Call of Duty: Warzone devs are planning to rebalance the CR-56 AMAX

A new Call of Duty: Warzone update has arrived, and while its content isn’t particularly earth shattering, its teases for future weapon tweaks are.

The update, which was released earlier today (April 28), mainly addresses problems with the Hunt for Adler intel missions that are scheduled to end today. Many users reported their progress wasn’t tracking during games and that intel contracts kept spawning outside of the map. These bugs have been fixed, according to Raven Software, and considerations for extending the limited-time event are being made.

The rest of the update focuses on minor bug fixes, including reducing the sizes of the first and second circles in Verdansk Resurgence. In addition to that, end-of-game open mics have finally been switched off for Resurgence games, meaning you don’t have to listen to someone shouting obscenities at you when you inevitably clutch in the final circle.

While you can get into the nitty gritty of the update by reading the patch notes below, we’re interested in the teased nerfs. Over the last week or so, our best Warzone guns guide has received a hell of a lot of changes. With guns like the CR-56 AMAX, FARA 83, and the LC10 dominating the meta at the moment, it’ll come as no surprise to hear that Raven already has a balancing update in the works.

This future update will target the AMAX, the FARA, and the Bulldog specifically, meaning you’ll need to tune your loadouts in the near future. Raven is also planning on changing the ADS firing speed on Cold War attachments.

In short, we expect these guns to be nerfed into the ground, so start grinding some other guns in Verdansk. Streamers have been playing with a variety of weapons this week, including the AK74U and the Krig 6, so give our best loadouts a whirl when you next drop into Verdansk.
