New Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Game Settings Update Includes Weapon Tuning

Share this:

After one week out in the wild, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is getting its first round of weapon tuning tweaks via the latest Game Settings update.

Among other things, this Friday’s update introduces fixes for Medal and Challenge bugs as well as Out of Bounds exploits. It also makes a few settings changes to Arena CTF.

As for the new weapon tweaks, Studio Design Director David Vonderhaar dropped by Reddit to provide more details. He laid it out simply:

Nerfed

  • Gorgon
  • XR-2
  • Pharo
  • VMP
  • Haymaker

Buffed

  • Razorback
  • HVK-30
  • Dingo
  • KRM-262
  • Argus
  • Locus

More specifically, Vonderhaar explained that “Most of these edits were very small and range from clip sizes, to damage range, to ADS time in/out adjustments, modifications to Quickdraw Bonus(es) for LMGs, recoil reductions.”

“The general philosophy is to tune in small increments either up or down, until we have a really healthy set of data and player opinion to work from,” he says.

There’ll likely be more weapon edits to come, but here’s what we have to work with for now. Any thoughts?
