Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone developer Infinity Ward is working on a fix for the FR 5.56 weapon to address how overpowered it currently is. The developer confirmed on Twitter that it has identified the problem, but there is no ETA on when the fix may be delivered.
The issue is that the underbarrel shotgun for the FR 5.56 is just too powerful. Videos have emerged on social media showing that the weapon can kill an enemy too easily from distances that should normally be outside the lethal range for a shotgun.
We’ve identified the issue with the FR 5.56 and are currently working on a fix. We’ll share more details as they become available. Thank you all for your patience.
