Battlefield 4 Additions that Raise Big Questions

“Weapon customization in Battlefield 4 will be deeper than ever, thanks to a powerful feature set to fit any combat role.”

Many of you are out on the battlefield marking and lining up targets with the newly released Battlefield 4. With tons of guns, accessories, and slots, there are various outcomes for personal customization according to the developers, but when you learn more about the variations that are possible, questions are raised that any player would ask.

“As with many other aspects of Battlefield 4, fan feedback has been crucial in making the weapon options better than ever. We’ve always strived for great weapon balance and numerous customization possibilities over the years, and now you can expect an even greater amount of depth. Listening to our fans, we’ve worked with everything from perfecting that sense of “oomph” in our guns, to bringing back some favorite weapons to Battlefield 4 – all of which have been completely. “- [DICE], SlyOkapi

Tons of Weapons, Accessories, Slot Accessories. Retrievable ?

Battlefield 4 is packing on the arsenal with tons of weapons to choose from,  tripling the amount from Battlefield 3.  And more weapons come with tons of accessories, plus slots. The developer stated that, for example, just off of the assault rifle alone – everything from optics, other attachments, and camos would add up to over 240,000 variations just for one gun. So with any gun, you’ll be able to customize it to the fullest of your liking. A cool option for a big and dynamic type of gameplay in BF4’s multiplayer to fit any type of playing style.

The question is, with tons of choices for each weapon in Battlefield  4, just how long would it take for a player to unlock everything?

If you recall in Battlefield 3, each weapon or attachments were unlocked through player progression and additional unlocks through specific classes. There was also a option given by DICE in the maturity of the title being released that for a certain price, players can buy out unlocks. Let’s hope this is not an option on Battlefield 4 because overpowering the game would be at its highest on the large shooter. Then the plan on  ‘balancing the game’ would then be crossed out.

Full Description on Gun Stats: a Gift and a Curse?

DICE developers have also shared that when players browse through the various selections for attachments, a visual guide will appear on the right giving weapon stats such as damage, accuracy, hip fire accuracy, range, and stability.

Similar to Call of Duty, for example, if you would throw on Laser Sight,  the hip accuracy, and range bars  would raise because that attachment improves those stats. SlyOkapi states, “This interface is designed to encourage experimentation and make your Battlefield 4 experience even more rewarding.” But would it be? One of the vices in Call of Duty is knowing what guns are overpowered. It is also a gift and a curse with the franchise that leads to many updates due to complaining players being outwitted by their counterparts online.

Will all these additions mirror the issues Call of Duty has faced? Leave your comments below to let us know your thoughts.
