Last month the developers released the public beta test server in which was completely based on weapon balance update, but all the weapon changes weren’t confirmed till now. But finally, developers in their new community update have released all the nerfs and buffs of every weapon in the game.

It has been so long that developers are talking about weapon balance changes, and how the game once again after gunsmith will completely change. As of now, every weapon type will fulfill its specialty. This weapon balance changes will be released alongside Season 4.

Changes As Per Weapon Class

  • SMGs – We aim to strengthen this type’s close quarters’ abilities through increased damage and mobility while optimizing bullet trajectory to ensure viability at other distances.
  • Assault Rifles – We aim to strengthen the range and accuracy of ARs to ensure they have a superior combat range of 15-30 meters. This is done through improved weapon type differentiation concerning bullet trajectory, handling, and recoil.
  • LMGs – We aim to strengthen the accuracy and damage efficiency of LMGs to ensure that suppression is possible at 30 meters away while also strengthening their overall capabilities at different ranges.
  • Snipers – We aim to optimize the attributes of sniper attachments, provide more combinations of attachments, and weaken the advantages of snipers in close-range combat.
  • Marksman Rifles – We aim to make marksman rifles more nimble and agile by increasing movement speed via various attachments

Weapon Balance Changes

1.MSMC: It was one of the best weapons when COD Mobile was originally released, but later it has vanished as there was a much more viable option among other SMG’s. But it seems like developers are giving it a major buff as:

  • Highest Damage – 0-8 meters range (increased range)
  • Second Highest – 8-14 meters range (increased range)
  • Third Highest – 14-19 meters range (increased range)
  • Lowest Damage – 19 meters range or further (increased range from 17m to 19m)

Also, the firing range has been increased, the ADS speed has been increased with multiple attachments (like OWC Ranger and OWC Marksman), the reload speed is being improved, and the overall recoil is being reduced.

2. PDW-57: It was a good gun in terms of clip size and range but always lacked in bullet spread, scalability of the attachments, and bullet trajectory are all lacking.

  • Highest Damage – 0-6 meters range (increased range)
  • Second Highest – 6-15 meters range (increased range)
  • Third Highest – 15-28 meters range (consolidated)
  • Lowest Damage – 28 meters range or further (same range)

3. HG 40: The overall accuracy was low and the damage was a little weak compared to other SMGs. Other then that players love to use this SMG. Here are both stats:

Old Stats

  • Highest Damage – 25 damage at 0-10 meters range
  • Second Highest – 23 damage at 10-24 meters range
  • Lowest Damage – 17 damage at 24 meters range or further

New Stats

  • Highest Damage – 26 damage at 0-10 meters range
  • Second Highest – 24 damage at 10-15 meters range
  • Third Highest – 20 damage at 15-25 meters range or further
  • Lowest Damage – 17 damage at 25 meters range or further

4. QXR: It was always lacking in terms of long-range fights, so developers made various changes to make it more versatile. Also, the recoil has been improved.

  • Highest Damage – 0-8 meters range (same as original)
  • Second Highest – 8-15 meters range (increased range)
  • Third Highest – 15-25 meters range (increased range)
  • Lowest Damage – 25 meters range or further (increased range from 17m to 25m)

5. Type 25: The Stopping Power Reload attachment, which is too powerful for the gun for veteran players only, and now changes have made it playable for new players also.

  • Highest Damage – 0-10 meters range (increased range)
  • Second Highest – 10-17 meters range (increased range)
  • Third Highest – 17-25 meters range (decreased range)
  • Lowest Damage – 25 meters range or further (decreased range from 30m to 25m)

Also, The ADS speed has been increased (faster, not slower) and the bullet trajectory is more predictable. Some other buffs and nerfs are coming as well for the Type 25:

  • Increased the basic bullet spread (base weapon)
  • Light Barrel (short)
    • Increased bullet spread
    • Decreased ADS speed
  • Stopping Power Reload (mag)
    • Increased spread
    • Decreased the negative effects of reload speed

6. HBRa3: It only lacked in terms of its poor accuracy, but after the weapon change it will be improved. The ADS speed has been increased, horizontal recoil has been decreased, and an increase in bullet spread. Also, this weapon does more damage at longer ranges since it now deals the same amount of damage at 25 meters that it used to do it at 35 meters.

  • Highest Damage – 0-13 meters range (increased range)
  • Second Highest – 13-25 meters range (consolidated range)
  • Lowest Damage – 25 meters range or further (decreased range from 35m to 25m

7. BK57: Its accuracy rapidly decreases after a couple of shots and makes it harder to control. The ranges for this BK57 are being tweaked a bit too:

  • Second Highest – 18-30 meters range (both increased and decreased range)
  • Lowest Damage – 30 meters range or further (decreased range from 35m to 30m)

  • Elite Foregrip
    • Decreased movement speed penalty (buff)
    • Helps push the weapon from close range to medium range
  • ADS Speed Improved
  • Optimized horizontal recoil, which increases bullet spread

8. KN-44: It is always deemed as one the the best go to weapon in the game and always got a positive feedback from players.

  • Highest Damage – 0-20 meters range (same range)
  • Second Highest – 20-33 meters range (decreased range)

  • ADS speed increased (nerf – takes longer to ADS)
  • Accuracy enhanced
