I just got the aurax medal with my trac5-s I'm going to miss the shizzle out of it because of the ubgl, I'm about to start using the Jag, t5amc & the hailstorm as my primaries.

Jag & t5 for the longish & medium side and the Hailstorm for in your face

The LC3 Jaguar is better all around but if you find your self killing things mostly between 0-30 meters SMG is better.

Really its 0-20 not 30. SMGs get bad fast after 20 meters.

SMG get bad after 12m dude!

Lynx was the best to all ranges, so they nerfed it, jaguar was the best, so they nerfed it, the t5 amc sucks bad, so I am still using the jaguar, because I alreadu got auraxis with the lynx.

All my light assault friends uses the lynx, some of them use pump action, noone uses smg.

If you were NC, the Cyclone is worthwhile at 20-30m [pretty much worthless past 40m]. Otherwise, as TR, just stick with a carbine.

Lets face the facts they nerfed all TR weapons. Now a days I only use weapons that are not bound to any faction like the NS-11a as an example because all TR specific weapons sucks compare to them.

I would only recommend an SMG if you are going Infiltrator. The TR have access to some of the best carbines (Jaguar and Lynx) while our SMGs are pretty lackluster.

I don't play HA that mush but... The TMG-50 is good for long to medium range. Completely sucks in hip fire though. The MSW-R is a good medium range weapon that are ok in CQC too.

There are probably better weapons for the TR HA class but as the HA is one of the classes I pleay the least I'm not 100% up to date with all it's weapons.

You basically have to ask yourself if you prefer specialization (SMG) over versatility (carbine) in a weapon. After that you can make up your mind yourself comparing weapon stats.

You are using a worse weapon pretending its not worse in a vain effort to prove a point.
