A skin that’s a little too advantageous for the player wearing it has been nerfed on Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare 2.
Since the beginning of the month, a skin created controversy within the Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare 2 gaming community. “LA Thieves” is the name of the skin, therefore has just been clearly nerfed par Infinity Ward.
A skin that favored its wearer too much
The LA Thieves skin was controversialsince it was released in the stores of Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare 2. Indeed, it was so dark that inner battles often became impractical against the players who wore it, since they were always well hidden in shaded areas. Although the two most recent Call of Duty games feature especially fights in full sunwhere the skin was not very advantageous, the some concerns he posed in indoor fights were enough to make it problematic for players. While Season 1 revamp launches todayActivision and Infinity Ward have therefore decided to review the skin to make it more visible.
Not the first time we see this kind of skin
Thus the LA Thieves skin now wears a very bright red harnessas his glasses which have a red outline. The skin has therefore very clearly been nerfed to avoid making Call of Duty games too “pay-to-win”. It’s not not the first time the franchise has encountered this kind of problem. Moreover, LA Thieves had quickly been renamed by its detractors “Roze 4.0”in reference to a long line of skins with similar characteristics, including the famous Roze, a completely black skin released in Call of Duty: Warzone.
