Looks like EM2 users will have to adapt to these changes or find a new low recoil AR to main in this early part of the new season. The EM2 assault rifle was the go-to low recoil rifle for many casual and pro players, but now it looks like it’s time for a change. Players will have to start looking for a new assault rifle if they want to be effective without dealing with a harsh recoil pattern. Keep an eye on the Call of Duty: Warzone social media handles. They may keep releasing more balance updates like this one in the next couple of days.

Call of Duty: Warzone is available now on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, PS4, PS5. For more information regarding this update go to the official Call of Duty: Warzone website.
