One hit kill or 2 hit kill on every other class even the equipment sucks why?

    At mines are pretty strong.
    Shotguns & Mmgs are as well. Even Lmg are.

    Ammo crate resupplies rockets/launcher grenades.
    Support aint bad mate, try playing medic on a large map.

    Support has never had as many viable playstyles as it does in BFV so I dunno.

    The play style of support is lay on ground and hope it doesn't take 30 bullets to kill a guy

    If you play Mmg like that. Support actually git 3 differen weapon clases, all work different. If you choose only to use the mmg and go prone, you might just adjust your playstyle.

    How should I play it then with a shot gun or a 30 runder that can't be controlled running or standing

    O don't forget it takes 3 or 4 headshots compared to 1 or 2 on assault and snipers

    The LMG's are phenomenal, particularly the Bren, FG-42, Lewis and LS. All have manageable recoil while proudly remaining upright.

    Don't be another proner, you're better than that.

    Lewis/Bren/KE7 and FG42 all perform pretty well IMO.
    I main support and these weapons hold their own against Assault weapons with the exception of long range encounters against SARS or CQB with 1907/G1-5 (FG42 is pretty competitive tho)
    No proning involved either.

    You can’t control a shotgun running ur standing?

    Honestly, stop playing. Shot guns require the least control. My fave shotgun move is the death from above, where I literally drop on someone from above shooting them in the head. It’s low skill high fun.

    I’m sorry but your argument is just false.

    This. Using a shotgun is one of the most fun things to do. Pick the cqb area of the map and start shooting whatever moves.
    You could even pick the drilling and deliver serious damage on distance

    I miss the days when support had C4. Support has good guns in BFV but the gadgets are all super boring.

    I do not see that, the support has weapons that basically work like better ARs, shotguns and MMGs which support all playstyles. Gadget wise, the have with the ammo crate and wrench  a crucial teamplay asset, and decent AT gadgets. The AT pistol is often overlooked, but you can basically fire four in rapid succession each doing decent damage, since angles do not matter as much.

    KE7 is my number one gun, I love it. Don't need to go prone to kill people with it either.

    Support is quite the opposite in the class food-chain. They're only slightly behind Assault class IMO.

    LMGs are great. shotguns and MMGs are garbage.

    AT pistol is fine since it can be fired 4 times in a row.

    If you use LMG, you won’t feel that support is weak.

    Shotguns are garbage? You played since they patched them?

    I like the aupport class in bf v. I love the LMGs but the MMGs can also be fun.

    I have no problem ptfo or going on an objective with an MMG.

    yes you need to go prone or use a window etc, but those guys will shred a whole team if you find good positions and keep moving.

    Imo yes.

    used 1 cant remember which, and it was not a ohk up close, sometimes it took 3 shots.

    kinda loses its advantage.
