One of the biggest shakeups to the balance of power in “Call of Duty: Warzone” came when “Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War” was released. When that game launched, it added almost 30 new weapons to the battle royale experience right off the bat. Gamers began to notice immediately that some of these guns had huge advantages.
A gun that majorly impacted “Warzone,” and that 23% of gamers feel is overpowered, is the Stoner 63. As one “Warzone” player on Reddit put it, “This thing kills in like 2 bullets with a high fire rate and a huge mag and has almost no recoil at all.” While the gun has some significant disadvantages, like massive hits to mobility and an excruciatingly long reload time, it remains very deadly in the right hands.
The gun that scored second in SVG’s poll wasn’t a “Black Ops – Cold War” addition, but a gun that found a new life when “Cold War” shifted the “Warzone” experience. According to fans, the CR-56 AMAX was overlooked because of its heavy recoil in favor of early favorites like the GRAU and the M4A1. However, as one of the few original guns that could match the “Black Ops – Cold War” additions in terms of firepower, the CR-56 AMAX has found a new appreciation/hate among players — and 18% of poll respondents now feel it is overpowered.
