In past games, ExMags was a 50% boost to your mag size (heck in MW2 for certain shotguns it was a 100% boost). Even then, it was not overused on primary weapons--it was good but we often chose something else like a sight, suppressor, Rapid Fire, grenade launcher, and so on.
But now, when we have SO MANY other attachment options, they nerf it to a 30% boost. Why? Where's the logic in that? When we have Laser Sight, Quickdraw, Stock, FMJ, Fast Mags, Target Finder, and all of the other classic attachments to choose from, which gives us LESS incentive to use the ExMags attachment, why make it even worse than before to boot?
The only primary weapon I can condone putting it on is the Skorpion. Everything else the small boost isn't worth giving up one of the other attachments for.
You'd think ExMags would stay just as good as it was before when we have even more reasons to choose something else.
I can understand nerfing Rapid Fire (widens crosshairs and reduces range, unlike before) just because the maps are so full of close range areas, so if Rapid Fire wasn't nerfed it would be all over the place. But why do this to ExMags when it wasn't even the most common choice before?

I feel like fast mags barely give any increase at all now too, for that matter. It's very noticeable with certain weapons (the executioner, for example), but I barely notice on the SMGs and assault rifles. With ludicrously awesome stuff like the long barrel, laser sight, target finder and the like (plus select fire for un****ing burst fire weapons, which are worse than ever now with lag comp), I cannot think of a single reason to take a ****ty magazine attachment.
