Redditors want new gun animations in Battlefield 2042

A recent Reddit post on r/battlefield2042 talked about the community’s wishes for the new title. A ton of comments on the post mentioned the reworking of gun animations for Battlefield 2042. The franchise has seen minimum changes to these animations since the release of Battlefield 3 in 2011.

Fans believe that these animations looked unrealistic in the recent titles of the franchise like Battlefield V and more. Some consider the rifle animations in these games to look weird, and it takes away the warfare experience that the game provides. With Battlefield 2042 set to be one of the top games of the year, fans don’t want to see the same visuals again.

Many community members on the Reddit post also gave their props to the weapon animations on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. The community praised the developer’s efforts to create an amazing experience for fans with the 2019 title. These weapon animations have made its way to the franchise’s popular Battle Royale title in Call of Duty: Warzone.

Fans want to see an improvement in this department as the competition heats up between two of the most popular franchises in the genre. They have also asked for the developers to be less stingy with the cosmetic offerings. With tweaks to this element, the developers at DICE can create an even better game for fans to enjoy. Small tweaks like these will surely enhance the experience for players on modes like Conquest and Domination.
