Warzone 2 released the full July 24 patch notes – which included several weapon adjustments and bug fixes.

Warzone 2 has unveiled another patch that has nerfed popular weapons such as X13, Basilisk, and the Cronen Squall. The featured weapon changes include decreasing the Cronen Squall and X13’s Maximum Damage.

Warzone 2 also posted a patch on July 17 – which addressed bugs relating to Armor Plates and Temp V.

Now, the title has made further adjustments for many weapons and attachment options. Here are all the changes coming in the July 24 update.

Cronen Squall nerfs

Despite the fact that the Cronen Squall got some nerfs recently, it has still been one of the best long-range auto weapons in the game.

Activision is taking an even bigger swing at the Cronen Squall’s power this time, nerfing the weapon’s max damage, it’s close-range and mid-range damage, and the damage multipliers for headshots among other changes.

Hopefully, these changes will finally allow some other ARs to thrive.

X13 Auto nerfs

The X13 Auto pistols have stood out among the rest of the pack for their ridiculous time-to-kill and versatility.

That high TTK has drawn the attention of the developers, who took down the weapon’s maximum damage as well as implemented a bug fix that elevated it’s overall damage.

Akimbo Basilisk nerfs

Maybe the best automatic pistols in Warzone, the akimbo Basilisk setup is one of the best for mowing down enemies. Or, rather, was.

Activision is nerfing the guns’ full damage profile so that they function closer to how they were intially intended to.
