Call of Duty Warzone has been given a new update on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One and PC.

Actually, it’s a re-release of an old patch, which was originally supposed to launch on June 30.

Unfortunately, there were issues with the Call of Duty Warzone update, which led to it being pulled.

“Due to an ongoing issue with this mornings update we have made the decision to roll the update back while we work on a fix,” Raven Software explained.

“We will update as soon as the issue is resolved and the update is relaunched.”

In a follow-up announcement earlier today, Raven confirmed that the Warzone update is now available on PlayStation, Xbox and PC.

Interestingly, the Warzone update has an interesting new addition, as the recoil pattern of the XM4 has been smoothed.

“A Warzone update is being (re)released into the wild!” Raven continues. “Thank you for your patience while we resolved the issue.

We slipped in an additional Weapon change/note: XM4 (BOCW) – Recoil pattern smoothed.”

The remaining Call of Duty Warzone patch notes can be seen below.


Assault Rifles

• C58 (BOCW)

 – Recoil increased slightly

• FARA 83 (BOCW)

 – Recoil increased slightly

• XM4 (BOCW)

 – Recoil pattern smoothed

Submachine Guns

• Nail Gun (BOCW)

 – Maximum Damage range decreased by 39%

“The Nail Gun (BOCW) is and was meant to be a lethal, highly-mobile, short-range dominator. However, its Maximum Damage range far exceeded the lethal range of Shotguns, which it is intended to contest.

“The Nail Gun’s (BOCW) generous range and mobility allowed it to consistently dispatch foes at the same speed or faster than Shotguns at almost twice their effective range. While the Nail Gun’s (BOCW) pick rate has remained relatively low, we believe it would have been much higher were it more easily accessible.”

“We are satisfied with the overall direction of adding Recoil Control to BOCW Barrels. However, we would like the effectiveness of a Weapon to grow with the wielder as they improve.

“We felt with the magnitude by which recoil was being reduced, there was hardly any room left to master the control of these Weapons. We want Weapons to reward you for learning their reload timings, recoil patterns, and bullets to kill.

“Your proficiency with a Weapon should be a journey that is worked toward with an equivalent payoff. When we make Weapons too effective and too easy to control, there is no journey of mastery and we can become disinterested with these Weapons much quicker – which we feel can be a disservice.

“Even after these changes, we understand that there may still be incredibly effective and easy to control Weapons when enough Recoil Control is applied through attachments. We will continue to target these Weapons as they arise to ensure that they strike a satisfactory balance between upside and downside.”
