Struggling with Raptor 45 Vulture

Recommended Posts

I'm genuinely struggling with this gun, it's silenced and the accuracy is good but the damage is just poor to say the least. Any tips on what mods to use please?

I think this guns have weakness vs guns with more mobility.

hunting sight is the best option, which level depends on how much hipfire you want to sacrifice (for example i use hs3 because i almost never hipfire and it boosts marksmanship accuracy to a tolerable level)

 

i've seen people run cooling jacket on the raptor series for some discount oca action, but in my experience its just horrible and i'd rather use an oca

 

keep in mind that you're using a weapon that sacrifices overall effectiveness for exceptional ease of use, while you should basically always be mag dumping you probably won't win many straight face trades

But that's strange, I find that like firing it I get accuracy on the crosshair but my shots miss?

I prefer to not use any sight mods on this one, HS kills its advantage - hip fire accuracy. Try CJ or IR. 

IMO it must be 3-slot.

don't buy one. 

I'd use .45 / fbw or if some range needed the ACT 44 Golden Marksman

ACT GM is the best choice if you want a long range secondary, next one is Harbinger, however most of you disagree. RSA Hunter is fun sometimes, but not a good choice for a fast-paced fights (which is 98% of all fights in this game lol).

Personally,I like Pillager just because of the look and ability to put skin on it. 

Just IMO.

For the ARMAS / unlocked Raptors, there's a few different options that work. I personally recommend running Cooling Jacket 2, it's given me the most consistent performance across many sessions with the guns. For the legendary Raptor, the only correct option is Mobility Sling (as that's the entire reason it's so much better / more desirable than the ARMAS / unlocked ones).

I wish every silencer in game worked like Condor's one. Otherwise i can't see the point of it's existance\non existance on certain weapons.

Some stealth won't hurt for APB. 🙂

The silencer mods were introduced before tracers were disabled. Back then, tracers were a dead giveaway to your exact location, so hiding them gave you a pretty nice edge when shooting at people from mid to long range. Tracers will return with the engine upgrade, so silenced guns will get their strongest benefit back.

Thank you so much!

Okay listen but what's the point of having suppressors on weapons if enemies can instantly know where you are and there's damage indicators?

 

 It's like, trying to get one in on an unaware opponent is hard because the damage recognition is mad

we could just make silencers cosmetic mods that dont actually have any effects (besides different audio) and don't take up a slot

You are definitely in the minority with that opinion.

Perhaps.

Still, I'm hoping for the option to turn them off.

tracers can look good, some of the early rtw footage had proper looking tracers

but i think the tracers we ended up with not only look a whole lot worse, but it feels like the amount was increased and it adds way too much visual clutter imo
