Boring yet immersive shooter

A buggy game, Swearing, and somewhat bloody military action game reaches a new low for this famous series. 2042 is the lowest point in the franchise of best-seller FPS shooter games. The game is super bugged. Recently I found another bug where the entire game turns white and collapses in on itself. The game is not as bad as the other games in the Battlefield series, but there is some blood. No sexual references whatsoever, and a great way to team up for a quick-pased, accurate military shooter, with the Most fun, experimental weapons to see the franchise. Battlefield 2042 is the worst shooter this year, 2022, but joy and teamwork can be found under an extremely heavy reign of bugs, sweats, and overall simplicity.
