Redditor wants EA to be less stingy with Battlefield 2042

In a Reddit post on r/battlefield2042, a community member posted his horrid experience of grinding on Battlefield V. The player had logged in hundreds of hours on the game, and he stated that it was a pain to grind for cosmetics in it. In Battlefield V, players had to earn CC (Company Coins) to purchase cosmetics like headgear, torso, and other items. They can earn it by playing a lot of different modes for multiple hours.

But it took countless hours for them to earn enough money to unlock one item. For example, in the Reddit post, the player mentioned that it would take 73,100 CC to unlock all the headgear for the German Soldier. However, he also said that he could barely earn half that amount after playing it casually for a month. Situations like these have caused the community to worry about the state of microtransactions and grinding on Battlefield 2042.

What does the community want?

Fans of any popular franchise hate the idea of microtransactions being added to its latest game. But most of the time they wouldn’t mind microtransactions if it’s meant for cosmetics only. However, fans also want a chance to earn items like these by grinding out challenges and objectives. So it’s better to see a mixture of both these features.

Similarly, the community wants the difficulty, and the time required to complete these challenges to decrease drastically. They don’t want to spend a month doing objectives to earn a single helmet, and it’s better to have short and memorable challenges for players to have fun while playing it.
