Diamatti Damage Nerf

Dual Wield (Akimbo) Damage Nerf

January 13 Weapon Balance Effects On Meta

Cold War DMR Weapons Brought In Line

Mostly A Bug Fix

The nerfs made significant impact to the recoil & damage of the Cold War Meta DMR weapons. They will no longer be the all-range shredding machines they used to be, but thanks to their fast fire rate and semi-decent handling despite nerfs, they are still capable weapons in the right hands. However, it is very likely that the meta will move on to other weapons with similar performance like Kar98k.

DMR 14 - Still Viable Post Nerf?

DMR 14 lost some advantage over long range, but is still viable up to medium or even long range if the player knows how to handle its recoil kick after firing the first round. It will now be difficult to challenge full snipers without skill, but thanks to its fast fire rate DMR 14 is still potent up as a close up/ mid range multipurpose gun.

Type 63 - Still Viable Post Nerf?

Type 63 received nerf in the damage & recoil attachment area, but was relatively untouched in its base range recoil unlike DMR 14. Type 63 was originally a mid/ close range oriented weapon based on its stats to begin with, and thanks to its relative fast rate of fire we feel that its pretty much the same viable weapons as before.

Diamatti Akimbo - Still Viable Post Nerf?

Diamatti & Akimbo kind of lost some damage in this nerf, requiring another burst to down targets. However, as there are currently no better alternatives to self-defense secondary weapons without the use of Amped Perk, Diamatti is still one of the best secondary to choose from. We would recommend that players who use the Diamatti for self defense ditch the Dual Wield (Akimbo) and use the sights for better consistency.
