As for its Wonder Weapons, according to Comicbook, the update tweaked the Base Version of D.I.E.
The said Wonder Weapon can now receive a percentage of its maximum ammo capacity when an enemy Zombie is absorbed, making higher ammo capacity versions loke the D.I.E. Electrobolt more viable. The update also increased its melee damage to 160 from its original value of 145.
Speaking of D.I.E. Electrobolt, thanks to the patch update, the said variant will now increase the movement speed of the wielder while firing from 75% to 100% of base, and will now consume more ammo for its Level 2 and Level 3 energy beams. The said ammo consumption will increase as long as the trigger is held.
For its Pack-a-Punched version, D.E.A.D, the patch update will make it vacuum up to 3 enemies at a time at a slightly increased damage equal to the percentage of the enemy's max health.

For the enemies in the Zombies map, the patch update, according to Dexerto, fixed an issue that caused incorrect zombie pathing in the Main Street area.
