Weekly Round-Up Wednesday - 12th October 2022

The following post is part of a series of posts that are published every Wednesday to update readers on what I've been playing during the week (this also includes games on my "Pile of Shame"). The games to target are picked by Choicest Games contributors Choona, Luke and myself. As I'll be talking about my progress through these games, there may be spoilers ahead, especially for games containing a narrative. Consider yourself warned.

Battlefield 2042

  • Picked by Me
  • Percentage Complete = 100%

This week has been rather unpleasant since I came across at least two hackers while playing, and it's the first time I've ever come across them in Battlefield 2042. It happened plenty of times in Battlefield V but one of the refreshing things about BF2042 was the lack of hackers for what's been almost a year. But alas, I suspect since the player numbers are starting to increase again, it's also attracting unsavoury types too. I've reported the two I was pretty sure were cheating and I encourage anyone else who comes across blatantly obvious hackers to do the same.

There's a new event on at the moment called "The Liquidators". You can unlock some white cosmetics but I don't think it's worth it to play the "Tactical Conquest" mode they have on offer (which reminds me of the Squad Conquest mode from earlier Battlefield games). So, besides unlocking the usual weekly challenges for Season 2, I'm also trying to spend more time playing as Specialists I don't normally pick. I'm trying to get the hours up on Paik and my KD is at least okay with her (as opposed to most specialists I play with, except for Irish).
