In the most recent set of patch notes for Call of Duty: Warzone, Raven Software explained that they would be taking a look at struggling Modern Warfare weapons in the battle royale with an intention to buff them.

A large portion of Warzone’s life was only filled with weapons from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, but this changed with the release and integration of Black Ops Cold War into the battle royale game.

This integration saw weapons from Black Ops Cold War dominate the meta and leave the vast majority of Modern Warfare weapons in the dust.

The most recent patch notes that Warzone developers Raven Software released on May 7, 2021, gave fans of the Modern Warfare weapons hope for the future.

In the May 7th, 2021 patch notes, Raven Software gave a detailed explanation of the latest round of changes that the studio made to Warzone that included a great deal of weapon balancing and changes to floor loot, which had been a major topic of discussion amongst players in Season 3.

One of the most interesting things that caught the community’s eyes in the patch notes for Warzone was near the end when Raven Software addressed concerns that they would only be making changes to Black Ops Cold War weapons and provided a tease of a Warzone Modern Warfare weapons buff.

“Finally, we would like to address concerns that we are only going to be making changes to Cold War weapons. In the future, we fully intend on taking a closer look at some of the Modern Warfare weapons that have been struggling,” said Raven Software.

The nerf of the CR-56 AMAX in the May 7 patch notes for Warzone is one of the first major changes that have been applied to Modern Warfare weapons since the integration of Black Ops Cold War into the Call of Duty battle royale.

With Call of Duty 2021 and future games planned to integrate into Warzone as the central hub of the franchise from now on, there have been concerns that fan-favorite weapons from past games would be forgotten and never touched by the developers in the future.

Raven Software has now made it clear that they do not intend to do this for the Modern Warfare weapons for at least the rest of the Black Ops Cold War cycle in Warzone.

Warzone devs announce MG 82 nerf is officially coming

The MG 82 LMG has already proven it is overpowered, as the Warzone developers have announced that a nerf is coming for the Season 4 weapon.

Warzone MG 82 Nerf

Season 4 brought the MG 82 LMG to Call of Duty: Warzone, and it has proven to be a dominating force which has prompted Raven Software to announce that a nerf is indeed coming to the LMG.

Each new season of Warzone has brought new weapons for players to use in their battles, and Season 4 was no different with the addition of the MG 82 LMG, C58 Assault Rifle, and Nail Gun.

However, the MG 82 LMG quickly proved that it is taking over the meta, as the fast-firing and hard-hitting machine gun showed itself as easily one of the best guns that have ever been in the Call of Duty battle royale, with players having already called for it be nerfed.

After one whole day of this new LMG destroying players on Verdansk ’84 and Rebirth Island, Raven Software answered these calls and announced that a Warzone MG 82 nerf is indeed coming in the future.

The development studio took to its official Twitter account to reveal to the community that the new Season 4 LMG was a tad too powerful and that they would be taking a look and making adjustments to it. You can find Raven’s official announcement below:

“The MG 82 (BOCW) made one too many trips to the Pack-a-Punch machine before deploying to Verdansk. Element 115 is off limits in #Warzone, so we will be making an adjustment to this Weapon soon.”

Some players were sad to see the weapon already have a nerf planned for it after only one full day of it being in the game.

Others were happy to see that Raven Software was already working on a Warzone MG 82 nerf to make the LMG fairer than what it currently is in the first-person shooter.

The developer did not give an exact date for when players can expect to see the Warzone MG 82 nerf occur, so it remains to be seen how long the community will have to experience the new LMG in its current form.
