A small update arrived to Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare 3 on June 11. The patch notes include a major nerf to the crossbow in battle royale, while there are some bug fixes and killstreak adjustments in multiplayer.

The crossbow has been a popular choice in Season 4 of Warzone, and now the developer has nerfed the Blastcap 20″ bolts attachment, which was making the weapon so powerful. The stuck damage of the bolts is decreased from 200 to 110, the inner damage is decreased from 150 to 110, and the outer damage is reduced from 50 to 35.

Additionally, thermobaric grenades are removed from Gulag loadouts, and an issue was fixed that previously prevented players from controlling the train on Urzikstan after it was hit by a Bunker Buster streak.

For Modern Warfare 3, the update includes a few adjustments to killstreaks. Survivors in the Infected game mode can now earn the DNA Bomb for a 25 killstreak, and an issue was fixed with the Swarm streak which previously caused drones to not patrol on the Emergency and Tokyo maps. Stats for the I.M.S. streak should also be properly showing in the Combat Record now.

The JAK Atlas Conversion Kit for the AMR9 submachine gun received an update across both Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone, which corrects an issue that caused more damage than intended when bullets hit the helmet area of an operator’s head.

The full patch notes for Warzone and Modern Warfare 3 can be found below, as shared by Activision.
