Arms race takes the worst of battle royale and combines it with an absolute bare bones version of borderlands.
This game mode is not fun. It is not challenging - it is punishing.
There’s nothing challenging about being killed by a random barrel or grenade or an enemy ten miles away and then being unable to FFYL and then lose your loot - of which %99 of the time is absolute garbage anyways since the chests almost never even drop a legendary, never mind the legendary you want or with rolls you want.
This mode is punishing and not fun and I regret buying this DLC, it is absolutely awful.
Even the most popular and most modern battle royale (Warzone) at LEAST gives you a second chance. It at LEAST allows you to buy skills and other perks.
This is just a punishing slog. Who on earth thought that THIS is what fans wanted is insane. I can see why this is called designers ‘cut’, because it was so bad that it was cut.
