Warzone Season 3 Full Patch Notes – May 7

There’s a new May 7 patch for Warzone Season 3 that’s making some mind-blowing changes to the battle royale.

Lately, Warzone developer Raven Software has been making all the right decisions. In the last few major updates, the development team has become more open with the battle royale’s fan base, and is making changes for the better.

After over a year of strange changes and disappointing patches, it’s surprising to see the difference in recent weeks. But it’s a pleasant surprise and, after all, it’s better late than never!

In Warzone Season 3’s May 7 patch notes, the developer reveals some incredible buffs and nerfs to the battle royale’s weapons. We finally got the long-awaited AMAX nerf, but the patch notes suggest that the gun is simply balanced now, rather than completely destroyed.

What’s more, Warzone Season 3’s terrible floor loot situation is finally improving! And if your favorite gun got hit in this update, here’s a complete list of all of Warzone’s best weapon meta loadouts.

Warzone Season 3 Patch Notes – May 7


  • Loot that spawns across both Verdansk and Rebirth Island has been adjusted as follows…
    • Streetsweeper
      • Common variant removed from ground loot
      • Uncommon variant removed from ground loot
      • Rare variant removed from Supply Boxes
      • Epic variant removed from Supply Boxes
    • Hauer 77
      • Common variant added to ground loot
      • Uncommon variant added to ground loot
      • Rare variant added to Supply Boxes

We knew that Streetsweeper changes would be coming in the new update, and this nerf to the drop rate is sure to make players happy.


  • Fixed additional map locations in Verdansk that allowed players to reach out-of-bounds areas. This is on top of the locations that we addressed last week.
  • Fixed a bug causing Player models to initially load as low resolution at the start of a BR match.
  • Fixed a bug with the Cold War AK-47, FARA 83, XM4, and RPD where they were having their ADS Move Speed and Firing Move Speeds decreased with the Tactical and SAS Combat/Spetsnaz Stocks rather than increased.

Pre-update, Black Ops Cold War rifles had overpowered movement speed in Warzone! Now the weapons are all in a much better place in the meta.

That’s all for the May 7 Warzone patch notes, but we’re eager to see what the developer brings to the game next!

It’s nice to see that the broken Black Ops Cold War guns are finally getting the nerfs they deserve. Perhaps now, players will stop asking for Warzone to remove all Cold War weapons.

Next up, Warzone players want a nerf to this broken equipment that’s been in the meta for too long. And Activision is promising to fix Warzone’s biggest lightning and visibility issues.

Meanwhile, it looks like Rambo is coming to Warzone in a new crossover!
