Weapon setup

It would be nice if you could set up your weapon choice before your in game. This would not hold up you from joining the game and give you more time to choose the best loadout for your player.

You kinda can. The game will remember your last loadout per class, so if you largely use the same loadout in a class it'll be there all set up for you. You can also save presets along the right side.

Someday I belive we'll get a load out manager within the the main menu Customization screen where you can tweak presets without being in a game.

I would also suggest changing the background while customizing weapons to see things better
