The MW3 Season 1 Reloaded update brought what could prove to be a game-changing upgrade to Warzone’s overlooked Thermobaric Grenade.
Season 1 Reloaded has just dropped in Warzone, bringing an array of exciting changes that are sure to shake up the gameplay until Season 2 hits the scene. While attention is drawn to the return of The Boys with fresh skins and an LTM, the addition of Rio to the MW3 map pool, and the introduction of new game modes, one hidden gem in the patch notes deserves a closer look.
Tucked away in the extensive list of updates lies a substantial enhancement to one of the game’s most overlooked Lethal Equipment – the Thermobaric Grenade.
The Thermobaric Grenade, a familiar piece of Equipment in the Call of Duty franchise, has always played the role of a potent Molotov Cocktail. Players can throw it, resulting in an explosive impact that leaves behind a fiery residue. Moreover, those caught in the blast will experience increased explosive damage.
Up until Season 1 Reloaded, the Thermobaric Grenade found itself overshadowed by other Lethal Equipment such as the Semtex, Frag Grenades, or Breacher Drones.
However, the tide is turning with the latest update. Buried within the patch notes is a game-changing revelation: the Thermobaric Grenade has received a staggering 200% increase in its minimum explosive damage, skyrocketing from 25 to an impressive 75.
Amidst the patch’s focus on addressing issues with meta weapons like the KATT-AMR and MCW, improving audio, and resolving various gameplay concerns, it’s easy to overlook this significant upgrade to the Thermobaric Grenade.
Players may take some time to catch wind of this hidden buff, so seize the opportunity to gain an edge over your adversaries in both Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone lobbies.
