Call of Duty: Warzone’s sniper rifles have felt powerful in Season 2, but players should be aware of some weapon balancing changes coming in the future, in attempts to balance things out in Season 3.
The news comes form Ted Timmins, who words on Warzone as Raven Software’s senior creative director. On April 5th, Timmins was interviewed on a Twitch stream hosted by Complexity’s Baka Bros. After a talk about overpowered snipers and the increase in the use of the weapons on Caldera, Timmins confirmed changes would be coming to Warzone’s sniper rifles.
The developer responded by saying that Raven Software’s weapons team is listening, and they do plan on shifting the meta for sniper rifles. “I think we would all agree it’s long overdue,” Timmins said. “The sniper meta hasn’t changed in what feels like forever.”
Timmins added they wanted to have more of a conversation closer to Season 3, as the developer didn’t want to “gas up the change” while not knowing the full extent of the weapon balancing.
Timmins also discussed a recent Raven Software interview where the developer confirmed that Warzone’s Verdansk map would not be returning to rotation. Players will just have to deal with Caldera and Rebirth Island until Activision releases Warzone 2 later this year alongside Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
