Warzone Players Hate The No Recoil Weapons Meta

The newest meta in Warzone is ‘no recoil weapons, and players absolutely hate it.

Warzone, like all FPS games, is all about aim and accuracy. Of course, there are other skills top players need like movement and rotations, but accuracy should be the most important.

However, the latest Warzone meta makes being accurate way too easy. This is because many of the top weapons in the game barely have any recoil.

It’s so bad that many Warzone players have now taken to the game’s subreddit to complain about the current meta.

Zero Recoil Warzone Meta Needs To Change

Warzone player MadDog_8762 posted on the Warzone subreddit to complain about the meta weapons in Warzone right having no recoil. Dozens of players have upvoted this post and agree as well!

This has especially been a major problem since the Season 4 update totally changed how barrels work on Cold War guns. Now, many barrels have recoil reduction stats too.

“Zero recoil weapons dumb-down gunfights by removing a CRITICAL skill of shooters – recoil control.”

I am all for making weapons more real world realistic. Alot of the warzone weapons short of the .50 BMG have little recoil. We are not talking about canons but lots of .556 which have little to no recoil when using buffer tubes it the AR platform. Some AK' and varients use a .762 X 39, 45 which again has little recoil on the Grand scheme of things. So before all these "pro" streamers get butt hurt about being killed more....they should maybe do some firearm and ballistics research.
