Warzone August 3 patch notes leave Kilo 141, KG M40 nerfed

Earlier this week, Raven Software rolled out a new update and set of patch notes to Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4. The update tweaks a bit the changes that were made in Season 4 Reloaded, which buffed and nerfed a lot. of weapons. In particular, the developers improved several Modern Warfare weapons, sparking a mini-renaissance in Warzone. Players have been flocking to those older weapons in waves, resulting in Vanguard weapons not being used as often.

In the August 3 update, Raven made some changes to try to correct this imbalance in the metagame. While Modern Warfare’s weapons are still going strong, the developers want to make sure they don’t dominate the metagame. Some Vanguard weapons have also been buffed to further balance the meta. However, the Vanguard weapons that were also popular in the meta were also nerfed.

Below, fans can see the full list of patch notes for the most recent update in Warzone. They can also visit raven website to see how the changes compare to Season 4 Reloaded.
