Raven Officially Makes Some Weapon Balancing Changes To Warzone

Call of Duty: Warzone developer Raven Software has officially nerfed the DMR 14, Type 63, Mac 10, and Dual Pistols with a new update that is available now.

To get into the specifics, both the DMR and Type 63 have increased recoil with reduced headshot damage. The Mac 10, which was introduced at the start of Call of Duty: Warzone and Black Ops Cold War Season 1, features a decreased headshot multiplier.

Finally, we have the Dual Pistols (including the Diamattis). Raven Software has decreased the damage range of the pistols while increasing the hip fire spread.

To reiterate what Raven Software said yesterday, this update is strictly for Call of Duty: Warzone.

Yesterday, Call of Duty: Warzone developer Raven Software announced that they will be changing all of the weapons mentioned above. This was met with a flood of positive responses from the community who have been waiting on an update like this ever since Season 1 began on December 16th.

Unfortunately, first impressions on this update aren’t… great. At the time of this writing, some players are reporting that the DMR 14 is still OP and there’s not much of a noticeable change in the weapon’s viability.

That said, some players are reporting the opposite, saying that the update included “perfect nerfs.”

  1. I bet they haven’t deterred 1 person in the entirety of warzone form using the dmr. Thats how much of a fail this nerf is.

  2. You want to NERF, some thing, NERF, the Riot Shield! It shouldn’t hold up against a direct hit from an RPG! NO WAY!
    AND NERF the C4. It explodes vehicles from long distance away. No way!!!

  3. I know of too many people who stopped playing this game because of the DMR. I have almost made that decision as well. If it takes longer than a few days or even another week… I am out and will spend my time and money elsewhere. Game is not any fun when you die after 3 shots.

  4. Why would you nerf the DMR thats crazy look that os the only gun that level the playing field when it comes against the kar98.The DMR has got me out of situations when the kar98 is involved in a gun fight on warzone,I say you nerf the DMR then nerf the kar98!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. The update did nothing the gun is completely spamable still. Increase the recoil because their is still none. It’s joke quiet pushing cold war weapons on warzone if we want it well buy it but don’t shove it down our throats
