Call of Duty: Warzone Season 3 was released a few hours ago, and there's a lot of new content for players to enjoy with the new update.

However, the major focus for the developers has been to improve the in-game balancing aspects to provide players with an optimal quality of life in COD: Warzone Season 3. Having said that, a total of 11 weapons and 18 assorted attachments were hit with balancing changes with the update for season three.

Apart from these balancing changes, the developers have also introduced various new weapons in COD: Warzone Season 3. Additionally, the developers have also confirmed the introduction of Nvidia DLSS to COD: Warzone for RTX-supported Nvidia GPU cards.

Needless to say, the new DLSS feature will only apply to those players who are using an RTX-supported GPU card.
