Black Ops Cold War leak shows all attachments for AK-74u, XM4 & more

Reputable Call of Duty leaker BKTOOR has shared a full look at every Black Ops Cold War attachment for the AK-74u, Tundra, and Type 63.

It’s fair to say the Black Ops Cold War Alpha took most of the Call of Duty community by surprise, with developers Treyarch only giving two days notice.

Feedback has generally been overwhelmingly positive, with many enjoying the change of pace from Modern Warfare. However, some MW features have been retained, including the Gunsmith system that proved very popular in Infinity Ward’s title.

The Alpha went live on September 18, and lasts until September 20.

The Alpha has unlocked nearly every weapon for players, as well as a number of attachments. Not all attachments are available though and, even with players able to see the names of the attachments, they are unable to view them or view the effect they have on the weapon in question.

Thankfully, reputable leaker BKTOOR has shared in-game footage of all the attachments for a number of weapons, including the AK-74u, which has established itself as an early front runner.

The attachments’ full profiles can be viewed now, seeing exactly how they affect the AK-74u. Judging by the attachments there will be some serious choices for players to make, with attachments like the 9.9″ Blue Squadron barrel offering increased damage and muzzle velocity, but reducing magazine size.

It wasn’t just the AK-74u that the leaker shared a more exhaustive look at, with the LW3- Tundra sniper rifle and Type 63 being shared.

There has been a lot of discussion about sniper rifles in the game’s Alpha, but Treyarch have already confirmed that snipers were intentionally buffed to allow better data collection.

Finally, the leaker shared a look at the XM4 assault rifle, and the full set of attachments that will be available for it in future versions of the game.

It goes without saying that the attachments listed give us an idea of how they will impact weapons, but these are not final given the early development stage Black Ops Cold War is still in.

The thought of the AK-74u being made even stronger is scary, but Treyarch are known for their regular adjustments and patches to ensure everything remains balanced.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is set to drop in full on November 13.

Another massive Warzone event is heating up as popular content creator and battle royale champion Jordan ‘HusKerrs’ Thomas is hosting his very own tournament with $300,000 on the line.

Following close behind Vikkstar’s original Warzone competition, HusKerrs is next in line for his own huge Call of Duty event. HusKerrs Howl aims to crown the best partners in the world as this unique event focuses on Duos action.

After making history as the first player to pass six figures in Warzone winnings, it’s only fitting that HusKerrs’ event comes with the biggest prize pool yet. A whopping $300,000 is up for grabs over the course of two weeks.

From the teams that will be dropping in to when each round of action is taking place, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything you need to know about the HusKerrs Howl Warzone event.

What is the HusKerrs Howl Warzone event?

The HusKerrs Howl event is one of the biggest Warzone tournaments to date. Not just in terms of prizing, but in how long it’s set to last and how many teams will be getting involved.

Duos will be dropping into Verdansk across multiple weeks in order to qualify for the Finals. Additionally, there’s also a special one-off Zombie Trios section to get things going before the Duos competition really begins.

A brand new Twitch channel has been created just for this event with HusKerrs set to host. We’ve embedded this below for your convenience. Expect almost every competitor to be sharing their own perspective throughout the tournament as well.

HusKerrs Howl will be starting with a Zombie Royale showdown.

First up is the special Zombie Day event on Friday, October 30 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET. This is a unique Trios competition in the Zombie Royale playlists. Only one team can take out the prize for what is essentially a warm-up run before the real show starts up.

The following day on October 31, Duos will be dropping in for the first round of qualifying action. This will be followed up by the second and third rounds on November 5 and November 6 respectively.

Last but not least, the best Duos from the qualifiers will advance through to the Finals. This takes place on November 7 to determine the overall winner of the HusKerrs Howl event.

This particular competition is for Duos only.

This particular Warzone competition is for Duos only and will feature a double-elimination bracket. 16 teams will be dropping in for the first day of action. They will go head to head until the very end with only the Top 3 qualifying for the Finals.

For the final two days of the qualifiers, only eight duos will be playing. From here, the Top 2 make it into the Finals. This makes seven Duos so HusKerrs will be taking the eighth and final spot.

As teams are going head to head, the Duo with the highest point total in each matchup will advance. No different from most Warzone events, teams will be awarded one point per elimination. There’s currently no telling how many points will be awarded for higher placements in each match.

Stay tuned over the coming days for full recaps and results as the action gets underway. Big names such as Symfuhny, Aydan, and TeePee are all expected for the event. So it’s sure to be an intense tournament.
