The Equalizer

The Equalizer’s ammunition capacity has been increased by 10%. A welcome change since the gun has one of the lowest magazine capacities.

The Annihilator’s bullet tracking has been reduced significantly turning it into a far less potent weapon at longer ranges.

Ballistic Shield

The Ballistic Shield is one of the more recent additions made to the game. As such, the Ballistic Shield turned out to be quite broken in some situations. So, the pistol that is used when equipping the shield’s magazine capacity has been reduced. But, players now using the Shield cannot be tracked from the front using the Annihilator

The Fennec has been one of the most notroious weapons in the previous patch as well. Now, the Short MIP Lightweight Barrel have less movement speed. Moreover, the Akimbo perk which is quite pesky to deal with has also been adjusted to have higher reload times and lower damage numbers as well.

Arctic .50

A very common magazine used for the Arctic.50, the MIP has been nerfed to have slightly reduced firing, recoil and amazine capacity.

The general match-making algorithm has also been optimized which should reduce the general level gap you see between players. Moreover, the calculation of ranking points has been changed favoring players of higher conduct scores and KD/s.
