MW2 and Warzone 2 Season 1 Reloaded update nerfs Bomb Drones, adds XP tokens and perks in DMZ
Raven Software's official blog detailed a list of changes coming to MW2 and Warzone 2, and some of the highlighting points included weapon balancing and the addition of different playlists. Similarly, several equipment, like the Radiation Blocker in DMZ and the Bomb Drone, were tweaked for better gameplay. Items like Plate Carriers, Backpacks, Self Revives, Gas Masks, and Field Upgrades will now have an increased spawn rate in DMZ. Here are some major changes coming to the game with the Season 1: Reloaded update.
Bomb Drones now deal critical damage to players wearing three-plate body armor if they are in the outer radius of the explosion. Earlier, the Bomb Drone was one of the most lethal pieces of equipment in the game, which fetched a sure shot elimination every time. Critical damage brings down the HP, but it's not a direct elimination. However, players need to have all three plates equipped with body armor to survive the Bomb Drone's blast.

XP Tokens added in DMZ
XP Tokens will now be available for use in Warzone 2 DMZ lobby. This means players who do not have Modern Warfare 2 can drop in DMZ to level up weapons quickly. DMZ is full of AI combatants, making it easier for players to unlock and level up guns in the game.
