In the latest Warzone update on December 15, there have been a number of bug fixes as well as an update on the Ricochet anti-cheat system and nerfs to some of the most popular weapons.

Warzone Pacific dropped earlier in December with the new Caldera map, fully integrating Call of Duty: Vanguard into the popular battle royale hit.

There have been a number of updates both big and small since then. They promised a fix and eventual removal of the bloom mechanic in the December 10 update, as well as numerous weapon balancing changes.

Here are the full patch notes for the Warzone Pacific update on December 15 — which rolled out in two stages and include changes to ground loot and nerfs to popular meta guns like the Automaton, Cooper Carbine, BAR, and Top Break.
