The Heavy Chopper has been temporarily disabled in Call of Duty: Warzone 2 for balancing, Raven Software announced Friday.
As many Warzone 2 can likely attest to, the Heavy Chopper, albeit cool to see in-game, could be really broken at times. Now, it appears Raven is looking to rectify the situation but will need some time to do so.
"The Heavy Chopper has been disabled in Battle Royale while we investigate options to balance this vehicle for late game," the Raven Software Twitter announcement post reads.
As pointed out by many players in recent weeks, the Heavy Chopper has simply been comically strong to use in Warzone 2. Although Warzone 2 introduced two factors that have drastically affected its other vehicles in the game — fuel and the ability to repair vehicle damage — the Heavy Chopper seemingly did not play by the same rules for some reason. With seemingly infinite health and fuel, players could literally hop in the Heavy Chopper early on in the match, wait for late game, and beam any others below of managed to scrap there way to the final circle.
As such, although Raven didn't give an estimate as to when the Heavy Chopper would be back, it certainly makes sense to take it out of the game for now until the proper nerfs are made.
