Hey.

The M16A3 is an awesome gun. But it gets annoying swapping to the RU Army and US Army and changing rifles every time a new round starts / when you get swapped teams. Maybe this could be fixed next patch?

EDIT: This also happens to Camo's, and to the Russian acquired M4A1, M27 IAR and the MK11 MOD. And the US acquired AK-74M, AKS-74u, RPK-74M and the SVD.
I bought Battlefield 4 Premium just for this feature.

? When you star out the assault class you can equip it as both marine or russian.

Just play the game.

Unless you mean the M16A4. A3 is better anyway.

You missed the point of OP, read again and think.

When you equip the M16A3 for the Russians it makes you use the AK-74M when you swap back to the US

First off it isn't a bug, it is a design flaw.

Because the default (faction based) weapon comes first. And the M16A3 russian is considered an unlock, not the default weapon.

Agree! This should be fixed. This has the same issue with other classes as well

Exactly but they should fix it so if you choose the M16A3 for Russians it should STAY equipped and same with the US side.

Fix camos too its similar issue it never remembers what I picked, always goes back to default when I start the game up new.
Woodland Stripe Camo is overpowered, premium is pay to win.

Agree. Its a bug. Some dev got lazy and probably used the same internal ID for the unlock as the default weapon, so the loadout code thinks the player never selected an unlock and gives him the faction default.

It wouldn't be as big a deal if the Russian default weapons weren't disadvantaged in all ways and pointless to use. Fix that too!
