Please tell me you are gonna have to level up weapons and armor. And not just give em to people. A little bit of grind never hurt anyone. And it makes the game a lot more playable. Kinda how destiny was before they went and messed up their whole system and catered to casuals and streamers. Would love to test the beta when it comes out. Game looks awesome, would rather it be delayed to be good than rushed to be *.
Upgrading armor (the Javelins) seems inevitable.
We saw in the last trailer that weapons can be found in the field as loot, though It's possible if not probable that such weapons may be further enhanced by customization or gear slots.
We should know some more at EA Play 9-11 June.
