MP40 is NOT an overpowered gun

ive killed fools who were using the mp40 and they barely hit me. as is with every gun, it depends on how you use it. its not like the mp40 has some kind of poison bullet that when it wounds you you just die. if youre shooting someone through a wall or face-to-face, youre bound to kill him, but thats not always true

    I agree with you.  I do think that it has a bit to much hip fire accuracy, but it is in the game and therefor part of it.  I personally like the Carbine now.

    1 hit headshot with stopping power on core, what other gun dose that but bolt actions?

    If the OP is trying to say the MP40 is equivalent to the Thompson, Type 100, and Ppsh, I'm going to 1-star this thread...

    Oh wait, I already did.

    What are you talking about? You just said it's not an overpowered gun...?

    Again, why is it that you don't play core?

    its not an overpowered gun, but when combined with a perk that gives it X amount of damage more, then it becomes the ultimate weapon for noobtubes. i play on HC and it doesnt matter if u have juggernaut or whatever, if i shoot you , youre dead

    It's an overpowered gun because your average player weilding an MP40 w/ stopping power will typically **** a player of equivalent skill using a different SMG w/ stopping power. You play HC because it's an overpowered gun.

    It's also an overpowered gun because it ***** w/o stopping power.

    Ha your crazy then, because when I pick it up & use it, I'm almost untouchable with it. If you cant see the diffence between the mp40 & any other gun then you must be useing the mp40 all the time. Trust me, I hardly ever use it but when I do its an easy 7 kill streak.

    I'm pretty sure most people play hardcore because it is more fun.  All guns are on an equal field.  On any map a player can get raped by a bolt action, rifle, sub, shotty, or HMG.  There is a whole new world of possibility.  If someone went to play hardcore just because of one gun, then that person is in a sad state.

    Untouchable? lol doubt that

    BleachedWorm - I don't find hardcore more fun, I find very boring... full of people camping in a place all game...    Not as many people to kill, slower paced - i'm sure that why it is not as popular as core

    And on the larger maps the smg's get owned by rifles and bolt actions!!

    ha ha ha...
  • Re: MP40 is NOT an overpowered gun
    Yes it's in the game and yes it is powerful, not overpowered...just powerful, treyarch has already said many times it is the powerful gun of cod:waw, but that doesn't mean make the gun what it isn't. They tested guns out and made them accurate and that's just how it is.

  • Re: MP40 is NOT an overpowered gun
    MP40 IS over powered, i got shot in the chest once (one bullet) while I had full health and still died from it.
  • Re: MP40 is NOT an overpowered gun
    Look at the power Treyarch gave it though. . . it has the same power as the mosin nagant.
