Raven Software currently dropped the new Call of Duty Warzone update and describes it with the complete set of Warzone Patch Notes. We have seen there are also some notable changes that are just not only making gameplay adjustments and up fixing but also revealing such as the powerful Armored Truck and buffs have set of the weapons come from Call of Duty: Vanguard.

At the beginning of the gameplay, the Armored Truck suit watches about the health and the resistance levels decreasing. There is the turret also has been nerved, too and along with the damage just decreased by a whopping 40%. Raven Software said that the Armored Truck is very simple and strong that felt to be ‘Oppressive’ for the players just trying to increase against it. Now all the vehicles will remain a “powerhouse”, Raven said,”| now it will become more in line along with Warzone’s such other vehicles.

For the weapon, Raven declared guns from Vanguard that are in the warzone are also “struggling to perform on par” along with peers, and this latest update targets to address that.

Shortly, we can say that Vanguard weapons in the warzone are just getting buffed seeking the help of the players just using them to complete it better. The AS44’s recoil also decreased along with the maximum damage range to enhance. The assault Rifle Alpha reveals the buff along with a headshot that damages such multiplayer and also the maximum increased damage. The Krasink 220mm rapid watches such a buff on the sprint to fire speed and getting the movement of the speed that increases naturally.
