Ok, I don't want to sound like a know-it-all, or a jerk, or whatever kind of word that this would sound like, but...
SMGs and Machine Pistols (MPs) are really overused.
But that's not what I'm dissapointed about.
It's that pretty much every gun class is underused because of SMGs. MPs are fine, until someone decides to put Akimbo on it.
It's pretty sad if you use your secondary more than your primary.
Everybody likes the high rate of fire for some reason, but I don't see why.
I mean, Infinityward and whoever esle might as well just put like only 1 gun class in the game, sold it for $50, and it's be the same result.
UPMs with rapid fire, PP90s with extended mags or rapid fire, P90s with rapid fire, PM-9s, MP7s, but at least the MP5 is still balanced.
People running around with akimbo FMG9s, akimbo MP9s, akimbo Skorpions, akimbo everything...
I mean, you can't tell me you haven't noticed this already.
I've been in multiple games where everytime I looked at the kill-feed, all I see are P90s and PP90s, FMG9s and MP9s.
There shouldn't be something called a "good weapon" in MW3, it sould be your favorite gun, based on your preferences. But rate of fire has really taken over MW3.
I know you know this is true, and if you don't see it, you need to stop spending so much time on this forum, and go play the game that this forum is about.
So all I ask is to just spread the word. SMGs are just getting old. Sure, they are good guns, but seriously, I don't want MW3 to turn into an SMG and Akimbo MP dominated game.
Here's my solution if Infinityward or whoever ever listens to me.
The rate of fire, and dammage, have to be inversely proportional with eachother.
As in, as rate of fire increases, dammage decreases. As dammage increases, rate of fire decreases (at least just for the SMG and MP class)
Players should be rewarded for being able to aim and get hit markers with low rate of fire guns. Of course guns like snipers and shotguns (excluding the AA12) fit into this "rule" too, having low rates of fire, but really high dammage.
Right now SMGs have a high rate of fire and high dammage. Assault rifles have high dammage, but medium rates of fire. Do the math.
And I think it's time to get rid of the Rapid Fire and Akimbo perks. Either that, or they really need to nerf them in their accuracy a lot.
So I implore you all, listen to me. I don't need no recognition, I don't want any hate. But I think someome needed to start to speak up, so that maybe everyone else will too.
If you comment with hate, I won't respond to you. If you comment with a sarcastic hateful question, I won't answer.
As a gamer to fellow gamers, we need to step together on this.
SMGs are out of hand, and Akimbo MPs are making multikilling easy for anyone.
That's all I have to say, ending this message with a sigh of disapointment.
