ARs need to be the strongest weapon category

IMO they are the only weapons that have true diversity and cater to different playstyles. Sure on the surface each SMG was different but generally they catered to the exact same close-mid range, get close and spray playstyle same with Shotguns.

The ARs however have more noticeable differences guns like the MTAR and Type 25 can compete at long range but should always find themselves outclassed by the M8A41 and SWAT in those situations and vice versa at closer ranges. Then you have your semi-auto FALs and SMRs which trade of RoF for high damage to be used as high accuracy weapons and the AN94+SCAR-H+M27 somewhere in between the others.

The game becomes much more balanced when a majority of players are using ARs and there is a few SMGs, SGs and LMGs thrown into the mix. This is why Treyarch nerfed the SMGs hard enough to bring Assault Rifles back into favour as the dominant class of weapons or at least that's my two cents anyway.

"U MAD?", "Get good" & "Use x perk" are legitimate responses to everything.

Makes sense to me as well. Ar's are the most versatile weapons.

They did. It's called Battlefield 3.

Don't Blink. Blink and you're dead. Don't turn your back. Don't look away. And don't Blink. Good Luck.

Hint: the assault rifles as a whole are the best guns in the game. SMGs are generally more dominant at close range, as they should be, but the ARs are much more versatile. The peacekeeper and MSMC are really the only two SMGs that can hang with the assault rifles as a whole. They bring enough to the table to be effective at all ranges, while the other SMGs flat out don't. The PDW has become too inaccurate and weak. It will get gunned down by most things now. The others are basically useful only at close range.

inb4 "waaaahhhh maps are small and cater to SMGs so much"

This is a popular opinion but it's not 1/8 as true as people on the board make it out to be.

This guy gets it. AN-94 and FAL have been the most dominant guns even before the SMG nerfs
