Warzone Pacific December 15 patch notes: Recoil adjustments, Cooper Carbine nerf, and more
Following the release of the highly anticipated Warzone Pacific update, Raven Software has paid close attention to the meta and how all the new weaponry affected it.

As a result, just mere days since the update went live, the developers have issued a new patch to fix certain issues identified with the Vanguard weapons, and a general adjustment to recoil patterns across the board. 

The looting has also been changed. While no specifics were given, simply referring to the change as an "adjustment" in weapon spans, ground loot, supply boxes, and contract rewards have been tuned. 

Let's not beat around the bush and see everything the 15th December Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific patch has in store for players.
