Man, i am finding this to be a challenge. When i play LA my normal strategy is to flank the fight and engage the enemy from the side or rear at what is normally mid-range. The damage drop off of smgs is downright brutal and it takes a substantial number of hits to kill an enemy. Using anything other than a MKV +grip+comp just does not work for me doing this. The cyclone has far too much horizontal shift and the blitz has bad shift and low round damage. Using a supressor makes it pretty tough also due to the added drop and even lower projectile speed....its like lobbing rocks. The weapon mechanics of the SMGs combined with the fairly recent cof jetpack buff to carbines puts you at a pretty huge disadvantage running with a smg. You deal much less damage at range and lose the ability to fire while flying. These things put you at a disadvantage when fighting other LAs as they will almost always be trying to jump flank and I feel tied to the ground because the second i get in the air my cof goes 4ft wide while thiers remains accurate. I try to avoid cqc as a LA unless i am jumping down and ambushing someone. Even then, i have to make sure that i am on the ground and that my crosshair has reset before i can start firing whereas, with a carbine i could have started shooting while dropping. The great hipfire of smgs really is no help when you want to avoid straight up cqc. Have any of you done this objective? Are there any tips you can offer?
