The Snake Shot pistols have been part of the Warzone meta on multiple occasions throughout the past; however, they are now back and dominating Urzikistan after the latest update.
With Snake Shot ammo combined with the Akimbo attachment, the TYR can deal tons of damage, allowing for easy kills and quick takedowns of enemy squads.
It is a meta that Warzone players have previously called for to be nerfed as soon as possible, and the same is now happening again.
Snake Shots Are Dominating Warzone Lobbies
UPDATE: Call of Duty has now disabled the Snake Shot ammunition for the TYR pistols. This was announced on its CODUpdates account on X.
The Snake Shot pistols have returned to the Warzone meta and are dominating close-range fights . The dual-wielded TYRs can deal devastating damage up close, and you can do little to counter it.
The Snake Shot Akimbo pistols can down fully plated players with just two bullets. Since both shots can be fired simultaneously, this weapon is extremely powerful.
As you can see in the video below, Rated takes out an entire three-person squad and barely takes any damage in the process.
If you are looking to use these pistols, here’s the build for these powerful Akimbo pistols!
When it comes to the player base, the reactions clearly showcase they are not fans of this meta. This one player says if this continues, they won’t play Warzone while it is overpowered.

Meanwhile, this X user provides the same sentiment by stating they will take a break while they wait for a nerf.
Think I’m going to take a good like two week break. 👍🏻— Vadasz (@VadaszTweets) December 15, 2023
Interestingly, Raven Software’s latest weapon balancing post does showcase a nerf to the Akimbo TYR’s damage. However, it appears it forgot to adjust the weapon’s values when combined with the Snake Shot ammunition.
It is unknown whether the developers are on holiday over the Christmas break yet, but Warzone players will be hoping they aren’t, so this gets fixed sooner rather than later. Otherwise, this loadout could dominate over the next few weeks.
TYR Snakeshot Loadout
The TYR Akimbo Snakeshots will likely receive a nerf at some point, similar to the previous iterations of Snake Shot pistols in Warzone.
However, until it does, you can use it by applying the following attachments:
- Barrel: ZIU-16 Heavy Long Barrel
- Laser: Verdant Hook Mounted Laser
- Ammunition: 12.7X55mm Snake Shot
- Rear Grip: Akimbo TYR
- Trigger Action: Ullr’s Fury
