I remember Camaro and some others discussed this before. You can have such a weapon. It just has to have insane recoil and low RPM, so its effective fire rate is less than its given RPM. It also has to have a very slow ADS, Slow movement speed and only a 1 HK with a headshot. It can deal 95 damage to the torso but it won't result in a 1HK.
Here are my suggestions to balance out the M249 as suggested by HEIL and M82 as suggested by Triggeredaf
Unlock rank: 26 (Slightly behind the M60)
Damage: 32 -> 20
Range: 40 max -> 140 min
Rate of Fire: 725 RPM
Magazine size and Ammunition: 100/200; Can pick up ammo from any 5.56 assault rifle, carbine, and every LMG
Concept or Idea of the weapon: An LMG that can supress an enemy by accurately placing multiple shots in quick succession, effectively becoming as suppressive as the M60
My idea is that it will have a low recoil climb, allowing the user to put 5-7 shots near eachother, but will have low weapon re-center time, meaning it will take longer to recover after firing. High horizontal recoil will make sure the user will not abuse this weapon. Other than that, it'll have all the handling penalties of the M60 including reload speed, slow ADS, and slow movement speed.
As a joke
M249 STANAG (Still in the LMG category)
Unlock rank: 46
Rate of Fire: 725 RPM
Magazine and Ammunition: 30/210; Same sources of ammo as before
Concept and Idea of the weapon: The same as above, but is lighter, has less horizontal recoil and more vertical recoil, and ADS, reloads, and overall handles faster for the price of ammo carried and vertical recoil.
Lmao think of it as a high firerate version of the L86 LSW, but with more muzzle flash.
Barret M82 (here we go, forgive me camaro and heil)
Category: DMR (I can't bring mysef to put this in the Bolt action society)
Unlock rank: 82
Damage: 95 -> 75 (No 1HKO for u)
Range:30 max -> 150 min
Rate of Fire: 120 RPM
Multipliers: 2X to the head (190 -> 150)/ 1.1X to the torso (104 -> 82)
Magazine and Ammunition: 10/40; can pick up ammo from the SFG 50 and other sniper rifles except the Mosin
Concept and Idea of the weapon: An anti-material, counter-sniper rifle that can be used to eliminate multiple targets from range
Role to fill: For snipers who dont like unscoping after every shot, rewards players for sniping defensively, and to take care of things.
So, how can we balance a beast? I'm thinking we can limit the attatchments available for the rifle to:
EoTechs, Coyote, Reflex, Comp Aimpoint, Vertical, Angled, Folding, Stubby, Muzzle Brake, Compensator, Laser, Green Laser, Canted sights, and the Bal Trak.
Now before you lynch me for allowing the BT, I'm suggesting the rifle starts out with Iron Sights, then acquire the PMII scope at around 100 kills. When equipped with the scope, the BT is unavailable to be equipped.
The rifle will be heavy. As in BFG 50 heavy. Reload will be similar to the AW family, except with the AK style 'off hand prime'. The weapon will have high vertical recoil, horizontal recoil won't be noticeable unless you've sprayed around 3 shots. Firing the rifle at it's maximum speed will make it inaccurate.
TL;DR VERSION: M249 as a low recoil LMG with high horizontal recoil and slow recenter time; M249 STANAG- M249 with 30 round mags, faster than the M249 but with more vertical recoil and less horiontal recoil; M82 as a slow, heavy hitting DMR that 1HKO to the head at all ranges
@holygaming no HMGs please. Most of them usually are high caliber, high capacity (maybe 100+ rounds?) and not very mobile. I doubt you can walk and fire one either.
Heres an excerpt of what a HMG is: HMGs are designed to provide better penetration and destructive power against vehicles, infrastructure, and aircraft beyond the standard rifle calibers used in medium or GPMGs.
Meaning this might be more powerful than the belt fed LMGs in game.
Mate, No Russian can't be added because it's a scene frm MW2 that was controversial to everyone, and adding it to an environment with children as the minority won't help. And 20 min damage with a 1k firerate? Screw the Vector and the already-in-intense-trauma Colt SMG 635 I guess.
And, again, read the message I posted above. Thank you for your cooperation.
New sniper rifle maybe - someeething... Modern - like:
-m40a3 / m40a5 (looks better by front accessory rail)
-Bor rifle (bullpup)
-SSR (Desert Tech Stealth Recon Scout)
-GOL Sniper Rifle
-Big-Mac - MacMillan TAC 50
(but i guess there is enough .50 cal gus for now)
Sorry for the long list but i'm really hoping for something new, scout isn't so bad but i guess there is still a place for a sniper's cherry on top :0
Am I the only one who thinks the Martini-Henry rifle would be cool?
Martini Henry - Similar to the BFG and Henry .45-70, would be similar to the Henry in terms of damage. Has higher muzzle velocity than the Henry at the cost of reduced mobility and/or ADS speed.
M249 - Somewhat a hybrid of the MG3KWS and M60. Stronger than the MG3 but weaker than the M60. Velocity is slightly lower than the M60, but close. Fire rate is approximately in the middle of both weapons. Mobility is slightly higher than the M60, but still low. High Muzzle flash. Great penetration abilities. Good suppression.
Tar-21 - Similar to the HK416, but with greatly reduced ranges, higher muzzle flash, and slightly reduced velocity. great ammo reserve, good suppression, and reload speed. A very agressive AR.
HK417 - Higher power HK416 with increased max range, Increased recoil, lower mobility, higher penetration and roughly equal supression to the 416.
Skorpion Z96 in either the pdw or atomatic pistol and it has a fast fire rate and little recoil but damage is low. 20 round mag or 10 round mag. Most probaby with a low ttk with little recoil the stock will be lowwerd on the model as intended .
