    Heavy barrel not only increases accuracy but it also cuts recoil but i can understand they do this for balancing purposes.

    I’ve notice far more recoil when using the heavy barrel(at least on the p90). when the opposite should occur. I shoot real guns for recreation and know through experience(not video game experience), that shorter, lighter barrels produce more recoil, not the other way around. Stability is not lost yet in bf4 it is, and drastically. You’d think a game developed around ballistics would know something about it. I just don’t see where they got that it adds recoil. It would be like a heavier object being thrown farther than a lighter object via equal applied force, it doesn’t make sense.
