Call of Duty: Warzone latest patch nerfs the DMR again and fixes the stim glitch

Akimbo pistol builds in Warzone

Call of Duty: Warzone developer Raven Software has been scrambling to address serious balancing issues and bugs in its battle royale game lately, and it looks as though another round of fixes is on the way. The last update nerfed the troublesome DMR 14, along with several other weapons, but players still found the weapon overpowered – and now, the ‘infinite stim’ glitch has reared its ugly head again.

The good news is, it seems Raven is getting ready to deploy another round of balancing updates and fixes. Charlie Intel spotted a tweet from the company, which has since been deleted, that linked to what appears to be a set of patch notes for Warzone.

It’s unclear why Raven deleted its original tweet, although odds are fairly good that it was a case of someone posting the news ahead of schedule. Raven has since tweeted the link again, and the update appears to be going live as of this writing.

Another possibility is that the patch notes weren’t quite accurate originally and needed to be updated in light of late-breaking changes to what the update contains.

The biggest changes will be the changes to bullet penetration: for both the DMR-14 and the Type 63, their penetration levels have been reduced from sniper to assault rifle levels, meaning they’ll be much less effective against armoured opponents once the patch hits. Attachments won’t provide as much reduction to recoil as they’ve done in the past, too, so it’ll be tougher to land those one-two shots right in a row from now on.
