Call Of Duty: Warzone Patch Nerfs The DMR 14

The overpowered weapon has finally been nerfed in the popular battle royale game; see the full patch notes.


Activision has followed through on its promise to nerf the DMR, which was causing some issues and headaches in the battle royale game Call of Duty: Warzone.

The newest patch is now live, and it reduces the headshot damage of the DMR 14 while also increasing recoil to deliver an overall nerf to the weapon. The Type 63 has also been nerfed with the same adjustments through the patch notes.

The Mac-10, meanwhile, sees its headshot multiplier decreased, while players using dual pistols will discover more hip fire spread and a decreased damage range. All of these nerfs and adjustments are specific to Warzone, not Black Ops Cold War.

Here are the full patch notes:

January 6 Warzone Patch Notes:

  • DMR 14 - Reduced headshot damage, increased recoil
  • Type 63 - Reduced headshot damage, increased recoil
  • Mac-10 - Decreased headshot multiplier

These issues popped up in Warzone with the launch of Season 1, which brought guns from Black Ops Cold War into Warzone.
