Raven Software, one of the lead development studios, has released the notes for an upcoming weapons update heading to Call of Duty (COD): Warzone.

The studio announced the patch heading to the game late on Tuesday, Sept. 14. It's a rather small software update containing nothing more than weapon rebalances for the game. Still, this collection of nerfs and buffs could have the potential to completely knock out some of the more popular weapons players use en masse.

Without further ado, let's get into what Raven has nerfed and buffed as of Sept. 15.
