Version 1.2

===============
Version History
1.0 - Finished charts for all guns. Have descriptions for each one.
1.1 (6-1-08) - Added a "Notes on what numbers mean" section, improved some
 descriptions.
1.2 (6-3-08) - Added a "Kills in" section that explains exactly how fast each
 weapon kills.


============================
 NOTES ON WHAT NUMBERS MEAN
============================

-Damage-
The damage statistics are formatted as follows: (maximum damage) - (minimum
damage).

-Range-
Formatted: (range A) - (range B).
When the range reaches range A, the damage each bullet does will start to
gradually drop from maximum damage, until you reach range B. At this point the
gun is at minimum damage, and will continue at that damage.
2000 units = 50 meters.

-Rate of Fire-
Measured in "Rounds per Minute."

-Kills in-
Measured in milliseconds (ms), I did not make "Kills in" sections for Semi-
automatics (for obvious reasons) or for long ranges (because not all your shots
will hit, and the gradual deterioration of damage over ranges).

 M16A4
=======

|==================================================================|
|Damage  | Range     | Range Silenced | Rate of Fire | Reload Time |
|------------------------------------------------------------------|
|40 - 30 | 1500-2000 | 500 - 1000     | 925 RPM      | 2 Seconds   |
|        |           |                |              |(3.365 Empty)|
|==================================================================|

Description:
A 3-shot burst gun that kill in one burst at close range. Good damage makes it
work well with a silencer. Can one-burst-kill from the hip with steady aim.

Recoil Notes:
- No sway
- Very little recoil
- sights reset themselves after each burst

Quirks:
The delay between bursts cuts the M16A4's effective rate of fire to 450 RPM.

Recommended Attachments:
Red dot sight
Silencer

Recommended Perks:
Stopping Power
Deep Impact
Steady Aim

Kills In:
194 ms  Normally
129 ms  With Stopping Power
259 ms  Against Juggernaut (not considering 2 bursts/kill)
129 ms  With Double Tap


=======
 AK-47
=======

|==================================================================|
|Damage  | Range     | Range Silenced | Rate of Fire | Reload Time |
|------------------------------------------------------------------|
|40 - 30 | 1500-2000 | 500 - 1000     | 700 RPM      | 2.5 Seconds |
|        |           |                |              |(3.25 Empty) |
|==================================================================|

Description:
High-powered assault rifle that works extremely well in medium to close range
because of it's high power and relatively low recoil.

Recoil Notes:
- Has sway.
- Gun APPEARS to have high recoil, but in reality the sight levels itself off
before firing off the next round.
- Noticeable kick, though so best fired in bursts or manual single-shot over
long ranges.

Quirks:
This gun is an odd one. For some reason, the gun's damage decreases to 40-20
when used with a Red Dot or Silencer. For maximum damage use with no
attachments, grenade launcher, or ACOG scope. Also, the AK-47's grenade launcher
comes with a view finder. Some people testify that they aim better with the
grenade launcher attached because of this. It's really all up to personal
preference, though.

Recommended Attachments:
Nothing
Grenade Launcher
ACOG Scope

Recommended Perks:
Stopping Power
Steady Aim

Kills In:
258 ms  Normally
172 ms  With Stopping Power
344 ms  Against Juggernaut

|30 - 20 | 1500-2000 | 500 - 1000     | 850 RPM      | 2.03 Seconds |
|        |           |                |              |(3.36 Empty)  |
|===================================================================|

Description:
Jack of all trades gun that is accurate at long ranges, and has a good rate of
fire for close quarters combat. Gets beat by long ranged rifles at long range,
and SMGs at close range. Good iron sights and high rate of fire for close
encounters mean the gun works well silenced. Works well with many perks due to
its versatility.

Recoil Notes:
- Has major sway.
- Has almost no actual recoil, but you'll have to readjust every few seconds
because the gun's sway can move you off target.

Quirks:
None to speak of. What you see is what you get.

Recommended Attachments:
Red Dot Sight
Silencer

Recommended Perks:
Stopping Power
Double Tap
Deep Impact
UAV Jammer
Dead Silence

Kills In:

 G3
====

|=====================================================================|
|Damage  | Range     | Range Silenced | Rate of Fire   | Reload Time  |
|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
|40 - 30 | 1500-2000 | 500 - 1000     | Single shot,   | 2.75 Seconds |
|        |           |                | Up to 1200 RPM | (3.75 Empty) |
|=====================================================================|

Description:
Medium-power long-ranged rifle. less recoil, less damage. Works surprisingly
well in Close quarters engagements from the hip, especially with Steady Aim.
Great iron sights make this gun good with a grenade launcher.

Recoil Notes:
- No sway.
- No kickback in any direction, as the sight levels off before you can fire off
another round.
- sight levels before you can fire off another round.
- Very little kickback with ACOG Scope.

Quirks:
Silenced G3 has an erroneously long Melee Delay, longer than the stabbing
animation, so the melee attack does not work.

Recommended Attachments:
Grenade Launcher
Red Dot Sight
ACOG Scope

Recommended Perks:
Stopping Power
Deep Impact
Steady Aim


======
 G36C
======

|==================================================================|
|Damage  | Range     | Range Silenced | Rate of Fire | Reload Time |
|------------------------------------------------------------------|
|30 - 20 | 1500-2000 | 500 - 1000     | 750 RPM      | 2.1 Seconds |
|        |           |                |              |(2.967 Empty)|
|==================================================================|

Description:
Basically the same as the M4, except with a lower rate of fire, longer reload
time, and noticably more kickback. So why bother? Read on.

Recoil Notes:
- Has very little sway (explained in more detail below)
- Noticable kickback.

Quirks:
OK, The G36C's an odd one. The G36C, like all the automatic assault rifles, has
sway. But the G36C has noticably less sway (70% the amount and nearly half the
speed of the M4 when standing). The amount of sway lowers even further as you
crouch or go prone. By the time you're prone, the gun has almost no sway, and
the sway it does have is extremely slow. This works with all the G36C's
attachments, including the ACOG Scope. So if you love the idea of a mini-scope
on your assault rifle, but hate the ACOG's sway, this iS the gun for you.

Recommended Attachments:
ACOG Scope

Recommended Perks
Stopping Power
Steady Aim (You need it on any automatic gun you're using an AGOC with)

Kills In:
322 ms  Normally
240 ms  With Stopping Power
400 ms  Against Juggernaut
213 ms  With Double Tap

 M14
=====

|=====================================================================|
|Damage  | Range     | Range Silenced | Rate of Fire   | Reload Time  |
|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
|50 - 40 | 1500-2000 | 500 - 1000     | Single shot,   | 2.5 Seconds  |
|        |           |                | Up to 1200 RPM | (3.06 Empty) |
|=====================================================================|

Description:
Higher-powered version of the G3 with more kickback.

Recoil Notes:
- No sway
- The M14 has much more kickback than the G3. As a result, if you hit the fire
button as fast as you can, you'll end up firing subsequent rounds in the middle
of the gun's kick, making you lucky to hit anything. In order to be accurate,
you must wait for the gun's sight to level off (which it will do automatically).

Quirks:
None to speak of. What you see is what you get.

Recommended Attachments:
Red Dot Sight

Recommended Perks:
Stopping Power
Deep Impact

|===================================================================|

Description:
A nostalgic call back to the gun that owned so hard in Call of Duty 1-3.
Basically a slower-firing AK-47 with no attachments.

Recoil Notes:
- No sway
- High Recoil
- High Kick back, but only after the first couple rounds. Should be fired in
bursts.

Quirks:
It's got no attachments!!

Recommended Perks:
Stopping Power
Steady Aim

|===================================================================|

Description:
Extremely high-powered (for a submachine gun) SMG with a relatively low rate of
fire. Excellent in close quarters, recoil makes it difficult to use at long
ranges.

Recoil Notes:
- No sway
- Moerate recoil in a cluster around your sight
- Fire in very small bursts or manual single shot for long range fire fights.

Quirks:
None to speak of. It's a very good gun, though.

|===================================================================|

Description:
Odd gun with extremely high damage at extremely close range, and one of the
weakest guns everywhere else. Extremely small clip size. Works surprisingly well
with an ACOG (probably due to low recoil)

Recoil notes:
- No sway.
- Almost no kickback or recoil.
- Higher kickback with a red dot sight.
- Very little kickback with an ACOG scope.

Quirks:
Nothing that doesn't show up in the statistics. Worth noting is that the gun's
range is so dismally small by default that there's really no reason not to use a
silencer.

|===================================================================|

Description:
High powered Submachine gun that resembles an assault rifle more than an SMG.

Recoil notes:
- Only Submachine gun with sway.
- Recoil similar to the MP5 (cluster around your sight).

When equipped with a silencer or red dot has the hip accuracy of the assault
rifles (less accurate than normal)

|===================================================================|

Description:
Extremely fast-firing SMG. Good in close quarters combat.

Recoil notes:

fired in bursts for long ranged fighting.

|        |            |                |              | (3.5 Empty) |
|===================================================================|

Description:
SMG with a large 50 round clip, little recoil, and a great rate of fire. Has
earned a dubious repuation as a "noob" gun.

Recoil Notes:
- No sway.
- Low recoil.
- Fantastic iron sight.
- Basically not kickback. with a red dot scope it appears to have some, but it
levels off before firing off the next round.
- Best when sprayed in close quarters, bursted at long ranges.

Quirks:
Although this has been patched out of the console versions of the game, The P90
used to (and still does on PC) have 75% more sprint than the other SMGs. Again,
it has been patched out of the console versions of the game.
