MX(X) vs Katiba?

Recommended Posts

According to videos on Youtube, Katiba share almost the same damage formula with MX rifles, and has a higher ROF and better recoil control. It seems that Katiba is generally a better weapon in all aspects. Nonetheless, since Katiba does not have a marksman version, can I assume that MXM has better accuracy than Katiba?

PS: The rifle just looks ugly, it does need some remodelling.

Ugly? lol

Anyway, probably. You can check all these values directly in the editor, PREVIEW => Configsomething.

But someone will post them sooner or later below.

To me the Katiba looks as awful as the real life iranian Kh2002...

Here you have a photo of the real life one:

Rifle looks great, although I'm not happy about the sound, as it sounds pretty weak. As for the MXM vs the Katiba, I would assume the MXM has a higher accuracy due to it's longer barrel.

Actually, the bullpup format specifically has as one of its pluses more of the barrel length being "within" the body/receiver to cut down on overall length, so there's no telling for sure that the basic MX barrel is longer.

in my experience, the barrel length has no effect in ArmA. Typically the weapon model is irrelevant and the stats come from the rate of fire and calibre.

I prefer playing with anything OTHER than the MX series rifles primarily because of the recoil. The 5.56mm rifles kill just as well as the MX with its 6.5mm round ie. 1 to the head or multiple to the body.

MX = slightly more accurate over long distances

Katiba = higher rate of fire

Otherwise there's very little difference.

I prefer the MX because of its nicer iron sight and sensible rate of fire.

Accuracy depends on the config parameter called dispersion.

Sorry, what's the ROF?

Anyway I like everything of the rifle except the look.

Rate of fire. Usually measured rounds per minute.

To be precise, the dispersion entries that matter are within the fire mode subclasses.

Most people here use the JSRS soundmod, which is in heavy development.
