In a recent interview, Creative Strategist for Infinity Ward, Robert Bowling, stated
that crafting a perfectly balanced game is one of the hardest parts of making the game.
"I think ideal balance is possible, but perfect balance is subjective to the individual player," said Bowling in a recent interview with NowGamer. "So if we nerf shotguns, the people who love shotguns are going to be angry, and if we buff shotguns, the people who love shotguns will be happy, but everyone else will be upset. But Bowling admits that finding a perfect balance is "entirely subjective, as it all depends on your preferred play style."
Bowling also answered some questions about the obviously over-powered, and possibly over-used,
Type 95. Bowling isn't oblivious to the criticism that the Type 95 receives.
"We do, and it’s because the Type 95 is a very easy weapon to use," said Bowling, "where something like the MK14 – which is what I’ve actually been using recently – is a very powerful weapon, but in my opinion it requires more skill to use than the Type 95."
It's not just down to player skill, however, with Bowling saying that - due to Type 95's "lower barrier to entry" - there's more exposure to the weapon, "so it’s only natural that it’s the gun that gets the most comments."
In the end, Bowling states that a players ability to get kills isn't determined by individual weapon stats.
It is about skill level and a players own ability to get kills. If you wish you can read the full article You must login or register to view this content..
As much as I want to say Robert Bowling is wrong and the game is horrible, (just an opinion, don't get butthurt)
he is absolutely right. No FPS that I have played so far in my lifetime has been perfectly balanced. It inevitably
comes down to your own skill level and ability to get kills. Bowling is right on this one guys. No matter how you look at it.
