Call of Duty players woke up to a surprise update download in Modern Warfare 2, Warzone 2, and DMZ today, hoping for something cool to arrive in the FPS franchise.

Unfortunately, Infinity Ward soon released the patch notes to the chagrin of players everywhere, who found out that it was another update focused on bug fixes as opposed to any substantial content changes.

All three modes of the current CoD offering—MW2 multiplayer, Warzone 2 battle royale, and DMZ—had their own bugs to be squashed in this update, the second one deployed since season three began on April 12.

Fans of Ground War will be happy to know, however, that more ammo caches have been added to the Zaya Observatory map, and Gunfight players should now see a reduced number of lasers in loadouts in the two-vs-two mode.

CoD did announce that the return of a popular Warzone 2 mode is coming soon, though. The respawn-based Plunder mode will be making its way into the BR sequel for the first time in the weekly playlist update this week.

Players holding out for new content, like new weapons maps, or balance changes, likely have to buckle in and wait a few more weeks before the midseason “reloaded” update hits the games sometime in the middle of May.
