  • Minigun If you've ever played R2DA since the 100th update you will notice a heavy change in the amount of people that use minigun, that's because of the M249.

    INB4 M249 is nerfed into the ground

    Disclaimer

    Since the M249 was added, it changed R2DA in a way that it shouldn't. Before I get hate posts by 12 year old keyboard warriors who only use the M249 and can't accept that other people have opinions I want to make one thing clear: the M249 is overpowered, if you don't believe me then you should read what's below.

    Why it needs a change

    The M249 can do a total damage of 10,450 without any armor increasing the ammo capacity, if you were to wear a tactical vest it would increase the total damage to 15,675, keeping in mind that the Minigun can do a total of 19,500 damage. While it might be true that the Minigun does a DPS of 1,625 DPS. You might argue that the Minigun has a higher DPS but you only get 300 rounds of it and even then due to the minigun's bad accuracy you'd be around 15,000 total damage if you had good aim. Back to the M249, if you were to go up to the bulldozer armor you would be near indestructible. The total damage would be 20,900 and considering the health addition it gives you. Though it is true you can wear a bandolier to increase the capacity to 450 rounds and deal 29,250 damage in total, all that is negated by the accuracy and limited amount of ammo you can carry. The M249 has good accuracy so you'll likely hit every hit if you have good aim. One fact is that if you are wearing bulldozer armor, refill 4 times at the same ammo box and hit every shot you can deal a staggering 104,500 total damage, around 3x the amount a Minigun can deal with the bandolier, also around 5x the amount it can deal without a bandolier without the negated effects. I don't think there's anyway you can defend the M249 counting those statistics. It doesn't really matter about the high rank requirement, at rank 20 it only takes a few days to get to rank 25.

    tl;dr M249 > Minigun

    Stats Suggestion

    Damage: 45

    Capacity: 100/0 or 100/1

    Can or Cannot be affected by ammo upgrading armors

    Firerate: 600

    Range: 180

    Hipfire reduces the range by 50

    Accuracy: 140

    Price: 70,000

    If the M249 is nerfed to be these stats which I highly doubt, there will be less people using the M249 and more balanced compared to the weapons in R2DA now.

      (inbound pufferfish jackass commenting "you jus cant get it becuz ur not good at the game XDDDDDDDDD")

      First off all the m249 do need a nerf like a good nerf to balance it out or it will become the next famas.

      And i think pr should nerf it to a stationary gun with high recoil,high supression,high ammo count,medium damage,medium acc,and a bipod

    • I have the m249 myself but I think it shouldn't get a nerf. Why? Because the accuracy is actually pretty shit unless you aim and crouch which puts you in a TERRIBLE position. The reload time is really long making you an easy target for the next few seconds. The only way this should get nerfed is in ANY PVP MODES just by its damage. A slight damage nerf in ffa and battle station and that's it because the gun is fine where it is.

    • Ummm... no? Its high rank weapon? It rewards prestige players for their effort? It costs 85K$? It slows you down? It has shit accuracy? Slow ass reload makes u almost not able to reload without taking 50 DMG if zombies are around? Do i need to tell more things?! Shut the %&#@ up and git gut, i didnt pay 85K$ for it to get nerfed now, because some babies like you cry about it, because they cant use it.. Minigun is as common as it was before.

    • As I have said previously.


      "It's not op as it slows you down considerably and has a long 6 sec reload. You cannot run and reload with this weapon like others. It requires for your teammates to cover you or for you to find a safe place to reload. Yesterday I was playing with it and I could not reload cause I was constantly on the run and my teammates weren't covering me. When I did I almost died. When I went up against one I took him out easily with a Digger. For TDM snipers easily counter this thing. This thing is no Barret 50c. If it was nerfed, it would not be worth using as it slows you down and requires team support. I would just use the Spas. Of course this thing is going to be powerful as a prestige weapon."


      Pretty much this thing is balanced by needing team support. If you have a bad team, people that die quickly, then it is better to use the Spas-12 or AK-47. You don't talk about anything I have stated in your long write up.

    • Long reload times and the fact you can't run with this weapon balances it out perfectly. If you are constantly running away from zombies while reloading, it' useless.

    • Checking back, all I see is mindless "12 year old keyboard warriors" who done exactly what I expected, people who support the idea and a good point made by SWAGER21.

      thanks, your lack of thought before publishing your opinion makes me laugh

      I'm sure you haven't read the long paragraph explaining why I think it's overpowered, and the facts about the weapon itself. If you're reading this then go back and re-read the new disclaimer I edited it to have.

      I think you should read what I changed the stats to, I wanted the M249 to be as balanced as possible and not as nerfed into the ground as possible. After posting this comment I suggest you read the version that I edited in response to your "feedback" I suggested that the range would be a step under the R700 and the accuracy be 140. With these changes I think M249 is closer to an actual machine gun than an automatic 55 round R700.

      When I see people talking about the long reload times I didn't suggest the M249 have higher or lower reload times, I think the reload time is a perfect balance for the firepower you're getting in a single box. Addressing the slow down factor when wielding the weapon I think it's not part of the M249 changes, the people can't accept that they are carrying a 22 pound machine gun and not an 8 pound assault rifle and the M249 is not supposed to be part of a run and gun role but part of a support type role. Finally, the high rank, so far I think this is the stupidest thing use to defend the M249. It doesn't matter about the rank at all, the rank only serves as a wall preventing low ranked players from getting it. 

      The rank and cost of the M249 doesn't matter if you already have it, only the stats.

      we payed 85k for that very good reason


      now people are complaining that its too op even tho its an END GAME WEAPON yea just wait till they get it and realise


      it wont suffer the same fate as the spas 12 since the spas really deserved those nerfs cuz its a shotgun


      with all those cons about it including the 5 sec reload, slowed down walkspeed, and the slow ass firerate makes it balanced as it is


      if u wanna nerf the m249 nerf the range to like idk maybe 150? dont nerf the accuracy cuz its already inaccurate if u dont ads. idk about the dmg tho

    • He's angry at "12 year old keyboard warriors" boys, we got him!

      Basically above.

      For some reason, you chose to neglect the MASSIVE DOWNSIDES included with the M249 - no sprinting, Brute movement speed, very long reload. Essentially, facing Diggers can mean you can't shoot for like fifteen seconds. (Two stuns that cancel the reload). Along with this, you're virtually a sitting duck for long-range Brute clubs, and also decently weak against Fire Elementals. Furthermore, Leapers and Edgars can also cancel your reload, which is, again, five seconds long. 

      Sure, the M249 outputs A MASSIVE amount of damage, but it's justified by the debuffs and weaknesses to long-range that it brings.

      Seriously, I've killed like five M249 users with Brute clubs simply because they're so slow. 

      The only place where it's pretty stupid is FFA. Against zombies, however, it's balanced.

      The rank and the cost does matter as it limits its use. The rank, the cost, and no gamepass for the weapon is why only a small few have it.  The majority of servers I go to, no one has it as the majority of people in my servers are rank 10 and below. No way are any of those guys going to go from rank 10 to 25 in a week. A majority of the time, i'm the only prestige in the server. If im not, then it is usually one other prestige in the server.

    • Basically you guys want a non balanced op weapon just like when spas got nerfed people were complaining "omggggggg spas not op anymoaffrrrrrrrrr" it's not supposed to be op. PR will nerf it and all the weapons will be balanced once more

      But there is multiple things that balance it

      -Slow walkspeed makes it easy mobs to trip you and makes you an easy target for brute clubs

      -A digger can easily flank a M249 user 

      -There is a long 6 sec reload which makes you reliant on team support for cover. If you have a bad team that dies quick then it is better to use the Spas-12 or AK-47. Many prestiges I see still use the Spas-12 and AK-47 over the M249.

      -An Elec Elm can constantly zap you to keep you from reloading.

      -Ammo giving armors makes you vulnerable to fire elms. 

      -The rank, the cost, and no gamepass is why i'm usually the only one in the server with it. 

      -Snipers counter M249 user in TDM and FFA


      I could make an argument that it balances out the charged brute as survivors have a weapon with a high dps, besides the minigun, that can kill the charged brute. Minigun isn't ever really used in Survival due to its limited ammo. M249 can be useful in survival as it is refillable. The Minigun would outclass it in shorter gamemodes, as it has a dps twice as high, like Rescue and President.

    • It needs an increased switch to- and switch from time. Right now the walkspeed nerf doesn't mean anything because you can switch to a melee weapon. This way it won't "lose" any direct power, but will make it more of a "stationary powerhouse".  

      Also, just because it's a "high rank" weapon doesn't mean it should be nerfed. The FAMAS was a high ranking weapon but ruined R2D. Also, balacing it in FFA and TDM is not real balancing.

      Barret was only OP in TDM and received a debuff for that mode. I think that should be possible for the M249 too.

      Further speed debuff would perhaps be the most fitting.

      hackers caused this gun to go hated due to amount of fake generals

      It also was a gun that had pretty much the exact same dps and fire rate of the minigun with none of the drawbacks of the minigun. M249 has a third of the fire rate, half the dps, slow walk speed and the long reload of the minigun. You can't compare the M249 to the Famas. People on here like to seriously exaggerate the Famas. It wasn't what ruined R2D. The player count of R2D was still high on its release and after. It was excessive tank buying with no tank limit that killed R2D. The player count started to plummet as you couldn't get out of the spawn of maps like "Buried Alive" without getting killed by a thrown rock. Survivors began to just camp at the spawn of "Buried Alive" instead of trying to get out. People with guns like the M1 Garand and Pistol could not thrive so they quickly stopped playing the game. There was also a glitch in the game that PR took forever to fix where all the Tanks you bought were free. It eventually became where every single zombie you fought was a Tank. Famas use quickly died off because a Tank would come up and kill you whenever you tried to reload at bench as you couldn't move while reloading at one. Anti-Tank loadouts like the China Lake with MP5 became common. Tank buying is what killed R2D. That is why there is a Brute limit of one in R2DA, the Brute is twice the price of the Tank, and the Tank is not in R2DA.
