MW3 Fans Cry Out for Second SMG Buff
It’s been exactly 4 months since Modern Warfare 3 was released and there are already rumblings in the Call of Duty fan base regarding the game balancing. Fans are calling for a second buff to the SMG class of weapons, which were buffed right after the game was released to make them more attractive.
The SMGs started out incredibly weak when compared to the other weapons. The weapons were far inferior when it came to range and accuracy and they offered little damage against enemies at medium-long range. A buff was quickly released after the game was released to improve the damage and accuracy of the SMGs but it still wasn’t enough to make them attractive to many players.
The cries of a second buff to the SMGs have been very vocal and have been met with both criticism and praise from gamers. On one hand, many feel that the weapons should be buffed to make them more effective and thus make them more attractive. On the other hand, others feel that the buff would only upset the current game balance and would lead to further disparities between SMG and rifle users.
What’s interesting is that the MW3 developers, Infinity Ward, have yet to comment on the matter. Many thought that a statement would have been forthcoming after the first buff to the SMG class, but nothing has been heard.
Whether Infinity Ward will heed to the cries for a second buff to the SMG class is yet to be seen. In the meantime, fans are continuing to make their voices heard and it will be interesting to see how the developer responds to their calls.
