There is a lot of excitement about the new weapons in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone. One rifle shoots easily through thicker walls, and the other weapon ignores the laws of physics as well. Infinity Ward has now announced that a patch for the two Super Weapons is in the works.
Since the Season 6 update, the new AS VAL and SPR-R 208 rifles have generated a lot of frustration among “Call of Duty” players. At first it was only known that the AS VAL assault rifle mistakenly fires through several thick walls and damage reduction is completely ignored. But there is also a bug in the DMR SP-R 208 which turns the rifle into a super weapon, as reported by Gamerant.
With the right equipment, the SP-R 208 shoots like a laser
If players use the SP-R 208 with .338 Lapua Mag 5-R magazines, the rifle transforms into a scanning weapon. This means that the fired bullets hit their target without delay. In addition, there is almost no bullet drop (lowering the projectile at high range). When aiming the weapon, players do not have to take into account the movement or distance of a target. If the target is in the reticle, pulling the trigger guarantees a hit. Thanks to the bug, one shot kills with headshots are possible over a distance of approximately 405 meters.
The patch could arrive in the next few days
Both weapons are much more powerful than they should be, the developer now knows that too. Ashton Williams, Senior Communications Manager at Infinity Ward, wrote on Twitter : “We are currently testing a patch with weapon tuning for the AS VAL and the SP-R 208. If there are no unforeseen issues, we will post it as soon as possible. “
There is still no date for the patch’s release, but normally it only takes a few days between the communications manager tweets and the release of a patch. However, not all players wait for the patch. Some players especially liked the SP-R 208’s strike scan and like to hunt with the weapon in “Warzone”. They probably won’t be able to use the Wonder ratchet for a long time.
