SMGs were more overpowered in MW2 and MW3 than they will ever be in BO2.
Im still waiting on your defenition of OP... because after looking at this statement you do not know what OP is.
so why does everybody flock to the PDW and MSMC?
every other SMG is just as easy to use, so why aren't they used as much as those 2?
They do have range limits.
Want proof? Play HC and try to get a kill from any kind of range.
They are weak at range.
SMGs are fine, says the guy who never uses them because they are not that great, in his opinion.
Range is fine, if you are getting killed long distance by a SMG, the problem is you.
Your logic is OP
What's ridiculous is reading so many complaints about SMG, and then losing close range to an AR because of lag or bad coding or whatever, and thinking "didn't seem that OP then".
How about... no.
... and I have always used SMGs more than any other gun in every COD. The ONLY thing different about SMGs in this game are...
... the variety.
... the laser sight (i.e. hipfire).
Which, BTW, can be put on an AR... laser sight and stock plus lightweight with Type 25, M27, and MTAR are vicious.
But you would rather whinge than experiment.
Laser sight is highly effective on FAL and SMR as well, even without select fire. Was working on Camos and losing CQB constantly. The Laser Sight really helps... especially against the SMG users. Fun to hear them curse when I kill them with my semi-auto as they spray away.
Stop standing in the open, watch you corners and just be smarter then the enemy. Im sorry if you are standing 50 yards away and i throwing a bucket of bullets at you. Well then you are going to die....
