Black Ops Patch: Title Update 10 Brings Nerfed Famas

Black Ops Patch: Title Update 10 Brings Nerfed Famas

Today the latest Black Ops patch: title update 10 was released and as reported last week on the Black Ops blog this newest patch/title update  included nerfing the Famas. Seeing as everyone loves to use that gun in the game the decision to do so might not be that popular, but the changes made doesn’t seem to actually nerf the gun; at least as far as I could tell playing the game today.

Treyarch’s Game Design Director David Vonderhaar confirmed via Twitter that the developers will be changing the Famas to be less appealing to Black Ops players, hopefully making people try out different weapons. The changes to be made to the Famas will be tweaks on ADS raise time; Hip fire accuracy reduction; more gun kick (so less accurate) and slightly slower re-center speed. Vonderhaar also says that fire rate, damage, range and magazine size will not be changed.

From what I could tell aiming down the site (ADS) is a bit slower but with Slight of Hand Pro, it really doesn’t matter all that much. We’ll see how the community reacts to this, if they react at all.

The patch also prepares the game for the upcoming DLC pack Annihilation releasing on June 28. As far as I could tell the patch is only for Xbox 360 and PS3 gamers will probably see the patch on their systems a week prior to the map packs release on that system. Below is the entire update list.
