Though it “pains” them to do it, Call of Duty: Warzone caretakers Raven Software sometimes have to shed a single tear and make a gun a little worse. Today’s patch takes the popular CR-56 AMAX assault rifle down a notch. And it’s literally one notch: The assault rifle’s minimum damage has been decreased from 32 to 31 in Warzone (but not Cold War).

It’s a conservative change, but not totally insignificant. At range, doing the minimum damage, players will need to get one extra shot in with the AMAX for a kill. The fastest time-to-kill the gun is capable of at max damage hasn’t changed, though, which Raven feels keeps the AMAX’s risk-reward proposition balanced “considering how unforgiving its rate of fire is and how many other weapons it has to contest with in the mid-range engagement space.”
