It appears Semtex Grenades are perhaps the weakest they've ever been in the series after the Call of Duty: Warzone 2 Season 1 Reloaded update.

As noted in the patch notes for Season 1 Reloaded, Semtexs were supposed to buffed if anything. According to players on Reddit, however, it appears the sticky, tried-and-true lethals may have secretly received a nerf after the latest update.

On Dec. 18, u/Average_Joes_Gaming took to the r/CODWarzone subreddit to post a clip titled, "Semtex sticks nerfed? Or is this a new Gulag thing?"

In the clip, Average_Joes_Gaming can be seen sticking an enemy in the Gulag with a Semtex Grenade, only for it to just crack their two plates.

"I definitely downed and killed players in the gulag and outside the gulag after sticking them with a Semtex before," u/Evers1338 replied. "This is 100% new."

"Semtexes are really bad in WZ2," u/SemiAutomattik replied, "they don't even finish a downed opponent anymore. Hoping it's a glitch."

In a game where the TTK can be lightning fast against certain guns, it is a bit baffling that a stuck Semtex doesn't finish a downed enemy, let alone take a player out with plates.

Ultimately, it certainly seems as though the devs should check this situation out. At the time of publication, this apparent bug has yet to be added to Raven's Warzone 2 Trello board.
