The Call of Duty: WWII open beta is now available on PC. This version of the beta includes some big changes, including a nerf to all SMGs.
SMGs were a dominant force in the console beta, so it’s unsurprising to see that they’ve been tweaked to be more balanced. Check out the other changes below:
- We reduced the damage per second and decreased falloff range across all SMGs.
- The STG44 Assault Rifle recoil was nerfed.
- Minor buff to the fire rate of the M1A1, 1911 and P-08.
Condrey also detailed some of the issues that his team is aware of, as well as some fixes that will be rolled out during the PC beta period.
Issues the team is aware of:
- Some players mentioned having trouble accessing the game. Whether this was due to bad connections or blank loading screens, we are working hard to address these issues and improve them as quickly as we can. We appreciate your patience!
- We’ve seen several mid-match crashes during playing that we are actively working to fix.
- We’ve identified some minor rendering issues and are actively working to fix these.
Fixes to be rolled out during the beta period:
- Infinite level loads and time-outs when using shader pre-caching and letter-boxing
- Crash fix on start-up for Windows 8.0
- Fixes to the behavior of the Resolution/Render Resolution/T2X Resolution advanced video options
- Fixes to the T2X Resolution setting not getting preserved after exiting the game
