Call of Duty: Warzone patch is making major balance changes

The latest patch for Season 4 of Warzone is bringing a bunch of major changes to the game's weapons and Time to Kill in order to readdress balance - along with a new limited-time event named Ground Fall, Verdansk Resurgence Mini mode, a dirt bike, and LGBTQIA+ Pride flag Calling Cards.

Those new features are out now, but the new rebalance is due in a future update, which Raven Software say is due to some weapons being more lethal than others despite being in the same class. "We feel a reduction in the efficacy of those outliers is necessary. We expect these changes will bring the average Time to Kill up by approximately 60 to 100 milliseconds." This should make a significant difference given Warzone's low TTK compared to other Battle Royales.

It plans to tweak 15 weapons, with the CR-56 AMAX and the Streetsweeper shotgun getting nerfed quite significantly - max range will be decreased by 24%, and the second damage range will drop 18% - move speed will also be dropped slightly. The Streetsweeper is a popular weapon with one of the best K/D ratios, so this should significantly alter the game for many and force it to be used in more appropriate situations.
