Warzone devs Raven Software have released an update on June 30 that brings Lootable Perks to Fortune’s Keep, finally nerfs the NZ-41, and buffs some of Vanguard’s Sniper Rifles. Here are the full Warzone June 30 update patch notes.

Warzone players have been crying out for the NZ-41 to be nerfed ever since it became the most popular weapon in Season 3 Reloaded. This change has finally arrived with Season 4‘s June 30 update, which also nerfs the most popular Assault Rifle attachments, nerfs SMGs, and buffs Vanguard Snipers.

Here’s everything included in Warzone’s June 30 update patch notes.

Major Warzone weapons nerfs: NZ-41, H4 Blixen, more

A ton of the most popular and powerful weapons have been nerfed in Warzone’s June 30 update, with nerfs to the NZ-41, H4 Blixen, Marco 5, and UGM-8 having the biggest impact.

The NZ-41 has had its torso damage and recoil control nerfed, so it should no longer be the long-range laser beam it once was. It’s not just the NZ-41 that’ll be affected by the June 30 patch though, as Lengthened Ammo, the MX Silencer, and m1941 Hand Stop have all been nerfed.

The UGM-8 was set to become meta thanks to “insane TTK,” but it seems Raven nipped that in the bud by nerfing its bullet velocity and damage. The top SMGs, the H4 Blixen and Marco 5, have also had their damage range and mobility reduced.

It’s not all bad news for Vanguard’s Warzone guns though, as the 3-Line, Kar98k, and Type 99 have all had their bullet velocity increased.
