If you’ve been playing Call of Duty: Warzone for the past couple of weeks, you’ll know that the DMR 14 has been on a bit of a tear. The weapon, sourced from Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, is dominating in the Battle Royale mode — so much so that it was nerfed yesterday to create a more level playing field. Its headshot damage was reduced while recoil was increased, but that hasn’t done enough to stop it from being Warzone’s go-to weapon.
Reports have been flooding in over the past 24 hours, documented by the Call of Duty Twitter community, detailing how the DMR 14 is still an absolute beast in combat. Players are still able to take down enemies with three quick-fire shots at a decent range, and those damage numbers only increase the closer you get to an opponent.
It was NOT! Here is a brief snapshot of it. Didn’t get a good one at long range, but recoil is fine and damage is still dominant…. pic.twitter.com/ENJhKTuPMU— AverageWarzonePlayerTrying2Ball (@Rob2daP) January 6, 2021
If this lines up with data grabbed on the backend by Raven Software, it looks like the developer will have to deploy yet another update to further nerf the weapon. Yesterday’s patch also addressed the Mac-10 by decreasing its headshot multiplier, but even so, the MP5 is still lying in wait. That used to be the king of close-range tussles, representing a fantastic alternative. Are you still enjoying the DMR 14? Let us know in the comments below.
