Where Are The Double Drum Magazines?
The AK47 would be complete with a double drum magazine! If you support this, just reply with "Yes". Lets hope other weapons like the pistol can also have double drum magazines. Those of you who dont know what I mean, here is a picture of a single drum magazine.

Also, how about gasmask masks? Or Machine guns?

idk, maybe. Something to counterbalance the huge double drum magazine is to give it extreme deterioration in mobility and to give it a huge visibility increase. Also, I think it should have a little bit worse accuracy since the weight could make it harder to accurately fire your weapon.

Yeah, something like that to make it balanced, it would look like we havn't just brought our weapons from the store, but rather customized them like criminals would do, by fitting an illegal magazine to the weapons.

It would be hard to balance that. Keep it mind, none of the stats would really reflect the mag. If you lower the mobility, big deal, there's hardly any different. Visibility shouldn't mean anything to someone carrying a huge mag, since you clearly intend to shoot it. Things like accuracy and recoil just wouldn't make sense to change.

I mean, the main problem with machine guns (and what a lot of people assume is why the brenner didn't return) is because of the new police AI. They tend to move it groups, and the maps are much smaller and closed it. Basically, you'd have a group of enemies, and you could just spray into a hallway for loads of kills.

Have fun hiding that. They'd have to balance that by making you essentially insta-spotted or something. It'd also probably put you down to one or two mags, those things are pretty damn heavy and hard to move with. Gas masks' aren't needed, your regular mask does just as much, and no, you can't have thermal vision for the smoke, it'd ruin the point of the smoke. LMG's would have to make you be very visible (again) with huge slows, ♥♥♥♥ accuracy unless you set up a bi-pod or something, and not very many mags.

Add it to the Para SMG, with the Shorter than short stock.

You can basically get drum magazines if you use the ammo skills. Almost your entire ammo supply without reloading.

Wholy crap, I guess we know what's gonna be in the DLC.

I'd say just make the recoil woefully massive.

I'd consider holding that many rounds on an already heavy weapon pretty difficult to control.

If we get drum/box mags people can finally stop demanding brenner :P

I'm pretty sure we'll see some new weapon mods with the DLCs, and hopefully also such a mag.

Or not, if they considered "impossible to balance"

An extra 3 lbs or so doesn't do much.

If it doubled your magazine size there would be little reason NOT to use them, especially when stealth is so ♥♥♥♥ty already. To balance them you would have to give crazy drawbacks, and that wouldn't really fit in with 90% of the other upgrades. How I see it they have two ways of going about it, either have it decrease the movement speed, or have it where they can only be put on certain guns which are weaker to begin with, OR a combination to both.
