Warzone Patch Notes, June 30: Fara, C58 & Nail Gun Nerfed

Here are the patch notes for the June 30 Warzone update. The FARA, Nail Gun, and C58 have been nerfed. As have BOCW barrels optimized for long-range. These changes are more significant than the community was expecting.  

Warzone Season 4 is finally here, and it’s a hot one. Sweeping balance changes, satellites crashing all over Verdansk, and three great new weapons. One of those three weapons, the MG 82, was clearly a little overpowered and was nerfed within days. But the others, the C58, and the Nail Gun, did not seem as strong. 

They were clearly thought to still be too good though, as was the FARA 83. The C58 and the FARA now have increased recoil, and the preferred barrel for both weapons has had it's counter-recoil effect reduced. This is going to make the weapons much less competitive over distance. 

 

June 30 Patch Notes 

Here are the patch notes direct from Raven: 

Weapons

Assault Rifles 

  • C58 (BOCW)
    • Recoil Slightly Increased
  • FARA 83 (BOCW)
    • Recoil Slightly Increased

Submachine Guns

  • Nail Gun (BOCW)
    • Maximum Damage range decreased by 39%

Attachments 

Barrels

  • Ranger (Assault Rifles except AK-47 (BOCW) & XM4 (BOCW))
    • Vertical Recoil Control decreased from 15% to 10%
  • Takedown (Assault Rifles except for AK-47 (BOCW) & XM4 (BOCW))
    • Horizontal Recoil Control decreased from 15% to 10%
  • Reinforced Heavy / Match Grade / VDV Reinforced (Assault Rifles, Light Machine Guns)
    • Vertical Recoil Control decreased from 7.5% to 5%
    • Horizontal Recoil Control decreased from 7.5% to 5%
  • Task Force / Spetsnaz RPK / CMV Mil-Spec (Assault Rifles, Light Machine Guns)
    • Vertical Recoil Control decreased from 15% to 10%
    • Horizontal Recoil Control decreased from 15% to 10%

These changes are far more than most people expected, while the FARA was admittedly too popular, the C58 felt like it needed more time to flourish. The barrel upgrades are similarly heavy-handed, remember that BOCW rifles were having great difficulty breaking into the long-range meta before their buff. We'll see how these changes pan out, and how the community responds, in the coming days.
