CR-56 AMAX & FARA 83 Nerf Coming in Next Warzone Update

The CR-56 AMAX and FARA 83 are two of the most powerful guns in Warzone right now, but they are in line for a nerf!

Warzone players are always searching for the next meta weapon. While Raven Software has done a great job balancing all of the weapons in Warzone recently, there are still a couple that need some adjustments.

Since the Season 3 update nerfed the FFAR, AUG, and M16, players have gravitated towards two weapons – the CR-56 AMAX and the FARA 83.

However, the patch notes for the April 28th Warzone update revealed that Raven will balance both of these, along with another meta SMG in an upcoming update.

Upcoming Warzone Balancing Update in Season 3

Warzone players absolutely love the weapon balancing in Season 3 so far, so the news of an upcoming balancing patch has come as a surprise.

As part of the April 28th Warzone update patch notes, Raven Software announced that some upcoming weapon balancing changes, including a nerf to the CR-56 AMAX and FARA 83. It says:

A sneak peek at some upcoming changes…

– Balance adjustments to the CR-56 AMAX, FARA 83, and Bullfrog

– Changes to ADS Firing Speed on Cold War attachments.

Raven Software

Many players saw a possible FARA 83 nerf coming as it is the most broken gun in Warzone Season 3. However, nerfs to the CR-56 AMAX and Bullfrog are less popular.

Does the CR-56 AMAX Need A Nerf in Warzone?

The CR-56 AMAX is a high-risk, high reward gun because of its difficult recoil. If you can master the high recoil then you can get very quick TTK at any range.

However, it could do with a slight reduction to its damage or increased horizontal recoil to stop it from being the dominant long-range AR.

Make sure to use the best CR-56 AMAX loadout in Warzone before the rifle gets a nerf.

Meanwhile, many players outright think that the Bullfrog doesn’t need any nerf at all. Although, this could just be a minor tweak to the headshot multiplier as the SMG kills extremely fast with headshots.

The insane headshot damage is why JGOD predicted the this Bullfrog loadout would be the next meta SMG in Warzone.

On the other hand, the totally overpowered movement speed of Cold War rifles in Warzone will finally be addressed. Nobody can really have any complaints about that.

Overall, it looks like Raven has done very well recently to balance the game and the upcoming CR-56 AMAX and Fara 83 nerf will help continue that. Let’s hope that this update arrives soon!

Warzone Season 3 Downtown

Warzone players are having one major problem with weapons at the moment though. The Warzone Season 3 floor loot weapons are terrible.

In addition to the AMAX and FARA nerfs, the upcoming Warzone update could bring a new way to traverse Verdansk. A Warzone leak has revealed a new ‘Red Door’ fast travel system.

Finally, in case you missed it, there’s big Call of Duty news. Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer Remastered could be releasing this year!
