As Season 5 of Call of Duty Black Ops and Cold War draws in closer, players are begging for some Modern Warfare weapons to be buffed.
Activision have found themselves in tough times during Season 4 as cheating spirals out of control pushing away even the most die hard Warzone fans. Many top players and popular streamers have ditched the game in favour of Apex Legends and other titles.
For those who are still playing, there are more issues than meets the eye. Players have been reporting a number of weapon balancing issues in the game as they have noticed significant phasing out of Modern Warfare weapons.
For players who prefer to use Modern Warfare weapons instead of those featured in Cold War, this has lead to some serious issues and frustrations.
Reddit user ‘TetraVaal2154’ took to the platform to share their thoughts on the issue and states that the game is “unplayable” due to the lack of Modern Warfare assault rifles.
The post read “I wouldn’t hate this game if the MW ARs were still viable.”
“I mean, I would still have frustration with hackers and all that stuff that’s been discussed to death (which, clearly, Activision and Raven are never going to do anything about) — but I think what pisses me off the most about this game now, is that for someone like myself, who only got into COD as recently as 2019 due to Modern Warfare and it’s revised emphasis on realistic gunplay, weapon animations like reloads and press checks,”
“and all that sort of stuff that appeals to a gun nut like myself — Cold War comes along, with its crappy animations, unrealistic designs (an extended mag revolver with a suppresor, lolwut?), anachronistic attachments, and just an overall emphasis on cartoonish trash that had little to no imagination put into it whatsoever, and it threw off what made this game mode so appealing to me this time last summer. “
“Factor in that virtually every CW rifle is a ‘meta’ compared to even the best MW rifles, and it’s made this game virtually unplayable for someone like myself, that really does not want to use cartoon weapons in a game that originally had a team of people that at least understood basic weapon mechanics while IW were working on the game. Anyone else feel this way, too?”
The post was soon met with a flood of upvotes and comments from other users who seemed to be in agreement.
One user said “The problem with the MW guns aren’t with the time to kill (since that update you mentioned), the issue these days is that the only attachments that help movement speed for MW guns skyrocket the recoil or tank some other necessary stat.”

There were some players of course who disagreed, but there is definitely a lot of players who would love to see these weapons return to the game.
