I have a multiplayer weapon mod that has the text "Longer range and improved accuracy. Slower handling". What does the Slower handling mean?

  • I believe most LMG have a lower handling skill, which probably refers to the movement speed while the weapon is equipped

A slower handling means that it takes longer to:

  • Enter aim mode
  • Shoot after going out of cover
  • Shoot when in sprint mode
  • Shoot after switching to the weapon

I'm pretty sure 'slower handling' refers to slower iron sights, weapon switch, and reloading.
