't tried it yet so I can't say for sure.

    You do realize it is a game right? It will work how the devs want it to work regardless of what country makes it.

    You do realise it was tongue in chee.. oh you didn't did you? Go and get a brain - insert it in to the empty cavity behind your eyes and try again! :-)

    And... FYI.. yes it's a game.. it however supposed to be a battle simulation yes? I suspect quite a lot of effort went into making each weapon as close a match to the real gun as possible - thus the comment about it seemingly being very powerful & reliable.. which lead to the comments on the French and their mechanical aptitude. It may well be that it's a very fair reflection of the gun and it's one of the best assault rifles money can buy - or it might be that as Silent Assassin very sagely noted just a case of a new toy being over used and perceptions being warped due to this overuse factor.. which if we return to my original comment where I'd put 'Is it just me?' leading to the implication that I was quite aware that it might just indeed be me.

    All offence meant.

    Ohhh I get it now, someone probably raped you in game with it and in your butthurt rage post you have to make fun of everyone pointing out the stupidity of your post.. got it.
