Warzone: A New Patch Update To Fix Sniper Glint, OP Weapons & More

Call of Duty News

Players are set to receive an array of exciting and much-awaited changes as per the new Warzone patch notes revealed by Raven Software. The update will address the OP weapons issue as well as fix the sniper glint bug and much more.

Raven recently promised that Warzone will be getting some huge changes in the near future. And given the fact that Season 3 is almost here, players thought they would just have to wait till April 21. Fortunately, the devs were kind enough to introduce some of these changes before the upcoming Season. Although these changes do not include everything that the players have been asking for, they do fix some urgent issues.

Undoubtedly, one of the biggest relief to the players in this update is the power balancing for the Sykov. The side-arm was added to the title not just a few days ago but it instantly became the most OP weapon. Its 80 round-auto magazines in akimbo mode proved to be a deadly combination to outmatch. However, after this update, the movement speed with akimbo and 80-round mag attachment will be decreased. Meanwhile, if players equip full-auto and drum mag simultaneously, the total damage of the pistol will be reduced by 25%.

Similarly, the sniper glint bug on some snipers in Modern Warfare has also been solved. On top of that, RC-XD can only be bought from the Containment Monitors now. Another different thing about this update is that you’ll have to download it from your respective platform unlike updates in the past. So if you want to be among the ones who enjoy it first, you should download it as soon as possible.
