Unlocked the StG44 including all specialisations and I have to say they listened to the crybabies and nerfed it to the point where it’s almost no different from any other weapon

I’m fact the KE7 is the new n00b weapon. FFs dice the StG44 is an Assault rifle it really was op in rl. To balance it lower the ammo count but don’t nerf it to uselessness.

    Agreed. You can tell it's been nerfed to the ground when we've 0 threads since the free trial started asking for it to be nerfed to the ground. Every other thread during the beta was asking for its nerf.

    Too bad. It was really fun to use. Now it's garbage.

    Yea apparently they ninja nerfed the STG44 and STG-5 bullet down to a 5 hit kill. The semi auto rifles have a lower TTK and better distance than the STG44, STG-5 isn't too badly nerfed by the damage nerf with its fire rate.

    Just use the 1907 as assault until they sort these and other oddities out (like the decision to blanket buff all the support's weapons (except MMGs) into basically the beta assault rifles but with bipods and much faster bullet velocity).

    Logic right there. STG44 is 5 hit kill and pistol is 2 hit? That is what annoys me most the pistols. I get owned by pistol users more than anything else. I think they need to nerf them and maybe add a bit more time between weaponchange.

    I agree that the STG was a little too good in the Beta but a little too bad now. KE7 can outgun your STG no problem.

    Stg was op. Haven't tried it now though. Ke7 is getting nerfed and SMG's are getting buffed. Also there was no hidden nerfs it was all documented

    If they nerf my FG42, I'll riot.

    Are the launch notes above not for changes already built into the current early access version? Or they're for tomorrow's patch?

    The STG nerf doesnt bother me but surely they wont nerf the FG42, imo it needs extended mags to be viable with that painful reload.

    I believe it was the notes for early access. Though a couple things didn't make it in. (Snap aim thing for counsole) That is coming in next patch. Not 100% sure though.

    What do you mean nerfed? It's an absolute beast and still the best "allround" weapon in the game.

    Everytime I switch to the STG I start killing loads, the way the recoil on this gun works is epic to get double headshots as well compared to other weapons.

    This logic makes my head hurt.

    He means it got nerfed. Your experience with it is irrelevant to the fact that it indeed got nerfed as in made less effective in CQB. They've gone as far to admit that they've overnerfed it and will work on making the necessary changes. You're the one since the beta to say it's still an absolute beast...

    He means it's no longer easy mode like in beta.

    Now he actually has to use a balanced weapon and it's hurting his K/D.

    Umm no. It's NOT balanced. Devs, symthic and players have all come out and said it's over nerfed. The devs said on twitter it will be changed. So do some research first will ya

    It's still strong as hell IMO. The beta version was ridiculous lol. You could pretty much use it in any situation.
