Warzone players slam the “dumbest Perk” in the history of CoD

Warzone players have hit out at one of the game’s Perks, calling it the “dumbest Perk” that CoD has ever had.

The Serpentine Perk was added to Warzone as a way of counteracting Sniper Rifles back in Season 3 Reloaded, but players have criticized how overpowered it is, calling it the “dumbest Perk” the series has ever had.

When the Serpentine Perk was added to Vanguard back in Season 3 Reloaded, players saw it as a welcome way to make fights more forgiving. The optional Perk reduced the damage of incoming bullets, explosives, and fire by 20%.

It eventually made its way over to Warzone and immediately started to frustrate players. Pretty quickly there were calls for Serpentine to be nerfed, especially after the health increase, with many feeling it was making the game too difficult.

Now, in Warzone Season 4, players have once again called out the Serpentine Perk for being too overpowered.

Reddit user beans-lol kickstarted the discussion again by uploading a clip that showed just how effective Serpentine is, even in situations that would normally spell certain death.

The video showed the OP spraying at an opponent with a mounted STG44, quickly laying waste to the opponent’s armor. Despite there being no cover nearby, and most of the shots hitting, the enemy was able to slip away thanks to the Serpentine Perk.

After they were left with no armor protection, each successful shot was met with the small snake marker which indicates that bullets are doing 20% less damage than usual. The wounded player was able to escape behind a building, leading the OP to call the Perk “insane.”

Players were quick to call out the Perk, with one reply saying: “That’s the dumbest perk in the Hissssss-tory of cod.” Meanwhile, another user compared the Perk to having an extra stash of health: “We just call it their second health bar when we see that icon pop up.”

Many seemed to support the idea of Serpentine but felt that the amount of damage it soaks up should be reduced: “I wouldn’t mind if it was 5-7 percent. 20 percent is ridiculous.” Others believed that Assault Rifles should instead be given more recoil rather than using a Perk to make them less effective.

We’ll have to wait and see if Raven decides to nerf the Serpentine in a future update, but it certainly seems as though the community would like to see a change sooner rather than later.

With Season 4 Reloaded coming soon, perhaps the devs will use it as an opportunity to tweak the Perk.

JGOD believes there’s no reason to use KBM instead of controller in Warzone

Warzone YouTuber JGOD has explained why there’s no reason to use mouse and keyboard instead of a controller.

With Call of Duty: Warzone using crossplay, the community is split between controller and mouse and keyboard. While a mouse typically offers more precision, YouTuber JGOD explained why he thinks controller is the better option.

Like almost any triple-A shooter on the market, Warzone pits both controller and mouse and keyboard players against each other. There’s long been a debate about which input is better, with each having its unique pros and cons.

Mouse and keyboard offers much more precision and fine-aim control, but a controller’s aim assist does a ton of the work for you, allowing you to snap on and track players with ease — especially at close-range.

In an August 10 stream, YouTuber JGOD explained why he feels controller players will always have the edge, and why there’s no reason to use a keyboard and mouse.

“I think it’s easy for any controller player to kill any keyboard and mouse player,” explained JGOD. “It’s literally what aim assist is for.”

“I don’t understand why people play on keyboard and mouse on CoD, it’s just asking for frustrations with the game,” he continued. “I would say even if you’re really good on keyboard and mouse, you probably feel really good, but you watch your killcam and you always feel cheated.”

JGOD is so confident in controller and aim assist’s power that he believes that if he put 100 controller and 100 keyboard and mouse players against each other at random, “the controller players would dominate the keyboard and mouse players on average.”

He did say that this probably wouldn’t be the case in Apex Legends, but in Warzone, “the controller players would dominate them.”

Whether aim assist will be tweaked in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 remains to be seen, but JGOD believes that nerfing aim assist wouldn’t work because the high-skilled players would continue to dominate and lower-skilled players would struggle even more.

Warzone players slam “awful” Terminator camo challenges

Warzone Pacific players are extremely frustrated with the challenges to unlock Terminator camos in Season 4 Reloaded.

Terminator in Warzone

Raven Software added new Terminator cosmetics at the start of Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded, and players have expressed their frustration with the crossover’s challenges.

Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded features a plethora of fun content for players to enjoy, including the Terminator crossover which brought new Operator skins and challenges to the game.

Successfully completing these in-game challenges will grant you access to numerous Terminator-themed rewards, but they are being heavily criticized by the Warzone community.

Reddit user ‘AceOfSpades90000000’ slammed these challenges in the Warzone Pacific subreddit, describing them as “awful” because of the abundance of lag and enemies using aimbots.

The Redditor claimed that these problems make it “practically impossible” to win 4 games and then expressed their admiration for those players that were able to successfully complete the Terminator challenges.

Many of the commenters agreed that the challenges are too difficult and frustrating to complete. However, not everyone agreed about aimbots being an issue, as users offered their own criticisms of the challenges.

A few players felt that the rewards being offered aren’t worth the effort required to unlock them. One user wrote: “The rewards are terrible. Am I seeing things or is the same calling card there 4 times with slightly different colors?”

The rewards also include new weapon camos that are inspired by the looks of different Terminators such as the T-800 and liquid metal T-1000 from the movies, but unlocking them is proving to be challenging.

One of the commenters claimed to have played all day without much success: “All I need is 2 wins for liquid metal but it’s impossible because everywhere I go, I get rolled and I’m not even bad at the game.”

Despite these criticisms, a few users in the thread defended the Terminator crossover and provided their fellow players with advice on how to get these challenges done quickly.

One player suggested trying the first challenges since they’re easy to complete in just a few games. You’ll have a better chance of winning 4 games if you hop into the challenges with a squad that’s comprised of your friends.

While some players have expressed their disappointment with Warzone’s Terminator crossover for being a huge missed opportunity, there are those that are able to have a good time and get these challenges done.

Warzone expert claims forgotten Vanguard sniper is “broken” with insane one-shot power

One broken Sniper Rifle is now able to one-shot players to the chest after its nerfs were reverted in Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded.

Warzone Operator using Sniper Rifle

Warzone expert Isaac ‘IceManIsaac’ Hamilton has revealed which Sniper Rifle is now capable of one-shotting enemies to the chest after the developers reverted its nerfs.

When you hop into a game of Warzone Pacific, you’ll face tough competition from opposing players and will need to select the best weapon loadouts for different combat situations in order to come out on top.

If you prefer to pick off your enemies from a distance then Sniper Rifles are the best choice, and Call of Duty expert IceManIsaac has showcased an extremely broken one that can instantly take out enemies in Season 4 Reloaded.

The Type 99 Sniper Rifle previously received a massive nerf in Warzone Pacific Season 3 and this was meant to prevent players from securing one-shot kills outside of the weapon’s max damage range.

However, this nerf was reverted in the July 28 update which increased the maximum damage range to 50 meters, up from 37 Meters. As a result, the weapon is able to eliminate enemies extremely quickly.

IceManIsaac described the weapon as “jarring and super satisfying to use.” You can use it to take out your opponents instantly with a single shot to the chest. The Warzone expert then revealed his loadout for the powerful Sniper Rifle.

IceManIsaac’s Type 99 Loadout

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: Shiraishi 712mm Sniper
  • Optic: SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x / ZF4 3.5x Rifle Scope
  • Stock: Removed Stock
  • Underbarrel: SMLE Pistol Grip
  • Magazine: 8mm Klauser 5 Round Mags
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Taped Grip
  • Perk 1: Vital
  • Perk 2: On-Hand

IceManIsaac uses many of the same attachments as the best Type 99 Warzone loadout, but he went with the Taped Grip for the faster weapon swap speed that it provides. Even if you hit a shoulder shot, you can switch to an SMG quickly to finish off your opponent.

The SVT-40 PU Scope 3-6x optic is an ideal choice for Caldera but its biggest drawback is the glint that enemies can spot, giving away your position and putting you at a disadvantage. If you want to avoid the glint, you can try out the ZF4 3.5x Rifle Scope instead

The Vital perk is a key part of this loadout as it increases the size of the critical-hit area on enemies. Finally, the Removed Stock and the SMLE Pistol Grip let you aim down sights faster.
