Raven is finally nerfing Stopping Power rounds in the upcoming Warzone Season 3 Reloaded update.
Warzone is a game of skill as you need great aim, movement, and positioning to secure a victory. However, there is an element of luck too.
Finding insanely overpowered items as ground loot, like Stopping Power, gives players a huge advantage. Luckily. it looks like the overpowered Field Upgrade will be getting a nerf in the next update.
While the update hasn’t quite arrived yet, the opening cutscene for Season 3 Reloaded has already been leaked!
The Most Overpowered Item in Warzone?
Weapon balance in Warzone Season 3 is the best that it has ever been and every update seems to make it even better. However, there is one item that totally ruins all sense of balance – Stopping Power.
Stopping Power rounds are a fairly common drop in crates and can be used on basically any gun that fires bullets. Loading them into your gun massively increases the damage and can make the time-to-kill absolutely ridiculous on some weapons.
This is why many Warzone players have been asking for Raven to remove Stopping Power for a long time now. Luckily, a new tweet from the developer hints at a nerf to the Field Upgrade in the upcoming Warzone update.
Warzone Stopping Power Nerf in Season 3 Reloaded
A cryptic tweet of emojis from Raven hints at an upcoming nerf to Stopping Power in Warzone.
While Raven has not said what they will be doing to Stopping Power, a nerf is almost certainly coming. Let’s hope this means both a reduced drop rate as well as a lower increase to damage.
Raven Software has also seemingly confirmed that Stopping Power will not be removed from the game. However, it shouldn’t be a problem if it is balanced correctly.
Let’s also hope that the Warzone Season 3 Reloaded update includes a fix to the biggest problem with Verdansk ’84 too.
Meanwhile, it looks like Warzone cheaters are using the most powerful hacks yet. This is despite developer Raven Software banning over 500,000 hackers so far. Even Stopping Power rounds don’t stand a chance against aimbot and wallhacks.
