This is why you shouldn't be in charge of gun balancing. If the gun was meant to be spammed they wouldn't have put iron sights on it. YOU feel that's how SMGs shouldn't be used and you're wrong which explains why you're having troubles.

lol obviously you don't know what iron sight does.  all "sights" are meant to aim, the better the sights, the better the aim.  now tell me if iron sight is good for aiming

Go to a gun range and fire off a clip with any smg and see how accurate it is when you just unload a full clip of spraying. Then try it with burst fire and see how many more bullets actually hit the target.

And I will say it again. People who got all use to run n gun from the last 3 CoD games are in for a rude awaking if they think that the mad rusher with an smg is going to be the top score on the team. The ARs, snipers,and markman rifles are going to mow you down on most of the bigger maps before you even have a chance to aim your smg regardless of what sight you pick.

The more I play ghost the funnier I find watching the mad rusher trying to run across giant areas just to take a bullet to the head, even funnier when you get to hear them complain at the moment of death. Or the bitchfest in the lobby about campers owning them.

Yeah they should and they do have a longer range (I was mainly responding to his "Next you will want the pistols to hit people across the map comment") and an SMG should be dominant at mid range but they are as useful as an ashtray on a motorbike. You practically have to have the gun barrel up a guys nose to do any damage.

EDIT* Was meant to respond to Chucky.

Ah, ok. Agree with the pistol statement, And fair enough you could say the areas where the range suits the SMGs are few and far between but inside there decent damage range, they are superior to ARs in my opinion of course, plus good hip fire and pre-firing works excellent too. But overall ARs are much more efficient in ghosts

Ran out of ammo and picked up the K7, damn good gun with great damage. Sure it has recoil as should any gun with a high rate of fire, but that doesn't matter up close where an SMG should thrive. The closer the target is the less influence recoil has. It's basic, fundamental combat.

I Don't think the smgs are underpowered I think it's the AR that are over powered the honey badger and Remington are so OP they have zero recoil and are unbelievable at long range I've not tryed the other AR apart from the msmb and that's just ok very inconsistent.

I find that the MTAR and K7 are both fine without grip.  The Vector technically doesn't need it either if you burst fire it.  I've actually clipped a guy from the Houses on top of the hill all the way down past the A flag on Stonehenge with it.  The biggest issue for most is that the lines of sight are longer in Ghosts than they have been in the past two titles and as such the recoil and damage drop for SMGs has actual meaning.  You just have to adjust your routes to keep the lines of sight in your favor.
