After the somewhat minor nerves of the past week, Raven Software has returned with another set of settings by Call of Duty: War Zoneweapons of. This time around, the developer is bringing bigger changes to both the AUG Tactical Rifle and the FFAR 1 Assault Rifle.
The AUG, also known as Tactical Rifle Charlie, suffered a nerf last week, but it seems it wasn’t enough to control its power. This time around, Raven is once again increasing the recoil of the weapon, which should make it that much harder to control. Raven’s notes explain that she wants AUG to remain powerful, but not as dominant as it has been recently. Since these changes don’t represent a change to the weapon’s overall damage, it’s hard to say how much nerf it will actually be.
War zoneThe other dominant weapon in recent weeks has been the FFAR 1 assault rifle, which is a versatile, mobile weapon with many great uses. To reduce its power a bit, the speed of aiming down has been reduced. This should give players a slight delay before they can raise their sights on close-range combat, which could take away some of the FFAR 1’s impressive power, especially against machine guns.
To see all the changes in the last War zone patch, you can take a look at it Raven’s full patch notes.
Call of Duty: Warzone April 6 Patch Notes
- Shadowhunter R1 camo challenges now appear correctly for Geometric, Floral, and Scientific camo categories.
Cold War Charlie Tactical Rifle (AUG)
- Recoil force increased
Explosive weapons draw a fine line between the inefficient and the oppressive. The intention of this change is to maintain the identity of the weapon of being a powerhouse and to make it a little more difficult to handle. Right now we feel like it’s too easy to stay on target given how deadly it is. We will continue to monitor the performance of the Charlie Tactical Rifle and make additional changes if necessary.
- ADS speed has been reduced
The FFAR is an expert in all trades. It has the damage profile and range of an AR, as well as the rate of fire of an SMG. The wholesale effectiveness of the FFAR makes it outperform SMGs in ranges with which we are not stratified. Ideally, the FFAR fulfills the role of a mid-range dominator while falling prey to weapons that excel in short-range engagements. We’re bringing the FFAR a bit more in line with what you might expect from an AR: damage and range at the expense of handling.
- Rear grip attachments shown by ADS speed pros should now properly increase ADS speed.
- Fixed a bug with the Groza where the CMV Mil-Spec 16.5 ”barrel prevented falling damage.
- Fixed a bug with the Ember Sighting Point where the XM4 and AK-47 had their ADS speed increased instead of decreased.
- Fixed a bug with the Salvo Fast Mag where the FFAR 1 and M16 did not have their ADS speed decreased.
- Pelington 703 wrapped suppressor effects should now correctly render its status bar.
