Black Ops Cold War November 18th patch notes: MP5 nerfed

Developer Treyarch released a small updated aimed at notorious MP5.
Black Ops Cold War November 18th patch notes: MP5 nerfed

First balance update for Black Ops Cold War multiplayer is here, and as expected, it is bringing changes for one of the most overpowered weapons in the game - MP5 submachine gun.

The weapon quickly became the main target for complaints in the Call of Duty community, because of how strong and dominant it was during the first week.

Social media was flooded with memes, complaints and negative feedback about the weapon, and Treyarch is now releasing a small update to tone it down.

According to the developer, the base effective damage range has been reduced by 33% and the initial recoil has been adjusted, but Treyarch didn't provide information on what exactly this adjustment means.

Tony Flame, who's a lead game designer at Treyarch, provided some more details about the update.

He explains that they wanted to keep the update limited only to MP5 because of how many negative reactions they got for it, which implies that they initially didn't have plans to bring balance updates to the game before the Season 1 update, which will focus on both weapon and scorestreak balance changes and will bring both nerfs and buffs.
