The STG44 was deemed the best weapon in the beta and rightfully so.


FG 42 was better.

Only reason why StG was considered "OP" was because it was overused. By being the default class's default weapon...

But following BF1, people automatically assume popular = powerful.


I disagree here, while the FG42 did offer a huge damage output it simply lacked the extra 10 bullets the STG44 had. That makes it much more usable in a game where 64 players run around wildly. Statwise the FG42 might be slightly better, but an added ammo capacity of ten rounds is hard to beat.

Just remember those 10 rounds are meaningless, when you are dead.
You have just read a Post by The World Champion and now feel smarter for doing so.

...and it's easy to end up dead if your gun runs out of bullets before you've killed all the enemies. A 20 round magazine is just too limiting in a 1 vs many situation.
