This is a big one.

Season two is upon us in Call of Duty: Warzone and the patch notes for its accompanying massive update have come with it.

The patch notes are extensive, to say the least. The update was delayed by 12 days to fix bugs and adjust the quality of life, and Raven has definitely delivered on a tremendous amount of those if the patch notes are any indication.

The update contains several main features. There are new gameplay features including Nebula V ammo and bombs, decontamination stations, and redeploy balloons. There’s a new vehicle in the bomber plane, new locations including Chemical Factory, new modes like Caldera Clash and Rebirth Reinforced, and a huge list of quality-of-life updates.

The QOL updates are big, including adjustments to Vanguard Royale, loot changes (Dead Silence and stuns removed from ground loot, as an example), UAV changes, and changes to the rotation of public events in-game.

Armored Convoys will now be rolling around Caldera and players will be able to destroy them to earn some sweet loot. The convoys will be shown on the tac map when active, so players can track them down to get some good weaponry and more.

There are a lot of weapon changes, attachment changes, and bug fixes in the massive (don’t say we didn’t warn you) list of patch notes, and they can be read below.

Weapon adjustments

A tip for parsing the following changes: An attribute can increase and be detrimental, or decrease and be beneficial. While considering the below changes, it is recommended to focus on the “down from” or “up from” language.

“Down from” will always indicate a negative effect, while “up from” will always be positive. 

All Vanguard Weapons have had their Ballistics behavior adjusted to more closely match MW and BOCW Weapons.

Assault Rifle

  • Assault Rifle Alpha (VG)
    • ADS Speed decreased to 0.26, down from 0.255
  • C58 (BOCW)
    • Recoil Deviation increased
    • Recoil Magnitude increased
  • Volkssturmgewehr (VG)
    • ADS Speed decreased to 0.265, down from 0.26

Handgun

  • Klauser (VG)
    • Bullet Velocity increased to 390, up from 353
  • Machine Pistol (VG)
    • Mid Damage increased to 16, up from 15
  • Top Break (VG)
    • Bullet Velocity increased to 399, up from 360
    • Max Damage Range increased to 925, up from 800
    • Mid Damage increased to 34, up from 30
    • Min Damage increased to 26, up from 24

Light Machine Gun

  • DP27 (VG)
    • Lower Torso Multiplier decreased to one, down from 1.1
  • Light Machine Gun Charlie (VG)
    • Left Upper Arm Multiplier decreased to one, down from 1.1
    • Lower Torso Multiplier decreased to one, down from 1.1
    • Right Upper Arm Multiplier decreased to one, down from 1.1

Marksman Rifle

  • M1 Garand (VG)
    • Recoil behavior adjusted

Sniper Rifle

  • 3-Line Rifle (VG)
    • ADS Speed increased to 0.517, down from 0.5
    • ADS Movement Speed increased by 27.1 percent
    • Gun Bob decreased
    • Movement Speed increased by 3.7 percent
    • Neck Damage Multiplier increased to 1.6, up from 1.5
  • Gorenko Anti-Tank Rifle (VG)
    • ADS Speed increased to 0.66, up from 0.7
  • Kar98k (VG)
    • ADS Speed decreased to 0.455, down from 0.29

“There are two parts which comprise the Stats of the Kar98k (VG): the Weapon and the Base Optic. In the case of the Kar98k (VG), much of its ADS Speed stats were coming from its Optics. We have decided to take that ADS Speed and spread it out more evenly amongst its Attachments. The end result is a more consistent range of ADS Speeds that will not vary as wildly depending on the Optic alone. When considering the changes made to Optics and other Attachments, this results in a net increase to the Kar98k’s (VG) ADS Speeds. See the Optics section for additional details.”

  • Type 99 (VG)
    • ADS Speed increased to 0.48, up from 0.58
    • Gun Bob decreased

Submachine Gun

  • Submachine Gun Charlie (VG)
    • Maximum Damage Range decreased to 422, down from 473
    • Mid Damage Range decreased to 600, down from 612
  • Type 100 (VG)
    • Gun Kick adjusted
  • Welgun (VG)
    • Maximum Damage Range decreased to 525, down from 581
    • Mid Damage Range decreased to 734, down from 778

Attachments

General

  • Cleared up Pro, Con, and Stat Bar inconsistencies for most Vanguard Attachments.

Ammunition

  • Incendiary (VG)
    • Base Burn Damage decreased to six, down from nine
    • No longer decreases Damage Range by five percent
    • Now decreases Damage by 10 percent (three percent for Sniper Rifles)

“Trading damage now for damage later will have many Players still equipped with Incendiary wondering why they lost an even, or slightly advantaged fight. For now, Incendiary will provide a niche use on specific Weapons where shots are intermittently hit, or fire is unreturned. Players with above average aim will want to find a new type of Ammunition to lock and load.”

  • Lengthened (VG)
    • Bullet Velocity increased by 10 percent, down from 30 percent

“As a result of Lengthened’s monopoly over Bullet Velocity on Vanguard (VG) Attachments, build diversity and Weapon viability has taken a hit. By shifting this Bullet Velocity into a wider variety of Attachments, we are aiming to provide more viable builds and meaningful choice within this category.

Lengthened aside, we have further changes coming to increase diversity in the Ammunition category. These changes will ensure the category fulfills more of a playstyle supplemental role for builds rather than a necessary enabler.

As a whole, Vanguard Weapons have been lacking in Bullet Velocity when compared to the competition. We felt it was necessary to provide more Bullet Velocity to VG Weapons so they could compete more consistently in long-range engagements. To remedy this, we have added Bullet Velocity to most VG Barrels.”
