So a while ago i was an Ops Mando in a EC NM game and people didn't like the fact that i picked up the HMG that we found very early and they wanted me to give it to the Survival Rifleman. This has been bugging me for a while because I couldn't really see any reasoning behind it as i wasn't close to having T3 yet (found the HMG very early) so i wasn't over leveled or anything like that. I've always thought that we make the class that is good at something, better and more efficient at doing that task. Such as giving the armor to the tank, the arc to the energy intensive class etc. It makes sense to give the HMG to the Ops Mando because it makes it shoot better. Dont bring up the "Mandos should always be using Flamers the whole game" point because there are certain times where the flamethrower simply cannot be used better than a longer range weapon that has a large circular splash. So is there some secret reason for Survival Riflemen getting the priority over Ops Mandos that i dont know about, or is it just my unorthodox ways kicking in again? I hardly ever see Ops Mandos touch the HMG and it makes me sad.
