The last few weeks have seen multiple patch updates rolled out for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 which have dramatically changed weapon balancing.

With so many weapons having been either buffed or nerfed, the meta class setups in the Multiplayer have also evolved, with players changing their preferences as to which weapons and attachments they want to use.

Call of Duty expert YouTuber TheXclusiveAce has been keeping with all of the updates and has adjusted his preferred classes in accordance with the new balancing changes.

In a video he published on November 23, Ace breaks down his new four preferred class setups in Multiplayer, which now feature certain guns and attachments he previously didn’t enjoy or use too often.

The first class he talks about is his Rampart 17 setup, which he has equipped with the Recon Sight, High Caliber I, High Caliber II, and Fast Mags attachments, Stim Shot Gear, Tac Mask, Gung-Ho, and Dead Silence Perks, and the Primary Gunfighter Wildcard.

“Before this update, I’d say that the Rampart was probably my least favorite Assault Rifle,” he said. “And now it’s up there as one of my favorites with this particular class setup.”

The next class he discusses is an SMG class, which is rare for TheXclusiveAce to use. His first SMG class features the Spitfire with Stock, Extended Mags, and Fast Mags, the Hellion Salvo secondary launcher, Stim Shot Gear, Scavenger, Gung-Ho, and Dead Silence Perks, and the Primary Gunfighter Wildcard.

The third class he presents features the Swordfish Tactical Rifle with a Reflex sight, Quickdraw and High Caliber attachments, Penta-Burst Operator Mod, Stim Shot Gear, Gung-Ho and Dead Silence Perks, and the Primary Operator Mod Wildcard.

The fourth and final class, which is another SMG class, includes the GKS SMG with the Quickdraw and both Grip I and II attachments, the Hellion Salvo launcher, Stim Shot Gear, Tac Mask, Gung-Ho, and Dead Silence Perks, and the Primary Gunfighter Wildcard.

The entirety of TheXclusiveAce’s video can be viewed below, in which the YouTuber further breaks down each class and expains why he prefers to use each weapon, attachments, Perks, and more.

Scump explains why new CDL “bubble” in Texas is a big advantage

All of OpTic Chicago, along with a majority of other pro teams, have relocated to Texas for the Call of Duty League 2021 season, and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner believes it’s going to give them a huge “advantage” over their CDL rivals.

With the switch to online play in 2020, teams were scattered across the United States. Players could be competing from the other side of the country with a significant network disadvantage.

Given LAN events are still a ways off due to the ongoing global crisis, a majority of CDL pros have established a makeshift “bubble” in Texas to combat the issue. With all players in one location, Scump argues that it only benefits teams for the year ahead.

“I absolutely love it,” he said on January 27. With his teammates all training out the H3CZQUARTERS facility, there appear to be no excuses for the upcoming season.

Being in the one location affords a degree of team bonding that you just can’t get online, according to Scump.“I think it has tremendously improved our team chemistry. Every single night [the team] is always hanging out after scrims.”

“You can just tell. It feels like we trust each other a lot more inside of the game. We trust each other to make good decisions and do the right things on the map.”

From OpTic’s standpoint, it’s not just the team chemistry that’s proving valuable. “On top of that, you have the sheer connection advantage,” Scump added.

“I believe 31 of 48 players are in Texas right now and it might even be more than that. Clearly, Texas has some sort of connection advantage for people to want to pick up their lives and move down here to compete.”

We’ve already seen the move pay dividends for OpTic as they recently blitzed through the LA Thieves 3-0 in the Kickoff Classic. “We’ve been playing super good. I can’t even remember the last time we lost a scrim set. It’s been amazing to have the whole team here and I think it’s only going to benefit us moving forward.”

With other teams having followed suit with a move to Texas, it should help establish a more even playing field for a majority of matchups this year.
