Ah, the sweet intoxicating smell of new balance changes we pretend to like before players find a new broken loadout that'll make us hate our existence.

COD Mobile Season 8 will bring a lot in terms of weapon buffs and nerfs, but to individual guns and entire archetypes, as the dev team will introduce two new weapons that'll shake the meta up -- the M13 assault rifle and R9-0 shotgun.
