Season 2 of Warzone Pacific is now underway, much to the delight of players hoping Raven Software has managed to fix numerous bugs and glitches impacting the game. In addition to the long list of bug fixes, a dose of weapon balancing has arrived in a bid to shake up the metagame.

The latest season of post-launch content contains several buffs and nerfs to a variety of weapons that featured in the loadouts of players throughout Season 1. Changes include modifications to damage range, damage multiplier, and recoil to ensure a somewhat level playing field is maintained.

With so many changes made to the vast majority of the Warzone arsenal, it's tricky to determine which weapons are worth using on Caldera and Rebirth Island. With that said, here are all of the notable buffs and nerfs included in the Warzone Pacific Season 2 update.

Warzone Pacific Season 2 Buffs and Nerfs

Warzone MP40 and Bren Nerf

Perhaps the most notable change to the Warzone arsenal involves the MP40 and Bren from Vanguard. The two weapons regularly appeared in the loadouts of players, ultimately leading Raven Software to intervene. Here are all the changes made.

MP40

  • Maximum Damage Range decreased to 422, down from 473
  • Mid Damage Range decreased to 600, down from 612

Bren

  • Left Upper Arm Multiplier decreased to 1, down from 1.1

  • Lower Torso Multiplier decreased to 1, down from 1.1
  • Right Upper Arm Multiplier decreased to 1, down from 1.1

The nerfs to the MP40 make the SMG far less effective in long-range engagements while the changes to the Bren will increase its time to kill. It remains to be seen whether the popular weapons remain in the meta.
