There are enough places to find other information about other things. So, if you've come to take a mathematical approach in examining weapons, then this is the guide you're looking for. Kill times depict the amount of time taken to kill one opponent. This is important because it can help you determine which guns are superior in any given situation. Ultimately, this guide will help you win. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX -2.0: Prerequisite Information- There are a number of things to understand before you can see the kill times: ---I took into account every possible combination of distance, perks, opponent's perks, and attachments, and calculated each accordingly. ---The kill time begins right AFTER the first shot is taken. ---All times are in seconds. ---There are 3 calculation types. One is for Bolt Action Rifles, Shotguns, and a Scoped M1 Garand. Another is for all the Fully Automatics and a Non-Scoped M1 Garand. The third is for all Non-Capped Semi-Automatics. ---For the Bolt Action Rifles, Shotguns, and a Scoped M1 Garand, this guide will only examine 2HKO's. This is because a OHKO will simply be a time of "0". This calculation type will be referred to as "Simple". ---The calculation type for all the Fully Automatic weapons and a Non- Scoped M1 Garand will be referred to as "Complex". ---For every non-capped Semi-Automatic weapon, the kill times cannot be definitively determined. This is because their rates of fire are variable. Different people will pull the trigger at different speeds. But, for the sake of trying to include and compare every gun, each non capped semi-automatic will be given an RPM of 600. This RPM is extremely good, so it assumes very skilled triggering. Also note that there is no Double Tap situation in any non capped semi-automatic. This calculation type will be referred to as "Non-Capped Semi-Automatic". ---All damage multipliers are disregarded. The only multipliers for the "complex" and "non-capped semi-automatic" calculation type weapons are headshots anyway. The weapons which have more than just a headshot multiplier all fall under the "simple" calculation type category. The "simple" weapons are being calculated in a way in which multipliers won't make a difference. ---Using the word "regular" is meant to signify the kill time calculated with no perks. It is the control time. ---Using the word "close" is meant to signify the maximum amount of damage delivered by the weapon, because damage has not decreased over distance. ---Using the word "far" is meant to signify the minimum amount of damage delivered by the weapon, because damage has decreased over distance by the largest possible amount. ---Stopping Power and Juggernaut cancel each other out, despite their mathematical weight being different. A shooter with Stopping Power and a target with Juggernaut will have a kill time equal to the Regular Kill Time. Note that Double Tap and Juggernaut DO NOT cancel each other out. A separate calculation will be given for this situation. ---You should note that this guide only covers "Core" multiplayer modes, and not "Hardcore" modes. ---Note that for the PC version, there are two weapon differences. Firstly, the MP40 deals less damage. Secondly, the multipliers for each Bolt Action Rifle, excluding the PTRS-41, are a little lower. The MP40 difference is very important for this guide, but the Bolt Action Rifle difference actually changes nothing because of the way their kill times are calculated. The way we will take into account this MP40 difference is that we will create a separate gun called "MP40 PC". Again, we do not need to take into account the Bolt Action Rifle difference. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX -3.0: Kill Times by Weapon- This section will organize the kill times by each weapon.

It leads all Automatic weapons in close Kill Time with no perks involved, which means you can pair it up with Juggernaut to beat any other automatic gun using stopping power; and they certainly will since the MP40 is superior in almost every respect unless they use stopping power. Either shotgun is its only real competition at close range, due to their OHKO capabilities, but even they have numerous drawbacks which hinder their overall effectiveness. The MP40 is the most used gun for a reason. ---In the PC version, the MP40 is severely neutered. Taking its throne in Close Range Combat is a tie between the Type 100 and the Thompson. They both have identical statistics, and both lead the charts in close range when no perks are involved as well as when using stopping power or double tap. Choosing between the two will be a preference issue. ---At first glance, the M1 Garand with a Sniper Scope appears to be decidedly superior then all the rest of the Bolt Action Rifles. However, this is not necessarily the case as the 444 RPM combined with Bolt Action power is offset by the fact that it has less damage multipliers than the other scoped rifles. This means that many OHKO's for the other scoped rifles will be 2HKO's for the M1 Garand. In the end, the superiority of the M1 Garand in multiple shot situations is not enough to warrant its usage over the other scoped rifles. ---When you move past the M1 Garand, it appears the PTRS-41 is the best Bolt Action Rifle. It is a real monster. Its only drawback is that you cannot remove the Sniper Scope from the rifle. The PTRS-41 even damages tanks by 15 or 25 depending on where you hit them. It also sways the least out of all the Bolt Action's. Not to mention, it tears off limbs. ---At long range, if you do not want to use anything with a sniper scope, the 4 remaining Bolt Action's become a matter of preference. They are very similar. Statistically, the Springfield is best. These are up to personal taste here. ---The .357 Magnum is unarguably the best pistol. As soon as you get it, equip it. This is of course unless you wish to use the Overkill Perk, in which case you'd be equipping a second primary weapon. ---As far as a gun for all situations, it isn't recommended that you create a class that cover's everything. You'd be much better off creating a few specific classes, and playing the game according to which class you've made. A class with a Type 100 will want to be in close range as much as possible, while a class with an Arisaka will want to play in long range. ---These sections are making the assumption that you can fire a non capped semi automatic at 600 RPM's. This is a tall task, to say the least. But, if you can get it down, then you will be a force to be reckoned with. ---When it comes down to it, choosing your guns should be what you feel comfortable with. You must choose depending on your style of play, and which situation you're most likely to find yourself in. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX -6.0: Calculation Explanation- In a nutshell, each value is calculated by starting at this question: ---How many shots are required to kill in this situation? And then: ---How long will those shots take to process? Let's focus on calculating the first question first. Shots needed to kill are determined by a number of factors. The following are all the factors, and their explanations: ---Gun Damage: Base damage of each gun. Each gun has base damage for close range, and long range. ---Distance: A longer range means using the guns long range base damage, which is smaller. ---Stopping Power: Using Stopping Power multiplies the guns base damage by 1.4 ---Juggernaut: Facing a target with Juggernaut will reduce the gun's base power by a factor of 25 percent. Once all these factors are examined, you calculate how many shots it will take to kill in each situation. Each target has 100 HP. So, however many shots it takes to reach 100, after factoring in any perks or distance values, is the number you want to work with. Now that you have this number, we can move on to the second question. This question was: "How long will those shots take to process"? To determine this, we need to use the number of shots needed to kill that we just calculated, and multiply it by the speed that the bullets are exiting the gun. Note that since these numbers are calculated after the first shot, we need to subtract one from the hits needed to kill. Only one perk affects the rate of bullets, and that is Double Tap. Double Tap has the following effects on guns: ---Double Tap will multiply RPM's by 4/3. Note that RPM's can NEVER exceed 1200. --If a guns RPM's exceed 1200 after applying Double Tap (or the PPSH-41 normally), then it is capped at 1200. Also, as stated earlier, the number given to all non capped Semi Automatics is 600, with or without Double Tap. RPM effectively gives us the rate of the bullets that we need to multiply by shots to kill. However, we need to change RPM's into the appropriate number. This number is called Seconds per Bullet. Seconds per bullet is simply the reciprocal of bullets per second. Furthermore, bullets per second is directly related to bullets per minute, or RPM's. So, the calculation looks like this: ---Thompson: RPM = 750 ---750/60 = 12.50 = RPS, or Bullets per second (BPS) ---1/12.5 = 0.08 = Seconds per bullet (SPB) So, in our example we now have calculated that a Thompson will shoot a bullet at 0.08 seconds. And since we know it will take a Thompson 3 shots to kill at close range with no perks involved, we can make this final calculation: ---0.08 SPB X (3 Shots to Kill - 1) = 0.16 seconds to Kill. This is the process used for every gun, in any situation. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX -7.0: Frequently Asked Questions- Q. What is the best gun? A.
