Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer Has An Incredibly Overpowered Starter Weapon


Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War released recently, and right now one weapon is absolutely dominating the online multiplayer. As PC Gamer reports, players have been complaining about the absolute domination of the MP5–a starter gun that far outpowers many of the later unlockable weapons.

The MP5, which has an incredible fire-rate with high damage and great range with little recoil, has become the favorite weapon of many players, and many are calling for a nerf.

According to professional player 100T Nadeshot, the MP5 “might be the most over powered SMG in Call of Duty history”. Right now there’s not a lot of variety in multiplayer because of how long it takes to level other weapons, he says.

It’s worth remembering, though, that any multiplayer game releasing in 2020 was developed in less-than-ideal conditions due to COVID-19, and testing for balance has been harder than ever. Lead designer Tony Flame has promised balance changes for the start of Season 1.

Another odd problem players have encountered is that their new PS5s are downloading the PS4 version. As with any console launch, there have been teething issues.

GameSpot’s Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War review is currently in-progress, but it’s currently sitting on an 8/10 thanks to a strong campaign.
