Gun mobility and Treayarc logic?

SMGs and SG have 100% mobiliity. They are light and this makes sense.

 

AR have 95% mobility. Makes sense as well. They are more cumbersome than SMG and SG.

 

LMG have 90% mobility. They are big, so take a bigger mobility penalty.

 

Snipers have 100% mobility. This does not follow the logic employed in other gun classes-small, light guns have high mobility, with mobility reducing as size and weight of gun increase.

 

Why do you think snipers have 100% mobility, and LMGs only have 90%? Should sniper mobility be reduced or LMG mobility increased?

    Snipers are 95%

    They should actually have different mobility per sniper. The DSR and XPR are the heavy weights and the SVU and ballista are more the weight of AR's

    Sniper rifles can be very light for infantrymen to handle these days.  The SVU-AS weighs at around 4kg because it's a bullpup rifle.  LMGs are still heavy in comparison, although they have become lighter themselves over the years, and the mobility issue makes sense.  I use LMGs myself and have no qualms with the lack of mobility.

     

    I wouldn't mind seeing specific mobility percentages for each weapon within a category of weapons because drum fed LMGs could well be a lot lighter than belt fed ones but still suffer from the mobility of heavier LMGs.
