Thanks to Warzone 2’s December 19 update, players can purchase their Loadout Weapons at Buy Stations for much cheaper. Here’s an overview of all the changes included in the patch notes.

The steady rollout of Warzone 2 updates continue to flow following the major Season 1 Reloaded update. Yet another update arrived on December 19 and the devs aimed to eliminate several of the game’s most prominent bugs.

Players had been calling for frequent updates to address the state of the game. Warzone 2’s December 19 update patch notes indicate a major change to the cost of Loadout Weapons at Buy Stations so let’s take a look below.

Warzone 2 devs drastically reduce cost of Loadout Weapons at Buy Stations

The Warzone 2 devs introduced a major change with the December 19 update that is sure to shake up Season 1 Reloaded. Players will finally be able to get their hands on their Loadout Weapons with greater ease after the Buy Station cost for a single one was reduced from $5,000 to $2,500.

This change essentially results in the ability to obtain two Primary weapons from your custom loadouts for $5,000. Before the change, this would set each player back $10,000. It seems the devs were in agreement that this was simply too steep a price to pay.

The change will surely make Loadout Weapons more accessible across Warzone 2. This alleviates one of the game’s biggest complaints as players expressed their frustration with not being able to get their hands on Loadout Weapons early on in matches.

Here are the rest of the changes and bug fixes addressed in Warzone 2’s December 19 update. The Global section pertains to changes that impact both Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2.
