A new update for Call of Duty: War­zone has dropped, and it’s a note wor­thy one. It fix­es a series of bugs and adds the RAAL light machine gun. It also intro­duces a “Look­ing for Par­ty” feature.

This new fea­ture is cur­rent­ly in the beta stage, so it’s sub­ject to change. It allows play­ers to search for a par­ty based on cer­tain para­me­ters, like pre­ferred game modes, par­ty com­mu­ni­ca­tion, and play styles. This makes it eas­i­er to find play­ers you wish to play with.

The RAAL can now be unlocked by com­plet­ing a spe­cial chal­lenge or by pur­chas­ing a blue­print from the store. 

As far as bug fix­es go, the patch address­es issues with the Tem­pered perk and adjusts issues relat­ed to chal­lenges not track­ing prop­er­ly. The update also fixed more annoy­ing issues, like not kick­ing AFK play­ers from Pay­load match­es, as well as a prob­lem that would cause every play­er in the lob­by to be on the same team.
