Play style of a SAW.

Hey there,

My buddy and I are planning on getting two saw for some skimish/simple battle.

My question is, what kind of play style do saw user see?...

Like for example, I read some stuff about sniper's play style, it's fill with crawling on all 4, through mud, sometime worse...

Just give me a piece of your mind. Looking forward in hearing from you all!

SAW.. you mean the SAW Machine gun?

I think pretty much any gun can be a sniper in airsoft, since there's not much recoil, and with a bi-pod and scope u can do pretty well. But it would be kinda silly to snipe with a Machine gun.

But then again I have thoughts about building a UMP sniper version... hahah..

That's why airsoft is fun I guess, you can build and play it how u like. Just my 2 cents.

WTF were you reading? HE was wondering what the play style of a LMG'er was, not converting a SAW into a Sniper Rifle. Read it next time before you make comments.

And SAW gunners usually fill the squad support role, they provide covering fire to allow the rest of the squad to maneuver safely. Usually you will be following a squad and expending a fair bit of bb's.

Be warned SAW gunners can blow alot of money on ammo and frankly the start up cost for the actual AEG's in terms of those types of airsoft are higher (sometimes topping a grand just for the aeg).

Good luck and I hope this helps.

Ps. I suggest you hit up a local game and see what its all about and get age verified.

Cheers.

But thanks anyways...

They are not much fun to carry all day.

If no one around has one you don't really need one. If you're facing another team with SAWs thouigh they sure are handy to have.

PLUS. ONE.

And tell him to start working out, well... those sissy CA249 don't weigh any more than my M4, but my G&P 249 is a beast! You need to work out to carry it all day.
And I applaud anyone with a 15kg M60, those guys are hardcore....assuming they use it lol

Carrying it isn't going to be much of an issue, I consider it as working out

I know Ammo will be costly, but considering how much I shoot, I don't think it'll make much difference. Beside, I'm not planning on using high quality bbs.

Here's what I don't like to do, maybe you guys could guild me into fitting a better weapon category.

I hate to get on my belly(bug issue and allergy).
I enjoy shooting, keeping others head down. Cover fire you say? I'm on it!
Have gun's that's not common, like m4/m16s.... And I hate AKs...
I like defending a base, but I also enjoy staying near the back of the group(after eating a few bbs and catching a few on my cheek, no thank you!).

That's about it.

PS: why does saw cost so much more than a average AEG? Isn't a saw just like an AEG but with a drum mag?...

Bigger gun, more money, more shooting means you need better parts, means you HAVE to upgrade it.
As a 249 gunner:
1) I never go prone unless im on top of a hill
2) It's rare that I sit back and defend
3) It's rare that I sit back
4) I'm typically the one pushing the assault forward

Really depends on your squad tactics. An LMG can be a very static thing, or like in my case, it can be very mobile firepower.
However it's difficult to employ a static 249 without squad support.

My 249's fully upgraded minues a tightbore, shoots DAMN far, and I'm always on the front, and always racking up kills lol

That sounds like a ton of fun! It's not that I sit back all the time, it's more like, after a fire fight, we think they retreat, but not 100% sure. That's when I stay back, but when there is a fire fight, I stay up there and shoot like grabbing two hand full of bbs and throwing them out like a semi m203.

How much money did you put into that 249?. And what is it's range?

You should probably lend or borrow a M249 or other light machine gun to try out at the game and if it's working for you before invest on them.

I tried 3 time with 3 different SAW and none of them working for me.
