Call of Duty: War zone guns usually fire directly. If the bullet does not fall where your marking is aimed, it is usually because the impact of the ion bomb falling far enough. As players discovered that many of the 40 Vanguard guns added in the Warzone Pacific update tend to shoot in random directions, thanks to the built-in aiming bloom (aka bullet spread), this principle was thrown at will this week Behind the heads.
Aiming Bloom adds a random chance for the bullet fired by the Vanguard Gun to fall a few inches away from where your crosshair is pointing.Thursday Players start to pay attention To what extent this random distribution of bullets would hinder a fair exchange of fire, and Raven seemed to agree that it was a little too much.in a New theater patch After its deployment on Friday, Raven stated that it “substantially reduced the number of’blooms’ based on all Vanguard weapons.”
Bloom hasn’t completely disappeared, but Raven does plan to completely eliminate it in future updates.
A pre-patched example of random bullet propagation (blooming) resulting in an accurate shot miss.
“This process will take time, because we need to determine enough shortcomings to offset the removal of Bloom, which will vary according to each individual weapon and the type of attachment to which they belong,” the patch notes read. As Raven hinted here, Vanguard guns have the potential to surpass Warzone’s existing arsenal because they allow players to equip 10 accessories at a time without using special privileges.
The accessory slot is like the gold in FPS. Its meta definition is to minimize recoil and maximize damage by using the best combination of grip, scope, butt and barrel. Bloom may have been implemented in Vanguard as a way to offset these optimized builds, with built-in error margins that cannot be upgraded.
As detailed by YouTuber TrueGameData, almost all fully automatic Vanguard guns are affected by flooding to varying degrees. In the pre-patch video embedded below, SMG and assault rifles have the worst spread.
When the Warzone patch went live, I happened to be testing the self-propagation of Vanguard bullets. After restarting my game, I can immediately see the spread of my STG rifle. Now almost every shot is accurate, but when I stand further away from the poor wall where I threw the bullet, there is still a noticeable spread.
Interestingly, this patch does not affect the way Bloom works in the standalone Call of Duty: Vanguard, which means that the same gun will now behave differently in the two games.
