Anybody get the golden uzi... getting headshots with all the Sub Machine Guns is going to take FOREVER. Any advice (besides "shoot them in the head").
I'm finishing up getting the Golden sniper (which is obviously the easiest). I start with the best weapon and work my way down (figuring my proficiency in that class of weapons will improve over time -- which will be needed to offset the poorer performing guns).
well i kept prestiging so i keep losing my weapon stats before i get gold guns, except this last time through when i got the m60e in gold (which is the easiest gun to get gold on IMO....only 3 guns in the class). i actually think getting the gold shotty would be the hardest...it seems random when you get headshots. sometimes i can be pointblank with those things in the back of someones head and it doesnt even give a headshot, then other times ill shoot someone in the leg and it will.
in my experience, the best way to get head shots with the subs have been using stopping power and bandolier. stopping power being essential...these guns take multiple shots even to the head to kill someone (i read it actually takes 2 bullets to the head for most guns besides snipes if the victim has full health). with these weapons equipped, obviously you are better suited for playing in close quater levels like shipment and vacant where you can round corners and be point blank in someones face. now the most important strategy i use with fully auto guns to get head shots is that when you are firing...move the gun back and forth horizontally at head level to the person you are shooting. your accuracy percentage will drop a bit, but you are more likely to kill someone with a head shot than if you were just popping off a few rounds directly at their head...missing...and then them killing you in return. i let the bullets fly and mow back and forth until i hear the "dink" of their helmet, i run out of ammo, or they kill me.
if you want to stay alive for any extended amount of time, the bandolier perk is well spent on this weapon class...seeing as staying alive/ killing more than one person per life is important to me. with the uzis you can burn a whole clip in like 1 second and if there is a second guy you are dead...bandolier gives you enough to at least smoke 2 guys
