In short, despite Warzone update 1.34’s massive file size, the latest download doesn’t actually do very much. This bloat is due to the fact that the game’s developers at Raven Software have made changes to Warzone‘s file structure to hopefully reduce update file sizes in the future.
With that in mind, while today’s update is excessively large in the face of decreasing data caps, the hope is that fixes to come in the months ahead will be a little bit smaller than they’d otherwise be. That being said, Activision’s teams made similar adjustments to 2019’s Modern Warfare that seemingly didn’t have much of an effect on that game’s historically bloated downloads. It’s possible this particular change will be more effective, though.
Taking a look at some of the tweaks that are present in Warzone update 1.34, the biggest listed change is probably a nerf to the AUG. However, according to those who’ve messed around with the latest patch, the recoil changes don’t stop the gun from dominating the meta.
That leaves us with a few ping-related adjustments designed to make the UI a bit clearer. Any way non-verbal communication can be improved should be implemented, so we’re glad to see that Raven continues to make the ping system better.
Warzone update 1.34 may be a bit of a letdown given its sheer girth, but at least it doesn’t appear to have introduced many new bugs.
Call of Duty: Warzone is available now on PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC.
