SA58 Para guide

Just thought I'd post this, as this: http://www.fanup.com/alliance-valiant-arms-ava/guide/sa58-para-guide person has NO IDEA about what he's talking about.

First of all, lets look at the REAL pros and cons
The pros and cons of this gun:
Pros
High damage
High dps (damage per second)
Can wall bang
1 shot headshot med-long range (With range barrel)
More than enough ammo needed for a kill (usually 3/4 shots for a kill and it has 25. 25/3 = 8.something)
Extremely high fire rate compared to what the stats say

Cons
Very high recoil
Very high bloom
Recieved a decent amount of nerfs.

Second of all: The mods
There is basically only 3 sets of mods that should be used.

1) If you can't control the recoil you should go for Spetz Barrel and Recoil Control Stock
2) If you usually play CQB go for Reinforced Barrel, Ergonomic Grip and Recoil Control Stock. Since you're going CQB, the RCS isn't needed, as it widens the bloom but decreases the recoil.
3) The one I personally use, and I love it, is: Long Range Barrel, Ergonomic Grip and Recoil Control Stock. The thing about this mod is, there is no ROF penalties, long range headshots, recoil isn't THAT bad, and it's easy to tap. If you don't tap it might be a little hard tho.

DON'T USE THE MODS I'VE LISTED. Make your own mods. Take some inspiration, and then start fine tuning them until you love them and feel comfortable. It won't be that hard, as you can try them in a 3 Box match, so you'll get your mods for "free".

3rd: How to use it.

First of all, you have to keep your sensitivity low. What this does is, it'll allow you to aim more precise for long range shots, which is kinda where the SA58 Para shines the most.

ALWAYS AIM FOR THE HEAD. If you miss your first shot, DON'T PANIC. One lucky shot to the head, and they'll most likely die, and 2 will kill them NO MATTER WHAT.
Whenever you can, CROUCH. This will decrease the bloom and recoil giving you better control of your weapon, and making it easier for you to pop those heads. Yes, it might make you more of a sitting duck, but if you land 2-3 shots before your enemy, you're the one that is going to end up with the kill. If you just try and moveshot them, chances are that you're going to be the one that is getting killed.
Using EG08 Gloves will help a lot when you're on the run. It increases the accuracy for the first couple of shots, which would possible be the one that WOULD'VE made a headshot. I have tried getting killed because my bullet went right past his head... Because I didn't have my gloves on.

Zooming in at relatively long ranges help. It makes the bloom a little lower, but the recoil is about 50% higher. Make sure you tap, and do it nice and slowly so you don't accidently burst it.

A tactic I use is, JUMP around a corner, spraying, then going down to crouch. Why do I do this? They expect you to stand up and run a long. Sometimes they get lucky and headshot you midair tho, so don't do it unless you're really confident.

If you get in a fight with another player, and you run out of ammo, DON'T RELOAD AND GO BACK. Find a new spot where he won't expect you to come from, so you'll have the upper hand once again...

Anyways these are some quite BASIC tips I've made, so please leave some constructive criticism, as this is my first real guide.

Tiny, nice guide! Better than Bonsly's --" He obviously doesn't play any A.V.A./used Para and his guide is totally based of stats and picking it up once in 1-10 channel from some gcoiner... This one deserves my fan! Al though, make your own mods, that wasn't the best sentence ever on SA58, also tell them what mods NOT to use and why, for example, don't use the trigger because.... but do use it because.....
