Test shows Modern Warfare weapon recoil is “completely broken”

Every Call of Duty release relies on gunplay as a core component of its gameplay, but players have noticed major issues with some of Modern Warfare’s recoil systems.

The latest Call of Duty title has seen the return of many of the series most iconic weapons, such as the MP5 and MP7, but players have identified some major problems with their recoil patterns.

Some of the weapon’s recoil patterns appear to be very inconsistent depending on if their characters are standing or crouching in-game, compared to previous games in the franchise.

CoD YouTuber, E-Roc, tested out each of the game’s assault rifles and SMGs to highlight some of the bizarre differences that could be seen with the recoil patterns when crouched compared to standing.

Typically, a weapon’s recoil is reduced when a player crouches, and reduced further when prone, but in Modern Warfare, it appears that the opposite is in fact true.

The YouTuber began to work his way through each of the weapons and demonstrated that some of the weapons had much more recoil when players were crouched, than when standing.

E-Roc claimed that overall the recoil patterns in the game were “completely broken” and that it was likely not intended for Modern Warfare players to have this level of recoil when crouched.

In previous CoD titles, crouching or going prone would reduce the amount of kick that weapons would give off, sometimes significantly, and make the weapon more easily controlled.

However, that is not the case for Modern Warfare it seems, and players are calling for changes to be made so that the recoil system is more in line with the previous games.

As of now, it is unknown if Infinity Ward intended for the recoil to differ with each weapon depending on stance, or if this is a glitch that they will look to fix in the near future.

This is not the first time players have noticed something unusual about the state of popular FPS, as CoD pros have also criticized the game for some of its bizarre spawns.

Best Krig 6 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Krig 6 has slowly been creeping into the meta spotlight after the recent FFAR and M16 nerfs, so find out which attachments you should equip to increase this gun’s lethality. 

This deadly assault rifle delivers excellent precision and deals great damage across all ranges, making it one the most viable assault rifles in the current meta. This full-auto AR boasts excellent weapon control and quick reloads, while its methodical fire rate helps minimize recoil and keeps your shots accurate. 

It may not deal as much damage as the game’s AK-74, but its excellent accuracy more than makes up for that. The Krig 6’s minimal recoil also allows it to excel across Black Op’s Cold War’s larger-scale maps and modes. Whether it will be a meta defining gun when it’s added to Warzone remains to be seen, but it’s more than likely that this gun will likely prove to be a popular pick. 

In order to help you get the most out of the Krig 6, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

The Krig 6 barely has any recoil when kitted out with these attachments.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Krig 6 in Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex
  • Infantry Compensator 
  • 19.7” Ranger
  • SOF Target Designator
  • Foregrip
  • 40 RND
  • Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Raider Stock 

By picking the Gunfighter wildcard, you can equip a total of eight attachments which gives you a great deal of flexibility when it comes to building the perfect loadout. The Millstop Reflex provides the Krig 6 with a clean sight that doesn’t clutter the screen, allowing you to easily spot enemies at a distance. 

Combine this with the 60% reveal distance from the SOF Target Designator and you’ll be able to snap onto the most well-hidden foes. After all, visibility remains a big problem in Black Ops Cold War, so having any attachments that help improve this is huge. 

Next up is the Infantry Compensator and Foregrip which diminish horizontal recoil by 27%, which makes the Krig 6 incredibly accurate. In fact, the recoil on this setup is so minimal that it effectively allows you to beam opponents across all distances. 

Bullet Velocity is also incredibly important in Black Ops Cold War and it is often the reason why the hit detection of certain weapons can feel a little off. After all, being able to quickly drop your foe before they can even react is always going to be beneficial, so the 19.7” Ranger is a must.

The Krig 6 is steadily climbing up the popularity rankings.

Another top pick is the Airborne Elastic Wrap. This incredible attachment increases the Krig 6’s aim down sight time, gives you 90% Flinch Resistance, and allows you to aim while going prone. ADS speed is just as important in Black Ops Cold War as it was in Modern Warfare, particularly for any AR loadouts that want to be competitive against the game’s SMGs. 

Meanwhile, the added 90% Flinch Resistance also keeps your shots accurate even when you take damage. This will often enable you to counter your attackers with high precision shots. The Raider Stock also increases the AR’s Sprint to Fire time and Aim Walking Speed, giving you a great reactionary playstyle that can quickly melt foes in close-quarter firefights. 

While the 50 RND mag attachment offers a great deal of firepower, its reduction in ADS time makes it less optimal for standard multiplayer. As a result, the 40 RND variant has been used instead. The Krig 6 is capable of melting through multiple foes in a few bullets, so the 40 RND mag is more than enough.
