    One of the changes in the upcoming patch is that there is no longer a delay between firing bursts. Guns will now fire as fast as you hit the fire button.

    Since I enjoy using semi auto snipers, but I can't stand having the gun "jam" seemingly randomly, this change is great for me. It should help burst fire weapons too.

    I hate it, when you die and get revived the gun magically switches back to burst fire mode ( it is it's main mode) and if someone is close up to you you're f****d

    It really is a Love/Hate kind of weapon this time around. I know some people who swear by it but they seem to be folks who are really accurate with their first shot placement. ie- taking 100% advantage of 0 spread from the Heavy Barrel. You also have to adjust your play style to avoid CQB for the most part (unless you're a MASS M26 whore too..)

    F2000 very tidy bit of kit, not great long range but nice mid.

    Nah, a standard combat load is at least 210 rounds. That's only 7 mags, one in the gun, and 6 mags on the MTV vest in 3 ammo pouches bunched up in twos.

    Yes, but I think there is a important difference between how many rounds an infatryman fired on average per kill, and how many run was fired in total per kill.
    What does an infantryman carry, a 100 rounds? So for each kill, something between 1000 and 4000 infantrymen have exhausted their ammo supply. Does that seem likely?

    But add in a few choppers with miniguns, and it starts to make more sense.

    Well apparently in the middle east for every Insurgent killed 400,000 rounds are fired. The 5.56 is notorious for sucking arse, and thats not counting suppressive fire.

    Night vision is about all they use batteries on for basic infantry men as far as I know, oh and their radios.
