Treyarch has released the first patch update for Black Ops Cold War, nerfing some of the best weapons in the game.

Today, Treyarch released the first patch for Black Ops Cold War since its release a week ago. They’ve nerfed some of the best weapons and increased some scorestreak costs, let's take a look at all the notable changes.

Weapon Balancing

The FFAR 1 and MP5 are some of the best guns in Black Ops Cold War. The MP5 was nerfed recently, however, today's update seems to have reverted those changes, so if you still need to get that MP5 you're in luck. As for FFAR 1 users, you’re not so lucky. The FFAR’s horizontal recoil was increased by an enormous 525% from 40 to 210, along with its max damage being slightly reduced with its max damage range. The M16 and AUG also took a hit, with their max damage range being reduced and sprint to fire time being increased.

Scorestreak Changes

There were also changes to scorestreak costs. Generally, the cost of scorestreaks has increased, with only one or two getting a reduction.
