The Warzone July 9th update delivers huge meta changes

The Warzone July 9th update has brought about major changes to the battle royale's existing meta.

With Season 5 moving into view, the latest dose of buffs and nerfs attempted to level the playing field but players dropping into the action still managed to find weaponry capable of dominating battle royale, Resurgence, and Ranked matches with ease.

As weapons with the fastest time to kill (TTK) continue proving popular, Raven Software has intervened with an update that's bound to shake things up and its one iconic rifle that's on the receiving end of further nerfs.

The Kar98k has received another nerf with its lower damage modifier decreased to 0.95x from 1.1x. The arm modifiers have been decreased to 0.95x from 1.2x while the leg modifiers have slightly declined to 0.95x from 1x.

Another notable nerf comes for the Superi 46 submachine gun. Its lower torso, arm, and hand modifiers have been reduced to 1.1x to 1.3x. Although these changes may seem small, they could bring other weapons into the mix.

Below are the full Warzone July 9th patch notes detailing all of the changes made to the battle royale courtesy of Raven Software:
