What constitutes an overpowered weapon is different for everybody. MW3 has many contenders, because most weapons are easy to use.

The normal 5 are FMG-9 Akimbo, PP90M1, MP7, ACR 6.8 and the Type 95.

What, if any, do you think is overpowered?
What and how do you think weapons should be nerfed/buffed?

In Counter-Strike it goes along like this.
Primary Fire Knife - Fast, 15dmg front
Secondary Fire Knife - Slow, 65dmg front
Backstabs are x2 damage.
How did Valve get this right so many years ago, and even now IW can't follow suit! Make the knife a third weapon that has to be selected. More damage for backstabs, maybe even implement the 2 different knife attacks.

Oh and on a side note, FMG9s!! NERF THEM. THEY ARE STILL OP (No rage thread so I'm taking out my anger here, productively )

They sound make the knife multi-functional like in Counter-Strike. You would have to pull it out (tertiary slot) primary fire would do a faster melee but weaker, but secondary fire would do a slower melee but stronger. Remove knife lunge altogether.

Iirc, MW3 is one of few CoD games that made the sniper rifles have different base damages. Dragunov and RSASS both do 70 damage unsilenced; and the L118, AS50, Barret .50cal, and MSR all do 98 damage unsilenced. They should made have the high calibur sniper rifles (Barret 50.cal and AS50) do 98 damage, and the rest 70. It sorta makes more sense that way tbh.

To be honest all the snipers in this game are OP, just like MW2 you can run around with a sniper and get easy kills with all of the work being done by aim assist. Well at least that is what it's like on the PC
I'm sorry but I cannot disagree with this sentence more!

All snipers are OP - No, to use a sniper rifle and go consistently positive with it you have to be a good player. In which case the player would probably do even better with an AR/SMG, they are basically handicapping themselves. A sniper in the hands of a GOOD player may possibly be considered OP, but in the hands of most pre-pubescent teenagers (90% of sniping community) they are not.

PC doesn't have aim assist so, whilst it is easier to be more accurate on the PC due to mouse aim, you have to actually aim, not just rely on aim assist.

If you play Hardcore, no weapon is OP

A weapon is OP based on balance, not about how much damage a weapon does (to some degree) against a player's health.

The Dragunov does the joint highest damage, is that classed as OP? Of course not.
