This isn't a fault of the players, but the game mechanics themselves.
DICE has dumbed down to the game to a point where it's a run n gun arcade shooter. The core game mechanics encourage this style of play, not 'tactical' play.
The issue yo…
You're playing the game with a controller 'legitimately' is the 'problem'
Go look up ChronusMax Battlefield 5 Scripts
It'll soon be very obvious the difference between what you do and what these 'pros' do.
So many people brush this…
If you don't have a XIM or ChronusMax on console and want to 'compete competitively' you're going to be in for a bad time.
Whilst PC has aimbots/wall hack cheaters, console is awash (especially among clans and competitive level gami…
If I'm on a side that's getting smashed by aircraft I'll jump on the AA to try and stem the flow a bit, but I find the AA tends to be a little vulnerable to direct attack from Air.
There's a reason why good pilots won't deviate from AA positions and…
I'm a Support MMG 'main'
I take a fixed position where I can because that's how you get the 'most' out of your weapon. MMGs are designed from the ground up for this style of play.
It's not perfect. There's been a number of changes from previous Ba…
This in itself speaks volumes about the spec and why most people hate it.
You have to take this weapon and get fixed & placed on an unsuspecting flank to get the 'most' out of it.
That goes pretty much everything against what th…
Try the Lewis Gun and you'll see what I mean.
You've still got 100 rounds for all the 'suppression' you can eat, without the MMG drawbacks.
I'm not saying that the Lewie needs a nerf either, it's a perfect representation of how the Support …
Dude, not even 300 kills with a MMG isn't what I'd call a 'MMG main' - yet (Image)
I'm just being cheeky!
I love the concept of the MMG - but I loathe the implementat…
Dude, not even 300 kills with a MMG isn't what I'd call a 'MMG main' - yet ;)

As much as it pains me to say, I think you're absolutely right here. Mechanically, the MMGs in this game straight up are not fit for purpose and their implementation in BF5 just cannot find the right balance. With Suppression removed, you …
I started out hating BF5 pretty badly actually. There's so much about the launch state that left me very unimpressed and indeed, some of the design decisions and choices (from female characters in the game to the way MMGs were handled with the supp…
Let me stop you right there sport.
The MMGs in this game do not even remotely come close to resembling reality.
I've been a main MMG /LMG player since Battlefield 3.
Since Suppression was nerfed back to the stone age and standing accuracy t…
It's not that. I've just gotten to the point where I've given up trying to even discuss the issue for the most part as it's a lost cause.
The console manufacturers don't care - the game developers don't care - too many players (many who e…
Rework the MMG balance / Suppression system.
I get it that the core of the playerbase hates the old Suppression model, but it was ultimately necessary for heavy machine guns to fulfill their role and not be sniper bait.
In Battlefield 5…
Whilst I have no doubt that the BR mode will be well received and no doubt a fun diversion, I think it's just one of many design errors for this game to appeal to the core playerbase.
If I want to play BR, I already have PUBG, Fortnite and…
The game is dying down under atm.
Australian servers (all game modes) range anywhere from about 3 or 4 in the weekday early hours to peak around 15 or so servers on a weekend.
That's all servers - all game modes and very often, you cannot even fin…
If this is clan PTFO from Australia I can confirm they both focus purely on KDR and you have to have a XIM/ChronusMax to join.
I know because I asked one of their members in the past if I could join their clan and was told this is a requir…
