Warzone Season 3: All weapon buffs and nerfs ft. M16/AUG/FFAR and more

Season 3 of Warzone has changed up the gun meta with several of the game's favourite guns being nerfed. Find out the details here.

Call of Duty: Warzone Season 3 is the most transformative yet seen in the game, with a drastically different Verdansk set to greet players and a shaking up of the weapon meta that will have far-reaching consequences, especially when it comes to what gun is in your hands.

Not only are we getting two weapons from the outset, and a further four down the line, there is also changes being made to how some perform with a series of buffs and nerfs hitting some of the most favoured guns in the game. As well as attachment changes that could make all your previous loadouts redundant.

While it is yet to be seen just how much those attachment changes affect the meta, what is clearer is the way those aforementioned buffs and nerfs will. So without further ado here are the winners and losers of Season 3.
