As Warzone’s Season 4 draws nearer, fans are starting to predict the latest patches and fixes Activision and Infinity Ward will implement into the successful Battle Royale mode.
Does the Grau 5.56 Deserve a Nerf?
The most winningest player to ever play Call of Duty has weighed in with his thought in a very colourful way.
Octane being a decorated pro player and Maven being one of the CDL's finest casters. While this may seem like a funny dig at Maven, the point is that the skill gap between two players has been drastically reduced thanks to this weapon.
Prominent Call of Duty player and streamer, Tyler “FeLo” Johnson, is one of those players advocating for the Grau to be adjusted.
So... should they nerf the grau or should they nerf the grau?— Tyler (@FeLo) May 28, 2020
The Grau’s popularity stems from its low recoil and high damage output, meaning it outclasses most other automatic weapons and even some sniper rifles in medium-to-long-range gunfights. It is commonly used by top YouTubers and streamers in a class setup alongside the MP5.
The Grau’s unique archangel barrel attachment also adds an easy-to-use iron sight alongside improving the range and recoil stability, freeing up an extra attachment slot for other modifications.
Players also point out that the conditions to unlock the Grau are particularly hard to do in Warzone, putting the gun behind a paywall that gives an advantage to those who own the full version of Modern Warfare.
Others in the community have defended the Grau 5.56, dismissing claims it needs to be nerfed.
Activision and developers Infinity Ward have not yet given any indication of what will be patched in the Season 4 update, but it is likely they have plenty of fixes in store.
