Warzone Operator STG 44

Warzone Pacific’s Season 3 Reloaded completely shook up the game with its changes, but the devs are introducing more changes with the June 2 update. Here are the full patch notes.

Players are still getting used to the various changes introduced via the Season 3 Reloaded update, and it seems like more changes are on the way. With a ton of Vanguard weapons at the forefront of the Warzone meta lately, it’s no surprise to see the devs nerf the most overpowered weapon in the game.

While the weapon balancing changes will catch the attention of most players, the devs also issued bug fixes that are set to improve the overall Warzone gameplay experience.

Warzone update nerfs STG 44, Throwing Knife, & Restock

Players will be happy to learn that the June 2 update has nerfed what many were calling the most broken weapon in the game. The STG44 had its damage range reduced from 30.1 meters to 27.9 meters.

It remains to be seen if this nerf will be enough to stop the STG’s dominance as the best weapon in Warzone at the moment. In addition, the Throwing Knife Lethal Equipment will now deal 200 damage instead of 300 damage to the upper torso. This is a major nerf, but ultimately a necessary one to match the health increase across Warzone.

The third major nerf of this update went to the Restock Perk, which had its recharge time increased from 25 seconds to 30 seconds.
