Sledgehammer Games are working on a full weapon balance pass for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. They are looking through all the player data and each weapon in every class to find the best ways to adjust weapons based upon fan feedback.

Condrey on Twitter has confirmed that they are looking at buffs for weapons across classes, including shotguns.


In addition, a user asked on Twitter about if they plan on nerfing weapons or just buffing, and Condrey responded stating that they are looking at buffing current under-powered weapons, to match those weapons up with some of the over powered weapons in game.


No ETA yet on when this weapon update will be available. Stay tuned.

  • SBMM. The only problem with buffing everything is you die even quicker with every weapon rather than just a few. Though some weapons are stronger I would rather they nerf the stronger ones personally.

    • Eden Hazardous

      Please keep the comment section SBMM free, everyone is tired about it. Thank you.

      • common sense

        No. If we don’t talk about it, it won’t go away.

        • Keshav Bhat

          You do realize talking about it here won’t get anything done right? the millions of tweets they’ve gotten + via other social channels means they’re aware of it.

          • YOLT

          • PuddingAuxRais1ns

            Get outta here with your common sense.

          • common sense

            Keshav, you know what would really help? An Article on the front page of this website saying SBMM should be gone for pubs. Keep it there permanently until it is taken down.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I would love to see that.

          • Keshav Bhat

            I personally won’t be writing any articles on it unless SHGames says something official on it. Not sure if Peter or Victor have plans too. SBMM doesn’t bother me much; I enjoy Advanced Warfare a lot. Haven’t had a lot of fun in COD since MW2.

            I’d like to see it go, but talking about it all the time won’t change it cause a) coding takes a long time and b) Ive yet to see any official source say that it’s not going or it saying. They said nothing as of now.

          • Lordlau_

            Not much coding would need to be done. They would just need to remove the SBMM code and replace and implement the ones they’ve been using in all the previous cods.

          • Keshav Bhat

            Can’t do that. Other CoD matchmaking system varies greatly as the net code systems are very different each year.

          • Unreal

            very different … please give me your source and please instead of giving an opinion give me facts I know CoD from a long time and I think the code may not be as greatly varied as you think…

        • Guest

          And you guys have been at it on every article. So how did that work out for you? Exactly so shut up and comment about the article for once.

        • sk00terDA5h00ter

          Before I get started I will say that I experience minimal to 0 lag in this game. It is internet based so you will always have lag. NO MATTER WHAT. Internet is not perfect and never will be. LAG IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO.

          I think they should keep SBMM and here are my reasons.

          it stops a guy with a 5 k/d stomping my ass over and over again. Everyone bitched about system hack and how it was OP and ruined the game because you’d go into a game and die constantly. That’s not fun. And I know playing ppl better than me will help me become better but, not if I’m dieing every time i spawn in.

          It does make you a better player because Once you get better against the ppl you are playing, your KD will rise causing you to slowly progress higher and higher.

          I am also able to get some good games where I whoop ass. I’ve have a few 25 -1, 27-3, DNA bomb. and so on game scores. So it doesn’t prevent you from having a successful game.

          If people constantly beat up on ppl with a lower KD, they themselves do NOT get better. They become worse players. I experienced this playing HALO. Played HALO online for years then played without internet against family and friends. Playing ppl of a lower skill level made me a bad player and took me a long time to get my skill back once I went back online.

          Whooping everyone’s ass is not fun to me. The other night I played and ended up getting 2 DNA Bombs. Some how i ended up murdering the whole lobby for a few games. You know what I did? I quit playing after the 2nd DNA bomb because whooping up on ppl is not fun. It doesn’t make me want to continue to play. It gets boring. I like the struggle to get a good score. Its like shooting a crippled deer in deer season. It’s not fun and ppl wouldn’t do it unless they couldn’t get one the right way.

          • ccrows

            Yeah that’s great, except for the fact that if they don’t find people in my area of similar skill. (which is a F***ing joke since I live in Chicago)

            ^ Anywhoo if they don’t find people in my area, then they spread the radius out. Last night I had 4 from Mexico, 2 from Canada, and 2 from South America.

            ^ South America was the final straw with all the rubberbanding that was going on, that I just said F*** it and took a break.

            Gimmie a break, finding people in other countries to play with just for the sake of finding people of similar skill is BS!…

        • PrGamerHD

          NIGGA SHUT THE FUCK UP

      • DownWithSBMM

        It’s people like you who prevent change from happening. Sometimes change is for the better :/ Don’t be afraid young one, don’t fight it… shhhhhh……

        • jordanxbrookes

          SBMM isn’t for the greater good, it’s only good for noobs. Remember Deathstreaks? They were for the noobs. How did that turn out? Oh yeah…

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            SBMM is like playing against The Crew’s AI… A FORCED challenge, not a natural one.

          • DownWithSBMM

            You’re right, he was trying to get ppl to stop talking about sbmm, we NEED to talk about a game’s faults. We need to talk about these things as a community, gain attention to the issue to show fuckhammer that we don’t like sbmm.

      • I put on my comment as a joke, because it seems obligatory to put that somewhere in your comment when you are one of the first few comments.

    • ccrows

      Yup buffs are the biggest issue to fix with this game.

      Waaaaaay to put that on top of the priority list Condrey… *SMH*

    • Travaris

      Nerf the stronger one and every weapon in the game will suck and then everybody will be bullet sponges, pretty sure you dont want that

      • Actually that is exactly what I want. They are trying to level the playing field by buffing the weak guns and that makes the TTK even faster. I want them to nerf the best guns so it takes longer to die. Then maybe the TTK will be closer to Black Ops 2. It is a little too quick now IMO.

        • Travaris

          Too quick? If anything TTK is as slow as BO2 im this game

          • guest2

            or its called your aim is shit

    • Ak74u

      Yes you would die quicker but some weapons need a good buff like the S-12, Emp3, mk14 and amr9 most of these are very underpowered and kind of useles

    • You’re going to kill this game if you nerf the useable weapons now, you’re going to make everything awful and then everyone is going to complain how people are bullet sponges and then every other fanbase is going to make fun of us for this.

      • Who cares what the other fan bases think?? Nerfing the more powerful weapons makes it a level playing field, just in a different way. If all weapons are roughly on the same level with how long it takes to kill, why would anyone complain about how long it takes to kill someone? Ultimately I wish the Time to Kill would be the same as COD4. They have been incrementally decreasing the TTK over the years. IMO, Black Ops 2 is about as low as it should go. AW does not have the same time to kill as Black Ops 2.

        • I hope you realise shotguns in this game can take two whole mags
          ( and that’s if you aim at the head, and hit every pellet ) to kill a guy, right? Honestly if AW nerfs the actually usable weapons it will be a dead, awful wannabe halo hybrid.

    • Kyle G

      I don’t know why you complain about SBMM, I mean, you nerds just reverse boost so it’s not like it completely effects you anyways.

      • I wasnt complaining about it, I was joking. I dont reverse boost, I just stick with whatever happens.

  • meow

    no random recoil pattern would be nice. 10 shot burst, no recoil at all, next 10 shot burst shooting into the damn sky. just adds more luck less skill in gun fights.

    • meow

      but this has been with CoD for ages so probably part of the engine of something

      • smb3master

        The Advanced Warfare version of the PDW is a horrible offender.
        Almost no recoil with one magazine, and the next it’s straight up.

  • Siftblade of Rivia

    I hope they buff the amount of points it costs to get a system hack.

    • They did that already lol. Too bad it didn’t work enough. I agree though. Buff it up more

    • All it needs is for it to not be so obtrusive. EMP streaks were not as annoying and were still good. Remove most of the static and permanently remove the skull, that’s all it needs.

      • MichiganerE

        The skull is still there? Since when?

        • gabe

          Its still there on ps3 and Xbox 360. They removed it from ps4 and XBOne

          • MichiganerE

            I know that.

          • HotHam

            Then why did you ask

          • MichiganerE

            Because he said it was still there, even though it isn’t on XB1 and PS4. Next time, he should clarify that he’s talking about Xbox 360 and PS3.

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        I don’t think it’s that intrusive tbh, I just don’t want to be spammed with it 15 times every game. It’s just annoying at that point.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        It’s an EMP for 700 points, the points need to be tweaked. As long as the points are high enough, then its intrusiveness is merited.

    • dco_dee

      they did
      ]

  • I’m hoping the AMR9, MK14, EPM3, and S12 gets proper buffs.

    • smb3master

      I would love to see the AMR9 get a buff, especially when your fighting against people with the BAL-27 or ASM1, the AMR9 seems next to useless.

      • zombiefreak935

        Have you used the epm3?

        • OldManLight

          the epm3 loses in a straight up gunfight to just about everything. the mk14 is ok but still has a way too slow TTK.
          Put it this way, if you’re regularly losing in a straight up gunfight to the ASM1 at medium range… your weapon probably should be buffed.

    • ccrows

      TBH I hope the AMR doesn’t get a buff.

      I already see enough people using that gun for tubing (especially with the PP Variant).

      The last thing we need is MORE people using that gun with DC… 🙁

      • OldManLight

        yeah but the pro pipe variant fires so slow that if you’re luck enough to get more than one burst off, you’re probably dead. This is also an SMG so it should rule at close quarters.

    • Manny18KB

      The MK14 definetley needs a buff the game is to fast paced for a 3 shot semi auto weapon

    • Ak74u

      I rarely see anyone use the S-12 its really bad as of now, but I have the whirlwhind variant and it’s pretty good

      • tarfeef101

        Its a ten shot kill in the closest range booth in the firing range (#4). I’m glad it’s that weak because rapid fire shotguns aren’t something I love, but I can see how it needs a buff

      • Plok

        I got extended mags with the 10 round variant and dat 15 round mag on Momentum. Lots of fun, I can’t wait until it gets a patch and I’m ahead of the game.

        • Ak74u

          Same here I also have that variant and I always use extended mags on the s-12 and yea I have a feeling it will be a good weapon after the patch

    • waveRaiin

      I hope All of the weapons get buffed. I think all automatic and burst guns should kill within 2-3 bullets. Unless you shoot them in the leg. 1 bullet to kill with snipers and shotguns. Real life.

      • christian

        not supposed to be cod ghosts lol

    • MCKOOKIE

      The Dlc gun sucks too

  • AMR9 should just be full auto. And then buff the damage a little bit on it.

    • ccrows

      but a lot of people use that gun for DC trolling as it is… 🙁

  • Primey_

    Shotguns are desperately needing a buff

  • TheDemonOfHate

    Tac-19 & S12. Tac-19 has so 2 hitmarkers into the head. It’s a freaking shotgun!!

    • Overachiever

      I’ve got 2 hit markers today in the one shot playlist.. fml

      • TheDemonOfHate

        Jesus! That’s when you the game is broke. Plus the health is on miniscule.

  • Bob

    Nerf bal again, asm, lasers. Longer kill time = more skill. Shorter kill time = no chance to turn on someone and less skill.

    • Carrisi

      Shorter kill time = ghost(worst cod ever)

      • toxic_bhavi0r

        ghost was for people with skill . gayfert

    • Nerf the BAL? EWWWWW.

      Are you kidding? That gun is pathetic.

  • MichiganerE

    Good to see. Maybe now I’ll want to use something other than the ASM1, HBR, AK12, KF5, IMR and Ameli.

    • Lachlan Fearn

      BAL-27?

      • MichiganerE

        Nope, I think it sucks.

  • Overachiever

    January 14th?

  • CrowReap .

    All i want is a shotgun buff

    • dco_dee

      no shotgun buff . there gay

  • Axel Noir

    The silencers are kinda fucked up. They mess with the recoil and that needs fixed.

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      That’s how they work in real life. It is logical.

  • jordanxbrookes

    This makes me happy because I hate to be forced to used the ASM1 or Bal just because those weapons are good, and the others are pretty bad. Now Sledgehammer just need to remove or heavily tone down SBMM in Pubs and this game will hopefully be playable.

    • Xx_COLSEY_xX

      I couldn’t agree anymore with you, I mainly use ARX-160 at the moment but whenever i have a bad game and getting slaughtered by ASM1 or Bal-27 at the same time, That’s when i basically have to use those guns just to survive on a positive k.d

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      The IMR is pretty good. Hope they leave that weapon alone.

      • Ak74u

        That’s my favorite weapon in the game I have both the thunder task and boars strike 😀

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          Thanks, Ak74u. You’re quite OP.

          • Ak74u

            Thank you I should of been in mw3 but no :((

          • But is he rapid fire ak74u?

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Nope, it’d be our worst nightmare.

    • wiz

      Honestly people saying that they are forced to run the Bal and ASM1 suck. Though they are the two best guns in the game, and everything else needs to be buffed, if you’re good you should have no problem doing well with the KF5, MP11, IMR, ARX, SN6.

  • Ak74u

    THE PREVIOUS WEAPONS BALANCING PATCH HASN’T CAME TO >> LAST GEN << YET!!! Neither has the system hack tuning, nor the double kills being longer in between. When are they going to patch it on the 360…???

    • Guest

      This is great news btw glad their going to buff some guns

  • Leon Perko-Marshall

    hope the sn6 gets buffed favourite gun

  • Xx_COLSEY_xX

    The assault rifles that needs buff are AK-12 (Upgrading damage) HBRa3 (Less recoil) MK14 (Upgrading damage AND Upgrading range) ARX-160 (Upgrading damage slightly) IMR (Faster fire rate slightly) That’s just my own opinion. Bal-27 just dominates the rest of assault rifles and those i’ve mentioned are slacking behind.

    • Cadence

      The AK-12 is balanced. It has no recoil and a decent RoF, so it’s supposed to be weak.

      • Xx_COLSEY_xX

        Ok you’ve made me think twice about AK-12 being buffed. Also i like your ideas of the weapons being buffed so they become like BO2 weapons

    • jooker-jr

      None of the ARs need a buff( a buff to the MK14 is welcomed tho ), the AK12 and the bal need a Nerf.

      • Xx_COLSEY_xX

        The AK-12 IMO isn’t that good at all, I’d say it’s average. But if the bal gets nerfed AGAIN then 75% Of the CoD AW community will be moaning “It’s the worst assault rifle now” But hey, i respect your opinion man

        • jooker-jr

          Clearly the bal is op, I mean look at the copmetitve matches of AW ( MLG, Game battles, etc…) Latterly the only used AR is the bal.

  • Hi

    If the mk14 and the amr9 doesn’t get a major buff I’ll be pissed off. I’ve got the pro pipe variant three times and both of the mk14 elite variants twice. None of these are any good as the guns are severely underpowered. I got out gunned across map with an asm1 while I was using the mk14 eagle eye

  • Cadence

    I hope the SN6 becomes the Peacekeeper, MK14–>SMR, ARX-160–>SWAT, EPM3–>FAL OSW, AMR9–>Chicom, MP11–>MP7, Tac 19–>Remington R870, S12–>M1216?, Atlas 45–> Tac 45, MP443–>B23R, PDW–>KAP40. Just pretty much reskin BO2 guns and the balance in this game will be fine. And give us a laser attachment actually worth equipping.

  • Lachlan Fearn

    I’m hoping the BAL-27 and ASM1 get majorly needed buffs? What does everyone else think?

  • SoulTaker

    Nerf the damn EM1 on PC.

  • JoZer805g

    Good, good, now they just need to remove SBMM and we will all be happy killing each other with good connection.

  • Dwain Inman

    The whole running around with a sniper and one shot one kill no matter where you hit is bull. sub-machine guns being able to kill you from across the other end of the map is crazy. the burst weapons are useless against people with automatic weapons. Need to beef up those to put them on equal footing. you should not be able to run around with a sniper rifle and be able to use it as a rifle in close quarters combat. They said they were going to make it to where you could not do that in this game, yet it is still going on.That one heavy weapon that has the two gatlin guns on your arms are useless…lol

    • Carrisi

      Have you ever played cod before? Most of your comments are present in all cods not just aw

      • Dwain Inman

        But they told everyone that they changed all that for aw…you would not be able to run around and use sniper rifles as a pdw…that was they told us at the unveiling when the game came out

        • Sense

          In AW if you get in a mid to long range fight with a sub against a AR 85 -90% chance you are gonna lose. Quick-scoping will always be in the game, but in this game particularly sniping will give you a SHIT load of hitmarkers.

  • jooker-jr
  • MrTexMex

    hmmm seems like if all the guns get buffs they might all be OP, but then again if everything’s over powered, is anything really over powered?

    • Carrisi

      But then we get instant deaths, the new Ghosts

    • Sense

      Buffing a gun doesn’t mean making it OP. Some guns given additional range , some will get damage, or some other trait. Hopefully they really take into account all the gun variants and don’t accidentally create a godlike variant gun.

  • SPAWNST4R

    none of this will make a blind bit of difference. buff/nerf whatever they want, the issues are not with the weapons. its a bad game made badly end of.

    • iKasai

      It isn’t a bad game tbh. You’re probably just bad at it so you are mad

      • SPAWNST4R

        typical juvenile response from an ill-informed idiot. You actually couldn’t be more wrong.

        • Sense

          Lmao SPAWNST4R must be a god online. The game is too simple for him and he has mastered it already. But even with all his skill he still deemed the game unplayable.

          • SPAWNST4R

            Yup, pretty much spot on kid . https://www.youtube.com/user/SPAWNST4R/videos

          • RunGun

            Uh.. that’s not Advanced Warfare and AW is what were talking about in this post. Also I can see why you don’t care for AW. AW is a fast game with a lot of close combat. You only had one kill inside 60 yards in your video and almost died at that. I can understand somebody not liking a game, I hated Ghost. But I didn’t expect the developers to buff SMG’s especially for me so I didn’t play it much. I’ll wait for your butt hurt response.

          • SPAWNST4R

            there’s a ton of vids on the channel, plenty of AW too, I just don’t bother to post them because its a boring game. just making the “you must suck at CoD” post look as ridiculous. Its the cry of a keyboard baddy who hasn’t got anything else to shout. Ive been playing CoD on all formats since CoD1 on PC and FPS for a long time before that, right back to SiN and Halflife with some LAN competition playing and trophies won. AW is junk. its matchmaking is junk , its gunplay is weak, the boost movements broke the tactical flow of the game and made it a spectator game not a players game. On top of this the weapon balance is dogshit and the spawns suck. Not to mention the ADS aimassist is too high and in 2015 its still on p2p and even if you actually do get a dedicated server (Cloud btw so not dedicated either…) the lag comp has been lifted off a pure lastgen p2p game and doesn’t work properly either. I get that some people with low expectations and low skill love the game, of course they do because its easy, unbalanced and caters to them. Ever notice how its the <1kd players posting on twitter and these pages about how their kd is up and the game rocks ?? and all high skilled youtubers are sick of AWs bullshit and are back to playing older cods or have moved on to other games. Even ATVI know the game is dying, hence they wont release sales figures (for the 1st time in Cod history btw) and have hidden the lobby player counts (Also for the 1st time in Cod history) so , no , not a butthurt response just an informed educated opinion.

          • RunGun

            I read all of that. Good response and you weren’t butt hurt. I’ll agree with you on the boost and flying. I hate it. And true, it’s laggy. Tried playing classic mode and there is literally nobody in the lobby. I started with WAW and have all the games since. I like the Treyarch games. I’m best at fast paced games as I grew up playing arcade games like Contra, Street Fighter(s), Samurai showdown,ect. I’m not a serious player so YES I do find AW fun and that’s what matters to me. I’m far past the mentality of being impressed by somebody’s video game skills so you and I aren’t going to relate to each other. That said AW is fun because I win most games. Ghosts wasn’t fun because I was insta sniped so often and lost games more often than not. Opinions vary but to me it takes more skill to run and gun then it does to plod away in a game. Ultimately I “think” that is why people love or hate a game. It’s more fun to win and no fun to lose. In this version of COD I get to win. You know the saying, one man’s poison…later.

          • SPAWNST4R

            the video channel post was to point out that the mentality people have where they think just because someone dislikes a cod they cant play it is utter nonsense. If you where to look at the video’s it would of highlighted the fact that I am a run & gunner and that in fact adapt is exactly what I do depending on the game the weapon I am using etc, It wasn’t some kind of look at my videos and be impressed post, not at all. I also think the whole “I win so its fun” argument is also flawed. Just because you win doesn’t make the game a good one. A well balanced well put together game makes a good one. AW has had more patches (they have even patched patches!!) in its 1st month than other cods have had in their 1st year and yet its still a long way from even remotely fixed. I fully understand the poison analogy but that still doesn’t make a bad CoD a good one.

          • RunGun

            I get you and agree that disliking a game doesn’t mean you’re bad at it and that’s not my argument. But at the end of the day does it matter if a anonymous person on the internet thinks you’re bad at a game? It still comes back to “fun” with many of us because it’s a GAME and nothing more. Another analogy (sorry). I don’t drink a chocolate shake because it’s good for me. I drink it because it’s delicious junk. COD is not a war sim. I wish the connectivity was better. I wish dumbasses wouldn’t play TDM in objective based modes and ruin them. I wish people wouldn’t cheat. But they do. Like I said. I play for fun. I have real life things I use to boost my confidence. Fact is unless your a school kid (like my son), nobody cares how good you are at COD. I did see your video and no offense, I’m not trolling… but that’s not run and gun in my book. I would consider that coddling a k/d ratio which can also be a “fun killer”. Opinions vary. nice talking to you. Have a great weekend!

          • SPAWNST4R

            the link to the channel automatically links the last video posted, which happened to be an m16 CoD4 video, which if you played CoD4 you would know you cant run and gun with an M16 sucessfully.. anyhow regardless how is that coddling a KD ? did I dashboard or quit no, never have never will. I adapt to the game mode and map in the game I am playing. thats the point. AW is a bad game, hence why ATVI wont release sales figure and player numbers, and why they come up with biggest franchise last year bullshit quotes that dont have any merit or proof. CoD is dying on its ass and AW is just another nail in that coffin.

          • runGun

            Ok. You don’t have fun with this game. It’s dying. Only my friends, me and the people we play against are playing it and we suck, don’t realize how bad it is and that’s why we do well in it. Lol. Got it. Makes sense. Thank God I don’t pay attention to all those asses on youtube telling everybody how to think.

            Simple and unplayable, your words numb nuts, not mine. I am pretty good online yes.

        • Richtoff

          I think he’s right. AW is high on the fun factor.. unless you’re losing a lot. If you weren’t losing you wouldn’t complain. You’re game is off and you’re mad. Unless you just like to whine.

  • Does that mean the Lynx and NA-45 won’t be trash?

    • ChoppaWallace

      NA-45 will still be trash because it was a bad idea for a gun

      • Allright fine, you got that.

  • Stefan Lang

    They should have made variant weapons that were full auto, 3 burst, or semi auto. I always wanted a single SAC 3 variant that gives you one instead of two.

  • jahladagaming

    If they are all getting buffs and no nerfs then we need more health IMHO. Don’t make it like instant death Ghosts.

    • Carrisi

      I was starting to enjoy the game but once instant deaths become live then bye bye AW

  • Kyle G

    Can’t wait, tired of all the ASM1 and BAL-27 sweaty wannabe MLG pros.

    • GinsuVictim

      Or they were using those guns because, ya know, they hate losing gunfights.

      • John smith

        Or they were using them because they are the most overpowered bullshit weapons in the game and using them takes no skill????

        • GinsuVictim

          You’re right, it takes skill to fight both the connection and against someone using a better gun than you. If you purposely going into battle with a piece of junk, your ability doesn’t matter when your skill at weapon selection comes into question. You might as well take an airsoft gun into real combat.

  • chris

    They need to buff the servers, especially PC.

  • Slingshot // Twitch/iiillilili

    Buff the damn supply drops… they suck ass.lol

  • tarfeef101

    While the one shot range is very low on shotguns, and that needs a buff, the range at which they get hitmarkers is way too high. I hope they don’t forget that in this buff

  • Demonic Gamer

    You know what needs fixing………….Supply drops I’m a regular play but get supply drops with atlas 45 elite or just some cra* knee pads.

    • HotHam

      You must not understand what completely random means.

    • Keshav Bhat

      It’s is *completely* random. There’s no way to tell what each person gets. It’s all about what happens.

      • It’s 100% categorically not “completely random”.

        Explain to me why inside two Prestiges I got *every* single weapon variant of the EPM3?

        • Keshav Bhat

          You can’t explain it. It’s random.

          • But neither can you. There’s been no official word regarding any of the calculations used to determine what you get out of supply drops.

            Any theory’s posted online by the big YouTubers regarding one every 4-5 games or approx 45 minutes is also incorrect because I and other members of my clan have had two from two games without rapid supply time.. Which is also a grey area.

            They’re not “random”. But the calculations that determine their timing is unknown.

  • Fariko Lunatik

    Every weapon needs a buff apart from the BAL and ASM1 simple as that, play league and that’s all you see. I would love to use other weapons but atm it’s pointless unless your playing pubs

  • Stefan Lang

    The epm3 shouldnt have even been in the game. Neither should have the MK14. Both are shit semi auto weapons. The FAL in bo2 will forever remain superior.

  • RebornAngel666

    How can anybody here forget about the ASM1???? NERF THAT SHIT!!

    • Frankenstien

      Just use it then. as a smg user since the MP40 way back in WAW I’ve had to put up with some crappy subs over the years. I had to really suck it up for the Ghost’s run. Now I’ve got a good SMG and all you guys I’m murdering are crying about it. Some days you’re the dog and some days you’re the hydrant. Guess it’s time for shotgunners and snipers to get pissed on now. Man up and take your medicine.

      • RebornAngel666

        That’s just stupid what you just said. . Bye

        • Frankenstien

          You mad? Nothing personal but why should the developers nerf a gun because it destroys you? AW is a fast twitch game like the BO series. Apparently you don’t do so well when things are moving fast. Don’t fret, you’ll probably find a good corner to camp in with the next COD game. Now if you don’t understand what I just said then maybe you shouldn’t be calling anybody stupid.

          • RebornAngel666

            Hahaha. So I guess it’s OK to use a weapon that kills in 4-6 shots at very long range? It’s not even an SMG anymore then. I guess scrubs like you actually LIKE to use the gun, because, well, it kills too fucking fast as opposed to other weapons. Get a grip, everyone knows it’s OP, as of right now, look how many people ACTUALLY started using it after the buff. Don’t tell me I’m wrong, please. It’s so difficult for people to use a gun that’s not OP, and run around getting easy kills. They’re garbage at the game and use it at their own benefit. Can’t wait til it’s all balanced out 🙂 goodbye ASM1 scrubs

    • GinsuVictim

      No nerfs needed, just buffs. Once the other guns are better, the ASM1 won’t be anything special.

    • Keshav Bhat

      There’s no need to nerf the ASM1; they’re gonna buff other weapons to reach a similar level to ASM1. So all will be balanced.

      • Xecho

        oh so just like it was in MW2? AWESOME

      • RebornAngel666

        Hope so

  • nokki00 .

    Buff the MK14 and take the iron sight off. Why would they keep the iron sight on if you use a attachment sight. Geesh….

  • beamer

    What about buffing the Explosive Drone which is about as dangerous as a wet fart

    • Ak74u

      Haha the way you described it! Acurate

    • Aymen Skiken

      is there even an explosive drone ?… oh nvm…

  • smayo

    If they released a beta all this buffing and nerving and patching/fixing wasn’t needed on this scale, but why should they ? We do it for them in the first 2 months after release….

  • sk00terDA5h00ter

    I agree that some weapons do need buffed. However, I’m hoping all of these buffs don’t screw with the TTK in this game. I like the way it’s set up. If I’m getting shot at, some times I have the chance to counter with a swift dash and turn around, and end up getting the kill. In my eyes the following need a buff:

    MK14

    EPM3 – this thing is just horrible

    ARM9 – could use a tiny buff although it is a low damage weapon, and I used it a few times and I did decent so it may not need a buff however it could use one to keep up with all the other buffs.

    HBR- I think they screwed this up when they nerfed it because statistically it should beat the AK. I use the Average Joe and it has more damage than AK, faster fire rate than the AK but It’s harder to kill with than the AK. Seems like the fire rate or something isn’t right with this gun. Anyone else have similar problems?

    S12 – this needs some help. I have the whirlwind and had a challenge for 25 kills for supply drop and it took forever. I’m not the best shotgun user as it is but, it seemed like it took multiple shots to kill. I found myself constantly reloading and running out of Ammo. I think they should also be careful buffing shottys. Shotguns are a skill based gun in my eyes and a noob shouldn’t be able to destroy with them in close quarters maps like they did with the bulldog in Ghosts. A buff could piss everyone off more than help them.

    All of the other guns in my eyes are usable. They just take skill to use. Sometimes you need to fall back and play skillfully and slow. Everyone moves so fast in AW and if you’re a cautious player with limited exo movement it helps. This is what I do. I don’t camp at all I’m moving but I don’t exo move all the time and it makes many guns better because I’m not running right into a gun fight. I keep some distance and it helps. This game should take skill not a powerful gun and a dumbass.

  • Dwain Inman

    they need to fix the heatsink for the laser rifles… they STILL overheat too fast.. you overheat before the other persons mag is empty…it should a tleast last a full mag

  • OldManLight

    Good news indeed! Practically every secondary needs a buff. there’s currently no reason to carry any of them save for the RW1 at times. If they buff my tac19 i’ll be like…

  • Kurt Tange Tangeman

    The Lynx w/silencer needs to be one shot kill to neck and head.

  • CookieChairman

    Aside from weapons, Exo Stim needs a buff: either a shorter activation time or more charge by default.

  • Hhh

    Asm1 NEEDS to get patched . Its soo reliable in every game mode

  • Tommy10guns

    Sledgehammer did amazing with this game the only ploblem ive got with it is weapon variants make the game an uneven playing field, they made it so they weapon skins not variants so the stats on guns dont change it just makes them look cool

    • Tommy10guns

      They should of made it so they are weapon skins not variants*

  • toxicz_bhavi0r

    they need to re-buff bal 27 no else other gun all other guns are fine .

  • Alex Dunn

    the ak12 needs to get its fire rate the r.i.p is trash now

    • Alex Dunn

      and the tac19 man that’s way too over powered now

  • pancho

    I hope the mp11 get a buff

  • ashneo

    they need to dumn down and add recoil to the ak hbr bal27 asm1 and just add recoil to the mp11 and should be good. this game takes no skill just every gun kills in a pull of a trigger. no aiming are controlled burst needed they made this game for noobs!!
