The new MG 82 for ‘Call Of Duty: Warzone’ is destined for an early nerf

The MG 82's supremacy will be short lived

Call Of Duty: Warzone‘s newest weapon, the MG 82, is already getting a nerf according to Raven Software.

The announcement came in a Tweet from Raven Software who said: “The MG 82 (BOCW) made one too many trips to the Pack-a-Punch machine before deploying to Verdansk.”


The tweet also mentioned both the Pack-a-Punch machine and Element 115, both of which are a reference to the lore of the Black Ops’ Zombie mode.

The bracketed “BOCW” refers to Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War which is where the MG82 LMG originates.

There have been ongoing issues with weapons ported across from Black Ops Cold War into Warzone, and Raven Software has been fairly swift in updating guns and trying to keep the game’s competitive modes balanced.

Season Four of Warzone also launched with a new limited-time event called Ground Fall, and it also added in a new dirt bike, and long-teased Red Doors.

Red Doors make a noticeable sound when players are near them and on entry, the will warp players to one of a number of small rooms around the map that contain orange loot crates and cash.

Shortly after launch Raven Software had to update the game to remove armoured cargo trucks, as there was an ongoing issue with players becoming invisible after entering them.


The notorious Roze skin which has plagued competitive modes in Warzone for being hard to see has also received an update in order to make it less of an issue.

In other recent news, Square Enix has said that the launch of its latest game, Outriders, on Xbox Game Pass has been a success.

When asked about the response to Outriders, Square Enix president Yosuke Matsuda stated that Square Enix noted that “the number of active users has also beaten our expectations”.
