  • Mandy

    FG42 has already a ton of recoil after the initial nerf a few days after the game released. So you want to add even more recoil and also decrease fire rate? This doesn’t make any sense at all and will render the gun useless.

    • BawjawzMcGraw

      They’ve reduced recoil.

    • Frank Rizzo

      Gun was too strong. 3 shot kill that came too fast. Surprised the Bar didn’t get something also, but this nerf was warranted. FG42 is (was) a nasty gun!

      • Bleak5170

        It was nasty at the start but 2 nerfs later it wasn’t anything too special. And now they’ve nerfed it again!

    • reamerb .

      Come on man. Lmao

    • The low fire rate makes the recoil even more manageable. Plus, it is said that the recoil was REDUCED, not increased. Notes said “recoil adjustment.” You assumed nerf. I did too until I read otherwise.

      • Where did you hear it was “reduced”? The tweet said the FG recoil had an “adjustment” which is rather vague. That could mean several things
        , including an adjustment to the recoil pattern.

        • Someone mentioned it in the comments. Still, you and I both can simply go test out the weapon and find out.

          • Well just because someone mentions it in the comments section, does not necessarily make it true 🙂

          • And that is exactly why I said we can go test it for ourselves.

  • StupidKommunity

    What happens when u make a game in which pistols are expected to be equal to assault rifles? Well, can’t answer that but I know what happens in real life when pistols try to be equal to assault rifles… they don’t.

  • Alexandre Joannis

    Why would they reduce the fire rate of the FG and add recoil? Maybe decrease the range damage but now its not usable… What AR are we gonna use? the FG would be perfectly fine if they would reduce the range damage. really not impressed with this weapon update.

    • Rooslin

      Reducing the fire rate also reduces the recoil since there is more time for the gun to center. That’s why it says recoil adjustment since they want the recoil to stay the same as it currently is while having that reduced rate of fire.

      • I hope you are right, as that seems like a logical step for them to take with the recoil given the change in fire rate. Have you tested it, or know others that have?

  • I see people making assumptions about the FG recoil being either reduced or increased. The tweet stated the FG’s recoil was getting an “adjustment,” and that can mean several things, including an adjustment to the recoil pattern. Does anyone know for sure? I see Rooslin’s assumption below is that they changed the recoil to ensure it was consistent with how it was previously (since the new reduced fire rate can impact recoil). That seems to be a rather logical guess, but does anyone know for sure?

  • Wetty Fap – Not The 3rd

    But no sniper nerf? Increased sway when scoped in maybe? No? How about increased ADS time after sprinting? Still no? Ok. Let’s adjust the other guns then.

    – Retards at SHG

    • Seriously it’s kind of ridiculous that still haven’t tweaked the sprint out times yet.

      • BradyAlucard

        And the snipers.

    • John

      If you think snipers are OP, you’re wrong, flat out. They aren’t. With no aim assist, no quickdraw, I have no problem running through snipers with a ppsh, you’re probably just mad you can’t snipe

      • Frank Rizzo

        And you’re probably 12.

      • ccrows

        Hmmm I had no problem getting SRs Diamond in this game, and I suck at sniping.

        I also had no problem getting Dark Matter with them in BO3, with no Aim assist, and once again I suck at sniping.

        ^ BTW BOTH games I have a KD of 2 or higher, and SRs need a nerf in COD WWII…

        • Kruegxr

          Lol and reg guns and granades arnt gtfo of here moron your weapons you use are just as powerful stop whining because snipers destroy you and your boasting about kd in 2017 almost 2018 I know your a virgin

          • ccrows

            1 – You’re

            2 – Virgin? Not even remotely close.

            3 – Look at your post, and learn some grammar already, otherwise they will never let you out of the 5th grade… <_<

          • Kruegxr

            Lol that’s funny it’s called short hand or text speak it’s a fast mean of typing and the funny thing is I’m in college and btw your grammar is off on yours as well 🙂 so stop throwing stones at glass houses 🙂

          • ccrows

            If you’re in college, that’s sad. You could probably get a lot of money suing your HS and Grammar school for allowing you to graduate… 😉

          • Kruegxr

            Lol look I’m you it’s high school not HS you also have an incorrect use of ellipsis btw 🙂 stop trying to correct people when your making grammatical errors yourself

          • ccrows

            That depends on what part of the world you live in. See I live in the Chicago-Land area. Saying HS, is quite common around here.

            You’re probably rural, and taking classes at Hillbilly-U… 😉

          • Kruegxr

            lmfao HS is an abbreviation which in turn is not proper english 🙂 just stop please your making me laugh at you because your or since you’re a wanna be grammar Nazi (you’re) combining the use of slang and proper english so you are showing how unintelligent you are by criticizing someones grammar when yours isn’t much better 🙂 Enjoy crying about snipers i’m bored of you 🙂

          • Cody

            ‘crizisizing’ lol. YOU PLAYED YOURSELF. Reading this little exchange was entertaining as fuck. Peace plebs.

          • Chris Brown

            btw HS is a proper abbreviation for high school. i am a college graduate, in fact I hold probably more degrees than you and have or will ever have in your life….that goes for the both of you bickering back and forth like a couple of school girls. i have worked int the school system as a substitute teacher and my mother, god rest her soal, was a teacher as well, and the HS is used after the name of the cities high school. for example Martingale HS VS Memphis HS. so in you both have nice holiday.

          • Kruegxr

            Lol you might want to check your English on what you just sent and nice try you don’t I have my associates in applied business majoring in paralegal studies im almost done with my bachelor’s in media arts and filmmaking then I’m heading to law school 🙂 🙂

          • Sai Kruger

            I think it’s funny that your trying to make them look dumb when your the one who wasted tons of money and time to graduate. And then you became a teacher which is one of the lowest paying jobs in this country which it shouldn’t be just saying it is pretty sure you can dropout of HS. And still make more then a teacher and I’m sure its no better being a substitute either. so unless your doing that because its your dream to help other peoples kids which if its true I’m sure your lying to ur self at night because that makes you look pretty dumb to waste all that time and money to never make enough to get out of debt. I’m just saying I think you look just as dumb as them if not dumber not trying to say being a teacher sucks but for what school u did and the importants of the role you have on future generations. I don’t get how anyone wants to do that job when it puts you in debt and you have the stress of making sure your setting kids up for success almost more then a parent does

          • ccrows

            Anywhoo.. If you wanna have the last word, go ahead and take it.

            I’m usually more chill than this.

            Say whatever you feel like saying back to me, whatever it is, I still wish you a good Christmas. No hard feelings, & Peace… 🙂

          • BradyAlucard

            You’re 12, why are you even playing CoD in the first place? No, the snipers don’t have to be fully auto nor “better” than full autos to be considered OP. Have you played a match against snipers?

          • Kruegxr

            Lol cry more I get out shot every time by shottys or you all and your jump shorting and dropshotting and I don’t bitch lol 🙂 just stop you sound stupid if you want realistic go play battlefield

          • BradyAlucard

            Don’t tell anyone want to do, this is a military shooter. I have a hard time believing you get outshot by other guns if you’re in a clan and you camp the whole game.

            But I’ve got something even better for you to do. Want to quickscope? Play a private match.

          • Kruegxr

            Lol I don’t camp at all lmfao I’m not Kris kyle lol nah I’m keep smacking kids like you in pubs not my fault your very shit and get out killed by a sniper get better aim 🙂

          • BradyAlucard

            Yeah, because aim’s the problem when the maps are literally tailored for you to get easy kills, clown. And skill? In a video game?

            Grow up, kid.

      • TheAdversary

        I’ve never had such an easy time getting Diamond snipers in a CoD game. I’ve also never played a CoD game where I’ve consistently outgunned SMG users at CQC just by running around with a sniper rifle. These snipers are also way too powerful for sniping, thanks to how generous the killboxes are for them.


        I decided to try quick scoping for 5 games with the kar. Went 20+ kills and with only 10 deaths or less. You kids seriously believe you’re so good at using a gun that can kill you with one bullet at any range.You have no flinch when shot, there’s literally no sway when scoped in, the reticle is dead center every time so its easy to just kill someone from any distance.

        You don’t need quick draw. Scoping in has just enough time to kill the person in front of them since the Sprint ADS is garbage. Aim assist isn’t needed when the reticle is dead center everytime you aim at someone. My dude, there’s no fucking sway when u even scope in. It’s fucking ridiculous LOL

        • Kruegxr

          I love people like you I’m a sniper I drop 23 kills a game I switch a reg gun drop 36 a game now what’s easier to use again kid lul

          • No shit a regular gun will give u better results. That’s not the point we all are making. Your life shouldn’t be in the hands of the sniper. I shouldn’t hope that the sniper misses their shot. If a sniper is in front of me, I should feel confident that I’ll kill them because that’s what should happen. If they get lucky, they get lucky. But seeing how they kill me 90% of the gun fights even while using scope ribbon, airborne division and the ppsh with grip and rapid fire. That’s a problem.

            But of course you kids love to defend this shit and think its okay for a player to have his game play decided by another player instead of the actual gameplay itself. Oh well. I’m dropping this game hard when 3arcs next game comes because we all know how they handle shit. No bullshit. No retarded deaths. They actually have a track record of giving the fans what the want and the fans having a positive reaction to what they give us. You can have with SHG since they obviously cater to the retards of the community.

          • Kruegxr

            Lol that’s y sniping was the easiest it’s been in a cod on bo3 lmfao lol go play iw you new gen stop whining about snipers or better yet go play battlefield since your shit at cod how it’s possible to be shit on cod is beyond me sniping is in the game it’s been in the game since the original cod so enjoy sucking and whining over a video game 🙂

          • BradyAlucard

            The illogic…

          • Kruegxr

            What is lol

          • BradyAlucard

            Your attempt to defend the sniping in this game…

          • Kruegxr

            Your attempt to bitch about sniping in this game is funny as hell quick scoping has been around since the first cod so please stop bitching about something that’s been in the game long before you ever touched it lol go play battlefield it’s clear retards like you will nvr change lol always finding something to bitch about

          • BradyAlucard

            I’ve been playing since CoD 4, and just because it’s been in the game for a long time, doesn’t make it okay. It’s not even your fault, it’s the developers’ fault for letting it happen in the first place.

            Don’t tell me what to do. Playing Battlefield won’t solve the *fact* that quickscoping is broken. The complaining is not without good reason.

        • BoB

          SH released a psych awhile ago that made the scopes not center when you zoomed in and you don’t need sway when you can hold your breath so it doesn’t matter

        • Imventing

          Soul*, I couldn’t help myself lmafo. Reading these comments are hilarious.

      • BradyAlucard

        You’re ignorant. The snipers are broken, get over it. The maps are essentially built for them and quickscoping is unbelievably easy.

        This coming from someone who can snipe. I can confirm that it’s OP.

      • BradyAlucard

        But they ARE OP…

    • Kruegxr

      Cry more 🙂

      • Sly

        Kar is only op sniper tho

    • Sexy Mcgee

      The only thing they need to nerf is the snap to target on snipers .That shit is stupid. Maybe add some actual flinch and scope glint.
      Also, fixing lag comp would severely hurt snipers.

    • Imventing

      couldn’t agree more

  • Felix Plante

    Fire rate buffs for mp40 and thompson… hum wut ?
    FG42 fire rate nerf… wut !?
    LMG speed buff and recoil buffs… oh thank god something that makes sense.
    Winchester damage range bufff… HELL NO!
    M712 damage nerf… SH clearly don,t know how to balance their game !

    • Crazy they buffed the combat shotgun but not the double barrel shotguns.

      • Felix Plante

        Yeah, the Winchester was already too powerfull compared to the other shotguns… The sawed-off is just a joke right now. It needs a damage buff. The range is fine I guess considering it’s a sawed-off, but being unable to one-shot-kill someone from 1m is unacceptable.

      • TheAdversary

        I have over 300 kills with the Combat Shotgun. I only recently completed the 100 OSK camouflage challenge. I have around 240 kills with the Luftewaffe and I already have gold for it. The Combat Shottie needed this buff. Sawed Off shoulda been buffed, I agree there.

    • Nella

      M712 is the machine pistol and it got nerfed not buffed

      • Felix Plante

        yeah it just changed with the full patch note. what a shame.

  • Colinator01

    Does a movement speed buff and recoil buff mean more movement speed and more recoil or less?

    • Felix Plante

      speed buff = more speed. For recoil, if I’m comparing to other patch notes it would mean a decrease.

    • Buff=improve
      Nerf=make worse

  • BradyAlucard

    These developers need to learn how to affectively patch weapons, because they don’t do anything to help the problems, and they always tune the wrong things.

    And why aren’t they still not nerfing the snipers?!

  • Kruegxr

    I love the cry baby about sniping it’s cute 🙂

    • ccrows

      It’s cool.

      COD WWII will be nothing but you and the rest of the squeakers running around with SRs around this time next year, while the rest of us will be enjoying BO4… 🙂

    • Kobrah

      It’s funny how trolls always use guest accounts… ?

    • BradyAlucard

      If facts are cute, then a sniper nerf would be adorable.

  • Does anyone have some kind of solution for the spectating problem?

    • Yeah, I thought they said they fixed it during the last update, but it still happens probably 1 out of 5 games for me.

      • Yep me too, I see a LOT of people having the issue but SHG don’t seem to be bringing it up at all :/

  • Ihammy

    Idk why you guys are tripping so bad. For comp the fg was way to OP. An I LOVE what they did for the gun the recoil is way easier to handle an it’s easier to conserve bullets. Pistol in ranked was OP also especially with akimbo now not so bad.

  • Beast Mode

    No flinch for snipers? Its still 2 hitmarkers and die?

  • boboswag99

    Bruh they need to reduce global flinch and shellshock. I feel like all the smgs could use a minor dmg buff. And is it just me or do all the silencers on smgs sound the same ? And the emotes are basically all the same. Also the dmg with silencers is really low it’s ridiculous

  • Bighoot

    T R A S H

  • Emre

    What means UI?

    • GinsuVictim

      User Interface

  • evo-reg

    And still no fix for characters changing when I play as Axis. I can’t be the only one sick of youtubers claiming every gun or gun variant is a “God gun”. Then they go and drop nukes on scrubs, everyone except K3.

    • Mandy

      Most YouTubers fake their nuke gameplays. There are several cheating methods to achieve easy nukes (if you have the time and money of course)
      1. Netduma lag switch method: If you restrict your router connecting to dedis, the game will switch to localhost p2p connections. Then you can force host lobbies just like the good old black ops 2 days…
      2. Netduma w multiple ps4s. Yeah. Just like the above method, but now you force your Netduma connecting to players inside your town (or even your home network) by simply nullifying the geofilter range. Imagine if you have some friends in your town or some extra ps4s inside your home.
      3. Keyboarding on consoles. The most common method. Almost everyone in competitive does this, so do YouTubers.
      4. Programmable macros (auto recoil management, auto drop shot, auto quick scope etc)
      5. Lobby shopping. Just try to find easier lobbies or pm people to play bad for your YouTube montage (you may need to bribe them too sometimes)
      6. Reverse boosting. Exploit the sbmm by reverse boosting to improve your chance on finding easier lobbies.

      • evo-reg

        Yeah I was definitely a victim of the lag switch on IW. Thanks for all of the information.

        • Mandy

          The lag switch method is the most common one YouTubers use. This exploits the hybrid system CoD games have: when you can’t connect to a server you switch to peer to peer. The Netduma router has built in software that allows or denies connection to official severs or specific ips. That way you can easily force host lobbies by yourself. Since you’re the lobby host a simple lag switch can take care of the rest. Why do you think all YouTubers rolling Netdumas and when they shoot an enemy they never shoot back at them?

  • Devonte

    The guns that really need a buff is the double barrel shotguns. Those shotguns are the most inconsistent shotguns in cod history. One time, it one shots and other times in two shots with inciendiery rounds within 3m

  • snake56

    I wish they would fix the winter supply drop bugs. I’ve lost 2 of them (earned in-game).

  • Justin Baker

    Yeah nerf the sniping please kinda don’t really like playing because of all the sniping
