Warzone 2
Talal Musa Updated on by

Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2 Season One’s latest patch notes are here and bring with them a number of tweaks and improvements to the battle royale mode, as well as a number of bug fixes.

Early Black Friday deals are starting to go live on Amazon & Best Buy. Big brands such as Lenovo and Samsung are also starting to offer Black Friday discounts early, with many more to follow.

A curious change, however, has come in the form of a change to armor piercing ammunition. Specifically, removing the damage multiplier against armored opponents.

It’s bit of a baffling one, as obviously you would expect armour-piercing ammo to work well against foes wearing armour. It’s not known if this temporary to fix a bug, or otherwise – but we’ll keep an eye on it and see how things pan out.

One welcomed fix comes in the form of an improvement to Proximity chat, where an issue prevented some players from hearing others. Infinity Ward has also fixed collision issues with various elements across the game that allowed players to exploit/peek/shoot through them.
