Warzone Players Feel Snipers Aren’t Meta in Caldera

It appears Warzone players looking to use snipers in Caldera are giving up and adapting to the new meta.

It has been over a month since the Pacific update went live in Warzone. The game took a step in a new direction and introduced plenty of content and a brand new map for players to enjoy.

Now that the fans have had time to adjust to the changes, many Warzone Pacific players are finding Caldera boring.

With that said, many players also have concerns about the sniper rifles and their lack of presence in matches as of late.

Sniper Rifles Not in Much Use In Caldera as Warzone Players Replace Them With New Meta Weapons

Sniping has been an essential aspect of every Call of Duty title. But it seems that the players are finding it ineffective due to the varying terrain in Caldera.

With the integration of Vanguard and Warzone, the battle royale increased its weapon arsenal significantly. As a result, Warzone players were complaining that it’s almost impossible to keep up with the weapons meta.

Reddit user ‘Twichycat‘ took to Warzone’s subreddit to share their experience while playing on the new map. The player stated that they are engaging in mid to close-range battles more often and seldom die to snipers in Caldera.

Many in the community chimed in with their experience as well and feel that sniping aggressively has gone downhill.

“I defiantly use the terrain a lot more and try to avoid buildings. Sniping has taken a back seat as I feel it is not worth it anymore. I plan my path more from cover to cover and think every bush is going to kill me,” said Reddit user ‘Getout22‘.

This is a very interesting topic. I play warzone every day a I find that the sniping is dropping despite the constant deaths in caldera. I know I won't stop sniping for a single second. Thanks for the info.
