The BAR is not a crappy weapon. Granted, it has less ammo than its counterparts, but it's powerful and accurate with a good rate of fire. Maybe it's not the best weapon, but it fits its role well, IMO.

The Thompson has the 20-round magazine because it has a higher rate of fire than the MP40, but is about as accurate. Balancing reasons.

Also, I recall you saying that it's unbalanced for the PPSH to have a 71-round magazine since no other countries in the game have such an SMG. Well, consider the fact that the Russians lack an assault rifle in the game.

Point of my posts' wasnt about whether the weapons were crappy, its about that everyone else's is better. Yes the BAR is a decent gun, but theres not a thing that it does that its counterparts dont do better.

The Russians arent lacking in terms of anything. If they were, it would be common for soviet playes to snatch an MP44 whenever they drop but seeing as how the majority of players grab the PPSH the first chance they get it must not be a problem lacking a support gun. This is mostly a map issue. Soviet maps are heavily slated to frantic CQB where RoF and ammo trump power and mid range accuracy by a wide margin. Funny that they didnt give the soviets the DP given the fair prevalence of the weapon...

Call of Duty 2 has a lot of compromises to the gameplay, a few of which are not thought out very well. People taking an 'infinite' amount of hits (as long as they can recover) is not a good thing. I suppose that's my main beef with it and why I like Call of Duty better.

trench gun shoots to slowly. IRL they lack a disconnect so they shoot as fast as you pump. I can shoot mine faster than i can my mini 14 semi auto rifle. In game the shotty sucks, and it insults my toy lol

Jeepinator;3350446What are you talking about. The real Trench gun was a regular Pump action Remington shotgun. Even civilians could have this gun. The design has hardly changed from then, and shotguns aren't that much more powerful today. Anyway, one shot from any gun is enough to kill someone. If you took one shot in the chest with a shotgun, you may not die immediately but you are pretty much done fighting :-)

Err wrong its no remington. Its a Winchester model 1897, designed by the man himself, John Moses Browning

quite right.:bows: The Winchester model 1897 was the first truly successful pump action shot gun produced. until discontinued in 1957 over a million were produced in various grades and barrel and barrel lengths.
