Thanks to everyone who contributed.

For scoring:

1) I tallied the number of times a weapon appeared in a list (number of appearances)
2) I then awarded 5 point for each 1st place position, down to 1 point for each 5th place position in a top 5 list and aggregated these total points (total points scored)
3) Finally, I also worked out the average points scored per appearance (total points scored / number of appearances) in case this was of interest to anyone

Not including specials, 27 weapons made appearances in these lists.

The results obviously aren’t conclusive, due to the influence of Gun Game, the small sample size, and potential over-reporting of weapons considered ‘hip’ to use. But still, for what it’s worth, the results are below...

(FAL, which topped the other 2 lists, finished joint 15th here with 3.00)

Conclusion
If K/D is your primary concern, there’s nothing wrong with a good AR or LMG, even in this game.

Apparently not... unless you believe that people only get out their SMG classes in the very toughest lobbies. SMG's would probably top an SPM poll though.

Yeah smgs would definately top a spm poll. And smgs are also used more than other guns. The problem is a lot of people here can't seem to understand the difference between overused and overpowered. Hopefully these poll results will shed some light on the reality.
