Call of Duty: WWII Weapon Balance Tweaks Incoming, FG42 Getting Nerfed Again

Call of Duty 2021

Call of Duty: WWII‘s game director, Michael Condrey, has teased an upcoming weapon balance patch, scheduled to be deployed later today (December 21).

After wishing the community a “merry #CODWWII goodnight” via Twitter, Condrey shared details on several weapons that would be getting tweaked.

Here’s the tweet that lists the changes:

If you’re unable to view the tweet, here’s what’s getting tweaked:

– Fire rate buff for MP40, Thompson
– FG42 fire rate nerf & recoil adjustment
– Class wide LMG movement speed buff + recoil buffs for MG15 & Lewis.
– Winchester damage range buffs
– M712 damage nerf

I don’t know about you, but that MP40 buff sure sounds interesting, as I already considered it a great SMG! And that poor FG42! That weapon just can’t seem to get a break.

What do you think of the upcoming weapon balance tweaks? Let us know.
