The second update in as many days for Call of Duty: Warzone just went live, fixing bugs and tweaking several of the game’s new weapons from Vanguard.

The NZ-41, M1912 (formerly known as the M1928), Owen Gun, PPSh-41, Sten, and Type 100 have all received changes. Namely, the Owen Gun and Type 100 received various buffs while the NZ-41, PPSh-41, M1912, and Sten have all seen some nerfs.

Bloom is also being heavily nerfed on Vanguard guns. Bloom, which factors into every weapon’s accuracy in Vanguard, is on Vanguard’s weapons in Warzone too. Raven addressed it in the notes, saying that it won’t exist moving forward, eventually.

“With this update, we have drastically reduced the amount of ‘Bloom’ on all base Vanguard Weapons,” Raven said. “In the future, we will be removing Bloom from Vanguard Weapons entirely. This process will take time, as we will need to determine adequate downsides to counterbalance the removal of Bloom, which will vary based on each individual Weapon and the type of Attachment they are attributed to.”

The other main change was a big-time nerf to the volume of planes in Vanguard Royale. If you could barely hear yourself think in the new mode thanks to constant, loud aircrafts in the skies above Caldera, you weren’t alone. The volume has been toned down.

Other changes in the notes include tweaks to a couple of barrel attachments and some foregrip attachments. The full list of the patch notes for the Dec. 10 update can be found below.
