After the slightly smaller nerfs of the past week, Raven Software has returned another set of adjustments to the Call of Duty: War ZoneWeapons. This time around, the developer is making major changes to both the tactical AUG rifle and the FFAR 1 assault rifle.
The AUG, also known as Tactical Rifle Charlie, got a nerf last week, but it seems that wasn’t enough to contain its power. This time, Raven increases the recoil of the weapon again, which should make control much more difficult. Raven’s notes state that the AUG should remain powerful, just not as dominant as it has been recently. Since these changes don’t shift the overall damage done to the gun, it’s difficult to say how much Nerf this will really be.
War zoneThe other dominant weapon over the past few weeks has been the FFAR 1 assault rifle, a versatile and mobile weapon with many great uses. To reduce performance a bit, the aim down sight speed has been decreased. This should give players a slight delay before they can achieve their objectives in hand-to-hand combat, which could lose some of the FFAR 1’s formidable power, especially against submachine guns.

Call of Duty: Warzone April 6th Patch Notes
- The camo challenges for the R1 Shadowhunter now display correctly for the Geometric, Flora, and Science Camo categories.
Cold War Tactical Rifle Charlie (AUG)
- The recoil resistance has been increased
Burst weapons range between inefficient and oppressive. The intention of this change is to preserve the identity of the weapon as a powerhouse and at the same time to make it a bit more difficult to use. Right now, we think it’s too easy to get on with target given how deadly it is. We will continue to monitor the performance of the Tactical Rifle Charlie and make further changes as necessary.
- The ADS speed has been reduced
The FFAR is an all-rounder. It has the damage profile and r ange of an AR, as well as the rate of fire of an SMG. The wholesale efficiency of the FFAR has resulted in the displacement of SMGs in areas we are not stratified with. Ideally, the FFAR will play the role of a medium-range dominator while falling prey to weapons that excel in hand-to-hand combat. We’re bringing the FFAR a bit more in line with what you can expect from an AR – damage and range at the expense of handling.
- Rear handle attachments that ADS speed pros demonstrated should now properly increase ADS speed.
- Fixed a bug with the Groza that allowed the 16.5-inch CMV Mil-Spec barrel to bypass the damage drop.
- Fixed a bug with the Ember Sighting Point that caused the ADS speed of the XM4 and AK-47 to increase rather than decrease.
- Fixed a bug with the Salvo Fast Mag where the ADS speed of FFAR 1 and M16 was not reduced.
- The Pelington 703 Wrapped Suppressor effects should now display their status bar correctly.
