Warzone devs hints at NZ-41 nerf after it becomes Season 4’s most used weapon

A Raven developer working on Call of Duty: Warzone has hinted that the NZ-41, which is fast becoming a fan-favorite weapon in Season 4, is set for a nerf in the near future.

As is the case with any battle royale, weapons peak and trough in popularity, generally around updates from developers aimed at shaking up the weapon meta.

That was also the case with Warzone Season 4, which brought a variety of buffs and nerfs to the CoD BR weapon pool on June 22nd.

One weapon that received a number of changes through adjustments to its attachments was the NZ-41, a weapon that rose to infamy in Season 3. Changes to their power in the Season 4 update have made them even more popular, comfortably in the top 5 most used Warzone weapons. However, according to a Raven developer, that could soon change.

Warzone Pacific Season 4 delivered tons of exciting new content for players.

Some fans were confused when Season 4 was dropped and, if anything, bolstered the already mighty NZ-41. For example, many of his recoil control attachments have been upgraded to make kicking easier to control.

However, it appears that the changes will be short-lived as a Raven developer commented on June 25th that it came out more powerful than expected. While they haven’t specifically stated that a nerf is on the way, the assumption that it was made too powerful hints at a future nerf.

Tully Auckland, Senior Game Designer at Raven, said: “Agreed, it’s not where I want it to be right now. There are guns that are easy to use, the NZ is not one of them.”

In a second tweet, he said: “New Zealand shouldn’t be included [the easiest weapons to use], I agree. We over-indexed the improvements to make them usable.”

In short, some weapons are meant to be easy to control, but often have weaknesses elsewhere (like low damage) to keep them balanced. In its current form, the NZ-41 is an all-around monster with no tangible weaknesses. So a nerf definitely seems to be there.

If that’s the case, we’ll be the first to break it down for you.
