LMG's are just............ bad (in general)
The AWS, MG4 and M249 are the top LMG's and they are just not very good in the grand scheme of things
Compared to the ACE-23 in Symthic Besides a fire rate just 30 rpm higher and a larger mag size These weapons are worse
IN EVERY SINGLE WAY!!!
(I know this isn't real life)
The recoil on LMG's is horrible. But in real life most assault rifles and lmgs shoot the same round.
Therefore recoil should be less on LMG's due to the massive weight of the gun counteracting the recoil.
The spread on LMG's should be better due to the longer and heavier barrel.
Why is it that in (almost) every single game LMG's are given the short end of the stick
In real life they are MORE accurate than any assault rifle but the trade of is that the gun weighs a ton and is hard to move around.
My suggested fix for these weapons is that they give them much greater accuracy but also give a movement penalty when they are held.
Now to address the camping problem caused by the slower move speed.
Grenades/airburst/snipers/One hit kill shotguns/rockets/flanking/spotting/ANY form of teamwork/take a different path
Camping is annoying but it's not really a problem considering how many ways there is to counter it .
we don t play with the same LMG it seems...
You had better be using those LMGs with a bipod like a real man
LMGs are fine.
If you're new to BF4 and getting frustrated about higher ranked players: http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf4/forum/threadview/2955064791787286915/
LMGs are not meant to be as good as assault rifles...
Stop comparing the 2.
They're fine right now, try changing how you use them.
DICE aren't all-knowing; they're just people. Maybe the solution you've come up with is better than what they've come up with, and if you don't let them know about your idea then they're going to implement the one they came up with and not know any better.
LMGs have added suppression compare to assault rifles.

LOL. OP is crazy.
LMGs are perfect. They aren't meant for run and gun; yet they are still really good at that. Bipod and suppression are the best things on these guns. You can literally lay waste to people when in a choke point. SniperLMG.
You want them to be... buffed?.. Okay then. You want LMGs to be better than assault rifles and promote camping? You're literally a biased support user. That's it.
I used to think that too
Until i went heavy barrel+stubby+laser combo on all LMGs and realized i just have a 100 bullet laser accuracy assault rifle that kills in a second and suppresses entire server
in the CTE suppresion is removed and it seems it's not coming back
so that means lmg need an accuracy buff ( less spread and less recoil ) becouse theyr whole existance is missing : to provide suppresive fire.
LMG's are amazing. they are the only guns i've used in this game. If you buff them they would dominate every at every range besides extremely distant snipers or shotguns in CQC . if your having a difficult time using them try switching up your playstyle. either put on a bipod and wait around choke points or use 3-5 shot bursts with a potato and flash hider/ suppressor depending on the gun
LMG's are fine, but they need to reduce the spread while moving a little bit 'cause it just terrible.
Someone patch me 'cause I'm op. :)
Almost all LMGs need less horizontal recoil.
Lasers pew pew.
Use the RPK-74, QBB, RPK-12. These guns should fit you. At least they fit me. All the other ones should be used with a bipod in my opinion, unless you are great at controlling recoil, which I am not due to Ps4, so don't bch on my comment.
The only LMG that needs tweeking is the RPK-74M since it is in the same role as the U-100 but is statistically inferior to it. http://symthic.com/bf4-compare?U-100_MK5_vs_RPK-74M
Disregard the authorities, acquire cheesecake.
If you want run n gun try the PKP.That thing is so easymode
My M60e4 begs to differ OP. If I can nail someone in the head from 100 meters away outside of OP locker, they're fine
If you keep sitting on that hill you're going to catch a bad case of knife in your neck.
Try the rpk_12 with flir,laser,heavy barrel and vertical/ergo grip and smoke nades and using single shot and tapfire.
Recoil is easy to control after a little practice so using the vert/ergo will give you much better spread while moving(only draw back to lmg),use smoke nades at hotspots and at corners and you will drop players at nearly any range.
