In this article, I will be talking about what I think the next Call of Duty needs to become better than its previous games.
I have played all the Call of Duty's to date and I can say with my hand on my heart that it’s became stale, repetitive and boring.
The first point in this article that I will be talking about is the maps. They need to be more creative and bigger. The maps over the series of COD have gotten smaller, hence taking the ability to snipe away. In addition to this, it feels like the designers of the Call of Duty maps have no imagination anymore.
In order to make them better the designers would have to do the following: first of all to make the maps bigger, with the ability to enter more buildings, have more imagination to them for example snowy mountains going into a small village and you could choose to snipe from the mountains or be fighting in the village.
My second point is that there should be destructible environment within the game, this would make the game more realistic and also would discourage campers from staying in one building for too long. Furthermore this would put a whole new aspect of how team based games are played for example headquarters and domination and it would generally make the game more fun.
My third point that the game the weapons should be more realistic. What I mean by this that the knife should take more than one swipe to kill, unless you managed to sneak behind someone and stab them in the neck (like battlefield). The ability to quick scope and no-scope should be removed since it’s not possible. The Barrett 50Cal should be able to kill in one hit regardless of what perks your using. Furthermore duel wielding weapons should be removed (or if kept you’re not allowed a primary weapon). In addition to this the ability to throw C4 and the power of the C4 should be reduced and should be used for destroying buildings. Furthermore to make the guns more realistic there should be things like, bullet drop and other various things like the wind and atmosphere should all play in a part of how well the weapons work.
This brings me onto my fourth point, which is that, think of some new weapons/ or more weapons into the game. Over the course of COD we seen loads of the same weapons yet only a few new ones and I think it’s time to bring in new weapons with more choice of weapons. There are plenty of weapons out there go and look them up and do some research on them.
My next point in this article is bringing vehicles back to COD, the last COD to have drivable vehicles was COD: World at War, since then they just seemed too disappeared and been replaced with kill streaks that you can semi-control for example the AC130 and copper gunner. Once again this would bring a whole new aspect of how the game is played and make the game more challenging and realistic. But saying this there should be a system where a player can only get into a vehicle so many times per match, this would make sure that more players got the chance to use vehicles.
My next point, that the whole re-spawn system should be redone. Let's face it at the moment on current COD games, the spawn system is appalling and clearly does not work. The new system should ensure that spawn killing is kept to a minimum and also make sure that spawn trapping is kept down. I have seen plenty of cases of this and it’s rather annoying.
This bring me onto my final point, which is that the game needs dedicated servers and better bandwidth support to ensure that lag compensation is kept to a minimum and make sure that it’s a fairer fight for everyone. I have seen plenty of cases of this, mostly on Black Ops: 2.
All in all COD isn't a terrible game, but it certainly needs a lot of redesigning and updating, I believe that if they don't tackle these problems that there greed and repetitiveness will be there down fall.
