The TEC-9 SMG is one of the newest additions in Black Ops Cold War Season 5, but many players are claiming that this new weapon is making the game less fun to play.

There is plenty of exciting new content to enjoy in Season 5 of Black Ops Cold War, including a new Scorestreak and the new TEC-9 SMG. This weapon has two unique attachments that can change its fire type.

However, fans consider this semi-automatic weapon to be a bit overpowered, with many claiming that the TEC-9 makes other SMGs useless. Now, some players are saying that the weapon is ruining Season 5.

Reddit user imadjabras highlighted the issues with the TEC-9 in a new post in the Black Ops Cold War subreddit, claiming that the game is currently not fun because of this weapon.

“It is impossible to win gunfights with any other gun vs a TEC-9 (maybe EM2), and it’s frustrating because you have to pick the TEC-9 yourself if you want to stand a chance, and that is just not fun,” wrote the user.

They followed this up by asking the developers to bring a mid-season nerf to the weapon soon.

Many of the commenters agreed with this post. “Totally agree, I can only play Hardcore to use other weapons and have a fair chance or party games. F the TEC-9 all my homies hate the TEC-9,” wrote one user.

Players have been stating that Multiplayer is in a “bad place” right now because of this weapon and, the Black Ops Cold War developers are aware of these complaints. They’ve promised weapon balancing changes for the TEC-9.
