Updated for BTK!!!1
Updated per Den's chart.
I have taken it upon myself to do a really simple, short TTK chart for BF3. I have to thank the Den-izens on this board who actually put in the hard work of parsing code and forming images. I just want to add this extra bit.

Things to notice: it would be nice if the guns were balanced. As it stands, there are clearly inferior guns :*( just what I didn't want. They certainly had a lot of things to pick from for balance's sake, but they chose simplicity. Looking at my numbers and recoil numbers from this site and Symthic's site, here are the clear losers (outdone in most every situation):
M60E4 *unless you are awesome*
Every other semi-auto sniper except M417.
What they did: okay, damage really shouldn't be based on bullet. The 74M, 74U, and RPK suffer from a superior fire-rate gun that uses the same round and thus needs to do the same at ~200 RPM less. Good god. Muzzle velocity is interesting and lends itself to helping the weaker guns at range, but again, the velocity is sometimes highest on the best gun in the class. Bleh.
What they could do: man up. Major patch. Give every weapon a unique charge (for RP reasons, let's say guns with lower ROF have higher charge ammunition). That way, DPS can be balanced. Initial tests reveal that you only recover spread when not firing, so a 800RPM gun fired at 650RPM will always be more accurate than a 650RPM gun natively fired at that rate.
That brings up my next point: spread recovery mechanic is terrible. Awful. It leads to most guns being horribly inaccurate after the 5th bullet, unless you tap fire. I actually like this on the more powerful guns, and I think it's a good system, but the combination of that and ROF=King means that there is no reason to use the losers mentioned above.
Illuminati Will Prevail
Honestly, I expected more. You have to be a masochist to extensively use the above weapons. It's pretty close to a fact. :*(
For your resources, and criticism. Also, if you can spot any errors in the chart, or problems with my analysis, check 'em!
Now with all 9 new weapons from CQ (no SPAS in my chart.)
Now with the pre-Armored Kill September patch changes
