If you go back though each war you can see the military stream lining weapon usage. Each war offering less and less options for the soldiers to bring into battle. That being said, even now a days they have a ton of different options to choose from at least compared to CM. I'd really like to see weapons like the double barrel shotgun, or the .357 spearhead just to name a few as available options to the marines before going planetside. Also if cargo'd ammo machine spawned at least partially stocked with ammo from weapons you can get from weapon crates, or blackmarket crates. You might see people requesting them more often, or putting in requests for extended clips, or flame ammo. Which doesn't make a huge difference but would give marines more personality in their weapon choices.

There does exist an alternative to the M41A pulse rifle, there's the lovely M4RA Battle rifle that features in Colonial Marines

The battle rifle seems like a decent alternative to the pulse rifle

That's already in game, mostly on Whiskey Outpost. Won't be standard issue since it's more like a DMR at best in terms of role. The M41A is our service rifle.

I think SL's should have M41A's. Not only will SL's have something less to focus on (Ammo/reloading mostly) but playing as an SL is hard enough i think they need a lil somthin to boost personal morale.

aside from being a doctor during highpop, SL is literally the one job where you are the most middle of middle-men, and know one knows you or likes you. The only times that doesn't happen is when Xur leads muhreens to victory.
