M249 LMG = SHIIIIIIIT

#1
I own a Black Art Death Predation and this weapon is a M249 LMG. This gun is shit. The fire rate for one is too high that the hit registration can't keep up, its damage is too little that it only does 6 damage on body shot, 11 on headshot, and 3, on foot/leg/arm shots.
[00:04] ♠ Legend ♣ {WoGs} [innocent] has damaged Logamuffin [innocent] for 3 HP with M249 LMG (Legs/Arms/Hands/Feet)
[00:06] ♠ Legend ♣ {WoGs} [innocent] has damaged Logamuffin [innocent] for 6 HP with M249 LMG (Body/Torso)
[00:06] ♠ Legend ♣ {WoGs} [innocent] has damaged Logamuffin [innocent] for 11 HP with M249 LMG (head)
(note this was a damage test)

Its still is USABLE; however, this is a HIGH GRADE weapon, It is a one in one mill drop with a 33.3% damage increase. On par with other one in one mil drops it is one of the worst. Now, I'm not just speaking for this one weapon but for all, M249s. M249s are a generic amazing LMG that SHOULD be a good weapon.

Fixes: One the fire rate on the weapon should be lowered Drastically. This is because not only does it randomly do 0 damage because the bullets can't register, but IF they did register it would be extremely overpowered. Two the damage needs to me improved. The damage is too low, especially for armored people (detectives/traitors). The headshot multiplier is fine on a its self but the total damage needs to be improved by at least 3-4 points. The accuracy is understandable and okay. The recoil is expected of an LMG. All I'm asking for is to lower the fire rate for damage of the LMG so that its balance. While writing this I felt like I wasn't in a position to write this; however, this is just my opinion on a weapon in the game that needs to be improved. I'm not expecting this to be implemented, but it would be cool. If anyone else finds this post interesting make sure to comment and like.

A lot of weapons need stat buffs, so Jason encourages these types of posts +1

+1 I have a black arts and it's bad. But at the same time, it's good to have bad weapons for the memes.

Reduce recoil, but keep the fire rate and damage values. I only use it to freeze and then headshot them with a secondary when they can't really dodge it effectively.

The M249 light machine gun (LMG), formerly designated the M249 Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW) and formally written as Light Machine Gun, 5.56 mm, M249, is the American adaptation of the Belgian FN Minimi, a light machine gun manufactured by the Belgian company FN Herstal (FN). The M249 is manufactured in the United States by the local subsidiary FN Manufacturing LLC in South Carolina and is widely used in the U.S. Armed Forces. The weapon was introduced in 1984 after being judged the most effective of a number of candidate weapons to address the lack of automatic firepower in small units. The M249 provides infantry squads with the high rate of fire of a machine gun combined with accuracy and portability approaching that of a rifle. The M249 is gas operated and air-cooled. It has a quick-change barrel, allowing the gunner to rapidly replace an overheated or jammed barrel. A folding bipod is attached near the front of the gun, though an M192 LGM tripod is available. It can be fed from both linked ammunition and STANAG magazines, like those used in the M16 and M4. This allows the SAW gunner to use a rifleman's magazines as an emergency source of ammunition in the event that he runs out of linked rounds. M249s have seen action in every major conflict involving the United States since the U.S. invasion of Panama in 1989. Due to the weight and age of the weapon, the United States Marine Corps is fielding the M27 Infantry Automatic Rifle with plans to partially replace the M249 in Marine Corps service.
