Warzone June 30 Update Patch Notes – Nail Gun & FARA 83 Nerf

There’s a new June 30 update in Warzone Season 4, and it’s making some big changes to overpowered guns.

If you, like many other Warzone fans, believe that the Nail Gun is way too powerful in Warzone, you’ll be happy to see the new June 30 patch notes. Thanks to a quick change by Raven Software, the company is making big strides to keep the player base happy.

The other headline nerf in the update is to the FARA 83, despite Raven changing it just a few weeks ago. This gun has taken over the long-range meta in Warzone so much that it quickly became the most popular weapon in the game!

Warzone June 30 Update Patch Notes


Assault Rifles

  • C58 (BOCW)
    • Recoil increased slightly
  • FARA 83 (BOCW)
    • Recoil increased slightly

Submachine Guns

  • Nail Gun (BOCW)
    • Maximum Damage range decreased by 39%

The Nail Gun (BOCW) is and was meant to be a lethal, highly-mobile, short-range dominator. However, its Maximum Damage range far exceeded the lethal range of Shotguns, which it is intended to contest. The Nail Gun’s (BOCW) generous range and mobility allowed it to consistently dispatch foes at the same speed or faster than Shotguns at almost twice their effective range. While the Nail Gun’s (BOCW) pick rate has remained relatively low, we believe it would have been much higher were it more easily accessible.

This Nail Gun nerf in the June 30 Warzone update will probably go down very well with most players as there have been many complaints about the Nail Gun being overpowered.


Despite players being able to have no glint on their sniper rifles again, the June 30 Warzone update has only made a few changes to some barrels.


  • Ranger (Assault Rifles except AK-47 (BOCW) & XM4 (BOCW))
    • Vertical Recoil Control decreased from 15% to 10%
  • Takedown (Assault Rifles except AK-47 (BOCW) & XM4 (BOCW))
    • Horizontal Recoil Control decreased from 15% to 10%
  • Reinforced Heavy / Match Grade / VDV Reinforced (Assault Rifles, Light Machine Guns)
    • Vertical Recoil Control decreased from 7.5% to 5%
    • Horizontal Recoil Control decreased from 7.5% to 5%
  • Task Force / Spetsnaz RPK / CMV Mil-Spec (Assault Rifles, Light Machine Guns)
    • Vertical Recoil Control decreased from 15% to 10%
    • Horizontal Recoil Control decreased from 15% to 10%

We are satisfied with the overall direction of adding Recoil Control to BOCW Barrels. However, we would like the effectiveness of a Weapon to grow with the wielder as they improve. We felt with the magnitude by which recoil was being reduced, there was hardly any room left to master the control of these Weapons. We want Weapons to reward you for learning their reload timings, recoil patterns, and bullets to kill.

Your proficiency with a Weapon should be a journey that is worked toward with an equivalent payoff. When we make Weapons too effective and too easy to control, there is no journey of mastery and we can become disinterested with these Weapons much quicker – which we feel can be a disservice. Even after these changes, we understand that there may still be incredibly effective and easy to control Weapons when enough Recoil Control is applied through attachments. We will continue to target these Weapons as they arise to ensure that they strike a satisfactory balance between upside and downside.
