The FAMAS rifle in the Battlefield 3 DLC Back to Karkand is going to get nerfed, according to lead designer Alan Kertz.
According to the developer in a "After playing with and without fore grip on my FAMAS, not sure I could nerf it enough lol. Hmm, this one is a biiiiiiiiiit OP.",
The reason the FAMAS rifle's imbalance went through without being noticed was due to Kertz not being around to make sure it wasn't overpowered. The DICE weapons expert explained, "I was on vacation, I think the Back 2 Karkand team did a great job without me, and the FAMAS just demonstrates that the foregrip is OP. It's the only accessory without any downside. Given that the FAMAS is very difficult to use without the foregrip, I can't really blame the team on B2K for having an item from the base game OP one of their additions. We'll get this sorted out and in the mean time, it's still only good at mid to close range."
Are there any other weapons or gadgets that are too imbalanced in Battlefield 3? Let us know what you think.
