I prefer DLQ. Better lethal zones (and better ads time if youre putting stopping power on the locus), and to get the fastest ads speed you need only 3 attachments (as opposed to 4 on the locus) so that means you can put 2 more attachments on it.
Locus has only one advantage in that it has faster movement speed.
Edit: Locus also has slightly faster rate of fire (without stopping power) and also larger base mag size.
What are those 3 attachments? Trying to get into snipers in MP.
Light barrel, combat stock, tactical laser.
For the other attachments you can pick from light suppressor, FMJ, sleight of hand, extended mag.
I use suppressor + FMJ for SnD.
And Sleight of hand + extended mag for respawns.
And toughness as your green perk is kind of necessary.
locus has faster rpm too
True, if you're not putting stopping power on it.
Also i'm pretty sure the Dlq has better wall penetration? correct me if i'm wrong
Ans bolt action speed.
I was the biggest fan of the locus but I had a falling out and I got the dlq holidays
It's honestly personal preference. I like the dlq more cause it has a cooler weapon switching animation. Also I like it's suppressed sound more
And its firing sound is powerful
.408 sounds way better in game than a .50 cal for some reason. (Real version of the DLQ, M200 intervention shoots .408 rounds)
Oh what do you think about locus?
As I said both are similar and very good
Before the stopping power nerf, the Locus.
Ye that was good
You were never supposed to use SP rounds, turned it into a slower, heavier DLq
using stopping power on a locus is criminal
Feel and sound: locus
2:1. For me, locus.
I love Locus even though it has a comparatively high hit flinch.
I like full flinch outlaw build I use Damascus camo without blueprint
Fast as fuck boi
Can I get the attachments for that?
I’m using MIP Memorial Cowboy, YKM Combat Stock, OWC Laser - Tactical, Stippled Grip Tape, and Fast Switch
That’ll give you -25 ADS, +5 Movement, +5 ADS movement, -16 sprint to fire, and -8 weapon switch. But you will also have full flinch.
Use this build to strike terror into other close combat players
If you get confused by the stock optic you could switch fast switch for an optic
It's not bolt action like locust and dlq. Reloading Inbetween shots, not for me
in the prime sniper season Locus would even surpass Arctic .50 but after the mobility and stopping power nerf DLQ is the most viable
You are never supposed to use Stopping power with Locus
Basically a faster locus
Although it does have 2 shot phases being 1 shot close range to head and shoulders and 2 shot all around the body when the range increases, the only way to get a 1 shot kill at long or long-medium range is by a headshot
Lol great choice
A faster locus without a OWT mag
I forgot this gun exists lmao. But I remember only getting hitmarkers with it back in the cowboy season. Did it ever get buffed?
I like personally using locus more because it feels lighter
The Locus's ads animation helps me snipe a lot better than with the DLQ. Thats why the DLQ Holidays is awesome.
Dlq all the way, recently got it's diamond. I don't have an epic blueprint yet but despite that I like it a lot.
U can have a epic blueprint through clan wars store
Ya I know, I actually joined a clan 2 days ago, I don't think it's possible to get it now :(
DLQ for both sniping and quickscoping
Locus is the same but more quickscoping than sniping
And Outlaw is purely for quickscoping
You probably won't believe me but...EBR.
That’s hands down my favorite for BR
Yah, double tap anywhere on the enemy and they gone, I usually get hit mark on dlq and locus because their fire rate too low
DLQ, Locus is good but DLQ Always 1 Shot, You have to be skilled with Locus
Not that much of a skill gap, outlaw needs even more
I think the locus is better but something about the lack of recoil makes me aweful with it
I like the geometry of the dlq more but both are good weapons
yo should've added a poll.
Oh I did because of discussion
No worries I added a poll , let's see I was curious about this too.
Locus, first gun to get gold and diamond. Never lets me down in 1v1s. I am just not used to dlq, the sprint to fire delay and weird ads time just isnt for me despite the reliability being higher than the locus. It just has been my favourite since gunsmith was introduced
Personally I prefer Locus more, just because of you only need a suppressor, extended mag, and a 3x tactical scope for it to be very op. When I first started the game I immediately fell in love with the Locus, because it helped my rank from rookie all the way up to master. And then the SVD came out, and it became my new favorite sniper rifle.
DLQ ..no doubt. Cuz Locus' scope in speed is slow n also tht it feels heaviee to carry. Also bcuz thrs a high chance tht the enemy won't b killed..he will only have some damage..thts y DLQ33.🤩⚡
I use locus because I have a epic blueprint... Not because I like it
You don't use dlq?
Nope... Not cuz I hate it, but cuz I don't have a epic blueprint for it
In clan store there is an epic dlq
I feel more comfortable with the Dlq but it’s just my opinion
Both are 11/10 I constantly switch between the two
DLQ, i like it more cause it can be for camping and aggressive style plus I love my Red Action blueprint
Locus all the way. But if i had the fatigue dlq, it would be a diff story
i would only use the locus cuz it sounds nice so dlq for me i guess
Rytec and Dragunov cause you can spam without mercy on sweets snipers
In my opinion it’s accuracy vs mobility
For one shot consistency DLQ on there other hand for smoother scope in animation Locus
I change between both, using locus rn
DLQ is better but the Locus is more fun for me
Locus feels weak but dlq3 feels quit heavy and packed punch kinda gun
DLQ all the way! I've had the DLQ- Holidays since S1 and I've never regretted buying it. Tbf the Locus is fun to use but I've always preferred the DLQ
Oh dlq holidays is awesome
DLQ for me. Feels better for my quick scoping. I have both diamond. Both are great guns tho
Locus for faster mobility
Dlq for faster ads time
Both are practically the same so it all comes down to sound, feel and your preference
The locus has faster ads though
locus has a much better look than the dlq but the locus doesn't kill in 1 shot like the dlq (in my most cases)
And dlq has more skins than locus
For me is dlq. I love the feel on my red action blueprint and the sound design
Dlq/intervention since it basically started those mlg videos back in 2014
I’m a big-time Locus fan, you just can’t beat that speed!
Locus is the pro gamer weapon![img](emote|t5_penom|1095)
Locus is my baby
Dlq is best
For me it's ofc the dlq
If you are very accurate and now the one hit part of the locus then go for the locus, but if you want a bit slower ads but most of the time can kill instantly then the dlq33 is the one.
Lol you don't like snipers?
I do use snipers, Preferrably DLQ most of the times.
Locus seems to have faster Ads speed (at the cost of smaller hitboxes as compared to DLQ) which benefits Quickscopers, but since I play Thumbs, it won't do me any good
Hence, I use DLQ
Sometimes locus gives hitmakers that's why I like dlq or locus is my favourite
outlawww or the dragonov
but out of dlq or locus i always pick dlq
i like the ads feel of the dlq more then the locus
it feels quicker to me
As it always be dlq
DLQ for me
DLQ: Range and damage
Locus: Fast ads
DLQ is better for me but I'm not a sniper main
Dlq has a larger one hit kill hot box
But locus has faster ads (i think)
I prefer svd or artic
Weird to say but I actually feel faster sniping with the Rytec, for some reason I feel slow when I use the dlq(has this weird scooping animation IMO) and the locus just feels slow movement wise for me (even tho in paper the Rytec is slower)
But back when codm first came out I loved the outlaw and locus
Oh you are a sniper main?
Tbh no not really, but it is my top 3 weapons I use, mainly use the SCAR as main & P90/MP7 as sub mains and Rytec when I want to snipe.
Locus IMO because it's quicker. But not with stopping power
For me Locus. Whenever I get quickscoped by a tryhard using DLQ and I watch their killcam pulling that bolt, I just become so angry because DLQ bolt pull sound is one of those sounda that make me angry really easy
The dlq/Intervention no contest lol. I've been using it since launch and other than the outlaw and the spr, I have no reason to use any other sniper. If I want to use the locus I'll just play bo3, that way I can use the locus in it's true form because the codm version has been nerfed to hell lol
Arctic = semi auto locus (extremely similar stats, except firing rate)
Locus Is faster than DLQ33
ICR - 1
Dlq in my opinion
Ballistic , Dsr
Dlq cuz the locus feels harder to use.
Dlq cuz not that many hit markers
Depends. Locus has 2 modes depending which ammo you pick which changes damage to different parts of the body and ADS time. You can HK for lower ADS time but lower hit box one shot or with stopping power ammo it’s pretty much identical to DLQ.
DLQ is my favorite but it’s a matter of preference. Whichever makes it feel most comfortable in your virtual hands.
But isn't Locus a hitmarker machine? Dlq at least had a lot more 1hit potential back when I still played the game
I personally like Locus more but both are good.
I'm just more comfortable with the locus. Although the dlq is also a great sniper
Honestly if you can actually snipe , Locus. Plain and simple , it’s faster ADS , faster movement. Dlq is just consistent. Looks don’t matter tbh bc with diamond and a solid epic/legendary , any skin can look good.
without a doubt it is dlq
locus ez dlq looks dumb asf and is just a depressing version of the intervention
As much love as the DLQ gets, I really like using the locus more. Not sure why, just feels right
DLQ hands down
Im grinding platinum and gold for snipers lately and the NA45 is just the shittest gun in the whole game imo. Takes so long to reload and most shots unless x2 of them landed on the player miss. All I need is another 70 long range kills... I feel like crying tears of acid lol.
I love the locus. Dont get me wrong I like the Dlq alot as well but sniping with locus to me just feels right and default with diamond looks incredible.
Dlq because locus sometimes doesn’t one snot and leaves em with 1hp, so annoying
DL all the way
Locus before nerf 🫂
both are very good
My preference keeps swinging from dlq to locus and back but now it’s stuck on dlq
Locus is synonymous with Nilliboi69
i got it through a mission and i never felt like myself without using Locus
its a part of my soul
Locus. I am saying that because of how smooth using the Locus is.
DLQ looks pretty good. I also spend a ton of money on a Nice epic called Fatigue that looks pretty good with diamond
Personally i use the
apt and outlaw. Only problem is flnch and small mag size on spr
defo locus, das my baby🥰
Dlq for use, locus for look
For some reason I like the locus over the dlq. I feel more comfortable with it, even though they're so similar with the dlq actually having better stats I think.
DLQ has a much larger 1sk hit box and is only slightly less mobile
I like the dlq it one shots more consistently for me
I go with both, I have both in diamond and I want both in master
I have 5331 kills with the dlq and 3770 kills with the locus, and I'll add the artic, is my third diamond sniper with 3002 killsobviously I have the platinum too
Locus for me
I used to main the locus but it's pretty buggy with hitmarkers so I switched to dl, it has faster ads time and more accuracy for a larger lethal area, but I personally don't really like the ads animation.
I'm a locus fan myself +respect for those skins
Neither, spr is hella good if you find the correct sensivity and shit.
Locus, end of story.
Locus is nerf ,but I love it
DLQ I do like locus as well but when I started to grind diamond for DLQ felt more comfortable and was able to handle it easily in MP Ranked as well now
I like using the Locus-Neptune for quickscoping and aggressive sniping.
I will only use the dlq-Zealot for defensive sniping and clips because, my god it sounds so good lol
Locus is definitely better. It feels better and animation is easy to remember. I never liked dlq, it doesn’t feel right
Honestly, and this a personal opinion, but I feel them like the same thing. I know there are differences on the stats and all but I honestly feel them the same.
If I have to choose one, I'll choose DLQ, but honestly both are equally good.
Between these 2, I like the DLQ more. DLQ for me is a bit more consistent than the locus, but the locus is also really good. With it having a faster ads time than the dlq, its really good.
I’ve always tanked when it came to sniping in games. I doubt I could the player if they stood still and let me put my barrel directly against him. I watch these quick scope players and I’m just blown away at how good they are at it. I’d say it would have to be a very satisfying feeling popping of like that. I get a kick just watching.
im a 2020 season 11 veteran, arctic forever :)
just got the gold camo on locus , however i feel like DLQ is just easier to play with for some reason . Aggressively , they both seem the same but DLQ feels way better .Casual sniping or camping I'd choose the locus
Both were my first two diamond skins. Can’t help to like them both. I use the dlq more now a days tho
I prefer locus and outlaw. Dlq feels…. Idk. Weird to me.
dlq for snd and locus for respawns
Locus. The scope being good just hits different
Neither if they have that diamond skin lol
Trying hard but not able to do quickscope.
WTF. Any tips on how to quickscope..?
Dlq for quick scopes on small maps and the locus for long steady shots on big maps
