Call of Duty Warzone's latest update isn’t heavy on the content but the May 26 update brings balancing changes to two LMGs, namely, Whitley and Type 11.

The tactical equipment, Stim, has been nerfed. Slide Speed when using Stim has been reduced by 40%. Max Slide Time has been reduced to 1.3 from the previous 1.9 seconds. The Stim effect will be removed if the player takes damage from weapon attacks.
