In the recent Battlemode trailer I noticed two interesting aspects of the BFG:

 

1.   The weapon has a much higher ammo count is now much higher (90 cells) and consumes 30 cells per shot.

 

2.   It now has a weapon mod with a visible icon right next to the ammo count.

I wonder if this means we're receiving the cut BFG mods from Doom 2016 since some of those mods (i.e., quake 3 one) would justify the need to divide the ammo into smaller cells.

I just wonder how much can you do with BFG mods besides the BFG10K from Quake 3 and the cut alpha/beta "christmas lights" fire from the pre release versions.

It is pretty hard to make a player pick anything else a super weapon could do over it just being a super weapon, so maybe just make it a badass super weapon with different styles. It could fire a giant laser. Or shoot lightning tendrils that pummel enemies at an absurd distance.

BFG II

The theoretical design for the BFG-9000 was first put forward by the R&D department in the Advanced Research Complex, and the concept was later given its own funding program. The BFG Division was formed to develop a working design. Several prototype weapons have since been made. The prototypes never went into full production due to numerous testing accidents and the deadly radiation spikes produced. Previous versions of the weapon had slightly different energy patterns to the current generation. Some released solitary Argent spheres that unleash a deadly wave upon impact, others formed an Argent laser that cuts through anything in its path. The current prototype, the BFG-9000, creates Argent streams that seek out targets and boils them alive.

I'm betting on these.

If I remember correctly, the four mods cut from 2016 were a flamethrower, a quake 3 BFG fire mode, a railgun shot, and even more powerful argent sphere that traveled at an arc. Honestly, any of these are fair game.

The argent sphere is referencing the OG BFG and the Argent laser is referencing the unmaker from doom 64 in my opinion
