BF3 Famas Rifle Changes Planned

Battlefield 3 lead designer Alan Kertz tweets about plans to nerf the Famas rifle from the Back to Karkand DLC for Battlefield 3: "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 DICE weapons expert explains on reddit why he wasn't available to catch this prior to release:  "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." Thanks BF3blog.

Yeah I was in much the same position a few days ago on the karkland TDM map. A group of snipers were parachuting and using their...flying robot things (I've never used recon kit) to airlift themselves (FIX THAT BEFORE THE FAMAS FOR THE LOVE OF GOD) onto the central skyscraper on the map and effectively camped the entire game to pieces. I got the hell in and set about mortaring the top of the skyscraper. I never use mortar except to clear out these lazy fuckers. The mortaring set off a giant bitchfest on the part of the snipers. The items and the weapons were clearly tested by people unaccustomed to the sorts of exploits experienced fps players will devise. I imagine a designer/testing department full of gamepads, beanbags and inkjet printouts of cats.
