I see where you are coming from, but pistols are meant to be weaker. The issue is that people tend to find a rifle before they find a pistol, so long as they look in the right place, so pistols naturally become obsolete in combat. Although most people have always used silenced pistols to kill zombies so I wouldn't say they are that useless..
Please don't make it Utes, Utes is a tiny island with literally one airfield and a village. Plus correct me if im wrong but Utes has a CDF garrison on it aswell. Maybe @Major can confirm? Despite that, Im all down for a separate hive with this island based in another location, by god this community needs something new that people might actually stick with. xo
Hence why we make suggestions. Im gonna say +1 honestly, ik you can just switch your weapon around to peek but it will be interesting if you need to hold a corner, overall it should make PvP more realistic and less running around like a mad man gatting people from 5m away with an MP7.
