As expected, on July 7th 2022, Raven Software decided to nerf the NZ41 and the H4 Blixen. Those two guns have been dominating the meta for few days/weeks and players were complaining.
My thoughts on the nerfs
I’m not expecting those nerfs to truly impact the meta, especially for the H4 Blixen that is really minor. The NZ41 will keep the exact same recoil pattern and time to kill. What is changing is the recoil recovery, so the time after each shot to re-center your screen. Mostly visible after the last shot!
View on this link a quick analysis of the NZ41 recoil recovery i made!
- Recoil Recovery decreased by 20%
- 8mm Klauser 40 Round Mags
- Recoil Control Penalty now increased to -10%
H4 Blixen Nerf
- Lower Torso Damage Multiplier decreased to 1.0, down from 1.
This is a super small change, and should not impact the Blixen a lot. But Marco 5 might truly take the absolute meta crown.
