Call of Duty: Warzone Aug. 3 patch notes leaves Kilo 141, KG M40 nerfed

A new update makes some weapon changes

Earlier this week, Raven Software deployed a new update and a set of patch notes in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4. The update somewhat amends the changes that were made in Season 4 Reloaded, which buffed and nerfed a plethora of weapons. Most notably, the developers buffed several guns from Modern Warfare, causing a mini-renaissance in Warzone. Players have flocked to those older guns in waves, resulting in Vanguard guns not being used as often.

In the Aug. 3 update, Raven made some changes to try and rectify this imbalance in the meta. While the Modern Warfare guns are still strong, the developers want to ensure they don’t dominate the meta. Some Vanguard guns were also buffed to balance out the meta even further. However, Vanguard guns that were also popular in the meta were nerfed as well.

Below, fans can see the full slate of patch notes from the most recent update in Warzone. They can also visit Raven’s website to see how the changes compare to the ones from Season 4 Reloaded.

Raven Software will likely continue to monitor the weapon data before Season 5 arrives, so fans should expect another update soon.
