Call of Duty: Warzone was meant to give the infamous RPG a nerf in its May 19 update but instead, players have started to notice it could have received a buff instead.

Players in Call of Duty: Warzone know the pain of dealing with the rocket launchers as they are capable of exploding vehicles but also when facing one nearby as the damage output is one of the highest in the game.

Here is what we know about the RPG buff in Warzone.

RPG Buff in Call of Duty: Warzone After May 19 Update

With the frustration of players, Warzone developers Infinity Ward wanted to address the issue and claimed that the infamous RPG would be getting a nerf in the update on May 19. However, YouTuber TheXclusiveAce has shown players and fans otherwise.

The YouTuber did find that the update nerfed the weapon in one aspect but greatly increased it in another area. Playing with the RPG post May 19 update, TheXclusiveAce noticed that it was doing better than before.

The changes to the RPG were:

  • Nerf: Maximum damage radius slightly decreased from 10m to 9m
  • Buff: Maximum damage greatly increased from 150 to 250
  • Buff: Minimum damage slightly increased from 30 to 50

The new buff has enabled players to eliminate other players who have full armor and health, making it an unfair weapon in the game. The YouTuber also commented that the update makes no sense because pre-update, a one-hit kill was not possible unless it was a direct hit on the opposition player.

Whether the buff was an accident or it was to recreate it's real-life counter-part, Call of Duty: Warzone developers are yet to comment on the latest findings and update.
