Because it focuses more on reflexes, and skill with a gun than BF. BF is primarily tactics, strategies, and working as a team. But doesn't require you to be as quick on your mouse and keyboard as the COD franchise.
Also, I wish people would stop accusing BF2/3 as just "a game where you camp". Yes, you can camp and do alright, but you can do much better if you use your recourses as they are meant to be used. That means, if you have a silencer, you can safely move behind enemy lines without being noticed as easily. If you are assault in BF3, you can use your paddles (defibs) to revive fallen comrades. When you play as support in BF3 you can drop ammo and provide suppressive fire to allow your team to advance. And finally, recon can spot potential threats, and snipe the occasional enemy.
It is the same with COD, you can camp, or you can play it how it is meant to be played. That doesn't mean running around like a crazy person, but using your environment. Use the obstacles as cover, and advance towards the enemy. If you have an RPG, help your team mates by destroying helis.
I just wanted to set this straight, BF is not better than COD, and COD is not better than BF. They are just different. Unique in their own way to match a players liking. I like BF3, but that does not mean I think COD is just a "total noob game". Both games are fine. They are just meant for different people. So stop arguing about it.
BF3 has cover for you to use everywhere, all of which are destructible. They have concrete barriers, walls, buildings, bazaar stands, vehicles, gas and oil pipelines, tanks, and on and on.
Want to destroy aircraft, use a stinger or a multitude of AA weapons.
What it comes down to is Dice has essentially added everything you could think of. You can do just about anything in BF3 and the better you play as a team the better you are. I can run around COD lone wolf style and win matches, you don't need a team.
BTW good luck getting the rush that is a dog fight in MW3, since you knwo you can pilot your own planes and helicopters. Also, tank fights and generally controlling vehicles.
Oh, scripted destruction.
