Call of Duty: Warzone

Warzone players continue to call for devs to nerf overpowered Kali Sticks

Warzone players are still not happy with how strong the Kali Sticks are in Season 6, as they call for the devs to nerf the melee weapons.

Warzone Kali Sticks

Some players enjoy using the Kali Sticks in Warzone Season 6 and for good reason, they’re incredibly strong. However, this ultimately leaves others complaining, as some players have called for the devs to get them nerfed.

Warzone Season 6 has quite a few meta weapons to choose from, including the Cold War AK-47 and most recently the Tec-9.

There are also some great secondary options as well, with some players opting to use melee weapons.

One of the strongest of these melee weapons is the Kali Sticks, which has caused some controversy among the community.

Reddit user LordAzaton has brought the strength of the Kali Sticks to the communities attention on the Warzone subreddit, stating: “Not even full armour can stop a one hit kali stick.”

Melee is already strong in Warzone even without a melee weapon, as long as you have a weapon to hit your enemy with, you can usually take down a fully armored enemy in just two hits.

Players have long been dissatisfied with how quickly you can be taken down by a melee, but the Kali Sticks seem to have made the situation worse.

The post contains a video of the Kali Sticks incident that the user claims as proof for the melee weapon being too strong. The video shows the player with full armor being taken out by one hit of the Kali Sticks, which is not meant to happen.

Not only does the player get taken out, but also one of their teammates, although they are actually taken out with two hits which is the amount the Kali Sticks is meant to kill in.

Ultimately, this is most likely a bug that the developers will need to look into, as it seems the issue is that one of the players is hit twice, but the game registers the second hit on both players, even though one of them is full health.

This player isn’t the only one having issues with melee in the game and wanting it to be nerfed, as one comment reads: “f**** ridiculous. why this s*** aint nerfed is beyond me.”

It remains to be seen if the Warzone Kali Sticks will ever be on the receiving end of a nerd, but we will be sure to update you with any future changes for this powerful melee weapon if any are ever made. For more Warzone, check out our guide on how to get a Juggernaut suit from the Bunkers.

EA employee accused of stealing & selling Apex Legends accounts

A Reddit user has accused someone who they believe is an EA employee of stealing Apex Legends accounts and selling them off.

An Apex Legends player has accused an EA employee of stealing their account and selling it off to make a profit, suggesting they have done it to multiple players.

Apex Legends players should be feeling pretty excited for the game’s future, especially since Season 11 was announced, promising fans a brand new map Storm Point, as well as Legend Ash.

Having said that, it isn’t all sunshine, as one player has accused an individual, which they believe may be an EA employee, of stealing accounts and selling them off to make their own “side business.”

The player accusing the possible EA employee is karankhushalani, claiming that their account is one of many that has supposedly been stolen and sold off. The post is very long and detailed and even has some links to screenshots which the user claims as proof of the EA employee’s apparent theft.

Essentially, the player had a stacked account, with “60,000 kills, multiple Predator and Master badges, 9 heirlooms, and 650 legendaries,” and is claiming this is the reason his account was stolen. The player met a “random guy” while playing in EU servers who was impressed by his account.

The player then showed the random teammate their skins and Heirlooms on a Discord stream. An hour later, the account was hacked, and even after getting it back through EA support, the account email was changed once again.

The player who he claims hacked his account reportedly stated they told him that they work for EA, and that he knows the EA support worker he has been chatting to, stating the worker’s name which he shouldn’t have the information about. The player has gone back and forth trying to claim their account back to no prevail.

The support lines told him there was nothing they can do and in no way the person that is hacking him is associated with EA. Fast forward, the player finds an EA customer service rep and they are also dumbfounded at what is happening to the account.

The player’s account is banned for cheating and then it is almost immediately overturned, adding fuel to the possible EA employee claim: “At this point, I’m more and more sure that he’s an actual EA employee gone rogue.”

The player is still fighting to get their account back and claims that even some customer service employees are starting to think it could be someone within the company. Further, the user also claims that this same hacker has committed the theft to several other players:

“Also I have a friend of a friend who has had a 4 heirloom account stolen from him by the EXACT same person (we matched discord ID’s) and I found 10 similar threads with the exact same circumstances while googling this.”

However, these are just claims and are in no way confirmed pieces of information. It is possible this hacker could just be saying he is an EA employee to aggravate the victim, An EA developer named Brad has now reached out to karankhushalani to help with the situation, assuring them that the company is looking into the situation.

We will update this story with any further information if any is made available.

FIFA 22 players slam “dead” Ultimate Team content

FIFA 22 Ultimate Team is supported with a stream of fresh content, however fans are angry with quality of the SBCs and objective this year.

FIFA 22 Ultimate Team has been live for just over a month, and a handful of promotions like Ones to Watches and Road to the Knockouts have already been and gone. This hasn’t stopped FUT fans from slamming the daily content EA have rolled out.

While the draw of building an Ultimate Team is what gets players through the door, it’s the constant stream of content and promotions that keeps them around.

So far in FIFA 22, we’ve been treated to the Ones to Watch and Road to the Knockouts promos, with plenty more on the horizon.

However, fans have slammed the lack of daily Squad Building Challenges and objectives so far in FIFA 22, calling this year’s content “dead.”

Despite the regular big promotions, FIFA fans have been disappointed with how little daily content has been released by EA so far in FUT 22, saying there is little to work towards.

Reddit user BavarianAngel posted claiming “the content is so dead,” after weeks of SBCs with very slender rewards and few meaningful objectives.

Other fans responded in agreement, saying there is “nothing to play for” during the week outside of the usual seven Divison Rivals wins.

Many also called out the SBC rewards, which have tended to be extremely low-value packs or 75+ players, which are highly unlikely to give out top-rated superstars.

While there have been some player SBCs, like the RTTK Nabil Fekir and Record-breaker Inaki Williams, fans feel that only releasing them occasionally is making the game “boring.”

“I just wish there was something to play for that gives me the chance at gaining some coins apart from 30k every week and Weekend League if you’re even able to qualify,” pleaded one fan.

The biggest problem FUT players outlined with the “subpar” content so far this year is how difficult it is becoming to make coins.

“This version of FIFA is the best I have played and they managed to ruin it somehow with s**t content,” said another.

They argued that nerfing the quality of SBCs and objectives means that it’s increasingly harder to earn good players without resorting to buying FIFA points.

After all the praise that FIFA 22’s gameplay has recieved, fans are clearly disappointed that EA isn’t giving them much incentive to keep coming back.

It remains to be seen if the developers will work to improve the daily content and allow the game to thrive over the course of the entire year.
