This really isn't a complaint, but it feels like almost every player is using sub machine guns. Literally I can go into a Team Deathmatch and 8 people out of 12 are using a MP7 or Vector.

In the past Call of Dutys, it was definitely a larger lean towards assualt rifle usage. However in this game, it seems that Treyarch may have given SMGs too much of an edge in this game with the way they designed a lot of the maps. People can easily cut corners and unload a fury of bullets before you can even take cover or fire back.

It's somewhat surprising and I'd like to hear you guys' opinion on it.

They are over used but though's are the best 2 guns in the game. Just like Modern Warfare 3 the MP7 and ACR were over used same thing. Not like it makes a difference you can get a shot gun and blow a guys head off with the MP7 or Vector.

SMG's were always like this. Remember the MP40 from WAW?

PDW's with laser sight. Perfect hipfire from any range. People only use SMG's because of map size. Most maps are small to medium and the extra mobility helps. That and every gun on this game has no recoil so you can shoot across the map with them

If the other guns weren't so useless I guess they would use them aswell :/

I notice a lot of people using the Remington shotgun. It's quite annoying.

I'd say it's balanced don't go rushing around with an assault rifle and 9/10 you'll get the kill.. Smgs are made for close quarter domination. Idk just an opinion

24/7 Nuketown is rampant with SMG's, Shotguns and Snipers, pretty much all I ever see there. Everything seems more powerful and easier to use than in previous games. The SMG's are super accurate and very powerful with great range, shotguns extremely powerful and crazy range and sniping to me even seems easier...I use to never use a snipers in other COD's because I sucked at them but in this game I'm going prestige with all the guns.

I agree with you. It's just that they're really good guns.

I encounter SMG's a lot, But i have got to say the most over used one is the one on the already made the "scorpion class", I'm currently using the MSMC and i have to say it over powers most of the guns that i come in contact with.

It's overused because it's class is more better than AR's.

SMG's are the better weapon class. You either use a SMG and do well, or you don't.

I happen to like the FAL and the new M8A1 assault rifles.

I feel it's simply because SMG's are just the dominant weapon type to use.

Reasons why people use them:
-Barely any recoil
-Easy to drop shot with
-Easy to hipfire
-Takes a lot less bullets in this games then previous CODs

I use SMGs all the time and I can defiantly as that the damage in this game is a lot higher then other CODs. You kill with 3-4 bullets. I see this as a good and a bad. A good because it really takes away from knives. I don't think I've complained once about knives in this game. It's bad because it is so easy to kill with the guns. Very easy to kill.

However, I do see some inconsistency that I don't remember in other games. Some kills it will take 3 bullets and the next kill it will take 15 bullets. Quite strange. Maybe it's just my aim...
