Raven Software has dropped a brand-new update for Warzone, making major changes to the game’s weapon balancing with nerfs to popular guns like the Krig 6, Stoner 63, and OTs 9 SMG.

There’s nothing quite like a weapon balancing update to throw the cat among the pigeons in Verdansk, and just one week after the Season 5 Reloaded patch, Raven has given the meta a huge shakeup.

While there are some significant nerfs to some of Warzone’s best weapons, the biggest casualty of the September 15 update is the OTs 9, which has had its recoil increased, and headshot, neck multipliers, and damage range all reduced.

On top of that, the Krig 6 and Stoner 63 LMG have also been hit by Raven, while the AUG and M16 Assault Rifles have received a boost.

It’s not just the three weapons above who have been hit hard by this patch. While the FARA 83, TEC-9, and QBZ-83 haven’t been dominating the meta, Raven have decided they needed to be nerfed too.

It’s important to know that while the game’s developers have released these notes to us, there are still more changes to come when the update officially goes live. Raven is set to release full patch notes on September 15, and we’ll be sure to update this article with any new information.

You can read the full September 15 Warzone patch notes below.
