October 18 patch notes Warzone buff Grav, Customs Iron Trials, more
The latest Warzone update arrived on October 18, improving the Grav assault rifle, bringing the popular Iron Trials mode to private matches, and fixing over a dozen pesky bugs.
A few hours before Warzone scariest event of the year starts, Raven Software rolled out a surprise update on October 18. While this isn’t the biggest fix we’ve ever seen, a few key changes and new additions have been made.
The immense popular Iron Trials game mode returned with Warzone Season 6 Update. Now players can upgrade to the hardcore variant in their own private matches.
In addition, the developers have listened to community feedback and quickly polished the Gravity Assault Rifle. Here’s everything you need to know about the Warzone update for October 18.
Improved Grav in New Warzone Update
Among the huge pile of new content in the Warzone Season 6 Update, the Grav assault rifle was introduced through the last Battle Pass. While this was an early unlock, gamers quickly switched to the new AR, claiming it was virtually “unusable.”
However, only days after the start of the new season, and the developers have been looking to turn things around quickly for the Grav.
The October 18 Warzone patch changed one weapon and only one weapon. Grav has been slightly improved as recoil has now been minimized. It is not yet clear whether this will be enough to push the AR up in the standings, but it will be a welcome adjustment nonetheless.
Iron Trials customs activated in the latest Warzone patch
The return of Iron Trials was also included in the Warzone Season 6 patch. This playlist increases difficulty in Warzone, tweaking everything from TTK to prizes in Buy Stations.
It quickly became a popular item in Warzone and now players can host their own instances. Through the Private Match feature, players can host Custom Solos, Duos, Trios or Quads in the Iron Trials variant.
It should be noted, however, that these custom lobbies will be limited to 132 players at this time. Raven Software intends to “increase this limit” to 150 standard players “at a later date.”
