Battlefield 2042’s Advantage Over CoD: Vanguard According to Shroud

Battlefield 2042’s Advantage Over CoD: Vanguard According to Shroud

We recently got confirmation for Battlefield 2042’s delay, and the announcement has stirred quite a bit of conversation online. But it is the game’s new release date that has been the topic of discussion for many people, as it is now launching after Call of Duty: Vanguard. Shroud, a Twitch streamer, has also shared his thoughts on this development and why he feels Battlefield may have an advantage.

Prompted by his viewers to offer his thoughts on the two games, Shroud opened up on whether he feels Battlefield 2042 may be in trouble for launching after CoD: Vanguard. After all, CoD is definitely the more successful between the two. Shroud offered some supportive comments for Battlefield 2042 and said the game has one “advantage” over Vanguard.

Shroud stated he feels Battlefield 2042 has better gunplay, a term used to describe the feeling of a shooter’s weapons and the overlapping experience. The streamer said that the difference between the two is “tiny,” but if he had to choose, he said Battlefield’s gameplay “is better than Call of Duty’s.”

Shroud will be playing both games when they launch, so his opinion is based on past experiences with the franchises and may even change after playing the latest installments.

In a recent Twitch stream, Shroud watched an overview of Battlefield 2042’s recent Specialist gameplay showcases.

He didn’t provide much when it came to commentary, but he did show interest in Specialist Webster Mackay with his Nimble trait that lets him move faster while aiming down sights. Mackay also employs a grappling hook allowing him to attach to surfaces, which matches Shroud’s fast-paced and high-movement play style.


FPS like Battlefield and Call of Duty are Shroud’s bread and butter, as he grew his initial audience as a professional Counter-Strike player, winning several tournaments between 2015 and 2017 as part of the Cloud9 team. He has recently been playing titles such as PUBG: Battlegrounds, Valorant, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, and Escape from Tarkov.

About Battlefield 2042

Battlefield 2042 is the seventeenth installment in the Battlefield series developed by DICE and published by Electronic Arts. The game is a first-person online multiplayer shooting title. This installment of Battlefield will not feature a single-player campaign mode.

The year is 2042 and the world is in ruins. Natural disasters run rampant, ocean levels have risen, the world economy has collapsed, and the US and Russia are at war. You step into the shoes of a non-patriated soldier – a soldier without a side. The games’ story will be revealed through episodic additions, allowing players to create a future for themselves and other non-pats in a world on the brink of destruction.
