no, because the M60 was way to accurate, and its rate of fire was to high. thats why noobs used it.

The M-60 totally unbalanced any close-quarter map. I'm glad they made the changes they did.

I am glad as well. Now you have to be prone to get accuracy with the M-60. It is a lot more fair and I enjoy seeing some guy with a M-60 shooting me in a crouching position and the I just capp him with my Type-56!!!!(my new favorite combo)

Yeah, they made it useless. The problem is, they have to balance all the weapons. So even if a weapon is historically better than all the other weapons in the game, they'd have to change it so it was more fair. I mean, the LAW was a disposable weapon-you can't reload it. In the game, however, you can. Also, the Marines used bazookas, not the LAW, the M-16, AK-47, M-14 had selectable fire modes. The M-79 had a ton of different kinds of ammo it could fire. Only one in the game. It's all done to make it more balanced. Let's say a weapon in the game, historically speaking, was better than all the others. It had a faster fire rate, did more damage, not a lot of recoil, more accurate, longer range, etc. That would be unfair. They're not going for total realism here. So, while I agree the M-60 was dumbed down, it's okay by me because they're trying to balance it all.

^ well actually in the game you dont reload the law. you just have 5 and after you fire one you can see him toss it on the ground. another unrealistic thing about that class is that you were able to carry those 5 laws with you. ok so you have a 50pound machine gun + 3 clips. 5 LAWS (dont know how much they way). 1 pistol + 4 clips. 1 knife. i dont see how your average GI Joe is able to run with all that crap.

dont know about the weapons but the actual game seems to be more jerky and laggy, and more prone to freezing since i patched it. Hpoefully the patch will sort this out

I've noticed the use of the M60 has gone down in pretty much all the servers I've hopped in lately and that's good, IMHO. "Dumbing" it down was necessary for the game balance. I think the class weapons are pretty much good as they stand now. Of course, I still have complaints about some of the vehicles weapons, but that is another thread for another day.

It;s a GAME, I repeat, a GAME. You have no idea what you are asking for, do you? You people would complain from here to eternity if this game was "accurate", and realism. Realism would suck.
