People have been moaning about the smgs being overpowered and needs nerfing up, but why should a pistol, which is a secondary weapon, be more powerful than an smg at close range? The game should be realistic and a pistol shouldn´t do more damage than a submachine weapon. 3 hits with a tac or one clean burst with the B23R and that´s you down; whereas it usually takes 4 hits to the body with any smg. I mean the pistols are so powerful you are getting people running about with pistols only and at point blank range, I don't stand a chance against guys who have them in dual-wield at point blank range.
Just thought I´d share my moan of the day.
Yesterday I used nothing but a Five Seven with suppressor and extended mags, I performed equally as well as I would with any other gun, I was gunning people down at LMG range and it was quite funny. I agree that they can be extremely devastating when used properly - not so much the weaker ones with higher recoil / shorter range.
