The BAL-27 is being nerfed on Advanced Warfare Online Multiplayer, the patch is already LIVE on Xbox 360 and it’s on it’s way to update the other systems (Xbox One, PS4, PS3 and PC).
After testing at the shooting range (15m distance) the original BAL-27 which came with the game at the start hit 32/32 (100% accuracy), it basically had no recoil and was like a laser.
NOW when testing on Xbox 360, the recoil is HUGE and shoots up when holding the trigger down. On the new test only 25% of shots hit (8/32).
If you have the BAL and used to hold the trigger down instead of burst firing then you may need a rethink of gun choice, the intention of this patch is clearly to add in some balance as many players were complaining it was over-powered.
Are you pleased with this patch? Which other guns need changing in your opinion?
