News - Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Update Will Change The 725 Shotgun Again

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Update Will Change The 725 Shotgun Again

Following a recent patch that nerfed the gun, Activision is planning another update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to address one of the military shooter's most controversial weapons. In a tweet, multiplayer co-director Joe Cecot said developer Infinity Ward is planning another change for the 725 shotgun that should address how effective the weapon is at a distance.

Specifically, the update will "massage out" instances where the 725 is seemingly too effective at range, Cecot said. As you can see in the video below, the 725 is still very, very effective at a distance, which many have remarked makes the shotgun far too powerful.

The 725 is a break-action shotgun that carries only two rounds. It's also not a standard shotgun. The weapon has a cylindrical choke that keeps the projectile spread tight. This is what makes the 725 effective at long ranges unlike other, more standard shotguns.

In another tweet, Cecot said Infinity Ward is being careful to make sure that whatever changes it plans for the 725 do not impact the "soul" of the weapon. He also confirmed that Infinity Ward has no plans to simply remove the 725 from the game. "No," he said.

The video below shows the 725 killing someone in one shot, from across the map. Cecot said this video shows a "rare" situation where one of the shotgun pellets lands. That being said, Cecot added that there are "changes still to come," presumably for instances like this.

Modern Warfare launched at the end of October, and it generated $600 million in revenue right away. The game is expected to sell as many as 27 million copies this quarter, while it will bring in even more money when the first Battle Pass launches in December.

In other Call of Duty news, the Call of Duty Mobile game is racing up the charts with more than 140 million downloads and $50 million in revenue over its first month.
