Warzone players aren’t happy with the developer’s choice to nerf the Modern Warfare Fal in the Season 5 Reloaded update, causing disappointment among the community.
Although many might have been happy with the changes in the patch notes, such as the Krig 6 nerf, which was a weapon that was dominating for some time now, some are unhappy with changes to the Modern Warfare Fal.
Reddit user SindraGan2001 posted their frustration and disappointment with the developers choice to nerf the Fal with a post entitled:
“They actually nerfed the FAL… again! They say that their data says the FAL is a monster. Well, no shit when only hackers/cheaters use it! The whole point of the gun is to be strong if you hit headshots, which is not easy at all…”
The Fal’s upper torso multiplayer was nerfed in the patch notes from 1.1 to 1, which may not seem that big of a change, but players will now need an additional headshot to achieve the weapons best TTK which is actually quite a significant nerf.
The developer’s explanation for the change was detailed in the patch notes, which can be found below:
“To the dismay or surprise of some, our data suggests that the Assault Rifle Bravo (MW) is an absolute monster. The Assault Rifle Bravo (MW) will still be capable of achieving an extremely low Time to Kill, though that speed will now be locked behind an additional Headshot. Changes like these align more closely with our goal to shift consistently acquirable TTKs out of the 300ms range.“
The Reddit user claims that the only reason the developer’s data is suggesting the weapon is “an absolute monster” is because “only hackers/cheaters use it.” Although the developers claim that the change will still allow the Fal to achieve a low TTK, players in the comments of the Reddit post seem to feel otherwise:
“Wtf. I use the FAL a lot, and after the last nerf it already kind of felt like a hit marker machine, now they’ve just made it unusable for most players, besides the hackers who can get headshots only.”
We’ll see just how far this nerf affects the weapons usage as the season progresses, and perhaps the developers will make further changes if disappointment continues.

Warzone players want Raven to switch two POIs on Caldera
A Warzone player has rearranged the POIs on Caldera after the community has expressed their discontent with the map design.
Warzone’s new map hasn’t exactly been received very well by players and now the community is suggesting that Raven should switch around two of the POI’s.
Warzone‘s new map Caldera hasn’t exactly been getting positive reviews since it was introduced. As well as bugs and glitches on the map, players have also not been happy with the layout, with many missing Verdansk.
With that being said, one player decided to come up with a way to make the map better by rearranging the POIs.
Reddit user ARES_GOD put a post up in the Warzone subreddit of the Caldera map. The post is captioned: “Hey @RavenSoftware just a thought about Caldera think this would feel better… (Changing POI location).”
Upon inspection, players will notice that the map of Caldera in the post is slightly different from the actual layout of the map. In fact, two of the most popular POIs have switched positions with each other, which the player feels would make Caldera “feel better.”
The two POIs in question are Peak and Capital, which have been switched in this version of the Caldera map. Peak is usually right in the center of the map, which many players aren’t too fond of, as one of the comments states: “Yeah i just dont like peak in the middle.”
The massive mountain directly in the middle of Caldera makes it hard to rotate, as traversing up rocky terrain is notoriously difficult in Warzone.
The idea is to switch this massive height with Capital, a more level POI that would likely make it easier for players to rotate through. Players seem to like the idea, as the post has over three hundred upvotes, with comments expressing their fondness of the change: “The way you edited the map like this is incredible…more buildings at the center for strategizing.”
However, one comment has pointed out that the logistics of the change won’t make much sense: “But whos going to go to an island resort NOT on the beach. And the capital needs a water way for trade. Not very feasible. Though I agree, peak dead center, not my favorite.”
This probably won’t be the way in which Raven updates Caldera, however, they have confirmed that changes are coming.
