Warzone May 27 update patch notes: Truck Solos spawn rate, AMAX nerfed, weapon updates

The new Warzone game settings update includes changes to the FARA, AMAX, Trucks, and more.

Published

Raven Software has released a new game settings update for Call of Duty: Warzone on all platforms on May 27 which brings some highly requested updates for Solo players along with more weapon balancing updates.

The new Game Settings Update for Warzone will bring a highly requested change for the Solos mode in Warzone. The Bertha, the cargo truck in Warzone, has had its spawn rate drastically reduced in Solos.

This update also brings some weapon changes and updates.

The update brings an additional nerf for the CR-56 AMAX, as Raven says they believe the weapon is still over performing in its category.

Also included are some changes to the FARA, Tactical Rifle Charlie, the optics of the Tundra, and updates to certain Cold War attachments in Call of Duty: Warzone.

Raven shared the full patch notes for the update, as seen below.

May 27 Patch Notes

GAMEPLAY 

  • Cargo Truck spawn rates for Verdansk Solo BR mode have been reduced to 5 (static) from a range of 16 to 20. 
    • This change will take effect when our Playlist update goes live later today.
    • Cargo Trucks are incredibly durable and provide ample cover from enemy fire—which makes them the optimal choice for map rotation. In Solos, players are not keen to unload a considerable amount of their resources into the removal of Cargo Trucks, which would often result in a significant number of them in final circles. The ensuing gameplay allowed players to skirt traditional engagements and created a crutch that put less of an emphasis on end game positioning and gunplay. A substantial reduction in the number of Cargo Trucks in Solos will make whittling them down over the course of the game a feasible and attractive option given their considerably reduced map presence. 

BUG FIXES 

  • Fixed additional map locations in Verdansk that allowed players to reach out-of-bounds areas.
  • Fixed additional collision issues with various elements across Verdansk allowing players to exploit/peek/shoot through them. 
  • Fixed a bug where vehicles could down or kill squad mates. 
  • Fixed an issue in Nakatomi Plaza where the vault access denied audio could be heard throughout the entire building.
    • Because we can’t trust you to realize that once access has been denied, you should walk away from the button and not try again… and over again… and over again
  • Fixed a bug preventing the Ballistic Knife Camouflage skins from unlocking upon completing their respective requirements. 
  • Fixed a bug where the Swat 5mw Laser Sight for Sniper Rifles was not displaying Aiming Stability as a pro. 
  • Fixed the incorrect labeling of Sniper Rifle Echo as Sniper Rifle Delta. 

WEAPONS 

  • Assault Rifles 
    • CR-56 AMAX 
      • Headshot multiplier decreased from 1.62 to 1.5
      • The CR-56 AMAX has continued to display disproportionate levels of dominance over the long-range Assault Rifle space. As we continue our efforts to slowly raise the Time to Kill, we feel the best course of action here is to reduce the power level of outliers rather than increase others to meet it. We believe it will take some time to adjust to a landscape where the CR-56 AMAX is not the undisputed king of long-range automatic weapons, but we feel this will be a net positive given how many more weapons we expect to be introduced into viability with this update. Our hope is that this change will present players with an opportunity to showcase and expand their mastery over a multitude of weapons that had been outclassed by the CR-56 AM. 
         
    • FARA 83 
      • Recoil pattern adjusted 
      • Hip Spread increased 
      • We have not yet settled on the identity of the FARA 83. We would like to see it as a long-range viable Assault Rifle and in that light, we have smoothed out its recoil to be easier to control at range. We are also increasing its Hip Spread so it is slightly less effective in close quarters. This functional overlap is something we want to avoid and will continue to address where we identify it. 
         
  • Tactical Rifles
     
    • Tactical Rifle Charlie 
      • Recoil magnitude decreased 
      • Tactical Rifle Charlie has fallen victim to a bit of an overreduction in efficacy. While we still maintain that Tactical Rifles ride a very thin line between underwhelming and oppressive, we feel that the Tactical Rifle Charlie could be closer to that line. 
         
  • Sniper Rifles
     
    • LW3 – Tundra 
      • Base optic adjusted 
      • We have made some adjustments to reduce the fisheye lens effect. 

ATTACHMENTS 

  • Optics
     
    • Axial Arms 3x 
      • Optic reworked 
         
    • Royal & Kross 4x 
      • Optic reworked 
         
    • SUSAT Multizoom 
      • Optic reworked 
         
    • We feel the impact that these changes will have cannot be understated. We believe optics have been holding back the long-range viability of BOCW Weapons and we expect that these optics adjustments will drastically change that. When optics are too close to the camera, they can cause distracting motions and visual obfuscation and in long-range engagements especially, visual clarity is crucial. We believe with these changes, that an expanded assortment of long-range viable weapons will become available. 
       
  • Muzzles
     
    • Suppressor (LMG) 
      • ADS Speed increased from 2% to 3.5% 
      • Sprint to Fire Speed increased from 4% to 5% 
      • We have seen some reports that the Suppressor appears to be affecting Light Machine Guns negatively, or not at all. We can assure you that is not the case. Considering the test environment frame rate and such small increments, it can be difficult to accurately measure the impact an attachment may have. Notwithstanding, we felt that the values on the LMG Suppressor could use an increase to give them more of a fighting chance in a sea of Assault Rifles.

The cryptic message on the official Call of Duty website regarding the Warzone Red Doors reads:

“Our intel cannot explain the origin of these mysterious red doors around Verdansk, but one thing is certain: They allow you to [[REDACTED]] around the [[REDACTED]]. What’s behind them? Explore and enter them to [[REDACTED]] across the [[REDACTED]].

Red Doors won’t [[REDACTED]] unless you ping them, and after you step through, there’s no telling [[REDACTED]] exiting out the other side… and stepping into a [[REDACTED]].”

This has left fans excited and even more intrigued into how these Red Doors will work. Some believe they may teleport players around the map or even take them to a new location. Perhaps the missing first missing words are “travel” and “map.”

We first saw these Warzone Red Doors in the Verdansk ’84 cutscene, which sent players back in time, backing up the rumor that the Warzone Red Doors will teleport players around the map.

One thing is for sure. We will find out exactly what the Warzone Red Doors will do on June 17, as the feature will be available upon launch of the new season. This new feature will undoubtedly bring a whole new gameplay experience for players to experience and master for the foreseeable future
