Warzone Krig 6 nerfed

Raven Software has released a new Game Settings Update for Call of Duty: Warzone on August 5. This new Game Settings update brings a small number of changes.

The Krig 6 has been the most dominant and popular weapon since Warzone Season 4 Reloaded, but the August 5 update is set to change that.

The new update brings a significant nerf to Black Ops Cold War’s Krig 6, as well as Modern Warfare’s newly released CX-9 SMG.

Warzone Krig 6 nerfed & CX-9 buffed

Although we’re fast approaching August 12’s Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 5, Raven Software has treated fans to two surprise updates this week. First, the long-awaited CX-9 and the Soap Operator bundle finally arrived, and now Raven has released a small, but likely meta-changing, balance update.

In this surprise update, the Krig 6 received an impactful nerf. This weapon was known for its extremely high accuracy and ability to dominate at range. While it still remains as accurate as before, its Lower Torso Multiplier and Maximum Damage Range have been hit.

The Krig 6 will still be able to melt enemies at medium range, but it’ll likely struggle in those long-distance engagements. The C58 Assault Rifle has been a close 2nd place in terms of effectiveness, so it could become the meta once again.

And another surprising tweak, the CX-9 has been buffed. Both its mid damage range and Headshot multiplier have been increased, so the CX-9’s place appears to have been solidified as more of a long-range SMG, that’ll be perfect to pair with Sniper Rifles.

You can check out the exact values below.

Warzone August 5 Update Patch Notes

  • Krig 6 (BOCW)
    • Lower Torso Multiplier decreased from 1.1 to 1
    • Maximum Damage Range decreased from 1500 to 1400
  • CX-9 (MW)
