After 6+ months off. Probably lots and lots of changes since November. It's hard to stay away from the franchise too long. As disappointing as BFV has been there's still nothing like it.

What are the current meta guns?

I beat Sekiro, Bloodborne, Dark Souls 2 and 3, Nioh 1 and 2 the past 6 months lol.

    I honestly don't see any meta guns.   Sure some guns are certainly more popular than others, but I don't consider those popular guns to be notably better than other options.

    In general I feel the guns are pretty decently balanced, though I'd still vote for the Assault SAR's as the best guns in the game.

    I’d say something like this:

    Medic: Type 2A, Suomi, Thompson, M3 Grease Gun

    Support: BAR, FG-42, shotguns

    Assault: SARs, M1907 SF, M2 Carbine maybe

    Recon: Model 8, ZH-29

    Sidearms: MK IV Revolver, Model 27, M1911, P38, P08, Ruby

    Weren't all of these considered the worst after the 5.2 patch ?

    Depends on specs. FG42 has a 670 rof, and if you go left and then all right with a 3x scope you are crazy accurate. I disagree with the bar. M1907SF deletes close up and is somewhat accurate. Sym.gg will give you the necessary stats, though.

    Still everything with 3x scope without glint, twhich should not have been in the game.

    Do you have this phrase saved as a keyboard shortcut?

    And a more serious question did you have the same issue in BF1 as I dont remember the posts?

    Which full automatic with 3x scope without glint laser accurate weapon was in BF1?
    BF1 was far more balanced in everything, not just weapons.

    3x scope without glint laser accurate (semi-) automatic weapons is what made BF V a constant Zerg and camp game with frustrating 1 frame deaths at mid range.
    And they are still by far the current meta and strongest weapons in BF V.

    Agree with @NLBartmaN
    3 x scope for almost all weapons is the worse idea ever. The game becomes a semi sim sniper game.

    Dont disagree and have a reply to his post waiting for approval but I do disagree if you are comparing with BF1 when that game had as many scopes. I mean I reckon there have been more complaints about getting lasered by SMGs(this never happened btw) and these have no scopes(unlike in BF1).

    A lot of the complaints are a legacy of the games early life where there were clear visibility issues and a TTD bug, for me much of that has been solved for a while and feel thte differences between the latest two BF games isn't that massive.

    The two game are very different and hard to compare for many reasons and not just the scopes. BF1 had scopes but not like BFV and it was also easier to use iron sights. I liked to use Iron sight in BF1, especialy with the BA, but in BFV i feel forced to use scopes. A ww2 game where most are using scopes are a little odd imo and do make people shoot from the distance instead of getting in the cap zone.

    Well I cant argue that weapons are a bit more accurate in BFV but I definitely dispute laser accurate. If you are using  3x on an  automatic weapon there is plenty of recoil and only good players are lasering people, most out there are struggling to hit 20% of their shots and at 50 +  metres it will be much worse.

    As for the SARs again a touch more accurate in BFV but medic rifles with or without scopes are still immensely popular, great at range, and have no glint in BF1.

    Bren with 3x Scope has hardly any recoil, really underrated

    M1907 is an actual laser beam with some recoil and M2 is the same with less damage and less recoil

    BAR is unstoppable in the right hands, FG-42 is pretty good, shotguns are shotguns

    For  the Medic class you can add the fast firing ZK and jungle carbine, although they definitely require more skill to use than 2A and Co, they can do a lot of damage in the right hands

    The Zh has always been a noob cannon

    ZH is really good right now. I'm marginal at recon and even I can get kills with it when using the 3x. Some claim its OP, that's debatable.

    The Type 100 for the medic class is the premier "aim down sight" SMG in my opinion as a medic main.

    Keep in mind that one headshot with the M3 grease gun yields a 2shot kill up close.

    I just had a crazy round on Devastation Conquest.

    37 kills with MP34 :smiley:

    Never killed so many before in a round, I think, and the enemy team had some really good players.

    Sorry OP, this was a little OT, but sometimes, if a gun feels perfect to use for you, it’s stats are maybe less important, simply because it fits your playstyle etc. so well.

    MP28 is underrated imo. 50 rounds fast rof and insanely accurate hipfire.

    I caved in and bought it on pc for 8£
    I thought the cheating was blown out of proportion (I was very wrong)
    The clairvoyance of some of the players is outstanding lol.
    Capping a flag and watching players through a window run directly at you like a moth to a flame is hilarious.
    Then you have these homing grenades that seemingly land one foot from your nice hidden position lol and out of all that ground you use to cap a flag it conveniently lands basically in your lap!
    This game is comedy gold
