Here's everything you need to know about Warzone as of Dec. 19.

Call of Duty: Warzone December 19 Patch Notes

Below, we've broken up the patch notes according to its major sections. This includes gameplay, bug fixes, and weapon and attachment rebalances.

COD Warzone December 19 Weapon Rebalances

"When considering these changes in a vacuum, they may seem rather peculiar. Due to the nature of Vanguard Weapons, tuning is much less straightforward," developers wrote, "Our goal is for these Weapons to be just as viable with one of these Attachments as it can be with all of them. This allows the Weapons to support all sorts of playstyles and gameplay preferences rather than solely ‘Rapid Fire’."

The only weapon affected by this patch is the Vanguard version of the Cooper Carbine assault rifle. It has received the following adjustments, which have gone live with the last update:

  • Maximum Damage decreased to 24, down from 25
  • Minimum Damage decreased to 19, down from 20
  • ADS Speed decreased by 5.3%

"The Cooper Carbine (VG) is still going to be effective but is now more likely to lose fights to Submachine Guns in short-range engagements." Developers noted.
