      • FazalGaming

        no, im not a fgt, i dont capitalize furst

        • lunator100hd .

          Then who is that guy? never seen him before

      You dont comment for “secund” scrub, only furst.

  • Awe damn they nerfed the MR6? I love that weapon to death. It’s soo good

    • Game of Phones

      Really? I found it a struggle to get it Black Matter. The other 2 pistols are far superior in my opinion.

      • lunator100hd .

        RK5>MR5>L CAR 9

      • RK5 is alright, and L-CAR 9 is fun to use. But the MR6 just destroys, its also probably because I never go for dark matter because i dont care about it. Lol

        • Game of Phones

          I’m also a Hardcore player. LCAR is basically a SMG in that mode.

      • milos

        i found it the easiest actually, and i got a mega kill(7 rapid kills) in free for all with it, thats the whole free for all lobby lmao

    • Yeah the MR6 was hella good. It was great for finishing off an enemy when you run out of ammo. It could also be used on it’s own if you were accurate enough. I hope the nerf isn’t too bad.

      • Leo o.

        The nerf is absolute shit. the fire rate is damn near close to the shievas

      • Despite what that other guy replied with, I used the MR6 myself in a couple of games and the nerf to me is barley even noticeable.

    • Slothigans

      I could play a whole game with just that. I love it.

    • CrowReap .

      I loved using the mr6 dual weild.

    • Sexy Mcgee

      That and Vesper were my only anti-bad lag comp weapons. With both being nerfed I have zero incentive to download this game again.

  • Gamerazor247

    HA!… Wait… DAMN IT! I knew they’d nerf the MR6, but shit, I knew I should’ve mained that gun to get gold while I had the chance… Fuck.

  • TheHorror

    Thats kind of lame, i thought the MR6 was perfect how it was. All in all i can appreciate the effort Treyarch has been putting into gun balancing though, the majority of the guns are all easily viable.

  • Ak74u

    Finally I gets a fire rate nerf it was too good for a pistol

    • iext23

      There have to be some good pistols; I liked the MR6 right where it was. It was perfectly balanced in my opinion.

      • Thug Turf

        Agreed. The pistol performed well and was very viable in the hands of a person with a good trigger finger.

        • iext23

          The reason I liked the MR6 so much was because it felt like the Five-seven, which was my favorite of the secondaries in Black Ops 2. Now with this nerf, all the secondaries are a lot less viable. How am I supposed to go pistol-only anymore? (I probably could, but it would be a lot more difficult.)

          • Thug Turf

            It feels lile treyarch doesn’t want the secondaries to be viable.

          • iext23

            Yeah. I guess they’re called secondaries for a reason, but that doesn’t mean they have to be bad.

  • Ak74u

    Glad that they finally patched the Margwas the kept leaving when you tried to kill them and would stand over you when you were down

    • Margwa

      I found it cool that you could send a aggro margwa to other players. Haha.

      • Ak74u

        Yeah sometimes I was like oh great now I don’t have to deal with him lol

  • Wow, Great patch “notes” as always.

    Bug fix for Ante-Up: What bug fix?
    Safeguard robot bug fix: What bug fix?

    Weapon-pick ups, prone players… .. WTF?

    • Moreign Fance Doves

      The ante-up I believe was fixed when you chose a class with the perk, then when the match starts you chose a diff. class & you still benefit from the perk. The rest I’m clueless AF

    • Who Am I To Judge?

      The only other one I know is in Safeguard the robot would run, instead of walking across the map


    By summer we just going to be running around with our fist..

    • Cookin’ by the book

      And then they’ll nerf the fists.

      • TheDemonOfHate

        You can only use one hand now.

        • Cookin’ by the book

          But you can only use it for waving.

          • Batman

            You can get fists on rare supply drops XD

  • SpoodermanJr

    I’m Thurd

    • Quagmire



  • Ak74u

    The razorback needs a buff it’s too underpowered. It shoots slow and barley gives damage. Also the vesper needs a buff no one uses it anymore I feel like all smg are now underpowered and not viable to use except for the kuda

    • Gamerazor247

      The Razorback definitely (lol), but the Vesper? I’m pretty happy to not see tryhards maining that gun 24/7 on NUK3TOWN, smh.

    • Tuby

      Agreed. But Istill like the kuda and vmp. But the AR like hvk or kn are fun to use

      • milos

        kn is a fuckin beast with rapid fire

      • Ak74u

        I like them too but honestly I find the recoil on the VMP and vesper way too much for me. Even with a grip. I rather them keep the vesper how it was but nerf the long range. And for the VMP I’d keep it how it was but nerf the fire rate a bit

        • milos

          Yeah the vesper is completely unusable now with that recoil, vmp is still good I think, but the vesper should of been left how it was but make 4 shot up to 6meters, 5 shot up to 12 meters so it’s a 6 shot after 12 meters

          • milos

            or even a 6 shot kill after 10 meters

          • Ak74u

            Yeah the recoil is bananas on that thing

    • milos

      i agree on the razorback buff either more range so 4 shot kill to goes out to at least 30 meters or up the fire rate a to 650 rpm or just introduce a 3 shot kill range at 8 meters

      • Ak74u

        I think it needs a 3 shot up to about 8 meters or close as well i mean it fires slow and it that should make up for the slow fire rate or either get a fire rate buff

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    Out of all of the weapons to nerf? I guess that’s what happens when you think that looking at a weapon user’s K/D is actually accurate data.

  • Code Elite

    After a match when the black loading screen comes up the game will restart and take you to dashboard on xbox one, wiping all progress made in that game. Has anyone else experienced this? I don’t know if it’s the game or the console.

    • Trinityvitaliaty

      Me too.It just recently has been happening to me very frequently.I thought It might have been my console or internet.

  • Peter Griffin

    I really think they are messing up with the weapon balance. They already completely screwed up SMGs, which indirectly affected some of the ARs in the bad way as well.

    And now, they are nerfing the MR6? Meh… I’m mot sure about what they want to do.

    • lunator100hd .

      Nerfing spind out time for smgs was a huge mistake.

      • Peter Griffin

        Yes, exactly. And not only that, the ADS time nerf on the Kuda/VMP/Vesper to make it match AR’s ADS time is also a huge misake (with and without the quickdraw attachement).
        The Vesper is now purely and simply non-viable (huge recoil nerf, and hip-fire nerf), but hip fire in general got nerfed on SMG.

        The HVK-30 ADS faster than all the SMGs! With AND without Quickdraw attachement, and when sprinting out as well! It also has a better hip-fire spread than all SMGs for twice 4hit kill range with high rate of fire and low and easy to control recoil.

        For rushing, the only reason to even play an SMG over a HVK-30 is the moving speed while ADS with and without stock attachement.
        Or maaayyybe if you consider a stealth class with a suppressor for ranges penalties. But even there, the suppressed KN-44 performs better than all SMGs.

        • Ak74u

          We need good smgs they made all smgs bad and the recoil on the VMP and vesper is way too much

    • Quagmire

      I bet this really grinds your gears huh

      • Quagmire


  • Guest

    I hoped they fixed where my lobby crashed on round 26 with the dg-4


    People still play this? I haven’t touched it since November. I heard it was all pay 2 win again just like Advanced Warfare and Treyarch have started adding novelty guns which is also like AW. How COD has fallen…

  • spartanelite

    Good thing it was the first pistol I got gold

  • Trinityvitaliaty

    Interesting enough.They did’nt nerf the MR6 because it wasn’t balanced as someone with a default controller,a Scuf or any controller with trigger stops.The weapon was a a melt machine with a modded controller.We can thank our peers that have no skill for this nerf.

  • Mikey9835

    Tip: Just change your button layout so R1 or RB fires, you can spam the trigger faster for semi auto weapons

  • RobMelchor

    Nerf/Buff whatever you want Treyarch, I’m into that Man o War life!

    • milos

      watch what you say, they might nerf it lmao

  • FazalGaming

    Guys I was wondering, if they remastered and old COD game, like say Modern Warfare series, what would happen with the DLC? Would you have to re buy all the DLC, or if you purchased it before, do you keep it or will it be free? Knowing Activision my last point of it being free will never happen.

  • M

    Hmm they still havent fixed the xbox live party logo showing up on the scoreboard in tje ps4 version

    • lotterry

      Just buy an xbox one then.

      • M

        Why would i buy an xbox one?

        • lotterry

          So the logo matches silly.

          • M

            So just because some one at treyarch has been sleeping this means i should get a new console. But this does remind of the time the original bo on ps3 would throw up an error stating it couldnt connect to xbox live. Realy the cod developers should remove the xbox centric code out of the engine at least for the playstation versions. Or better yet replace it.

    • Aidan

      That’s no big deal. As long as It’s not game breaking.

  • Ghost

    Nerf Ops 3

    • Nerf Ops 3

  • milos

  • zack

    They need to fix dark matter on the kn44. It works for a few matches then only shows up halfway.
