Black Ops Cold War MP5 damage range nerfed
Treyarch has nerfed the MP5 in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War after fan complaints.
The detailed Gunsmith in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War lets players see detailed stats and information on weapons. The stats allow players to see damage, range, effective range, and more, and it showcases how different attachments effect those values.
One of the most overpowered weapons the game is the MP5 SMG, which is the first SMG available in Black Ops Cold War. Fans have been asking Treyarch for a nerf on the weapon, as lobbies are filled with the gun.
The effective damage range of the MP5 was listed as 15.24m in the Gunsmith at the launch of the gam. Now, looking at the Gunsmith on November 18, the damage range is now listed at 10.16m.
Here’s the current values in the Gunsmith (via TheExclusvieAce):
Treyarch has confirmed in a tweet that they have reduced the effective damage range by 33% and adjusted the initial weapon recoil for ‘Submachine Gun Alpha’ which is the MP5.
Treyarch encourages fans to go and checkout other SMGs in the category and experience other weapons while playing Black Ops Cold War.
More extensive weapon & streak tuning updates are planned to arrive at Season One or before.
