Raven Software has released the 1.35 update for Call of Duty: Warzone on all platforms on April 19, which delivers on welcome promises the devs had previously made.

After Call of Duty veteran and Warzone streamer CouRage tweeted Raven Software his wishlist of Warzone changes, the developers responded. They confirmed that the community’s feedback is being acknowledged and promised changes to the Roze skin, as well as nerfs to the over-powered Akimbo Sykov Pistols.

On April 19, Raven Software released the 1.35 update for Warzone, which includes the promised nerf for the Sykov Pistols, which were added to Modern Warfare & Warzone in a quiet update on April 15. It also removes the RC-XD from Buy Stations and fixes the bug with certain Modern Warfare snipers scopes not having glint in Warzone.

This new update comes ahead of the planned Season 3 update for Black Ops Cold War & Warzone, which is set for April 22. More information on Season 3 and what’s included will be announced as we get closer.

Warzone 1.35 update patch notes

Raven Software has shared the patch notes for the 1.35 update for Warzone on April 19.


  • The RC-XD has been removed from Buy Stations and is now only available via Containment Monitors.
  • Fixed an issue causing players to be unable to equip Armor Plates after activating certain Killstreaks or Field Upgrades.
  • The Containment Protocol missiles will no longer land in the Play Area.
  • The Containment Protocol missiles have had their sound effects volume reduced.
  • Fixed a bug causing Loadout Drops to block movement and projectiles after the crate collapses.
  • King Slayer Trios – The Gas Circle will no longer move completely outside of the Play Area.


  • The Swatt Master Blueprint now correctly displays the Electric Dismemberment icon.


  • Fixed a bug with the Modern Warfare Sniper Scope and Variable Zoom Scope where they were not displaying glint.
  • Fixed a bug with Modern Warfare weapon perks where they were not having their intended effects. 
  • Fixed a bug with the Bullseye Reticle where it would sometimes cause frame rate issues or the disappearance of UI elements.
  • Sorokin 140mm Auto (Sykov)
    • Hip spread increased
  • Akimbo (Sykov)
    • Movement speed reduced by 5%
  • 80 Round Drums (Sykov)
    • Movement speed reduced by 5%

Raven further clarified in a tweet that the damage reduction of 25% is when using both the Sorokin 140mm auto & Akimbo together. Using them separately, there is no reduction of damage.

Raven Software also promised changes to the AUG, M16, and FFAR 1, so we can expect these final nerfs to arrive in the Season 3 update.
