A surprise patch has gone live for Warzone addressing some recent issues within the game.

The Bruen MK9, FR 5.56 Shotgun, ISO and 725 have been hit with some adjustments.


A recent bug has made the underbarrel shotgun a force to be reckoned with on the FR 5.56, meaning it can one-shot from 15 metres away.

Meanwhile, the powerful LMG has dominated the recent meta in Warzone and has received yet another nerf to control it's dominance.

Here's what's changed in the recent patch notes.
