On top of that, there are also three new weapons – the TR-76 Geist, ISO 9mm SMG, and Dual Kamas melee axes. The two guns are available immediately via the battle pass and should jump right into the top end of the meta amid a whole host of weapon changes.

The popular ISO Hemlock and Kastov 762 have both been hit with a swift nerf, as the devs have tweaked their damage multipliers decreased. The Kastov has also had it’s close-range damage nerfed, but has seen its close damage range increased.

On the flip side, the Lachmann-762 has been given a little bit of love and had all of its damage multipliers increased. Additionally, every other battle rifle bar the Cronen Squall – which has been nerfed – has been buffed in one way or another. So, that’s good news for battle rifle users.
