Call of Duty Warzone has been under a lot of criticism lately from the community. Players have been constantly urging Infinity Ward to pay attention to the issues in the game. They want the developers to bring about a long-term solution to the issue of hackers. Moreover, they also want a balanced and stable meta in the game.

With the integration of Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, the meta of the Battle Royale game has been extremely unstable. There are a lot of powerful weapons with high drop rates that have less or no counters. The DMR 14, MAC-10, and Akimbo Pistols are all one sees during Warzone games.

Out of all these, recently, the DMR-14 has constantly been a pain to play against. While the community has already made it clear how much they hate the DMR, a celebrity joined the list recently. In his recent tweet, popular American rapper Lil Uzi Vert wished for Infinity Ward to nerf the DMR.

Fans go crazy over Lil Uzi Vert in Call of Duty Warzone

As soon as Lil Uzi sent out that tweet, his fans got to work. They had figured out his Warzone username a while ago, back in 2020. The rapper goes by the gamer tag ‘yungfishscalee’ which he shared on his Instagram story few months ago.

His association with the franchise goes long back as the players have played a lot of Call of Duty titles up until Warzone. He is also a part of the long list of fans dedicated to the franchise of FPS games by Activision. Although most of the fans’ voice should be enough for Infinity Ward to take cognizance of the matter, Lil Uzi Vert’s tweet makes it more seriously.

With a fan base reaching millions, Lil Uzi has the ability to single-handedly market the hell out of Call of Duty Warzone. If Activision ends up disappointing these big fishes, it is going to end up with a huge hole in its purse. With the constant reminder, Infinity Ward hopefully ends up dealing with the broken meta soon.
