It is the only way. the only reason that the FMG's are OP are because of Akimbo. Don't nerf it. Just remove Akimbo.
I wish. Its doubtful though I'm afraid. Akimbo doesn't even make sense. In every lobby there's always one dufus who thinks he's Rambo running around spraying akimbos all over.
BTW,have you noticed that you can reload Akimbo FMGs faster than you can reload just one? WTF
"Gun on gun" is what bowling said. He didn't say Gun on guns. It takes skill to use the fmg silenced or mp9. I have being forced to use them just so I don't get them used on me. I just want to run the mp9 as a good competative secondary.
A secondary weapon should never be more powerful than primary in FPS. Sure akimbo FMGs are only useful in CQC, but in a game where the maps are so small and tight they are just a constant pain in the arse for any players with any level of skill. The only thing more annoying than akimbo are those n00by arseholes running around with extra damage and range on Strikers.
I've changed my style of play to compensate for this, but now I've started receiving messages from the n00bs running around with akimbo FMGs and Strikers for being a n00by camper! You couldnt make this up!
Akimbo should not be taken out of the game, it should be taken out of the machine pistol class, however it should be left on pistols, as that is fun to run and not nearly as overpowered or accurate as any of the machine pistols.
IMO, akimbo was introduced so that had something similar to dual wielding in Halo...then Bungie responded by introducing a perks system into Halo. Theres room in Halo for dual wielding because they understand the concept of both map and weapon balance. Unfortunately IW dont.
