Call of Duty Warzone entered Season 2 Reloaded earlier this month. Since the mid-season update, the AUG and the FFAR have together ruled the streets of Verdansk. However, the April 6 patch notes that are out today suggest a dominant makeover.

The April 6 patch notes also addresses some bug fixes in the game. As it has been the norm since Warzone came out last year, after every update, players find new kinds of bugs damaging the game. Sometimes these glitches give an unparallel advantage to players who exploit in-game. One famous example is the stim glitch, which recently marked a return, but Raven Software promptly addressed it.

Call of Duty Warzone April 6 Patch Notes

Raven Software published today’s patch under the March 30th list. Read on to find out the changes to AUG and FFAR, along with more fixes to various attachments.

WEAPONS

  • Cold War Tactical Rifle Charlie
    • Recoil strength has been increased.
      • Burst weapons ride a fine line between inefficient and oppressive. The intent of this change is to maintain the weapon’s identity of being a powerhouse while making it a bit more difficult to wield. Right now we feel it is too easy to stay on target given how lethal it is. We will continue to monitor the performance of the Tactical Rifle Charlie and make additional changes if necessary.
  • FFAR 1
    • ADS speed has been decreased.
      • The FFAR is a jack of all trades. It has the damage profile and range of an AR, as well as the fire rate of an SMG. The FFAR’s wholesale efficacy has it edging out SMGs at ranges we’re not satisfied with. Ideally, the FFAR fulfills the role of a mid-range dominator while falling prey to weapons that excel in short-range engagements. We are bringing the FFAR a bit more in line with what you might expect from an AR—damage and range at the cost of handling.
  • Rear Grip attachments that showed ADS speed pros should now properly increase ADS speed.
  • Fixed a bug with the Groza where the 16.5” CMV Mil-Spec barrel would bypass damage falloff.
  • Bug fix for the Ember Sighting Point where the XM4 and AK-47 had their ADS speed increased rather than decreased.
  • Fixed a bug with the Salvo Fast Mag where the FFAR 1 and M16 were not having their ADS speed decreased.
  • The Pelington 703 Wrapped Suppressor effects should now be properly represented in the stat bar.

Call of Duty Warzone is a free-to-play Battle Royale and is available on Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC.
