TDM is too fast paced for me. I used to solely play that when I got BF3, but that was before I realised how fun rush and conquest were. I mostly stick to the city maps, occasionally jet/heli maps if with a friend for some variety.

Which is why I go on "No Shotguns" servers. Then, there's only about 1-3 people using shotguns. I can tolerate that. Not 12 people on the other team suing the DAO-12.

I also don't like people spamming shotguns in the center of Canals, but using a defibrillator racks up huge points when you have teammates in the center  having a shotgun war. You can't switch and reload that fast using other types of guns with a defibrillator than shotguns, and I need that reload interruption to be able to gradually reload extended mags on my MCS while reviving.

I would also like to add that the best secondaries for any class are the Magnum and the G-18.

The rex has a faster fire rate and same damage as the magnum, and the 93r has 1 more bullet and is more controllable than the g-18.

Rex does less damage. And is worse in long range. G18 is full-auto, 93R is a burst.

Less damage over long range. Close-mid range is same.

G18 is full-auto, 93R is a burst.

The 93r might as well be full auto because it has the same fire rate if not above the g18. It's also more controllable, you can fire small bursts with very little recoil, while the g18 bounces everywhere and is less accurate.

93R is a lot better than the G18. Just use G17c to replace G18. G18 recoil is all over the place. I tested it. Accuracy can sometimes tell the difference whether a gun is better or not.

Much worse accuracy though, also the sights are disgusting and way too large. It's also a lot easier to get a headshot with the .44, making the fire rate irrelevant.

I really like G18. I don't understand how you like 93R more; I can't aim with it at all.

For the most part I use pistols for close range, so the accuracy and sights are irrelevant. I don't take the time to aim that close up and most of the bullets will hit, making it better than the magnum at close range, because of the increased fire rate.

I don't understand how you like 93R more; I can't aim with it at all.

Depends how you use it. If you're spamming the trigger at mid-long range, it won't work. You have to use small bursts at those ranges, but in close range it's one of my preferred sidearms. The spread is relatively tight because it doesn't bounce all around like the g18. The only thing that I can think of that the g18 has over the 93r is that there's a suppressed version. I don't use suppressed sidearms because the hipfire is worse, but I guess if you want to be stealthy that's a plus.

I only pull out my pistol when my primary is out of bullets and I have to reload. But then, there are enemies around me so I take out my pistol and finish them off.
