I agree about SMGs. The fact that an MP40 or Sten can kill with fewer shots (3) than an MG42 (4) (which irl tears through concrete with ease) is just a joke. The game’s weighted to favour running and gunning to appease 12 year olds.
The abundance of close quarters combat is also highly unrealistic and unrepresentative of WWII.
I mean it’d be good to see more mid-long range combat and a greater range of elevation. Maps in this game tend to be quite two dimensional and offer a narrow range of engagement distances. It’d be a lot more interesting if there were a greater range of engagement distances and SMG users had to find a way to flank or sneak up on LMGs and snipers, whilst LMGs and snipers too had to be careful about how they navigate maps
It’s such a shame Activision sold out for $$$
