Hi ppl, i want a barrel for my m95 and m14... i dont have much funds because i get them by sp.
I wanted a predator barrel but its very expensive for me and the closest thing i saw to that was heavy barrel...what do u think ? its a good option for m95 and even m14? or its very bad compared to predator?

If I were you, I'd save my funds and keep doing SP untill I collect enough to buy the barrel of my choice

For sniper rifles, the best barrel is the precision barrel.

Precision, without a doubt. Take that from a veteran M14 user.

Meh, I don't think the SKS really needs any more velocity Tongue

It's not about the velocity per se since the base weapon has a decent velocity, it's primarily about reducing the drop at range. That said, the less drop you have the better off you are in making your shots count. Given that this weapon exceeds the maximum ranges of all other recon weapons in the game, why not minimize the drop in order to maximize effectiveness? I do understand that this weapon isn't really suited for extended combat at those ranges but, as the saying goes:

"Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it."

Do you have ballistic scope? Because I honestly can't see there being any bullet drop with just the raw SKS at the ranges the default scope is suited for. It would kinda just be overkill lol

heavy barrel is an extremely weak attachment, nearly pointless. i use precision on anything that's capable of effective fire over 150 meters (AKA all recon, medic, and assault weapons). i use predator on engineer only because i never bothered to buy precision, got predator in the dev kit and it seems to work fine for all SMGs.

I don't have Ballistic Scope, so I use it with Vulcan. At about 200m range it felt as it had no drop (with Precision Barrel). Anyways, what other barrel would I use on it? Predator? Might be a viable option, but with Viper Mags SKS already has good damage consistency and satisfying minimal damage, so I see no need to extend close/medium range.
So I just stick with precision Smile

Oh yeah, viper mags makes all range-increases barrels practically useless Dodgy you didn't say which mags you had! But I would imagine the SKS's deviation at 200m would make it quite an ammo-waster unless you had precision stock or something. I always imagined semi-autos as mid-ranged rifles and I saved the long range for the bolt-actions.

M95 with precision barrel, ballistic scope, a sleeping bag, a campfire, and a campervan, will still outrange anyone. Oldskool camping rules.

@ V
All it takes is steady trigger finger Smile As long as you don't spam bullets, it's pinpoint accurate.

I've used the Copperhead barrel to great effect as it stretches the short and mid range scales somewhat favorably despite a very slight increase to "control". Here's a comparison showing the barrels in question with no other attachments:

Heavy barrel is good on AR's untill you get predator or something, i use it on my AEK and it's awesome.
