Battlefield 1 is a very challenging game, as a result, not all fans are satisfied with the game mechanics. There have been many hot debates among Battlefield 1 players: are Medics really doing their job, are cavalry too hard to kill, and more.
The latest topic of debate on the Battlefield 1 forums divides gamers again: pilots claim that the AA gun is too powerful and should be nerfed, while AA supporters suggest that pilots should actually learn how to properly fly a plane.
Is the AA gun too powerful in Battlefield 1?
In its current state, AA is downright broken. Even a monkey can simply point it in the direction of a plane, hold down click, and be guaranteed a quick kill. And don’t even get me started on how it not only badly damages planes, but also knocks them out of control… which makes it virtually impossible for pilots to attempt and maneuver away from danger.
Overall, the problem is that both sides are over-exaggerating the issue and refuse to find the middle-ground. DICE has a long history of doing a poor job at balance in the past, which explains why Battlefield 1 gamers tend to overreact.
The real problem is not AA’s damage capabilities, it’s its range. On most of the maps, if the AA is placed in the middle of the map, this means that planes can’t get anywhere close to the action. Daring to fly above the area, is synonym to suicide.
Other players suggest that one solution that needs to be put in place immediately is for AA’s rounds to travel much slower and make it possible for pilots to actually escape their wrath by performing advanced maneuvers.
For the time being, DICE has yet to issue any comments on this situation. If you’re interested, you can check out this Battlefield 1 forum thread and see how the debate unfolds.
