The latest update has arrived to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone. The October 11 patch notes include some weapon balancing for Warzone and adjustments to Season 6's most frustrating operator skin.
Season 6 includes a battle pass mostly themed around characters from the Spawn universe, but there's also a Gaia operator skin with a Groot-like appearance. The tree character is a dark wood with quite a bit of transparency around the torso and legs that has caused some major visibility issues. Thankfully, the patch notes mention "improved visibility compensation" and the addition of visual effects to the base skin to reflect the same level of visibility as the BlackCell variant of Gaia.
Several weapons receive adjustments that only affect Warzone. The ISO 9mm submachine gun and the TR-76 Geist assault rifle have been dominant forces in the battle royale ever since their introduction in Season 6, but both guns were nerfed in the update. The ISO 9mm now deals less damage, and the TR-76 Geist has a decrease to damage as well as the neck damage and the upper torso damage multipliers.
And most importantly, the overpowered Lockwood 300 is also nerfed. The shotgun should no longer be a one-shot sniper, as the new Maelstrom Dual Trigger is adjusted to deal less close-range damage and have a shorter close-to-mid damage range.
The update also includes a few small fixes, including a DMZ issue that prevented players from changing/customizing their operators when using a controller and a skill rating exploit was patched in Warzone Ranked Play.
The full list of weapon balancing and patch notes can be found below, as shared by Activision.
