Studio design director at Treyarch, David Vonderhaar, has taken it to Reddit to explain the many tweaks and fine-tuning in the game. He was quoted in saying, “We (generally) define under or over-powered based on an average for that class or category of item. In all cases, we have a ‘design target’ and ‘design goals’ for where something should be performing, and we manage into that. We are constantly trying to track in the Weapons, Attachments, Specialist Weapons & Abilities, Perks, Scorestreaks and anything else from those gameplay systems into those design targets, and do so using the unique properties and personality of that weapon/character/ability/feature.”

The “Call of Duty: Black Ops 3” fix is now available on consoles including PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
