Did anybody use ballistics in MW2 & GBL?

I don't see a general gameplay discussion forum, so I apologize if this is the wrong choice.

I've wondered for a while if anybody found the autocannons to be useful in the MW2 games. I found that I had difficulty destroying anything with an autocannon due to the hit bugs and the canons firing off all my ammunition at once. The ultras especially since they'd waste two shots and only one would hit, and some would seem to fire off even more if you weren't quick enough at releasing the mouse button or spacebar.

I also found that I was unable to complete either of the first missions in mw2 using a Mad Dog C with two gauss rifles, even when I upgraded it with endo steel to put as much ammo in there as possible, which led me to conclude the gauss was not worth it either.

I did find that assigning a mech with ballistics to a starmate would let them destroy a mech or two, but then they would run out of ammunition as it would take all their ammo just to beat one mech, two at best. Once again, energy weapons were the way to go for this reason.
About the only time I used anything ballistic was in the Jade Falcon trial with the Kit Fox.

So, did anybody else find the autocannons and ballistic weapons useful in any of the MW2 games?

Projectile weapons weren't the best in 31stcc and GBL, but they seem to have fixed most of the bugs in Mercs, as Gauss and Ultra ACs are extremely effective against poorly-armored or weakened targets(at least, from my experience). The low heat output for projectile weapons means they are mostly to fall back on, in the case of overheating.
