Battlefield 2042 has never really had a variety of weapons to choose from. Like many aspects of the game, weapon options have been too limited and the overall player experience has suffered as a result.
Although portal mode has better weapon options, players have been asking for more official additions. The first season hasn’t done much in this regard, and players are now upset after seeing Activision Blizzard’s plans for the upcoming Call of Duty Modern Warfare II.
Traditionally, the Call of Duty and Battlefield franchises are seen as rivals, though the two have gone in different directions with recent games. Battlefield 2042 was supposed to help the franchise get ahead, but the game didn’t deliver on the promises it made. Unfortunately for fans, some of these features have yet to make it to the game, even nine months after its release. Even more disappointing is the fact that while DICE’s latest release grabbed headlines for all the wrong reasons, Call of Duty Modern Warfare II seems to be getting some positive press.
Battlefield 2042 fans are upset with the available weapon options in light of the upcoming options in Call of Duty Modern Warfare II.
Battlefield 2042 did not have the best launch, and players were quick to express disappointment with the overall quality of the game. The game initially launched with 22 weapons. What surprised many was that DICE didn’t bother adding weapons for a long time. Many expected that the first season of the game would fix these issues, but it didn’t.
On the contrary, Call of Duty Modern Warfare II looks completely different when it comes to weapons. Reddit user u/Battlefield0918 posted an image of the various weapons in the game. Modern Warfare II’s weapon options already seem pretty solid, and Activision Blizzard is known for adding more weapons with major updates to its games.
One user commented that the number of developers working on weapons at Activision Blizzard was probably higher than the entire Battlefield 2042 team.
It should be noted that the list of weapons on the poster includes both confirmed and rumored entries. However, most of them are confirmed, and some of the rumored ones have a high probability of making it to the game. So it’s safe to say that the list of weapons available in the next Call of Duty game will be much more extensive than the one in Battlefield 2042.
Some even believe that some of the modes Activision Blizzard introduces with Call of Duty Modern Warfare II could kill off the Battlefield franchise. While these modes have been tested before, a refined version of them will likely work around the shortcomings of previous iterations.
One player pointed out the Gunsmith system in the Call of Duty games. This system allows users to radically modify the weapons they own and improve them in different ways. Such a system in Battlefield 2042 could have helped bridge the gap created by a lack of weapons.
Activision also manages games like Call of Duty Warzone well, with regular updates and bug fixes. Events, seasonal bonuses, and new rewards also keep players interested and add variety to the game.
Some recalled the high hopes they had when the Battlefield 2042 trailer was released. It’s safe to say that many of those expectations have not been met.
If Call of Duty Modern Warfare II lives up to the hype, it will be able to deliver a massive blow to Battlefield 2042. The latest Battlefield title has been out for over a year, but the overall state of the game leaves a lot to be desired. .
