The April 10 patch for CS:GO has finally brought along the long-awaited nerf to the SG553, better known as the Krieg to CS veterans. The scoped rifle turned out to be way too effective at long-range engagements, forcing Valve's hand. You can find the details of the patch in this article!
Per Valve's official blogpost,the following weapon changes were made:
The developers also made minor adjustments to Inferno, Office, Overpass and Mirage alongside the recently added Scrimmage map called Chlorine.
It wasn't just the Krieg which warranted a nerf: previously, the adjustment to the AWP pretty much guaranteed that this kind of a change was coming, but many forget that the AUG was just as, if not more overpowered at a certain point. With all scoped rifles taking a hit and the different SMG weapons getting various buffs, there's a good chance we will see more varied gunplay in CS:GO in the future.
