Why do people keep using Assault Rifles in this SMG dominated Game?

The only guns worth while are PDW, Chicom, and Skorpion. An-94 is OK, but you still have to contend with lots of tight corners and over few sightlines. If you use an AR in the same game as me, I'd just jump across your sights and kill you before you react with the AR's inferior ROF and Hipfire Spread.

The only advantage ARs have is the range, and you can still kill effectively at long range with an SMG.

Because they are powerful from all ranges. If you have good awareness and knowledge as well as good aim AR can dominate SMGs. SMGs are just convenient because of ROF, running speed, margin for error but ARs are better if you know what you're doing.

So you've never been killed by an AR before? FOH with that nonsense man, AR's are legit in this game. Sure, if you're running through the map recklessly, an SMG would benefit you the most. But if you're taking your time, watching your sight lines, using cover and keeping track of where the enemy is, an Assault Rifle is far superior.

It's funnier to hipfire someone with the Swat.

Because they don't like hitmarkers

Except you move much slower with an LMG, takes much longer to reload. No, an AR is better for moving about the map at a careful pace.
