Assault Rifle Bravo - well, Modern Warfare's Assault Rifle Bravo - has been nerfed again following its changes in the Season 4 Reloaded update. It wasn't exactly the meta a couple of months ago and it looks like Raven Software still thinks it's too powerful. Here's the latest information from the Season 5 Reloaded update regarding Assault Rifle Bravo in Warzone.
UPDATE - More changes for AR Bravo...
According to Raven Software, Assault Rifle Bravo has a fantastic Time to Kill - So much so that it's decided to nerf it again. This is only a minor change, but you'll notice it if you use Assault Rifle Bravo regularly.
The Season 5 Reloaded Patch Notes have stated the following:
- Assault Rifle Bravo (MW)
- Upper Torso Multiplier decreased from 1.1 to 1
Raven Software has this to say about the changes:
To the dismay or surprise of some, our data suggests that the Assault Rifle Bravo (MW) is an absolute monster. The Assault Rifle Bravo (MW) will still be capable of achieving an extremely low Time to Kill, though that speed will now be locked behind an additional Headshot. Changes like these align more closely with our goal to shift consistently acquirable TTKs out of the 300ms range.
Which Gun Is Assault Rifle Bravo?
Raven Software doesn't use the actual weapon names for Modern Warfare weapons in their Warzone Patch Notes anymore. It seems like another step in Modern Warfare erasure and fans are less than pleased. We don't think they're going to remove these guns altogether, but they don't appear as floor loot anymore and the lack of naming can make Patch Notes a bit annoying to figure out.
If you were wondering what Assault Rifle Bravo is, you'll be pleased to know that it's actually Modern Warfare's AK-47. It hasn't been in the meta for a while now, but it's still a favourite among some players.
You can unlock the AK-47 at Rank 53 in Warzone and/or Modern Warfare, but you will most likely already have it and a Weapon Blueprint or two. Both games have been out a while.
Assault Rifle Bravo Changes
In the Season 4 Reloaded update, Raven Software nerfed a lot of weapons. Mainly, they focused on decreasing both the Headshot Multiplier and Upper Torso Multiplier of numerous weapons from both Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War.
In relation to Assault Rifle Bravo, the Modern Warfare AK-47, the following changes were made:
Assault Rifle Bravo (MW)
Headshot Multiplier decreased from 2.05 to 1.62
Upper Torso Multiplier decreased from 1.2 to 1.1
It isn't too drastic, but if you regularly use this weapon you will notice a difference in the time-to-kill and effectiveness at range.
