LMG = SMG

monkeylord

Whack on grip, speed and steady aim and the LMGs become slightly heavier SMGs although no SMG looks this good in gold

    I'd love to have your connetion.

      Trust me you wouldn't  this is my average round

      I'm not sure where you're getting lag help from  they were pre injured and the red screen came from someone in the tunnel maybe the reason they weren't shooting at me might have something to do with the 2-3 people behind me.

    I love the MK46. Best withe stalker, kick, and a silencer in my opinion.

      When i'm running my LMG build I like the enemy to know where I am for some reason they hear an lmg/remote sentry go off and they seem to flood towards you.

    With some practice and LMG can become an all purpose weapon capable of going the distance without the need to reload

  • Re: LMG = SMG

    I run with the MG36 with a grip and ACOG or M60 suppressed with red dot. Either work very well for me.

  • Re: LMG = SMG

    Been using the M60E4 with Red Dot and Grip and it does quite well.

    • Re: LMG = SMG

      Yeah i'm looking forward to the M60 after picking it up on dome but for me it's all about the speed and grip combo without speed I move a bit to slow to hoover up the tags and recon is to valuable to switch out because mixed with the LMG it can often light up the whole enemy team on the tighter maps

      • Re: LMG = SMG

        I've been using Extreme Conditioning for my first perk with it and, of course, Specialist Killstreak. Doesn't speed you up, but at least it let's you run for a very noticeably longer period of time without it.

         

        Only reason I don't go with Speed is because of the, unanimously-agreed, horrid iron sights the M60E4 has compared to the other LMGs, which have more AR-style iron sights. And I also don't want to lose the added accuracy with Grip either just to use the Red Dot Sight...hate such decision-making like this at times, lol.

      • Re: LMG = SMG

        I run Speed and Grip on L86, but I have a hard time trading out Stalker for Steady Aim. I may have to give that a try some time.

  • Re: LMG = SMG

    you analy raped that team btw lol

  • Re: LMG = SMG

    btw i miss the RPD with grip

    This was pre buff, I havent taken the time to create a post buff video but I have been enjoying the LMG's for quite some time especially on maps like village. I still think I was more impressed that I avoided dead mans nuke quite a few times in this one.

    They are all awesome.  I have had each of them gold and the MK46 is the best.  The M60 is my favorite but I have to wast an attach. on a rds cuz the irons suck.  I am prestiged out and this time I havnt put the rds on the M60 so I can go with speed and grip.  It is getting better but I still hate the irons.

     

    The MK36 with speed is almost an AR with its quick reload time.  Its a good gun but not tops IMO.  The Pech. is the badest looking gold gun ever.  If you havnt seen it gold go to a private match and check it out.  Its like the MK46 on roids.

     

    I think I am backwards but I use my LMG classes on the smaller maps.  Dome, Hardhat etc. are sweet with them as you dont have to travel far to find action.

  • Re: LMG = SMG

    The only thing killing me right now is the feeling that the lag has gotten even worse than ever for me (if it were possible)...in several matches, I got as high as SIX to EIGHT hit markers with the M60E4 on people, UP CLOSE, but no kill.

     

    I pretty much gave up on all the ARs because of it. I literally went through matches with each and every one and it feels like they can't kill anything at any range and just get hit markers. Including the Type 95 and MK14. I even used up almost half of an Extended Mag, Rapid Fire P90 to kill a person.

     

    Considering it happened so often, was I really just THAT unlucky SO many times in terms of matchmaking up with a bunch of crappy connected people, or did anyone else feel a similar thing?

      After reading this thread last night I gave the first lmg a go. Wow, I like it. I leveled it up with two attachments silencer and ext mags i think. Anyhow it's really good, up close is a little iffy but being able to take a whole team down and the shooting down a heli and spy plane without reloading was very cool.

       

      no need for rockets anymore for my aa class. add blindeye pro and it takes air support down quicker.

  • Re: LMG = SMG

    Been loving the MK46 with Silencer and Grip. Rips apart enemies, takes down air support in a breeze with Blind Eye Pro, and combine that with an EMP nade, I can take down most everything thrown at me, even if I do move slow. XD

  • Re: LMG = SMG

    I have the L86, M60 and MG38 in gold. The LMG's are nothing like SMG's and to treat them like that is silly. They have a very wide hip spread, they have a slow rate of fire and they are heavy and bulky.

    The best way to use them is to find power positions or objectives, go down prone and defend. If you use rapid fire, you are wasting an attachment. The three best attachments for the LMG's are thermal, grip and a silencer. Always use attachments and use a grip with another one as kick doesn't reduce as much recoil as grip.

     

    There's no point playing an LMG like an SMG when you can so easily play to its strengths by using it properly.

      But that can get boring. Why else are Strikers and AA12s used as SMGs, and Snipers are used as shotties or semi-auto AR?

       

      Because it's fun and different.

      • Re: LMG = SMG

        Yes, but if you use an LMG like an SMG you'll get ripped to shreads because your enemy will most likely be using an SMG with faster reload, faster mobility, closer hip spread, faster aim down sights and a faster rate of fire...

          Really far from the truth I always use the lmg's this way and maintain a positive K/D (just about) it depends on the user to use it like a heavy smg you have to have a certain disregard for your life.

          That's what SoCo is for my friend.

      Everyone plays to their own style I don't use rapid fire and as the clip shows it's pretty easy racking up kills using hip fire .

      I'm not really a lay down and wait kind've guy I much prefer charging in clearing out the enemy and sweeping up the tags.

      The best way to use any weapon is how you like to use it i've nailed the 2500 kills for the MG36 and well on the way to getting the 2500 for the MK46 after which i'll switch to the M60.

      I find it's strengths lie in driving the team backwards or to where I want them but each to their own

    • Re: LMG = SMG

      Just a clip to show the power of using the LMG from the hip this was pre-buff and I was still ironing out the kinks with the weapon

      Plus moving about is always more fun
