Raven Software just released a surprise update for Warzone that nerfs the DMR 14, the MAC 10 blueprint, the Diamatti, and the Typ 63. They have also fixed the unlimited Tactical or Stim glitch!

The DMR 14 has dominated the game since its integration into Warzone and has already caused many players to abandon Warzone for the time being. Even the first nerf didn’t change that much. The return of the Stim-Glitch has certainly not made things any better, either.


Raven Software has now released an update for Warzone that addresses all of the aforementioned issues.

Here are the Patch Notes that you’re all wondering about...

DMR Nerf & Stim Glitch Fix

DMR 14

  • Penetrating power reduced from Sniper to Assault Rifle
  • Damage drop updated: 55 damage before and 48 damage after 750 units (70% reduced from former 2500 units).
  • Recoil moderately increased for second and third shots, slightly increased for all following.
  • Damage multipliers adjusted: Headshot damage after 750 units now below 100, however Torso reduced from 1.1 to 1.01.
  • Foregrip no longer reduces vertical recoil, but reduces horizontal by 30% instead of 20%.
  • Field agent foregrip: vertical recoil reduced by 25% instead of 35%, horizontal by 30% instead of 35%.

MAC 10

  • The stats of the Gallantry blueprint for the MAC 10 have been adjusted to match those of the normal MAC 10.

Type 63

  • Penetrating power reduced from Sniper to Assault Rifle.
  • Damage drop updated: 60 damage before and 45 damage after 900 units (55% reduced from former 2000 units).
  • Foregrip no longer reduces vertical recoil, but reduces horizontal by 30% instead of 20%.
  • Spetsnaz grip: vertical recoil reduced by 30% instead of 45%, horizontal by 40% instead of 45%.


  • Maximum damage reduced from 45 to 40.
  • Akimbo: all damage multipliers set to 1.

Tactical Gadgets

  • Players no longer receive infinite tactical gadgets if they drop their weapon while pre-cooking a grenade (Stim glitch fixed).


  • Seasonal challenges are now displayed and fulfilled as intended.

We haven’t had a chance to test the new update ourselves yet, but hope it finally fixes the DMR 14 & MAC 10 meta. What do you think of the surprise update? Is Warzone playable, and even fun again?
