Warzone players call for devs to fix Groza iron sight glitch

Warzone players are calling for the developers of the Call of Duty battle royale to fix the frustrating Groza iron sight glitch.

Warzone Groza Iron Sight Glitch

Season 3 of Call of Duty: Warzone has brought a new glitch that is causing the Groza iron sight to not display properly on the screen of players leading to a great deal of frustration.

Plenty of new things were added to Warzone with Season 3, such as the new Verdansk ’84 map and the new PPSH and Swiss K31 weapons.

However, various bugs have also made an appearance in the Call of Duty battle royale during Season 3, with one of the most frustrating ones being the Groza iron sight glitch, which has led to players calling for the developers to fix this issue soon.

Warzone Groza Iron Sight

The Warzone Groza iron sight glitch in question consists of the middle piece of the Assault Rifle’s sights being completely missing from a player’s screen when they aim down the weapon’s sights.

This has been especially frustrating in the new Verdansk ’84 Gulag, as the Groza is one of the weapons players may have to use when fighting for their lives in the Gulag.

This Warzone Groza iron sight glitch has now become a prevalent headache for players in the Gulag during Season 3.

This frustration has led to players calling for the developers of the Call of Duty battle royale to fix this issue, as it is affecting their ability to properly use this Assault Rifle, which is one of the more popular picks for players when it comes to choosing the close-range option for their loadouts recently.

The developers have not responded to these calls yet, so it remains to be seen how long players will have to deal with the Warzone Groza iron sight glitch in Season 3.

Hopefully, all of the frustration that it is currently causing players trying to use this Black Ops Cold War weapon in their Gulag and gunfights on Verdansk ’84 or Rebirth Island is something that will be a thing of the past soon.

JGOD explains stealth buff to Cold War optics in Warzone Season 3

Warzone stats master JGOD has given players a look at a Cold War stealth buff for optics that will no doubt help when it comes to making loadout choices.

JGOD Warzone Cold War Optics Stealth Buff

Warzone stats wizard JGOD has given a community a look at a recent stealth buff for the Black Ops Cold War optics that look to have provided a noticeable reduction in recoil that players will no doubt want to take advantage of when playing.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War brought a plethora of content into Warzone when integrated into the Call of Duty battle royale. A large portion of this content was the various optics that players could use on their Black Ops Cold War weapons.

JGOD, who is known as the top content creator in the community when it comes to testing various things in Warzone, recently explained how a stealth buff had been applied to a couple of the optics available for players to use on their Cold War weapons in Warzone that will provide players who use them with a strong reduction in recoil.

The first test that JGOD explains in his video shows how the Axial 3x scope now provides a 20% reduction in vertical recoil compared to the iron sights for the Krig 6 firing when standing, which is the current meta Assault Rifle most players are using in Season 3.

Warzone Cold War Stealth Buff Optics

Now, the SUSAT Multizoom Cold War optic recently emerged as the go-to weapon sight for many players. Still, JGOD explains that the Axial 3x actually provides a larger statistical reduction in recoil.

However, the nature of the Axial 3x zooming in more than the SUSAT Multizoom and having greater idle sway provides more of a visual increase in recoil, leading to more of a placebo effect regarding the SUSAT Multizoom having less recoil.

When it comes to mounting, JGOD explains that the overall reduction in recoil that having your weapon mounted in Warzone results in there not being as much as a noticeable difference in recoil reduction for the Axial 3x and SUSAT Multizoom when compared to firing a weapon with these sights when you are standing.

Moving on to the Stoner 63 LMG, JGOD shows how the same test resulted in the Axial giving the Stoner 63 a 10% reduction in vertical recoil and similarly less recoil reduction for the SUSAT Multizoom.

Warzone Cold War Stealth Buff Optics

When it came to having the Stoner 63 mounted, JGOD found that the Axial 3x still provided a Cold War stealth buff of around a 10% reduction in recoil.

In contrast, the SUSAT Multizoom did not provide any recoil reduction for the Stoner when mounted.

Thanks to the work of JGOD, Warzone players now know that the Cold War stealth buff for the Axial 3x and SUSAT Multizoom make these two optics the best choices for players currently in Season 3.

MW MP5 making a comeback in CoD: Warzone Season 3

The MW MP5 has recently been making waves again in Warzone Season 3 following a hiatus after the Black Ops Cold War integration for the battle royale.

Warzone MW MP5

The MP5 from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare had been one of the strongest weapons in Warzone during the game’s early days, and the MW MP5 Warzone loadout has recently seen somewhat of a comeback in Season 3 of the Black Cold War cycle in the battle royale title.

There was a considerable period in Warzone where the MW MP5 was a mainstay in the loadouts of most players trying to achieve victory on Verdansk. However, the SMG saw a decline in use following the integration of Black Ops Cold War in Warzone, where weapons like the Mac-10, FFAR, and the Fara 83 have taken the place of the MW MP5 as the main secondary for players.

Warzone MW MP5

This is why some players have a pleasant surprise to see that the MW MP5 Warzone loadout has begun to see a resurgence in Warzone Season 3 over the past couple of weeks.

Two of the biggest instances the community has seen when it comes to the MW MP5 Warzone loadout making a comeback were recent performances by FaZe Clan member Booya and popular content creator Cloakzy.

Booya’s performance was a sight to behold, as the FaZe Clan member was able to secure a total of 34 kills playing solo against enemy squads with the CR-56 AMAX and the MW MP5.

Booya showed that the Modern Warfare MP5 can still mow down enemies without any trouble, even though it has been out of the spotlight for some time.

Booya stated that the CR-56 AMAX and MW MP5 is his current Warzone tournament loadout, which is high praise for the MW MP5, considering players only use the best weapons possible when competing.

Cloakzy was able to take the Modern Warfare SMG into a match and collect a total of 20 kills using it as his secondary weapon for close-range battles and showed that it is still a powerful weapon when built for aggressive play.

Both players took advantage of the hip-firing bonuses that the Merc Foregrip and 5mW laser, as these two attachments, allow for incredibly accurate hip-firing that takes away the need to aim down the gun’s sights and waste valuable seconds in a gunfight.

It remains to be seen if the MW MP5 Warzone loadout will make a drastic comeback among the vast majority of the community from now on.

However, as Booya and Cloakzy recently demonstrated, it is still a very viable weapon to use for close-range fights.
