Introduced earlier this year to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone, the Grau 5.56 assault rifle is one of the most powerful weapons in the game right now, performing well in most situations and capable of holding its own in close-range and long-range scenarios. However, it has been accused of being overpowered, and Infinity Ward is looking to give it a nerf in a future update.
Answering a fan’s question on Twitter, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare co-design director of multiplayer Joe Cecot said the development team has several weapon adjustments in the works for a mid-season update. There isn’t a definitive date for when the Grau will receive a nerf, but there will be full patch notes available when it occurs.
We have a batch of weapon tuning in the works for the mid season update. Patch notes will outline when they drop 🙂 https://t.co/QlaTguFOLJ

Players have been calling for the Grau to be nerfed for months, calling it a more powerful weapon than the similar M4A1 that was capable of ruining the game’s balance. The M4A1 was already one of the strongest guns in Modern Warfare when it launched last year, combining devastating range with a high rate of fire to make it effective in nearly every situation.
