Yeah, well, I am tired of using the RPK and the other assault rifle.

What are the best guns to use for the support class in your opinion?

grab the first B2K support gun, it'll be pretty quick, a round or two (assuming you have mortars unlocked). it's really good if you're the type that likes the first two support guns.

M249 is pretty solid. But I've started using the PKP Pecheneg and I'm really enjoying it right now.

PKP by far. The M240B used to be slightly better but they nerfed the bullets it uses, though in the next patch they might fix that since the nerf wasn't meant for that gun.

Depends on the mode.

Hardcore = M249 because of the faster rate of fire. It has lower damage per bullet, but with hardcore that's negligible.

Normal = Probably PKP or M240b. I can't say really, because I rarely don't play hardcore but those two seem to be the guns of choice.

I think the PKP got a accuracy nerf this last patch so not sure if it's still considered the best now. Also not sure if there are actual stats yet on the new BTK guns yet. However I love the second BTK gun you unlock and it was my favorite in BF2. It's also similar in style to the default vanilla support guns. I hate the first gun you unlock for BTK support, seems way to inaccurate unless your using the bipod (which I hate using)

PKP does 34 damage, the next best LMGs do 30. Meaning 3 bullets to kill instead of 4. Accuracy also isn't an issue when using a bipod or foregrip. There are stats on the new guns and they're not great.

If they go through with the supposed balance changes, the m240b will probably be the best support gun once again, because the PKP will have its max spread increased three-fold and the 240 will have its damage nerf undone. What's more, the PKP's recoil recovery is terrible (and so I still prefer the 240 even now).

If you like the defaults though, the QBB is quite good. It has the same sighted spread as the defaults, the fastest bullet speed in the game, 101 rounds w/ammo attachment, the lowest moving/hip spread in the support class, and low first-shot recoil. I'd say it's the best in the m27/RPK/mg36/QBB category.

Current best support weapon is the PKP Pecheneg, after the next balance pass it'll probably be the M240B again (Pecheneg is getting its max sighted spread fixed to be 3.0, the same as all the other LMGs, instead of its current 1.0, M240B will probably get its damage un-nerfed as they nerfed it by accident when they nerfed the SCAR and G3)
