    They did something to the UMP. It is a much better weapon now. I will stick with the AK-74u because it fires faster, does the same damage, has the same accuracy, but has a larger clip. While 5 bullets seems like a small price, the game works in clip counts, not bullet counts. So everyone defaultly gets 3 clips (Recon Rifles get 5 or 6 I think). So UMP vs. AKu is - 15 bullets. depending on distance and game mode, that is 1 to 3 extra kills out of the gun before you go dry. You know....assuming you shoot like me.....well.

    Somehow, even thought the AK74u should for all intensive purposes be better than the UMP as it is stats wise, for me its missing something and just isn't quite as effective.... Very odd.

    My only guess as to the reason for this is that the lower rate of fire on the UMP results is less automatic fire deviation over time and so you land more hits for a given time period firing at a target.

    Wow, all the low ping servers in my area all show:
    0/16
    0/24
    0/28
    0/32
    Ever since the patch was released. I thought about waiting a few days but they are still empty. Nearly all my favorites are empty :shadedshu

    Pretty much, only HC mode servers are worth to play.

    i hate HC with a passion in BC2, but i'm not finding all servers empty... it just seems that the clan servers mostly are, and everyones sticking on the laggy main ones (all telstra gamearena servers lag. its cause they suck)

    I've been playing mainly Assault, and I've come to love the AN-94-magnum-RDS combo for its stopping power and accuracy:cool:

    Played a bit of Medic (so easy to level up lol) and recon too, but for some reason the Engineer class really doesn't appeal to me. I am tempted to start playing engi just to get the CG. Then I could visit retribution on some local server regulars who've made me target practice dummy for their CGs.:cry::mad::cry:

    Anyways, what's the shotgun + perks of your choice? I rarely use shotties, except for the 40mm attachment to the assault rifles, so I am not really familiar with those. But lately, due to my sucky sniping skills, I find that shotgun + recon balls (free points lol) suit me better....it's just a question of picking the right gun.

    I like the Saiga + extra shottie ammo. Try using it on Panama Canal as part of the Engineer kit. You can spend almost an entire round running between points A & C - because there is lots of building cover between these two points you'll rarely be caught in the open where you'll be at a disadvantage due to the Eng's kit's lack of range. Plus there are plenty of vehicles in Panama Canal to blow up (use the tracer dart).

    I hadn't used the Eng kit much until recently when it was the last of my kits to need leveling up. Now I love it. Have played as Eng probably 90% in the last week, whereas previous I floated between different kits for different situations.

    People spams GL or rockets because guns are too weak in BC2 (a lot less in HC mode). I don't see people spamming them in MW1.

    The general idea is needless explosives at close range.

    I think they could reduce this a bit by switching on team-kills for the 40mm & CG.

    The M60 has been hit way to hard with the nerf stick, any Medic using it now is spamming because it takes as much to kill at range with it as it does for engineer guns to (when it has much larger bullets and much slower rate of fire). Seems the best choice now is MG36 with Magnum rounds, need the Magnum rounds otherwise it just lacks the power too, and the accuracy now for all LMG's is pretty bad, seems to be I'm only hovering around 12% with all of them.

    Before patch though, I would have agreed.

    They really need to fix the CG. I am soooo tired of being shot in the face with it from 3 feet away and the shooter doesn't take any damage.

    On a positive note I finally got my KD to 1.21! I know if I started over I would be very close to 2.0 but I'm not starting over..
