I think all the rainbow six games tried to make SMGs useful, actually, it's just not sensible.
The M14 works fine multiplayer. It's got great range, best of any rifle that isn't a sniper rifle, and accuracy and damage. The only problem is it adjusts slowly when you're moving a lot and recoils like a bitch. In certain areas I can see an AUG or MP5/10 being better, but generally it works fine as a medium range weapon in MP.
