...And as a primarily SMG user, I hate it. The maps just don't cater to ARs like SMGs do IMO. Now Treyarch feels the need to nerf SMGs to hell and continuously buff AR's. In MW3 there was a balanced mix of AR and SMG users--neither weapon class was the best. I don't understand why that can't be the case in this game. Feel free to discuss your opinion.

I'm primarily an AR user, so meh.
My third most deadly weapon is the MSMC, but the top two are ARs.
What would happen if I hired two private investigators to follow each other?

MSMC is completely usable still and competes well with the ARs thankfully. My favorite weapon is the MTAR but the maneuverability with the MSMC and the fact that its not too inaccurate still is the key points for me. PDW? Forgot about it, I can't stand that thing now.

If you were going to die soon and had only one phone call you could make, who would you call and what would you say? And why are you waiting?

Actually SMG is still pretty decent.

You still have a good balance of decent smg and ar.

Vector is still good too imo.
I will refrain from changing this sig until Mike Trout wins his first MVP award.

They're pretty even with a slight lean to ARs. MSMC is pretty unchanged, Skorpion is still close quarters king.
Red wine with fish. Well that should have told me something.
