Warzone Pacific December 10 Patch Notes

Raven Software stated the Warzone Pacific December 10 1.49 update reduced the volume of aerial elements, balanced several weapons, and reduced weapon bloom.

Weapon Adjustments

These are the main changes coming in this update:

  • Reduced eareal elements (Fighter Planes, Bombing Runs, and Airstrike Killstreaks).
  • Fighter Planes will not auto-target parachuting players anymore.
  • Drastic weapon bloom reduction.

This update does not solve the weapon bloom issue entirely. According to Raven Software, the final goal is to remove bloom altogether.

  • NZ-41 (Recoil increase)
  • Swiss K31 (Damage decrease)
  • M1912 (Damage decrease)
  • Owen Gun (Mid Damage Range decrease)
  • PPSh-41 (Damage Decrease)
