LMG>HMG when against infantry.
canister shell depends on the map. great against light vehicles and helicopters.
Pre-ordered BF4 for the PC, considering the purchase of a PS4.

If i'm going to have a turret gunner I'll take guided shell. If i'm alone Canister shell

Canister , the LMG seems like it might have been nerfed? it just doesn't seem as effective anymore since the patch.

I use HMG, you can finish a tank with it when it comes 1/1 battle.

canister.......it can kill infantry and air. And gives you almost instant time between shots when you switch back and forth.

Canister shell, a good all-round killer. The HMG got a buff, but it still gives you too many hitmarkers and too few kills. The LMG doesn't too much damage at all to helos.

Yeah, if there a burning tank with low ''health'' you can use HMG to blow the shit up. LMG wont do that.

HMGs do no damage whatsoever to tanks. I think that what happened was you shot the other tank with the main cannon until it was disabled. While disabled, the vehicle takes persistant damage eventually blowing up. If you were firing you HMG at it at the time, it would seem like you killed it with the HMG, but in fact, you did not.

ignore hmg for dismounts

use lmg if you are good at keeping reticle on target(aim upper body/head)

can round if you find yourself coming across multiple dismounts in a congested area, building, etc.

There is nothing better than Canister if you don't want to use guided.

With thermal as well, you can practically kill dudes 200 meters away from you in one shot.

And ofc its a one shot kill up close too.

Unparalleled.

Cannister shell for me. And i carry a javelin on the bigger maps so if somebody is in the 3rd seat i can hop out and blow shit up, no need for GS

believe me, i'm all for the can round. the game cannot even begin to recreate the experience or the damage that it causes irl. but using the lmg(irl m240 machine gun) is also very effective
