So recently I found my alt account (tehswordninja_2) and I found I was level 5 on that account, so I decided to play some missions.
It felt like a whole different game.
Finding a piece of uncommon gear? Hell yeah! Even more hell yeah if its an elite gear.
Compared to level 55, where i don't even blink when i find 20 guns at a military base and I innerly sigh because i have to click some extra times for the recycler. This often extends to rares and often uniques. I rarely ever get that "holy shit I just found something amazing" feeling because most of the time, I've got something better, or its simply got terrible stats, and I definitely sigh whenever i find a rare, because rares are simply useless at level 55.
I also feel like there is a lot more variety, different playstyles. There's a pretty wide selection of melee weapons you can find at this level, but at level 50-55 all there is is the god awful tacblade (excluding crafted melee). Guns are also pretty varied. 3 pistols in a 4-5 level cap compared to just 2 from level 45-55 (and lets be honest, the manning is broken and no one uses it). And I could list more examples. Crafting also is a bit more focused on as well imo.
Zombies die easily, but they can still be a threat. I like this over dumping half a magazine into a zombie and seeing it still walk around like normal. It feels a lot more realistic and doesn't break immersion as much.
I also like how tasks give you things besides exp. I'd like to see more tasks giving vintage weapons, both higher level and lower level. Just to spice things up a tad.
Overall, I feel like in a way there is more to do at lower levels. Sure, there's the island at level 50, but that gets old after a month or so.
