Single MGs pin entire squads (out of range)

Single MG’s can pin down entire squads. Since squads get pinned out of range they just sit there, unable to move while the MG slowly guns them all down. Incredibly annoying. Tho the counters are obvious… But lets just say someone decides to build a ninja MG in front of your barracks. Not so fun now eh.

Start a game and rush (accidentally no less) a squad towards the enemy and get stuck because of a single mg to reproduce it.

I would like it if MG’s had a shorter pin down range. At least so riflemen can shoot back at it (albeit ineffectively).
Maybe give them a slight buff if their pin range is lowered?
Or perhaps make it so that they don’t pin? I don’t know.

Discuss.
