In BF1 I was a medic and was pretty content with the class. I had a nice range of weapons to choose from that allowed me to find a play style that worked for me. When I moved to BF5, I found no real options in Medic weapons as they are all short range machine guns where I was used to a self loading rifle. I gave up playng medic and found greater survivability with the other classes.
I heard that the Medic SMG is going to get a redo and potential buff, but are they going to offer Medics an alternative choice to the SMG? Will Medics get access to the M1 Garand as an example?
