Call Of Duty: Warzone April 6th Patch Notes

A new hotfix is out now in Warzone that finally nerfs the FFAR and AUG. This update also includes some changes to various attachments.

The full April 6th patch notes for Warzone can be seen down below:

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.

At the time of this writing, Warzone players are still testing out these changes and how they could affect the game’s current meta. YouTuber TheXclusiveAce is one of those players, posting this on Twitter:

(Note: The image above is the base AUG recoil with no attachments)

It seems that, at the very least, the AUG has received a pretty sizable nerf and the FFAR has seen some noticeable changes.

However, you have to wonder if these changes are enough to pivot the burst rifle meta in another direction or if players will just set their sights on using the M16 instead.
