Crossbow nerf in Warzone disgusts players

Published

The June 11 Warzone update introduced a major nerf to the Crossbow, which could one-shot kills since the start of Season 4, but players are sad to see the weapon become useless again.

Warzone Season 4 brought numerous weapon balance changes, shaking up the meta and forcing players to adapt. However, one of the buffs not mentioned in the patch note gave the Crossbow the ability to one-shot kills provided explosive bolts were used.

This was quickly fixed a week later with the June 11 update, which reduced the damage of 20″ Blastcap Bolts, ensuring that it would once again take at least two shots to take down an enemy.

However, players have not reacted well to this change, as many feel that the Crossbow has returned to being unusable like it was before Season 4. Reddit user ‘fatesoffspring’ shared a post complaining that “the Crossbow has become useless again.

My favorite weapon in CoD has been the Crossbow since BO1, and I loved how it worked in Warzone 1 before they nerfed it“, said the author of the post. “Now they briefly brought it back to how it was, and they’ve already deleted it. For what ? I’ve barely come across anyone using it, but they let the Kar be used by 85% of the lobby? It’s ridiculous.

This player is not the only one to share this opinion, ‘SINISTERZL1’ started another discussion thread in which he specified that he was “disgusted by this nerve“.

Both posts received numerous responses from other Warzone players, criticizing the decision to remove the Crossbow’s one-shot kill ability and arguing that it makes the game’s meta less interesting.

It’s a weapon that requires skill, high risk, and high reward. But it doesn’t work with mid and long range aim assist, so they don’t want that“, said one response, before another added: “They are so bad with variety. Clearly they only want one type of gameplay.

Others claimed they were “devastated” by this change and said that killing enemies in one shot with explosive bolts was the most fun they’ve had in Warzone in a while, because it was effective without being overpowering.

However, some have pointed out that since the original buff was not mentioned in the patch notes, then it may have been unintentional, leaving the nerf unavoidable.
