I can't wait, no more having to go without Pro perks and now I can level up any weapon without having to worry about loosing everything. I'm gonna become a beast!

I will have 2 Prestige tokens to use on double weapon XP. I'm thinking I'll use them to level up the harder to level weapons. Maybe the AA12 and the PM-9. Never use either of these much, didn't like them much either.

What weapons do you think are the hardest to level up?

I'd assume the AA-12 or the Dragunova would be the hardest weapons to level up. The PM-9 wasn't that hard once you got rapid fire.

I would say the Dragunov but that might just be because I suck with it. Not sure how you fare with it, but once I try to get that gun gold, I'm going to dread that task.

Wow! Congratulations. I would never be able to play that much to get to prestige 20, even if I had double XP 24/7.

The AA-12 and Dragunov would be the hardest to level up (to gold), I would guess at.

I have every gun gold, and you definitely have your work cut out for you in not just the AA-12, but all the bolt/level/pump action shotguns as well. In general shotguns are gonna hurt your kd at least until you get Range. The Dragunov is pretty bad as well, but I knew that, and I really wanted to just get it out of the way, so that was about my tenth gold gun. Now I almost miss it haha.

My best advice for not getting too frustrated at the game would definitely be to use weapons on the maps that best suit the weapon, that's how you do well. Only use your shotguns on Dome, Lockdown, Arkaden and Seatown, and only use your snipers on Bakaara, Outpost, Liberation and you should be okay.

I don't level up guns I don't like so I can't say what's the hardest, but the AA-12 was the easiest shotgun to level up for me, people just don't know how to use it (not speaking for everyone).

In all seriousness did you camp in any corners, because for the life of me I could barely get more than one guy without having to reload, and people are always running in pairs. What proficiency did you use as well?

Camp? Lol! If you camp how do you expect to level up the gun?

But I use Damage on every Shotgun. My ideal setup for all Shotguns is Damage and Extended Mags -- you can never go wrong with that.

But before unlocking Damage and Range I just used kick and Focus.

As it is I've golded many guns on my way to 20th prestige. P90 has been gold at least 7 times, L118 around 4 or 5, ACR a few time, MSR a few, MK14 9ish times, and a lot of guns once. I've never gotten a shotty gold, but I did get damage on a spas 12, I was sad when I prestiged that time. I never used the Dragunov much but I thought it was about the same as the RSASS, which I treated like a long range MK14, even went ACOG with it a bit.
On average I gold 3-4 weapons per prestige, just wish I didn't have to start over now.

Not really worried about the SMGs, assault rifles, or even the snipers. Shottys have me worried a bit as well as the LMGs. I'm good with the L86 and the MG36 but I don't know about the others, they seem to lack any sort of accuracy to me.

The MK46 is really the surprise package of the LMG's, it's actually a very solid gun. In fact for me the worst was the MG36, had a little bit too much sideways recoil, so if you're like me, if you like the MG36, you won't find the LMG's overall too hard.

Once you put grip on the MG36 you don't get that side to side effect, it's actually really accurate. Throw on a silencer later and you're golden.

WHOA !

Dont go wasting those tokens on the AA-12 and Dragunov!

The AA-12 is a great close up weapon and if you use an MP-9 as your secondary you should be fine. I used that setup on almost any map and it was perfectly useable. I'd just run around with the MP-9 until i hit a tight section then whip out the AA.

And The Dragunov is either a crappy sniper, or crappy semi-auto rifle but is useable in both roles. I used it for a good while as an AR and getting kills wasnt my problem. The fact that the Mk14 was better was my problem. Also if you are struggling... remember the MP-9. Use that as your primary and the other weapon barely matters. Just use it when the oppertunity is right.

I'd save those tokens for pump actions personally. I am a big shottie fan and its usually my favoourite class in FPS game but some of the ones in this game are just aweful. They dont really perform in the reliable CQB role a shotgun should. And not just in performance, they can also be incredibly boring and frustratuing to level up. You'd need to pay me £1000 before i'd gold the SPAS, Models or KSG.

It all depends on playstyle really. I'd have a real good bash at all of the weapons individually, taking each for a little test run trying to level them up as quick as possible before you decide. Only you can be sure.

Dragunov was my first gold gun on this game and I've played for over five days (not much compared to a lot of people but whatever). It's seriously not bad when you get used to managing the recoil and trigger speed needed to make it decent. I think I have my second best gun ratio with it IIRC. With Speed, Quickdraw and an ACOG Scope you can charge around at SMG speed which often catches people out in objective-based modes.

In fact the only other primary I've maxed-out is the Riot Shield haha.
