Warzone Season 4 Reloaded Update – Weapon Changes

New Warzone patch notes, explained.

In addition to the Rebirth Island Zombies mode, Titanium Trials, and Terminator skins, the Season 4 Reloaded update for Call of Duty: Warzone also implements adjustments to various weapons. Assault Rifles, Submachine Guns, and other weapons from different classes have received serious nerfs and buffs to their profile. Here's a simplified version of the most recent Warzone mid-season patch notes.

All Weapon 'Buffs' in Call of Duty Warzone Season 4 Reloaded

This update mainly nerfs various Vanguard Assault Rifles that have been dominating Warzone Pacific for a while now. However, there are other weapons from this class that are getting a significant buff. This update aims to add guns like the Kilo, M13, and Krig 6 back into action.

All Weapon 'Nerfs' in Call of Duty Warzone Season 4 Reloaded

AR nerfs

As mentioned, Vanguard Assault Rifles have been meta and top-tier weapons for a long time. To shake things up, the developers have reduced the recoil control for the following guns alongside other adjustments:

  • BAR (VG)
  • STG44 (VG)
  • Cooper Carbine (VG)
  • NZ-41 (VG)
  • KG M40 (VG)

SMG nerfs

Maximum damage, minimum damage, and location multipliers for the following Submachine Guns have been tweaked:

  • Armaguerra 43 (VG)
  • H4 Blixen (VG)
  • Marco 5 (VG)

Other weapon nerfs

Other than the aforementioned weapons, the following two guns have also received a significant nerf:

  • Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle (VG)
  • Whitley (VG)

Additionally, the melee lunge distance for Pistols has been decreased from 1.83 down to 1.52 meters. This change tries to fix the broken mechanic that allowed players to lock onto opponents from afar while performing a melee.
