Los Angeles Guerrillas pro Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price has revealed how his team is in good stead to beat Chicago Huntsmen at CDL London.

After an explosive start to the Call of Duty League in Minnesota, teams are looking forward to getting stuck into more CDL action. Eight teams are flocking across the pond, where the London Royal Ravens will host the first tournament-based event.

With 90 CDL points up for grabs, the Chicago Huntsmen have the opportunity to considerably extend their lead at the top of the standings… But only one person stands in their way.

Scump led his team to a dominant 2-0 Launch Weekend, taking out eClásico rivals, Dallas Empire along the way.

With H3CZ and co. now flying the Chicago Huntsmen banner for NRG, the Guerrillas’ captain still believes he can be their Achilles heel at CDL London. 

In Guerrillas’ first docuseries (ironically named ‘Hardline’), Price revealed that their squad’s coaching staff is the primary reason why he will be able to take down the Huntsmen in London.

“We play Chicago round one of our matches […] the strong suit of our team is we do have a deep coaching staff, and being able to hardcore prepare for one specific team, is where we have an advantage over a lot of other teams,” ACHES revealed. 

“If we’re playing well, and we upset Chicago, that’s going to be a story in itself, where we can ride that wave,” he continued. “We’re going to spend the next nine days really hardcore preparing for that Chicago match.”

Indeed, with Embry ‘Bevils’ Bevils and Ricky ‘Ricky’ Stacy both heading up Guerrillas’ coaching options (alongside Doug Liebe as the squad’s data analyst), the LA-based team will be able to come into their opening match thoroughly prepared.

ACHES is one of the most decorated Call of Duty players of all-time, and despite clocking in with the lowest K/D of Launch Weekend, the two-time world champ still believes his squad has got the edge over others in the league.

Of course, only time will tell whether the Guerrillas will become the ‘hunters’ or the ‘hunted’ when the lock horns with Scump and co. at CDL London.

Both teams are scheduled to go head-to-head at 6AM (PT) / 9AM (ET) / 2PM (GMT), but to be sure you don’t miss a minute of the action, be sure to bookmark our dedicated event hub.

Fastest way to unlock Blue Dot reticle in Warzone & Modern Warfare

The Blue Dot reticle has fast become one of the most popular in Warzone and Modern Warfare, with players claiming it helps with their aim and accuracy when engaging in gunfights.

The Blue Dot has seen a massive uptick in use, especially as it becomes more popular among Warzone content creators who are constantly seeking new ways to maximize their ability in their gameplay.

This is somewhat similar to Infinite Warfare, another Infinity Ward game, in which pro players would use the Blue Dot to get a bit of a better view on their enemies and increase their chances in gunfights.

That said, it’s not easy to unlock, and is a bit of a grind, so be prepared to spend a good amount of time trying to get it.

Holo Sights have become increasingly popular thanks to the Blue Dot.

How to unlock the Blue Dot reticle for Holo sights

There are exactly nine tasks that have to be completed to unlock the reticle, and in a certain order, so it’s guaranteed to take up a solid wedge of time, especially if you’re exclusively playing Warzone.

Let’s take a look at the challenges you have to complete to unlock the Blue Dot for holographic sights:

  • Get 200 Kills using the Corp Combat Holo Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Corp Combat Holo Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the APX5 Holographic Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the APX5 Holographic Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the PBX Holo 7 Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the PBX Holo 7 Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using any Holo Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using any Holo Sight
  • Get 3 kills without dying 150 times using any Holo Sight

These have to be done in this order, as completing each challenge unlocks the next, and each one will also unlock a new reticle as it builds up to the big one.

This isn’t a quick unlock, so expect to sink a lot of time in.

How to unlock the Blue Dot reticle for Reflex sights

The process for unlocking Blue Dot on Holo sights is fairly similar, though there is an additional challenge thrown in there that will make the process take even longer.

Here’s what you’ve got to do:

  • Get 200 Kills using the Operator Reflex Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Operator Reflex Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the Aim-Op Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Aim-Op Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the Viper Reflex Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Viper Reflex Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using any Monocle Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Monocle Sight
  • Get 3 kills without dying 150 times using any Reflex Sight
  • Get 500 kills using any Reflex Optic

Season 6 has brought a bunch of new content, but we’re also seeing a lot of Blue Dot reticles on the battlefield.

Now you know how to do it, you’ll want to know the quickest way to unlock the reticle, too. While we can find ways to minimize how much time you have to spend grinding, it’s worth noting that this really is a grind, and will require a lot of time spent picking up the kills necessary.

We recommend playing in Shipment 24/7 or Shoot the Ship playlists in Modern Warfare multiplayer if possible, especially as with Shipment you can simply slap the Holo sight onto a shotgun or SMG and hipfire at the enemies, racking up kills as you go without being held back by aiming down the enhanced-magnification sights.

When attempting to get headshots, your safest option would probably be using a single-fire weapon like the FAL and aiming for the head — for this, you might be best off heading into the Hardcore playlists.

That said, there are plenty of ways to unlock Blue Dot, and as long as you keep up with the challenges, you should be able to unlock them through any method, though some processes may take longer than the ones we’ve laid out above.
