Is it just me, or is this gun doo-dooty?
Every firefight I get into I'll get a steady bead on someone and fire first, and they'll bring up their M16A3 or AEK and kill me and walk away with like 12% health left.
700 RPM isn't that good of a fire rate to begin with, it does the same peashooter damage as the non-G3 AR's do, and the thing has a large amount of spread that is magnified immensely by the game's suppression system.
The only way to use the RPK imo is with the FS, and at midrange. It has the lowest recoil of all the mag LMGs, so you might as well capitalize on it. Sadly it doesn't gain velocity with the Hbar, and the L86 is better with it anyway. But yeah, using it in a head-on battle is suicide.

I was playing with it last night to try and get the heavy barrel for it. All my assists were multiples of 24. This happened multiple times so I don't think I just happened to take -1 fall off damage each time.
Does this gun really only do 24 max damage? That would explain why everyone that kills me walks away with a sliver of health. :/

Its an okay weapon. Its kill times are relatively low so close quarters fights are not advised. Its extremely easy to control for an lmg. And with a heavy barrel its accurate enough to perform at typical engagement distances while not bipoded. And when its bipoded it will kill the shit out of people like all the other lmgs.
But the m27 and probably the L86 do this better anyway. With the faser fire rates and whatnot.
