I've seen a few posts from time to time about LA lacking something in their arsenal to give them better balance vs other classes. Now, I'm not an advocate for LA (not that good at playing LA either, though I try from time to time). Nor am I a nerf/buff spammer. But here is a genuine question: Should LA be able to use the assault rifle? In real life it was designed as a lighter version of a standard rifle that combined a bit of SMG rate of fire with a bit of better range/accuracy of the rifle cartridge......seems a perfect choice for light (fast) assault function. And maybe give LA class a bit more punch? I realise that there is a trade off between game playability/balance and real life. As a relatively new player I also realise that this might be an old,old topic that I just haven't gone far enough back in the posts to see (and I just realised I could have used the search box first but hey, I've typed it all out now). Apologies if this is a naive or out of date question.
