The only weapon that violates both of these rules is the UMP45, which always does it's max damage, regardless of distance or attachments. A silenced UMP45 at long range is just as powerful as an unsilenced UMP45 at close range.
This would explain why when Kuzu was trying to tell me about his observations regarding silenced weapon distance shots, that I was all "Huh?". LOL. On my 'red' account, I'm a UMP whore. I <3 that gun & as the quote says, had been having no problems with picking people off.
Actually, up until a couple nights ago I had made it a point to NOT use the UMP so much on my 'hearts' account & was doing just fine without it. I went up against a pretty beastly player & had to bring it out of retirement, though. He got me on Favela, which pissed me off because I'm usually sharp on that map (but when the game ended, I noticed there were two players that went like 2-13 and shit...pretty sure he was making minced meat out of them). The next match I got him--Scrapyard & those two nubs had left before the start of the game. KAZAAM! Ended up he's a J-player & I buddied him up.
