Would the support be able to get any kind of weapon besides just LMGs MMGs and shotguns during ww2 there have been documented moments of support infantry men using different weapons besides LMGs and MMGs

    In terms of in-game balance they don't really need another weapon type but what do you have in mind?

    @Sir-Smithsonian just some more variety other battlefield title's there was more variety for each class however now it seems that support was left in the dust as they are more susceptible to being picked off at greater distance from ever other class

    I thought that was medic? Have you not tried the Bren gun, or the Lewis gun, or even the M30. And yes, I know of the BA carbines, but they are only slightly better than the awful BA rifles Recon get (mainly because they essentially have straight pull bolt)

    Well recon got that P08 carbine.  Which was different.  Heck Medic got the M28 for long range beyond the SMG's.

    Exactly its eather medium to close range or long range with the expanse of nearly your whole mag even with mmg you could be trying to gun at long range but the chances are a sniper already seen you and is working you into there crosshair

    With the lewis, bren, shotguns, and fg42 I feel like Support can handle pretty much any situation. I wouldn't say no to some variety though, I just can't think of anything new for them that isn't already on another class.

    Wouldnt be new if they let other classes use the same weapons as another (not meaning about the weapons that make that class unice like snipers, LMGs, SMGs, and better verification of assault rifles) but like how bf4 was where every class was able to use a DMR and a lower grade/different variation assalt rifle

    Should bring back Standard Issue Rifles and make it a default setting for servers. Create a new weapon category with their own specialisations tailored for frontline use so these rifles are separate from the Sniper Rifle weapon category in Recon. Brits would get their No4, Germans the K98K. Americans the Garand and the Japanese will get their Arisaka.

    Support is great at every range in this game. Best cqb weapons with shotguns, the Lewis and Bren are absolute beasts at mid range and can drop people at longer ranges. Even then they get the drilling with a rifle round in it.

    UmYaSlender I'd rather not have DMRs as all class again, but I would like to return to BF3's system of SMGs being all class for every class has a CQB weapon to include recon.

    There really isn't much you can't do with the Support class primary selection. I'd recommend exploring the weapons some more and trying out different fire modes and spec paths, like the M30 rifle rounds, FG42 semi-auto, and shotgun slugs. And if you really want to run with something else, well, nothing saying you can't just switch classes.

    the standard frag grenade as all other classes have it wold be good for Support as well.

    if a class has only one weakness that can be negated by a simple walk to a health station...
    your class is broken same goes for assault for that matter
