  • NiKo describes the Krieg as being "OP as f**k".

  • Summit1g and Nitr0 also comment on the scoped rifle.

There has been a lot of talk surrounding the Krieg 552 being overpowered lately. Following the communities request to nerf the weapon, a lot of professional players and streamers have also voiced their opinion on the matter.

Nikola “NiKo” Kovac also seems to be pissed off with the scoped rifle which he described as being “OP as f**k,” revealing what he truly felt about the weapon in a recent AMA session on Instagram stating that

“The fact that you can use it as an AWP in most situations, in some of which it is even more powerful than the AWP itself. And the reason why it pisses me off the most is that it is helping so many players who have a bad aim, and I just hate the feeling that they wouldn’t have killed me in some other situation if there was no Krieg.”

While NiKo refrained from naming any specific player, his statement clearly indicates that there are multiple players that NiKo does not consider to have a good aim. And though his confession was short, it was enough to showcase how frustrated the player was when it came to playing against the weapon in its current state.

Popular streamer Jaryd “summit1g” Lazar also criticised the weapon recently in one of his streams, alongside the in-game leader of Team Liquid Nick “nitr0” Cannella, who found it hard to digest that two Kriegs could be purchased by the T-side in the second round just by getting a plant down.

Valve is certainly testing the patience of the entire community by ignoring a common plea for quite a long time now. With the pros and other personalities also voicing strong opinions against the weapon, how long will the devs wait before taking the necessary action?
