COD Warzone Update for July 28 Patch Notes:

WEAPONS:

Weapon Adjustments

We’ve seen a positive change in kill metrics since the update to Snipers in Season Three. The intent was to lean into smaller maps favoring the Aggressive Snipers vs Heavier being more suited for the large map. Our data shows that despite a smaller adoption rate (~9.5%) Snipers are still being accredited with a competitive amount of kills vs the more popular class of Weapons. 

However, we’d like to lean into the Weapon to map identity harder, and as such all Snipers are receiving roughly a 35% bonus to their maximum damage range. Lighter rifles, with their damage range builds, will now more reliably cover the typical sight lines found in Rebirth Island and Fortune’s Keep. The goal is to not return to the fastest ADS Snipers being the dominant Weapon in all scenarios – so if things begin to trend that way we will make targeted changes to other statistics of those stand-out Weapons.

PERKS:

Serpentine

  • Damage Reduction decreased to 15%, down from 20% 

We’ve seen a positive adoption of Serpentine in Loadouts, and as such average encounter time has crept up. We’re reducing the bonus damage mitigation so that it’s still a valuable perk, but has less of an impact on average TTK. We’ll be watching this space closely and will make further adjustments as necessary. 

BUG FIXES:

  • Fixed an issue on Fortune’s Keep causing the gas to be more difficult to see than intended.
  • Fixed an issue that allowed Players to exploit Weapon Trade Stations.
  • Fixed an issue causing Deployable Buy Stations to remain active in the gas – allowing  for unintended exploits.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Skål Crusher (VG) to not have a Zombies Mastery Camo section available.
  • Fixed an issue causing incorrect unlock criteria to appear for the “The Vault” Vehicle skin in the Vehicle Customization menu.
  • Fixed collision issues with the AI mercenaries during the Cash Extraction Event on Fortune’s Keep.

That’s about it. If there’s a new update released for Warzone, we’ll be sure to let our readers know.
