Good all-rounder with best damage at the longer rangesMP7:
High rate of fire bullet sprayer, might be fun but low damage according to Symthic stats...UMP-45:
Thinking this will be good. Best damage up close, but kind of a "thumper".
I like to use these with Recon or Support sometimes. Any advice?
I tried the MP7 once... I ripped a full magazine into someone's back from about 6 feet and he didn't die...so I'm kind of unsure about that one. Could've been operator error though
I know I'm a bit out of place, and I'm no pro, but I game on PC, and I just happened across this thread while checking out other forums on AVS...had no idea they had a gaming forum. O_o
In any case, I've used the MP7, UMP, PP-19, and P90 quite a bit, usually as Recon, and this thread got me to retry the PP-2000 (tried it before a long time ago and didn't like it), and try the M5K.
As others have said, I'd say the weapon you use changes depending on what map you're on. For close quarters, I think the MP7 with extended mags would be my go to weapon, with the P90/PP-19 coming close behind. For medium range, I'd take the UMP, with the PP-2000 a close second. I liked the PP-2000 more this time around, and it definitely improves once you slap extended mags on there, but for me personally, the UMP just feels better. I only used the M5K a little, and it seems like it could be pretty solid with extended mags as well. Suffice it to say, you really need extended mags with these guns because of how fast they chew through ammo. All of that being said, I think they're all good guns depending on your purpose. I know people often harp on statistics to say that this gun is better than another, but really it's all about what feels best to you and what suits your play-style best.
I threw this together yesterday after I tried some weapons again, so you can sort of get an idea as to what my play-style is in close quarters with all these different PDWs. I noticed that I'm way more aggressive with the MP7, which makes sense since I like it so much: http://youtu.be/QTolSp-LMlw?hd=1
Sorry for the slightly choppy video. I record at 60fps, but youtube limits you to 30fps. That last title card should have said "MP7 with extended mags" but like I said, I didn't edit much and threw it together.
Also why you see me try to shoot through a wall I didn't know you couldn't shoot through. lol
