Nerves Cronen Squall

Despite the fact that the Cronen Squall I’ve had nerves latelyit has always been one of the best long-range automatic weapons in the game.

Activision is taking an even bigger hit to the power of the Cronen Squall this time around, nerfing the weapon’s maximum damage, its close and mid-range damage, and damage multipliers for headshots, among other changes.

Hopefully these changes will finally allow other ARs to thrive.

Auto Nerves X13

THE X13 Automatic Pistols stood out amongst the rest of the pack for their ridiculous kill time and versatility.

This high TTK caught the attention of the developers, who removed the weapon’s maximum damage and implemented a bug fix that increased its overall damage.

Nerves Akimbo Basilisk

Possibly the best automatic pistols in Warzone, the Basil on the hips the setup is one of the best for taking down enemies. Or, rather, was.

Activision is nerfing the full damage profile of weapons so they perform closer to what they were originally intended for.
