Sledgehammer Games has rolled out a fresh Call of Duty: WWII update for PS4, PC, and Xbox One players today, which tinkers with a number of weapon attributes for the critically acclaimed first-person shooter.

Everyone's favourite boomstick, the sawed-off shotgun, comes out on top with this latest update, receiving a notable boost in both max and mid range stopping power, reload time, and the amount of buckshot required to kill. 

Conversely, the combat shotgun has been nerfed somewhat by reducing the max damage range, although it's still buffed in comparison to its original incarnation at launch. Other weapons that have been tweaked include the FG 42, grease gun, Kar98k, and Lee Enfield.

Finally, Sledgehammer Games has fine-tuned some of the game's maps, with the London Docks CTF flag positions now pushed back and defensive start spawns in S&D on Sainte Marie du Mont also being moved. 

Call of Duty: WWII's The Resistance DLC will hit PS4 on January 30 and arrives on PC and Xbox One at a later date. The expansion includes a bunch of fresh multiplayer maps as well as The Darkest Hour, a new chapter for the game's Nazi Zombies mode. 

Carry on the conversation on the VideoGamer forums!
