The Modern Warfare and Warzone patch released today is relatively small. By and large, it mainly goes after bug fixes and balance adjustments. For frequent players, the most important change to note involves the popular .357 Snake Shot. The overall damage for the Snake Shot has been rebalanced (though Infinity Ward hasn’t said how), and a bug that resulted in higher-than-expected damage across longer distances has been fixed.

For players going after smoke challenges, the news is good. The developers have made some adjustments to make them less challenging. Thankfully, that includes the challenge needed to unlock the Bruen MK9. The team has also reduced the fire delay for trigger attachments on all .357 weapons, specifically for Lightweight and Match Grade triggers.

Last but not certainly not least, the May 7 Warzone update includes several bug fixes. These include fixes meant to “help prevent” vehicle exploits as well as other exploit adjustments for modes such as Ground War infected.
