Call of Duty: Warzone 2
Warzone players are already calling for an MG 82 LMG nerf
The new MG 82 has landed in Warzone Season 4 and players are already calling for it to be nerfed due to its apparent overpowered nature.
Warzone Season 4’s new LMG, the MG 82, hasn’t been out for long, but players are already calling for it to be nerfed.
Warzone Season 4 has introduced some new weapons into the mix, along with some changes to previous ones in the patch notes.
Players seem to be content with the Verdansk map changes, Red Door fast travel system, the Armored Truck, and even the new C58 Assault Rifle. However, the same can’t be said about the new MG 82 LMG.
Season 4 brought a new Battle Pass for players to level up through and unlock various items while doing so. The developers even reduced the amount of XP needed to progress through levels this season, allowing players to gain the new items earlier.
The MG 82 is the tier 15 unlock, allowing players to experience the new LMG fairly early on. Also, some players will opt to buy a bundle with an MG 82 weapon variant to use in Warzone, which will likely have decent attachments.
Further, the MG 82 is also available in floor loot, so players have been picking it up and testing it out since the start of Season 4.
Players call for Warzone MG 82 nerf
This has led to discovering how strong it can be, with players picking it up off the floor and trying it out. However, players have been complaining about the weapon over on Reddit, calling for the developers to nerf the new LMG.
One Reddit post entitled “MG82 needs to be nerfed, ASAP” by user whatwasthesound95 said:
“From what I’ve seen so far – this is the only weapon in warzone that might rival pre nerf DMR – its just disgustingly OP. For Raven talking about how they want to increase the TTK…why would they release this weapon? Balance and everything was headed in the right direction until this thing came along.”
Further, another Reddit post by kentawnwillyams also expressed the same opinion, with the title stating that the “MG82 is a joke.”
Clearly, some players aren’t happy with the new LMG, with the post above even claiming that the developers didn’t even playtest the weapon before adding it in Season 4. Players are evening saying that the floor loot versions of the weapon will “outgun anything at medium ranges with ease and get you killed before you can even react.”
This does seem to be a trend for every new season of Warzone, where one particular weapon stands out as the most overpowered in the game.
As the developers were fairly quick to nerf the AMAX, which was very dominant in Season 3, hopefully, we can also see a change for the MG 82 in the future to help the overall balancing of the Call of Duty battle royale.
