Why is the STG-4 in with the Rifles?

I was under the impression that the 'rifles' were semi-auto. But I have just unlocked the STG-44 which not only looks like an SMG, but its also 'fully auto'.

Is this is a mistake? Surely this should be classed as a SMG?



Remembered (1979 - 2009)
It's an assault 'rifle' so I guess they chucked it amongst the single firing rifles instead if the smgs.

Does stand out like a sore thumb tho :D

yeah thts right it is what would be classed as an assault rifle today. the submachine guns use pistol rounds which dont have the range of the rifles so are more close quarters, semi or automatic rifles have a longer bore for longer range and accuracy.:smashin: it was one of the best weapons of its day and still is in waw (if a little weak)

The STG44 has a rifled barrel so it's in the rifles category.
