Taped Grip, Leather Grip Movement Speed Bugs Fixed in Warzone Season 4
The Taped Grip and Leather Grip attachments' movement speed bugs have been patched in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4.
The fixes went out a bit under the radar, as announced on Twitter by Raven Software senior game designer Tully Ackland on Saturday.
"Taped Grip (and Leather) are now 'as intended,'" Ackland Tweeted. "I know that might come as a disappointment to some, but will own up to the mistake — fostering a healthy skill gap is a goal, but this was pretty insane.
"The primary goal of the attachment tuning was to enable choice when building a load out. 'Some' increased mobility on Taped is still a valuable pick when going for your 'gotta go fast' builds."
