Call of Duty Warzone Developers Really Need to Fix Their Weapon Balancing Before Season 3

Published 04/21/2021, 11:00 AM EDT


Call of Duty Warzone has been notorious with every content update since it first released last year. Raven Software has always done the deed of impressing players with interesting gameplay content. However, each update also brought forward glitches and bugs.

Further to that, weapon tuning has been a grave issue for Raven Software. More often than not, we get weapons that are better than other guns in the game. Now tuning some weapons once in a while is a part of any FPS multiplayer. But to change up a weapon into something broken, makes the game unfair by many means.

Not only does it make the game monotonous, with every player using the same weapon with no choice, it also makes the game experience unenjoyable. We saw this right from the starting season when the Grau suddenly started melting players all around Verdansk. It was such a dependable weapon then that even with a tactical scope on; the Grau was shredding players across the map with a huge magazine and almost non-existent recoil.

Call of Duty Warzone always finds a way to include a broken weapon

After one disaster with the Grau, we expected Raven to learn quickly, but it has been a year since that first mistake. To date, we have had so many broken weapons in Warzone that now players expect at least one unfair gun to come with every weapon tuning update.

The latest exploit was the DMR 14 that was melting players in two shots in all ranges. Consider the Mac-10, which came out sometime later after the launch of Black Ops Cold War, is still the most used SMG in the game. Even after multiple nerfs and a broken paid blueprint, players still only trust the Mac-10 for close-range encounters.

Dual Wield Diamatti burst pistol is a replica of the broken Akimbo .357s from a few months ago. A secondary weapon that is capable of wiping squads and all players have to do is point at the cross-hair. Accuracy seems to have no meaning with these kinds of weapons. The skill level also drops drastically and players who try to use different weapons every match to keep the gameplay interesting are the ones who fall prey to tryhards running around with Dual Diamattis.

It is time Raven Software takes weapon tuning seriously after the game has been out for over a year. With Season 3 launching in less than a day, it is important they keep the weapons balanced so that we do not have another season of Mac-10s and M16s and Diamattis only. Call of Duty Warzone will breathe a sigh of relief if new weapons get a chance anytime soon.
