Warzone players call for snipers to get complete rework

A Warzone player has come up with a rework to the game’s Sniper Rifle class to make it more balanced, as many feel it is dominated by a select few.

Warzone has a wide variety of Sniper Rifles, but some have a higher pick-rate than others, so one player has come up with a potential rework to make the weapon class more balanced.

When you hop into a game of Warzone, you’ll find that running into close-range fights isn’t always the best strategy to win. Almost every team keeps a sniper on their team, and most fights are decided at range.

There are many great Sniper Rifle loadouts in the game, but a few players feel that the weapon class lacks variety, with players often falling back on guns like the Kar and Swiss. One player has suggested a potential rework for this weapon class.

Reddit user Gelium_YT posted in the Call of Duty: Warzone subreddit, presenting a potential rework that divides the Sniper Rifle class into two distinct categories with specific features.

Heavy Snipers like the HDR and ZRG 20mm would have slower ADS and worse handling and higher damage, better bullet velocity, and could break armor with chest shots.

Meanwhile, Light Sniper Rifles like the Pelington and LW3 Tundra would have the exact opposite stats. While players would need to be more precise with their aim, they’d also get faster ADS and better handling.

“This is all my personal opinion and not something that needs to be forced into the game,” wrote the user. “But it would make sniping a lot more enjoyable and give more variety to the player and not make them rely on the Kar and Swiss.”

Many of the commenters agreed with this suggestion. “This sounds wayyyyy too sensible to me,” wrote one user. “The only thing I’d have reservations about is the headshotting, I think any sniper, heavy or light, should always be a 1 shot headshot to kill.”

The Kar and Swiss have been the go-to Sniper Rifles for players in Warzone, but this change would end up making the weapon class feel better balanced, encouraging players to try out other options.

Currently, the developers have no plans to implement this system into the game, but it would be a welcome change if they do something similar in the future. For more Warzone, check out our article on how to play the Call of Duty: Vanguard Open Beta.
