The SMGs never needed a nerf in the first place. They are hitmarker machines. Against shotguns they are useless... against a FAL with select fire they are useless
Well I have played about 10 games each with type 25 and Swat
Type 25 with lightweight and laser is like a long range SMG now if you play like that its good.
Swat is now an absolute monster - my KD with it was with old one 0.7 and not used much, now its over 4, so average about 2.5.
Im a 1.75 KD player, its now my best gun LOL....
It still kills in 1 burst to medium range, and bursts are quicker, SWAT is a beast.
I think people were complaining mostly about the Chicom as far as SMG's goes and the fact that hip-fire was retarded on that gun. Just aim in the general direction and viola! Burst that badboy a few times and you're racking up kills!
I think they should've made people check their combat record(s) and see what gun(s) they've died to the most. I've been playing since the launch of the game, 80% HC player, and I've died to more AR's than SMG's. I'm playing the same game as everyone else...
