Have you ever heard of True Game Data? If so, you are definitely not exotic and you know very well how to assemble a weapon and how good it is. If you don't, you'll learn in this matter why the site is so important to players of Call of Duty, whether about Modern Warfare multiplayer, Cold War or Warzone itself, where the site has become so well known in the last year and is a reference for game professionals.
The site was launched in May 2020, two months after the launch of Call of Duty: Warzone, where Anthony Zachman, a gaming and stats enthusiast, saw an opening for an interesting deal, which until then, no one had done about Warzone , since gun data was and remains to be quite scarce and, Tony merged the useful with the pleasant and brought True Game Data to life.
What has True Game Data already discovered?
After a brief introduction to the site, you are sure to be curious to know why it is so popular with gamers. Well, first of all it's important to say that Anthony is a guy who, solo, tests all the accessories of all the weapons in the game from the beginning. He does time to kill checks (time to kill, TTK), projectile speed, recoil check, damage to each part of enemy's body, damage drops and many other things and posts on his site.
Anthony is a guy who, at the beginning of the game, at the time the Infinity Ward were responsible for the battle royale, discovered a series of nerfs and buffs that weren't published in the patch notes at each update. As I said, there were several situations like that and, the one that drew the most attention was the nerf on KILO 141, which was an extremely used weapon in Warzone and that, if not for True Game Data and JGOD, another YouTuber about CoD, never we would know how much that weapon was nerfed. In the same week, we had more nerf details on your website.
True Game Data also found, in numbers, that some optical lenses from Call of Duty: Warzone helped with recoil control of Modern Warfare weapons. Fact that was never disclosed in any patch note of updates. You can check out the discovery in the video below:
Another outstanding achievement, worthy of applause, by True Game Data is the grand discovery that Warzone's weapons, derived from Modern Warfare, had different statuses from multiplayer for battle royale. With this, it was discovered that many damage profiles, which were tested in multiplayer, were different from what was presented in Warzone and this changed a lot, because weapons that were targets are no longer, and forgotten weapons, became important and changed the meta gaming in an overwhelming way.
Months later, it was also discovered that in addition to the traditional body parts such as the head, chest, stomach and extremities, the neck also has a damage profile, which also changes the target due to the TTK of a particular weapon. See the video below explaining this situation.
How to know the TTK of a weapon in True Game Data?
Step 1: The first step is for you to enter the website of True Game Data and select the option Warzone, in case you want to know the TTK inside the battle royale.
Step 2: After selecting the “Warzone” option, it's time for you to choose which weapon class you want, whether it's assault rifle, submachine gun, snipers etc. Select the one you want and also choose the weapon you want and click on “Next step"
Step 3: In this step, if you wish, you can select an accessory that changes, range, speed to aim the crosshair, etc. Accessories do not change the TTK, only the range.
Step 4: After selecting the weapon, click “Save and generate summary” if you want to get the TTK of your weapon. But, if you want to compare it with any other weapon, you must click on the option “save and another one“where you can do the same process, but with another weapon, so you can compare the TTK.
Remembering that the numbers on the graph, on the left, represent time, in milliseconds, and the numbers below the graph represent distance.
Does TGD have any partnerships with Activision?
Not! Despite having a website dedicated to Activision's game, TGD has nothing to do with it. However, the site has already been highly praised by Raven Software, which is responsible for everything that goes on in Call of Duty: Warzone.
Is TGD the only site specializing in CoD statistics?
We don't have this information, but at the moment we can ensure that the TGD is the most reliable we have, so always prefer it, as we have everything shown in videos of how all the tests are done.
Other channels you can check out is JGOD, which is also a partner of TGD and one of the main CoD streamers today.
