MW3 patch notes today | May 9 Warzone patch: JAK Wardens nerfOverpowered akimbo shotguns nerfed in latest update for MW3, Warzone

Eyes up, gamers, there’s another new patch to download for Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone today.

MW3‘s second patch in as many days has targeted one of the game’s newest Aftermarket Parts that transforms the Lockwood Mk2 marksman rifle into dual-wielded shotguns reminiscent of the akimbo Model 1887 shotguns from Modern Warfare 2 in 2009.

But apparently, they were overperforming, as anyone who’s played public matches in MW3 over the past couple of weeks can attest to after getting one-tapped from ridiculous ranges across a variety of game modes and playlists. And so Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software have brought them down multiple notches in both MW3 multiplayer and Warzone today.

Read on below for the information on what changed on the JAK Wardens in MW3 and Warzone.

The JAK Wardens Conversion Kit itself was hit with an increase in hipfire spread, in both its minimum and maximum values, but two specific ammunition attachments have also been nerfed in response to the akimbo shotguns’ prevalence.

Both the .410 Gauge Slug Shells and .410 Gauge Ball attachments were nerfed in a big way. The Slug Shells had an increase in hipfire spread, as well as multiple tweaks to damage ranges and damage multipliers.

“Our goal for the .410 Gauge Slug Shells is to increase damage consistency in close-range engagements while simultaneously limiting the likelihood of kills at extreme distances by reducing damage range and increasing hipfire spread,” Activision said in the patch notes.

Elsewhere in the update, there was a fix for weapons and powerups from the Arcade playlist accidentally appearing in other game modes, and weapon prestige camos can now be earned on MW2 guns as well.

MW3’s season three continues for another few weeks, and season four will likely begin on Wednesday, May 29.
