Battlefield 3 vs Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3
If you are a Call of Duty player and are thinking about trying out
Battlefield 3, you are not alone. With each release of the Battlefield series, more and more players are
trying out the game and the title is growing rapidly. Given how close the release dates of Battlefield 3 and
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 are, there is more talk about comparing the two titles than ever.
If you are wondering what separates Battlefield 3 from Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3, you are in the right
place. In this article, we will be discussing the primary differences between the two titles.
Battlefield 3 vs Modern Warfare 3 - Classes and Weapons
The major difference that most players will notice right away is the difference in classes. CoD allows you to
make up any class with any number of perks and weapons that you unlock, whereas Battlefield 3 offers players only 4
classes to choose from. However, in BF3, there are more options for customizing their class as each weapon gets a
larger variety of attachments and there are special pieces of equipment for each class (like health kits and
ammo packs for example).

The end result is that you will have to work a bit harder for each class if you want to unlock all the perks for
it in Battlefield 3. In Battlefield 3, increasing your strength and versatility is dependent upon your
progress in a particular class and with a particular gun, whereas in CoD most of your progress is tied to your
In Battlefield 3, once you unlock all the perks for a gun, you have a lot more versatility. You can also swap
out your weapon attachments in the middle of a fight, which is something you can only do in between matches in CoD.
This may sound trivial but it really does come in handy as many BF3 maps change rapidly throughout the course of a
For example, in rush mode on Operation Metro, if you are playing as an Assault class you probably want to use a
scope for the open area on rifle so you can improve your range. Then, when you enter the metro station, you can put
on a tactical light, which is a lot more effective at blinding enemies in close, dark quarters like the metro
station. If you used that same light outside, it would do nothing but give away your position.
Note that you do have to die in order to swap out your weapon attachments.
Level of Difficulty
When comparing Battlefield 3 to Call of Duty, Battlefield tends to be overall a little bit harder to play. This
is due to both game mechanics and playerbase. For example, the starting Assault class guns (AK74-M and M16) have a
lot more kick-back and are not nearly as accurate from long distances. When sniping from a distance, bullet drop is
very noticeable and you have to actually account for how far the bullet would fall due to gravity.
Additionally, you have to know how to use all your weapon attachments in order to get the most out of your
class. As mentioned above, using a tactical light when you want to bust into a dark room and using a scope outdoors
on the same map helps separate the proverbial wheat from the chaff.
Another thing is that Battlefield 3 seems to draw better players. In CoD, many players just are not very good,
but in BF3, the majority of players are good. I can easily hop on CoD and go 25-0, but when I get on BF3, very few
matches occur where any player ends the game with a KD ratio of 3-1.
Finally, Battlefield 3 makes extensive use of vehicles, even in multiplayer. In CoD, vehicles are like
killstreak rewards, whereas in Battlefield 3 they are on the map and for all players to use and control.
Well-organized teams can use vehicles strategically in order to gain a major edge in battle.
For example, you can load up a large helicopter with your team, and then fly your team over the enemy base and
let your team jump out into the heart of enemy territory, allowing them to move past choke points and camping spots
through the air rather then slugging it out on the ground.
Battlefield 3 vs Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Conclusion
In a nutshell, Battlefield 3 is geared towards players who are a bit more serious about gaming. If you do a lot
of team games, are always on your headset, and have a group of friends that you play with, then Battlefield 3 is
definitely for you. You have more opportunities to exercise strategies and your skills in using the variety of
weapon attachments in Battlefield 3.
If you just like to get the occasional pick up game and do not take things too seriously, then Call of Duty is
likely the title that you want to stick to. It is a bit easier to play and the competition is simply not as stiff
as Battlefield 3. Then again, nothing is stopping you from picking up both games!
