Ok judging by this you seem like a player that thinks that everything he doesn't use should be nerfed and everything he does use needs to be buffed that is all I see here. Learn to adapt or sell your game Treyarch shouldn't have to cater to garbage that thinks anything that kills them is overpowered. The only "overpowered" gun at this point is the PDW that's it nothing else so yea stop complaining because you aren't being catered to and learn to adapt or you can stop posting in these forums to only benefit you and your playstyle.
WTH? hahaha Adam you my friend should read, I understand comprehension skills are lacking in many who read and post.
You obviously do not know me, you know nothing about how I play the game. Please re-read my original post.
Please tell me, what is so hard about ARs. Yesterday I just used AN for the first time and on Carrier/Cargo it was total beast. Using AR just requires slower and more defensive gameplay and thats all. If you want SMG feeling, then use quickdraw, stock, dexterity.
Recently there was a poll about highest k/d weapons and quess what..at least 5 top weapons were all ARs.
ARs are as easy weapons as everything else, just thanks to map design they are useful on very few maps.
E: 70% of time I use SMGs, but k/d wise t25 is my best weapon by far.
At least for me those weopons are even:) Using shotgun and hipfire seems to be the easiest, but staying alive at the same time is different story.
Still k/d wise ARs are best weopons for decent/above average players.
Well hipfiring a shotty should be like that, they are not meant for aiming. Hipfiring with a SMG is the easiest feeling, its smooth, efficient it feels effortless.
Why people uses SMG?
1 Youtubers that say that them are cool to use, making believe to those 8-9 years kids to be "Pro" (i don't know why people has to say "n00b" or "Pro"...what does this mean? Like the word "Swag"...ABSOLUTELY NOTHING);
2 As you said, easy to hipfire and spray 'n pray. They take no skill to use;
3 It's senseless that an SMG can outgun an AR. I use some AR, also the hard types (M8A1 and SWAT-556), that i find not bad, or even the SCAR-H (then scrapped for the M27 because of the WRONG nerf putted on it -.-). Why a PDW has to beat a weapon as the M27? Wrong kind of conception of firearms from 3arc;
4 The classic connection issues, nothing to say, it's already well known and old this matter.
What we have to blame? Not only the connection, not only the 3arc...BUT THE DAMN COD COMMUNITY.
