@Mainfold Shit, I fell asleep and forgot that I wanted to comment on this lol.
As a frequent Marksman in Cooperative games, a Mk 12 SPR sounds pretty awesome. It would make more sense I think to have that instead of the M16A4 in Coop modes. IIRC this gun is in Ring of Elysium, and I've used it in that game many times.
@Mainfold said in Suggest changing the SEC Marksman's M16 to a Mk12 SPR:
Reduce the cost to 2 supply
Shorter 20 round mag by default (can spend supply points for other mags at a +1 rate over normal M16's, so stanag-30 is 1, extended is 2, drum is 4)
Reduce muzzle velocity from 960m/s to 840m/s (from the 20" barrel reduction down to 18" barrel)
Give it AP rounds
Only magnified optics options
Default it has a muzzle break, so automatically gains some foregrip and compensator benefits
If you make this cost two supply and change it to only semi-automatic, you could then actually take the Advisor's SKS (it's not exactly "exotic") and give it to the Insurgent Marksman.
I don't really think a drum mag should be available lmao. I'd take 50 rounds of AP 5.56 any day (I do think AP rounds should come with it, though). I think it makes the most sense to just stick with a 30-round mag upgrade, similar to the SKS.
Reduced muzzle velocity would actually be nice so it doesn't outclass other weapons, and while I'm on the subject, the M24 needs a damn velocity buff. It's less than the EBR.
If this gun is added, I feel like 1x optics would also be included, but I am down for magnified optics only.
Not sure about a free compensator by default, unless it prohibits other barrel attachments (i.e. suppressors). The M4s have flash hiders by default but they don't function.

There is no reason why we have choices of two M16s.
Both the Security and Insurgent factions have their own M16 variant. You get both in Coop as Security because you get all Insurgent weapons.
