Pro players ask to nerf SG 553 once more
Following the release of the CS:GO update on March 27th, which fixed the game's stutters with NVIDIA graphics cards, some of the CS:GO professional tweeted Valve once more with the call to nerf Krieg.
Doesn't it feel great spending your entire career being known for precise aim and then they just add a gun with a scope that let's literally anyone just scope with perfect accuracy across the map and negate all skill.— SEMPHIS (@semphisss) March 27, 2020
It is noteworthy that not all professionals share the opinion regarding SG 553 nerf as a necessary option. For example, Alexander "s1mple" Kostylev said in his interview to DBLTAP that rifle does not need any changes, as its difference from AK-47 makes the game more variable.
SG 553 usage become much more widely spread after Valve reduced its price to $2,750in October 2018. The current price is now, which does not prevent the rifle from remaining the most popular weapon on the professional CS:GO scene.
