As many fans’ pick for the best player in the CoD: WWII season, Kenny ‘Kenny’ Williams has a lot to live up to under 100 Thieves in Black Ops 4, and it could be another year of SMG dominance from the young star.

First making his LAN debut in 2015, Kenny was forced out of professional competition in CoD due to the age restriction enforced by the CWL, returning only in late 2017 for the WWII season.

He immediately made an impact, winning the first two events of the year, and being crowned the best SMG player in the game by most fans, a title which he held onto for the rest of the season.

Ahead of the Black Ops 4 season, Kenny’s WWII performances earned him a call up from Nadeshot to join 100 Thieves, leaving the Team Kaliber org for the first time since his return to pro play.

While it is still early days, and we haven’t seen any LAN action, 100 Thieves fans will be hoping Kenny can remain the top SMG player, although he will face stiff competition from the likes of Scump, John, Apathy, Huke, Prestinni and others.

During the CWL 2K however, in their quarter-final match vs G2 Esports, Kenny completely took over with the Maddox (technically an assault rifle, although some would say it is not unlike an SMG), going on a seven streak, finishing off the last player, Faccento, with his fists.

They went on to win the match in a resounding 3-0, but couldn’t replicate it up against the orgless team led by Michael ‘SpaceLy’ Schmale in the semis, were 100 Thieves bowed out in a 3-1 defeat.

Kenny’s agressive play holding down the hardpoint is exactly what the 100T roster needs from him, especially considering that the roster only has one other true SMG player in Maurice ‘Fero’ Henriquez.

They also have two of the top three assault rifle players in Austin ‘SlasheR’ Liddicoat and Sam ‘Octane’ Larew, plus veteran Ian ‘Enable’ Wyatt in the flex role, but all of these players are slower and methodical.

Given the fast pace of Black Ops 4, Kenny’s performances will be crucial if 100 Thieves are to see the success this season that they desire.

Bizarre Black Ops Cold War exploit completely removes sprint-fire delay

A strange exploit has been found with the Gung-Ho perk in Black Ops Cold War, which removes the sprint-fire delay from all weapons in-game.

As with other online multiplayer shooters, Call of Duty players, typically, have to have quick reaction speed in order to win gunfights and pick up kills against the enemy team.

While this reaction time can be difficult to improve, some players have found another way to gain an advantage over their opponents with a bug that allows you to fire the first few bullets even earlier.

This exploit was found with the Gung-Ho perk, which allows players to shoot their weapons while sprinting. The Cold War perk has been a go-to for those who love to run and gun, but this new bug completely cuts out the time it takes to start firing.

One Redditor u/b3nb0i shared this unusual glitch with the perk, revealing that, with the help of lethal equipment such as semtex, it’s possible to cancel the sprint-to-fire delay on a gun.

Usually, even with the Gung-Ho perk equipped, there is a small delay in the time it takes to straighten the weapon from the sprint position to be ready to fire.

However, with semtex or another piece of equipment in-hand, the gun is already in a position to fire and cancels the delay, making it quite deadly in any gunfights. It is worth noting that it is not possible to ADS while using this exploit and that players would have to rely on their weapons attachments to make their shots more accurate.

While this strange exploit does require some getting used to, it could still be quite overpowered particularly on maps with short-range engagements such as Nuketown, especially as the grenade will drop if you’re taken down – like how the Martyrdom perk used to work.

As of now, it is unclear whether this was intended to be a feature in Cold War but, if it is found to be a glitch it will likely be patched by Treyarch in one of the future updates.
