Changes Are Coming!
Sledgehammer Games has commented on a Reddit post that they are working on the next big game update to Call Of Duty: WWII that will be coming before the first DLC ‘The Resistance’ arrives on January 30th to PlayStation 4. It has been stated that there will be many updates that have been requested by the fans in the Subreddit.
Also mentioned in the brief post is the fact they are working on the upcoming DLC as well as adding new modes to the game. Also in the pipeline is another big in-game event that was mentioned but as of yet, no details have been released as to when we will see that and what it will contain.
We’re working towards a massive full integrate, similar to our game update on 12/7 LINK, that should hit in the next couple weeks and will include many of the changes requested in this Subreddit, and our social channels. We’re also working on the upcoming Resistance DLC1, adding new modes, and engagement events. Plus, a big in-game event that’s coming up. More details soon on that.
Michael Condrey also posted on Reddit a short list of possible weapon changes that they are thinking about implementing along with the big update coming. Here is the list he posted for you to see what you think about the changes,
1) Kar98k. It’s currently setup to be the second most damaging sniper (to the Springfield by a small margin), but also the quickest scoping time weapon in the class. We’re considering an ADS in time nerf.
2) FG42. Did we go too far with the last fire rate nerf? Maybe. It’s a great weapon that we want to have as viable option with other ARs and SMGs. Might need to find a median between where it was, and where it is now.
3) M1Garand. Some sentiment of it being OP is mostly coming because of the kill potential at closer ranges. The difficulty of the weapon lies in its recoil when shot rapidly down range, but you don’t really feel the recoil when firing at close range due to recoil effecting range fights, and more consistent aim assist at closer ranges. May need to adjust fire rate, pull up time, and/ or reload time.
4) STG44. I love this weapon. And it’s such an iconic WWII assault rifle. It’s pretty versatile too. But it may need a slight buff to make it competitive with the BAR, Garand, and FG42 (if we buff as noted above), and viable against some of the most used SMGs.
It must be remembered that this list is only a suggestion that they are thinking about implementing but we would love to hear your views on what you think about these changes.
