    Have you got PS Plus? Seems to only be free for Plus users.

    Just included that in the original post, yes you need PS+. You can get a free trial and download it.

    I'm done with Modern Warfare, because they only seem to be focusing on improving Warzone. So I was thinking of downloading this, but I didn't like it the first time around, so I went googling.

    According to gamestat, there are still 24 million people playing Advanced Warfare on PS4, 34 million playing Infinite Warfare, and 72 million playing BlOps 3. Seems people are also sick of the same ole and are still playing the future ones.

    For fairness sake, all PS4;

    WWII: 35 million
    MW 2019: 48 million
    MWR: 24 million
    BlOps 4: 30 million

    Anyone playing any of these and confirm if they're a hackfest or not? Preferably Infinite or BlOps 3.

    I think those numbers are an estimate of the number of people who have played it and the relevant number is the MAU, (monthly active users)
    I got very excited for a moment as the MAU for MW2 is 360K but then realised they're all playing the remaster.

    Yeah, it's not very accurate, but gives general idea i suppose. Gonna down BlOps 3 and see. Pain in the ring to download it. Doesn't show in the library on console, or in the store on console or app/online. Have to sign in on the app, go to the store, go to your download list, and search for it page by page because the order is random, and if you had a lot of PS3 games they show too, and no way to filter. Found different dlcs for it on different pages too... crazy system.

    Edit: see what you mean now. 1.1 million monthly active users on BlOps 3, second to MW 2019 which is at 6 million. I'll give it a go anyway.

    Anyone figure out Warzone ? Joined a match, parachute in and generally get picked off in the air. End up in Gulag. Loose in there and you spend an age spectating, watching players collect ****e. Gave it 2 hours but it seems to be the same with an awful lot of snipers.

    COD on the other hand is same old thing. Very small rotation of maps. And how in gods name do you mute en masse. The kids who spend their time talking about nothing regardless of language is doing my nut in.

    Both games on the edge of deletion.

    if you get knocked out of Warzone you just quit not spectate randoms

    Honestly I think MW2019 is the best COD in a really, really long time.

    There's a good mix of map types and loads of game modes to chose from, personally I play everything except team deathmatch which is a terrible camp/get-shot-in-back simulator. (nothing new there)

    Hardpoint and Domination in particular are well worth playing, I find the objective game modes are just so much better.

    Ground War is also worth a peek, like a simplified version of Battlefield - bigger maps, few vehicles, bigger teams. I like to mix it up every now and again between normal Core and Ground War.

    I won't pretend Warzone is bad or anything but I'm not a big fan of it either. There are other better BR games out there like PUBG or Apex Legends (also free).

    Audio wise, just set it to automatically mute your team, it's in the options.

    I'm really enjoying Warzone personally...its a great game which is completely free...You dont even need PS + to play online. Getting a lot of value out of it and can definitely see myself improving. The first few days I wasn't getting any kills at all


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,303 ✭✭✭✭ gimli2112


    I do find it triggers me. Yesterday got on and got killed (outplayed), killed in the gulag (meh 50/50), killed running for a second loadout after being bought back in (shot in the back), killed in the next game (outplayed or just bad play by me)
    Then in the gulag I stunned the guy, rushed turned the corner and he beamed me from the far end of the hall. 0-5 in the space of 20 minutes
    Couldn't handle it.
    I can play for hours on end over a weekend but logging on after work when I'm already in bad form is not good for my mental health.

    A bit of a long shot, but after getting really into WW2 the last couple of weeks thanks to lockdown, I’m wondering does anyone happen to know of cheaper ways to get the Season Pass for the DLC maps?

    I actually have it myself but one of my friends I play with doesn’t and we can’t match up in the same lobbies obviously for new maps. He’s reluctant to pay the 50 euro as the DLC maps don’t appear to come up too regularly in circulation.
