Like… the Springfield is on the same effectiveness level as a machine gun… except you can wipe down more people with a 20/ 50 / 100 clip-sized automatic gun than with a bolt action rifle with 5 clips…
Since you are superior to us (I mean nobody has such a nice English like you… maybe AchtCola), I don’t need to go further why an automatic gun with similar dmg and more bullets is usually better than a rifle on most situations.
If the whole meta would just deals about dmg, people would complain about the AVT in Stalingrad instead of the Mkb since the AVT has higher dmg. Or why the PPSh is so popular in Berlin and partly even Moscow despite having lower dmg.
And again… you saw more people complaining about smgs and machine guns than about rifles in the old days of early OBT for obvious reasons.
What is the springfeild?
What has the Grand (you probably mean the Grant) to do with rifles on Normandy, lol?
What is this Johnson riffle?
At the same time, you could ask why the M1903 has a bigger dmg drop-off to a point where machine guns do more dmg on 300m than the rifle despite firing the “same” ammo type.
Also, same caliber doesn’t necessary mean same dmg etc. looking at the .45 (Thompson vs. M1911) or the 9mm PP (MP40 vs. P38)…
Long story, short answer: the devs separates gun classes regardless what kind of ammo they have.
Because it works better. The biggest complaints from people about the Stalingrad system who ACTUALLY played Stalingrad (instead of either relying on unreliable third-party claims or people who make pretty vague statements about the past without telling the whole story (either because they wanna manipulate or cause they are blind and ignorant)) were ineffective bipods and the MG drain (mostly in connection to the bipod story).
20 likes says a lot too…compared to two or three likes for you.
Ohterwise… for the meme…
