    lol wut? nothing in the game has any sense or realism at all. Even if we were to go "reatively realistic" the m60 would be used to 1-hit deciamate people from ~900m away and the gustav...well the gustav would just wreck everything and anything it came aross....with the excepting of maybe the t-90 and Abhrams

    I don't get people crying about this, not trying to sound mean either, but I hear it a lot. And I have in a lot of time with the M60, but it is far from my most accurate weapon, and thats with me using the LMG Accuracy equipment on it, all of my Assault weapons have about the same accuracy (and my AN-94 has much greater) and thats without using their respective Accuracy Equip, most of my Eng guns have better accuracy, and of course Sniper Rifles. Out of guns that I actually use, the M60 is pretty low on my accuracy list.

    Either way, I highly doubt you will be seeing any significant change in the M60. The gun has a very slow rate of fire (slowest automatic weapon in the game) which helps with accuracy, it has massive bullets (which means it should hit harder than anything besides a Sniper Rifle). And Medic is the only kit where (beyond the pistol) your other equipment can't kill people, and you are useless against vehicles. The M2CG is extremely popular, most Assaults play with the noobtubes as primary weapons, and Snipers have motion mines for close quarts or they hide. If they nerf the M60 (which makes no sense the gun should be that way), then there is not a point in playing Medic, it just seems everyone wants to soak up the health packs, get revived, but they feel that Medics shouldn't have the ability to kill as well as the other classes. Which is what Medics were in BF2, and that was very disappointing, I'm really glad they changed it up.

    If they nerf the M60, then I would expect the PP2000 to be nerfed and the AN-94, which covers 3 out of 4 kits that need a weapon nerf. Anyone with those 2 guns that is competent should be able to take out a Medic with an M60 and close or medium range without an issue.

    honestly what Ive come to understand about this...and i hope this doesn't offend anyone and if so mods please just delete my comment and don't ban me :D:ohwell::(....If your complaining about weapons...you suck at the game, simple as that. Instead of adapting and creating strategies to deal with something that aggravates you in a game most people simply resort to whining about it till it gets nerfed. I dont understand it as I can take almost any gun and attach a 4x on it and simply have a blast. My second favorite gun after the UMP is the 9A-91 AVTOMAT...which is regarded by many as one of the worst guns in the game....but i fell in love with it the second i started running as engineer. The only thing any kind of nerf is going to do is offset the class balances, if the m60 gets nerfed i bet most medics stop playing as medics..switch to assault and start noob tubing, then noob tube will get nerfed and so on and blah blah blah.

    The worst part about all this is now dice is going to start changing shit, and its this point in time that i normally leave games, i dont want to but if theres any drastic changes i will have to move on :(

    I agree, I feel I am competent with any kit out there, I just don't enjoy them as much, but I feel I can use most setups quite effectively, and when I run out of ammo, I usually grab whatever is there, and have come across situations where then I run out of ammo with those kits.

    I still say there won't be some huge M60 nerf, if there is I will be sad, my playstyle doesn't fit with the other LMG's, they just fire too fast for my taste, I like to just shoot off single round zingers from the M60 here and there, the other guns I feel the need to conserve ammo more as they all fire faster.

    Well I love the M60 now that I unlocked it but Ill tell you this.....it needs to be nerfed in HC. Not in power or capacity but accuracy. I'm sorry but in real life an M60 in a combat situation is no way more accurate than an M14 or M4. Why? 1. Barrels. The M60 uses cheap DISPOSABLE barrels that have nearly no rifling.

    Anyway thats all besides the point but I could go on a rant for hours about how inaccurate any game is. My main point is a I love using the M60 but no other weapon can remotely come close to it in game. That alone says it should be nerfed. To put in quake terms its a BFG with the Quad perk.

    Hmmm ... I wonder if there is another way to nerf the M60 (and others), rather than reducing it's power or accuracy?

    How about instituting gun jams into the game. You know, like in Far Cry 2 where the gun jams more often the longer you use it. I wonder if a mechanism like that could be introduced, whereby after a certain number of rounds have been shot by a person through a particular gun, it starts to randomly jam, requiring a reload or something like that to fix. Similar things could be done to the 40mm GL and CG - perhaps they could explode in your face if you use it too much?

    But yeah, I'd prefer them leave them as is.

    (I haven't really played hardcore, so can't comment on that)

    I just dont like the gustav and 40mm GL because they're too easy to use. I guess it's OK to have these weapons so less experienced people can pop off a few kill in a round. I'm much more interested in proving my assault rifles are faster and more accurate than the other guy's. I don't understand so many people are grinding the 40mm GL as primary long after they have platinum with it. There are just too many other viable and FUN tactics in this game.

    I have no complaints about the M60 (rock) since I use paper. It's a good gun but with the guns I prefer I can usually put 3-5 rounds on target before the second and third round from the M60 can land. I usually come out pretty low on health so I take the guy's M60 and heal myself.

    so I have a friend who bought the game and his comp doesn't run it. he's looking to re-sell so if anyone is interested in buying a copy let me know.


    @Themailman- many guns compete with the m60 especially in hardcore. namely pp-2000 and an-94, (we are of course excluding all noobtubes)

    GL sometime will fail to explode, usually when you shot it too close to yourself. That's fair for me. Now they need to make the rockets less accurate like they are supposed, and increase damage for anti-tank to make up for less accuracy.

    I believe M60 close-range damage has been reduced when shooting non-stop. MG36 is probably a better weapon for me right now.

    Yeah, there are little bits and pieces that can be done to improve things. Last night I got a CG to the face from two metres away and while I died, the other guy lived. That is wrong. If one of those goes off in a small room like that, everyone in the room should die - including the guy's teammates.

    The reason they do not go off at close range is that in RL they have to rotate a certain number of times to activate the blasting cap.

    Can't he just give them his account information and they could use his account ?
    Then all they would have to do is change somethings on the account to secure it for themselves.

    I think it may be possible to alter all that, but I'll just tell him to take it back to the store (and hopefully this time, the return lady will speak English)

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who is able to take out people with M60's by using other weapons that fire bullets.

    Hell yeah new patch :) Shame it comes out before a fix for 4xxx series slow loading times so I can't take advantage of loading before everyone.

    Just thinking about it, they can't be trying the patch out on Steam users first. Because otherwise you'd have users with new weapon balances vs people with the original weapon balance. It wouldn't work. It must be global.

    They're probably waiting for steam to approve it before releasing it on all clients simultaneously.
