Got inspired by this guy to give it a shot:

Not bad after just one round, would probably have hit 40% if I didn't mag dump on someone who scared the shit out of me when he came through a door. As for the playstyle itself, it fucking works. Suppression's still just as much of a bitch, but it's amazing to never run out of bullets.

No matter how many times I try to just fire enough bullets to kill I always wind up dying to people I leave on <10%

There's no way people drop that quickly for me.

He died a few times because he was hesitant on shooting as he wanted to shoot "conservatively" 2:50 is a prime example

He could've easily buttpumped both those guys and rezed his mate before any1 would've noticed :O

Edit:
Could be useful though as long as you don't go overboard with the conservation business and workout your shot/kill.

It was actually quite weird, as soon as I started shooting like that intentionally the enemies went down exactly as in the video.

Part of it was me trying to avoid direct confrontations (excluding waiting for enemies to charge around corners) which meant I'd always be able to chuck in the last bullet if needed, but that was rarely needed anyway.

Second attempt wasn't quite as good, dropped a couple of percent due to an obscene number of kills being stolen:

EDIT: Oh and for reference, here are the guy's stats (http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/en/soldier/6kNtoucH-jikA/stats/782332088/). I agree with you Rices, a lot of the stuff he does is stupid and I fell for the same things a lot, but if I can get the right balance here it'll be a lot more effective than my old style of "send 15 bullets and enough should hit".

Looks like hes using a macro, but I honestly don't know.
Actually, just looks like hes had allot of practice doing it

Also, DAT AVG WEAPON ACCURACY 51.5%
Fuck me

It probably helps that old mate is blatantly aimbotting.

Ya reckon?
He seems to be getting away with it playing in ESL

I will agree, he isn't legit.

Although I did just try it and got banned within 5 minutes.

I don't think he is using any damage modifiers, but watching his target tracking and acquisition, he is BS. His technique might work sometimes (scarily well) but he's got a fair bit of assistance there imo.

This is how I used to play BC2 (with MG3 and MG36)

Ignores players 2m away shooting at him to hit someone who's peeking at a container 30m away lol.

But regardless it seems to work ok when I can muster the concentration and restraint to not just dump on someone who needs to die.

bits like 3:50 LOOK suss but I wouldn't say he's hacking
