Call of Duty Modern Warfare: Patch 1.09 includes another nerf for the 725 shotgun (PS4, Xbox & PC)

Another new patch has arrived thanks to Infinity Ward, as Call of Duty Modern Warfare's meta improves.

The 725 shotgun is gradually becoming less and less effective thanks to Modern Warfare's most recent patch, which in all honesty isn't a bad thing at all.

The range and damage of the shotgun have been reduced, which for all intents and purposes has made it into a shotgun again, rather than a sniper rifle.

The unexpected patch brought some updates to other weapons, along with general bug fixes and spawn issues.

To keep players from wondering off and getting frustrated with the game, ensuring that all little bugs are fixed ASAP is the way to do it! Luckily for us this is what Infinity Ward is doing.

Although we here at RealSport have noticed just one small hiccup that is still yet to be addressed, the Search and Destroy camera angle glitch.
