I just recently expereinced the FG-42 in SP. Its weird how it is never used in multiplayer. Admittedly it is powerful, but the Germans are in every map, and IMO the need as much weapon variety as possible.

Good weaon in single-player, though it only really features in the first few American missions.

Well, I think it is in a few maps as I recall, or that might just be for Heat of Battle. Of course if too many people had one people would say the teams were "unfair".

What a joke. A bullet is a bullet is a bullet.

Not really, Ensign. There is a big difference between a Springfield 1903a4 Bolt-Action sniper rifle and an assault-type FG-42 mounted with a scope. Now I know you are pretty smart, and I know which one you'd take over the other. That's why FG-42's are limited.

I never could hit anything with the fg-42's scope.

The great thing about it is its damage

The FG-42 is too good for multiplayer. Think - everyone would choose it - it is a sniper and an mg, a perfect combination. In servers using FG-42s, only one team member can use it and they must find it first.

Or you can use the Additional War Effects mod and allow everyone to have it as their second weapon...

they should remove the scope and put some iron sights on it so it can be used like the bar and bren, because it is a LMG. that would be fiar enough. now the mp 44 isnt comparable to the bar cuz its a ASSUALT rifle so its in a class of its own (besides a lmg fires rifle ammo which the fg42 does but the mp44 does not).
