The new gun from the season pass is good (the BSV) but it's got a relatively small ammo amount so you've got to hit your shots.New map is good, wonder how long before they pull the option of only playing it.
Still cant settle on a decent all round gun. (currently using the ac-42, i think thats whats its called.. burst fire one)
Otherwise, the SFAR is a lot of fun right now, the AK is also great in the AR category and then all of the SMGs compete. I've been swapping between the SFAR, M5A3 (short range build), K30 and BSV recently and all seem to be offer a good variety.
This new map is great, it's almost comically annoying how much better it is than the other launch 2042 maps. If we had the option of conquest/breakthrough/rush on the new map + the BF3/BF4 maps from Portal I think that'd be the ideal setup right now. Plus the new map really seems to lend itself well to all specialists, finally it feels like Irish can shine because of is sentinel (trophy system) essentially making grenades completely useless.
I do really like how the battle pass has been setup as well. 10 points per battle pass tier so you've always got an idea how your progressing and you can earn points through weekly missions or just by playing normally and getting XP that translates to points. Rewards seem well balanced too, currently at tier 30 on the BP and that's mainly been from doing the weekly missions.
I hope Dice look at the vehicle numbers again. Even though I've always primarily been an infantry player on BF it doesn't seem right that we're capped at 1 heli per team, and the Condors/Hinds can become quite oppressive if there's no other air vehicles in play to fight them.
I'd love to see jet's moved to their own category so they could more easily be picked - and I'm almost tempted to say the front gunner seat on the hind and condor should be removed / swapped for another passenger seat and them being given another set of flares. It's supposed to be a transport vehicle - but a good squad in the Condor with a 50mm cannon, mini guns + passengers repairing can essentially take out most other aircraft as well as being a massive nuisance for infantry.
The game is in a good spot right now, hopefully they keep adding to it and it continues to improve. Great to see the player numbers increasing as well.
