Overnight, Sledgehammer Games released a new update in Call of Duty: Warzone. Most fans expected to have to wait until Season 6 to see another update but the developers decided the weapon meta needed some immediate alteration. In the Sept. 15 patch notes, fans will see several changes to weapons and attachments that are sure to shake up the meta in Warzone.

The main focus of the update was to adjust some of the game’s more dominant weapons. This was mainly in the form of nerfs, so players might need to change up their loadouts in Season 5.

There’s quite a bit to unpack in the Sept. 15 update and fans can see the full patch notes below.
