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.
