Mike Wewerka commented on Call of Duty WW2 new multiplayer game modes and guns leak:
Again, you're missing the point. Yes, they have micro-transactions. That wasn't the argument. You didn't want to pay for boxes that offer "perks" to keep up with little kids. COD WW2 loot boxes aren't like Black Ops 3 or Infinite Warfare, the guns don't offer an advantage, other than giving the player more XP, allowing them to prestige faster, but in matches, there's no advantage.
So your point of not buying COD for your PS4 because of loot boxes or kids whipping you is moot. You can play COD without ever buying a loot box (you get a bunch free from leveling and completing missions) and not feel like you're losing to kiddies, that unless you suck in general, but I don't know personally enough to say that and won't judge you either way.
Either way, you can buy, play and enjoy COD without buying a loot box.
