Crimsix and Slacked lock horns over Luminosity being ‘blacklisted’ in Black Ops 4

Controversy continues to brew in professional Call of Duty, all over a gentleman’s (dis)agreement, as Luminosity Gaming players have reportedly been ‘blacklisted’ from scrims and pick-up games.

After winning CWL Fort Worth, Luminosity’s Nicholas ‘Classic’ DiCostanzo thanked the ‘Rampart’ assault rifle for helping his side to victory.

However, that same weapon is now the cause of Luminosity’s current situation, which sees them being blocked from practicing with and against other professional teams.

MLGClassic’s Rampart played a big part in LG’s win at Fort Worth.

It appears that following their victory, other professional teams are fighting to have to Rampart permanently removed from the weapon pool, by way of an unofficial ‘gentleman’s agreement’.

The weapon is viewed by some players to be too powerful and therefore detrimental to the overall ‘meta’ of the game – but Classic and LG are standing firm, and plan to continue using the weapon, gentleman’s agreement or not.

Clips surfaced from a number of livestreams showing Luminosity’s Classic being kicked from a lobby due to being ‘blacklisted’.

Other LG players, including Josiah ‘Slacked‘ Berry were given similar treatment, simply by their decision to side with their teammate on the Rampart debate.

OpTic Gaming‘s Ian ‘Crimsix‘ Porter has been placed at the forefront of the debate. He argues that all players with the exception of Classic (79:1) are in support of the Rampart GA, in responding to analyst and former pro Anthony ‘NAMELESS‘ Wheeler.

NAMELESS responded by suggesting that Call of Duty appears to be the only esport where players are unwilling to adapt to a new meta if it doesn’t suit their team, but Crimsix actually explained that he believes OpTic would benefit from the Rampart being allowed.

However, he explains that the gun is just “so cheesy”, and it’s inclusion would ruin an otherwise “perfect meta”.

For now, the issue remains unresolved, with LG appearing to forgo practice in favor of continuing to stand their ground on using the Rampart.

Gentleman’s agreements have typically been quickly agreed by all teams, or at least enough of a majority to push the decision through, but things are getting trickier now that one team in particular is benefitting so much from a certain weapon.

Best Krig 6 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Krig 6 has slowly been creeping into the meta spotlight after the recent FFAR and M16 nerfs, so find out which attachments you should equip to increase this gun’s lethality. 

This deadly assault rifle delivers excellent precision and deals great damage across all ranges, making it one the most viable assault rifles in the current meta. This full-auto AR boasts excellent weapon control and quick reloads, while its methodical fire rate helps minimize recoil and keeps your shots accurate. 

It may not deal as much damage as the game’s AK-74, but its excellent accuracy more than makes up for that. The Krig 6’s minimal recoil also allows it to excel across Black Op’s Cold War’s larger-scale maps and modes. Whether it will be a meta defining gun when it’s added to Warzone remains to be seen, but it’s more than likely that this gun will likely prove to be a popular pick. 

In order to help you get the most out of the Krig 6, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

Best Krig 6 loadout

Activision / Treyarch
The Krig 6 barely has any recoil when kitted out with these attachments.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Krig 6 in Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex
  • Infantry Compensator 
  • 19.7” Ranger
  • SOF Target Designator
  • Foregrip
  • 40 RND
  • Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Raider Stock 

By picking the Gunfighter wildcard, you can equip a total of eight attachments which gives you a great deal of flexibility when it comes to building the perfect loadout. The Millstop Reflex provides the Krig 6 with a clean sight that doesn’t clutter the screen, allowing you to easily spot enemies at a distance. 

Combine this with the 60% reveal distance from the SOF Target Designator and you’ll be able to snap onto the most well-hidden foes. After all, visibility remains a big problem in Black Ops Cold War, so having any attachments that help improve this is huge. 

Next up is the Infantry Compensator and Foregrip which diminish horizontal recoil by 27%, which makes the Krig 6 incredibly accurate. In fact, the recoil on this setup is so minimal that it effectively allows you to beam opponents across all distances. 

Bullet Velocity is also incredibly important in Black Ops Cold War and it is often the reason why the hit detection of certain weapons can feel a little off. After all, being able to quickly drop your foe before they can even react is always going to be beneficial, so the 19.7” Ranger is a must.

Activision / Treyarch
The Krig 6 is steadily climbing up the popularity rankings.

Another top pick is the Airborne Elastic Wrap. This incredible attachment increases the Krig 6’s aim down sight time, gives you 90% Flinch Resistance, and allows you to aim while going prone. ADS speed is just as important in Black Ops Cold War as it was in Modern Warfare, particularly for any AR loadouts that want to be competitive against the game’s SMGs. 

Meanwhile, the added 90% Flinch Resistance also keeps your shots accurate even when you take damage. This will often enable you to counter your attackers with high precision shots. The Raider Stock also increases the AR’s Sprint to Fire time and Aim Walking Speed, giving you a great reactionary playstyle that can quickly melt foes in close-quarter firefights. 

While the 50 RND mag attachment offers a great deal of firepower, its reduction in ADS time makes it less optimal for standard multiplayer. As a result, the 40 RND variant has been used instead. The Krig 6 is capable of melting through multiple foes in a few bullets, so the 40 RND mag is more than enough.
