Call of Duty: Vanguard Season Two Update (March 10)

Vanguard players have raised their concerns over the current Sniper Rifles in the game. Complaints such as a slow ADS speed with the Kar98k, 3-Line Rifle, and the Type 99, in particular, were the most prevalent. But now, their calls have been answered

Sledgehammer Games has announced via their updates blog, that Call of Duty: Vanguard Season Two has received another update as of March 10.

Sledgehammer Games explained their reasoning for the changes, stating "Given your feedback and our metrics, we recognized that Sniper Rifles were underperforming across the board. Because of this, we wanted to focus on the strengths and weaknesses of each weapon in this class.”

Although the update saw a buff across many Sniper Rifles, the 3-Line Rifle, in particular, was hit with a big nerf, reducing max damage range from 40m to 15m. Additionally, as a way to balance it out, the 3-Line Rifle will have less weapon sway and flinch intensity to make it easier to hit shots.
