I think it is common knowledge to anyone that the portrait of the German MG's is made obscenely disgusting for this MOD. Atleast I myself think this... Why you ask? 1. 75 rounds? Ha! If you had an MG42, youd know that for every squeeze of the trigger you should fire anywere from 5-15 bullets. That all depending on how fast you let go. Considering you hold the trigger for 1 second, that 12 rounds you should dispend. Our current (bullshit) drums, hold 75 bullets... Whats up with this? The MG42 was not made for Drums. There is an AA version with a drum, but thats as far as it goes, I bet the modification was rare'er than an FG42. I demand we give 2 250 (or 5 50 round linked) belts. They work for Day of Defeat, and they should work here. It's even a bigger shame that Day of Defeat is a gameplay Mod, but they know more about an MG42 than we do. If you got a problem with this than just made the thing overheat like it did realistically, and if it hits the top, than the barrel is broken and it cant cool off anymore. The only exception for the drumer boys drum is the MG34, which was actually meant to use the drum because with the belt, the bullets would get dirty and jam the gun up. But this MG was only used up untill what? 42? Than they smacked them all on tanks where they could keep em crispy clean. POWER TO THE PEOPLE! WE WANT OUR AMMUNITION NOW! :lol: 2. People who bitch about the MG's make me sick. They, like true morons, run at the machinegunner within 10 feet with their SMG or Rifle, and expect the machinegun to be firing inaccurate. Than they die, come here and babble and have the Mod's listen to their whining. Wheres the sence of realism? IF THE GOD DAMN PERSON HAS THE HITLERS CHAINSAW, YOU DONT GO CQB! Than they bitch and whine more and what do you get? An Omaha Beach with 8 MG42's (6 of which become useless after the Allies grab the middle flag) and 2 useless tripods. A new foy that will be MG42 clean. Now, if I see more than 6 Tompson's on that damn map, Im going to have a stroke. A Stalingrad that resembles Omaha, and has an even worse weapon the the Thompson... The PPsH. Where's the sence of fairness here. The Germans were infamous for their "On the Go" light machineguns. Why can the Allies get a million BARs and we cant even get 1 nice MG42? Fuck Balance. If I wanted balance I'd be playing Vanilla. 3. In all this chaos, theres still people out there who would love to see the Rifle Granade die. Ok, than if that be that, why not just give up. The MP40 is horrible, always will... I dont believe 1 word that its fixed, not when you got a million bullets flying at you when your spitting a measly half. Look, if they want to give us MG42 kits, ok do that. But give everyone else Tompson kits, and PPsH kits. Lets do this fair. Lets calculate real stats of lets say... Kursk. Lets find out how many rifles were used, compare the ratios to how many people play on an average server, and make the average available number of kits. That way, no one will be able to bitch anymore about an overpowered MG42 that was 50 million times better in real life. Did I mention its not upto speed yet? It fires a quarter of what it should. So whats everyone complaining about when it comes to the 42. I'll be dead in my grave if and when 0.7 comes out and we dont have one MG42, or 34, thats actually USABLE! SO to all you MG42 and 34 haters out there... Dont like it? DONT RUN AT IT... You can choose to hide, you dont have to be the hero.:0wned:
Haha you kids and your drugs...
Tiger's MG42 > Tiger :) MG42 + me = love

I think somebody dug up already a figure about the PPsh, it was used a lot. A lot more than MG42s anyway :) I practically never play with machineguns as I can be more effective with other weapons. It takes very long to deploy the gun if you pick it up as a kit and then it takes a long time to turn it. And if you use an AA machinegun of a tank or APC you are as good as dead anyway. Actually, the APC machinegun is considered so useless that I now get a lot of kills with it simply because enemy infantry doesn't expect me to use it :)
Machine guns were an integral part of WWII and of course we should have them. The problem is that in Foy, EVERYONE gets an MG42. In Stalingrad, EVERYONE uses an SMG.
I wish ALL weapons were kitted and you spawn with a pair of underwear - or a rifle.
I take what n0e says way too seriously

Class restrictions. In my opinion pickup kits are kinda stupid, if we have to there is a sixth class we could always add but pickup kits should only be special weapons(MG tripods).
I'd like the MG to have a new sound, something like the MG sounds from COD.
Tripods and stationary guns should have the ammo belt.
