If you've ever encountered someone with the Akimbo Snake Shot revolver combo, you probably lost. The combo, which allows you to dual wield two .357 revolvers (amongst other handguns) added with the Snake Shot attachment, has been devastating.
In the latest Modern Warfare & Warzone patch, Infinity Ward has nerfed the .357 Snake Shot.

Modern Warfare & Warzone patch notes
While the latest Modern Warfare & Warzone patch isn't huge, it does bring an end to those annoying, and extremely overpowered Akimbo Snake Shot revolver combos.
The combo basically turns one revolver into two, with shotgun-like damage at range. Before we get to the patch notes, just check out Reddit user ssieK's 55-second video showcasing the power of the Akimbo Snake Shot revolver combo, which has been plaguing players for weeks.
The Modern Warfare & Warzone patch doesn't go into specifics about the nerf, but it does note a rebalance to .357 Snake Shot damage, and fixes a bug where this damage was too high at long distances, so no more shotgun-rifle-devastation from someone running around with two revolvers.
The patch also holds a few other fixes. Check out the patch notes from Infinity Ward below:
- Tuning all smoke challenges to be a bit more forgiving. This includes the challenge to unlock the Bruen MK9
- Fix to help prevent vehicle exploits
- Various exploit fixes, including Ground War Infected
- GameBattles: Fix for a few issues where players might not be able to join a new match
- Reduced fire delay on the Lightweight and Match Grade trigger attachments on all .357 calibers
- .357 Snake Shot damage rebalance
- Fixed a bug where the damage on the .357 Snake Shot was too high at longer distances
Since the patch is very new, it remains to be seen if these nerfs are enough, as Infinity Ward didn't share specifics.
