With the inaugural 2020 season fast approaching, the Call of Duty League has commissioned the production of custom CDL-themed Nike Air Force 1 sneakers, which are now available for fans to enter to win.

The launch of the 2020 regular season of the newly-formed Call of Duty League is less than two weeks away, and it looks like the CDL has pulled all the stops to make sure its inaugural campaign is a memorable one.

On January 17, they revealed a collaboration with “Kickstradomis,” a popular artist and shoe designer, who created exclusive Nike shoes themed with the league’s branding.

The CDL revealed the sneakers on January 17 with a video featuring Kickstradomis. The designer used both white and black Air Force 1’s for this project.

Each pair features a bunch of miniaturized versions of the CDL logo on the front and sides, one giant logo on the outside of each sneaker, and ‘EST. 2020’ on the inside of the sole, representing the league’s founding year of 2020.

In the video, Kickstradomis talked about the project and gave some insight as to what inspired him to choose the design that he ended up using.

“The colors of the League are white, black, and gray, keeping it monochromatic,” he explained. “So it’s really cool to be able to use these colors and still make something pop. The Call of Duty League logo has three pillars, and they all represent something different. So, in this custom that I’m doing, I’m going to try to do justice to those three pillars.”

He even designed a special pair for CDL commissioner Johanna Faries, whose sneakers now say the word “COMMISSIONER” in large letters on the outer sole.

As part of this collaboration, Kickstradomis created a single pair of size 10 sneakers for the CDL to give away.

In order to enter for a chance to win this one-of-a-kind pair of shoes, you must visit the contest’s official webpage, enter the required information, agree to the terms and conditions and click submit.

The contest is open to all legal residents of 50 states and DC who are 18 years of age or older – but not too much time is left to enter, as it will be wrapping up on January 23.

Best Krig 6 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Krig 6 has slowly been creeping into the meta spotlight after the recent FFAR and M16 nerfs, so find out which attachments you should equip to increase this gun’s lethality. 

This deadly assault rifle delivers excellent precision and deals great damage across all ranges, making it one the most viable assault rifles in the current meta. This full-auto AR boasts excellent weapon control and quick reloads, while its methodical fire rate helps minimize recoil and keeps your shots accurate. 

It may not deal as much damage as the game’s AK-74, but its excellent accuracy more than makes up for that. The Krig 6’s minimal recoil also allows it to excel across Black Op’s Cold War’s larger-scale maps and modes. Whether it will be a meta defining gun when it’s added to Warzone remains to be seen, but it’s more than likely that this gun will likely prove to be a popular pick. 

In order to help you get the most out of the Krig 6, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

The Krig 6 barely has any recoil when kitted out with these attachments.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Krig 6 in Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex
  • Infantry Compensator 
  • 19.7” Ranger
  • SOF Target Designator
  • Foregrip
  • 40 RND
  • Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Raider Stock 

By picking the Gunfighter wildcard, you can equip a total of eight attachments which gives you a great deal of flexibility when it comes to building the perfect loadout. The Millstop Reflex provides the Krig 6 with a clean sight that doesn’t clutter the screen, allowing you to easily spot enemies at a distance. 

Combine this with the 60% reveal distance from the SOF Target Designator and you’ll be able to snap onto the most well-hidden foes. After all, visibility remains a big problem in Black Ops Cold War, so having any attachments that help improve this is huge. 

Next up is the Infantry Compensator and Foregrip which diminish horizontal recoil by 27%, which makes the Krig 6 incredibly accurate. In fact, the recoil on this setup is so minimal that it effectively allows you to beam opponents across all distances. 

Bullet Velocity is also incredibly important in Black Ops Cold War and it is often the reason why the hit detection of certain weapons can feel a little off. After all, being able to quickly drop your foe before they can even react is always going to be beneficial, so the 19.7” Ranger is a must.

The Krig 6 is steadily climbing up the popularity rankings.

Another top pick is the Airborne Elastic Wrap. This incredible attachment increases the Krig 6’s aim down sight time, gives you 90% Flinch Resistance, and allows you to aim while going prone. ADS speed is just as important in Black Ops Cold War as it was in Modern Warfare, particularly for any AR loadouts that want to be competitive against the game’s SMGs. 

Meanwhile, the added 90% Flinch Resistance also keeps your shots accurate even when you take damage. This will often enable you to counter your attackers with high precision shots. The Raider Stock also increases the AR’s Sprint to Fire time and Aim Walking Speed, giving you a great reactionary playstyle that can quickly melt foes in close-quarter firefights. 

While the 50 RND mag attachment offers a great deal of firepower, its reduction in ADS time makes it less optimal for standard multiplayer. As a result, the 40 RND variant has been used instead. The Krig 6 is capable of melting through multiple foes in a few bullets, so the 40 RND mag is more than enough.
