View Full Version : *complaint* Does anyone else find the SMG extremely overpowered?

Yeah yeah. "CRY SOME MORE."
I'm just sick and tired of being picked off by these puppies as if they're sniper rifles.
Damage nerf please?
Anyone else agrees? Post rants here.
I have a feeling Zombie is going to be reading these threads.
They can't just release a FPS multiplayer game and only provide glitches and bug fixes for updates when so many things in the PC version need tweaking.

I don't feel its that over powered. At least not in my experience. For me it was a great weapon for dashing up close to an enemy and spraying what I could, but often when it came to similar aim and it was SMG vs Assault, assault won hands done. And upclose shotgun just wins instantly. The only gun I feel is under powered is the sniper rifle. For whatever reason the bullet isn't as instant a hit and it doesn't do as much damage as you feel it should.
In short, do I feel the SMG is over powered? Not really.

No I don't.

I don't think the smg is overpowered, but i think the 1 hit kill range of the shotgun is. It is a close quarters weapon but can kill with one shot at a far greater range than it should be able to with such a wide spread.
I agree the sniper rifle doesn't seem very powerful. At level 34 my assault rifle has pretty much the same damage as the sniper rifle and with the combat scope on plenty of zoom, more than enough to pick off sniper rifle users. There really is no point using a semi auto sniper instead of a aull auto AR in 95% of situations.

Personally I think the Sniper rifle has way to low stopping power, I can understand the SMG complaint it shouldn't be able to snipe people but it does, Damage nerf though no, more recoil at range maybe a better fix.
As for the sniper, I can't see an honest reason to have it, My rifle has just as much range but more firepower than it thus instant choice.

If you go behind the corner, enable HRV, see where the enemy(sniper) is, and disable it, you can pretty much get a headshot before the sniper does..
I use SMG for that particular reason. I agree with SMG being overpowered.
