So what does everybody think of the weapons? I finally got a PS4 of my own so I've started to play a bit more seriously. So far I've just played assault, and am about halfway through the weapon unlocks. I like using the Scar-H and M416, although I haven't really given the other weapons much attention. A few questions:
-what are some of the weapon standouts among all the classes? -is the ACE 52 CQB the only gun I should use? -how the $%#! can I open hatches from below once they've been closed? -are there any standouts among the handguns?
Feel free to share any other useful knowledge

My opinion on these weapons is that they're dank, yo.
A Weltanschauung of Joie de vivre. "Ah, you miserable creatures! You who think that you are so great! You who judge humanity to be so small! You who wish to reform everything! Why don't you reform yourselves? That task would be sufficient enough." - Frédéric Bastiat Always looking for le mot juste.
-The RPK has been nerfed compared to its BF3 counterpart, T88 sucks, quite a few PDWs suck, most semi-auto shotties suck. I can't really say what's OP just yet. -DMRs are not worth using unless you're an engi and are in desperate need of a long-range weapon for some odd reason.
-Magnum or M1911 w/ 3x scope seems to be a popular choice in pistol-only servers because nobody expects a pistol being used as a long-range weapon. Beyond that the 93R/G18 now take 6 shots to kill up close and are borderline useless. There is no reason to use the QS92 or the M1911, and the mid-damage pistols (M9, CZ, P226, MP443) seem to be used the most.
The L85 is great, it's a bullpup version of the old M16A3 with more recoil so that's good. The MTAR and MP7 are pretty low recoil weapons for compared to the other weapons in their respective classes but for some reason you don't see them too much. The l96 is a bolt action. The RPK-74 is terrible
Thing you should note though is that the stats aren't made by the usual guy who made the stats (demize99) so probably most of them were made in a hurry and are not final
Yeah, hard to say since all the stats aren't known yet. That said, The L85 is amazing. 800RPM and bullpup? Best non-SCAR AR in the game imo. MTAR is 900RPM and bullpup, and if its BF3 incarnation is anything to go by, it still reigns supreme as THE close range carbine. MP7 is probably the same, aside from the free extended mags upgrade. RPK-74 is steaming pile of crap. I was really hoping it would turn out to be a 34-25 or 34-20 damage option, but it doesn't seem to be the case. It's just a worse RPK-12, which is already mediocre. The L96 is a bolt with the standard damage model; nothing else to say.
The shotguns are very unreliable. You can be 3 feet away and your reticule square on center mass and not get a 1HK. It makes the pumps fairly useless. I found the Saiga to be the best shotty. Only a couple maps that they make sense anyway. Flood Zone and OP Locker.
