The promised Warzone nerfs is here, although not as good as you might think.
yesterday, Call of Duty: War Zone Developer Raven broke the silence to confirm that patches designed to weaken the powerful DMR 14, Diamattis, Mac 10 and Type 63 are coming soon.
A few hours after the news was released, the patch actually went offline.
According to Raven, both DMR 14 and Type 63 reduce headshot damage and increase recoil. Mac 10 reduced the headshot multiplier, and Dual Diamattis now has a wider hip fire spreading range and reduced damage range.
The time has come.

Although these changes have reduced the weapon’s lethality, many players do not believe that Raven has gone far enough. Many replies to Raven’s tweets express this view, and Warzone’s official subreddit is full of posts about how nerds (although popular) are not as big as they might think.
Others have been sharing footage of DMR 14, especially after nerf, to show that it will still be the dominant weapon. For Diamatti, the current recommendation is to use only one, because Raven only makes the combination of two hands akimbo neurotic.
Any further adjustments may have to wait until more players master the updated weapons. It is worth remembering that last year Infinity Ward took a few patches to get a satisfactory balance for the M4 and 725 shot guns.
