Despite a myriad of other problems currently plaguing Call of Duty: Warzone, Raven Software has released a new weapon balancing update. While players would have liked to see an Anti-Cheat or fixes to Dead Silence, the weapon balancing will have to do for now. The developers buffed and nerfed a couple of weapons in the update, including the new CX-9 submachine gun.
The CX-9 has only been in Warzone for two days but the developers apparently feel it was too weak at launch. They’ve given it a slight buff while also nerfing one of Warzone’s best guns in the process. The Krig-6 assault rifle from Black Ops Cold War is on the receiving end of that nerf.
Warzone weapon balancing update for Krig 6 and CX-9
According to Raven Software, the only changes in the update come from the two weapon tweaks. However, as the community knows all too well, there could be some hidden changes within the update as well. Players will have to wait for content creators to discover whether this update holds any secrets.
Below, players can see both of the confirmed changes to the Krig 6 and CX-9.
Krig 6 (BOCW)
- Lower Torso Multiplier decreased from 1.1 to 1
- Maximum Damage Range decreased from 1500 to 1400
- Increased mid damage range from 20 to 21
- Increased Headshot Multiplier from 1.4 to 1.45
🛠️ We have pushed an update to #Warzone with a couple Weapon tweaks 🙂

The buff to the CX-9 is minimal at best. The SMG’s mid damage range was increased by a point while its headshot multiplier was increased by 0.5. It’s unlikely that this does too much for Warzone’s meta but the CX-9 appears to be among the best when it comes to fast-firing SMGs. Perhaps this change could tip the scales and move the CX-9 ahead of the MAC-10 in the meta.
As for the Krig 6, it’s a beefier nerf. The maximum damage range for the AR was decreased quite a bit as was the lower torso multiplier. This could move other ARs in front of the Krig for meta domination, but that’s yet to be determined.
That does it for the Warzone update that was pushed out on Aug. 5. The next update for the game should come with Season 5, which launches on Aug. 12.
