Those wepaons are usd in competitive exactly because they are OP compared to any other fast firing weapon. Fast reload, low recoil etc. All weapons need a strenght and a weakness, not all the best stats with no weakness. For example the Famas is the fastest firing weapon, but has one of the worst recoil patterns and high reload time. The Aek is nearly as fast as the famas but much easier to use and has a 2 seconds! faster reload.
I believe there are plenty of people sick of DICE and their "balance"
