CoD: Warzone new patch nerfs the Sykov pistols to the ground

Shortly after the Sykov addition in CoD: Warzone, players, have found a way on how to benefit from using them and liquidate every enemy in their encounters. While skill is involved, not everything belongs to it, as the Sykov pistols have obviously been overpowered, and that’s why Raven Software has decided to deal with them today.

The nerf involves tweaks of the powerful attachments that made the pistol somewhat a laser beam. But that’s not all, as there have been numerous nerfs all around. The RC-XD has also been removed from Buy Stations and it’s only available via Containment Monitors.

Even though there are multiple tackles on the game balance, we can agree that the Sykov nerfs are probably the most rigorous ever delivered in Call of Duty’s Battle Royale game, Warzone.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
