@cyoce If horizontal recoil is too hard to control, use burst fire or semi-auto, problem solved, full auto should only be viable at close range. There's no such thing as lower skill cap, bad player will use full-auto spray and pray, good player will know when to use semi and when to use full auto.
@marksmanmax 10% less recoil doesn't exactly turn it into a laser beam. I'd say even 50% less recoil wouldn't feel like a laser beam.
Even 20% less recoil can turn a gun that's pretty hard to control into a breeze. It's almost like a 20% reload speed increase, for instance. It doesn't sound like much but damn it makes a difference.
When you can relatively easily fire an M4 full-auto at a target about 50 meters away and land nearly every shot because of crouching, it's overpowered. I did a video just testing how effective crouching was versus just equipping attachments:
