Infinity Ward has released a sweeping weapon balance update as part of today’s big Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone patch – and the Grau has finally been nerfed.
The Grau was the undisputed most-popular weapon in Warzone, and with good reason. This devastating, meta-dominating assault rifle is easy to handle, easy to control, and powerful at a variety of distances. It had come to dominate battle royale – to the point where most players would call it in – or at least try to call it in – via a loadout drop.
But Infinity Ward – as promised – has taken a look at the Grau and significantly nerfed it. Not only has its damage range been reduced, but it’s had a slight increase to high frequency recoil, and reduced recoil compensation and decreased range on the popular Tempus 26.4″ Archangel and FSS 20.8″ Nexus barrel attachments.
