Call of duty is a more casual game than battlefield
Debate Rounds (4)
This is my 1st debate, I look forward to seeing how this goes.
I believe battlefield is less casual and more competitive that CoD.
Call of duty is a fast paced FPS that is comprised of small maps, small teams which comes down to who can see who first with recoil for most guns not being too hardcore from my knowledge (before ghost) recoil and ADS also seem to not be a big deal in call of duty as you are able to quick scope in most every call of duty which is a weird concept being able to shoot without a cross-hair seconds after scoping in before the animation is done and having it be relatively accurate while that might take some skill to do, that leaves me to wonder how hard it really is to aim and shoot when there is little gun control needed to accurately shoot.
I will leave a link to two burst fire weapons. One from call of duty and one from battlefield. Here we can see that recoil pasterns from battlefield are much harder to control and much less predictable.
And last is Kill streaks, Simply put you can do ok and get a 525 points for a hell-storm missile, you then use that to get a huge lead to your next kill streak say the Stealth chopper or the Warthog which leads to helping you get the Swarm or K9 unit and even then if you don't get to the next kill streak you can stay in 1 spot and wait for people to pass by and kill them till you get what you need. Having played this game at one point I can say this is what I have done many times.
Tl;dr, I feel like the maps are too large in battlefield and makes it much more of a game about wondering around where as call of duty forces you to do gunplay at every corner.
While it is true that battlefield maps are much bigger I believe that to be the more competitive part. When I play CoD I run around the map 15 times shoot people kill people die and repeat. When I play Battlefield I never run around the edge full circle or even close as that would take a few minutes. You cant simply sit in a corner and get easy pickings on battlefield as there is a chance that as little as 1-5 people will cross your path on most maps (unless you are sniping) like Gulf of Oman or Pearl market. on battlefield you have to be actively moving around objective to objective or you forfeit helping your team in anyway. Another skill aspect is classes, you have to choose if you want to supply your team with ammo, heal and revive them, take out vehicles, or snipe.
When you said you find yourself wondering around shooting things, that is simply you not PTFO which I don't mean as a put down its just an acronym I felt suitable to your situation. not playing the objective in battlefield is usually the only way you end up just wondering around shooting things which could hurt your team.
Yeah a pain when you are solo. I play solo to 3 man squads either way it is still more coordinated attacks solo or not considering you can still hop into a bf4 squad and talk or type to them. it takes more team work. you cant have 4 snipers you need a mix of 2-4 of them so you can revive your team in a heated battle and hand out ammo to soldiers low while defending a point Gettysburg style. Vehicles are a nuisance when your team does not know how to play the game. When you have knowledgeable players they will know two people firing missiles at it will kill it after 4 or so rockets. or you could get your own tank and have an eng repair you from the back so you can sustain longer. there are ALOT more variables in battlefield to determine who will live, die, lose , win. The guns have horizontal, vertical recoil. harder spray pasterns and the guns have their own play-style. CoD you just try and survive long enough to get kill streaks and destroy the enemy team, be that by killing everyone like a skilled player or hiding and caping points
...I dunno i'm running out of Ideas xD
I will challenge you to another debate on that if you like.
So... not much.
