Similar things are said about the UMP and the PP2000. Because both kill their targets, and are generic weapons accessible to all, that people get really irritated by them. The A-91 is stronger than the UMP to me, but it's not a popular weapon since it's Engineer only, so people don't whine about it.

PP2000 is considered really, REALLY good in this game. There are threads calling for it to be nerfed. But you don't share that opinion. See how perspective works? lol

My idea of it being OP is the fact that it can shoot fast and yet still be a 1 shot kill most of the time. Seriously I do great with my bolt action snipers it just gets annoying when a half a team is using mk11 and spamming it :/ Me and lune just went through that lol

Well~ a theme throughout BF3 is that weapons act like weapons. The fact that these weapons are starter weapons doesn't mean they're weak. I mean~ like a lot of games make something like an M16 a starter weapon then make it awful... when in reality, it's a damn good AR rifle.

You can reach level 50 in this game, and main a weapon you unlocked at Rank 3, just because it's your style. Dice set out to make a game where there are no 'lame weapons' that nobody uses. Because when they do that, then everyone ends up just picking the best weapon (Like the M60 for Medics in BC2) because the others are lame and have crap damage.

By making all weapons have their own quirks, bonuses and strengths and having them all be stars in some way~ even a starter weapon can be your preferred weapon.

In BC2, I knew a ton of Recon who actually stuck with the M29 for 24/7 use~ so it's not that different there either.

I personally love the UMP-45 which is one of the first unlocks of Engineer if I'm not mistaken.

Also love the AK-74u which is the first weapon available for the Russians. applaud.gif

Have you try to force it in cact ? Vsync option in game does work. I have force triple buffering and Vsync in nvcp. Sli smooth sailing here.

For those of you who haven't seen it.
I kinda only discovered it yesterday as I was too busy wanting to blow crap up.

Kind of a neat feature, and us veterans can 'represent' it seems! Now I just need to dig out my BF1942 key to really show off.

It does say that your tags wont show in beta tho. frown.gif

The UMP-45 is an all-class weapon you get at lvl 16. And its OP as hell.

Just use Laser, a 3.4x or 4x scope and flash hider. I usually go around 10k/d with it. No joke.

Do you have your 1942 key registered for veteran status?

If so, I just went to Profile > Edit > Click the dog-tags and pick what you want.
The secondary dog-tags were all 5 games that I had registered for veteran status.

EDIT:That only applies to adding a game to your Origin games list. Not veteran status.
