i understand that shooting with machine gun aim isnt very accurate and slowness 2 gives advantage to get more hits connected to the enemy. but things are comepletely different.. if u have slowness 2 u can not pvp at all, and it slows u like crazy so u can get dropped/ganked/shot very fast and easily, i would also like to add that in current sieges there are many people, so many people spamming machine gun actually already makes hell for opposite players. and many shots are get taken. dont nerf its damage or anything, just remove slowness 2 effect. :D
But as that has been said, using "Steve's superhuman strength" to justify him being able to sprint while holding a heavy machine gun is very unrealistic, We are trying to balance guns, not cut the inventory down to legit 1 inventory slot with 3/4 of its stack limit, because. The average man/woman can lift 25kgs.
