Recently, the Akimbo Double Barrel Shotguns have been king in Warzone, but the new nerf isn’t enough to stop them from being overpowered.
If you’ve not been enjoying Warzone Pacific recently, chances are it’s due to the new weapon meta. Although a number of issues have been cropping up in the Battle Royale lately, none are more frustrating than the Akimbo Shotguns.
In its latest post-holiday updates, Raven Software fixed the invisible Operator glitch that had been in the game for weeks. The developer is also working on stopping Warzone from crashing quite as often.
But in yesterday’s update, players finally got what we were waiting for. And although the Akimbo Double Barrel Shotguns aren’t quite as strong anymore, they’re still dangerously overpowered.
Broken Akimbo Shotguns Continue to Ruin Warzone Pacific
It’s only been a few hours since the nerf and already fans are realizing that the Akimbo Double Barrel Shotguns are still overpowered in Warzone.
It’s clear that Raven Software still wants the shotgun class to have a place in the Warzone meta. However, the developer did attempt to nerf the Double Barrel to make things a little more balanced.

However, Warzone players don’t agree that the weapon is in a good place now. In fact, it seems that the loadout was so good that the nerfs don’t appear to have touched it.
When running the best Akimbo Shotgun class in Warzone, players are still able to one-shot enemies at ridiculous range.
And even with a movement speed nerf, the guns have players moving ridiculously fast in-game. What makes the loadout particularly strong is that it reloads instantly, making deleting enemies easy, even in full squads.
Partner up this class with a Riot Shield on your back and a Stim for speed and it’s absolutely ridiculous. The class is definitely ruining Rebirth Island games even post-nerf, and it’s a menace in Verdansk too.
On top of that, the latest Warzone Pacific update has even more bugs entering the game!
And it seems like audio issues are worse than ever in Warzone right now too.
In this compilation of TimTheTatman clips, it’s extremely visible just how overpowered the Akimbo Double Barrel Shotgun still is.
Meanwhile, players are still calling for a massive plane nerf in Warzone Pacific!
