If you suck find a faster firing weapon. The TR Cycler TRV (medic and light assault) is mental fast firing, but wildly inaccurate at range. At point blank, however, nothing short of a MAX will live long enough to kill you back.|
People say shotguns are great if you have trouble getting kills in too, but I've not tried them myself.
But overall you get a lot more points getting stuck in at close range than sitting back and shooting - sniping is very difficult in this game unless you have upgrades and it also places you outside of potential support action points (repairs, heals, caps) where you get most of your certs from.
Long range shooting is only preferable, in my experience, when you're defending... but even then you're still missing out support actions from medicing people.
