The Groza is a great Assualt Rifle in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, but now in Season 5, it has received an important change that makes it even better.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Season 5 brings new content to both games to keep gameplay fun and exciting. As well as the usual new battle pass to get through, players also have a new weapon meta to try out and see how much the buffs and nerfs have affected certain weapons.

Having said that, it seems the Groza received a quality-of-life buff in Black Ops Cold War that many players are happy with, making the weapon even more viable than it was previously.

The Groza has been a pretty decent weapon since its release in the first season of Black Ops Cold War. The weapon is great for mid to close-range engagements, featuring a fast fire rate for the Assualt Rifle class.

Having said that, many weren’t happy with the way the ADS zoom felt and looked on the weapon, with many feeling as if the weapon should be slimmed down and zoomed out.

Thankfully, the Season 5 update for Cold War has recognized and given this issue some attention, which Reddit user and player Caipirots noticed soon after release.

The players showed off a side-by-side image of the Groza’s iron sights before and after the Season 5 patch, presenting the small, but meaningful difference.

The Season 5 update ultimately increased the FOV for players when they ADS with the Groza, making the iron sights smaller and more clear to see through.

A few comments on the Reddit post suggested that the change is a small one and that the pictures should have been taken in the same spot to truly see the difference. However, the image still presents the change and shows a noticeable difference, which is enough to satisfy those who previously felt the issue.

It’s great to see the developers giving players small changes like this, as it really does improve the game’s quality of life.
