That is correct. The last downloadable content for Battlefield 4, called Final Stand, is going to destroy the Battlefield franchise. Origin didn’t do it. Battlelog didn’t do it. Going to the Frostbite engine didn’t do it. Even the terrible release and horrid state of Battlefield 4 itself did not do it. So what did it? The DLC that has pieces of the beginning of 2142 in it. That’s right. Sci-Fi killed Battlefield.

So we have now come full circle. Battlefield 2142 was released in 2006 and we approaching the 10 year anniversary of the futuristic shooter. Since Battlefield 3, DICE has been hinting of another 2142 style Battlefield game. A game once again set up well into the future where global warming/cooling has collapsed countries and humanity has to fight for what land is left. Where hover tanks, battle walkers, and huge floating warships, called Titans, rule the battlefield. (more…)

That’s right Battlefield fans! Vacation is over for DICE and they are coming back into the office and what is the first noticable mentions to get started with? Rebalance! Same type of word as “adjustments”. Basically nerfing the game like they did with Battlefield 3.

Don’t get me wrong, Battlefield 4 needs some fine tuning, it is true and I do have a jaded memory of all the changes back and forth in Battlefield 3. During the beta I left feedback on how weak vehicles were and how splash damage wasn’t really good and how the attack chopper really wasn’t that threatening to vehicles. I still feel those things need to be looked at a bit more and adjusted. There are a few issues with this though.

You heard correct. DICE has removed the fully automatic M16A3 from Battlefield 4 and have replaced it with the semi-automatic M16A4. For weeks following Gamescom people have been asking “What will beat the M16?” and “Can the M16 be beaten in Battlefield 4?” and now the answer is yes, because it is not in the game.

If you remember in my last M16 article I wrote about how people were trying their hardest to have the M16A3 nerfed in Battlefield 3 and that there were daily posts about how it is over powered. Well, once again the pendulum has swung and there are posts and petitions and pleas of mercy to bring back the M16A3.

The M16A3 has gone back and forth with the Battlefield Community about how the weapon is overpowered and needs to be nerfed, also known as weakened or toned down. Today there is so much argument about it that you can probably go into the Battlelog forums and find no less than three threads about it in the BF3 General section. People have complained about it so much that they will disguise their posts as other questions just to bring up the M16 argument. Chances are if the thread has to do with most weapons used, being “OP”, or “noob”, then the M16 WILL be talked about.

So is the M16 overpowered and should be nerfed? A good majority will instantly say YES. No second thoughts about it. They will say how quick it kills, how accurate it is, how any low level player can use it, and how you see it everywhere, by everyone, on the battlefield. If you think it is not and try to say something about it not being that way, they then look at your stats and if it is in the top 5 of your weapons, then you just don’t want it nerfed and you are a noob and your opinion does not count. It is #2 on my stats as of this writing, by the way.

So there you have it! The weapon is overpowered and needs a nerf. Thank you for reading.
