As of now they are just big ass submachine guns with the abilty to be used accuratly when prone I know they overheat but they are still to effective at CQB. I would put a picture of todays BFE match in which most of the Axis team was made up of MG34s

Good! I like to have atleast some amount of realism with my games. I've seen german soldiers firing MGs standing up in movies and pics, so why not games?

Were they holding the MG42 in the unsupported standing positions?

Yes, although the feeder was still beside him standing up aswell feeding the bullets. I wonder why they didn't deploy.

LOL I notice that the other day when playing. It seemed everyone was using the MG42 like assault rifles.

I myself use it alot since I usually play engie or fire support guy. I actually use it to lay down suppressing fire. Thats one reason why I get TK's when some noob runs in front of the firing MG42. Did ya not notice the muzzle flash? Did you not hear the chatter?

I would like to see the ROF of the MG42 increased. It was supposed to fire so fast that it was hard to distinguish individual shots, the idea being to fire off short bursts at a very high rate of fire.

I think german MGs are perfect right now. You can fire them accuratly in 1-2 round bursts while standing or crouching. I think the problem lies within the availibility of them. The guns themselves are realistic, but to have the whole team as MG gunners isnt. Maybe more maps should have the mg as a pickup kit? I still think the idea of a large weapon depot with lots of kits inside would be a great idea for ballanceing class numbers.

Hey, at least they arnt as bad as they were before ey?

Yeah, I think the mg42 should get a higher ROF, it wasn't called hitler's buzz saw for nothing.

im prety sure the rof is good (75 rounds goes down prety damn fast) but the sound, along with bfs shitty soundcode makes it sound slower. Alot like the ppsh, wich wounds way to slow.

Maybe have the mg42 fire sound have 2 shots instead of one (like DoDs). I think I heard somewhere that it was insanely hard to actually fire off a single round anyways by tapping the trigger. It usually popped off 2 or 3.

Yeah, I quite like that idea actually, I hope the DEVs look into it.

I will agree with that the 75rds do go quick in combat but the sound makes me cringe. I have seen video of a MG42 firing and it sounds nothing like the sound in game.
