100 Thieves’ SlasheR and other CoD pros want to see one major change in Black Ops 4 Multiplayer

While Black Ops 4 has been seen as a huge success both commercially and critically, there are still some issues that the competitive players have with the popular title.

In just about every competitive game, there are things that the professional players notice and have issues with that the general player simply wouldn’t notice.

Black Ops 4 is no different, as 100 Thieves’ Austin ‘SlasheR’ Liddicoat has recently expressed his frustration with the Fog of War, identifying it as one of the major problems with the game. 

Fog of War is a mechanic in Black Ops 4 that reveals enemies on the mini-map when they come into a teammate’s field of view.

This has been a major change from the traditional mini-map indicators that only showed up when an enemy fired their weapon and even three months of adjusting to the feature, pro players still want to see big changes.

The issue was first brought up by SlasheR who Tweeted his opinion, saying that the mechanic “randomly blesses players with info.”

He wasn’t alone with this opinion, however, as multiple players, including Michael ‘SpaceLy’ Schmale and Team Envy’s Bryan ‘Apathy’ Zhelyazkov chimed in expressing their own frustrations with the new feature.

Each recalled times where they saw players or were seen themselves in situations that wouldn’t have been possible in past titles, expressing much frustration over these occurrences. 

While it’s possible that the feature could receive some minor tweaks down the line, it looks to be here to stay given that players have been speaking out against the feature for weeks without any change.

Regardless, with the CWL Pro League and the launch of League Play just a few weeks away, players will no doubt be anxiously awaiting news on any updates to this feature.

NICKMERCS showcases CR-56 AMAX loadout as it replaces DMR in Warzone meta

Twitch star Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff has got a solid CR56 Amax loadout for Call of Duty Warzone following the recent nerfs to the DMR. In fact, he’s hinted at the assault rifle being the best gun in the game. 

Following on from the recent nerfs to the DMR, Warzone players have been trying out a few different weapons to see what sticks and what can help them dominate on Verdansk and Rebirth Island. 

For the most part, the MAC-10 and Diamatti’s have stuck around – seeing as they deal some serious damage, but if players who want range have to use assault rifles, for the most part. 

Some have gone back to the M4, and others the Kilo 141, but NICKMERCS is using the Amax (otherwise known as the Galil) and has got a nice class that deals some damage in the battle royale. 

AMAX assault rifle
The AMAX is currently one of the most powerful weapons in the game.

The FaZe Clan member revealed the loadout in his newest video – hinting at it possibly being the best gun in Warzone now that the DMR has been nerfed quite a bit. 

“The AMAX, it’s damage, accuracy, range – this is a gun that has been in the mix for a long time now, and everyone is going back to it,” Nick noted, adding that he’s “got some work” to do with it though, as he and the weapon don’t quite see eye-to-eye.

As for what he’s using, the Twitch star has a nice set up that buffs the assault rifle’s accuracy and range quite a bit, with control getting an ever so slight buff. However, the trade-off is that you lose a fair bit of mobility.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: XRK Zodiac S440
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags

The loadout is actually one we’ve got in our list of best Amax classes for Warzone, so if you want something a little different – perhaps with a touch more mobility – you can check that out here

Obviously, if everyone starts using the gun again and it becomes an issue, then, it could suffer the same fate as the DMR, but until then, it’s worth seeing if it works for you.
