    Why couldn’t they add hardcore fracture

    • Cos no one wants to hardcore fracture their butthole.

      • Ivan

        Eat a dick next to ur mum

        • Why would I eat a dick next to my mum when I can eat your dads dick next to you’re mum?

          • BradyAlucard

            Because his mum is lactose intolerant.

          • You misspelled lack toast and tall or rent

    • Because everyone will bait the cores since you kill people in 1-2 shots.

      • Sentinel

        Those player who camp near the cores would of benefit from this so much, it is a pain on the butt when they do so on core.

      • Ivan

        Then why have kill confirmed if it’s worse? Fracture u need to take a files to the location

        • Sentinel

          You only drop and collect just one tag at a time. You get killed by a camper with 8+ cores near the drop point…now that’s a bitch.

        • In Hardcore KC, the moment you grab the tag, you’ve already scored. This happens very quickly. Also, tags are rarely spread around so often.

          In Fracture, almost nobody will be able to score since they’re required to collect and deposit. Since people will end up baiting due to the risk, they’ll either be camping at the Fracture site or everywhere else since the cores are everywhere.

          • Ivan

            I still don’t understand why people that don’t like it, play it or worse, have an opinion! It’s not for everyone.. U guys have ur own core fracture, the rest of us hardcore players want our own hc fracture mode! It’s that simple

      • jt3z

        Everyone camps in Hardcore. HC is unplayable in COD

    • Eric H

      If you’re playing hardcore on Call of Duty, you’re not playing Call of Duty.

  • Nice to see they did something about the Kuda, but they reduced recoil stability even more on the VMP? Are they trying to make another Vesper? The VMP can be difficult to fire in a straight line sometimes. Perhaps it’s just my shot being shaky in GBs. Anyone else feel like you lose control of your VMP sometimes? Recoil can become spontaneous.

    • I think it’s a lazer gun in the right hands. I’m sick of it. I’m begging them to reduce the mag count to 30 so it stops being spray and pray. It would balance it.

      • I almost have a 2KD with then gun. It’s definitely my best weapon, but I feel if you reduce the ammo capacity then you make its recoil more stabilized. But like I said, just sometimes I feel like I lose control of the gun.

    • Devin Johnson

      “stability” is the key word here! means it is easier to stabalize the gun !!

      • They reduced it. Meaning it’s harder to stabilize.

        • Devin Johnson

          Im bad at words ._.

        • BradyAlucard

          So it’s practically the same? Knowing Vahn, it’ll probably be 0.0000123%.

    • Sentinel

      I remember joining a lobby where all the players where using the VMP….literally. But yeah, I think the recoil on the VMP can be spontaneous ’cause I often find myself burst firing the gun.

    • Michael Romo

      The VMP was definitely overpowered, but it wasn’t the recoil that made it that way. They need to reduce its range

      • BradyAlucard

        And maybe its fire rate. I don’t see why it’s so overpowered objectively speaking, but I know for a fact that it is subjectively, I just think it kills too fast.

    • Eric H

      Yeah I know, all the SMGs already sucked, now they just suck even more.

      • What? VMP and Kuda are gods. Hell I think the Razorback is still good. The Vesper is a god now again. So idk what you mean about subs sucking even more.

  • Snipers, aim assist, pls

    • No, Treyarch learned their lesson in Black Ops 2.

    • Paperdave

      Yes we really need this

    • Aim assist can be applied when you scope in for 0.2-0.5 seconds. The faster you’re moving, the longer AA will kick in. That way, actual sniping is benefited while quickscoping is nerfed.

      • BradyAlucard

        The best thing to ever happen to Call of Duty since Black Ops 1. Thank. You. Vonderhaar!!

    • Gamerazor247

      I don’t know about you, but the lack of assist on Sniper Rifles actually made them viable for me.

      • djml9

        Im finw without aim assist. I just need them to lower sensetivity while ADS again. I dont play with high sensetivity for a reason, so being forced to use a high sensetivity on snipers makes them damn near unusable until i the variable sight.

  • Ah Gorod Krovi patches. Still only about two weeks before it releases on the Xbox One. I’m ready to play it

    • It’s a great map. Better than SoE, Eis and Zets combined.

      • Agreed. Reminds me the most of the BO1 maps.

      • Siftblade

        I love Der Eisendrache but I agree with this. Just shows how good Gorod Krovi is.

        • I recently watched some reviews on Gorod Krovi, a lot of people saying it play s similar to classic zombies and everything flows well in the map. That makes me excited to play the map if that’s the case. Der Eisendrache is probably my favorite DLC map on BO3, but it’s looking like Gorod might top it, i just gotta play it

    • Nexy_Gamer

      It’s great. I haven’t got the PPSH yet, but I have got the mk3

  • TheSkrillexKill

    “Mercenary playlist has been retired”

    I knew this was going to happen, God dammit.

    • Michael Romo

      No one played it

    • TheHorror

      I never understood why it was so underpopulated, you’d think most solo players would want to play against other solo players but apparently not. Damn shame.

  • JeronimoPW

    RIP Vesper, AGAIN!!!! W T H

    • Michael Romo

      No, you don’t get it. They improved the recoil, they didn’t worsen it. Now it should have less recoil, making it a good weapon to use now!

  • Batman

    JUST PLEASE:
    -ADD THE PPSH-41 ON THE GIANT
    -BUFF THE WUNDERWAFFLE
    -ADD THE HG-40/MX GARAND ON DER EISENDRACHE
    -REMOVE PERKS THAT HAVE MACHINES IN THE MAP ALREADY FROM THE WUNDERFIZZ
    -ADD THE BOTTLEGGER IN MORE MAPS

    That’s all I need for BO3 zombies

    • Sentinel

      Not a site to suggest such things but good luck!

      • Sentinel

        Here we go…

      • Siftblade

        Why not? This is the most popular COD site and he’s listing things he wants to see in the next patch, on an article about this current patch. This is as close to relevant as you can get without actually discussing the changes made in this patch.

        • Siftblade, why are you so smart? I heard if you plug a USB into your bellybutton it gives you all the knowledge of the internet. Did you do that?

          • Ruski Drinks Brewski

            He’s russian what else did you expect

    • I just want DLC4 to have more old weapons in the map. I’m surprised Treyarch hasn’t been on nostalgia happy with the guns in zombies like they were in Black Ops 2 Zombies. Thompson, MP40, STG44, Galil, AK74u etc

      • BradyAlucard

        It’s a start.

        • If the Treyarch puts the PPSH41 back in the next map as well along with some other old weapons like STG44, Thompson, Galil, actually have the MG42 in the box a long with the M1911 being the starting pistol again in the next map, I’ll consider DLC4 a success in terms of weapons. And they should go all out on it too. However, they probably wont put all those weapons in it

          • BradyAlucard

            That would be nice, I just don’t know if it’s realistic. At least there’s something to look forward to (and be disappointed about). I hope that DLC4 is awesome.

          • What do you by realistic? I mean we are using 2075 futuristic weapons with zombie maps that take place in the 1940s lol. Treyarch need to go balls to the wall with DLC4 and changing the weapons would do that too. I think or at least hope they go all out on that map even though they’re already finished with it

          • Michael Romo

            Really? We’re talking about time and space travel and you wanna complain about the “futuristic weapons”. Plus it would be stupid to have all of those weapons in the map when they have a whole system for customizing weapons already in the game

          • I think sXeGreatness is a women cos they always love complaining about things, even when they’re irrelevant.

          • Michael Romo

            I don’t even think this person is a true zombies fan. Yes, it would be nice to have older weapons in the next map, but too many would ruin it

          • A couple new guns would be perfect, like 4-6 but anything more would feel overkill.

          • Michael Romo

            Like Gorod Krovi. It introduced the FFAR, NX Shadowclaws, L4 Siege, PPSH, and kept the HG-40. That was perfect

          • Did you not play Origins? MP40, STG44, Staffs, ScarH, KSG, Scorpion, Masuer, Ballista, etc. There were like 8 different new weapons in that map. Plus since when was more=overkill? More content, the better. More variety. Not necessarily overkill

          • “I don’t agree wif dis peruson n i touk his comt de wronh wey, he isbt tru fan”

            You

          • Michael Romo

            Dude, any true fan of zombies would agree that too many “nostalgic” weapons in a single map would ruin it. I’m just saying that what you are suggesting is a bad idea for the game mode

          • Again your logic “u dun agree wif meh dere4 u aren’t tru zambes fan”

          • Michael’s right you goof

          • I know I’m right

          • Then you know something false.

          • I wasn’t even complaining you goof. Learn how to read my comments before being a retard

          • My comment wasn’t even me complaining you stupid fuck. Jesus fucking Christ

          • FazalGaming

            KYS

      • Ak74u

        Galil and ak74u and I’ll be a happy boy

        • No five-seven?

          jk no one wants that piece of crap

      • Nexy_Gamer

        I want the Sten (bootlegger) back.

    • ShadowMaster862

      Okay, it would be OP if they made that Wundurfizz change. That would leave only 3 perks in the machine.

      It’s SUPPOSED to be rare to get those perks you want specifically. You could get Jugg or Speed for cheaper. And if they took this out, it wouldn’t allow the chance for a 4th Quick Revive without a Gobblegum.

      Now a buff to chances for specific perks? i could see THAT happen, but not what you said.

      • Michael Romo

        The whole Wunderfizz idea is just stupid. Idc if the maps are overflowing with perk machines, I just want to be able to buy whatever perks I need and want without having to spend $15000+

        • ShadowMaster862

          That’s kinda like saying the idea of the box is stupid and to be able to purchase a Dingo of the wall or something. If this happened, it’d be easier then it is now.

          • FoxyTheDankPirate

            Welp…we saw On DE the Brm on the wall maybe in dlc 4 its gonna be Dingo…nah probably not since its a good weapon (: besides its trollarch would love to see some actual World at war Guns maybe even the double barrel shotgun haha

        • Stop complaining any true zombies fan would see that DER WUNDERFIZZ IS A GR8 IDEA

        • Nexy_Gamer

          It’s the fucking point. Except for mule kick. Mule kick can fuck off.

    • Hasoon

      Shut the fuck up because u ain’t getting shit and u should get a life u fucking fat loser

      • lol fuck off retard

        • FazalGaming

          You fuck off you fake.

          • Lol shut up David jetta

          • FazalGaming

            That’s not even my real name lol

      • Nexy_Gamer

        Fuck off stupid guest account.

    • RdJokr

      Buff the Wunderwaffe? The fuck have you been? Wunderwaffe is ridiculously OP now.

  • Sentinel

    Finally the HG-40 & FFAR are tweaked! The recoil on the FFAR reminded me of the good days in BO1. Recoil was a thing back then “cause now with all this augmented shit, a noob can use almost any gun and rank up some kills without barely trying.

    • BradyAlucard

      The FFAR really didn’t need a buff at all, but the HG-40 needed it badly.

      • Sentinel

        Yeah, not a buff but to stabilize initial fire recoil for sure & agree on the HG-40. I play a lot more hardcore so it is decent but not on core matches.

  • Michael Romo

    Ok, you raised the recoil on the VMP, but did you fix it’s range? Nope. Didn’t think so

    • BradyAlucard

      At least they did something right with the Kuda. They can always nerf the VMP in the next patch, I’m not worried about it. I’m just happy that Vahn finally came to his senses.

      • Gamerazor247

        Nerf the VMP? Lol, nah, they won’t even try.

        • BradyAlucard

          Gotta appease the competitive idiots somehow, amirite? Ugh.

          • Eric H

            Competitive idiots? You do realize that competitive Call of Duty has pushed Call of Duty to be more balanced, right?

          • BradyAlucard

            I haven’t laughed this hard in a while.

          • Ew balanced. Nah, I want MW2 where everything is overpowered. That was fun balance is boring

          • BradyAlucard

            Hit the nail right on the head. Their priorities are totally in the right place! /s I don’t even see a difference in balance, so I don’t know what these guys are talking about. Competitive is a joke.

          • Like seriously, if that’s the reasoning as to why shit gets changed than that’s pathetic

          • BradyAlucard

            Oh look, the first thing I see when I go on Dan Bunting’s Twitter. Treyarch’s priorities are *totally* in the right places! https://twitter.com/danskdansk/status/321076881875165185 Oh wait it’s from 2013 lol.

          • Kyle Kerr

            Someone who sees what I mean they have to cater the Mlg fags

          • Ray Ozbas

            It’s not just MLG players it’s everyone not just them

          • Kyle Kerr

            The VMP has got to get actually nerfed it has the range of an AR and out guns my ARS all the time same with the Kuda

      • Mario Rivera

        There was nothing logical about nerfing the kuda in a game thats already AR dominant.

        • BradyAlucard

          That’s because the Kuda is just as strong as the AR’s. You can’t seriously think that the Kuda wasn’t ridiculous. It’s the “noob” weapon.

    • Frank Rizzo

      Ahhh…gun is OP as fuck.

      • Mario Rivera

        It really isn’t OP, it’s honestly less than what a SMG should be, matter of fact the a silenced KN-44 and the VMP have same TTK at close range. VMP just needs to waste another bullet to kill as fast as the KN. They nerfed the SMG speed and handling advantage in BO3 so its pretty much a KN-44 with lesser range, accuracy and power. In exchange for all these shortcomings it runs 5℅ faster and strafes like a AR with stock on it by default. Sadly the VMP is not the best SMG because of how good it is, it’s because of how bad the other ones are. And now with the kuda nerf as well they really want you to stick to using ARs.

        • Michael Romo

          It’s the range that needs to be nerfed on the VMP

          • Mario Rivera

            After just 12.5m the vmp is disadvantaged against virtully everything else in the game tho. Y do you want them to turn the VMP into a vesper with a huge firerate nerf? There would be no point in using it then. You cant just ignorantly request changes without understanding how each the gun sticks out among its peers.

  • I’m glad they removed Mercenary Moshpit since nobody ever played it. As for Fracture, I wish I had known of the new medals before I decided to play a few games last night. https://twitter.com/RuggedSavior/status/758244494911401984

        Funny how I see you correcting him all the time when his doing that shit on purposed.

        • LMAO atleast 1 person gets it.

          • I correct you just to be an asshole. I know you aren’t being serious

          • stfu just becuz you’re an fgt

          • nothing wrong with being a fgt

          • I didn’t say there was. ARE YOU ASSUMING?

          • no, just reminding everyone here that being an fgt is cool

          • Sentinel

            He’s just full of himself LOL.

          *purpose

  • Sentinel

    1.929GB update…Glad I upgraded the hard drive. I grew tired of deleting content on my PS4 just to make space for such things! You will be surprised

    • I changed my hard drive too. I took out the 500 gb one and ate it. I replaced it with a 1 gb USB

      • Sentinel

        I replaced it with a 2 Terabyte HD

  • BradyAlucard

    “Kuda
    Reduced 3-hit kill damage range.
    Reduced 5-hit kill damage range.”

    PRAISE VONDY.

    Wait.

    Unless it’s a buff?

    • Former

      Nerf.

      • BradyAlucard

        Thought so. I was just making sure.

  • John

    Can somebody please explain the ADS changes. If ads is increased does that make it slower, or faster?

    • Increased – Faster
      Decreased – Slower

    • djml9

      ADS Speed increase = faster
      ADS Time increase = slower

  • biggunz lu

    bout time they buff the Kuda a bit man that VMP homie it needs a nerf badly.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2fanRjD5RU

  • Johtoboy

    Ok then just nerf every single gun until it takes three clips to kill somebody. Thanks Tryarch…

    • BradyAlucard

      Better than melting with a Kuda, VMP, Dingo, or KN-44…

      • RiseOfA1

        The one that pisses me off is the man-o-war DID NOT NEED A NERF AT ALL! And I rarely use it. As for the kuda fix the recoil its not precise anymore. It wasn’t the most accuate anything anyways

        • Nexy_Gamer

          Thank goodness it was a buff, not a nerf.

          • Former

            No…Man O War was nerfed, buddy. Reduced speed = slower.

        • BradyAlucard

          The Man-o-War’s damage was pretty ridiculous, I’m not gonna lie, but the fire rate was pretty low.

    • ShadowMaster862

      Really? So they made the TTK a little slower for some guns. Maybe now you and others will use some different guns for once. If you’re accurate, you’ll only need 1-2 mroe bullets then you did before. Quit complaining.

      • COD needs the same TTK as Destiny.

      • Johtoboy

        I am one of those people who uses all weapons. My problem is, most of them kill too slowly. Instead of nerfing the VMP and MoW, they should have buffed OTHER guns to be as good as those two.

        Even the Kuda got nerfed. That was far from necessary. With all these unnecessary nerfs, I’m surprised the KN-44 wasn’t touched. I bet they nerf it next patch.

        • ShadowMaster862

          I don’t see any problems with the KN-44. And buffing more weapons means would bring more variety, but it’d still leave many weapons behind. And if they buffed EVERYTHING up to VMP and Kuda, then TTK would be too fast. (This was a problem in Ghosts)

          • Johtoboy

            I’d rather have Ghosts TTK than what we have now to be honest.

          • ShadowMaster862

            Well, Ghost’s TTK was fast because that game actually had great hit detection. I feel like if this game had Ghost’s hit detection and the TTK in it has now, we’d have a fairly similar overall TTK to BO2’s.

  • Mario Rivera

    The KN-44 is already the best weapon for a SMG type aggressive role in the game, these nerfs only cement that further…

    • BradyAlucard

      It’s pathetic that the Dingo wasn’t even touched in this patch.

      • Mike_Scarnn

        This game is pathetic

        • BradyAlucard

          Only because of the sweats. The game at its core is a great experience.

      • jt3z

        How so? Dingo is actually quite balanced. Hell the LMG’s outside of maybe the BRM(Need a slight fire rate buff) are quite balanced.

        • BradyAlucard

          The Dingo’s fire rate and damage is ridiculous.

  • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

    Prophet – Tempest – Reduced beam size.

    What does this even mean?

    • It reduces his D size, it was too big for battery and outrider.

      Just big enough for ruin however.

      • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

        lol

    • Drasadex

      I believe they mean the width of the beam, so maybe you have to be more accurate with your Tempest shots now.

  • Logic Chief

    What’s the update size? if it’s even a full update

    • Drasadex

      it was about 1GB or so.

  • Ak74u

    The kuda and vmp we’re nerfed. Wtf now all the smgs really suck all because people bitch about good weapons

    You know what really needs a nerf?
    Shieva
    Gravity spikes

    • You know what needs a buff?

      -R.A.P.S
      -Scythe

      You know what needs a nerf?

      -HG 40
      -Weevil
      -Vesper

      *BTW I’m joking, I don’t actually mean this*

    • Michael Romo

      How tf can they nerf the gravity spikes? It already has a very short range. And the Tempest is fine. The Shieva is less powerful than the MX Garand, so I don’t see how it’s a problem. And when the VMP can beat an AR at a long range, that’s a problem

      • Ak74u

        Are you retarted? The Sheiva is more stronger than the MX garand. It’s a two shot kill at any range and doesn’t have the small magazine with the long reload. And the gravity spikes is op in hard point and domination. They can nerf it by reducing its blast radius aka the circle

  • BradyAlucard
    • In every other COD game aim assist was super high on Snipers. In BO3 the snipers don’t have any aim assist, apart from drakon and that has a little bit aim assist.

      WE NEED AIM ASSIST!!! How am I gonna make my swagalicious montages without aim assist

        “Gun balancing sucks, IW is doomed.”
        “Good thing [insert SHG’s next COD game] is almost around the corner!”

      • BradyAlucard

        If this game could get any more ruined somehow, it’d be Vahn buffing the snipers. If it’s aim assist, I’m done.

    • RdJokr

      Let’s be honest: The RSA needs a buff.

      • BradyAlucard

        Yes it does, but if the buff adds aim assist, then this game is doomed.

        • RdJokr

          I don’t think Treyarch would go back to adding just that. I mean, the players are actually getting good with the snipers without aim assist now. That’s a good thing. Even though the RSA for some reason has aim assist when introduced…

          But it doesn’t matter to me anyway, because PC.

      • Nexy_Gamer

        The broccoli is meant to be a two hit kill.

    You know what really needs a nerf? The fucken lag and the latency.

    • I lag on BO3 so much, it’s not my internet because I don’t lag on other games and my internet is fast.

      • Sentinel

        Yeah, it is really bad. Specially when you cut the corner and shot a player…he kills you first. You look at the kill cam and he saw you wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy before you turn around the corner. Now that is complete BS

        • Mr_ysi42t96 (Fazal’s fgt son)

          That’s one of the BS things I was talking about the other day about how cod isn’t fair anymore

        • The Cow Goes Moo~

          That’s not “lag”. That is the game engine struggling to keep the information going. Which isn’t surprising giving the engine is the same one from Quake aka ancient ass engine for everything that is happening.

      • Sexy Mcgee

        I’ve played with 2 different ISPs in the past couple of months. Both were good. Optimum which was 60 down, 25 up. 9ms ping and 4 jitter to the nearest server. Now I’m have Fios 100 + up and down. 3 ping and 4 jitter AT THE WORST. In both cases it was mostly a stable 9-17ms ping to COD servers. In both cases the routers were set up properly with recommended QOS, port forwarded settings.

        In both cases the Lag Comp disadvantage can get ridiculous and it gets better or worse depending on the hotfix. The best hotfix I remember which completely got rid of lag comp issues was the Dec. 21 one.

    • Assist King

      Agree 100%. Keeps getting worse on both the One and 4. 4 for me is almost unplayable now because of the lag.

      • Sentinel

        True and it is spontaneous lag too. I literally close the game because it becomes so unplayable.

          Lol no they always just mask it behind a super fast ttk. The shit is exactly the same.

          • djml9

            I play HC. The TTK is just about the same. IW’s games have wayyyy better hit detection.

          • Oaksoh

            This is true. Whenever I’d have friend complain about TTK in Ghosts, I’d have them set up a private match in BO2 and Ghosts. I told them to shoot one bullet at a time to the foot and see which kills faster. Each gun’s equivalent would be the same. Treyarch always had crappy hit detection imo. Black Ops 1 was pretty solid… if you were on a godly connection.

          • Assist King

            Agree. People love to hate on Ghosts, but almost no lag and awesome hit detection.

          • Oaksoh

            There you go. My problems with it were knifing and IED’s. Best DLC out of any CoD game, kick ass camos, graphics were smooth. I’ve played Ghosts for three years now and have experienced less than 10 host migrations. My first day of BO3 I encountered well over 10 host migrations.

      • Joshua Elias

        I had lag issues myself I still get the occasional wtf lag for 30 seconds and then it goes away don’t know what that’s about only happens now and again like every couple weeks typically. The lag could be your internet as well or if you play with people further away from you is another thing. I have friends in cali and I’m from pa if I rol with them my ping is always over 100 if I’m on my own connection typically 15 anyone around pa usually 30-50. My internet is only 12mbps down and less than 1mb up so yeah I had configured alot in my router to get it to work as good as it does.

        • Assist King

          I have great wired internet and use netduma. You did bring up a good point about playing with friends. I have a lot less issues when on my own then with a party. Three guys I play with are within 20 miles of me and I am always the party leader.
          Is just weird. Thanks for the feedback everyone

          • Joshua Elias

            I am also on a wired connection, it was worth a shot to see if it helped but for me since I live in the middle of nowhere pre much there isn’t any interference so the wifi vs cable for my connection didn’t change anything. Yes I have noticed it since I’ve met so many good people online who are now friends we always roll together, but when I am on their connection the ping difference is very noticeable and it sucks. I wish internet was better than it currently is, the internet in the us is not very good, to be honest, It’s one of the worst countries in internet speed and reliability. How long has fiber been out and it took google to start running it’s own fiber optic service to get these damn other companies to start doing the same. Totally ridiculous how much it costs for ancient technology. I’m still on dsl, and it’s like 100 bucks a month for 10 f****ing mbps, how is that a deal ya know.

          • Assist King

            I appreciate the help. I can say from my own experience that my internet upload and download increasing has not had one impact on the lag or other issues. Time warner upgraded my area. Download is over 200 and upload is at 50 now after I bought an expensive new modem. Game plays the same as when my download was 20 and upload was 5.

          • Joshua Elias

            Exactly what I am saying my internet is 12 downloas and like 800kbps upload and my ping is almost always lower than my buddy who has comcast at 120mbps down and 40 up. Idk if its cuz of how I have it set up I do not have a netduma i wanted one for some of the extra features but I was able to hold consistent with some port configurations.

      • Jon

        Its crazy how some people are never effected by lag. I have been playing since November and can honestly say that lag has only been noticeable a handful of times on my end.

    Okay so they decide to nerf the vmp and buff the man o war

    Why?

    • Former

      Man o War is nerfed. Reduced speed= slower.

      • jt3z

        It could go either way. Meaning to reduce the time it takes to ads

        • Former

          The wording is a bit disagreeable, yet it definitely got nerfed. If you reduce the speed of your car, are you going faster or slower? Slower, of course.

        • RdJokr

          Reduced speed = slower

          Reduced time = faster

          In this case, reload and aim speed is reduced, meaning the time to reload and the time to aim is increased.

          English is a confusing language sometimes.

          • jt3z

            Its not English thats confusing its Treyarcs use of it which is lol. I mean they could honestly use better terms for this crap

  • Nexy_Gamer

    In my opinion, they should bring the MG42. And pack-a-punched it should be called buzzsaw. And thank god the man o war got a buff, I thought it wasn’t powerful enough.

      • Yeah, pretty much, why not

        • Former

          All fun and games until you’re the one getting shit on by it. There’s already enough crutches in this game to help noobs out. OP weapons shouldn’t be one of them.

          • Of course it does why not overpowered is fun, i welcome it.

  • Johnny

    Why the hell did they touch the Kuda? That weapons needs a buff. BS.

  • TheHorror

    I agree with everything except for the Man-O-War nerf. That thing was perfect the way it was IMO

    • They buffed it

      • Former

        “Reduce the speed” seems a little vague. You sure it’s a buff?

  • Mario Rivera

    Instead of giving the pharo less recoil/tightening up its bullet spread a bit so it could be more consistent, giving the razorback a headshot bonus so it can actually belong in the same game as the kuda (which is just a ok at best gun to begin with) they continue on their mission to fill cod up with nerfed ass guns nobody has fun using. When ppl see honeybadger, acr, m16, AK, tar, famas etc they get super excited cuz those guns were so fun and satisfying to use. This recent direction of nerfed ass forgettable guns needs to stop if cod is ever going to return to glory. Give us a game where all of these amazing guns have to compete with each other, no filler guns.

  • Drank Bleach

    Doesn’t matter what gets nerfed or buffed this game is so inconsistent from the gunfights to the hit detection.

    • joey

      lag comp, or whatever that sketchy nonsense is. i thought AW was bad – at least half my deaths in BO3 were from opponents that were supposedly in my line of sight, but don’t appear until they’ve already unloaded half their clip (or they appear around a corner having already fired, and we’re not talking pre-firing).

      RUINED the game for me. even if the guns weren’t as tired, bland (compared to AW), i doubt i’d still be playing.

      • Drank Bleach

        That’s why i quit playing awhile ago, too many bullshit deaths.
