M4A1-s: Less bullets
M4A4: More bullets
M4A1-s: Slower fire rate
M4A4: Faster fire rate
That makes CT economy better so who cars
it's not even a choice anymore
it was pretty balanced, but now it's a no-brainer to use the silenced one
if you still use M4A4 you have no brain
Yupp, m4a1-s definitely needs another update because now it's basically back to its old OP state that it was in before the very first nerf came many years ago.
Benefits of a4 -> spray transferring is just better with it.
I think valve need to make a1s 20 bullets and have both guns be 2900. This is good fix i think.
it wasn't balanced, if it was why were so many using the m4.
I think it is dificult to balance this 2 weapons. Maybe remove 1 lol.
a1s - right click = die
a4 - right click = nothing
ah yes the armchair experts are here to fix the game
Maybe they should up the price of the a1-s to equal the m4
But idk it seems ok so far to me, people who prefer M4 definitely aren't super disadvantaged
If you know the M4 pattern then a dual between the two probably favours the M4
Tap accuracy obviously much better for a1-s
Bullets definitely need to stay as is, upping or lowering either will be super overpowered/underpowered
a1-s definitely better for just straight killing enemies
m4 a lot more versatile, good for spraying down 2 or more enemies or through smokes, 5 extra bullets can mean a lot in a clutch or when trying to hold a bombsite
this is probably what they're going for
price balance might not be a bad idea though in my mind
Why tf valve can't find a nice middle ground, they either overbuff(a1s) or overnerf(sg)
Valve get your act together
I like the idea of giving the A1-S a 20 bullet mag again. Making them both the same price. And letting you buy both. What are the issues with this?
M4A1-s also more accurate which makes it now stronger overall
Why are people bitching? I don't get it. We finally have something nice for the CT.
A1 is still worse than AK so it's balanced.
A1s bullets / mag could be dropped to 20 and the 5 bullets / mag we'd lose should be put to the reserve. After that they should just allow you to buy both the A1 and the A4 at the same time. They'd both have their pros and cons + a teammate could be dropped the M4 they prefer instead of the one you have equipped.
A4 better because my friend use it (he is 6lvl so no jokes here)
I'll always go for M4A4
It just feels more satisfying to use
M4A4 - for men
M4A1-s - for women
Just buff A4 to 2900 and AUG to 3100
m4 more bullets
m4 faster firerate
m4 more damage on hs
so when u hit at least 1 hs while spraying the m4 is much better
just learn aim insted of waste the time od creating these threads and crying
delete this information sir
How to balance both imo:
M4A4: $2900 (only change the price)
M4A1-S: $3100 and 30 bullets (change price and bullets)
This way M4A1-S is clearly better, but $200 more expensive while also being in a pretty useful position
Who says a4 has to be the better one? I'm glad A1-S is better now
99 in 4 hits is pain in the ass
today, m4a1-s is better imo
They have it a lot of small buffs to try and make it balanced, noone switched and with this damage buff that would have been enough on its own, its better in almokat everyone way
M4A1-S is better now but i think the M4A4 should cost as much as M4A1-S
The M4A4 is marginally better at close range and always better with a dink.
I will say this they should 100% be the same price again but if anything both rifles should be 2900 or even go down to 2700 the CT economy has been gut punched over the last two/three years. If they are going to keep the prices different and make the A1 more then they need to just add a slot for each weapon. It's always been stupid that you have to pick one or the other going into matches and as far as I can tell there's no rhyme or reason to it.
Overall though even if we are just entering an M4a1 CT meta for a while I'm totally fine with that. It's good to have the game shook up every now and then. The AK is still the better rifle which it does need to be considering how the game works. It's not game-changing like the AUG at the height of it's power.
m4a1-s needs ammo nerf back down to 50, and then switch up the prices. I think they should be like the usp p2000, granted the p2000 needs a buff desperately.
I mean the a1 was so bad for so long, it's about time it came back in the spotlight
