The other auto
« on: June 14, 2006, 05:54:51 pm »
Really, why are regular FN Minimi users by far the most rare of autos and maybe even of all primaries?

I dont actualy mind that its relitivly rare/forgotten, because the sence of individualy in servers is part of its charm.

I know Minimi users arn't that rare, but the other autos do seem more common. In some weapon balance suggestions it is sometimes not mentioned yet all the others are, and in the http://wiki.soldat.nl/Index there was no description for it in the weapons section apart from the title until I added a description (although there is a dicription in the weapons individual page).

I would have thought that people will be attracted to the large clip size and the way that is is a very all-round weapon with its decent damage/Rate Of Fire ratio, its large clip and good range.  Are people put off by the bink?

it's my favorite weapon.

it's the biggest machine gun out there. for MEN. (not including minigun, which looks so cool...but so weak...)

it's accuracy is more accurate than ak, and any other autos.

you can still do fast click shots.

yea, i guess most people don't understand. FN mini appears to be weak because of the weak damage while slower firing rate.

EDIT: nice added description lol.

You'll see several R/S players with Minimis.  Pink Smurf<HOMO>, for instance.

I still use it.  The reload sets me back, but I get good kills from it.  ;D

i've just been reading the other weapons there....they all suck, the descriptions i meant.

not all lol, but most of them.
this is wiki, it's suppose to be focused on describing the weapon while giving out small tips or facts about the weapon..

but if you look at the ruger section, the dude begins by telling you how to kill an opponent.
then he even write "mancer's tip for using ruger" below.

It's a good weapon. I admit I have completely forgot about it for some reason.

Maybe because it's not clustered with all the other autos (minigun doesn't count).

It's my favorite weapon besides the MP5. I've become quite accurate with quick bursts by clicking many times instead of holding down the button. :D

the FN as whole isnt forgotten, its just misunderstood. I think most people see it my the minigun and are like"uhhh this is prolly like this piece of crap" I think the way it is put in the menu causes it to be unused as funny as that sounds
Your acting like your having a duel and your opponent gets a pistol and you get a spork.
Isn't that pretty much what it is? I dunno wtf a spork is, I suppose it's way weaker than the pistol since you compared that to this.

In the Australian servers, this used to be the dominant gun back in 1.2.1 times.

Nearly everyone used to use it in clanwars and it's still used a fair bit these days.

Having said that, the Australian servers are still dominated by auto's and we don't really have the problem with M79's that everyone always complains about.

I'm an Aussie, and when i play DM i use the Minimi. It's really handy because it's got such a big clip and does decent damage.

I use it occasionally, but then, I use just about everything occasionally. I prefer the AK-74 for some reason. The Minimi isn't a bad weapon, it just doesn't appeal to me as much as the others.

I think the reason it doesnt appel to people is the sound of the weapon and its shape. All the other guns (besides law and minigun) are small.  The reason I say sound is because after using the Halo mod, the Ak seemed a whole lot better.

Maybe its just a state of mind.

Truth.  Probably the most used auto in Aus. servers.

I think people relate it to the mini really and try to stay away from it, I know i did for a bit. I still don't use it but i know its an effective weapon.
