AN-94 (Assault)
Groza-1 (PDW, i THINK)
Groza-4 (carbine, if not PDW)
L86A2 (Machine gun)
Mare's leg aka winchester (sidearm, two handed, meaning can't be used in water)

AN-94 is good, but nowhere near as good as the BF3 equivalent and the iron sights are beyond dogshite. The only other one i've played around with is the Mare's Leg, which is absolutely laughable. First unlock is a mid range scope, and it's essentially a 2 shot kill. You can play shotgun primary and this thing secondary and be a total all round player. Even more effective than a sniper rifle/shorty 12g combo LOL

Coming from someone who primarily used AN-94 in BF3, it's not that good. I do kinda like the irons though
I think they should copy and paste the Bf3 stats, no matter how OP it it'll be. They made the M16 in Hardline (though it's dead, even autocorrect wanted to type "deadline" lol) much better then the bf3 equivalent.

Well, that's what happens when you make a game no one asked for. Should have just been DLC

I still haven't downloaded the last patch, I'm gonna be waiting forever to play this again.

Looks like BF4 is well on the way to reaching beta status by its 2 year anniversary. :-D

If GTA V hadn't released a few weeks after hardline then some of us would have probably played it longer, must admit ive not played Hardline since 13th April and every time i log into origin its pestering me to spend £14.99 to upgrade to the deluxe version lol.

The guns were so OP in the CTE that they got nerf'd many times, the mares leg isn't ment to be 1 shot kill unless you get a hs within 30 meters, the AN 94 was like a laser u only had to point it towards someone and poof they died.

overall the new patch aint to bad but then again i play the CTE a few hours every week so knew what to expect, many people complaining about the patch have never played the CTE so are shocked at some of the dramatic changes within the patch.

Also, it’s snarky patch notes like this that make me think the DICE devs hate their work:

Quote:So called “Random callouts” improved for own team

Either a problem exists or it doesn’t. If you’ve addressed the problem then you’ve confirmed it exists. Stop being cunts about it.

They did the same thing when people were complaining about netcode. They tried being dismissive of the problem then they had to face up to the fact that their fancy pants game was exuding the pungent aroma of canine faecal matter. Cunts, the lot of them.</Rant>

Big Grin
