The Call of Duty: Warzone Season Four Reloaded update has arrived and it brings with it the “biggest balance update in the history of Warzone.”
As detailed by Raven Software, these changes are the studio’s “first major step towards increasing the average Time-to-Kill within Warzone.”
“It is important to note that these Weapon adjustments were not made in a vacuum,” Raven wrote. “When evaluating an individual change, some may seem quite drastic, but they were made holistically and in a way that supported a lock-step increase in average TTK across multiple Weapon categories.
“Torso Multipliers were a considerable focus of these changes with how often they would act as flat damage increases given how consistently that location could be hit. With reductions to these multipliers, we are placing a bigger emphasis on precision — a move which we feel is ultimately healthy for the game.”
Raven continued to discuss how, statistically, there will always be a “best weapon,” as that is the “nature of a competitive game.” However, Raven promises it will make sure that these best weapons won’t stay that way forever.
“Statistically, there will always be a ‘best weapon’. That is the nature of a competitive game,” Raven said. “Players will seek out and employ any advantage they can, regardless of how miniscule it may be. We will take great care to ensure that the ‘best weapon’ never overstays its welcome and has effectiveness that scales with the skill of the handler.
“Conversely, there are also a great deal of players who prefer a myriad of options to choose from. Our goal is to provide exactly that. We will continue to compress outliers, both over and underperforming, until each Weapon is viable at the very least. We do not want players to feel they are at a distinct disadvantage for not conforming to the generally accepted ‘best weapon’.”
The team will be closely monitoring Weapon performance to ensure the game is in a “healthy state” following these changes, which Raven has deemed the biggest in Warzone’s history.
Alongside these balance changes, Season Four Reloaded will also bring with it a host of bug fixes, a new Zombies map in Mauer Der Toten, a new multiplayer map in Rush (6v6), new weapons, multiplayer modes, a new operator, a new Warzone mode in Payload, and much more.
