Yeah the accuracy of the XM8 LMG was the sole reason it was my first platinum star.
So, I just unlocked the mg36, and, why would anyone use the xm8 when the MG36 seems just as accurate and hard-hitting, but with a red dot built in? If anything, it seems a tiny bit more accurate than the xm8. Does the xm8 have better accuracy on the move, or do you just like its irons?
I personally dislike the red dot on the MG36 immensely. I always found myself taking too long to spot the enemy and start shooting. This caused me to become oblivious to nearby targets that I otherwise would have been aware of if I wasn't looking at the telescopic MG36 red dot sight
The MG36 is the weapon of choice for me as a medic. The only time I don't use the MG36 are on the snow maps that have an extreme amount of glare, in those cases, I opt for the XM8. As Razcsak says, I find the MG36 very accurate and powerful.
