Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Fans Divided Over Upcoming Buff

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is buffing snipers in a future update and fans are divided about it. Last week, Treyarch released the latest COD via PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC, and already a weapons hierarchy is forming. And right now, depending on who you ask, snipers are either in desperate need of a buff, while others think they are OP as is. That said, apparently, Treyarch agrees with those that believe the former, because according to a designer on the game, they are getting a buff in a future update.

Taking to Twitter, game designer on Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Tony Flame, cheekily revealed that snipers are getting a buff. Flame didn't go into any details or provide any release window for the buff, but the tease was enough to send some fans into a frenzy of disagreement.

The first comment in the replies section with over 100 likes complains that snipers are already over-powered as is. And then the first reply to this reply, with nearly 300 likes, suggests this is an absurd claim.

As you can see, no matter what Treyarch does, some players aren't going to be happy. That said, given how prominent sniping has been in Call of Duty over the years, it makes sense Treyarch is looking to give them, or at least some of them, a buff. However, for now, it remains a mystery what this buff will be and whether or not it will make a tangible difference.
