Michael Condrey has tweeted out stating that they’re planning on buffing certain weapons in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare in the future. These updates are not scheduled to launch soon; Condrey says “weeks out” till we should expect these changes.

They’re planning to buff the PDW, MP443, Atlas 45,Crossbow, MP11, Single Sac3, and MORs.


Stay tuned for the latest on Advanced Warfare.

    Wouldn’t say MP11 or MORS need a buff, but it’ll be interesting to see what they do.

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Interesting is an understatement the game is screwed like Santa on a rainy day ??

  • Thatlazykid

    Its so hard for me to remember which gun is which in this game compared to other cods where I remembered the guns with heart ?

    • fires

      pretty much the pistols, crossbow, uzi/pm63-esque gun of AW, single vector, and the bolt actions; if you were confused

  • ScOott

    Don’t buff snipers! People send death threats ?

    • Drasadex

      Imma nerf the snipers when BO3 comes out.

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      SHG is dumb like an ape. See —> ?

    • Mr.good News

      Snipers aren’t as bad as they were in Ghosts. That said. I get it. Sniper=one shot kill. It’s the quick scoping that I don’t like. Final kill replays were the scope sight is blacked out with no target in there?

      • Andrey Martim

        Sniping in Ghosts was Impossible, worst even than pre-patch Black Ops 1 Sniping. I only snipe with the Atlas 20mm, and it is bad… But not Ghosts bad.

        • Jonathan Gray

          Really? I played Ghosts for as long as I did because the sniping felt great!

        • No it was easy.

          • N FORCE 5

            It was really easy to me

        • Bmeowmix

          Sniping in Ghosts wasn’t that hard since a hit nearly anywhere in the body was a one-shot, but you just had to play it quicker to counter the enemies stupidly low TTKs

        • kenji jojima

          Well, I’m sorry to inform you friend, but you must not be good at cod in general if you thought sniping in ghosts was “impossible”. Actually, ghosts sniping was super easy. Sniping will always be easy if you have the ability to set your sensitivity to 15-20. Sniping only becomes easy in those high sensitivity levels. That is what would control a lot of the quick scoping nonsense. If sniping had a default sensitivity, or you couldn’t use a sniper rifle with sensitivity over 5 or 6. Then you’d see some pretty fair sniping. Sniping has and always has been comical, laughable.. a joke, if you will. Again, catering to an age group that shouldn’t even be playing the game in the first place. Wow, that brings up a whole other topic. Call of Duty: A franchise built for 10 year old kids, sold to young adults (17 and up). It’s all done by design, no doubt.

          • Andrey Martim

            I am a CoD Veteran… Since CoD3 (Online since 4), and I’m a great longshooter, was 25# Top Accuracy in Brazil during MW3 time. I always used snipers (M21 in CoD4, Mosin Nagant and M1 Garand in WaW, WA2000 in MW2, PSG1 in Black Ops, RSASS in MW3, Ballista and SVU in Black Ops 2 and now the Atlas 20mm in AW). Only in Ghosts I passed the snipers on. It wasn’t the controls, it was the weaponry (No light, hi-cap, semiauto sniper in Ghosts, the Marksman Rifles aren’t good for sniping), the only sniper I used, and sometimes only, was the Remington 700 (Dsesignated USR I believe) and it was awful, and bad sniping maps, at least in my conception. And yes, you can snipe in a less than 5 sensitivity, because I play with the default one.

      • hazmat

        Killcams are not exactly what happened in the game its a game recreation, with the slowing down and stuff, it creates an issue. it takes a certain amount of time to make the scope not black, and the slow mo messes with that, most commonly its actually a quick drag scope, that the drag is not shown till late after the black is lifted

  • Drasadex

    So pistols won’t be complete shit now?

    Cool lol

    • ScOott

      I have never seen anyone using a pistol in a.w .. Every single one needs a buff ..

      • Drasadex

        I try to occasionally, but yeah, they’re terrible lmao

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Your sentence structure needs a buff, here’s a free cow ?

        • ScOott

          Suck my .. Big toe!

          • I’ve never heard that before, but it works! 😛

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            ??

      • RdJokr

        When you’re in a game full of BALs and ASMs, pistols don’t stand a chance.
        Atlas 45 is more or less ok. M1 Irons is good (even though it’s a Special primary). The other 3? Ugh, they really need some buff.

    • They are designed to be less formidable. After all, they are secondary weapons and are only meant as backups.

      • Drasadex

        I get that.

        I’m not saying that they should be more powerful than an AR or anything, but a few less bullets from the Atlas 45 to kill someone would be nice.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        But in black ops 2 people excused the Op pistols because they cost a point.

        • Drasadex

          oh yeah, I forgot about that B23R and the KAP40 lol

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            B23KAP40R in BO3 confirmed

    • Andrey Martim

      Got royalty camo for pistols… Just need to know the limits of the class. Also the MP443 and the RW1 are great, PDW is strange but good for quickdraw… Atlas is bad… But can be a little better with some training.

  • I personally think the MK14’s close range 2 shot kill should have been brought back.

    • Bmeowmix

      Oh please no. I don’t want another BO2 FAL

      • D3ADWANTED 25

        What the hell do you mean? You don’t see very often FAL being used and most people prefer the SMR. I hope they do make the MK14 2-3 shots and plus have you even used it?

        • Bmeowmix

          Oh God no. The FAL was way more common than the SMR. Sure the SMR had range, but the RoF on the FAL was far superior. And yes, I have used the MK14, it is one of my favorite weapons (tied with the Lynx, EPM3, and AE4)

          • D3ADWANTED 25

            Your referring to the MW3 right and if your referring to the AW then your truly gullible

          • Bmeowmix

            …what?

          • D3ADWANTED 25

            I meant that you meant your referring to the MK14 from MW3 not the one from AW right?

          • Bmeowmix

            still not exactly sure what you’re saying. I hated the MW3 MK14 if that’s what you mean

          • D3ADWANTED 25

            You sir are narrow minded and gullible

          • Bmeowmix

            Umm how so?

          • D3ADWANTED 25

            Do you think your trigger finger is capable of reaching the maximum RPM of a semi-automatic three shot kill weapon before oversampling it while face to face with a smg or an assault rifle. Sure you can kill him if your accurate and if he has terrible aim or by flanking around him with a suppresor but if you compare it to 2 shot kill its more efficient and can compete with everything else

          • Bmeowmix

            But at close range an MK14 shouldn’t be effieient. It’s a mini-sniper almost, and at a medium-long range it kills just fine. If it were an easy two shot in close range then it wouldn’t play like a DMR should and if you made it a two shot beyond that it would be demolish everything like the FAL OSW did. So in medium-long ranges, yes I can beat an SMG or AR in a gun fight, like I’m supposed to

          • D3ADWANTED 25

            But in Advance Warfares case you could just easily dodge and escape it

            Heres a link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mDDvWNbVY2k

            It also isn’t just influence but also experience

          • Bmeowmix

            This was made before the MK14 buffs though, plus it looks like he is trying to use it like an AR/SMG, which it isn’t. It currently is a 3-4 shot and is tied for 2nd highest range with the AE4 (beat out by the HBR for some reason though) which is pretty respectable for longer ranges. It also will kill in only two shots at any range if there is only one headshot. The recoil has also been reduced since then making it a laser, regardless of how fast you fire. The only guns that can compete would be an HBR with foregrip and the EPM3, which can devistate at any range really.

      • The problem with the FAL from BO2 was that it was a mostly 2 shot kill weapon that can be fully automatic.

        The MK14 in AW was mostly a 3-4 shot kill, which isn’t effective. I thought the MK14’s two shot kill effectiveness at close range was the weapon’s saving grace, but that was removed not so long ago and I think it was a bad idea.

        • Bmeowmix

          Isn’t it a two-shot from the chest up at close range?

          • The MK14 used to be a two-shot kill from the chest up at close range. Not anymore since the update.

          • Bmeowmix

            Wow, who at SH thought “we need to Nerf the MK14”?

  • SoulTaker

    Haven’t used the MP11 in ages used to be a favorite gun of mine don’t know what happened.

    • RdJokr

      I have both Elite MP11s, and I have barely ever touched them LOL. Maybe it’s because I’m having too much fun playing with the Insanity.

      • SoulTaker

        Lucky…the only elite I got so far that I like is the Steel Bite, and the Speakeasy ! :l I got to master prestige one finally and got the Steed so that’s good as well.

        • RdJokr

          I have neither of those actually. Have always wanted to try out Steel Bite and Speakeasy, just to see what the hype is about.

          • SoulTaker

            Speakeasy is all looks to be completely honest since I’m a Thompson or PPSH was my favorite gun from WAW. Steel Bite is amazing with a red dot on maps like Detroit, Recovery and Sideshow . 😛

      • cbns007

        Sure, rub in having an Insanity. 🙁

  • Andrey Martim

    The MP11 needs a buff bad, I used the Goliath variant when getting the Diamond Camo and the gun is still horrible, worst SMG by far. The MORS is not bad, but not at all a great rifle, I’m playing with it equipped with Iron Sights, and the hitmarkers are killing it.

    • Guest

      The MP11 Goliath is a beast, if you think its the worst smg than you’re just shit with that gun.

      • Andrey Martim

        Maybe… Is the SMG I took most time to get Diamond Camo, even with +3 damage it is still weak, burn fast through ammo, horrible Iron Sights… Just restarted playing with the KF5 (Marxman Variant) and it is like swapping a skate for a Ferrari.

        • Aceshigh87

          Goliath with Rapid Fire, Extended Mags and either grip or Advanced Rifling (so don’t recall which I used, both work depending on the player) is an absolute Monster. Second SMG I finished after the ASM1. The iron sights are actually pretty good for me which helps.

          It’s definitely not better than the ASM1 but I would use my Goliath over either elite AMR9 so have any day.

    • Eddie

      I’m pretty sure the akimbo SAC3s are the worst

      • Andrey Martim

        The SAC3’s are great, last SMG I got Diamond, with Ex. Mags and Laser it is a monster in close range.

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    OMG why buff the MORS?! ? Mankey doesn’t approve

  • joey

    NOW they buff the crossbow?! instead, they could simply rename the variants so they more accurately represent the “weapon’s” abilities. for instance: rename the conqueror the elite “mouse fart”, or the “limp [BLEEEP]”.

  • Tsaki

    I would really like to see the projectile speed of the crossbow to be faster. It was a fun weapon to use in BO2 occasionally

  • Pharoah

    increase the ttk in the game its insanely short!

  • JoZer805g

    We need a huge BAL-27 and ASM1 nerf and on side of that please remove SBMM 😀

  • Brad

    It’s all meaningless unless they remove SBMM. They seem to be putting in so much time into their game but not enough to remove SBMM.

    • Slothigans

      Can’t believe people are still on about this lmao.

      • Choppabro2psn

        I mean as long as advanced warfare is shitty and still exists, it’s worth a try lol

        • Slothigans

          I honestly don’t know how people think it’s bad. Yes there’s flaws but what cod doesn’t have them. I never lag, I play ranked, and I have fun with friends.

          • Choppabro2psn

            To each his own

    • Drasadex

      I don’t think it’s getting removed.

      • RdJokr

        TBH, I don’t even notice it when playing now. Even on a platform with low population (goddamn SHG and their damn PC support), I still can find match with a lot of people (in fact, many of them are serious clan tryhards type, having high ass K/D every match).

        The only thing that seems to be getting in the way of matchmaking is the DLC. So if SHG doesn’t implement a DLC filter option, so that DLC players can be matched to base players in case no good DLC matches come up, we’re all fucked, period.

        • WhiskeyDick

          This! I knew finding matches seemed to be shit lately, going to play domination and it shows “2 matches available” sucks… I hope they do fix this problem ASAP

  • jordanxbrookes

    “Buffs” as in slight increased range and headshot multiplier rather than increasing damage or fire rate.

    • Juses

        Ok, only because it’s you Juses 🙂

    • imBATMAN

      nu buffs as in 200% dumage and 0 rcuil

  • BUFFING the MORS? SG is on crack. Thats like buffing the ASM1 or BAL….

    • Not really, the MORS is like the hardest to use bolt action sniper ever in Call of Duty. I personally don’t think it’ll hurt giving it a little bit more juice.

      • Bmeowmix

        It is actually probably the easiest, aside from MAYBE the DSR50 in BO2

        • Well, it’s even harder to use with people flying everywhere.

          • Bmeowmix

            Yeah, but it is still incredibly easy to use. You could make that same argument for any gun in the game, but let’s face it, we’re all used to it by now. If anything they should reduce the OHK area to the chest up (along with the Atlas 40)

          • RebornAngel666

            Actually it is

    • RdJokr

      At least they didn’t buff the NA-45. It’s like noob tube for snipers now.

    • When they say “buff”, they don’t necessarily mean a buff in damage. It could be a decrease in idle sway or perhaps something else.

      • It doesn’t need a buff of any kind, it’s the most used sniper, and it 1 shot kills 80% of the time. And everyone runs it in ranked play with overkill (Second gun being BAL or ASM1). It’s in the category of the BAL and ASM1

  • lunator100hd .

    They should buff every smg (maybe asm1 too) cause they suck against almost every as rifle

  • imBATMAN

    YUS TEH MORS BUFF!!!
    NOW TUH SNEPER HUV MUSCLES!

  • Ak74u

    I’d rather them buff the SN6 than the mp11. The mp11 isn’t a bad weapon but the sn6 has the lowest damage

  • Ak74u

    Why aren’t my wins on clan wars counting? On player contributions it doesn’t show me any of the wins I’ve gotten and I’ve won matches for the game modes available. Also at times my Xbox is saying that the aw servers are not available and doesn’t let me play multiplayer idk if this is causing my games not to count but that’s what it seems like. I’m in California U.S playing on 360

  • RdJokr

    No MK14 buff? Sledgehammer pls.

  • D3ADWANTED 25

    If they buff the MP11 similar to the MP7 in BO2 that would be really great and what about the SN6 really been eager to use it but now is on the edge of being mentioned obsolete

  • Game sucks, need to vent

    It’s not like these buffs are gonna matter. The game will still be controlled by the BAL and Asm1 and all the people who think they are good when they use it. If they really want to make a good CoD they would actually listen to the majority (regular players) and not the minority (esports and pro).

    • Bmeowmix

      Yeah, you’d think that it would be easier to Nerf the two biggest problem guns rather than buff every single other one, but hey, I’m not a game developer

  • Mateo

    The next game is gonna be out and these guys are still gonna be nerfing and buffing stuff in this game. smh. make the game right, you had 3 years, and you still changing the game 7 months later, i never get to know any of these guns, they completely different every couple of weeks, smh.

  • Bmeowmix

    As if the MORS wasn’t already too easy to use… If anything I’d think it would deserve a nerf, but a buff? And it’s even funnier seeing that the MORS is probably the most popular sniper in the game already.

    I thought they said sniping was going to truly take skill in AW, but the MORS is already a one-shot to most of the body, which (with exo-movements taken into account) isn’t hard.

    • I just think that the sprint out time could be decreased. Maybe swap times could be beneficial.

      • Bmeowmix

        It’s a sniper. It isn’t meant to be a run-and-gun fast-swap weapon. If they did this it would just be even more quickscoping

  • Freeze

    Let us make every gun better. How about make them all worse.

  • Anthony

    Man, they should totally buff the ASM1 and Bal-27 lol

  • jooker-jr

    The game doesn’t need any buff ( except the crossbow), it only needs nerfs.

  • Cadence

    Once again SHG shows how out of touch they are wirh the community in terms of balancing. The MORS is widely considered to be the best sniper in the game, yet it’s getting buffed. Meanwhile the NA-45 is still a joke of a weapon. I’ve literally never seen anyone go positive with it.
    The MP11 buff is appreciated, but I think the AMR9 still needs one more (at least fix the Dynamo). It’s by far the least popular SMG, and for good reason; it simply isn’t competitive.
    And for the love of gosh, BUFF THE MK14! Pretty much everyone agrees it’s underpowered. Why they partially nerfed it in the last patch is beyond me. Make it a 2 shot kill out to mid range, and a 3 beyond that (unless you get a head shot). Come on, SHG.

  • Ken Ward

    Buff, nerf, buff, nerf, buff, nerf …stop it already. Game sucks dick anyway.
