A few balance changes have been made to Call of Duty: WWII since the last private beta test on consoles.
According to an update from Sledgehammer Games’ co-founder Michael Condrey on Reddit, the currently on-going PC open beta includes several balance tuning updates, including changes to SMGs, the STG44 assault rifle, and the M1A1, 1911, and P-08. Read the full list of changes below:
- We reduced the damage per second and decreased falloff range across all SMGs.
- The STG44 Assault Rifle recoil was nerfed.
- Minor buff to the fire rate of the M1A1, 1911 and P-08.
The open beta is scheduled to end later today, October 2nd. So far, it appears that fans are not too happy with the beta, with the current Steam rating sitting at “Mostly Negative” thanks to almost 30,000 reviews. The reason behind most of these negative reviews appears to be an outbreak of hacking.
Remember, everyone who took part in the beta will receive the Beta Combat Pack at launch, which includes an exclusive helmet, calling card, and emblem.
Call of Duty: WWII officially launches on November 3rd for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
