Call Of Duty Modern Warfare fans have made it clear that they want the 725 shotgun to be nerfed.
Call Of Duty Modern Warfare is a fantastic game with a great single-player campaign that has irked some people with its politics, but away from all that one of the most recent bits of controversy pertaining to its multiplayer is the fact that a vocal assortment of people have made it clear they want the 725 shotgun to be nerfed.
There’s a lot to look forward to with Call Of Duty Modern Warfare according to recent leaks. 38 new maps are supposedly on the horizon, but a vocal community make it seem as if they won’t care until one of the most OP weapons in the game receives the nerf it sorely needs.
And it’s not hard to see why when you understand what all the hoopla is about.
Call Of Duty Modern Warfare fans want Infinity Ward to nerf the 725 shotgun
The 725 shotgun has caused a lot of hysteria amongst the Call Of Duty Modern Warfare community thanks to it supposedly being OP and unplayable against.
If you follow Modern Warfare extensively and are a part of the online community then you will have already witnessed the numerous complaints about it on social media platforms such as Reddit.
One Reddit post has 2.9K comments about the unplayable nature of the 725 with some having likened it to Modern Warfare 2‘s Model 1887 at launch.
People on the same Reddit post claim that the primary issue is that it’s way too effective at ridiculous ranges.
A very small minority have stated that there isn’t an issue with the weapon and that whiners simply need to “git gud,” but most people agree that Infinity Ward needs to downgrade it.
“This is your daily reminder”
As well as on Reddit, the Call Of Duty Modern Warfare fanbase have also made their ill feelings towards the 725 shotgun known on Twitter.
Note to self never put a tactical respawn down on @CallofDuty modern warfare because you have a chance to endlessly spawn under the map and die. And for the love of God nerf or remove the 725 shotgun you shouldn’t be able to use it as a sniper…. #ModernWarfare— WolfieValeo (@WolfieValeo) November 1, 2019
Unfortunately the 725 aka Olympia has ruined Modern Warfare for me. Won’t be playing anymore until that gun gets a nerf which sucks because it’s actually fun when people aren’t sniping you from long range with a shotgun.— Chad Schlesky (@chad_schlesky) November 5, 2019
The recent update 1.06 for Call Of Duty Modern Warfare didn’t provide any weapon balances, but you’d imagine Infinity Ward will nerf the 725 in the very near future thanks to the backlash.
