UPDATE — Call of Duty: Warzone Sees More Weapon Balance Changes In Update

It seems that Raven has decid­ed to roll back the update they released ear­li­er, because of ongo­ing issues they can’t fix. The devel­op­er stat­ed they will resolve the issues and relaunch at a lat­er date.

Anoth­er update is avail­able for Call of Duty: War­zone which makes changes to a num­ber of weapons and attach­ments. Even though the patch notes are not long, the adjust­ments are significant.

Both the C58 and FARA 83 assault rifles have had their recoils increased, while the Nail Gun’s max­i­mum dam­age range has been decreased by 39%.

Raven Soft­ware explained this change, say­ing the Nail Gun was designed to be lethal in close quar­ters, sim­i­lar to a shot­gun. How­ev­er, the max dam­age range was greater than shot­guns, allow­ing play­ers to elim­i­nate their foes at the same speed, or faster, then shot­guns at near­ly twice their effec­tive range. Raven did not spec­i­fy the rea­sons for the assault rifle changes.

Sev­er­al bar­rels are get­ting their recoil con­trol decreased by var­i­ous per­cent­ages. Raven stat­ed this is to reward play­ers for learn­ing how to pro­fi­cient­ly use their weapon.

Your pro­fi­cien­cy with a Weapon should be a jour­ney that is worked toward with an equiv­a­lent pay­off. When we make weapons too effec­tive and too easy to con­trol, there is no jour­ney of mas­tery and we can become dis­in­ter­est­ed with these weapons much quick­er, which we feel can be a dis­ser­vice,” the devel­op­er stated.

Even after these changes, we under­stand that there may still be incred­i­bly effec­tive and easy to con­trol weapons when enough recoil con­trol is applied through attach­ments. We will con­tin­ue to tar­get these Weapons as they arise to ensure that they strike a sat­is­fac­to­ry bal­ance between upside and downside.”
