A clip of an incredibly obvious cheater hitting nothing but headshots in Call of Duty: Black ops 4 has been doing the rounds in the game’s online community, sparking outrage. 

Black ops 4 is the newest iteration of the renowned Call of Duty franchise. Like the games before it, it is a first-person shooter known for its very popular online multiplayer mode. 

Similarly to other FPS games, people compete online in player-versus-player matches to see who is the best. Sometimes certain individuals use cheats to gain an unfair advantage, though, and to do the hard work for them. Often they will attempt to hide their cheats, but other times they just don’t care. 

ActivisionHackers plague Activsion’s Call of Duty: Black ops 4 multiplayer modes.

A clip of a hacker, who didn’t care if people knew they were cheating, was posted to the Black Ops 4 Reddit on July 25 and many viewers thought it was quite terrifying to watch. 

The player knew no remorse and went on a devastating killing spree, instantly headshotting anyone who came into view. He didn’t need to stop or aim, people appeared on his screen and then they were gone. 

What’s worse is that the hacker also knew where everyone was and just ran around eliminating the entire server, sometimes even getting three or four kills in just a second or two. It was absolute carnage.

Whenever a cheater is exposed, they tend to receive a lot of negative attention and this one is no different. Reddit users were very disappointed with this player’s behavior, with comments such as  “I hope he steps on a lego” and “Wtf is even the point like is that fun to them?!” surfacing online. 

While these comments are harsh, especially stepping on a lego, it is easy to see why people feel this way. They play the game to compete on an even footing, not be destroyed by some kind of terminator. 

It’s not all bad news, however, as Activision have a strict anti-cheating policy, and with this much evidence, it should be simple to report this cheater and get them banned so they are not able to ruin any more games.

Unfortunately, stopping one cheater doesn’t stop them all. The players can only be vigilant and report cheaters and then hope for the best. 

This isn’t an issue that is limited just to Call of Duty, other popular games like Apex Legends, PUBG, and CS:GO are also plagued with cheaters and must deal with the same problems.

Best Bullfrog loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Bullfrog is capable of unleashing plenty of highly-damaging rounds in a matter of seconds. While it isn’t as potent as the pre-patch MP5, it’s still a great SMG for those that enjoy the run and gun playstyle. 

With the MP5 taking a significant hit to both its damage and range, many Black Ops Cold War players are now trying to find a worthy replacement. The Milano and AK-74u have been dominating the current SMG bracket, but a lot of players are starting to see just how lethal the Bullfrog can be. This weapon is the last to unlock in the game’s SMG category and while it can take a number of hours to obtain, it’s well worth the grind. 

Whether you prefer to aggressively flank your foes or just want a gun you can rely on in close-quarter fights, the Bullfrog is always a good option. In order to help you get the most out of the Bullfrog, we’ve put together a loadout that maximizes all this gun’s strengths. 

Best Bullfrog loadout

The Bullfrog SMG is certainly no MP5, but it’s still a decent pick.

Here’s the best attachments you can use on your Bullfrog in Black Ops Cold War:

  • Optic: Microflex LED
  • Muzzle: Spetsnaz Compensator
  • Barrel: 7.4” Task Force
  • Body: Steady Aim Laser
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Magazine: VDV 85 RND Fast Mag
  • Handle: Gru Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock

Black Ops Cold War’s maps offer plenty of opportunities for players to best their opponents in close-quarters combat, especially now that Nuketown has made its highly anticipated return. This Gunfighter loadout aims to bolster every aspect of the gun, making it more stable and deadly than ever before. 

First up is the Microflex LED. This optic offers excellent clarity thanks to its unobtrusive design, while the 1.25x zoom makes it perfect for spotting out close to mid-range targets. The Bullfrog does have some pretty strong vertical recoil, so the Spetsnaz Compensator and Spetsnaz Grip have been utilized. 

Even with these attachments, you’ll still need to pull down on your mouse/analog stick to control the bullet spread during mid-range firefights. However, the increased damage range/bullet velocity from the 7.4” Task Force does make it more viable outside of the usual SMG range. 

Of course, it’s still often best to avoid any areas that have particularly big sightlines. Instead, focus on flanking and use the Bullfrog’s great mobility to aggressively rush your enemies.

The Bullfrog is capable of some pretty quick kill times.

The Steady Aim Laser, KGB Skeletal Stock, and Gru Elastic Wrap allow you to be more reactive in your playstyle. Not only do these speed-enhancing attachments give you increased hip fire accuracy and sprint to fire time, they also bolster your ADS time. 

These attachments are the bread and butter of any good SMG class, so you want to use them if you wish to pull off those all-important flanks. Lastly, the VDV 85 RND Fast Mag gives you a huge amount of ammo to melt multiple foes with. 

Whether your aim isn’t as accurate as it used to be or you just want to crack that reload habit, then be sure to equip this magazine. Even if you do find yourself constantly reloading after every shot, the Bullfrog’s reload animation is incredibly fast. 


So there you have it, a well balanced Bullfrog loadout that you can use to wreak havoc across Black Ops Cold War’s smaller maps. If you want to keep updated with all the latest Call of Duty news and updates, then follow us over on @DexertoIntel.
