Looks like EM2 users will have to adapt to these changes or find a new low-recoil AR to master at the start of the new season. The EM2 Assault Rifle used to be the low-recoil shotgun for many casual and professional gamers, but now it seems like it's time for a change. Players will need to start looking for a new Assault Rifle if they want to be effective without dealing with a harsh recoil pattern. Keep an eye out for Call of Duty: Warzone social media handles. They may continue to release more balance updates like this in the coming days.


Call of Duty: War Zone is available now on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, PS4, PS5. For more information on this update, visit the official Call of Duty: Warzone site.
