The M4 and SCAR sucks compared to the ACR and M16. I maxed out the SCAR as I waited to get the M16. I'll tell you, that took a very long time. Even with a blinged out SCAR, I get my butt handed to me. Once I got the M16, I was rockin' pretty good. I was especially able to knock out my 40 FMJ kills with the M16 in no time unlike the SCAR. I like the ACR because of it's natural faster reload time and lack of recoil even during full trigger squeeze. Whenever I need to just rack up some kills quickly I can always fall back on my M16 to keep me on point.
Keep in mind I got myself up to major general on system link mode. So I spent a great deal of time with the different weapons available (at least the ones I could get with that rank). The M4 and SCAR very, very, quickly fell off into the background as I used some of the better weapons became available like the M16, WA2000, AUG HBAR, and Mini-Uzi.
I am also probably one of the few guys that watches 70%-80% of my Killcams. Nine times out ten, the guy who waxed me (when I was level 1 to whenever the AUG becomes available) had a much better gun that was not available to me despite both of us firing at the same time. (I accounted for lag as well, because he was taking damage on his screen from me while he was shooting me. Plus I knew hands down that the recoil of the raggedy SCAR/M4 didn't help one bit.)
