This five biggest weapon nerfs in Warzone Season 4 Reloaded list is to break down what guns took the worst hits now that Call of Duty's massive multi-title, mid-season update has arrived.

Raven Software has already gone out and emphasized that this is their largest weapon balance pass in Call of Duty: Warzone history. With a brand-new SMG, 24 guns nerfed, eight buffed, and six receiving a mix of both, here is our list of the five best biggest weapon nerfs in Warzone Season 4 Reloaded.

5 Biggest Weapon Nerfs in Warzone Season 4 Reloaded

5. XM4

Taking hits to its maximum and minimum damage values, as well to its ADS speed and recoil, the XM4 is now much less of a jack-of-all-trades option, and players sticking with it will likely only do so in a sniper support role.

4. Milano 821

The Milano 821 was finally enjoying its rise to stardom... and then it received nerfs to its recoil, maximum damage range, and headshot, upper and lower torso multipliers. While it's likely not going to be what it once was, especially at range, the Milano 821 will probably still be solid.

3. FFAR 1

What was, in my opinion, pretty surprising since its days of glory were already long gone at this point, the FFAR 1 took a nerf to its damage in four different categories—headshot multiplier, maximum damage, minimum damage and maximum damage range.

2. MP5 (BOCW)

With nerfs to its minimum and maximum damage values, the beloved Black Ops Cold War MP5 lost what made it special as it will now take an extra shot to kill at all ranges.

1. Nail Gun

Firmly setting in stone the end of the Nail Gun's reign of terror, the special weapon was nerfed hard in its maximum damage value, as well as its headshot and upper torso multipliers. For those looking for a weapon for Solos and Duos that boasts "great stopping power," a "phenomenal" fire rate and is only "hindered" by an underwhelming magazine capacity, feel free to check out the new OTs 9 SMG.
