Never said they couldnt, I even said in my original message that I use the AN-94. In fact it is one of my favorite weapons on this game and the first thing i spent my first prestige token on
Maybe I've got short memory, but for me SMGs feel the same
Agreed, I can't tell the difference. The PDW+Suppresor is still a beast in my hands. I'll admit though that I never used it as an AR like a lot of people mistakenly did, so not being able to smoke unsuspecting players at unrealistic ranges is not something I miss. Get used to using SMGs at the APPROPRIATE ranges...or switch to an AR.
Yeah, this is a problem I have. I've been such an avid AR user for so many installments that switching to the SMG's seems very awkward.
I don't use silencer anymore on SMGs because I tried it last night and it was the most frustrating thing ever. No problem. The only benefit a silencer had for me was that I got more group kills.
No weapon is unusable in this game (apart from snipers for me but everyone else seems to do well with them) I use SMG/AR on most maps and an LMG on Carrier and as long you play to the strengths of the weapon you will be fine.
I don't rush with an LMGm, I constantly ADS down long sight lines whilst moving from cover to cover and with an SMG I get a bit more mobile and try to out-maneuveur the enemy.
used to love the silenced msmc one of the all-time great cod guns but it isnt as good now
using it unsilenced now but isnt the same
They are still working great for me but then again, I only use them like an SMG so maybe my expectations have always been skewed.
I think many people got used to using them like ARs and Snipers, which they never should have been capapable of being.
Good change if people are seeing the difference due to using them as something they are not.
depends on the connection for me... in good lobbies i dont see an issue but in bad lobbies i swithh to the vector with scav and just launch c4 and shock charges at every corner so when i need to run a distance in an open area i can cover the gap where my gun is almost useless quickly and safely.. it seems to actually piss people off a lot...
