I really can't find a real use for the LMG except in TH. Does anyone else have any luck with these weapons for adversarial game modes?
Because of a comment I made in a different thread, I really started thinking about this. These squad automatic weapons were designed to supress, but because of low accuracy they really don't scare anyone. Well, here's a senario to help illustrate. You're looking down a long hallway, that you just know there is someone covered at the end. Ideally you could use your trusty SAW to lay down some cover fire while your teammate advances. But here's what really happens though. You start shooting as your buddy makes his way to the end. Halfway down the hall the enemy pops out, drops your friend, then takes his time to line your head up in his crosshairs, and paints the wall with your brains. What happened? Well, the guy just didn't have the fear of god in him, he knows the LMGs can't hit anything even if it's in 1 sec bursts.
So, I came up with a few ideas. And I do realize it is a little late for any code changeing, but there's always the next time around.
1. Make anytime you're being shot at lower your accuracy. The great part about this one is, it would work across the board for all weapons. But most people would think they're getting lag and get pissed.
2. Lock out the abillity peak from cover while being supress. But they could just get out of cover strafe out past the corner and shoot you like before.
3. My favorite, what I like to call the "Darwin Effect", if you poke your head around a corner while someone is suppressing it comes off. Covered or not you get to catch a stray one right between the eyes. I mean, you do have to keep the reticule in his general area.
I think anyone of these would add a lot to these matches.
What do you guys think? If you read it all.
