Lower RoF should equate to easier handling of a gun, especially on those < = > recoil types. There's little in the way of compensating recoil sway on those, simply because one can't tell when the darn thing is going to switch sway direction. ^ > and ^ < guns are far superior for accuracy control. Debate this all you want, < = > does not mean 1 for 1. The gun will pull in a direction any number of rounds and switch in the other direction at random any number of rounds, back and forth. It might be good for short to mid range engagements where the newb might not notice they cancel out, but anyone with a desire for accuracy and control would realize that most TR LMG's and rifles are crap for long range fighting. Aside from carbines, the TR are screwed in their weapons choices. Ironically, their CQC variants are the one direction patterns, making them the easier to control long range weapons. They're RoF is what makes them semi-challenging to handle, and in the TRV's case, the kick is actually weaker to compensate for the ridiculous RPM. It's the opposite for the NC's GD-7F, it's using the 167 recoil values on a 143 weapon. Surprised the TR newbs tolerate their starter weapons as well as they do, while the NC can't stop griping about theirs. Naturally, any VS that even hints at their weapons being UP or unmanageable should be flogged with super-heated rebar.
