Some players feel that the Kar98k and the Swiss K31 are overpowered, and fans have been asking the developers to nerf them. Now, some are suggesting adding flinch to them to fix this problem.

Snipers have become a staple of the Call of Duty franchise, and Warzone has some amazing Sniper Rifles to choose from. Players love testing their might with these against players with fully automatic weapons.

Some Warzone players aren’t happy with how the developers have dealt with balancing snipers, suggesting that that flinch should be added to the Kar98k and Swiss K31 to counter their “overpowered” nature.

Reddit user CaptivatingRun uploaded a clip of his Warzone gameplay in the game’s subreddit. In this clip, they used their Assault Rifle to fire at a distant enemy who was carrying a Sniper Rifle.

Despite landing multiple shots on their opponent, the Redditor was surprised to see the enemy immediately turn around and take them down with a single shot without flinching.

The fact that the enemy was able to aim perfectly this quick while being shot is why the Redditor suggested that the developers should add flinch to the Kar98k and Swiss.

The comments were divisive, with some users agreeing with the post and others blaming the player for what happened. Despite this, many of them still feel that these weapons could benefit from added flinch.

“At least they should give higher caliber more flinch power. It’s ridiculous that you hit with a 7.62 and they don’t have any kind of flinch,” wrote one user.

This isn’t the first time that fans have made these suggestions, and a small nerf to the flinch of these weapons may be what they need to bring them into balance.
