I remember in CS that the FAMAS only has 25 bullets...
AK74u's rapid fire and grenade launcher made it popular...
personally, I think snipers are stupidly inaccurate. Hell, they are about as powerful as a foam ball...
The psg, a semi auto, one hits more often than the L96...a bolt action...trey, we have a problem...make the l96 more accurate or something. NO! DON'T NERF THE **** PSG. ITS THE ONLY GUN THAT MAKES SNIPING WORTHWHILE FOR ME! I can get lasered by a famas, hell, an AK74u, before I can hardscope someone...give snipers something to work with
Guns really shouldn't be balanced, they all aren't created equal. This isn't a flame thread, but why wouldn't somebody use the most powerful gun that suits their style of play? I'm completely eliminating sniper rifles out of my argument, simply because I don't use them.
But on to assault/LMG/SMG...why should they be balanced to the rest? If they were, everybody would be using the same gun but just a different shape and size. I won't go into boring details of how a FAMAS should do this, and an UZI should do that. They all fit different styles of different players. Most people like to run and gun, therefore they like the AK74 or something else lightweight. It has very little to do with it being "overpowered". Sure it seems it's "overused", but honestly, that's how most people play. That gun works the best for most people for that tactic.
I like to mix it up a bit, Galil once in a while, AK47 when I get it opened, M60 when I just don't care anymore, AK74u on small maps....etc etc etc.
Also gamemodes would come into play into the overpowered/overused argument. Small map where the HQ is in a confined area most of the time would lend itself to something quick like a SMG.
Just my two cents.
who cares :clap:
