The game still needs a lot of tweaks.

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Update Nerfs The 725…Again

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has once again received a patch to help fix some of the game’s many bugs and issues, but the patch notes have revealed something very interesting about one of the title’s most controversial weapons.

The 725 Shotgun has once again been nerfed, making it the THIRD time the weapon has been powered down since the game launched just a few weeks ago.

According to the latest patch notes (check them out in full here), the following has been applied to the 725:

  • Small reduction to base weapon damage range
  • Significantly reduced the damage range added by attachments
  • Small hips spread increase
  • Reduced effective damage at the hip

The 725 is already one of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s most controversial weapons. While many players loathe the OP one-shot-kill gun, lots of people consider it their go-to.

Other general fixes from the notes include the following:

  • Special Operations: Fix for an issue where a player would see no objective after retrying a mission after spectating (Operation Paladin)
  • CDL: Fix for rulesets in Search and Destroy where Field Upgrades were disabled
  • Fix for an exploit where players could duplicate their killstreaks (“Fix for various exploits”)
  • Fix for the “Blue V” Optic challenge not displaying the proper text description
  • Fix misspelling of “trophy”

As with lots of games, there are still a lot of in-game issues that players want to see get patched up in the coming weeks, but it’ll be quite a task for Infinity Ward.


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s first Battle Pass and First Season will be kicking off in just a matter of weeks, launching in early December.
