Team Envy’s ACHES thinks Black Ops 4 movement speed needs changing

Reigning world champion, Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price, believes the current movement speed in Black Ops 4 is too fast.

The captain of Team Envy took to Twitter to share his thoughts that the overall speed of the game is currently too fast for the increased number of players on the map in competitive play, which increased from 8 to 10 this year.


He stated his belief that the current speed feels too “cluttery and fast” and that it should be decreased by at least 10%, if not more, to make the playing and viewing experience better.

This feeling that the game is too fast could come down to each team having an extra player, as the size of the maps haven’t changed from previous games.


100 Thieves’ Austin ‘SlasheR’ Liddicoat agreed with ACHES, saying he feels players are able to move across the map too quickly at the moment.

With Black Ops 4 being the first game to feature the new 5v5 format, but also including some throwback maps like Firing Range and Slums, it was always likely that players would have feedback, especially those who competed on the original maps on Black Ops 1 and Black Ops 2.

ACHES and Team Envy coach Embry ‘Bevils’ Bevil noted that getting across both Summit and Slums is significantly quicker in Black Ops 4 than on the original versions of each map.


As the game was only released on October 12 and players continue to share their thoughts on what does and doesn’t work, changes could still be made to Black Ops 4 before CWL Las Vegas, the first tournament of the season, which kicks off December 7. 

Could we see movement speed decreased before this?

Warzone pro Aydan reveals his biggest problems with Black Ops Cold War

Now that the Black Ops Cold War Beta is available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, more and more people are starting to give their opinion on the game so far. Warzone player and streamer Aydan has also chimed in his opinions on it, and needless to say, it’s not all positive.

With the second weekend of the Black Ops Cold War Beta starting on October 15, 2020, almost everyone who wants to play the game has the ability to do so. While it’s technically not open to all Xbox and PC players quite yet, tons of people have jumped in, played a number of different matches and provided feedback – which makes sense, given it’s a pre-release version.


Even since the first weekend, more competitive players like Shroud, Aches, Scump, Drift0r, and others have talked about what they like and dislike about the game and so far, it seems like a fairly mixed bag. Now, another player has joined the fray.

Warzone Twitch streamer and YouTuber Aydan took to Twitter to offer feedback about the Black Ops Cold War Beta, and there are a couple of things he would like to see addressed.


According to him, while the movement in the game is fun overall, he wishes there were a different system in place other than sliding due to the fact that last year’s entry, the highly-debated Modern Warfare (2019), had the same feature.

In addition, he also complained about dropshotting being ineffective in the game, claiming that laying down and standing up is way too slow.

“I don’t necessarily want dropshotting to be effective in all gunfights, but laying down in general is way to slow,” Aydan said in a reply to another user.


It’s not all bad for Aydan, however; In a reply to his original tweet, he said that the gun balancing, wildcard system, and killstreaks in the beta are all fun, but that overall he would give it a 6/10 if he had to rate it now and 7 or 8/10 once the full thing releases.

Treyarch is constantly fine-tuning the game, so it wouldn’t be surprising if the developer makes similar changes before the final version. That being said, it remains to be seen just how much it changes.
