Black Ops 4 gentleman’s agreements change following March 29 update

The extensive list of ‘gentleman’s agreements in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has apparently shortened following the weapon balancing update on March 29.

According to veteran pro Chris ‘Parasite’ Duarte, the debate over the Rampart-17 assault rifle has been quashed, as Treyarch gave the weapon some serious attention.

The Rampart first attracted attention when Classic’s impressive performance at CWL Fort Worth using the assault rifle helped Call of Duty players had decided to ban the gun from use unofficially, despite Luminosity Gaming’s arguments otherwise.

Luminosity Gaming were then apparently blacklisted from scrimming other pro league teams for wanting to use the gun and had trouble getting practice after returning from CWL Fort Worth.

During a match of League Play on Black ops 4, Michael ‘Swarley’ Carter asked Parasite if the gun was “un-GA’d” (no longer part of the gentlemans’ agreement), to which Parasite simply replied, “Yeah”, hinting that it was once again usable among the pro players.

Parasite followed on to say that the gun is seen as a much more situational weapon now than it used to be after the March 29 changes, saying that, “running and gunning with it is a lot less viable than it was before.”

He also shared that he feels like one Maddox RFB player from every team might have to switch to a Rampart,  “I think this will take one of your Maddox’s place’s on a map.”

This should come as good news to Luminosity who have shown how well they can perform with the Rampart and they also shouldn’t have as much problem finding practice now that the gun is being used again by pro players.

As for other teams, it will be interesting to see who can adapt best. OpTic Gaming’s Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter previously stated that he thinks his team would benefit from using the gun, despite supporting the GA prior to the update.

Other teams that have excelled with two or even three Maddox players may now have to choose who will run the Rampart-17 on some or even all maps, creating a new dynamic.

Rapper turned popular Twitch streamer Soulja Boy went on a hilarious rant-like victory speech after he dominated the opposition in a match of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

After loading into the Crossroads map for a little free for all action, the rapper took no prisoners, destroying the other members of the lobby with ease.

By the time Soulja landed the final kill bringing his score to 30, the player back in second place had a mere 22 making the streamer’s performance even crazier.

Soulja himself was over the moon with his play and boasted his insane skills in an epic speech where he shouted at the top of his lungs.

Soulja Boy was hyped after winning the round.

“Let’s f**king go! I’m in beast mode! I’m at f**king beast mode!” he screamed in glory. “Stop playin’ with me! That’s what I do! When I get in that mode!”

As the 30-year-old continued his hyped speech, the “Best Play” was being shown in the background documenting the streamer’s series of frags.

Throughout the clip, Soulja manages to pick up three kills in quick succession padding his lead. Amusingly, some in his chat thought that the game was too dominant and he was playing against AI.

“Of course when a [person] winning they’re going to say it’s bots!” he smirked. “I’m so motherf***ing raw I make these [people] look like bots! Look up them Gamer Tags and DM then and ask them if they’re bots!”

Needless to say, Soulja Boy’s confidence was really something else and being able to back up the trash talk with big wins just makes it so much sweeter.

Of course, if you want, you can use Soulja’s loadout in your own games and see if it makes you pop off as hard as him. For his primary weapon, he opts for the MP5 with the Duckbill Choke, Millstop Reflex, +22 extended, 6RND Tube and Steady Aim Laser.

Soulja Boy was making opponents look like bots from the campaign.

His secondary is the Hauer 77. For equipment, he opts for stuns, semtex, and proximity mine. Finally, for perks and Wildcard he uses Paranoia, Gearhead and Ghost equipped with Danger Close.

Give it a shot and see if you can get on Soulja Boy’s level.
