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.

2021 CDL Challengers info announced: Scouting & Elite Series

The Call of Duty League has announced all-new details for upcoming 2021 Challengers events, and there will be even more ways for up and coming players to show their stuff.

Call of Duty Challengers is the official “path to pro” circuit for amateur CoD esports players around the world, and there are two brand new events being added to the circuit in 2021 – the Scouting Series and Challengers Elite.

The 2019 season wrapped up in August with the $500k finals crowning the top teams in North America, Europe and Asia. Once again, players looking for their big break are eagerly awaiting the next opportunity.

They won’t have to be patient for very long either, with the first new Challengers event kicking off just a couple of weeks at the time of writing, in early December with the Scouting Series.

This Series will bring together CDL coaches to draft their own squads from one big pool of all the players that secure an invite. These teams will be split up into EU and NA competitions and will play against teams from their region over the course of the four-day tournament.

Elite is the second new event, and will put the top amateur teams from Challengers into an exclusive bracket to battle it out, sometime “over the course of the 2021 Season.”

Challengers Cups were first introduced in 2019 and will be returning in 2021 as well. These will be standalone tournaments  players across North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region. Through the Cups and the competitive Ladder, players can earn Challengers points which are used to qualify and seed teams for various events throughout the season.
