looter shooter

The tremendously catchy loop of intense gameplay combined with the everyday loot drops that has established itself as one of the major gaming trends of the last decade with the games like Destiny, War frame, and The Division expanding upon Borderlands 1 & 2 formula and by the addition of several online elements and customary arrival of the new content (a package also recognized as Games-as-a-service) in order to keep up the players totally hooked on as long as is possible.

War frame

The gameplay revolves about eponymous War frames, which are on the whole suits of armor characters wear during the battle missions. The game offers fast-paced gameplay featuring both the ranged and the encounter weapons as well as lots of Cool Park our moves that also turn any of the tedious mission into an explosion of ninja-styled jumps and wall-runs combined with outstanding gunplay and visceral melee attacks.

Destiny 2

The main power of Destiny 2 is its supreme gunplay. Every bat feels different and even different guns of the same type feel unique. This is in all probability the only game that feels better when played with a controller than with a mouse and keyboard because thunder effects add so much to the overall enjoyment of shooting big guns and slaughter various alien species.

Anthem

The battle is great. Volatile, adrenaline pumping, with lots of elemental combos and various playstyles depending on your class. Different from most other looter shooters, Anthem offers only one of its kind gameplay experiences with each of its four classes.

While Rangers, the default class every player starts with, are a bit uninteresting and represent a classic shooter mixture between occasional usage of abilities and classic gunplay, the other three classes are much more thrilling and interesting to play with.

Pros:

  • outstanding visuals
  • the excellent battle that feels like playing some excellent action RPG and not a loot shooter
  • Great for players who don’t have a load of free time

Cons:

  • absent endgame
  • be short of content (everything can be completed in about 30 hours)
  • Not for unaccompanied players

Division 2

The game doesn’t offer as exhilarating gunplay as Destiny 2 or Anthem but its cover-based gameplay is where the game shines. every set-piece plays different, everyone come across plays like a standalone game of chess, each boss encounter call for from players to think a bit and to plan their moves in advance.

Missions follow this wonderful design; each is a standalone chess table where you and your teammates have to lend a hand in order to cover your flanks, to close dead angles, to lure the opponent into choke points, and to use the environment to push onward and kill enemies.

Pros:

  • Tons of content
  • outstanding endgame
  • attractive visuals
  • The game offers the most excellent and most satisfying loot system out of all loot shooters (sans Borderlands)
  • an astonishing open world that has zero loading screens

Cons:

  • Some glitches that are found at some stage in the endgame
  • Not so many unusual weapons to grind

Wait for Borderlands 3 by playing the original trilogy

My proposal is to make sure out the unique Borderlands (which received an obvious facelift in the form of the GOTY edition) and Borderlands 2 (which in recent times received HD texture pack) and miss out the Pre Sequel because that one is way underneath the quality of the original two games.
