Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (opens in new tab) and Call of Duty: Warzone (opens in new tab) "weapon tuning" will be a major part of an incoming update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare season 4 (opens in new tab) , Infinity Ward has confirmed. 

In response to a question on Twitter about the Grau being nerfed, Infinity Ward's co-design director of multiplayer Joe Cecot (opens in new tab) promised that "a batch of weapon tuning" is being developed as part of "the mid season update", explaining that new sets of Call of Duty: Warzone patch notes (opens in new tab) will reveal more details at a later date.

The Grau is the current meta's most powerful assault rifle in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and the go-to choice for many a loadout, especially in Warzone. That's great for those who enjoy it's low recoil and high damage rate, but not so fun for those often caught on the other end of its sights. 

The first-person shooter has seen its fair share of over-powered weapons across the course of its run since releasing back in 2019, most notably with the Modern Warfare 725 shotgun (opens in new tab), which got heavily nerfed at the tail end of last year. 

We'll see just how far Infinity Ward decides to go when it comes to the Grau however, as the studio no doubt wants it to remain a viable choice for multiplayer, even if it needs taking down a peg or two. We'll be sure to keep you updated if and when that happens over the coming weeks here at GamesRadar.

The Call of Duty: Warzone squads kill record (opens in new tab) is getting ridiculous - how high will players push the duos kill record?
