Crimsix humiliates ex-OpTic teammates in Modern Warfare video

Dallas Empire CoD pro, Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter, has fired a cheeky shot at his ex OpTic teammates, following an incredibly one-sided scrim which saw the Dallas squad 20-point-club his old allies. 

Despite a turbulent last couple of years, Crimsix was ever-present on the OpTic Gaming roster, leading the team to a tournament win in Black Ops 4 with the new roster. Their incredibly exciting squad never quite capitalized on their potential however, finishing a disappointing third at the final CWL Champs

This then saw the roster split almost entirely. Karma jetted off to the west coast to play for Seattle, Scump followed H3CZ to Chicago and the Crimbot stayed in Texas to represent Dallas. TJHaLy and Dashy stuck together as they went to the Los Angeles spot acquired by OpTic

Scrims are underway in Modern Warfare now, with the newly formed franchises pitting their wits against one another. Early (and unofficial) Modern Warfare scrim records suggest Dallas and Chicago are off to the strongest starts, with Toronto and both LA franchises struggling. 

Crimsix’ latest YouTube upload certainly seems to confirm that OpTic Gaming Los Angeles are struggling to find some early form. 

Despite boasting a powerhouse lineup of Dashy, TJHaLy, Slasher, Kenny and JKap, the OpTic LA roster were dispatched by Dallas in one hardpoint match, losing by a whopping 231 points. This was chronicled in a November 9 YouTube upload from Crimsix, entitled ‘OpTic join the first-ever Modern Warfare 20 point club’

Fans will immediately take notice of the thumbnail for the video, which shows Crim’s two former teammates, accompanied by the veteran player flipping them off. 

The Hackney Yard hardpoint starts as it means to go on, with Dallas flying out to 100 points, without OpTic registering a single point in reply. 

In the latter parts of the match, when it is clear Dallas are going to steamroll their opponents, a number of the Texan roster’s players can be heard vocalizing their shock at how poor their opponents are. 

The final scoreboard reflects the level of the beating OpTic just took – with only Dashy getting into double-figures for kills. The rest of his team combines for a meagre 30 kills.

Crimsix and his teammates can be heard laughing at the poor performance LA just put on. 

However, despite LA OpTic struggling in their early scrims on Modern Warfare, the roster led by Dashy should not be written off. 

They boast an incredible lineup, consisting of both veterans and three of the best young prospects in competitive CoD. LA OpTic are likely just experiencing some teething issues on Infinity Ward’s new title; teething issues Dallas Empire don’t seem to be afflicted with.

Black Ops Cold War Season 1 weapons, maps, scorestreaks leaked

About a month after its release, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s Season 1 is expected to release on December 10. And, weeks before that highly anticipated date, leakers have revealed maps, weapons, and scorestreaks coming to the game.

For the first time in Call of Duty’s history, Warzone will not only allow cross-play between different consoles and systems, but also between content from two distinct CoD titles.

On December 10, Treyarch enthusiasts get to enjoy Black Ops Cold War’s first season of new content, and the chance to bring that content over to Verdansk.

Theoretically, that means players will be able to use loadouts with a Modern Warfare AK-47 alongside a Black Ops Cold War AK-74u. But, according to leakers such as ‘WarzoneNewz’ and ‘CODColdWarNewz’ on Twitter, there will be even more guns to choose from in Season 1.

As WarzoneNewz explains, there will be four new maps, two new guns, and one new scorestreak launching on December 10. While they don’t have pictures of the incoming maps or the scorestreak, they have revealed glimpses of each weapon.

Four new maps have been revealed for Season 1: Dune, Mall, Apocalypse, and Echeleon. While Echeleon sounds like a sci-fi misspelling of the word “echelon” that would suit BOCW’s Zombies mode, it is the more fittingly named Apocalypse that is expected to be a map solely made for that mode.

Both new weapons are expected to be automatic, but the Groza is a bullpup assault rifle, based on the Russian OTs-14, which itself is based on the AK-74u. From leaked pictures, it appears similar to Modern Warfare’s RAM-7: a stocky, mobile AR with room for a fat magazine.

The other new leaked weapon is also automatic, but has been confirmed to be a shotgun (although its name remains unclear). Described as a “full auto shotgun” by WarzoneNewz, the included picture shows a long, slender build that feels closer to an LMG than an actual, chunky shotgun.

Nonetheless, a full-auto shotgun echoes the JAK-12, which was released to Modern Warfare and Warzone in Season 6.

The final point of intrigue among these leaks is the “K9 Unit” scorestreak. Fans of Treyarch’s last title, Black Ops 4, are very familiar with the decimation dogs can bring to Call of Duty, as the game’s Nomad Specialist had an Attack Dog companion.

Dogs have helped Black Ops players across numerous titles, but they appear ready to make their return in BOCW for Season 1’s launch. In the meantime, we’ll be keeping an eye out for any other leaks and news.
