Will you please remove this?! I'm sick of running out of ammo, especially at Arkfalls because the stupid guns share ammo. Who the hell even thought that would be a good idea?

It's a pretty common thing.. . not all guns share ammo tho. Pistols and Smg's share ammo. Shotguns don't, nor sniper riffle or infestors..
I think? >_> It's pretty common on fps games

Not only is it common in FPS games, it's common in real life. And if you think about it this is a mechanism to force load outs that make since versus lots of automatics on top of automatics. Right now I'm running a nice LMG with a tactical scope with a pump shotgun on Loadout 1, and Loadout 2 has a tight high mag cap SMG with a infector as back up.

I'm sure this is by design.

I've played tons of FPS games and none of them ever share ammo. Also, SMGs and pistols don't. SMGs, LMGs and ARs do. It's ridiculously annoying. And the Infector is useless.

Dont use the same style of gun. How do you run out of ammo at an ark fall. All the bad guys drop a ton of it. I always get a messafe ammo full. Try having better aim.

Maybe you shouldn't equip two weapons that use the same ammo pool?

the Infector is NOT useless. those little bugs do a bit of damage. I can tell you it's pretty common for ammo to be shared. Sorry.

SMG's and Pistols usually use the same ammo, they are a smaller caliber than Rifles and LMG's in fact Rifles and LMG's are also different a lot of the time and use different ammo, just like in real life, really need to quit your crying and adapt and diversify your weapons. Too often people come on here and complain and cry about non-issues, grow a pair and get out there and kill stuff.

I use different combos and my aim is fine. Shared ammo is not common in games and if you truly believe that you're an idiot.

@Drkhao: The infector is useless. I don't know what you're fighting but it does barely any damage when I use it.

I don't like that some weapons share ammo but it does fit. SMG, LMG, AR use the same mods too...

one thing that doesn't make sense tho is, LMG's are belt fed, AR and SMG are mag fed... you CAN'T physically use the same ammo unless you pull all the links off the belt which would take crazy long in a fight. would take 20x longer to put the links back in.

and before anyone QQ's about semantics or technicalities. look at your LMG next time you're on. you load the drum, insert the belt and you can see the belt on the weapon.

I believe though in this game SMG, LMG and AR use the same ammo...

I use it on the random mutants, just unload a clip wait for the to hatch (Is the big key there) Then you have a alittle army of explosive termites eating away at swarms. Using it during arkfalls seems kind of okay i guess, the gun it self doesn't do a huge amount of damage, the little bugs that hatch are pretty cool tho
