The compLexity Gaming Call of Duty team have released a new video in which they explain the meaning behind certain words used in competitive CoD, with some hilarious explanations.

CoD esports, similarly to many other esports especially other FPS titles, has a unique set of terminology which to untrained ear might sound like complete gibberish.

In an attempt to help those who may be unfamiliar, the compLexity squad of Doug “Censor” Martin, Ricky “Ricky” Stacy, Rasim “Blazt” Ogresevic and Brandon “Dashy” Otell are on hand to give you a run through of some of the more obscure terms.

The classics and standard words are all there, such as ‘absolute’, ‘Gamebattles’ and ‘pro points’, as well as some of the more obscure ones like ‘turnt’ and ‘fried’.

Perhaps the best explanation though, was Censor’s example of the term ‘burger’. Some have attributed the use of this word in CoD to 2013 World Champion Adam “Sloss” KiLLa, and it remains common to this day.

“Anyone can be a burger, it doesn’t have to be specific players. Like, FormaL is a burger right now, though FormaL is a champs MVP – he’s a burger right now.

A burger is someone who doesn’t want to put in the effort to play, doesn’t want to get better, doesn’t try to get better, isn’t winning their gunfights. It’s when you are doing everything wrong as a player. I think what defines a player as a burger is someone who believes they’re a burger.”

They also broke down the classic term “lost full”, which has been popularized in Call of Duty over some years now – this time giving an example of his own teammate.

“Lost full is when you just get really upset with your teammates or a situation in the game and you get enraged. So you lose ‘full composure’, meaning you don’t have your composure anymore and keeping your composure in Call of Duty is very important.”

Dashy gave the example of his teammate Ricky, showing even a veteran in the competitive scene will lose their composure occasionally.

“Against eUnited it was bad, he was screaming like ‘what are we doing?!’, ‘Brandon why are you challenging?! Just stay alive!’ – he’s going to see this and be so pissed.”

Black Ops Cold War PlayStation-exclusive Zombies mode revealed

Just a few short weeks ahead of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s official launch, Activision and Sony have announced a brand new Zombies: Onslaught mode. It will be exclusive to PlayStation consoles, at least for a little while, before coming to other platforms.

According to PlayStation, a new Black Ops Cold War Zombies mode titled Onslaught will be exclusively available to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 players for almost an entire year before coming to other platforms.

The mode itself is a simple variation of the classic Zombies experience: Two players will be dropped into maps from the game’s base multiplayer mode and will be forced to fight the undead in specific sections of the map, marked by a Dark Aether Orb. After taking out enough enemies, the section will move, forcing the player themselves to move as well.

Onslaught players will be dropped into multiplayer maps and forced to fight the undead.

Like the normal Zombies mode in Black Ops Cold War, players will be able to use their custom classes in Onslaught, allowing you to fight the way that you want. This is certainly a welcome addition, although an expected one.

During the match itself, different enemies will spawn in, including a type called Elites. Taking out these zombies is apparently be what players should shoot for (no pun intended) when fighting through Onslaught matches, as they’ll directly affect your ranking when you finish.

Depending on the rank you achieve, you’ll be able to earn rewards for both Multiplayer and Zombies, further bridging the two modes. Currently, it’s unknown exactly what the rewards are, although it’ll more than likely be calling cards, emblems, and weapon blueprints.

While this news is certainly exciting for PlayStation players, fans on Xbox and PC are going to, once again, be left in the dark until November 1, 2021. Modern Warfare’s Survival mode was exclusive to PS4 in 2019 and, while it ended up not being received very well, it was still a bummer for players on other platforms as it was content that was simply locked out.

Black Ops Cold War is set to release on PS4, PS5, the Xbox family of consoles, and PC on November 13, 2020.
