The latest Call of Duty: Vanguard update (March 10th) was supposed to bring a number of buffs for sniper rifles in multiplayer. However, Sledgehammer Games tweeted an update revealing that not all the changes to sniper rifles were implemented when the update went live.
Initially, the update was said to include faster ADS time and less sway while walking for the Type 99 sniper rifle. The 3‑Line was set to receive a decrease to the flinch and sway to better maintain accuracy. Lastly, the Kar98k was supposed to get a decrease to its ADS time.
“Unfortunately, not all of the sniper rifle balance changes outlined in today’s communications made it live,” Sledgehammer said. “The complete pass will be integrated with our mid-season update.”
Sledgehammer Games did not reveal which sniper changes didn’t make it with the update, but a video from YouTuber XclusiveAce explained that his weapon tests revealed that the Kar98k had its flinch reduced, but the Type 99 sniper did not. Additionally, neither the Type 99 nor the Kar98k had their ADS speeds increased.
The changes will be coming during the mid-season update, which will be arriving around March 23rd. Players will have to wait around a week for the missing changes to implemented.
