Ever since Call of Duty: Warzone came on the scene in 2020, the developers have been trying to balance its weapons as best as possible. A number of Call of Duty: Warzone weapons have been accused of being overpowered, with the developers usually working pretty quick to nerf them as well as buff the weapons that are considered underpowered. The latest gun that's been dominating the Call of Duty: Warzone meta is the FFAR, but as of the latest update, it too has been nerfed.
Raven Software has released a new update for Call of Duty: Warzone that should be rolling out today. One of the most notable changes mentioned in the Call of Duty: Warzone April 6 update patch notes is that it nerfs the FFAR, reducing the weapon's ADS (aim down sights) speed. This FFAR nerf should go a long way in making the weapon less overpowered, but it's possible that more changes will be needed before the developers get it to where they want.
The FFAR nerf may be the most significant change in the Call of Duty: Warzone April 6 update, but it's not the only change that's come to the game. The developers have also fixed the Camo Challenges bug that was plaguing the R1 Shadowhunter crossbow, so players should now be able to complete those without as much trouble.
Some other notable changes in the latest Call of Duty: Warzone update include a nerf for the Black Ops Cold War weapon Tactical Rifle Charlie, which now has more recoil. The developers also fixed various bugs that were causing issues with some of the game's attachments, including Rear Grip attachments that were failing to actually increase ADS speeds when they were supposed to do so.
While this latest update should hopefully make Call of Duty: Warzone a more balanced game, there will certainly be more released in the months ahead to address other guns that are considered over- and under-powered. And while the community appreciates these kinds of updates, many are looking forward to more substantial content updates for the game. Luckily, plenty more Warzone content should be arriving sooner rather than later.
Call of Duty: Warzone's Season 3 of Black Ops Cold War integration is expected to kick off later this month. Activision has yet to reveal exactly what it will entail, but multiple leakers have said that it will see the existing Verdansk map destroyed and replaced with a new 1980s-themed version of the map.
Call of Duty: Warzone is in an interesting place at the moment, as there are reasons to both love and loathe the current state of the game. Season 2 has brought Zombies to the game, with the spreading hordes supposedly building up to the launch of the heavily anticipated nuke event. While this is obviously exciting, and PvE areas like the Vodianoy shipwreck are a breath of fresh air for the game, everything outside of this event is proving to be a lot less fun for one key reason.
The main issue with Call of Duty: Warzone Season 2 is undoubtedly its meta. While the post-DMR nerf era was a lot of fun, as several guns were viable, players quickly found the new strongest guns. Soon enough, everyone flocked to the FFAR and the AUG, with the pairing now dominating inside every Call of Duty: Warzone lobby. Sparking angry posts online, cause reactions from celebrities, and forcing streamers to delete the game entirely, this new meta is quickly becoming a massive talking point with fans.
