The long-awaited nerf to the MTZ Interceptor has finally dropped in Warzone on January 11, bringing its reign of terror to an end!

With Warzone developer Raven Software going on a Christmas break, there hasn’t been a weapon balance patch in Warzone for almost a month. Fortunately, Raven has still been listening to players about what guns are overpowered!

Over the festive period and into the new year, The MTZ Interceptor has been dominating long-range gunfights. With great range, accuracy, and the ability to down an enemy with just two shots, this marksman rifle has been dominating lobbies.

Luckily, Raven Software has just dropped a nerf to the MTZ Interceptor in a minor update on January 11, 2024, alongside another Snake Shot Nerf. Here are all of the details you need to know!

MTZ Interceptor Nerf Details

The small January 11 update for Warzone included a much-needed nerf to the MTZ Interceptor. The changes for this gun are as follows:

  • Max Damage reduced to 85, down from 95
  • Min Damage reduced to 78, down from 84

This will ensure that it takes 3 headshots or 4 shots to the body to down an enemy with the MTZ Interceptor.

Another Snake Shot Nerf

The January 11 update also included another nerf for the Snake Shot ammunition, which turns the Tyr revolver into a deadly shotgun. The change is:

  • Damage per pellet at max range reduced to 12, down from 34

This massively decreases the Snake Shot Tyr’s range, essentially making it useless.
