I recommend whomever it is that updates these pages to follow the Nexon Korea statistics. They list their guns on their website with percentile rates for Damage, Portability, etc.
Rate of Fire: 74%
Recoil Control: 34%
It would provide a more accurate comparison value as opposed to personally tested numbers. Also, note that it lists it as Recoil Control, the amount of Recoil Dampening a gun has, as opposed to the amount of Recoil it has.
Nobody is sure if the people that make those statistics really did it correctly, or they just made up some random in-the-ballpark numbers to satisfy people and make them think they are so accurate. % don't work too well either for all categories. For damage it is good, but what is defined as 100% portability? 100% rate of fire? 100% accuracy? Unless it is rated on some logarithmic scale, I do not think the M16A3 has 80% accuracy, that's pretty bad.
And for recoil, I assess the recoil statistics in three separate categories as it should. Just one number for recoil is not specific enough. Recoil is not just a number, it is a pattern. The pattern can be described more accurately as a combination of "up", "side", and "everywhere", which apparently nobody does. 34% recoil, in what directions? compymasax 20:06, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
