After nerfing the overpowered MP5, it appears Treyarch is setting its sights on changing the values of another Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War weapon, while the studio also also provided some wider context on its approach to buffing and nerfing weapons in the multiplayer shooter.
Lead game designer Tony Flame posted an image on Twitter recently that suggests the M82 sniper rifle will see a buff in an upcoming update. “Next order of business,” Flame wrote, attaching an image of the weapon and a car getting a buff.
Flame also provided some higher-level context regarding how Treyarch approaches buffing and nerfing weapons. He said the studio’s main imperative is to focus on keeping the time-to-kill (TTK) values where they should be across all weapons.
