Escape From Tarkov buffs the recoil of all 5.56 weapons

Today's technical update seems be leaning towards new meta.

The developer of Escape From Tarkov, Battlestate Games, just had enough. After numerous complaints trashing the 5.56 weapons and their low usage, Battlestate Games decided to even the playing field and eliminate the current meta by buffing all of the 5.56 weapons. Finally, players may indulge in playing with the M4, HK, and other weapons using this particular ammunition.

Previously, Battlestate Games buffed the 5.56 ammunition, increasing the damage but lowering the armor penetration. Now, it’s a different world. This may induce a new meta within the Tarkov region and yield the AR-15 as the most favorable platform. Without further ado, below you can find all of the 5.56 weapon buffs, as detailed on tarkov-changes.
