Call of Duty: Warzone players have reported their FFAR loadouts appearing less effective in the wake of Warzone Season 2's arrival, with the weapon's aim down sights time feeling longer. Official patch notes for the update name the AUG as the only weapon affected by nerfs.

Prominent Call of Duty players such as the NRG-sponsored Joseph "JoeWo" Wohala and FaZe Clan's Kris "Swagg" Lamberson have complained about the apparent FFAR nerf on Twitter.

Call of Duty YouTuber JGOD conducted testing on the FFAR to verify the changes and found that although the gun itself hasn't been changed, two of its most popular attachments have.

The aim down sight change appears tied to the Salvo 50 Rnd fast mag, which appears to now create major ADS speed penalties. Also nerfed was the Takedown barrel, which appears no longer to increase bullet velocity or help players' strafe speed.

Outside of these tweaks to its attachments, the FFAR remains the powerhouse it was before the patch.
