Warzone Pacific’s Caldera has finally replaced Verdansk, with the tropical paradise offering Call of Duty players an entirely new battle royale experience. However, it hasn’t been without teething problems, and Raven Software has released a new patch addressing weapon balance and bug fixes.

Warzone’s December 15 update has nerfed the incredibly accurate Automaton Assault Rifle and Bren LMG, introduced a further anti-cheat update, and included various bug fixes.

Here are the full Warzone Pacific December 15 update patch notes.

Weapon adjustments

Warzone Automaton nerfed

Gold Automaton in Call of Duty Vanguard

The Automaton had been dominating the early days of Warzone Pacific thanks to its incredibly low recoil and rapid-fire rate. However, the December 15 update has upped the recoil and reduced mobility.

The Automaton’s overall recoil has been increased and the extremely popular 6.5mm Sakura 75 Round Drums now has decreased Move Speed and ADS Move Speed, making you less mobile while using them. The 8mm Klauser Rifle 50 Round Mags have also had their mobility decreased.
