Call of Duty update: Crossbow gets nerfed

Call of Duty update: Crossbow gets nerfed

Feb 18 2020

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has released a small update that balances several weapons and changes to the multiplayer.

The crossbow that was introduced to the game just last week, no doubt delighting medieval enthusiasts, will be deceased in power considerably. While it used to take just three bolts to down an enemy Support Helo, it will now take six. The M4 was also nerfed in damage and range.

But fear not, the M13 received a nominal increase in its range and damage stats.

Player will also welcome a fine-tuning of the Shipment 24/7 map that will “reduce the frequency of instant deaths and spawn traps”. Praise Odin!

Here are the full patch notes…
