Fans of Warzone haven’t been happy ever since these new weapons made their way into their favorite game. Even veterans of Call of Duty, such as Dr Disrespect, have called the franchise out for ruining the meta. Previously, fans had been facing the wrath of MAC-10 SMG, and Akimbo pistols from Cold War.

The DMR 14 is a semi-automatic tactical rifle. The reason this gun feels so powerful is due to its low recoil and high fire rate. Players need simply line up their aim on the enemy and get the kill in just a few shots. Moreover, the range on the weapon is also pretty decent. Hence, being far away from enemies won’t save a player either.

It is undeniable that Warzone has seen its fair share of broken weapons before. However, Cold War guns are made to run on a completely different engine. Therefore, as Treyarch tries to integrate them into Warzone, which runs on another engine, things are bound to get chaotic.

Initially, it will take the developers a while to find out a solution for this. Whether they work on an overall nerf or one just for Warzone is up to them. Till then, players will have to figure out a way to deal with the Black Ops Cold War meta on their own. Finally, if it becomes hard for them to counter this meta, they always have the option of jumping on the bandwagon.
