An update for Call of Duty: War­zone has made its rounds, fea­tur­ing changes to weapons, attach­ments and more. Pos­si­bly the most impor­tant adjust­ment is to the FFAR. It received a nerf sim­ply because it was per­form­ing far too well overall.

Accord­ing to the patch notes released by Raven Soft­ware, the FFAR’s aim-down-sight speed has been decreased, which should help address the issue. The stu­dio went on to explain the changes say­ing, “The FFAR’s whole­sale effi­ca­cy has it edg­ing out SMGs at ranges we’re not sat­is­fied with.”

The FFAR should be effec­tive at mid-range, but some­what dif­fi­cult to win in close-up encoun­ters. “We are bring­ing the FFAR a bit more in line with what you might expect from an AR–damage and range at the cost of han­dling,” Raven said.

Addi­tion­al­ly, the Cold War Tac­ti­cal Rifle Char­lie also saw an adjust­ment, get­ting an increase in recoil strength. “Burst weapons ride a fine line between inef­fi­cient and oppres­sive. The intent of this change is to main­tain the weapon’s iden­ti­ty of being a pow­er­house while mak­ing it a bit more dif­fi­cult to wield,” the stu­dio said.

Out­side of the weapons changes, Raven also plen­ty of bugs asso­ci­at­ed with attach­ments, and a glitch with a camo chal­lenge for the R1 Shad­owhunter crossbow.

Warzone April 6 Patch Notes:

GENERAL

  • The Camo Chal­lenges for the “R1 Shad­owhunter” now appear cor­rect­ly for the Geo­met­ric, Flo­ra, and Sci­ence Camo Categories.

WEAPONS

  • Cold War Tac­ti­cal Rifle Charlie
    • Recoil strength has been increased.
    • Burst weapons ride a fine line between inef­fi­cient and oppres­sive. The intent of this change is to main­tain the weapon’s iden­ti­ty of being a pow­er­house while mak­ing it a bit more dif­fi­cult to wield. Right now we feel it is too easy to stay on tar­get giv­en how lethal it is. We will con­tin­ue to mon­i­tor the per­for­mance of the Tac­ti­cal Rifle Char­lie and make addi­tion­al changes if necessary.
  • FFAR 1
    • ADS speed has been decreased.
    • The FFAR is a jack of all trades. It has the dam­age pro­file and range of an AR as well as the fire rate of an SMG. The FFAR’s whole­sale effi­ca­cy has it edg­ing out SMGs at ranges we’re not sat­is­fied with. Ide­al­ly, the FFAR ful­fills the role of a mid-range dom­i­na­tor while falling prey to weapons that excel in short-range engage­ments. We are bring­ing the FFAR a bit more in line with what you might expect from an AR—damage and range at the cost of handling.

ATTACHMENTS

  • Rear Grip attach­ments that showed ADS speed pros should now prop­er­ly increase ADS speed.
  • Fixed a bug with the Groza where the 16.5” CMV Mil-Spec bar­rel would bypass dam­age falloff.
  • Fixed a bug with the Ember Sight­ing Point where the XM4 and AK-47 had their ADS speed increased rather than decreased.
  • Fixed a bug with the Sal­vo Fast Mag where the FFAR 1 and M16 were not hav­ing their ADS speed decreased.
  • The Pel­ing­ton 703 Wrapped Sup­pres­sor effects should now be prop­er­ly rep­re­sent­ed in the stat bar.
