M14 EBR: The extensive range and damage stats guide

Extensive testing to find the true range of the M14 EBR Rifle, done on all classes/ multiple armors
Extensive testing to find the true range of the M14 EBR Rifle, done on all classes, notably Rifleman with full defense skills. Note: Scoping in or out makes no difference in the range/damage of any shots on any armor. Since no map has combat distance of over 50 meters, 50 meters was the maximum range tested.

Thanks to iAndster and Pulse|KM| for spending some cash to test this with me, if any of you kind forumers have some spare gcoin epins, send some their way because they're both broke as Hard.

ALL TESTS PERFORMED WITH THE LONG RANGE BARREL. If you're not using it you're doing it wrong.

What we can conclude from these tests: The best kind of armor to protect from Large Caliber weapons -- such as sniper rifles, M14s, and SA58 Paras -- is armor that absorbs Large Caliber damage. This includes Large Caliber Armor [euro] and EA08 [available from capsules only], as well as Large Caliber Helmet [euro] and EH08 [euro].

-Against the M14, AA07 was nearly useless, only subtracting 2 meters from the 3-hit distance.
-The M14 1 hit headshots Rifle with standard helmet at the nearly the same distance it does snipers - 48m for rifle with standard helm, 49m for sniper.
-The M14 3 hits Snipers at a maximum range of 42 meters but pointmen at a maximum range of 33m.
-Arm shots do more damage than leg shots, with leg shots tanking 5+ past 20m.
-Interesting note: The SA58 para, unless modded with damage barrel has trouble 1hitting on EH08 helmets, the m14 does not despite 6 less stat damage. STATS LIE!

Here are two quick summaries of the tests showing the maximum 3 hit range of the M14 EBR on riflemen with various armors, and the maximum 1 hit headshot range on riflemen with various helmets.

3 Hit Chest Shots Max Range(Rifle)
Armor --------------- Effectiveness
EA08 --- ----------3 hit at 26m
Large Caliber Armor --3 hit at 28m
AA07 ------------3 hit at 30m
Supply Armor ------ 3 hit at 32m

1 Hit Headshots Max Range (Rifle)
Helmet ------------Effectiveness

EH08 -----------------1 hit at 22m
Large Caliber Helm ----1 hit at 28m
Anti-Charge/AH08 ----around 45m
Standard (default)-----1 hit at 48m

Arm shots: 3 from 0-10 meters, 4 at 11+ meters, 5 at 50 meters




If you made it this far, I hope you learned something from this. Thanks to iAndster and Pulse|KM| for being testers with me and wasting their last 5k for me. Love you guyyyssss!

Also if anyone wants to link this as an addon to mod guides/weapon compilation threads you're very welcome to do so, that's the whole point of this. Thanks very much!

err
48 meter headshots? Last time I logged its damage (week ago) best it could pull of was 37 meters on an unarmored sniper with no barrrel. Perhaps they changed it or something.

Also your sig is over the 200x700 limit, sorry to be a stickler >_>

If the Para's LRB improves its OHHS range by a couple meters, I doubt the M14's LRB will improve its OHHS range by 11 meters.

When I use the M14+LRB for the distance across AI Cannon mid (~40-45 meters) the M14 never OHHS on even the sniper, never mind the riflemen.

go try it on friend and report back. I find it hard to believe that the m14 would take a nerf.

I admit defeat X_X

On the para, the LRB increases its range by 8-10%. On the M14 it increase its range by 30-35%

lol that is messed up. I guess I'll use LRB from now on, thanks for the heads up.
