any suggestions on weapons for starting players?
What are you looking for? It really depends what you want. A gun that headshots don't matter? A gun where ammo dosen't matter? A start game gun?
I would recommend the M1 garand, its a very cheap rifle with a decent munition capacity, just grind and it wiill be yours soon, I use it as a stepping stone to greater weapons such as the AK-47.
It depends it you have the backup weapon perk
I would recommend the laser pistol because i use it to make a big jump onto the laser Sub Machine Gun (SMG)
What do you think?
