Despite some strong criticism Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has been facing since its beta run on single-player mode, the game seems to have retained most of its player base through the multiplayer mode. However, a lot of CoD veterans have also called out MW3 as being no better than MW2 in terms of glitches and bugs, but the numbers are still phenomenal for a ‘game in progress.’ 

But not all the players look for an intense pro clashing with the FPS and prefer casual fun with some heavy arsenal showcase. Thus, CouRage took to his X account and wrote, “Can Call of Duty public games be played casually in 2023? I’d love some tips on how to enjoy multiplayer. I just want to run around with the new guns and level them up but all my lobbies have ACRs/Holgers fully kitted.”

Gamers might recall days of CoD before the FPS community evolved into the top-tier leagues. A fair share of active players in the Call of Duty world were associated with the casual gaming formula. Things seem to have changed with CoD becoming the big brand and other alternatives for casual FPS fun hitting the markets. The fans therefore had a clear answer. 

Fans have a common advice for the streamer 

The query invited a lot of interesting reactions from the fans and here are a few reactions that deserve your attention. 

A user believes having casual fun in CoD is not possible mostly because of the matchmaking system that makes the game more of a professional battleground. 

A player shared a hilarious representation of how playing CoD feels like in 2023. Well, no counterarguments to that! 

An FPS fan believes the fun element has been eradicated from every FPS game these days as all appeal to a pro-action-packed contest.
