Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0 update adjusts weapon balance and AI
The Season 1 Reloaded update is now live for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0.
For Modern Warfare 2 players, this update makes it so XP tokens can now be activated while in-game, adds loss protection for joining in progress, and introduces Toggle vs. Hold for the Ping Wheel.
This update also makes adjustments to several weapons, including a small nerf for the Kastov-74u, a buff for the MX9 when using the 32-round magazine, and an increase in movement speed and far damage for the Vel 47 SMG. Additionally, several changes have been made to vehicles, including an increase in health and damage resistance for the UTV and an increase in damage done by A.I to both LTV versions.
While in Warzone 2.0, a number of changes have been made to AI to make them less dangerous. Following the update, the number of active Strongholds has increased, AI deals less damage, and the number of enemy units in each site has been reduced.
Finally, eliminated players can now request help from enemy players and random perks will be granted after multiple successful extractions in DMZ. Read the full patch notes here.
