James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks has unveiled why there was a “weird dynamic” between him and the then OpTic Gaming captain, Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag, during a chat with Hector ‘Hecz’ Rodriquez.

6050 Russell Drive. Has there ever been a more iconic house in esports? Where OpTic Gaming began its expansion into content creation while leading the GreenWall into various esports. 

A staple to OpTic’s history, 6050 Russell Drive provided an abundance of memories for their fans. However, the grass wasn’t always greener on the other side, as two-time world champ, Clayster, has unveiled during Hecz’s Eavesdrop Podcast.

Clay joined the GreenWall in January 2014.

At this stage in his career, Nadeshot was the face of OpTic Gaming and a leader of the GreenWall, both in and out of the server, while Clayster seemed like the perfect fit to help correct the string of poor results OpTic had been facing.

On paper, two natural-born leaders in a four-man squad was a recipe for disaster… and this prevailed to be the case. When prompted about his time under OpTic, Clayster opened by suggesting that both he and Nadeshot had a “weird dynamic.”

The Dallas Empire pro stated: “He thought I was kind of stepping on his toes a little bit, almost at all times,” after which Hecz interjected by affirming Clay’s leader status. “I’m sure I’m at fault here too… You know, I wasn’t exactly the most compromising guy back then, Eubanks explained. “We would just butt heads a lot.”

Video segment starts at 25:00 for mobile users. 

Despite being at odds with Nadeshot, Clayster looked back on his time under the OpTic banner with fondness. 

“You don’t really have that camaraderie much any more,” Clay said. “The four dudes, trying to make it, living in a house, just playing Call of Duty all of the time… It’s special to me.”

It remains special to this day to many fans, too. Many look back on the days at 6050 as their way in to esports; a group of people that they could relate to, enjoy and watch on a daily basis.

Both Nade and Clay won gold at the MLG X Games Invitational under OpTic Gaming.

While Hecz and Clayster harked back on old times, they also discussed more pressing matters, such as why Modern Warfare might not be the best title to embark on a franchised league with

Best Type 63 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Type 63 is capable of dishing out some incredible damage thanks to its methodical firing pattern and excellent precision. Here are all the attachments you should be using when running and gunning with the Type 63. 

If you’re a fan of Black Ops Cold War’s Tactical Rifle class or a player that prefers a more methodical approach to combat, then the Type 63 is one weapon you’ll want to focus on leveling up. While burst fire weapons like the M16 and AUG continue to dominate the game, there have been a number of players picking up this reliable rifle. 

Despite its slower rate of fire, this tactical rifle is capable of killing an enemy in just two shots (one body shot and one headshot). The Type 63 is a great option for those that want the damage of a sniper, but wish to be more active in their playstyle. If you have a good trigger finger and decent aim, you’ll definitely want to add the Type 63 to your collection. 

In order to help you get the most kills with the Type 63, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

The Type 63 is one of the most lethal weapons in the entire game.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Type 63 in Black Ops Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex 
  • Spetsnaz Compensator 
  • 18.3” Strike Team
  • KGB Target Designator 
  • Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip
  • 30 RND
  • Gru Elastic Wrap
  • KGB Pad

While you can still make a decent Type 63 loadout without the extra three attachment slots given by the Gunfighter wildcard, the extra kit makes this build extremely comfy. First up is the Millstop Reflex. This is one of the only optics available that doesn’t clutter the screen or provide a great deal of magnification. 

While the 2.0x and 4.0x optics may give you greater precision on the game’s larger maps and modes, the vast majority favor close-quarter engagements. This is also why the 18.3” Strike Team barrel has been chosen. This handy attachment increases your fire rate by 11%, allowing you to get out more shots onto the target. 

It also increases your damage by 9%. While this may seem like an incremental increase, it does make a noticeable difference when combined with a higher rate of fire. To alleviate the Type 63’s horizontal/vertical recoil, we’ve attached both the Spetsnaz Compensator and Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip.

The Type 63 may not be the most popular gun, but its high DPS makes it a worthy pick.

These attachments make the Type 63 incredibly accurate across all ranges, allowing you to beam opponents with laser-like precision. The bullets will always form in a tight circle around your target, so there’s no need to wrestle with any recoil. Simply point and shoot. 

As you may know by now, visibility in Black Ops Cold War can be rather poor. Even if you follow our visibility guide, there will still be times where you get caught out by pesky head glitches. Fortunately, the KGB Target Designator adds 60% Reveal Distance when aiming down sights. 

The Gru Elastic Wrap is one of the most important attachments as it increases ADS time (30%), Flinch Resistance (90%), and enables aiming while going prone. Combine this with the Sprint to Fire and additional Aim Walking Movement Speed of the KGB Pad, and you have an incredibly mobile rifle that is capable of blistering fast kill times.
