Infinity Ward and Raven Software have now launched the latest batch of Modern Warfare 2 patch notes and it surprisingly contains nerfs to three specific Warzone 2 weapons. This includes close-range and armor damage reductions to three popular secondary weapons so players may soon have to start rethinking some of their builds within the battle royale.

Fortunately, primary weapons have been left untouched with this latest update so your best Cronen Squall loadout and best ISO Hemlock loadout should still remain intact. If you want to see what the developers have decided to change, however, then you’ll be able to read the entire list of patch notes below.
