They have to be a viable choice since you are using a CaC slot on them. If they weren't effective, they would be a waste of slot.
Nothing like getting outshot by someone using what appears to be a peashooter
Then again, at least they aren't all as rubbish as the Executioner...
I'm all for pistols, it's just funny though when I see a guy finish 39-10 with a silenced pistol, given my team wasn't great with 2 people under level 20, and a couple first prestiges...I don't think that's right.
If the pistols were ment to kill in 3 shots while silenced, might as well have them as a primary.
mmm, I've tried running around with a Kap-40 briefly, and I must say I was surprised by how beastly it was. Its like having a stronger Blops 1 SMG as a secondary, and you dont need to use a wildcard!
Maybe they could do with a little less reach if anything.
