CoD: Warzone FARA 83 nerf is finally here in the new Season 4 update

The new Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4 update contains various weapon and barrel attachment balance tweaks. Most notably, the FARA 83 Assault Rifle is finally getting a nerf that should stop it from being so overpowered. Raven Software’s complete CoD: Warzone 1.39 update patch notes have all the details on everything new.

Call of Duty: Warzone update 1.39 is out today, June 30, 2021. Players can download the new CoD: Warzone patch right now on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.

Assault Rifle (AR) balance tweaks

  • FARA 83 nerf — Recoil increased slightly
  • C58 nerf — Recoil increased slightly

Submachine Gun (SMG) balance tweaks

  • Nail Gun nerf — Maximum Damage range decreased by 39%

Barrel Attachment balance tweaks

  • Ranger barrel nerf — Vertical recoil control decreased from 15% to 10%
  • Takedown barrel nerf — Horizontal recoil control decreased from 15% to 10%
  • Reinforced Heavy/Match Grade/VDV Reinforced barrel nerfs — Vertical and horizontal recoil control decreased from 7.5% to 5%
  • Task Force/Spetsnaz RPK/CMV Mil-Spec barrel nerfs — Vertical and horizontal recoil control decreased from 15% to 10%

Speaking on the Call of Duty: Warzone Nail Gun nerf, Raven Software notes that the SMG would “consistently dispatch foes at the same speed or faster than Shotguns at almost twice their effective range.” The firearm was incredibly OP, though many players didn’t encounter it due to the fact it isn’t easily accessible in-game.

Users were much more likely to run into the FARA 83 AR, which, thankfully, gets a slight recoil increase in the 1.39 CoD: Warzone patch. The C58 AR gets the same treatment, so be sure to adjust any saved loadouts accordingly. Need a couple of suggestions? The recent FN Scar 17 buff makes it a good candidate for a replacement Assualt Rifle. Anyone feeling adventurous might want to check out the all-new MG 82 LMG instead.
