New Call of Duty: Warzone Update Nerfs the Game's Best Gun

A new Call of Duty: Warzone update has nerfed the game's best gun. A few weeks ago, Raven Software released an update for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC game that nerfed a smattering of weapons, including the DMR 14, the game's most powerful gun at the time, and a gun COD players were calling out to be nerfed. And it was, but it wasn't enough. Fast-forward a few weeks and now it's been nerfed again.

In addition to the DMR 14, Raven Software has also once again made adjustments to the Type 63, though not to the same extent as the former. In addition to this, the Mac 10, Burst Pistol, Tactical Equipment, and Challenges are also all mentioned in the patch notes, as are a few different grips.

Below, you can check out the entire patch notes for the January 13 update, courtesy of Raven Software:
