Warzone AMAX nerf hit servers on Friday.

Raven Software released a new Call of Duty: Warzone update, the update was set live on all of the game’s platforms. It was set to buffer the latest Season 3 Reloaded update.

This new update brought changes to the Solo mode in Warzone, changes to the cargo truck, The Bertha, and brought the usual updates onto weapons with balancing and tuning. 

But one update stands out most of all, the nerf to the CR-56 AMAX. This is the second time the Assault Riffle has been nerfed. As in Raven Software’s eyes, the weapon was still vastly outperforming its counterparts.

The CR-56 AMAX has been one of the best weapons in Warzone following ever since its addition to Warzone. It has continued to be a top pick amongst players since then.

It was already nerfed once at the beginning of Season 3, and now it’s been nerfed again a second time. The weapon would down enemies incredibly quickly with headshots, which led to Raven Software decreasing the headshot multiplier from 1.62 to 1.5. 

According to the developers, the CR-56 AMAX “has continued to display disproportionate levels of dominance over the long-range Assault Rifle space.” It’s something that they have been looking at closely since its addition to Warzone.
