The prolific and extremely dominated DMR will be getting a nerf very soon in Call of Duty: Warzone.
Developer Raven Software announced the changes to the DMR in a tweet yesterday January 5. In addition to the nerf for the unstoppable rifle, the Mac 10, Type 63, and dual pistols will also receive nerfs, all of which are exclusive to Call of Duty: Warzone, and will have nothing to do with the latest Call of Duty Black installment. Ops Cold War.
To clarify, these changes will be exclusive to #Warzone.

DMR in particular has become as popular as it is mastered over the past few weeks in Call of Duty: Warzone, with players on forums such as Reddit and ResetEra lamenting the developers’ radio silence on the issue. Additionally, the Mac 10 has been unstoppable in close combat as well, so it’s a relief that the SMG is getting weaker along with the DMR.
All of the weapons that received nerfs here joined Warzone from Black Ops Cold War late last year in December. Over 30 weapons joined the Battle Royale game, so there was always the possibility of imbalances when transferring the large number of weapons to the Infinity Ward game. Although there is no scheduled release date for the Raven Software solution, it is a relief to know that it is on its way.
In other Call of Duty news, data mines and leaks continue for Black Ops Cold War. Earlier this week, a leaker claimed that League Play would be coming to Treyarch’s new Call of Duty game no later than April, so there’s extremely competitive combat to look forward to.
