Snake Shot’s reign of terror in Call of Duty: Warzone may be over.
Infinity Ward has just released a small update for both Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare . The surprise patch is made up of balance adjustments and bug fixes.
Without a doubt, the biggest change has to do with the .357 Snake Shot, a weapon accessory that turns the .357 (magnum) into a small shotgun. In Warzone, its damage and consistency surpassed everything else. In fact, it became so powerful that we had to include it in our best Warzone teams. Having Akimbo Snake Shots was a growing threat.
Today’s review “rebalances” Snake Shot damage. It also fixes a bug that caused its damage to be greater at longer distances than expected. However, the .357 did benefit slightly, in a reduction in firing delay when using lightweight, match-grade triggers.
Another major adjustment affects the challenge of “getting murders by the smoke.” Infinity Ward relaxed the requirements a bit, so it should be easier to count your kills, which should help you unlock the Bruen MK9 LMG faster.
Outside of that, there are some vehicle repairs that should help get rid of that damn helicopter feat.
Read the full patch notes below:
Tweak all the smoke challenges to be a little more forgiving. This includes the challenge of unlocking the Bruen MK9.
