Warzone Season 3 Reloaded: All weapon buffs and nerfs

Today's release of Call of Duty: Warzone Season 3 Reloaded has followed that trend, we already got a look at the Black Ops Cold War changes and now its time for the battle royale and again you may find yourself looking for a new primary in Season 3 Reloaded especially if you run a sub-machine gun.
