JGOD Warzone Cold War Optics Stealth Buff

Warzone stats wizard JGOD has given a community a look at a recent stealth buff for the Black Ops Cold War optics that look to have provided a noticeable reduction in recoil that players will no doubt want to take advantage of when playing.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War brought a plethora of content into Warzone when integrated into the Call of Duty battle royale. A large portion of this content was the various optics that players could use on their Black Ops Cold War weapons.

JGOD, who is known as the top content creator in the community when it comes to testing various things in Warzone, recently explained how a stealth buff had been applied to a couple of the optics available for players to use on their Cold War weapons in Warzone that will provide players who use them with a strong reduction in recoil.

The first test that JGOD explains in his video shows how the Axial 3x scope now provides a 20% reduction in vertical recoil compared to the iron sights for the Krig 6 firing when standing, which is the current meta Assault Rifle most players are using in Season 3.

Now, the SUSAT Multizoom Cold War optic recently emerged as the go-to weapon sight for many players. Still, JGOD explains that the Axial 3x actually provides a larger statistical reduction in recoil.

However, the nature of the Axial 3x zooming in more than the SUSAT Multizoom and having greater idle sway provides more of a visual increase in recoil, leading to more of a placebo effect regarding the SUSAT Multizoom having less recoil.

When it comes to mounting, JGOD explains that the overall reduction in recoil that having your weapon mounted in Warzone results in there not being as much as a noticeable difference in recoil reduction for the Axial 3x and SUSAT Multizoom when compared to firing a weapon with these sights when you are standing.

Moving on to the Stoner 63 LMG, JGOD shows how the same test resulted in the Axial giving the Stoner 63 a 10% reduction in vertical recoil and similarly less recoil reduction for the SUSAT Multizoom.

When it came to having the Stoner 63 mounted, JGOD found that the Axial 3x still provided a Cold War stealth buff of around a 10% reduction in recoil.

In contrast, the SUSAT Multizoom did not provide any recoil reduction for the Stoner when mounted.

Thanks to the work of JGOD, Warzone players now know that the Cold War stealth buff for the Axial 3x and SUSAT Multizoom make these two optics the best choices for players currently in Season 3.
