M30 drilling needs an 8X scope

For so long have i played Bf5 and used the M30 Drilling as a shotgun with an added "punch" but i feel that the rifle round is under used simply because the range potential is limited by the scope. The furthest scope you can get is 2x which personally i feel is the only viable option to use when trying to get longer distance kills. I feel a 8x scope would add a lot more variation to the weapon and allow it to be more viable in different situations. The bullet speed could also do with a bit of a buff since i feel that the speed is too slow and unpredictable. I hope to see more M30 drillings out there

    A proper 3x would be nice, IMO, but weirdly I have a very high percentage of headshots with the M30 Drilling. I haven't used it very much, but still out of like 50 kills 40 of them are headshots with the rifle round. I just aim at a tiny speck in the distance and *PING* headshot. Does this weapon have some kind of headshot aim assist or something?

    I also would like to request a fore grip for my mg42.
    And a suppressor for my tank.
    It's been done....https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/7c/M60_tank_w_silencer_1969.png

    A sniper shot gun for support? Somthing that would be super OP in CQ and at long rage? Sure why the hell not. It would line up with every other balance choice DICE have made.

    A 3x would not be out of line. It is a survival gun 🔫

    Yes... I know... so why would you wont to add an 8x or 6x scope to the drilling and make it even more OP at range. The spam of that gun would be legendary.

    since we're asking for silly things, can i please get a bipod for my revolver? 

    ...the last thing this game needs is more scopes.

    No more noob zoom sights. If anything they should remove 3 x zoom and improve 1 x zoom.

    Just what support needs really. Cos they don’t have enough flexibility as is.

    I can understand why most people would believe the M30 drilling shouldn't deserve an advanced scope that would give it ranges at which snipers should have, but the uniqueness of the M30 drilling is limited by the fact that the furthest distance it can see is a maximum of 2x, Clearly the gun already is being used as a sniping tool but honestly i think its not as bad as any other shotgun that contains slug rounds, at least the m30 drilling only has one round for sniping, these other shotguns contain up to but not limited to 5 shots, thats 5 easy headshots kills and with a fast reload really to follow up, the M30 drilling can only fire its one bullet and i feel that the one bullet should feel powerful and significant, it isnt historically actuate but i'm sure EA isn't worried about "changing" there history. I do feel either a 3x or even 4x scope would work. For so long i've had to get my face closer to the screen to actually see what i'm hitting. Some would say the gun is overpowered but no one complains about the boys AT and that has a faster chamber time to the reload needed for the drilling. Therefore i feel that its perfectly reasonable to have a 3x to 8x scope. An added bipod and silencer would also be great ideas as well to add towards the tree of possibilities that the m30 drilling could have, just imagine having an additional 5 barrels all with silencers and a tripod to keep it up right.

    While we’re at it, please make vehicles three times wider so I can mow down more enemy.

    drilling is fine the way it is. adding a scope would make it even more versatile.

    It would still be weaker than the Martini Henry since it does not have the sweetspot.
    Are people so afraid anything that can OHK headshot even if it has a massive animation between shots?
