A new update for Call of Duty: Warzone is now available on all platforms. This patch is much-needed as it improved the viability of some Vanguard weapons and adjusted the Armored Truck.

According to the developers from Raven Software, some weapons from Call of Duty: Vanguard that dropped into Warzone have struggled to perform on par with their peers. To increase their viability, some changes have to be made.

The Assault Rifle Alpha, for example, has its headshot damage multiplier increased to 1.58, maximum damage increased to 33, and minimum damage increased to 30.

In addition, the Armaguerra 43 SMG has its headshot damage multiplier increased to 1.58, minimum damage increased to 19, and neck damage multiplier increased to 1.32.

Call of Duty: Warzone’s latest patch also nerfed the Armored Truck. The Armored Truck is a vehicle reinforced with armor plating and has a turret mounted on top of the cabin. That said, this truck’s HP and resistances have been decreased to be almost in line with the Cargo Truck. On top of that, the turret’s damage is decreased by 40%.
