The CWL season has led up to a Finals event filled with major headlines for championship contenders 100 Thieves, OpTic, FaZe Clan and more. Even though some have been playing out of their minds, others are having trouble finding their offense resulting in quick tournament exits.

Coming to the tail-end of the second day in Miami, OpTic Gaming found themselves in a quick hole getting sent to the losers bracket in a quick 0-3 effort against Luminosity Gaming.

OpTic get eliminated at CWL Finals

OpTic had a hard time getting into their groove throughout their time in the CWL Finals, but Greenwall fans were still hoping to see their team show signs of life against the 100 Thieves who also found themselves in the Loser’s Bracket.

Those signs of life weren’t flaring during the opening map on Gridlock Hardpoint, as the 100 Thieves were incredibly active on the map. Their offense made it hard for OpTic to get much going, quickly conceding the first game 166-250.

CWLGiven the map selection and talent on paper, the series between OpTic and 100 Thieves looked to be pretty competitive.

Though it was OpTic who started to fight back during S and D Hacienda, but the Thieves weren’t letting up. While OpTic were able to come within reach of tying up the series, a convincing 100 Thieves defense killed any hope the Greenwall had of nabbing their first map.

100 Thieves capitalized on their momentum in the next map on Seaside Control, getting the better of a beaten OpTic side 3-1.

The win allowed 100 Thieves to move on while ending OpTic’s run at the CWL Finals. OpTic Gaming finish in 7-8 place alongside Splyce, each taking home $18,750.

Winner’s Finals features heavy competition

Two teams having strong CWL Finals showings are ready to go head-to-head to see who locks in their right to play in the Grand Finals.

FaZe Clan and eUnited have been tournament stunners so far. FaZe Clan had to get through the likes of the 100 Thieves in the second round and Luminosity Gaming right after, only conceding one map in both matchups.

The eUnited squad fall under the same category having 3-0’d Reciprocity, and taking a convincing 3-1 series against Gen.G.

Both teams haven’t been giving their opponents much room to operate in their respective series, making the Winner’s Final a heavy bout between two teams playing out of their minds.

Black Ops Cold War is certainly no stranger to burst fire weapons, particularly those of the assault rifle kind. However, there is also one SMG that shares this firing pattern. Here are all the attachments you should be using to unleash the KSP 45’s full potential.

The KSP 45 may not be your go-to SMG in Black Ops Cold War, especially when the likes of the MP5 and Milano dominate the category. However, despite being a three-round burst weapon, the KSP 45 offers great damage and decent range. Only one burst is needed to drop an enemy in close-quarters engagements, while two are needed at mid-range. 

This deadly gun blends both AR and SMG playstyle together, making it a great choice for those that want to remain competitive across all distances. In order to help you get the most out of the KSP 45 in Treyarch’s latest title, we’ve created a loadout that will help you secure more frags in no time. 

Best KSP 45 loadout in Black Ops Cold War

This loadout balances the KSP 45’s range and close-quarter effectiveness.

Here’s how you need to kit out your KS5 45 SMG to dish out the most damage across all ranges. 

Attachments

  • Barrel: 10.5 Reinforced Heavy 
  • Body: SWAT 5MW Laser Sight
  • Underbarrel: Front Grip
  • Magazine: 42 RND
  • Stock: Tactical 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

Whether you prefer to seek out close-quarter firefights or take down foes in mid-range engagements with deadly precision, then this KSP 45 loadout will enable you to do just that. The 10.5 Reinforced Heavy increases the SMG’s effectiveness at range and bolsters its bullet velocity. 

Combine this with the horizontal recoil control from the Front Grip and you have an extremely accurate SMG. While the KSP 45 will still struggle to outgun the game’s meta assault rifles, you’ll at least have a fighting chance. After all, being able to take down mid-range targets in just two bursts is hardly anything to scoff at. 

Meanwhile, the SWAT 5MW Laser Sight improves the gun’s hip-fire accuracy. Mobility and ADS speed remains a big part of Black Ops Cold War, especially when you’re playing on maps like Nuketwon ‘84. As a result, being able to accurately kill any targets without ever looking down your gun’s sights is great.

The 42 RND Mags ensure you have plenty of ammo when it comes to snagging those game-winning multi-kills. Lastly, the Tactical Stock increases aim walking movement speed, enabling you to keep on your toes and quickly sweep those corners.

The KSP 45 may not be as dominant as the MP5, but it still packs a punch.

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.

Assassin enables you to shut down any enemies that are currently on killstreaks, while Scavenger keeps your ammunition reserves healthy. Lastly, Ghost and Ninja keep you hidden from pesky enemy spy planes and silences your footsteps. 

In terms of equipment, we’ve chosen the standard Stimshot, Semtex, and Field Mic items. Having the healing from Stimshot will keep you fighting, while the Field Mic allows you to pick up on any enemy movements. 


So there you have it, an extremely deadly and versatile KSP 45 loadout. If you want to keep updated with all the latest Call of Duty news and updates, then follow us over on @DexertoIntel
