A new Call of Duty Modern Warfare update 1.61 details released for PS4, PC, and Xbox One players. According to the official COD Modern Warfare 1.61 patch notes, the latest update added weapons changes, bug fixes and more. Additionally, today’s Warzone update 1.61 also includes Titanium Trials and Rebirth of the Dead.
Previously, a big mid season update added The T-800 and T-1000 from Terminator 2: Judgment Day and various fixes to the game.
Unfortunately, players are still experiencing a number of issues while playing the game. Today’s COD Modern Warfare version 1.61 will fix a few of these issues.

The following changes were added previously.
We’ve seen a positive change in kill metrics since the update to Snipers in Season Three. The intent was to lean into smaller maps favoring the Aggressive Snipers vs Heavier being more suited for the large map. Our data shows that despite a smaller adoption rate (~9.5%) Snipers are still being accredited with a competitive amount of kills vs the more popular class of Weapons.
However, we’d like to lean into the Weapon to map identity harder, and as such all Snipers are receiving roughly a 35% bonus to their maximum damage range. Lighter rifles, with their damage range builds, will now more reliably cover the typical sight lines found in Rebirth Island and Fortune’s Keep. The goal is to not return to the fastest ADS Snipers being the dominant Weapon in all scenarios – so if things begin to trend that way we will make targeted changes to other statistics of those stand-out Weapons.

We’ve seen a positive adoption of Serpentine in Loadouts, and as such average encounter time has crept up. We’re reducing the bonus damage mitigation so that it’s still a valuable perk, but has less of an impact on average TTK. We’ll be watching this space closely and will make further adjustments as necessary.
