What weapons are functionally similar to the STAR?

Recommended Posts

Yes yes I know don't buy the ARMAS marketplace weapons. But what weapons are functionally similar to it? I really love the gun but I'm not an NTEC fan.

No reskins exist of the STAR. Similar are N-TEC and FAR.

The most similar to the star is the FAR.

 

Similar/same recoil

same accuracy stats aside from a .5 difference in mm/out of mm accuracy. aka

same bloom

same bloom recovery

should be the same movement speed

 

the only major difference is the .7 vs .75ttk, faster reload and smaller mag compared to the star. It's pretty much functionally identical otherwise.

And the most important thing; it doesn't sound like an awful wet noodle every shot.

Far is the star with a higher fire-rate and more bloom (the nerf pretty much killed this weapon's use)

I completely forgot the FAR got a max bloom nerf, and already had slightly higher max bloom. interesting.

To each their own subjective opinion. STAR sounds great to me. It's no DMR-AV of course, but that's not really fair to any other gun in the game.

Yep...can we get some bloom buffs now to weapons? Why does the FAR have to be shit, meanwhile the NTEC is king? Annoying is what it is. 

Can't tell a lie though, bought it only because it seemed like a strong weapon.

Nice try, Hex. You don't even know what it sounds like. Honestly, you're probably deaf from rigorous volcano use. So really, your opinion is far from relevant. 😉

LCR is a star variant SUPER good long range-medium range total shit in cqc 

the lower rate of fire is like an auto fire cr762 i think LO might sell the old glory during 4th of july other then that it's only gotten via joker tickets.

it's also a great support gun as it stays on target fairly well. like most good support non snipers a tagger sniper mixed with it can clear opps fairly well 

other then that your stuck with r&d III and the FAR versions

 

oh and people saying "dont buy market guns" are babies unhappy with LO alot of good guns on there no one uses like NORSEMAN

I use Norseman if not a lot, but certainly often. But it needs to be buffed still. At least make it 10stk or even better 9stk. 

Also, LCR is totally different from stock STAR, in fact, it's one of two  automatic sniper rifles in APB. 

Yes, it should be in ARMAS permanently, and i demand 3-slot version of it. LO should use some imagination for next loyalty rewards if they will arrive anytime soon 🙂

Oh, and btw, Obeya can shoot a lot faster than LCR, lol.

Far used to be really close to what i remember the star being, good hipfire and accuracy while pressing the trigger.

Other than that, i remember the atac was somewhat good feeling, but i think they changed how it worked ?

You can try the trials and see what lands imo

talking about cr 762 you know that scoped rifle made for long-medium ranges that like 70% of the pop uses because it's one of the last non watered down baby guns
