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.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
