As the release of Season 3 of Warzone 2 approaches, there is a divide amongst the gaming community. Some players believe that the developers will buff sniper rifles, allowing them to one-shot kill enemies again. This has caused a split amongst the community, with some players in favour of the buff and others against it.
The developers tested one-shot kill snipers during the St. Patricks Day event, but the powerful weapon was removed after only one week. In the early Season 3 blog, the developers stated that patch notes will include balancing updates, such as a crucial change to sniper rifles.
This has led to a debate on Reddit, with WZ1 players grimacing at the thought of going up against one-shot snipers, such as the Kar98k and Swiss. Some players are in favour of the buff, arguing that heavy snipers should be one shot and marksman rifles should be two shot, in order to counter an unbalanced meta.
It remains to be seen if the developers will buff sniper rifles in Season 3, and if they do, how much the meta will shift. This is sure to be an interesting development for the Warzone 2 community, and one that will be closely watched.
