What makes SMG's powerful?

I always feel like assault rifles are the better pick when I compare them.

Run & Gun. Smg's are more suited for that. Most people play run and gun so they feel are overall superior.

AR's are mid to long range weapons that require more control. They generally have more power than smg's.

Not to mention grenaders & torpedoes are amazing.

(Usually) Higher rate of fire, better elemental effect damage/chance, clip size...

Those are usually the factors that make SMGs better.

People generally choose to use this over ARs due to higher rates of fire and less recoil, making it easier to use and more effective at all ranges.

Bee shield, and character skills to a lesser extent. Extra damage applied to every shot means fire rate reigns supreme when it comes to damage.

As for long range, most ARs have below average accuracy. The few exceptions are burst fire Dahls... and burst fire just plain sucks for damage for reasons mentioned.
