The Battlefield 1 developers have taken to the community for in-depth feedback on "how the weapons feel." The devs are looking to gauge players' reception on the weapons, how the community finds them useful, and how they can improve many of them.
Said a Battlefield developer on Reddit:
I'm posting here today to get your feedback, and to give you all a chance to have your questions about weapons answered.
Things I'm interested in: What you think of how weapons play, whether it's a weapon that you love, or one that makes you say "what were they thinking!?" Now's your chance to get an answer. How do you feel about variety within each class? Ask anything about weapons currently in the game. Try to avoid replies like "X is OP" or "Y is the worst" with no other info. If you have a concern like that, try to point out exactly what about the weapon you feel could be improved.
Things I'm not interested in: Questions about future content, I can't answer these. Bug reports, suggestions for future weapons, or feedback about things other than weapon gameplay.
Hopefully this thread produces some good feedback, and gives you all a better idea of our thinking when we were making these weapons. Expect to see me around here in the future from time to time too.
Here's how you can be heard:
- Follow this link to the post on Reddit.
- Sign in or create an account.
- Share your thoughts.
You don't have to be some sort of mathematical genius, listing out scaling weapon damage comparisons, to help shape the game. Just a few thought-out examples should provide more player insight.
It's a refreshing move by the Battlefield development team to reach out and let the players influence their game of choice.
