Despite an abundance of weapon buffs and nerfs in the Warzone Season 3 Reloaded update, players are calling for the devs to nerf one of the game’s strongest and most popular ARs.

Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded has brought a ton of changes to the game, including a new Perk, LTM, and various weapon changes in the patch notes.

The STG44 has been dominating in Warzone Pacific Season 3, and while some believe the new Reloaded update has made way for new weapons to shine, others feel that the STG44 meta needs to be changed, wanting the Assault Rifle to receive a nerf.

Reddit user aur0n highlighted how dominant the STG44 is in Warzone Pacific Season 3 Reloaded with a graph of the game’s most popular weapons according to their pick rates.

The title of the post makes light of the fact that the AMAX received a nerf in the new update despite not being a popular weapon, while the STG44, which is currently dominating the pick rates, was left untouched.

Some in the comments of the post can’t believe that the AMAX was nerfed so hard while the STG44 was left unchanged. As you can see from the chart, the STG44 is Warzone’s most popular weapon by a long shot, dominating the pickrates.

Since the Season 3 update, the STG44 has been considered the best AR option in the game, with various streamers providing details on the best attachments to use.

The sheer strength and dominance of the STG44 is forcing players to call for the devs to nerf the weapon, with one user commenting “nerf the stg…have you guys been playing Warzone lately EVERYONE IS USING THE STG.”

Usually, this is exactly what happens when a weapon begins to dominate over all the others, so perhaps we’ll see a nerf soon.


We’ll have to wait and see what Raven does with the STG44 in the future. This isn’t the only change players have been wanting, as some have called for the Shotguns to be removed.
