Warzone players are calling for sniper nerfs as “ridiculous” Kar98k and Swiss K31 still dominate

Warzone players have been calling for nerfs to long-range weapons as the battle royale’s “ridiculous” sniper meta continues, led by the ever-popular Kar98k and Swiss K31.

While Warzone’s weapon variety means that a variety of weapons have been meta at some point, some weapons have remained consistently popular in battle royale since their introduction.

They are the Kar98k, Modern Warfare’s marksman rifle, and the Swiss K31, which was dropped as post-launch content in Black Ops Cold War. Both snipers are forgiving, fast, and perfect for taking out enemies across the map.

However, since they’re still among the most used weapons ever since Season 2 Reloaded attempted to shake up the meta, some players are calling for Raven Snipers to introduce blanket nerfs to balance them out.

The Swiss and Kar98k have long dominated Warzone.

Player ‘meme-viewerno‘ said on April 16 that they were “tired” of the ongoing sniper meta and suggested Raven nerfs to the most prominent weapons in the category to push players towards other classes and playstyles.

“Whether it’s Rebirth or Caldera, if you don’t use a sniper like a Kar98k or a Swiss, you’re at a severe disadvantage,” they said.

“It’s extremely difficult to win a 1v1 when they have a sniper and you don’t because it’s so OP to only be able to get a headshot. You don’t even have to be very accurate, it’s super forgiving. Before everyone says just do one yourself, I did it and it’s extremely repetitive.”

They argued that not only can snipers headshot enemies at any distance, but they also engage incredibly quickly and have handling that doesn’t suit their long-range profile.

They finished: “I’m okay with snipers like HDR and AX-50 because they are balanced with poor mobility, but these sniper rifles need to be checked, it’s ridiculous.”

With over 100 upvotes, many other players agreed with the OP’s comments. Although initially popular in Warzone, traditional snipers like HDR and AX-50 have fallen away because they are much slower and more cumbersome than marksman rifles.

It’s up to Raven to make changes, and with Kar98k and Swiss having been so popular for so long, it seems like an idea the player base is gravitating towards.
