After playing the beta and achieving max rank I feel like I'm ready to share my final thoughts...

This topic will be split by spoilers so it looks somewhat nice.

WHAT I HATE

The new health system:

Being able to regen health manually and at any time is cool but there are a few downsides, such as the health being 150, not 100. I don't know what they were thinking at treyarch but 150 HP doesn't work. At times I'm shooting upto 5 bullets into an enemy to kill them, which is dumb.

1v2+ situations are nearly impossible in BO4 due to the long time to kill, I don't like that, it makes the game feel slow..


Specialists

Specialists in BO4 seem too OP.

For example, Recon's vision pulse can scan you from across the map and for upto 10+ seconds, which isn't fair. And when you get hit from one of firebreak's abilities you're unable to regen for what seems a minute (but idk).
Oh but I can't forget Ajax, being able to shoot while fully protected by the shield. Why Treyarch? You're making COD too noob friendly, which isn't good.

Hey. Remember when they said boots on the ground, YES! Well, ruin's grapple isn't BOTG..



New mantle/prone animation

This is a weird topic to cover but they have effected me loads.

The new animation when you go prone/mantle is dumb (I don't know if they were in IW/WW2 as I rarely play(ed) them) as there is no need for them. Thge amount of times I've died because I've tried going prone to wait for an enemy who is 2 seconds away is unbelievable. I get they're trying to remove dropshotting, but they could do it a different way like, when you go prone you stop shooting, not "lEtS pUt a PrOnE anImAtIoN iNto BO4 tO cOuNtEr DrOpShOtTiNg"


Camping/**** playstyles

I feel like Treyarch are really helping lower skilled players this year.
Here's why:

Barb wire/deployable shield specialist:

I can't remember the name of him but he sucks. It's literally a camper's dream, to have barbed wire behind them & a portable headglitch to sit behind. Sometimes the shield gives off the guardian effect from BO2/3 and the wire hurts (can someone tell me how and why please) I don't know why 3arc thought this was a good idea.

Armour:

Body armour doesn't belong in BO4, especially with the TTK being extremely slow. Being able to take an extra bullet to someone without AP rounds is stupid. 9x out of 10 the player with armour will win the gunfight...


Spawns

The spawns suck.

I have spawned right next to enemies multiple times, which makes easy kills.

Seraph's spawn beacon is strange too. I've spawned no where near it after selecting to spawn by it many times. Unless there's a reason for it, like an enemy being close then it needs fixing



Yes I know 3arc are trying to make BO4 a tactical COD, which explains the barb wire etc, and yes I know it's a beta, so things can be changed.

WHAT I LIKE

The maps

The maps in Black Ops 4's beta seem to play really well. (Only played TDM/KC and Heist so far)

idk what else to say


The weapons

The gun's I've used so far feel really nice, theres not been 1 gun that I've absolutely hated, which is good. SMG's feel great, and so do AR's.


I might edit this post throughout the beta as at the time of making it I cant think of anything else to put...

Thought I'd agree with you on some things & tell you what I personally disagree with.

I agree with you on a lot of this, now personally I do not mind the barbed wire and stuff like this for a few reasons, playing Domination or Hardpoint it allows you to block of another area, helping you keep control of the point.

The shields also doing the same, whilst you can easily counter them as it's no real advantage unless you walk in front of it and get locked due to the Guardian effect.

Grapple, I have mixed feelings, whilst it's not over powered and one playing being able to use it, this actually gives trickshotters something to do, allowing them to hit cool shots, of course you can shoot them out of the sky & it gives them a disadvantage using it, personally it's not been much of an issue for me.

The Maps, I 100% Agree with you on that.

Weapons, I 100% agree, whilst they could be balanced or tweaked a tiny bit for certain reasons. < health would probably solve this >

Spawns, they are horrible but hey it's the same for every other cod.


THE KIDS CAMPING ARE THE WORST, I had one kid camp on that map with the tank < forgot name > in the window pre firing the door and dropping streaks appon streaks due to teammates running at him like bots

I might have to play DOM/HP, maybe thats why I dislike the wire and shield. As there's no OBJ to defend/block off in TDM & KC.

Like you said, the grapple isn't OP but I personally dislike it as it throws me off when playing.

Weapons should be definitely buffed or health should be lowered, possibly to 125. Then Crash's ability boosting the team's HP to 150 or 175

I'm still really not a fan of this game. The health system is crap, the spawns are crap, and I feel like I'm playing a weird combination of ghosts and advanced warfare without the exo skeletons. Great tske Maid.
