here’s my take on the MG42/MG3KWS on why it’s great
- predictable recoil
- great hipfire
- it will shred in CQC
why it’s trash for you is most likely because you’re using it wrong…
that is why you avoid going long-range, though full auto in medium is still viable for me, at least.
the high firerate makes it superior against most LMGs (RPK, M60, etc) in CQC and you practically have a heavier, slow reloading but bigger mag M635.
actually if you learn how to pull down the gun from it’s insane recoil, its a literal laser. like seriously, I’ll give you the loadout I use and it’s easy to use
though if you hasn’t to avoid having driving you might want to opt for this one
if the MG3 runs out of it in seconds, imagine the Colt M635 with its 1000RPM and 32rd mag. or the M231 with 1250RPM and 30rd mag, or maybe the Kriss Vector with 1225RPM and 25rd mag
of all the 1000RPM guns, the MG3’s ammo lasts longer than the rest
actually I take that back and say the PPSH-41 lasts longer, cus 1000RPM and 71rds per drum. though the drift on it is insane, even with a compensator and stubby grip there’s still a huge amount of drift left in it so you miss more but hell this is about the MG3 so let’s get back on topic
hell, you have 300 rounds extra, practically 6 belts worth of it. tell me that’s not enough?
because of the “high recoil” nature of the gun, and since it does best at RPM, may as well stick to CQC. in fact, try pairing it with an automatic sidearm (MP1911, M93R, G18, TEC-9), so when you out of bullets in a belt, you have 2 choices
take cover, reload and survive for 7 seconds
pull out your pistol and finish off the enemies
I already clocked more or less 400 kills on it, so I’m telling you it’s good based on my experience
