COD Mobile Season 9 balance changes: All weapon nerfs and buffs

Never static, a number of weapons are once again being buffed and nerfed for Call of Duty: Mobile Season 9. Here are the details.
A few seasons ago, Call of Duty: Mobile got a huge weapon balance pass on its huge arsenal of weapons, drastically changing the game's meta.

While changes since then have been less frequent, they still continue as the developers look to make the game as balanced as possible.

With the release of Season 9 in a couple of days and the patch notes out, we now know what is set for a buff or a nerf come release time.

It is quite the list too, for multiplayer and survival game modes, the CR-56 AMAX is getting hit with the nerf hammer, with the newly introduced M13 getting a buff.
