The Grau is extremely popular right now and for good reason. The range of this assault rifle matches that of a marksman rifle and is exceptionally accurate. Grau is easy to handle and is powerful in any range, making it lethal in unfair proportions. As a result, the players wielding this gun stay at a huge advantage margin than others.

It has by now become common knowledge among gamers that the balance of weapons in both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone is poor right now. These games could really use a weapon balance change and most probably Warzone will be getting it in the next mid-season update.

The Grau might get nerfed, finally

A Call of Duty: Warzone player recently posted a tweet asking developers to nerf the Grau. The Grau has become extremely overpowered and according to this player, most of the kill cams are from a Grau. The player added that the Grau is ruining Warzone.

Joe Cecot, Co-Design Director of Multiplayer at Infinity Ward, replied to this tweet saying that the devs have a batch of weapon tuning that is said to take effect by the midseason update. This means that the devs are trying to ensure weapon balance in the game and Grau will be getting the much needed nerf (possibly).

We have a batch of weapon tuning in the works for the mid season update. Patch notes will outline when they drop 🙂 https://t.co/QlaTguFOLJ

This midseason update might bring the balance these games need

The previously nerfed weapons such as the 725 (kind of a ranged shotgun with great accuracy) took a lot of attempts to be nerfed properly (although some players still consider the 725 to be overpowered). This is the first attempt at nerfing the Grau so it might take some time before the game achieves the desired weapon balance. But as soon as the tuned weapons hit the game, it is expected to ensure an improved balance.
