I have yet to have both to compare. I like 1 hit power and i like fast reload and fire rate.

My question is are the higher fire rates, reload speeds, and damage stats very much significant to make a real difference?
My choice would be the Bolt Action for faster over power. Slow loading can equal fast death.
However i would take the Springfield if the higher power of the Springfield is more noticeable than is the faster speed specs the Bolt Action has.
Actual in game performance of range and accuracy is not an issue here unless one suffers an accuracy/range bug.

I ask those questions because on paper specs do not always equal real game performance.

What do you need high power for? If it's for body shots, or shooting players in slow and steady III. Springfield is still better IMO. Just gonna need cover between shots. It's not a slow reload when I watched someone using it in showdown. It's like a second.

Reload speed on my springfield with maxed out affinity is faster than on my bolt action.

It's probably because your Bolt Action doesn't have maxed out affinity.

Nop, but because you‘re loading 5 bullets with Bolt action and not only 1 with springfield ;)

I can't really tell with accuracy and range but it's definitely apparent with reload time.

I understand that Springfield has 100 rounds. Same as Bolt Action.

 

And Sprinfield is one shot before reloading. Bolt Action is 5 shots in magazine, cocking between them.

 

What if the stats aren't wrong? The only way that the reload speed would make sense is if reload speed referred to character animation inserting the bullet. One bullet, not five.

 

So we shoot one bullet from Bolt Action and press B or O on PS4. That is reload speed. We're only comparing reloading animation for one bullet.

 

I guess we learnt something today.

Hmmm yeah... afaik Weapon Affinity doesn't affect how quickly our character operates a gun's action, but definitely does improve reload speed. Since reloading and recocking are essentially one and the same with the Springfield, and the time it takes to operate the bolt of the BA rifle is only slightly faster than the time it takes to reload a Springfield at initial Affinity, it stands to reason that a Springfield with maxed Affinity could have a faster RoF than a Bolt Action, even a Bolt Action also at max Affinity.

 

Interesting...
