Description

I would like to see the full length M14 that's included with OA possibly get a simple RCO addition. Maybe even a side ironsighted one like in the RH pack. I think it'd be a simple addition that'd be loved by us players. It's fielded in Iraq and Afghanistan by some regular Army soldiers, and even a few Special Ops units. It's not unreasonable to add, as the base weapon is in the game but doesn't have these variants for whatever reason.

Honestly i'm not really wanting to add all of those weapons that that poster wanted. I thought about it and honestly it's a bit much to add a million of those weapons from the RH Pack. An M14 RCO and possibly an ironsight version is all I could ask for in the long run.

That ticket is just a collection point for various guns that RH has made that people have asked for in ACE, including the M14 RCO. It doesn't mean that they're all going to be added.

Would be good if they were though. ;)

+1 I hate having an aim point on a damn M14, would be nice to have a good scope.

To be brutally honest I think just an M14 RCO by itself doesn't need to be included in a massive debate of adding 20+ or so different weapons like the M39, M16A3, Mk14, Mk18, and the other bits of the pack. It's simple, it's practical, it's realistic.

So where does this suggestion stand in now? It's a model that's already done, just needs to be added to ACEX.

Well point is, the DMR Rifle basicly IS a modified M14 with Scope. Yes it is not an ACOG Scope, but it does get the job done.

Note the job that the Mk17 RCO does, the point is that the M14 should also get that same attention. It's a far more common rifle issued then the Mk17 atm, it should get an ACOG addition that it deserves.

dmr is used by the marine corps not the army the army uses the m14,m14ebr and sdm-r so for realism some people may prefer to use the m14

Correct, the M-14 has become fielded again by the Army. They found the usefulness of a battle rifle like the M-14 back in a Marksmans role. It's been fielded somewhat from the images i've seen with a mixed bag of different optics. Though the most common ones i've seen are the two i've posted above, ACOGs.

I am just gonna write this here and hope it gets the due attention it deserves. The countless arguments that people are having about adding which variant and why is absolutely getting frustrating sometimes. I've had my fair share of bickering with people personally and honestly it doesn't matter. What does matter is that the base gun is already in the game and in real life is used by a host of different military branches within the United States Armed Forces. I've so far have seen more pictures of the classic Vietnam length M14 with different optics then any others so far.

I honestly don't see a reason as to why we should go out of our way to add the numerous different brands of the M14 when you can stick with what is already in the game and causes the least amount of headaches overall. I'd like to see a developer look into possibly handling this request finally.

Any chance we could get an Ironsight version of the M14 for historic or Vietnam era missions? I know this was brought up before, and this is a bump, but would it be at all possible?
