Let’s face it, gamers can be quite passionate when it comes to their games, and anything that messes with that or detracts from their experience, they’ll be sure to let you know about it! This time it has come in a recent patch for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 where the patch was pretty much standard fare. It included things you might find from typical updates such as some small changes, tweaks, and fixes, and one of them was the adjustment to the damage and rate of fire of the AN-94 weapon, ultimately reducing damage and rate of fire.
Considering that the changes aren’t drastic where it completely nerfed the weapon and where the difference is in fractions of a second, one would think that it’s not that big of a deal, right? Well we guess some gamers have felt differently about it and have taken to Twitter to post death threats directed at David Vonderhaar, the design director of the game. Some of the threats are pretty explicit in nature but they were either to tell him to go kill himself, or they’d find him and then kill him, with some being directed at his daughter as well. This isn’t the first time developers have received death threats and we doubt it will be the last, but what do you guys think? Was this outrage deserved or do you think some gamers are just overreacting?
