I have been working toward unlocking the directive weapons for the classes I enjoy most. So far I have done the carbines and the LMG. I am almost done with SMGs. I got to ask here WTF... Directive SMGs come with grip, comp extended ammo and HVA it seems. That is literally the opposite of what you would want on attachments for a smg. Silencer, laser, SPA and to continue the 2 attachments in the rail directive benefit extended mag would be what any sane SMG user would go for. HVA has the downside of further reducing the SMGs very close max dmg range of 6m to a tiny range of 4m (how the heck 2 is 5% of 6 idk). Having no laser effectively makes it a less effective hipfire weapon for an infil than any other choice. The loss of the laser is a real buttkick for cqc as well. No silencer is junk for infils. SMGs are close range guns with the best hipfire in the game. Why the heck would they make the directive reward for this so illogical?? These directive SMGs are worse than any other SMG you could pick because of these wonky attachment options.
