A new Call of Duty: Warzone update went live this morning, offering changes to multiple meta weapons and fixing bugs along the way.

The Krig 6, FARA 83, and OTs 9 have all been nerfed. All three guns have been popular of late, marking themselves as mainstays in loadouts for players across the world. Raven Software is attempting to bring them in line with other guns with specific tweaks.

The Krig, for example, has had its recoil increased, the FARA 83 has had its maximum and minimum damage decreased while increasing its damage multipliers, and the OTs 9 has had several changes to better reward accuracy with headshots.

A few attachments have seen changes, too. A couple of tactical rifle barrels have had their fire rates slightly increased, including the Black Ops Cold War M16, to better help them stand up to automatic weapons like assault rifles and light machine guns.

Interestingly, the changes have gone live just hours before the European World Series of Warzone event, which starts this afternoon. Anyone competing in the event will have scant time to get online and practice the new changes before dropping into some big-money games.

The full patch notes can be found here, but the weapon changes can be read below.
