A particular weapon deals significantly more damage in Call of Duty: Warzone 2 when compared to Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer.
One weapon reportedly deals more damage in Call of Duty: Warzone 2 than in the multiplayer component of Modern Warfare 2. Like 2019’s Modern Warfare and Warzone, both the new Call of Duty games share an app, with Warzone 2 available through the menus of Modern Warfare 2.
Like the rest of the series, gamers have access to a wide variety of guns and pieces of equipment in Call of Duty: Warzone 2 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. These range from a usual selection of assault rifles, SMGs, shotguns, pistols, and more, but some weapons in Modern Warfare 2 are better than others. While balancing so many different weapons can be challenging, a new video shows that a particular gun deals more damage in Warzone 2 when compared to Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer.
As reported by Dexerto, a YouTuber named TrueGameData has shared a video that compares the damage output of the X12 pistol, concluding that it deals around 40% more damage in Warzone 2 than in a multiplayer match of Modern Warfare 2. TrueGameData mentioned going through the patch notes of a recent Call of Duty update and decided to test out how much damage different guns do to enemies. The video shows that the X12 dishes out 41 damage to an opponent’s chest, as compared to 29 in Modern Warfare 2. TrueGameData noticed a similar trend when comparing the X12’s damage output at different ranges, before proceeding to test out some other guns in Call of Duty: Warzone 2.
After trying out some other weapons, including the VEL 46, TAQ-56, and 556 ICARUS, TrueGameData concluded that the damage of these guns was exactly the same across both games. The M4 may be an exception, but TrueGameData was unable to get accurate data due to it being a live match of Warzone 2. Even then, the difference for the M4 was only two points of damage, significantly less than the discrepancy showcased by the X12.
As the other guns do the same amount of damage in both games, it’s unclear if this difference is an intended design choice or simply a bug in Call of Duty: Warzone 2. Activision is constantly releasing updates for the new Call of Duty games, so this issue or glitch may get addressed whenever the next major patch comes out.
Call of Duty: Warzone 2 is out now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
