During season 3’s launch week, Warzone will get two new weapons. The PPSh-41 is a submachine gun with a particularly excessive charge of hearth, whereas the Swiss Ok31 sniper rifle is a bolt-action rifle with spectacular velocity. These two weapons are each half of the season 3 battle move for each Warzone and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Players can even now unlock the LC-10 SMG and the FARA 83 assault rifle by finishing their challenges.

As for the outdated weapons, this patch takes goal at some of Warzone’s most overpowered weapons, together with tactical rifles and the FFAR 1. The FFAR 1 now does much less harm, has a decrease most harm vary, and does much less harm to gamers’ necks and torsos when it hits them. Meanwhile, Cold War Tactical Rifle Charlie, also referred to as the AUG, takes 33% longer to fireplace between bursts and does much less harm to gamers’ necks. The M16 additionally takes longer to fireplace between bursts, simply 10%, and likewise acquired a nerf to neck harm.

The new patch notes additionally embody a short tease about what’s coming subsequent for Verdansk, however they solely point out that “Armistice Central Command will be communicating directly to all Operators with further instructions.” While we’re not completely positive what which means, we do know that Raven’s occasion schedule says that one thing massive ought to be occurring in Warzone at 3 p.m. EDT on Thursday.

Call of Duty: Warzone’s season 3 patch went stay at midnight EDT on Thursday. For a have a look at every little thing that’s altering with the new patch you possibly can try the full patch notes.

Call of Duty: Warzone season 3 patch notes


  • Cold War weapons have had their ammo names up to date.
  • The FFAR 1 crosshair has been up to date to match different Assault Rifles.

New Weapons

  • PPSh-41: SMG (Launch Week)
    Tier 15 of the Battle Pass.
  • Swiss Ok31: Sniper Rifle (Launch Week)
    Tier 31 of the Battle Pass

Two New Weapon Unlock Challenges

  • LC-10
    Using SMGs, get 3 kills with out dying in 15 completely different matches.
  • FARA 83
    Using Assault Rifles, get 2 headshot kills in 15 completely different matches.

Assault Rifles

  • Cold War AK-47
    Recoil sample has been adjusted

The recoil sample on the Cold War AK-47 had made its downsides much more obvious than its upsides. We have smoothed out its recoil to make it simpler to manage. If you might be correct, or expert at recoil management you’ll now discover the Cold War AK-47 fairly efficient at most ranges.

  • FARA 83
    Minimum harm elevated from 25 to 26
    Maximum harm decreased from 33 to 31
    Maximum harm vary elevated by 17%
    Recoil sample has been adjusted

As a fast-firing AR with comparatively sturdy recoil, we felt there was an excessive amount of of an id overlap between the FARA 83 and the FFAR 1. We have smoothed out its recoil and pushed its harm profile out to be a extra viable mid-long vary AR choice.

  • FFAR 1
    Maximum harm decreased from 30 to 27
    Maximum harm vary decreased by 15%
    Neck harm multiplier modified from 1.1 to 1
    Upper torso harm multiplier modified from 1.1 to 1
    ADS velocity decreased barely

With excessive harm, charge of hearth, and a aggressive magazine dimension, the FFAR 1 has loved a prolonged reign of terror on the short-to-mid vary engagement area. When a weapon is so ruthlessly environment friendly that it pushes everything of a weapon class out of viability, it must be addressed. The FFAR 1 will stay a decent choice following this modification, however it ought to now be a playstyle choice reasonably than a loadout necessity.

  • Groza
    Recoil elevated barely
    ADS velocity decreased barely
    Upper torso harm multiplier modified from 1.3 to 1.1

This change is extra of a precaution. We count on within the absence of the FFAR 1, that the Groza would rise to take its place. While there’ll at all times be a ‘meta’, we wish the meta to exist in a TTK vary that may be a bit larger than the place we’re at present. In that regard, we consider the Groza was a bit of an outlier that, very like the FFAR 1, may have been detrimental to weapon variety. Bringing the Groza down a notch ought to enable for some wholesome competitors on this weapon class.

  • Krig 6
    Head harm multiplier modified from 1.Four to 1.5
    Neck harm multiplier modified from 1 to 1.3
    Upper torso harm multiplier modified from 1 to 1.1
    Lower torso harm multiplier modified from 1 to 1.1

The Krig 6 has lengthy been overshadowed by different all-stars within the AR class. We consider this modification will enable for a extra aggressive Time to Kill given the photographs are properly positioned.

  • QBZ-83
    Move velocity elevated
    ADS transfer velocity elevated
    Neck harm multiplier modified from 1 to 1.2
    Upper torso harm multiplier modified from 1 to 1.1

The QBZ-83 is a singular weapon that trades total lethality for mobility. We goal to supply gamers with the instruments to assist a mess of attention-grabbing playstyle choices. Our objective is that with the best attachments, skillful maneuvering and rotations will likely be an indicator of the QBZ playstyle. We have additionally given it a much-needed nudge in lethality when you can handle aiming and shifting concurrently.

Submachine Guns

  • LC10
    Bullet velocity elevated barely
  • Mac-10
    Maximum harm decreased by 1

This is one other precautionary change to advertise variety. The Mac-10 is each standard and enjoyable to make use of. Part of what makes the Mac-10 really feel honest to play towards is that its upside feels comparative to its draw back. That is the place participant talent is available in. Knowing when and what weapon to swap to throughout an engagement is a aspect of talent expression we need to spotlight every time attainable. While this modification solely brings the Mac-10’s Time to Kill up by about 10%, we predict this can be a good place to begin to encourage exploration within the SMG class.

Sniper Rifles

  • Pelington 703
    ADS velocity elevated
    Raise time elevated barely

Tactical Rifles

  • Cold War Tactical Rifle Charlie
    Time between bursts elevated by 33%
    Neck harm multiplier modified from 1.eight to 1.3
  • M16
    Time between bursts elevated by 10%
    Neck harm multiplier modified from 1.eight to 1.1

The Cold War Tactical Rifle Charlie and the M16 had been capable of attain charges of hearth that allowed the wielder to negate a requisite id pillar of burst rifles—accuracy. With their excessive charges of hearth and beneficiant burst sample, photographs weren’t required to be properly positioned. You would inherit the excessive harm profile and vary of burst rifles with minimal draw back. With this modification, and the change to Fire Rate barrels famous under, you’ll now must goal intentionally when you intend to kill rapidly.

And … we’re protecting an in depth eye on the AMAX. No king guidelines without end.


  • Position Concealment
    Position Concealment will cut back the time your place is seen on the compass and minimap after firing. This impact has been added as a professional on each the Flashguard and SOCOM/KGB Eliminator.


  • 16.3” Rapid Fire (M16)
    Increase to charge of hearth lowered by 58%
  • 18” Rapid Fire (Tactical Rifle Charlie)
    Increase to charge of hearth lowered by 56%
  • 15.9” Strike Team (M16)
    Increase to charge of hearth lowered by 66%
  • 18.2” Strike Team (Tactical Rifle Charlie)
    Increase to charge of hearth lowered by 64%
  • 16.3” Titanium (M16)
    Increase to charge of hearth lowered by 61%
  • 17” Titanium (Tactical Rifle Charlie)
    Increase to charge of hearth lowered by 59%
  • Sorokin 140mm Auto (Sykov)
    Minimum harm lowered from 23 to 19
  • Sorokin 140mm Auto AND Akimbo (Sykov)
    Minimum harm lowered from 19 to 14
    This solely impacts the weapon when each the Sorokin 140mm Auto and the Akimbo attachment are geared up concurrently.

The Sykov, when geared up with any permutation of the Sorokin 140mm Auto has been much more deadly at vary than we would favor. When secondary weapons can go toe-to-toe with, and even finest a main weapon constantly, we danger streamlining entry to 1 of essentially the most highly effective Perks within the recreation—Ghost. While we proceed to look at the influence that Ghost has on gameplay, offering simpler entry to it with negligible draw back isn’t one thing we need to allow.


  • Ember Sighting Point
    ADS velocity penalty lowered by 20%
  • SOF Target Designator
    Flashlight is now seen throughout hip-fire and ADS


  • Salvo/VDV Fast Mag
    ADS velocity penalty lowered by 20%

  • Ultrazoom Custom
    ADS velocity penalty lowered by 20%
  • Vulture Custom Zoom
    ADS velocity penalty lowered by 20%

Rear Grips

  • Increases to ADS velocity lowered by roughly 10%

We have begun the iterative course of of tweaking values on attachments. We would really like the diminution of weapon draw back to be a construct path reasonably than a single attachment selection. As it stands, we really feel most attachments must have their values addressed in some regard to realize this. We are hoping to make some beforehand nonviable choices much less so along with widening total construct selection. This might embody growing upsides or downsides on current attachments. We are additionally actively how we are able to create extra compelling decisions throughout the confines of attachment classes—mainly, muzzles just like the Monolithic and Agency Suppressor.

Given the magnitude of stability adjustments on this patch, we might make some changes shortly after Season 3 launch to make sure the meta is wholesome and steady. As at all times, please proceed to supply your suggestions!
