2021 FPS Showdown: Battlefield 2042 vs Call of Duty: Vanguard vs Halo Infinite

Brace yourselves, Connor, Sherif, and Dorrani sat down and discussed their favourite of the recent big three FPS releases.

Fall 2021 is officially FPS season, as we’ve had major entries from the big three industry shooters all drop in the same short span of time. Call of Duty: Vanguard dropped first, followed by the surprise launch of the Halo: Infinite multiplayer, and the release of Battlefield 2042. However, with all three series’ representing big at the tail-end of the year, we had to ask the decades old question…

Which is better? Call of Duty, Battlefield, or Halo? To figure out which is king, Dorrani, Connor, and Sherif sat down for a chat to cover all of the recent releases. You can check out that discussion in the video embedded above, and we'd love to read your own thoughts in the comments below!

In this discussion, topics including which game each person is playing more, the launch state, balance, and each game’s own problems are weighed up and discussed in order to decide which franchise has had the strongest outing this year. It’s obviously worth stating this if you enjoy a certain game then that’s great! This is just a fun conversation piece between the team, and all games have their own strengths and weaknesses.

It’s quite a long one, as we make sure to cover a vast number of topics and try to give each game a balanced amount of time dedicated to it, so stick it on in the background if our thoughts on the three biggest FPS releases on the year sounds interesting to you!

If you want a quick catch up on all three games, the Halo Infinite Co-op campaign and force has been pushed back until May 2022, Call of Duty Vanguard players are having a few issues with player collision, and Battlefield 2042’s anti-tank rocket launcher is really bad!
