The wide range of usable weapons in Warzone 2 often enables each user to create their own play style as they get acclimated with the game. A natural hierarchy is also typically established with these firearms as some are noticeably stronger than others.

Naturally, these weapon rankings are set with the understanding that the damage they deal remains consistent throughout different game modes. However, it seems that one particular piece of equipment can kill enemies quicker in Warzone 2 than in regular multiplayer lobbies.
The X12 Pistol, which is typically the weapon that Operators start with when dropping in to Al Mazrah, is the notorious weapon in question. A CoD data aggregator named TrueGameData recently posted a video demonstrating that the firearm does indeed deal more damage in the battle royale.

The clip shows the content creator heading to an isolated location with a friend in order to test out his theory. The initial results of his speculation proved fruitful as the damage dealt by the pistol immediately displayed a noticeable discrepancy compared to its firepower in multiplayer matches.

From 15 meters out, the X12 hits for 41 in Warzone 2 compared to 29 in regular lobbies. As TrueGameData gets closer to the opposition, the pistol deals progressively more damage until it maxes out at 62 damage dealt per hit at less than nine meters out.
Responses under the video are speculating that the significant difference may have been integrated in order to give all Operators a fighting chance during particular stages of a match. This particular theory becomes even more plausible when factoring in players that respawn from the Gulag.
Starting out and respawning after a Gulag win are some of the most vulnerable periods for a user so the increase firepower would help out tremendously. Whatever the case may be, it seems that this is in fact a design of the game and not merely a glitch.
