Warzone Players Request Nerf To Kar98k And Swiss K31 Flinch

Season 5 of Warzone introduced multiple changes to the game, including additions of new weapons along with the Battle Pass but the attention of many members of the community is focused firmly on the performance of other weapons in the arsenal. As players continue to drop into Verdansk and Rebirth Island with a number of different loadouts, players are getting frustrated with the levels of flinch produced by some sniper rifles.

In a recent Reddit post, this issue was addressed saying that the Kar98K and the Swiss K31 require more flinch in order to make it more difficult for players to use.

The post got some mixed reactions from the community and while some of them supported it, others had some different opinions. One of the Redditors pitched in to express their thoughts on flinch:

"They're both extremely OP and have been for months but people keep pretending they're perfectly balanced so they can keep using their OP gun. Exact same thing happened with the amax and when they nerfed the amax bunch of people threw hissy fits and the same will happen if/when the kar and swiss are nerfed."

Should Kar98k and Swiss K31 Be Nerfed?

The Swiss K31 is one of the best sniper rifles in the game and when it comes to a fast bolt time and ADS Speed very few weapons can beat it. On the other hand, the Kar98k Marksman Rifle has supreme mobility and a very high bullet velocity making it a perfect fit for all the playstyles in the game.

It will be quite interesting to see if the developers decide to nerf these weapons or any other change to balance out things in the game but until then, it's probably best to use the low flinch to your advantage!
