No it's not pay-to-win. all of the weapons in this game are side-grades and upgrade's cannot be purchased with real money.

Any idea why I get unplayable low fps on this, my spec should handle it no ploblem, I have tried the usual fixes it suggests involving pre rendered cores, lowering shadows etc etc, but even so I thought my rig should kill it at high ??

You've probably heard, but it's now DX11. That'll fix it!

It's worth a shot. But i doubt you can run the game on Intel HD Graphics with that CPU unless your willing to play on the lowest possible settings.

I'd say low settings, but also tone down the res to 720p. After all, its a competitive multiplayer game. You dont want to get beat down, just for good looking graphics :)

You can play this. But you need a good Internet connection. One with low ping and high speeds.

Yes you can. I am currently playing at pretty good framerates, however you should be able to push the graphics some more.

I try minimum settings and it still runs like arse (less than 15fps), even though this says I can run it at medium/high.

Yea the game is very poorly optimised, and VERY CPU intensive. I just dont think and APU has the power to run the game, due to the fact that it renders all other players at the same time. Putting immense pressure on your CPU

game-debate is not accurate XD I believe that medium won't be possible but if you you play on low it should be oke but it also depends on your resolution.

Yep, I ran the game for several months with potato graphics. You'll need to be playing at 720p, though, and the game will be hard. You won't be able to see bullet tracers or explosions. But I managed 170 score/minute and a 2.5 kill/death.
