As of now, they not quite as useful as they ought to be. There are very few spots in the game where the MG's are actually an extremely useful tool. They end up being giant beacons for snipers to look for when a player is spewing out those tiny sparkles of light or "bullets" as they have been dubbed. I propose that the player models be hunched over the MG's when using them. How the heck could they aim them if they are standing with them at their waist anyway?

A MG nest isnt really a nest if you cant get down in it.

In WWII the MGs were deadly and tore apart troops like crazy. In BF1942 if you see someone on an MG it's the EASIEST kill you can get. I mean when soldiers encounter MG nests they can't take them out with their rifles or SMGs.

yeah, for the accuracy, maybe they should up the ROF... indeed, make the spots more of a nest, lower to the ground, maybe in prone position and some waist high bags to the sides and rear (possible to make on custom maps???)

And thus you see lots of MGs just sitting empty becaues no one wants to get on them and get killed. Like on Tobruk, the MG's would be mega useful.

Theyre too weak too...Really those guns would tear someone up in a couple shots or so.

And the best part is that they are placed in pretty il-logical spots.

Berlin for example. 2 MG's on a sandbag, infront of a building. I would have put them on the 2nd story in a window.

And there is even an MG there wich you cannot reach. :S

i totaly agree they should even make them reload. The mg42 is the only mg taht over heated so the browning shouldnt over heat and the mg 42 shot 1500 round per a min. In game it probly shoots only 200 per a min. and plus it too alot longer to over heat. This browning shot 500 rounds per a min.
