Warzone 2 Season 2 is gearing up to feature some significant changes, one of which could be to the game’s meta as the devs look to balance some of the weapons – which could mean the end of the RPK & Fennec 45 meta.

The early patch notes are in for Warzone 2 Season 2 and while they aren’t as comprehensive as some players would like, they pull the back the curtain slightly into the devs’ minds and what their plans might be moving forward.

It feels like many of the changes that made Warzone 2 feel unique are slowly being reverted as the game transitions to its next phase. Gulags are set to feature 1v1 encounters again and there will be significant changes made to the game’s movement.

In the early patch notes though, the devs make it clear that weapons will be undergoing some maintenance with the new season in mind. Meaning it could be high noon for the meta wonder duo of the RPK LMG and Fennec 45 SMG.

Call of Duty’s ‘The Path to Season 02’ blog dissects a lot of the areas that the devs will seek to target for Warzone 2 Season 2 – and Modern Warfare 2 Season 2 as well.

One of the most curious sections concerns ‘Weapon Balance’ and the devs had this to say: “Weapon balance is something we are always analyzing, and we’ll be balancing Weapons for Season 02 just like any other seasonal or mid-season update. Details on Weapon balancing can be found in the upcoming Season 02 launch Patch Notes. We’re excited to discuss some changes to armor below that will make for more consistent engagement in Warzone 2.0.”

Now, while it’s not a direct statement that the RPK and Fennec are going to be fixed, it’s no secret to anyone that they are probably the two most selected weapons for a loadout in Warzone 2.

The RPK has a large mag, can be turned into a straight-firing laser, and can decimate players. On the other hand, the Fennec doesn’t give anyone a chance at close range due to its outrageous fire rate and unwavering accuracy.

We’ll have to treat this as rather speculative for now, but don’t be surprised to see the devs finally make some long-awaited changes to the game’s most destructive loadout.
