Call of Duty: Warzone: January 13th Update, Patch Notes, DMR Nerfed Again

The DMR has been nerfed AGAIN!

Since developer Raven Software implemented a weapon balancing update for Call of Duty: Warzone on January 6th, the community has continued to express their frustration at the lack of weapon balance currently in the battle royale.

The January 6th update saw nerfs to the controversial DMR 14 tactical rifle, the MAC-10 sub-machine gun, and the Dual Wield attachment for the Diamatti pistol.

Despite the nerfs, the Warzone metagame has remained unchanged as the combination of the DMR and MAC-10 continues to dominate in Verdansk and Rebirth Island.

For players wanting further changes to the weapon balance, you may be in luck!

In a now-deleted Tweet from Raven Software, the developer posted details on further changes to the DMR and the Type 63 in a bid to restore some form of balance to the Warzone weapon arsenal.
