I find no words actually how usless this HMG has become. Sure, it got its arc increased last patch what does that really matter when it can't suppress inf? You can hardly argu over if it worth the 260MP from the very start of the game, becouse when okw's Volks got theyer free firegranade package once the truck it's set up it is when it start become usless, OR grens tossing granades from cover almost as long as the Maxims range. Even if you have it in a house a Volk squad can run stright up to it in the line of fire and still be able to toss the granade at it before even get's pin, and im not joking but i seen it even with the vet 1 ability activated (lol). It's not worth mentioning it in late game when Obers and P-gren start poping up. I mean, it's a HMG and should at least give some troubble to take out for inf, the counterpart mg42 can at least give troubble for inf holding a certain point. While it dosent do much of a damage, what benefits does it have really?
Suggestions to improve it(Yeah, improve! Not lower cost, becouse it will still be worthless after 5 min in to the game:
1. Remove the the vet 1 ability and increase its suppress a bit more than the ability does but without have to pay amo for it
2. Make it a 280 MP HMG but with simular supress as the mg42.
