Despite the recent announcement of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and this weekend's upcoming CDL Championship Weekend, Call of Duty fans are focused on a mysterious and unannounced change to the MP5.
The MP5 SMG is one of the best weapons in Warzone. Low recoil, high damage, and decent range have made the MP5 a consistently solid weapon choice. Thus, many players are reacting to an unspecified change that seems to have been made to it in the recent Modern Warfare and Warzone Season 5: Reloaded update.
In the above tweet, Atlanta Faze's analyst, Easy Mac, provides a picture of how the gun looks different when aiming down the sights after the update. Although miniscule, it does seem like an odd change to make so close to Championship Weekend.
Skrapz, professional player of the London Royal Ravens, initially noticed the change and mentioned that the MP5 is now "bouncing all over the gaff." Other players are experiencing more major changes to the MP5. Many are claiming that the SMG now has much more intense recoil and puts out less damage.
Whatever happened with the MP5, it appears it won't be fixed until after the CDL Championship Weekend.
Although Infinity Ward hasn't commented on this dilemma, pro player Seth "Scump" Abner of the Chicago Huntsmen confirms that a change has been made, and that it won't be reverted this week.
The Call of Duty League Championship Weekend kicks off Saturday, Aug. 29.
