SMGs are dominant but it's due to the ****ty maps. Overall the weapons are balanced, but the gun engagements themselve are not, makin SMGs "op" --- Get it right, do it nice. If you make a mistake, you're gonna pay for it twice. If you need it... got to have it. Get yourself a shotgun and bring it back home
I'm already noticing a huge shift from SMGs to ARs again. Any skilled player simply cant ignore that ARs remain a reliable and somewhat lag-resistant all purpose weapon. --- not changing my sig until Shenmue 3 is officially announced.
