Description

In real life Barrett M107 can fire faster than it can in Arma 2 (watch the videos). Would be good to increase Barrett`s firing speed.

Need some clear specs. What is the max rpm the weapon can fire ? Right now you can empty the 10 rnd. mag in 6 seconds.

As far as I know technicaly max rpm of M107 is ~450 (saw this value in article about M82, unfortunatelly I can`t provide something like prooflink) if shooter can pull the trigger so fast.

I don't think that semi-auto rifles have such spec as "rate of fire". Now you can see approx 240 rpm in videos (10 rounds in about 2.5 seconds). Not sure if there is anyone who can pull the trigger much faster than that.

So, we can stick with 240 rpm for now, right?

Updated by Robalo almost 4 years ago

I guess we can at least match the rate of fire of the AS-50, which is now set at 240 rpm (meaning doubling current rate for the M107).

Yes, thank you. That would be great.

Available in about to be released ACE for OA 1.12 RC4

Updated by Val almost 4 years ago

On the second video 7 shots fired for almost 1 second that gives approximately 420-450rpm if this information is still actual.

2,5 secs for me

Make 168 rounds per minute

Btw, i don´t get the point of this debate.
His accuracy is way off that way and who wants to shoot 7 rounds as fast as possible with this rifle????
Always seen the Barret as a precision rifle.

Depends on frames anyway. :P Oh, Arma. For taking out vehicles Huggy, especially in an urban setting and for suppressive fire - especially when mixed with the MK211.

Updated by Val almost 4 years ago

Well, Rye is right. Such a firing speed needed for stopping cars and suppressing enemies despite M107 isn`t often used for that.

Updated by Huggy almost 4 years ago

I see

I knew it Rye :o)

I am using this for stopping cars and suppressing enemies, works better and i don´t have to listen to 400 rpm :o)

Tastes differ, Huggy. I posted it to make M107 more similar to what I see in videos. Now, thanks to Robalo, rate of fire is increased. Later I just wrote that on the second vid it looks like rifle shoots slighty faster than 240rpm (~400-450rpm).

Updated by Huggy almost 4 years ago

Absolutely agreed, That´s why i like polite debates

I haven't played ACE2 for a long time
just a quick question, will this adjustment result in a bigger chance of tinnitus effect at all?
In my honest opinion, this would just give a chance to those who love firing M107 rapidly and I reckon it is a bit unrealistic if they can perform this continuously .

The faster you shoot it, the faster you go deaf if you don't have the earplugs in. Otherwise it's no problem.

Kevi Payne from barret.net wrote If you could pull the trigger fast enough, it's possible to get 325 rounds/min.
That`s a clear spec of M107 firing speed. Is it possible to increase M107 firing speed one more time?

Link ?

From your own source "If you factor in the human finger, it´s probably 150 rounds/min", read till the end.

So you are asking for a decrease according to the opinion of this expert?????

Updated by Huggy almost 4 years ago

Nice Rocko :o)

But how can i add trigger weight to my mouse???

Spill Pepsi on it, did the trick with some of my KB buttons :)

Tried that before :o)
Seriously the whole debate is kinda pointless, 150 rds/min will do the job in all emergency situations; tactics, preparation and a good loadout (Pistol for self-defence etc.) will do the rest.

So, is M107 going to be changed or it`s just about flood now?

Updated by rocko almost 4 years ago

Nothing is going to be changed unless we have a "The-super-click-tester"-Champion.
