Warzone 6 April patch notes: FFAR and AUG nerfs, Rear Grip ADS speed, bug fixes, more
Raven Software has just released patch notes for the latest Warzone update.

The Warzone patch released on 6th April is nerfing two very strong Season 2 weapons, the FFAR and the AUG.

When it comes to the AUG, the weapon's recoil has been increased, for which developers it was necessary as the weapon felt "too easy to stay on target given how lethal it is".

For the FFAR, ADS speed has been decreased, because developers feel that in the previous iteration, the weapon was a bit too good at several roles.

Alongside these nerfs, the update fixes several issues with attachments, including the issue with ADS speed pros not working with Rear Grip attachments.

Warzone 6 April patch notes full patch notes:


  • The Camo Challenges for the “R1 Shadowhunter” now appear correctly for the Geometric, Flora, and Science Camo Categories.


  • Cold War Tactical Rifle Charlie
    • Recoil strength has been increased.
      • Burst weapons ride a fine line between inefficient and oppressive. The intent of this change is to maintain the weapon’s identity of being a powerhouse while making it a bit more difficult to wield. Right now we feel it is too easy to stay on target given how lethal it is. We will continue to monitor the performance of the Tactical Rifle Charlie and make additional changes if necessary.
  • FFAR 1
    • ADS speed has been decreased.
      • The FFAR is a jack of all trades. It has the damage profile and range of an AR as well as the fire rate of an SMG. The FFAR’s wholesale efficacy has it edging out SMGs at ranges we’re not satisfied with. Ideally, the FFAR fulfils the role of a mid-range dominator while falling prey to weapons that excel in short-range engagements. We are bringing the FFAR a bit more in line with what you might expect from an AR—damage and range at the cost of handling.


  • Rear Grip attachments that showed ADS speed pros should now properly increase ADS speed.
  • Fixed a bug with the Groza where the 16.5” CMV Mil-Spec barrel would bypass damage falloff.
  • Fixed a bug with the Ember Sighting Point where the XM4 and AK-47 had their ADS speed increased rather than decreased.
  • Fixed a bug with the Salvo Fast Mag where the FFAR 1 and M16 were not having their ADS speed decreased.
  • The Pelington 703 Wrapped Suppressor effects should now be properly represented in the stat bar.
