Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Players Outraged Over MP5 Change

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Players Outraged Over MP5 Change

While Activision is heading toward Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War all guns blazing, it's important not to forget Call of Duty: Warzone. The battle royale game is still an important part of the expanded lore and is expected to directly tie into Black Ops Cold War. Now, outraged players are up in arms that the MP5 has been secretly tweaked just ahead of the Call of Duty League Championship Weekend.

For as long as we can remember, the MP5 has been considered one of the best SMGs in the game. Season 5 of Modern Warfare - dubbed Reloaded - has brought changes across the board and will be headlined by the Games of Summer event from August 28 until September 7. While there's also the arrival of the new FiNN LMG in both Modern Warfare and Warzone, there was no mention of changes to the MP5 in the patch notes.

 

There's a problem with the consistency of what's actually going on with the MP5. Some gamers have reported issues with the iron sights and the gun being too zoomed in. The sights are a crucial part of the MP5, so this is more than just a minor alteration. The big one here is that no one can seem to decide quite what's going on. Royal Ravens favourite Matthew "skrapz'" Marshall said the MP5 has an increased recoil alongside the sights problem. Marshall reported that the MP5 seems to be "bouncing" around the screen. 

This would seem like a relatively minor issue if not for the fact it looks like it will stay until the end of Season 5. With the CDL coming this weekend and a grand prize of $4.6 million, professional players are rightly more than a little pi**ed that Infinity Ward won't fix the SMG.

Posting on Twitter, Chicago Huntmen's Seth "Scump" Abner said the MP5 won't be returned to its former glory. Considering the SMG's place at the centre of the game's meta, it's baffling that the devs would make changes at this late stage. Although the MP5 has faced some nerfs over its time in the game, this is the biggest and most devastating yet. With CDL just around the corner, timing couldn't be worse!
