Warzone 2 & MW2 July 19 patch notes: Dragon’s Breath underbarrel nerf, Temp V reduction, more

Infinity Ward released a minor update that addresses the Dragon’s Breath shotgun attachment in Modern Warfare 2 and reduces the amount of Temp V in Warzone 2.

Season 4 Reloaded added two controversial features that caught the attention of community members. The Corvus Tech Underbarrel lets players equip a Dragon’s Breath shotgun attachment on any eligible weapon.

And in collaboration with Amazon’s The Boys, the Temp V Field Upgrade grants players one of four superpowers: Charge Jump, Electric Shockwave, Teleport, or the increasingly infamous Laser Vision.

Both new features received criticism from players, and Infinity Ward responded accordingly.

Warzone 2 players slam game-altering superpowers

Community members quickly grew tired of getting instantly melted by Homelander’s signature Laser Vision. It didn’t matter how much armor a player had or how ready they were, Laser Vision proved unstoppable.

Players also complained that it was far too easy to find Temp V. The sheer abundance of players with superpowers on Vondel and Ashika Island overwhelmed users.

Infinity Ward heard the complaints loud and clear, reducing the amount of Temp V in a match.

Let’s jump right into what else changed.
