Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0 received yet another update recently. The February 24 patch is focused on balancing changes for weapons and attachments. Battle Royale playlists have also been updated with several bugs squashed.

RPK users would be sad to know that their preferred weapon has received significant nerfs. Its horizontal and initial bullet vertical recoils were increased and damage ranges were decreased. The sprint speed of FTac Recon and movement speed of SO-14 were increased as well. TAQ-V Battle Rifle received several nerfs as its movement speed, muzzle velocity, near damage, and far damage range were all reduced. You can read the highlights of the update below.
