On Thursday, Raven Software surprised the community with a new update and patch notes for Call of Duty: Warzone. This is the second update following the release of Season 5 Reloaded, which introduced a slew of changes itself. One of the biggest changes from that update was Iron Trials ’84, which is now being tweaked in the Sept. 23 patch today. Along with that, Raven is making some more weapon balance alterations and squashing some bugs.

In regard to the weapon changes, Raven is nerfing the Bullfrog and buffing the Krig 6, most notably. The developers are reverting the Krig’s previous nerfs, making the weapon a bit stronger while also lowering the Bullfrog’s power. These changes along with the rest of the Sept. 23 Warzone update can be found below in the patch notes.

They also stated they’ll be monitoring player feedback to see that the change introduced is doing what it set out to do.

It seems the assault rifles in Black Ops Cold War will now be even stronger in Warzone. Recoil has been slashed for barrel attachments on the Krig 6, XM4 and AK-47. It will be interesting to see how this alters the recommended loadouts for Season 5 and beyond.

Depending on how this update plays out, this could be the last set of patch notes until Season 6 of Warzone.
