Call of Duty: Warzone has many, many guns outnumbered by a pair of wooden sticks. Kali Sticks, the melee weapon that powers your secondary slot, at first seems like a neat alternative to the standard Call of Duty knife attack, but these flute punching games are intimidating – a step within their generous 3m range, and a few twists will kill you faster than any machine gun.
Complaints about the unreasonable power of the Kali gangs are nothing new. I see at least one post about How did they beat them? Every time I check out the official subreddit for Warzone, but that’s what makes it so unique – as far as I know, Kali Sticks, as far as I know, have never been downvoted.
They’ve remained relatively unchanged in the game since they were added in June 2020 as part of Warzone Season 4 (not to be confused with Warzone Season 4 in 2021 or Season 4 in 2022).
What makes Kali Sticks so powerful? First, Kali Sticks (like the other melee weapons in Warzone) can have a light locking feature that makes them easy to use. If you’re 3 meters away when starting a group, the Kali Sticks will dash forward like a Halo energy sword and “stick” to the target you’re swinging at. From there, it takes less than a second to kill an enemy with full health. The difference between Kali’s and other melee weapons is that they can swing faster and deal a lot of damage per hit, giving them a huge DPS. Much of Kalis’ damage comes from a single critical hit that usually occurs in the second hit of her combo – if the critical drops, the battle is essentially over.
Being on the receiving end of a barrage of Kali Sticks, in a word, sucks. Being hit by a player dodging those around you within 2 feet is confusing and hard to track down with a gun, especially for console players who can’t increase their field of view for better peripheral vision. Not that staying on target really matters, considering that Kalis will kill you faster than most of the guns in the game.
Kali’s high damage results in a frustrating dynamic as players have to kill a Kali before they get close enough to finish him off, or they pull their pair and make it a constant fight to the death.
The turmoil around Kali Sticks has been quieter than in previous Warzone instances of dominant hoaxes, but frustration is growing since Kalis have proven to be excellent ghost hunters in Warzone. Latest Halloween mode. This is definitely not a big deal like DMR-14 epic nerfing From early 2021. Kalis are a secondary melee weapon after all, and many battles in Warzone take place over the medium and long term. But at close range, a single slippery Kali user can sweep the floor with several fully-equipped operators, and that probably shouldn’t be the case.
Other melee weapons in Warzone, which include a katana, a baseball bat, and a ballistic knife, are seen as new. In most cases, it makes sense to fill your secondary slot with a reliable SMG pistol or sniper rifle that fits your gear. As it stands now, the Kali Sticks stand out as being incredibly powerful and lacking any real confrontation other than Keep Away.
If complaints continue to grow, it’s possible that developer Raven Software will step in with a future update. For all we know, it could be in the works as part of December The protagonist of the first season, which will integrate Vanguard and Warzone and introduce the new Caldera map.
