Another weapon added to competitive CoD gentlemen’s agreement in Black Ops 4

Another powerful weapon in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 may have been added to the professional players growing list of things not to be used under their set of gentlemen’s agreements.

The Gentlemen’s Agreements, or GA’s as they’ve come to be known, had been somewhat of a controversial topic to start the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 year off – with pro teams split on what they wanted out of the game.

However, since the game has been updated and pro players have gotten LAN experience under their belts, the list of GA’s has changed somewhat – with some controversial choices, like Stock II for the SAUG, being thrown out of the pro scene. Now, another weapon may have fallen to the GA’s.

MLGPro teams like OpTic Gaming all get a say on the GA’s.

The Mozu pistol has been the usual sidearm to any pro players sniper class due to his incredible power at close-range but, it may no longer be available for use.

Former Regal Reserve and Pnda Gaming player Brandon ‘Nelson’ McKinney tweeted that the gun had been GA’d after he posted ‘dirty’ highlight clips to Twitter.

However, it is unclear if the gun has actually been removed from the pro scene as OpTic Gaming star Brandon ‘Dashy’ Otell needed some clarification during an online Search and Destroy tournament.

“Wait, is the Mozu like GA’d or some shit?,” Dashy asked his squadmates during the tournament. “It is in respawn (game modes) but not in this,” replied Charlie ‘MuTeX’ Saouma.

Yet, the pistol was used during the Group A portion of the Call of Duty Pro League so if it has been GA’d, it would have to have been a pretty recent change.

It is worth watching if the teams in Group B of the Pro League, who kick off their slate of games on February 18, are able to use the Mozu.

How to view your Black Ops Cold War stats on PC, PS5 & Xbox

Call of Duty is enjoyed by some of the most competitive gamers around and, of course, competitors want to analyze their performances. Fortunately, there are multiple ways to view your Black Ops Cold War stats, no matter your system of choice.

If you played Modern Warfare or Warzone, then chances are that you’re already somewhat familiar with checking your CoD statistics. Aside from the in-game client, using the website COD Tracker was a very popular way to check, and compare, your numbers when away from your console or PC.

That remains an option for Black Ops Cold War in 2020 and beyond, but players can also check their stats in-game and on the official Call of Duty app. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages, but they all help you paint a clearer picture of your performance.

Whether you simply want to track your progress as a player or compare yourself to the game’s best, we’ve broken the two ways, outside of the in-game client, that you can check your Black Ops Cold War statistics.

COD Tracker

COD Tracker gives you an overview of your stats with the options to dive deeper.

COD Tracker’s offering is likely the most thorough option around, as you are able to track a ton of statistics, filter by mode, map, and weapon while comparing yourself to global leaderboards. 

Like Warzone, you can even go back through many of your recent matches to analyze individual performances.

  1. Head to COD Tracker and enter either your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  2. Navigate to the Black Ops Cold War tag
  3. Check out how you stack up against the competition

The CoD Companion App is a nice alternative for people looking to check numbers on their phone.

The Call of Duty Companion app is a very easy way to access many of your statistics without turning on your PC or console. While it doesn’t have as much data as COD Tracker might give you (and rounds K/D a decimal sooner than Tracker), the UI is very intuitive, with pie charts and line graphs for your numbers and whatnot.

  1. Search “Call of Duty Companion” on your device’s app store or through their website
  2. Download and open
  3. Sign in with your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  4. Navigate to “Player,” then scroll to “Black Ops Cold War” instead of “Modern Warfare” from the drop-down menu

While BOCW’s in-game client may feel somewhat limited in its options for analyzing your performance and place on the leaderboards, these two options each provide a ton of information.

Both provide similar degrees of data with the principal differences coming in their presentation, so it’s really up to you which you prefer to use.
