It also allows you to penetrate things you normally couldn't. There are some objects that will stop your bullet normally, FMJ means your bullet will punch through. You'll also penetrate multiple objects much better as well.
It also increases the degree of the angle you can penetrate from. Say there's a thick object--normally you would be able to weakly punch through it but ONLY if you're shooting it head-on. FMJ allows you to punch through even if you're shooting it at a 30 or 45 degree angle to it.
This is what Deep Impact/FMJ/Hardened has done in every other game, I can't believe that it doesn't do that in this game too. And it also lets you destroy killstreaks faster, you really notice it against choppers. Mk48+FMJ=kills stealth chopper in a few seconds.
But they have NEVER increased the damage of your gun. For some reason the devs think we have Down Syndrome or something so OMG EVERY ATTACHMENT MUST MAKE A BAR MOVE DURR.
The in-game stat bars have been lying ever since they were introduced. Never use them for anything besides a very rough guideline; look up stats online for actually accurate ones.
You are the universe
Expressing itself as a human, for a little while
FMJ is still mostly useless for any weapon that isn't already good at penetrating objects. You would be a fool to run FMJ on SMGs.

Maybe I'm thinking of this wrong but when I think "CQC" I'm thinking about two guys running into each other and they both start hipfiring.. Maybe they start to aim after a few bullets... In those situations I truly believe that the Type25 will have the advantage more times than not since both guns will be missing shots.
I knew FMGs would be OP before the game came out:
I liked the type 25 too in close quarters
close quarter meaning about 3-10 feet away. I seem to do better with the type 95 suppressor and stock than the swat select fire. Haven't really tried out the AN-94 in close quarters, but usually I tap fire using all the advantage i got with the high fire rate on the first 2 shots.
Naw, Full Auto Swat.
stop denying the fact
