Semi-auto Locked?

In the few games there has always been a larger limit for semi's to use and I wanted to ask:

how much of a difference this makes?

Are there any cons to using this compared to full auto weaponry especially in extended gun fights?

And since it isn't like you are using a bolt action rifle the higher fps doesn't put you at much of a disadvantage in terms of volume of firepower even though it is semi only.

I ask these questions because if it is that much better, wouldn't everyone do this to gain an advantage?

Oh also the reason that games specify for 450fps for these without them having any clear weaknesses(this would be due to my inexperience with this)

To simulate a DMR (dedicated marksman rifle) used by a dedicated marksman. Privilege of a higher FPS is given to people willing to simulate that role, meaning a longer/heavier rifle, and the aforementioned lack of full auto. Usually, DMs will not "spam" the trigger, but behave like snipers, trying to make their shot count. The dedication they put to the role is rewarded with a small increase in FPS)

That doesn't mean that you can take any rifle and push it past 400 fps in semi only (you technically could but that would defeat the whole DMR thing). Also, unless you use a nicely tuned AEG, the extra 50 fps will not benefit you.

A last thing. Usually, people that act as DMs will, just like snipers, not engage if too close to the target. Not with their rifle at least.

Keep in mind that DMR's shooting hot will usually have longer MED's (Minimum Engagement Distance).

Also, FPS isn't everything. The extra 50 FPS might be nice to have but if you're inaccurate (stock which might have a high FPS variance, compared to someone shooting consistently +/- 2 FPS) it doesn't make a difference. Also I forget what the "magic number" is but I believe after around 430 FPS the BB behaves under different rules of physics and can be more inaccurate (due to turbulence or something? the BB is moving too fast and turbulence affects it more or something like that).

Generally the unwritten rule is that the gun has to be a dmr platform in real life. I don't think a host would like you locking a mp5 on semi and running it as a dmr. Most dmrs are gonna be heavier and longer so its harder to maneuver. You also get a minimum engagement distance.

The point really is to conserve ammo firing semi only and act as a dm. Usually when I run my m14 I don't even finish off a mag unless its a long game.

The rule is retarded in most area's because I've never seen at least one guy NOT abuse it and just fire off rounds at 470fps as fast as they can squeeze the trigger lol
So in Mb and some other places, we have full and semi at 420fps, and bolt action only is limited to 470fps
There was some speculation of bringing the semi-auto limit back to 470 and I straight up told everyone if we're doing 470fps with 50ft MED, I'm modding my PTW to semi only, jacking it up to 470fps and using .36s. And that pretty well ended the movement lol

Problem is most people think the extra fps magically gives you more range, but you NEED to use heavier ammo to get the range. Amos and I built the exact same VSR-10, he had a longer barrel at 470fps and I had a shorter barrel at 430fps and both using .30s I actually had better accuracy at less fps.

This is why I run a gas DMR (sure its not as consistent) whats the point of designating someone a marksman if they have hundreds of rounds in one magazine
