KV Broadside, RAAL LMG and more


New meta arriving.

Released on March 15th, Warzone 2 Season Two Reloaded brings a ton of new content to the battle royale, as well as the adjustments to existing content that we’ve come to expect. Here we focus on the latter and go through it every weapon buff and nerf in the Warzone 2 Season Two Reloaded Update.

Some of the weapon buffs and nerfs were expected in advance – like the KV Broadside shotgun, which dominated Season 2 thanks to its remarkable melee strength and Dragon’s Breath ammo. Others, like RAAL LMG and RPK, have surprised with the battle royale’s patch notes, promising to seriously shake up the prevailing meta as we get closer to Season 3.
