A number of Call of Duty professionals, including Dashy, JKap and SlasheR, have trolled Modern Warfare following media training at the Call of Duty League player summit. 

Competitive Call of Duty’s transition into a franchise-based league means pros will be held to different standards as they represent their new teams and league. 

The ongoing Call of Duty League ‘Player Summit’ has been marked on Twitter with regular images and information on players of all teams. However, it appears a number of pros are unhappy with the rules pertaining to game criticism, something they appeared to mock on December 13. 

ActivisionThe Call of Duty League World Tour will launch in Minnesota and travel across Europe & North America.

The rules surrounding game criticism have been ambiguous thus far, with pros generally allowed to express their frustrations with the game. 

However, while unconfirmed, it appears that the rules for players will be much stricter going into the CDL’s inaugural season. 

Dillon ‘Attach’ Price, former World Champion and pro player for New York Subliners, joked that there were things he could no longer do or say, following his social media training from the CDL.

However, a number of pros began to troll Modern Warfare, simultaneously tweeting: “I love Modern Warfare”, followed by a thumbs-up emoji. 

Players from all teams took part in the trolling, seemingly to mock the new, austere social media rules. 

While unconfirmed, it seems that players will not be able to criticize Modern Warfare as freely as they have past CoD titles. Some fans have even suggested that doing so would result in a fine from Activision – again unconfirmed. The Call of Duty publishers are heavily involved with the organization and funding of the Call of Duty League. 

TwitterThe mocking tweets were sent by players of all teams.

Many pros have complained in the past at the lack of consultation and collaboration made by development studios, arguing that they have the knowledge to improve Call of Duty games. 

There have also been incidents in other esports, regarding pros being punished harshly for criticism of developers or the game. Back in November, FIFA pro Kurt0411 was banned from EA’s soccer simulation after spitting on the developer’s logo during a furious rant

The exact contents of the meetings between professional players and league organizers remains private, so it’s unknown what exactly prompted the wave of sarcasm across social media.

The QBZ-83 is may not be as strong or as accurate as the AK-47, but its superior mobility and handling make it a great pick. Here all the perks, attachments, and equipment you need to push this assault rifle to its peak. 

Whether you’re looking to level up every gun to grab those ultra-rare camos or just wanting to give the QBZ-83 a go, then you’ll want to use this loadout. This assault rifle is often overlooked by a lot of players and it’s currently one of the least used guns in the assault rifle category. However, if you’re willing to put in the effort into learning the QBZ, you’ll find that it is a pretty well-round rifle. 

This loadout boosts the QBZ-83’s already great speed, but also increases the gun’s accuracy and firepower. If you’re after an AR that can go toe to toe with the game’s SMGs, then look no further. In order to help you get the most out of the QBZ-83, we’ve put together a reliable loadout you can use to get those deadly Scorestreaks.

Best QBZ-83 loadout for Black Ops Cold War

The recent FFAR 1 and M16 nerfs have made the QBZ-83 a more viable option.
  • Muzzle: Infantry Compensator 
  • Barrel: 15.5” Reinforced Heavy
  • Underbarrel:Foregrip
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap 
  • Stock: Raider Stock

Secondary

  • 1911

Throwables

  • Stimshot
  • Semtex
  • Field Mic

Perks

  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket + Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Assassin + Scavenger 
  • Perk 3: Ninja + Ghost

Wildcard

  • Perk Greed

Due to the QBZ-83 having a very clear default sight, we’ve saved the attachment slot to make a much more comfy build. The Infantry Compensator and Foregrip help control both the gun’s horizontal and vertical recoil. This enables you to remain accurate at medium to long ranges. 

Adding to this is the 15.5” Heavy. Not only does this attachment increase the AR’s bullet velocity by a significant 40%, but it also increases the gun’s damage range by 100%. Whether you’re planning to play on the game’s bigger maps or just wanting to increase your kill potential, then the Reinforced Heavy is a must. 

Rounding things off at the bottom, is the Airborne Elastic Wrap and Raider Stock. These attachments increase ADS and sprint to fire time, allowing you to aggressively rush your foes without having to worry about sluggish performance. 

In terms of equipment, the standard Stimshot, Semtex, and Field Mic have been chosen. These items will keep you on your feet and enable you to get the drop on any potential targets.

The QBZ-83’s speed and firepower makes for some blisteringly fast kills.

This loadout uses Perk Greed, which allows players to take six perks. The combination of Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask will keep you safe from any explosives and noxious gas. These perks are important for most loadouts, but especially hyper-aggressive ones that prefer the run and gun approach to combat.

Meanwhile, Assassin reveals high priority targets and enables you to get the drop on any enemies who are on killstreaks. Scavenger also replenishes the QBZ-83’s ammo from fallen players, so you’ll never have to hunt for another gun when your ammo is low. 

Lastly, Ghost and Ninja keep your movements hidden from prying eyes and enable you to go for those sneaky flanks. After all, this loadout favors both close to mid-range firefights, so don’t be afraid to get into the very thick of a fight.
