A secret buff has reduced recoil on some Cold War optics in Warzone.
An optic is possibly the most important attachment in Warzone, especially for assault rifles. The average combat range is quite long so it’s very important to make sure you can see your targets clearly.
Initially, it looked like optics and scopes just have different zoom levels. However, Raven has recently made a change to how the optics work.
Some sights now reduce recoil on Cold War guns in Warzone too!
Best Recoil Reduction Scope in Warzone
Warzone Season 3 brought a number of stealth changes to weapons. Firstly, the bullet velocity of some sniper rifles has been stealth nerfed, but now players have found that some sights have hidden recoil reduction.
Warzone weapon testing YouTuber JGOD has done some initial tests on the two most popular scopes for Cold War guns in Warzone – the Axial Arms 3x and SUSAT Multizoom. His testing shows that there is in fact some recoil reduction from both scopes now.
Firstly JGOD tested the scopes with the best AR in Warzone right now – the Krig 6. Check out the best Krig 6 loadout in Warzone Season 3 here.
JGOD’s testing revealed that the Axial Arms 3x scope in Warzone reduced vertical recoil by around 20% and the SUSAT Multizoom reduced recoil by around 5%. This is in comparison to using the weapon’s iron sights.
However, both optics are very good options. This is because the SUSAT Multizoom is totally overpowered for another reason.
JGOD also tested these two optics on the Stoner LMG. While the recoil reduction is less for this weapon, it is still noticeable and worth using if you need some extra accuracy in Warzone.
Make sure to change your loadouts to put one of these optics on your mid to long range weapons.

Meanwhile, the past year has been a huge success for Call of Duty. Activision has announced that the Call of Duty development team will triple in size. Also, some new details about COD 2021 have been revealed.
Additionally, many Warzone players are suffering from terrible lag and freezing issues. A reduced recoil optic won’t help you if Warzone keeps stuttering!
Finally, could a Rambo operator be coming to Cold War and Warzone soon? This hint certainly suggests so.
