The MG 82 has been nerfed in Call of Duty: Warzone
As previously promised, Raven Software has delivered a nerf for Call of Duty: Warzone‘s new MG 82 light machine gun.
The latest update for the game decreases the weapon’s maximum damage, minimum damage, maximum damage range, head shot multiplier, upper chest multiplier, and extremities multiplier. In addition to these changes, the weapon’s vertical and horizontal recoil has been increased.
“We had envisioned the MG 82 (BOCW) as a short to mid-range Light Machine Gun given its relatively fast handling, mobility, and rate of fire,” the developer explained. “However, it also retained many powerful LMG traits like damage profile, bullet velocity, and magazine size all while having negligible recoil. These factors in combination created one of the most dominant weapons to land in Verdansk. Do not be deceived by the magnitude of these changes. The damage per magazine and rate of fire is still top tier so we expect the MG 82 to remain viable.”
Raven Software also mentioned that it is also looking into providing “fair” and “reactable” options to deal with Dead Silence. Read the full patch notes here.
Call of Duty: Warzone is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
