Now Playing: CoD: Warzone - Operation Monarch Launch Trailer feat. Godzilla vs. Kong

The update includes significant tuning to Vanguard's magazine attachments, which increases the firepower of low-caliber magazines. Sledgehammer Games says this balancing was introduced because magazine attachments with a low caliber have struggled to perform on the same level as their high-caliber counterparts. These changes include a damage buff to the STG44 assault rifle's 7.62 Gorenko 30 Round Mags attachment, while the Automaton assault rifle's 5.6mm 25 Round Mags attachment received a damage buff and increased fire rate bonus. Additionally, the 7.62 Gorenko 32 Round Mags attachment was also buffed for submachine guns like the Sten and MP-40.

The developer also made a change to Vanguard's new Trophy System Field Upgrade. The Skal Crusher melee weapon, which was recently added to Vanguard with a weapon unlock challenge, can no longer be destroyed by a Trophy System when thrown.

In other Call of Duty news, Godzilla and King Kong are arriving in Warzone on May 11 for the Operation Monarch event. Activision has detailed the Operation Monarch limited-time mode and rewards for this titan-sized event.

The full Vanguard patch notes and list of magazine attachment changes can be found below, as shared by Sledgehammer Games.

Weapons

Magazine Attachments with a low-caliber have struggled to perform on par with their high-caliber counterparts. Today’s update increases the firepower of low-caliber Magazines so that players can equip these Attachments for the handling benefits while maintaining similar bullets-to-kill. Damage values are crafted to be most effective with shots to the head and torso. Decreases in range will favor close-range gunfights.
