What do you think?

Pros - huge magazine size, high power
Cons - slow movement speed, slow reload, slow aiming, high recoil

I'm wondering if anyone uses these and if so what they think they achieve that can't be done with an AR?

they DO have their uses they don't run out of Ammo often and not as much reloading as other guns and very high powered but it's all about personal preference i suppose

From my tests they're just too slow to aim to be any good close-range (plus they slow you down) so I thought I'd try putting an ACOG on an M60 and using it like a sniper rifle because the damage is so high, but the recoil is INSANE.

That's not a good idea. LMG's are good at long range but with an ACOG that would be difficult to get kills with. Try the grip it lowers the recoil.

Ive destroyed people with the rpd. While no where near my fav. weapon they do have uses, especially for shooting down choppers

RPD = Monster.

The RPD eats through anything.

RPD is a killer gun in both Modern Warfare games, once you know how to use it.

RPD on Shipment is perfect. I can pretty much get 100+ kills every headquarters match while using that gun.

RPD is by far the best. SAW isn't too bad, but the M60E4 has the worst iron sights i've ever seen, and due to no fault of the game, but of the US military making a shitty weapon. The best thing to do in my opinion is put a grip on the LMG's, except the M60 which i'd put a sight of some sort on.

The poll says it all at 11-0. I personally love the AUG-HBAR with grip, sleight of hand, and stopping power. I know many others who prefer the RPD and destroy with it, so I would say that LMG definately have merit.

When shooting at multiple targets they definitely have their uses!

Going for gold on the MG is really hard, the M60 has a crap iron sight, so the grip is hard to use, and with the red dot sight it has too much recoil. Now if i had bling....

RPD = Win
Saw = Meh
M60 = No

I'd still rather have my M40 or M16

I have an RPD + Stinger set up for when air support is called out.

its pretty good to be honest just incase the 2nd stinger doesnt quite blow it up just drill the full clip of RPD into it and good riddence :)
