'Battlefield 3' adopts weapon customization
Battlefield 3's approach to weapon customization is firmly fixed on combat usage, distinguishing itself from both
Call of Duty and
Ghost Recon in the process.
Primary weapons come with three accessory slots, allowing players to specialize firearms in keeping with preferred playing style and battle tactics.
These accessories include grips, scopes, muzzles, bipods, flashlights and laser sights, as well as the familiar underslung grenade launchers and shotgun attachments of Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
Call of Duty: Black Ops prided itself on players' ability to adorn their weapons with custom paint-jobs and engravings, while Ghost Recon: Future Soldier demonstrated its Gunsmith Mode in June, in which hybrid weaponry can be assembled from a selection of base model parts.
Battlefield 3 launches on Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3 during the week of October 25. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is out November 8 and Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is due March 2012.
