title says it all. i honestly find it hard to believe that weapons were low on the list when it came to the last community survey as literally almost everyone would be happy with them. I've seen them be asked for time and time again over these last few months and Ben seems to just put his priorities first, which is pretty frustrating considering it's heroes. what makes it even more frustrating is that he constantly ignores the fact that people want more trooper content.

    They’re making an announcement this month, I wouldn’t be surprised if we heard some good news at gamescom regarding weapons.
    i hope you are right my friend, i hope you are right.

    I think u need to remember we hear the voice of all the people on the forums consistently, but there is a lot of people that did the survey. I dont think they should develop new weapons for the sake of it, just add a nerfed version of every reinforcement weapon and ability to the class which suits it the most, then we keep getting reinforcements weapons and starcards.
  • Just because weapons are not on top of the community survey doesn't mean we will never see any new weapons.

    Almost 2 years without new weapons, surely this must be the month....
    Nobody wants new weapons more than me, but I won’t get my hopes up for this months announcement.
    I truly hope I’m wrong though.

    I thought them finally asking about them on the last community survey finally meant that they would be coming in the near future, especially considering how much people have been asking for them. Now I really don’t think they are coming at all which is honestly sad, the weapon choice in this game is subpar at best. Which is odd considering how many blasters they could use that are already in the game.
  • I’d like some new weapons. 
    Everyone does

    Yeah that's what trooperlords tend to do :joy:

    Its important to remember that they already have plans of what they are going to release for the upcoming months before the survey went out, new weapons probably only became seriously considered after the cry which is why it was put in the survey. I would like an assault rifle with a bit more of a quicker fire rate as well as a sniper that hits harder but acts as a bolt action.

    I'm actually surprised they haven't. And I mean it from a strategic/financial perspective. 

    I mean adding weapons that would need to be acquired by levelling up and playing more would seem to be a foolproof way to continue interest. 

    But it would still require time and resources. And it would take away or add to the problem(depending on how you want to look at it) of adding layers to damaged ones. 

    They need to really fix thEit problem and bugs before adding anything. Weapons would be ideal but if they are bound to be buggy so what is the point?

    my thoughts
  • Adding new weapons will probably take like 5 years.
  • I believe he actually said that new weapons were towards the middle of the list, as he said they were a bit lower than the top 4 things (large scale maps, heroes, QoL, reinforcements).

    New weapons would be cool. They should give us the choice between pointy lightsabers and not-pointy lightsabers. Maybe different colors hilts? Those are some new weapons I can get behind!

  • I heard that anthem and bfv are both getting new weapons
  • IMHO, more blasters and Starfighter content is what this game needs the most now.
  • Need. Moar.

    Blasters and more maps for pretty much all game modes other then HvV
  • @ZephanUnbound
    Are these really the most voted things? Exactly the things they have been giving us?

    Sorry F8RGE, I don't buy it. These polls are definetly rigged
    You underestimate the power of people wanting the wrong things

  • This game does not need new weapons
    Neither does it need more heroes...
    New heroes innovate and change up the gameplay in almost every mode. New weapons can't do that lol.
    Weapons actually affect more modes than heroes; GA, CS, Blast, Strike, and Extraction; compared to GA, CS, HvV, and HS for Heroes. However, DICE has said the 3 most played modes are GA, CS, and HvV, and heroes are in all 3, so it does kind of make sense that DICE would prioritize new heroes.

  • It's sad, isn't it. Just give us one new weapon for each class. T-21, SE-14C and T-21B are already in the game files so that's already a new weapon for Heavy, Officer and Specialists as those weapons are ideal for those classes. Pump out the E-11D for Assault and it'll be a good drop.

    I would like more blasters i dont feel like its complete at all, an ar with a much quicker fire rate would be nice, a bolt action like sniper than can 150 bodyshot anything would be nice aswell, an officer pistol which can have an akimbo attachment would be awesome. Not sure about the heavy class.

    Thanks for the laugh...

    New weapons do that too. They provide more playstyles, more variety... heroes are the same OP **** in this game.
    The blasters that are currently in the game fit all playstyles already, any new weapons are plain filler. 
    Heroes aren't OP, it's just that the ones you encounter are actually skilled.
    Heroes have been filler as well

    Exactly! And even if DICE don't want to create completely new weapons like the E-11D (what would be a shame, since this is the correct weapon for the death trooper), the EE-3 is already in the game, so they can use this one. In addition to that it would be really nice to use every base weapon (another 24 different weapons, already in the game!) across all factions and getting modifications for all of them.

    How would new weapons make a difference? I think the community spoke and new weapons are mid importance at most. When I hear new weapons all I think is the amount of time that will be spent trying to balance everything after the launch. New weapons will be a big update and I think the effort should be directed towards maps, current characters, and bugs. We need a fly swatter before any new weapons. 
    Nothing about this game is balanced so who cares, I would be fine with weapons reverted back to launch status. .

    I feel the same.
    Reset all weapons back to launch status.

    All the heroes are unique and play very differently, so therefore they are not filler.

    Got nothing to say.
