Black Ops 4 may be just over a month old, but the Blackout community is already starting to come up with some ridiculously impressive stat lines in the battle royale mode.

Much like Fortnite, Blackout players seemingly have no problem racking up tons of kills each game to set new world records.

While some players dedicate their time to trying to break such records, one group of players managed to do so without even intending to.

CoD pros Zhivko ‘EupHo’ Dimitrov and Ivan ‘FlexZ’ Arizpe were playing in a $10 wager match against two other players, Enxiun and Spique, when the four players ended up pulling in 51 kills to set a new world record.

Enxiun led the pack with 19, EuPho and FlexZ were next with 13 and 12, respectively, while Spique had the least with seven.

While Enxiun and Spique ended up with more kills overall, Spique accidentally killed EupHo with a Cluster Grenade, which caused them to lose the wager in the end.

You can take a look at both the POVs of both EupHo and FlexZ down below:

With the bar now set to over 50 kills, it seems likely that we might see more teams start battling for the top spot.

Warzone player discovers perfect way to counter Airport tower campers

A Warzone player has found the perfect way to counter campers in the Verdansk Airport tower, and it might be the best way to bait those annoying players out and get across the runway.

If you’ve played Warzone even once, you’ll know exactly which tower we mean: the one north of Airport that has only one way up, from which players can easily camp, scout out enemies and lay fire upon those trying to rotate to zone.

Even with the inclusion of external ziplines to many tall buildings in Verdansk, the tower still doesn’t have one, meaning that once players are up there, it’s incredibly difficult to get them down.

Typically, you’ll struggle in a straight gunfight against these players — so what you need to do is bait them out, instead, and capitalize when they’re distracted.

Tower campers are among some of the most annoying players in Warzone.

As showcased below by NadxCH, a helicopter could be your key to infiltrating the tower — though not how you might think.

While many people will have tried to attack head-on while in a helicopter, the plan instantly falls flat if the tower campers have a rocket launcher or explosives of some sort, that will see you and your team come crashing down instantly.

Instead, you need to assign a teammate to fly past in the helicopter after landing up top, and strike while the iron is hot. While the designated driver flies the heli in one direction, you’ll need to jump off the top and plan your parachute perfectly to land in the control room while the opponents have their back turned and are distracted.

Obviously, this will often be easier said than done. Jumping off the top of the tower and timing everything right to land in the control room is a skill you’ll have to practice over and over again to get right, so you’ll have to be confident you can pull it off first.

Secondly, you’ll have to rely on the enemy team being distracted by the helicopter. They likely will be, and will want to take it down while it’s so close, which is why it’s the perfect opportunity to strike.

Otherwise, you might find yourself trapped while trying to traverse the map — and there are few worse types of players to die to than those in Airport tower.
