Warzone Season 4 weapon buffs and nerfs

Every weapon and attachment tweak made during Warzone Season 4

Dang, that’s a lot of balancing. Raven Software has gone to town on Call of Duty: Warzone’s arsenal of weapons for the start of Season 4 with a slew of buffs, nerfs, and tweaks.

Not only are base weapons being targeted, but attachments are too. With all of these changes, and the best MG 82 loadout and the best C58 loadout now in circulation, it’s safe to say the Warzone meta has had a massive shakeup. As expected, the king of the assault rifles, the AMAX, has been hit with yet another nerf. So has the Streetsweeper shotgun, which has been blowing people away in recent weeks.

Some long-forgotten weapons from the Modern Warfare era, such as the FN Scar, the Bizon, and the AUG submachine gun (not to be confused with Black Ops Cold War’s AUG tactical rifle) have all received some buffs – as has the Ballistic Knife that was added last season.

There have also been big changes to weapon attachments, particularly the barrels. These have benefitted a number of Black Ops Cold War guns.

While this is a sizeable weapon tuning update, it seems to be just the beginning, as Raven Software sets out on its mission to increase time to kill across the board and create a more balanced experience.

Here are all the buffs and nerfs to weapons and attachments in Warzone Season 4:
