The Warzone 2 devs also commented on Bomb Drones ahead of the update, promising to remove them from the game while they figure out how to balance the Killstreak.

Since the KV Broadside made its way to Warzone 2 at the start of Season 2, players have been vocal about the broken Shotgun. The KV Broadside immediately shot up the ranks and is currently one of the most popular weapons in Warzone 2.

The devs finally broke the silence on March 10 as they confirmed that the KV Broadside will soon receive a nerf: “Season 02 Reloaded will include several global weapon balances, including damage reduction to the KV Broadside and Dragon’s Breath rounds.”

Players will be pleased to hear that the KV Broadside will have its damage nerfed on March 15, and the positive news didn’t stop there.

Another major complaint that players have been vocal about is the overpowered Bomb Drone Killstreak. Warzone 2 players felt as though the Killstreak had few counters since attempting to shoot it down often resulted in death for the targeted player.
