So the OP is complaining about shotguns and snipers...then a few posts down is a complaint about smgs...an di bet i can find one abotu AR's....look dude nothign in this game is better than anything else...each class has an offset..if they r using shotguns use an AR if sniping usually they r camping so either dont go that way or sneak up on them as they usually cant see it coming...I never have a problem so check your skills before you talk about nerfing every single gun..lol...if the devs listened to all you ppl complaining about guns we woudl have paintball guns and pool noodles for weapons....
I'd nerf the SMG's if it were up to me.
Don't get me wrong I don't hate them because I use them myself.
The fact is for me, getting scorestreaks such as the VSAT and the lodestar are very difficult for me to get when using a shotgun or sniper. I really have to be alert and do my best.
When using an SMG I can run around more freely and be more careless and still get high scores.
Battlefield maps really are huge and that is what makes balancing weapons and having them used correctly in that game so much easier, you really can make it so shotguns have a 25m range and you can have it so a sniper rifle is best used in a support/camper roll without so much danger, LMGs are better for covering/supressing fire ect. but CoD maps are shoeboxes so as always SMG/Shotty running is the easiest way to play, and normal sniping is near impossible.
