Call of Duty WW2 Patch Nerfing Quick Scoping, Tuning Other Weapons

by C.J. Keller


The next patch for Call of Duty WW2 is going to address a number of different aspects of the multiplayer portion of the game. Sledgehammer Games has revealed that they will be tuning weapons in the upcoming update, with different tweaks made to ADS (Aiming Down Sights) and sprint.

Probably the biggest tweak coming in the next update is the change to Sniper Rifles in the game. The Kar98k and M1903 are both getting nerfed in the next update. Their ADS transition times are going to take a hit in the update, effectively making quick scoping much harder with these guns.

The changes are for more than just these two popular sniper rifles, however. SMGs, Rifles, LMGs, and a number of other specific weapons will be seeing different tweaks in the update that’s slated to arrive on February 23rd.

You can find the full list of tweaks below to determine whether one of your favorite guns will be getting nerfed in the next update.



  • Buffed base ADS times and buffed ADS in from sprint times (ADS sprint out times match ADS from sprint times


  • Buffed base ADS transition times, but not ADS from sprint times/ADS sprint out times, in an effort to maintain a difference between the SMG and AR class playstyles

Snipers: Kar98k and M1903

  • Nerfed ADS transition times (a slight quickscoping nerf)


  • Buffed base ADS times
    Note: Base ADS times for SMGs are faster than Rifles, and Rifles are faster than LMGs. In other words, there is now more of a distinction between class playstyles.

Specific Weapon Tweaks


  • Buffed recoil in an effort to have a more competitive SMG on par with the PPSh-41

FG 42

  • Nerfed fire rate so that the damage output is more in line with other weapons in its class


  • Buffed recoil in an effort to make it more manageable to shoot down range and give a better contrast to the M1 Garand
  • Nerfed hip spread to match the M1 Garand’s in an effort to decrease the ability to quickly kill opponents at closer ranges


  • Buffed fire rate in an effort to make it a more competitive choice amongst the other rifles (still slightly slower than the Gewehr 43)

Gewehr 43

  • Buffed fire rate in an effort to make it a more competitive choice amongst the other rifles (still slightly faster than M1A1)
  • Buffed recoil (closer to that of M1A1)
  • Buffed clip size to be 12 rounds per clip instead of 10

M30 Luftwaffe Drilling

  • Buffed damage per pellet to be on par with the recent Sawed-Off Shotgun changes so that this shotgun now has a more automatic 2-shot kill and a slightly more forgiving one-shot kill
  • Buffed shotgun damage range, so that it’s now more feasible to finish off an opponent who didn’t die from a rifle bullet
  • Buffed ADS spread to allow for greater accuracy when shooting enemies that are outside of the obvious shotgun range (while ADS)

Toggle Action

  • Buffed clip size to be 8 shots per clip instead of 6 in an effort to allow players to have more success with this weapon
  • Nerfed ADS spread to be on par with other shotguns (besides the M30)
