Warzone Pacific Season 2 Reloaded: All Weapon Buffs and Nerfs

As part of the Season 2 Reloaded update for Warzone, Raven Software implemented a brand-new dose of weapon balancing in order to maintain some kind of balance on Caldera and Rebirth Island.

Alongside the merging of Vanguard Royale, the mid-season update brings in a significant increase in player health alongside the Armaguerra 43 submachine gun.

With certain weapons dominating the game, ensuring balance is a key ingredient of Warzone's success despite developers sometimes missing the mark. With that said, find all of the Season 2 Reloaded buffs and nerfs in this article.
