Just before the month came to a close. Infinity Ward has announced a new update for Call of Duty: Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2. There are a handful of global changes that were implemented through a minor update to the game along with some fairly game-changing removals in the battle royale.

While global changes are always a welcome addition, it’s certainly the changes that weren’t listed that will have players scratching their heads. However, it’s clear that Infinity Ward is gearing up for Season 2 in Warzone 2. Keep reading below to get the full patch notes that dropped on January 30, 2022.

January 30 Update Patch Notes – COD MW2 & Warzone 2

Before getting to the specific notes, it’s important to address the two largest changes. Both the Birdseye Perk and the Revival Pistols were taken out of Warzone 2. Last Stand, or Survivor as we know it now, was added in place of Birdseye. Perk Packages are set to receive some changes in Warzone 2 Season 2, so this appears to be the start. Below you can find the rest of the patch notes for January 30.
