FaZe Clan’s Doug ‘Censor‘ Martin raised over $4,000 dollars for victims of the recent mass shootings after holding a six-hour charity live stream. 

On August 3 and 4, members of the El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio communities suffered tragic losses as mass shootings rocked the United States once again. While politicians have been quick to blame “gruesome” video games as a problem, the gaming community has stepped up to help.

Former Call of Duty professional Censor explained that he wanted to play his part in helping families recover from the tragedy by trying to raise some money to help ease the financial burden of saying goodbye to a loved one.

YouTube/CensorThe former Call of Duty player admitted to wanting to playing his role in making a charity event happen.

During his charity stream on August 5, Censor stuck to Black Ops 4 for over six hours – playing Blackout alongside players like BobbyPoff and OpTic Gaming‘s Patryk ‘Rallied Salata. Of course, his fans and passing viewers dug into their pockets to help support the cause – with big and small donations alike. 

After all was said and done, Martin revealed the final amount that was raised in a Twitter post thanking everyone for playing their part in helping. “We raised a total of $4,125.99 in our stream today for the families of the victims involved in the horrific shootings over the weekend,” he tweeted. 

“I know we can’t fix what was done, but I’m sure this money helps a little bit. Thank you to the community for aiding these people, they need it.”

After revealing the total amount raised, the Call of Duty community praised the former FaZe Clan star for stepping up and making a difference – especially in such a time of need. 

eUnited star Preston ‘Prestinni’ Sanderson tweeted: “GOAT. Truly unmatched in every way,” with the typical Goat emoji attached.

While Censor did not confirm just how he would be spreading the money around, he did seek out help from his fans to put him in contact with the best possible organization so that everyone affected gets some help – no matter what the amount may be.

Warzone FOV setting on PC can reduce visual recoil on weapons

Call of Duty players have uncovered an unusual field-of-view setting in Warzone, claiming that weapons such as the CR-AMAX seem to have less visual recoil when it is toggled.

The weapon meta is continuing to shift in Warzone as more changes are released in Season 6, giving players plenty of unique weapons and playstyle to try in the battle royale.

Popular YouTuber Swagg was one of the latest to reveal a Season 6 loadout for Warzone but claimed there was also a “secret” setting that was helping him to rack up more kills in-game.

CoD players like Swagg have claimed that Warzone’s FOV settings can affect recoil in-game.

While the CR-56 AMAX, which was featured as the Galil in past CoD titles, has been a solid weapon since its release, there are, apparently, some field-of-view settings that Warzone players can change to make the gun easier to use.

In his October 24 upload, Swagg revealed that having the “Affected FOV” setting enabled makes it seem as if the AMAX has little to no recoil. This is opposed to the default Independent FOV setting.

“Affected FOV on PC makes guns feel like they don’t have recoil,” Swagg revealed, in his Warzone gameplay, “[it’s the] reason why I use Amax now.”

The AMAX does not usually stand out above other Assault Rifles in its class, but it still has one of the highest base stats when it comes to damage per second (DPS), meaning that less recoil would make this quite a strong choice in the current meta.

While the weapon, with these affected FOV settings, appears to move less compared to CR-56 AMAX gameplay for console players, it is unclear whether or not it actually has a major effect on the gun.

However, it seemed to be working quite well for Swagg, as he highlighted just how strong it could be, managing to pick up plenty of kills in his Warzone match with fellow content creator booya.

Another CoD YouTuber Webzy has previously highlighted the difference in recoil between the Affected and Independent settings, echoing the sentiment of the FaZe member and claiming it was actually easier to hit shots with it enabled.

Infinity Ward is regularly coming out with fixes for any bugs found in-game but it appears as if this FOV setting was intended to be a feature, making it unclear whether or not this will be patched.
