Warzone steward Raven Software released a patch Wednesday that targeted many of the game's most maligned weapons with nerfs. They include the DMR 14, the Type 63, the MAC-10, and the dual Diamatti pistols.

The informal patch notes Raven released the day of the update included the following changes:

  • DMR 14 – Reduced headshot damage, increased recoil
  • Type 63 – Reduced headshot damage, increased recoil
  • MAC-10 – Decreased headshot multiplier
  • Dual pistols – Increased hip fire spread, decreased damage range

Raven did not release precise numbers for any of the changes, leaving players to discover for themselves whether or not the nerfs are sufficient. The nerfs apply only to Warzone, leaving Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War's multiplayer balance unchanged.
