    22-34 damage, 750rpm?… have to point out the obvious here: sounds HEAVILY OP!
    I guess its a mistake. 750RPM calls for less damage, on par with something like m27 IAR (18-25 damage, 750RPM)

    If I get that right, it fires the same caliber as M60? … but I read that it realy has a Rate of fire of “710 (± 50) rounds/min ” (wikipedia). guess they have to take a lower RPM to balance it out. 750 is close to the max (760) of what wiki says, they should rather go below that average of 710 ! -> 660 (= 710-50 = minimum) would still be quite high damage per minute!

    The MK48 shoots 7.62x51mm rounds. That’s the same as some of the Semi-auto snipers in BF4 like the MK11, M39, and the M417. The damage is fine considering what comes out the end of the barrel…..
