Call of Duty Warzone YouTuber JGOD has explained how and when you should be using streaks in Warzone, with specific uses for both the Cluster Strike and Precision Airstrike that could change your game.

Airstrikes aren’t the most popular things you’ll buy from the Buy Stations in Verdansk. Most commonly, you’ll be looking to pick up a Loadout Drop, Armor Plates or a UAV.

That said, if you’ve got the money to spare, the streaks on offer — namely the Precision Airstrike and the Cluster Strike — can come in particularly handy.

But how do you know which one you should pick, or the best time to use them?

These tips could greatly help your decision-making when it comes to using streaks in Warzone.

It may seem simple at first glance: you pick up your streak and aim it at a rooftop to take out those annoying campers, or at a team you’ve seen out in the distance.

But, you might not have considered the strategy behind your decision, and considered that there’s way more to it than simply attempting to take out an enemy, as Call of Duty YouTuber JGOD explains in a video comparing the two streaks, trying to figure out which is best.

After showing how the two strikes work, with the Cluster seeming much more random than the Precision (which makes a lot of sense, given the name), and JGOD explained when you should be choosing to use the Cluster Strike over the Precision.

“If you need to rotate from one location to another, then maybe you put a Cluster on there because look also at how long it lasts.”

JGOD goes on to explain that the Precision Airstrike would be preferred if you’re trying to target a rooftop or finishing a down, such as if you’ve sniped someone over a long distance and can’t get the angle on them to finish the job.

Obviously, a lot of it comes down to personal preference, but it’s well worth being aware of the circle and where you’re likely to rotate to next time you’re deciding which streak to buy at the Buy Station. If you think you might face some trouble getting into the new circle, the Cluster Strike might be best, but if you want to take over a building roof, then the Precision is the most viable option.

Sources: 100 Thieves acquire OpTic’s CDL spot, represented as LA Thieves

Sources have told Dexerto that 100 Thieves are entering the Call of Duty League by purchasing the spot previously held by OpTic Gaming Los Angeles.

After initially declining to invest in a slot for the Call of Duty League’s inaugural 2020 season, 100 Thieves are re-entering CoD esports after all for the 2021 campaign and beyond.

The spot that had been OpTic Gaming Los Angeles’ has now transferred ownership to the prominent esports organization, and sources have reported that 100T will rebrand the team to LA Thieves.

Immortals Gaming Club, which had purchased OpTic Gaming and one of two Los Angeles CDL franchise spots, recently sold the Green Wall back to Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez, who will remain in control of the brand.

The OpTic Gaming Los Angeles franchise will end after just one season of competing in the CDL.

At this time, it’s not yet clear whether the league will allow H3CZ to rebrand his Chicago Huntsmen franchise to OpTic. Since he’s already the CEO of Huntsmen, his reacquisition of the OpTic brand meant that control of one of the two teams would eventually have to change hands once again.

According to recent reports from Esports Talk, the CDL was taking the stance that franchises should remain tied to the cities they were initially founded in. Thus, if H3CZ and NRG wanted their team to take on the OpTic Gaming insignia, they would have to sell the Huntsmen spot and move their Call of Duty operations to Los Angeles.

However, in those same reports, it was indicated that despite their initial unwillingness to enter the CDL, 100 Thieves and CEO Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag acquiring a spot was not totally out of the question, and now it’s come to fruition.

While brief, 100 Thieves’ first stint in competitive Call of Duty was a highly successful one.

While brief, 100 Thieves’ first stint in Call of Duty esports was a very successful one; the team captured two major trophies in the then-called CoD World League and finished second in the CWL World Championship.

100T’s team became a fan-favorite, and when Nadeshot announced that they’d be leaving the esport due to the transition to franchising, many were left disappointed, especially considering Haag’s extensive CoD background.

The only question that remains now is concerning their roster – whether or not Nadeshot or his org will want to make any personnel changes remains to be seen, but if not, many will still expect the team to be a contender, considering that three of the four players are top-tier with championship experience.

LA THIEVES’ EXPECTED 2021 CDL ROSTER:

  • Austin ‘SlasheR’ Liddicoat
  • Kenny ‘Kuavo’ Williams
  • Thomas ‘TJHaLy’ Haly
  • Zack ‘Drazah’ Jordan

CoD stars SlasheR and Kenny are returning to 100 Thieves as members of LA Thieves.

For SlasheR and Kenny, this will be their second stint with 100T after previously featuring for the org in its lone season of competition. Similarly, General Manager Eric ‘Muddawg’ Sanders is also returning to the red and black after leaving them for OpTic when the org parted ways from CoD esports.
