Call of Duty: Warzone: Snake Shot Gets Nerfed

Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare both just received a small update and it's news for .357 fans. The surprise patch is entirely made up of balance tweaks and bug fixes.

A balancing patch for everybody's favourite OP handgun arrived today, here's everything you need to know.

We're all aware of the reign of terror caused by the .357 magnum, going akimbo with Snake Shot equipped is a sure-fire way to rack up the kills and infuriate your enemies. 

Well, unfortunately, the jig is up. Thanks to Infinity Wards small update, the Snake Shot attachment has been nerfed and will no longer dismantle rooms of enemies in a few taps of the trigger buttons.


What is Snake Shot?

The Snake Shot is an attachment that essentially turns the .357 Magnum into a mini shotgun, pair this with the akimbo perk, some lasers and the 'match grade trigger' and you've got a receipe for pure death.
