Support class mainly has a lot of LMGs which are very handy to provide suppressing fire. LMGs are medium to long range combat weapons. These weapons have large magazines. However, don’t expect to shed much bloodshed on the field as the damage output of these weapons is low. Your task is mainly to provide covering fire for your team’s assault and medic class. If you are looking for kills, don’t use this class.

Stay close to your teammates as much as possible. Accuracy of these weapons is low as well so do not fire continuously. Use short bursts of fire. Try to avoid encounters with enemy assault or medic class. When moving, do so with vehicles around you and always have your back covered. Use the gas bomb to flush enemies out of buildings. This class is probably the most active class in the game so do note that you will have to be working to provide covering fire all the time.
