with the ability we have now to pick up mg34 and 30 cal kits the support class is a unneeded, stupid class..most of these weapons took time to set up and mutiple people to shoot CORRECTLY. The only instance i see of a MG that was fired from the standing position is the BAR. Mg42's, Brens, or Type 99's were all fired manly from a seated or prone position. Or even still they were mounted on something for support. I hardly think Germans went running into a building spraying these weapons, all while jumping around. Why not just cut the class all together? The drop kits help the support class do what it was ment to do, support fire for advancing troops. We have SMG for all the people who want to run and gun. They dont need a fully auto MG for this.
AT class is alittle more difficult to police the exploit. But again, AT's have such little range that if he has gotten that close to you, you shoulda been dead an hour ago. Those precious few seconds he saves with the bug dont really matter.
The crosshair issue might be hard-coded, but the weapon switch "duration" isn't. I think it's very reasonable to assume that it should take a lot longer to sheath that knife/pistol and unsling and mount your heavy MG or AT weapon. Increasing the time between weapon switches for these classes should be easy and accomplishes roughly the same goal.
How about class limits? Just limit the AT class?
you cant limit the at class, it didnttake two people to shorlder and fire the bazooka, they used two people because you could reload faster, removing the pistol and knife from the at class would make it so they have four shots.....and thats it. good luck with getting anyone to be an at class. what happens if an at guy sees an infintry guy whips out the colt and caps him right as a panzerIV rolls up to the side, he takes out his bazooka and then gets blaimed for exploiting. also do consider that there is a considerable amount of time between switching between the pistol and the bazooka, also think about this, if you get within range of a bazooka, whos fault is it, you? or the at guy? my sympathy goes out to all the wolf gamers when faliese pocket comes on.....all those germans using panzerfausts....*tries to imagine the size of the ban list*
