Amidst all the drama, Raven Software just released a minor update for Warzone. It fixed several existing bugs that were troubling the players, and patched the C58’s broken recoil pattern with the Kross 4x scope.

It is worth noting that the recoil pattern of every weapon should remain the same regardless of the optics used on them. However, this wasn’t the case with the C58.

Up till the 3x optics, bullets from the C58 first moved upwards and then slightly turned to the left towards the magazine’s end. In contrast, with the Kross 4x scope, the gun’s bullets had almost 0 recoil, which required no skill to master.

Even though the C58 with the Kross 4x scope isn’t a popular load out, many players used the aforementioned bug lately. Hence, it was very important for the developers to patch it as soon as possible.

Call of Duty veteran JGOD showcased the change in C58’s recoil patter after the patch in a recent video.

Despite the latest nerf, the C58 is still a magnificent weapon in Season 4 of Call of Duty Warzone. Its authentic recoil pattern is not tough to control, making it lethal at almost all ranges.

A recent bug in Warzone caused Dead Silence to remain active for the entire match. One only had to use it seconds before the end of pre-match lobby. It comes as no surprise that a majority of players exploited this, and made many sneaky eliminations. Following severe backlash by the community, the Dead Silence bug has been patched quickly.

Raven Software fixed another bug related to the Sentry Turret with the latest update. Apparently, the killstreak’s map icon did not move when placed on the train.

All in all, the latest update has balanced the meta in Season 4 of Warzone yet again. However, there’s still no update on an anti-cheat, and millions of players around the world are eagerly waiting for it.
