That's right. The abuse and stress that comes with prolong, sub-stained fire. Not to mention the abuse and stress that comes with upgrading the support weapons to truly make them a force to be recon with on the field. If you have gone up against a fully upgrade support weapon, you would know what I mean
A true "support" weapon will last longer then an assault rifle on continues fire cause of the way they are built. A lot of the weight of a support weapon is in the gear box. You take the gearbox out and the gun is not that much heavier then a full loaded/decked out metal M4, cause the gearbox is a lot thicker then a regular Ver.2 gearbox to handle the abuse.
Maybe I should have told you this before the rant, lol
