Man, I absolutely love the FG-42 as a weapon. Ever since the early days of Medal of Honor, to COD 3 and CODWAW. This game however, I feel as though it could be better. For me it feels as though it has too much recoil for the low damage it deals. The fire rate is so fast you run dry in under 4 seconds, maybe even 3. This would be okay if the weapon melted people fast.
However, this morning I made a breakthrough with this seemingly flawed piece of hardware. I decided to use it as a DMR! Put that **** on semi auto and pick people off no problem. It felt like I was using a suped up M1 Carbine. My experience was comparable to that weapon. Granted you can always just go to the Turner or the Gewehr 43, but if you want to get those challenges done, or simply just have a good time, slap her in semi auto, go prone and **** **** up. When I see people at range, I use it in semi, but when I enter a building or a close quarters are I slap it back on auto. I’m so happy I found a better way to use this gun.
