After the CR-56 AMAX nerf, the long-standing terror of Warzone has finally been brought down to earth. On May 7 Raven Software released a balance patch that came with a big nerf to the CR-56 AMAX. The nerf is sure to change the landscape as we know it and open up some room for new weapon loadout choices.

Raven Software's answer to the overwhelming power of the AMAX was to drop the gun off one whole damage point. According to developers the object of the nerf was to "widen the selection of viable long-range assault rifle." The nerf isn't drastic so it's very likely that the CR-56 AMAX will still be dominant but it's opened up a lot of room for other options compared to before when players were doing themselves a disservice by not running an AMAX loadout.

After this nerf players are sure to be looking for a new number one amongst the pack.
