DICE and Visceral Games are taking into hard consideration what the fans want for "Battlefield Hardline," as the new batch of the most wanted list for the title has been revealed.

Focusing on the weapons this time, the developers have collected new data on how to influence the game balance in "Battlefield Hardline." First up is the comparison of the lethal weapons, with the AKM facing off with the M16A3.

"These seem more balanced that we'd expected-we kind of figured the AKM would beat the M16A3. The M16 has some things in its favor for the beta-it was the default gun on the default class, for starters, which tends to push its use up for sure, and it's easy to learn. We'll keep our eye on these two," 'Battlefield Hardline' lead multiplayer designer Thad Sasser said over at the Battlefield Blog.

The developers have deemed that there is no action needed to be done at the moment, despite what appears to be a subtle OP for the AKM.

The MG36 and the G38C have also received some attention, with the G36c reported to need a little buffing so it can stand alongside the likes of the M16 and the AK.
