People keep saying there isnt an OP weapon...

#1highwindmtPosted 12/3/2012 3:02:43 PM
Its true....in a way. There isnt one gun that stands above the rest (like the famas or MP40).

But there are several that I think are definitely close. The two main ones that come to mind are the PDW and the MSMC. I think a case could also be made for the burst pistol and the KAP40, to a lesser extent.

Anyone else agree? Or have a different weapon to nominate?

I've regularly gone up against people using all those OP guns you've mentioned, and killed them with only the TAC45. Does that mean that handgun is OP? No.

That said, I do feel like SMGs in general aren't balanced. They excel in almost every situation in this game. The fix would be to decrease their accuracy, or to make maps that aren't the size of a cardboard box.

Its a fairly balanced game, just like Black Ops 1.

Skorpion EVO is the only gun i'd consider OP, even though it really isn't.

It has the highest ROF of the SMG's, but does not have a very larger clip + a lot of recoil.

I personally don't think any weapon is OP in this game, which is nice. There are "over used" weapons, such as the MSMC. I wouldn't say the smgs are op or even unbalanced, more that most of these maps seem to be build for those guns, thus detuning players from using other types of weapons. It would be nice to see some more open and larger maps that would accomidate LMGs and ARs more.

its fairly balanced

some minor things could pretty much be done to most all of the weapons to help further the balance

its the small maps and the gameplay that enforces rushing that makes smgs seem so OP

on Blops maps the smgs would seem fine

this game with blops maps would the Ron burgundy (he is the balls if you did not know)

SMG's are very poor at long range, so that eliminates long range combat dominance. Try to use a Skorpion at long range with full auto fire. Not so usable, right? Sure, you could fire off a few rounds to let the recoil reset, but the enemy can easily kill you with a FAL without adjusting their firing speed.

While maps could be larger, would you find maps like Downfall, Outskirts, Seelow sized maps good for Black Ops 2? It would certainly cut down the SMG use.

Scorpion evo. Just its RoF. But tbh every smg in this game is pretty op. This cod just reminds me of waw but with more variety in smgs.
