New York Subliners’ professional Call of Duty player Dillon ‘Attach’ Price has released a video explaining the best pro player settings in Modern Warfare, ahead of the Call of Duty League’s inaugural season.

When a new Call of Duty title releases each year, it’s not easy to know the best settings, competitive classes or ways to play straight away.

Luckily for us, there are a number of players who go out of their way to provide instructional or helpful videos around everything Call of Duty, and this one from former FaZe Clan player Attach could be great for players looking to get any possible edge on their opponents.

Audio Settings

The video, published on January 2, goes through the best audio and monitor settings to optimize your gameplay. First, though, he expresses the importance of turning field grain down and urges players to turn off both world and weapon motion blur, stating that it needs to be done.

Moving on to audio, one of the main focuses of this video, Attach has his setup as follows:

  • Audio Mix: Boost High
  • Master Volume: 80
  • Music Volume: 0
  • Dialogue Volume: 100
  • Effects Volume: 100
  • Juggernaut Music: Enabled
  • Hit Marker Sound Effects: MW

Attach then moves on to his Astro Gaming mixamp, showing that he usually keeps his volume at around 70% but has it weighted more towards voice than game sound.

Monitor Settings

Attach also expresses the importance of using the right monitor settings, which makes perfect sense: after all, if you can’t see what’s happening in front of you, you’re at a serious disadvantage.

His settings are as follows:

  • Game Visual: FPS Mode
  • Brightness: 100
  • Contrast: 80
  • Saturation: 50
  • Sharpness: 100
  • Trace Free: 80
  • Volume: 0

Attach then leaves the rest of his settings as they are, finding his optimal visual settings and the ones he says he uses at LAN tournaments.

Attach doesn’t specify which monitor he uses so some settings may be different between his and other players but at the very least, you could use this as a rough guideline.

The former FaZe Clan member and world champion will be looking to return to glory this coming season, and these settings may be just what’s needed to bridge the gap between him and aspiring pro players.

Season 2 of Black Ops Cold War is upon us, and while most players are excited about all of the new content arriving in the game, some are literally being prevented from playing the game after downloading the update.

Call of Duty is no stranger to bugs and glitches, ranging from minor annoying graphical bugs in Warzone to game-breaking glitches in the multiplayer experience.

Now, players are experiencing a whole new level of game-breaking bugs, as they can’t even get into the game.

The February 24 update was due to be an exciting one for fans, but now players are reporting that they can’t even load up the game at all.

BOCW players have to buy the game again?

After sitting through the painstaking download process, with Call of Duty games these days always growing in size, you just want to start the game up, see what’s new, and start ranking your Battle Pass up.

However, multiple players are reporting that the BOCW Season 2 update is leaving them in a loop, with the game asking them to purchase it, even though they already own it.

One user who experienced this was eortiz13 on Reddit, who reported that the game is asking him to re-purchase it before sending him to a screen that says he already has a copy.

just updated my game and now it wants me to re-purchase, but redirects me to a screen that says i already own it. cant even open up the menu. anyone else experiencing this? from r/blackopscoldwar

How to fix the issue

It seems that most people reporting this issue are playing on Xbox, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s limited to Microsoft’s console.

Here are some suggested fixes from other users on Reddit or those who have experienced it:

  • Contact Activision and Microsoft Support to see if they can help
  • Go to ‘Manage Game’ and ensure all content packs are installed
  • Uninstall then reinstall the game

It’s unclear what exactly is causing this issue, but it’s something either Activision or Microsoft will want to ensure is fixed as soon as possible,
