Why do people hate the bfg so much?
By - guest169420
It isn't the BFG, it's the BFG users.
Prebuying the BFG is pretty much an admission to yourself and the whole lobby that you don't want to put effort into being good with literally any other sniper in the entire game. The niche role of the BFG is that it's a low rank gun that can 1sk to the torso. With it's long reload time, slow walk speed, and poor handling, it's objectively the worst sniper in the entire game, so what other reason would you put any effort into using it if you weren't going to use it as a crutch for cheap body shots.
All the hate for the BFG gets shifted from the users to the BFG because without the gun there wouldn't be BFG users to hate.
Rant is for serious players at least. The BFG is absolutely a fun gun to use, but it forms bad sniping habits and can set you back a ways with all of the better snipers skill wise.
If you have fun using it, power to you. Have fun the way you want to have fun. Yeah people are gonna complain (me) but who really cares?
If you put a chainsaw grip on it, it goes from a crutch for snipers to an incredibly powerful 1 shot slug shotgun (or normal shotgun if you put dustshot on it :P )
Facts. I make mine better with .17 wildcat and the 👌👍 sight to turn it into the most useless gun lol
can amt term work with it? I only am rank 15 5k xp away from 16
Chainsaw works a lil different from the amt sight.
The amtt lets you hipfire while aiming, so slightly zooming in, but the chainsaw grip just basically disables right click and you cant use a scope on it if you have one.
Amt terminator can work with it
can u still right click aim
That’s right, be scared every time you turn a corner.
I just might be there.
you plague my nightmares
You make some very good points, specifically the point about the BFG filling the niche role of a low-rank weapon that can 1sk torso. The M107 is objectively the more annoying weapon to combat against (like the BFG with 5 rounds), but you don't see the M107 as much is because it's a higher level gun, meaning that it's more expensive so more lower-rank players gravitate towards the BFG. Therefore, I think the biggest complaint for many players is just how many people have it and use it.
Absolutely. While I think comparing the BFG to the M107 is a bit of a *long shot* ;;) between the 3 .50 snipers, people that don't want to/don't care about headshots will gravitate towards whatever fills that niche. If the BFG wasn't in the game, we'd see a lot more players using the Hecate, and if no Hecate, a lot more M107 users.
I like all of them, but I don't think a lot of people buying the BFG realize how powerful the Intervention is, especially after it was buffed a few years ago. Probably have more kills on it than all my .50 snipers combined.
Yeah especially with attachments like S. Bolt Pull that make the Intervention and other non-.50 snipers great.
Hear me out
Bolt pull+qcb barrel
As you said, with the BFGs lethargic handling, reload, and walk speed, it’s already a pretty low end gun, but, if you put m903 slap on it, it becomes a skill cannon. Long reload, lethargic handling, slow walk speed, no one shot to the torso or limb at any range, while only one shot killing to the head. In my opinion at least, I’d say that makes it a skill cannon (feel free to insult me if you strongly disagree)
No, you're right. Even better though, slap gives it a really interesting play style. The increased penetration distance means as long as people on your team are spotting, you can stay very well hidden and shoot spotted people through entire buildings. That takes some skill.
How do you have a gun under your name
Look up how to change your user flair :)
Is it bad that i gimmick the hell out of the bfg instead of normally using it and have 1k kills on it because of that?
Nahhh. I haven't actually put effort into hitting anything with it in years. Don't have 1k kills, but sounds like an interesting way to get it.
What i usually do is put a pka, remove stock, and caebine barrel on it for the ultimate quickscope experience or if im feeling extra gimmicky i put 2 tri lasers, long barrel, mars and slap rounds and become the laser man
I might have to try those lol. My go-to for a while was the jumbo flashlight. Remove stock, flashlight, and maglite
I may have seen you in a match with that then
Why do you complain? It doesn't hurt your experience at all. Some people are impatient and prebuy.
It does hurt my experience though. I think it makes the game less interesting, and as a result less fun. My issue isn't with pre-buying in general as much as it is pre-buying the BFG specifically. Pre-buy whatever you want, you'll just look worse buying some guns over others.
cope and seethe
That's the plan
i though the dragunov svu was the worst sniper to use but even then a fun one
Prebuyers cant hit anything so im actually ok with them, ez xp. But the only 2 types of players i actually hate are actually op weapon users, like rank 200s still using m107 and aa12 because they never knew how to play, but people still call them “pro”. And cheaters.
Ironically, I spammed aa12 back then
5k isn't enough to compare it to other snipers I myself have 23k on the intervention and 20k on the Remington 700 both BFG is basically useless when comparing the three snipers together.
Yeah so you are proving its not overpowered. But yet these little rank 50s raging at bfg “noobs” who destroy them.
It's more or less annoying to just get sent straight to the menu screen after dying to it. To be frank 50 cals aren't really worth using non of the snipers are with the scope sway still being a thing in fact.
huh just get sent to the menu aint that bad i constantly get sented there because of my high ping its more annoying to be on a rampage just so that a guy that was the other side of the map kill you without taking any risks
So basically what you're saying is you have no life
It's not that I'm a no life at all. I've been playing PF since 2016. People have more kills than me on every gun. Just look at the CEO's.
Oh, sorry. I have a friend that just plays pf all day all night, was sorta forgetting people actually play normally
20k bruhhhhh go outside man, I've been playing pf for 3 years and haven't had more than 5k kills on any one gun
That'll be because you use multiple different weapons and swap rapidly, you most likely would have around 20k too on some weapons you like
yeah but prior to that Scope sway wasn't a thing making sniping a lot more enjoyable and not as frustrating as it is now.
I've been playing PF since 2016 when snipers were good and scope sway wasn't a thing so I mained snipers you wont see people maining snipers now a days sad really
grrrrrr tube 50 cal that can limb kill to 150 stud make me angry!!!! gr....... must hate.
in all seriousness, i'd bet because the bfg is literally the most prebought gun ever, and that most people who use it dont hit headshots because it's a 50 cal, it'll kill if you just shoot the torso anyway
it can only limb kill to 50 studs
guess im stupid then
youre not. guy said limb kill. the torso is not a limb
No, it can torso kill all ranges tho.
I use it but still only go for headshots because im too lazy to actively put effort into measuring drop distance
people hate it because it gets annoying when you die to the same gun over and over again, which is also why people hate the mg42 so much
it's also because the average bfg main seems to think it's the most op gun in the game 'bEcAUsE 100 daMaGe!!!1!' and doesn't accept the fact that it sucks
if it sucks, then why do people get killed by it over and over again?
because it's easy to use but not very effective
I never said you can't kill people with it
m107 and Hecate II are worse, aa12 at least needs you to move a bit, those snipers were made for camping
I kinda disagree with the aa-12 part you can still shit on people without moving
well you're not on a crane where almost nothing can reach you
Well you can shit on ppl without moving UNLESS youre not that type of bitch to corner camp ontop of a crate
I agree with ur original statement but on the crane once u kill someone on the enemy team or someone spots u ur done for.
Not a crane but a crate in a corner where some whiny bitch camps ontop of it on prone with a shotgun making it hard for you to clear that spot youre trying to push
I hate the M107. Worst gun in the game. I have never used it nor prebought it. Stupid gun.
Unsure if this is sarcasm or not considering your user flair
It is sarcasm. I like it because of the actual m82 irl, it's just a good looking gun
M107 is such a ass gun, hecate on the other hand....
.... is an ass gun.
People despise the BFG for many reasons, one reason is that the gun is very popular and many people has pre-bought it. I myself as well pre-bought the weapon when it first came out. It's a one shot kill to the torso in a certain range which makes the gun really annoying. Some people think that the BFG is a such a horrible crutch weapon, they think that the gun is actual garbage and I agree upon that statement. The BFG in my opinion is really garbage, sure it does one shot in a certain range but you only have one bullet. If you miss that one bullet and you have no cover. You're most likely dead by the time you can get the reload off just to shoot another bullet.
Well get in cover then lmao
all 50s 1sk torso at ALL ranges
Above 400-500 studs no
damage only drops off so far, and with a 1.5x torso multi it’s still always going to be 1 shot
Yeah...thats how snipers work?
so then why wouldn’t it 1sk torso past 500 studs?
Because damage falloff?
It's just a shit gun tbf
if it’s trash then why do people hate on it?
Because they're dumb
we have reached peak argument
i use the bfg to rush, idk why, guess my codm instincts always makes me go rush with a sniper quickscope
If it doesn't spam 6-10 shots down range its not good enough for them.
The BFG isn’t even a good gun. I have killed more BFG users with a stock AWS with zpoint than they have killed me
it isn't a good gun, it's just annoying
Probably because of the extremely low skill floor (no headshots required) and the amount of rank 20's who buy it, but tbh a lot of them are noobs and if you're halfway decent at quickscoping you'll be able to counter them
Hence my usage of a mosin nagant with loudener, shortened barrel, and a bunch of other mobility increasing setups lol
What does loudener do?
It increases the volume of your gunshots (basically a meme suppressor which does the opposite thing of a suppressor)
Wouldnt it be bad cause the enemy could hear you more?
But I use it because meme setup
And rank 20's rage when you kill them with meme setups
Cons: More noise
Pros: Beats the piss out of rank 20’s
ayo u gunna reply
It’s a one shot to anything an any range, tryhards see you and you die it gives you no chance to fight back
I don't hate the gun, just the one who use it and be toxic to other players
So no one, because people just like using the gun. Let people have fun.
I don't play Roblox anymore but I am gonna say my opinion, I absolutely love it, yes I bought it and didn't grind it but it isn't as op just because it's one shot gun, takt the M107 it's a .50 cal but with a mag making it much better. But I do agree with the reasons to hate it
SFG 50: Bonjour
BFG 50 is just a one tap machine but that’s all it can do it’s reload is 3 seconds long with a magazine of one bullet it’s more repetitive than the story your grandpa with alzheimer’s tells you
Title , bfg hate , next aa-12 bruh
Yeah, hecate II is much better
Because I shot a hole into the surface of Mars and big robot man is angry with me
I just use it when I wanna turn off my brain and just farm some kills
its a crack pipe that one shots from more than a mile away, what else do i have to say
Bfg isnt tilting to me tryhard guns are tho
I dont mind bfg personally, i prebought it and put h&k sight, carbine barrel, chainsaw grip, remove stock and dustshot and now its just a tube with a trigger
People hate the BFG because it's practically the worst sniper, and everyone camps with it. Another thing is that level ~50 players buy the gun, because it has high damage values, and therefore it must be good, right? But then they only use it to camp and everyone hates them.
I feel like its only because of their rank and high ranked players getting destroyed by a bfg gets salty. However people dont hate the m107 because the user is supposed to be “experienced”. Making them satisfied with their death.
I might be offending a lot of rank 90-100s by saying this lol
bfg can be annoying in sniper duels. if youre fighting a bfg and you have one of the many sniper rifles that dont oneshot bodyshot at long range then you’re at a disadvantage
Cuz retarded 8 year olds thinking "1 shot torso all ranges is good!!111!1"
Edit: Its not even that good of a gun, sure it one taps to the torso all ranges but good luck getting a high kill game with this piece of shit
It’s rewards aiming for the body and not the head, so it’s much easier to just aim in the rough approximation of your enemy hit a shot and kill them instead of having to make an effort shooting at the head. Rewards bad habits.
It also has to do with people who use it. See a big number and buy it thinking it’s the best thing cause waow big bullet
It’s bad and people still think it’s good
For me i hate it becuz it doesnt deserve that much love cuz its probably one of the weakest sniper in the game. New players always prebuy bfg becuz its a 1 shot kill gun
Because of the amount of people who unironically think it's good
give me 1 reason why it isnt other than 1 bullet in chamber
16 rpm, 3+ second reload, the fucking TRG existing
haha, how did i know you would mention the reload time, what do you fucking want its a 1 shot sniper rifle, trg is far less powerful than bfg although it does get the job done
Damn bro how did you know I would mention *the core weaknesses of a gun*
because its the only argument people use
...because that's literally its weakness???
dont mean its bad, its cheap and 1 shots
First, The fact that is can one shot to the torso through 2 walls at over 500 studs is kinda the main reason. 2nd, yeah i know it only chambers one round but it only takes about the same time to chamber another round as it would to fully reload the intervention.
