Warzone devs Raven Software released an update on July 7 that nerfed the NZ-41 and H4 Blixen again and brought bug fixes to Fortune’s Keep and Caldera.

Warzone’s NZ-41 became the most popular Assault Rifle back in Season 3 Reloaded and nerfs throughout Season 4 haven’t affected its popularity. However, changes made in Warzone’s July 7 update could have nerfed the weapon for good.

Here are the full patch notes for Warzone Pacific’s July 7 update that nerfs the NZ-41 and H4 Blixen SMG, and also brings bug fixes to both Caldera and Fortune’s Keep.

NZ-41 and H4 Blixen nerfed in Warzone July 7 update

Warzone’s July 7 update has added more recoil to the NZ-41, nerfing its most powerful attribute. The devs nerfed its recoil recovery by 20%, meaning that there will be more bounce between each shot as it takes longer to center. The 40 Round Klauser mags will have more recoil from now on too.

The H4 Blixen has been one of Warzone’s best SMGs ever since its arrival, and it will now deal lower damage to the torso. While this change doesn’t sound significant, it should bring its TTK more in line with the other SMGs.

Caldera Plunder players will also be delighted to know that they should no longer spawn over Village when fighting at Storage Town.

  • Recoil Recovery decreased by 20% 

Recoil Recovery is the speed in which the screen attempts to return to center after firing each shot. The result of this change is a noticeable difference in recoil intensity for the NZ-41 (VG) and was originally intended to be paired with the last update to the Weapon’s recoil.
