League of Legends
Call of Duty
If you’ve played Call of Duty: Warzone as of late, you can’t help but notice most players’ loadouts consist of the MAC-10 and the DMR-14. Herschel “Guy” Beahm IV, aka “DrDisrespect,” certainly noticed it, and he is not pleased. While streaming Warzone yesterday, DrDisrespect vented his frustration regarding getting killed by the same two weapons repeatedly.
“Have to be honest, this MAC-10 meta is f**king boring,” he ranted on the stream. “I mean, the gunfights are just so pathetic.”
Early in the stream, DrDisrespect and his teammate, Zlaner, talked about how boring the game was to even watch. Zlaner commented that people in his chat will tell him that they’re leaving due to boredom.
DrDisrespect took to Twitter to call for a Warzone “content overhaul.” He also commented that he’d “rather watch Drone racing on ESPN 9.”
Worst Warzone meta to date.
Need a content overhaul.
I'd rather watch Drone racing on ESPN 9.

The Doc almost sounds like he’s crying over sour grapes because he didn’t get his way. Which, to be fair, he does often. However, you have to admit that watching players using the same weapons over and over gets a little tedious.
Of course, Warzone isn’t the first, nor will it be the last, multiplayer game where participants discover a weapon’s success from a tournament and thusly overuse it. This isn’t even unique to the shooter genre. If anyone remembers the first tournament for Mortal Kombat X, then you’ll also remember the over-abundance of Kung Jin. Soon after that, NetherRealm Studios nerfed the character.
Most likely, Infinity Ward and Raven will nerf these weapons as well, but the question remains as to when. Or perhaps the meta will only end when the developers add in a new OP weapon that will create a new annoying meta. It is kind of the circle of life when it comes to these kinds of games.
