Apparently, every title in the series retains its popularity for a maximum of two years. In the mean-time, the developers rush to make a new game which opens up the possibility of coding errors, bugs, and unbalanced meta.

Activision has taken the first step to curb this issue by synchronizing Modern Warfare, Black Ops Cold, and Warzone. As a result, all three games now get new seasons together, and players can use their weapons from BOCW and MW in Warzone, and vice versa.

Former Call of Duty pro claims Modern Warfare weapons give more aim assist than Black Ops Cold War guns

Former Call of Duty pro player, Tyler Polchow, is one of the most celebrated players/coaches in the community. He’s been a champ in 2014, and definitely has the experience to analyze weapons.

In a recent tweet, TeeP claimed that MW weapons have more aim assistance than Black Ops Cold War guns:

TeeP used a Modern Warfare MP5 and a BOCW MP5 to support his statement. He put a barrel on both the guns and tested their aim assist while aiming down sight. Surprisingly, the BOCW MP5 seemed a lot smoother than the Modern Warfare variant.

In another test, TeeP compared the Kar98k in BOCW and the Pelington 703/R700 in Modern Warfare:

Testing the snipers was more beneficial than Assault Rifles owing to the difference in their iron sight zoom. As per TeeP, aiming on the Pellington 703 felt like sand, whereas the Kar 98k felt like mud. To say the least, this was the most innovative, yet correct way of conveying his message.

Even though not many players have compared the weapons in Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War up till now, the claims by TeeP certainly seem legit at the moment. If these differences turn out to be true, Treyarch might have to come up with weapon tunings as soon as possible.
