    Well 1 shot is an instant, guaranteed kill. Plus, you can strafe while zoomed in and the recoil won't matter.

    Just zoom in, aim at zombie balls and fire away. It will kill them anyway with 1 shot.

    You didn't mention that 1 HR bullet has the ability to take out 4 zombies if they are lined up properly.

    I want to share something. For the life of me, I haven't been able to remember the name of a particular actor who I think would be a perfect Bill. Well, today I stumbled across a movie he was in and got his name.

    He's younger than Bill, but getting older. He's been in plenty of action movies. With a little imagination I think you would agree, hes perfect. If you care or not is another story....

    I give you:

    Dude just fits and it's been tearing me apart that I had no idea what his name was

    There you go. Sharing done. Enjoy the laugh.

    The problem with "zoom" scoping in close range is that you suddenly have no idea what is going on right next to you. Sure, your team can call out things but you still have to find them before dealing with the problem. A shotgun or ak doesn't have that problem.

    I once hung around at the bell tower in Death Toll while the whole team went ahead without me. When the tank showed up on the street just past the bus the rest of the team got incapped and I killed the tank solo with my hunting rifle from the tower.

    yes, but how often does that actually happen? not to mention you might have saved them all from being incapped had you been on the street with them.

    I mean, the hunting rifle can be used properly and successfully, i just find that the other two weapons cover close range and long range just fine without having to sacrifice what you do with the HR.

    Granted, the AK and shotty very nearly do the same thing (ripping limbs off and such)

    There's no advantage whatsoever to using the hunting rifle at close range instead of an autoshotty. You can't be moving while firing or the bullets practically go sideways. That is a serious problem. It's useful to have one in Campaign because it's great at picking off zombies at a distance which is how you survive Expert. It sucks balls in Versus where moving fast all the time is the name of the game. If you want to be able to shoot stuff far away, the assault rifle is plenty good at that.

    IMHO they should just buff the hunting rifle's accuracy in Versus. Make it so the moment you let go of a direction it's accurate.

    Well you could always be unscoped, but I agree, at very close range auto or AR is ideal.

    Anything mid-range to long, HR is good to take out smokers and boomers really fast from a distance, also a huge row of horde.

    I guess it's all preference to be honest. I like the pump shotgun out of all the guns.

    And if you are so ardently concerned about not reviving the issue, perhaps you should have kept your mouth shut just now? You are the one that doesn't want to discuss it, so one might imagine there's an onus to not discuss it lying on your shoulders.

    I'm not "ardently concerned" about it. Theres been no more new information, so its the same things said different ways ad infinitum. Multiple people (each time its brought back up) expressed the discussion is stale, and besides a single comment it was left on a previous page.

    I think the approach is different this go, in so much as they have stressed a stronger narrative with the survivors, including characters arcs across the four campaigns. So my guess is that for as much as they've told us, it sounds like there's tons in store for them yet.

    Besides which, how much do we really know about these guys apart from their backgrounds? I mean we knew that back before L4D1 as well, Zoey was a college student who watched zombie movies instead of studying, Louis worked at an Electronics store, Francis was a biker and Bill was a war veteran.

    It's not like they've spoiled any running jokes they might have, like Bill's dislike of Francis, or Francis' hatred of everything.
