Call of Duty Warzone is arguably the most famous battle royal game. Begun initially as a free-to-play mode for 2019’s Call of Duty Modern Warfare, it has since grown in popularity to become the most popular Call of Duty game and the most played battle royal title.

Originally, Call of Duty Warzone included weapons and operators from Call of Duty Modern Warfare. It has since expanded to include the arsenal of 2020’s Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, and now with the Warzone Pacific Season One update, it has grown to include this year’s Call of Duty Vanguard.

However, with the introduction of a new set of weapons from the Second World War era with Call of Duty Vanguard, the entire weapons roster of Warzone Pacific, including guns from three different Call of Duty games set in different periods, needs to be updated with a balancing patch. This is to maintain gameplay balance in Call of Duty Warzone Pacific and ensure no weapon feels broken.

With that being said, let’s look at the entire weapon balancing update in Call of Duty Warzone Pacific.
