I looked at that root beer PC thread and realized "wait poo poo they're doing the PC beta".

It's completely free so feel free to show off low res iron crosses preload and hope this doesn't look terrible.

Edit: wee page 2 here we are. Infinite Warfare's major crime of which I cannot forgive is the lack of a dab gesture. YOU HAD THE OPPORTUNITY GOD DAMMIT

I don't know why I thought this might be different. I guess I was really just hoping it would be slower paced rifle-centric gameplay, but this just looks like the last 15 CoD games and everyone has an automatic gun.

You know the first couple CoD games that were set in WW2 that came out over a decade ago had automatics in them, right?

They did but they also had a number of bolt-action rifles and it felt more slow paced. I guess the maps back then were larger and built for long range engagements which is why it worked.

I'm not really sure what you expected from Call of Duty in the year 2017. Regardless of the setting, they still have a player base to cater to, and the shift from people floating around in the air to boots on the ground that weigh the same as a tank was already a drastic shift to split what the yearly cod players want.

Yeah I get that, I don't even know what I would want from a CoD game anymore. I guess it would be cool if they had tried to do vehicles and large maps again like United Offensive.

I know that but in the create-a-class menu in the part where I choose the division there's a button that lets me choose between French medic and Communist-Russian sapper or American paratrooper and British commando but not im not seeing an equivalent menu for my nazi.

Soldier -> Dossier -> Faces.

Also some bit of QoL problems I've noticed with the menu so far: mouse wheel scrolling in the menu does not work at all, don't even try it, and also unskippable cutscenes. Haven't gotten some sick gameplay shots yet.

This is really nice, I like it a lot. No double jumping wall running bullshit. Just good ole traditional shootmans. Looks beautiful, runs great with everything on Extra but eventually starts hitching after 3-4 maps unless I restart. Seems fine on High.

Saw a recon plane spawn nearly inside of another recon plane and bounce off each other until I shot one down

This seems really remarkably terrible. Bad weapon feel with really low TTK, movement feels slow and stodgy, map design is terrible. They should really just go back to the MP starter pack idea from BLOPS 3 as these games get increasingly less worth $60.

Lighting people on fire is loving awesome!!!! If you smash them straight on with a molotov they seem to flail around and scream extra long

The fire is really pretty, the heat distortion is wild in motion. I feel like a pyro, or maybe a moth 🔥






Edit: I think they loving nailed the core gameplay. It takes a few unlocks to get where you're used to. You'll have extra long/fast sprint and 0 fall damage with dual handguns in no time.

There seems to be some strategy in running out of sprint right as you get to things you can vault over as they pull you forward a bit faster than you walk

I hit the level cap (it's 30), you stop gaining overall experience but can still level weapons and divisions. Can we hit division rank 5? I'd like to see what the classified weapons are this weekend

The final semi-automatic shotgun gets 9 rounds with the extended mag and is good as hell. I've been running around w/ that as infantry to use the extendo + rifling + rapid fire, have had a few pubbies rage out about it already.

The M1A1 Carbine (final Assault Rifle) is like a semi-auto laser beam.

The Waffle (final SMG) has an absurd rate of fire, I haven't unlocked anything for it yet because I was grinding grease gun

I don't believe in sniping/scopes in CoD games so I can't tell you anything about that. I can tell you that the FMJ rounds are beefy if not outright necessary for domination when you need to shoot through cover

Also finished a bugged challenge?


It's really something else to run through a room where there has recently been a fight and see burnt bodies writhing around next to dudes with one leg, the screaming is something else lol.

More pictures of dudes on fire cause its like art, 2nd one is probably my favorite. This game is very cinematic.



War mode is cool, but frustrating without coordination. You absolutely need at least one guy if not two with smoke nades, and a decent sniper to go down on the lower riverbanks to snipe up into the MG emplacements. We made it all the way to escorting the tank but haven't outright won yet.

I've never seen one of these before, never really thought about what you'd do about fire without running water



Edit: I hope there are more guns than this. I was also thinking how neat it'd be if they had an app on the new iPhone that let you scan your face into the game lol

NO ATTACK NO CHANCE



Some balance tweaks for the PC beta, though I don't know if they were pushed in the night or if the beta launched with them. If it's the latter, it didn't make much difference as SMGs were still dominant from the streams I watched. Maybe even more so with the better recoil control for the Waffe on m/kb.

quote:

Also, the PC Beta includes some new weapon tuning updates and we’re getting fresh match data on these changes. Specifically:
• We reduced the damage per second and decreased falloff range across all SMGs.
• The STG44 Assault Rifle recoil was nerfed.
• Minor buff to the fire rate of the M1A1, 1911 and P-08.

No Garand buff I see. Or is the Garand actually good this time around. Because I remember not liking the handling of the Garand back on PS4 beta.

Seems fine/good. Plays very much like other ground based cods. I skipped the last couple modern ones so it feels fresher again than someone that has been playing cod non-stop perhaps.

I have played plenty of mw2/3 + blops 1-3 and there is no way you can call this terrible if you like cod. This is the mcdonalds of gaming, you know what you are getting.
