So I've been looking around websites that have been able to confirm what weapons will be available on MW3. What confuses me is why the devs would take out some of the weapons used in MW2. Why not just have the newer weapons added on top of the already existing list? Since the game is running on the same MW2 engine, they should still have the designs for the MW2 weapons right? It just doesn't make sense.
Now one could argue for balancing purposes, but the developers have boasted their new system of being able to balance the game quickly so this shouldn't be an issue.
People really like the weapon selection in the recent Call of Duty games; I personally liked the really bad (as in garbage) weapons and I was saddened to see no F2000 in the weapons list for MW3. Also there are those people who have the 10 classes all with different weapons; I generally gravitate towards having 10 classes with **** rifles because that's how I roll.
Yes eventually people will gravitate towards their favorite weapons and not use the majority of the others but you always have the curious gamers (like me) who are willing to try every single weapon.
I'm just kind of hoping that they'll release a weapon pack (free of charge) upon some release of a map pack. Now that is unlikely, but I'll wish as much as I damn well please. Or better yet, I hope that they just bring back the older weapons upon release. Just tweak some of them slightly, the Famas was stupidly powerful (yes, I'm referring to the MW2 version).
