The problem is the Weapon is totally overpowerd.
I talk only over the Public Servers ( not line Battles if you like ti use it ) if you playing there you have no chance to atack , 10 Riffles hit all , i see and try this every day and loosing the fun and all my Friends too if i talk to there all saying the same.
I can Pick the Riffle in every Game cause i join fast and can Pick the Riffle , it is totaly easy to have 10:1 or 20:1 in a 20 Min Game , you need no Skill for this , but i like it more to Play as Line to have a good Gamefeeling.
If you play as Line you are only a Living Target , if you Atack you die nonstop , and pls , isee this everyday.
You dont must delete the Riffle , cut it to 5 on the Official Server , that would be helpfull for the Game on Public Servers.
Btw try to stay in a Line on a Public Server and you see what will happens than..
