Week Two for Division B (Week Four overall) at the CWL Pro League Stage 2 has all wrapped up after a third day of matches that all ended with 3-0 scorelines.

With only four matches scheduled for Day Three, the Division B teams head into the mid-season break as they prepare for the $200,000 CWL Anaheim event on June 15h.

The CWL Pro League Stage 2 features a total of 16 teams divided into two Divisions, with the top four team in each Division qualifying for the $500,000 Playoffs.

With so many massive roster changes since the conclusion of Stage 1, many of the teams are putting their new rosters to the test in what will most certainly be a long and highly contested competition.

The day started off with eUnited facing winless Tainted Minds in a matchup of two teams heading opposite ways in Division B. As expected, the match was not close as eUnited got the 3-0 sweep to improve to 4-3, while Tainted Minds fell to 0-7.

The next match featured a red hot UNILAD Esports side getting their fifth straight win as they destroyed Mindfreak by a score of 3-0. The Australians finished the first half of Stage 2 in 7th place with a 2-5 record.

In the third match of the day, Luminosity Gaming finally ended their 4 game winning streak with a 3-0 destruction of compLexity Gaming. Despite the victory, LG go into the break at an underwhelming 3-4, the same record as their opponents coL.

After starting their Stage 2 season with an 0-2 record, UNILAD have won five straight to climb all the way to third place heading into the break.

The final match was the highly anticipated Match of the Day featuring the top two teams of Division B – OpTic Gaming and Rise Nation. 

The match started off with a slaughter as Rise “100 pointed clubbed” OpTic on the Sainte Marie Du Monte Hardpoint 250-74. Another dominant 6-1 victory on the Ardennes Forest S&D gave Rise a comfortable 2-0 edge. 

Trying to close out the series, Rise took the Game 3 CTF 5-2 to complete the sweep and their humiliating domination of OpTic. The victory improved them to 6-1 and gave them sole possession of first place in Division B.

Meanwhile, OpTic lost their second straight match after starting off 5-0 and will go into the break looking for answers before next week’s CWL Anaheim tournament.

Warzone FOV setting on PC can reduce visual recoil on weapons

Call of Duty players have uncovered an unusual field-of-view setting in Warzone, claiming that weapons such as the CR-AMAX seem to have less visual recoil when it is toggled.

The weapon meta is continuing to shift in Warzone as more changes are released in Season 6, giving players plenty of unique weapons and playstyle to try in the battle royale.

Popular YouTuber Swagg was one of the latest to reveal a Season 6 loadout for Warzone but claimed there was also a “secret” setting that was helping him to rack up more kills in-game.

CoD players like Swagg have claimed that Warzone’s FOV settings can affect recoil in-game.

While the CR-56 AMAX, which was featured as the Galil in past CoD titles, has been a solid weapon since its release, there are, apparently, some field-of-view settings that Warzone players can change to make the gun easier to use.

In his October 24 upload, Swagg revealed that having the “Affected FOV” setting enabled makes it seem as if the AMAX has little to no recoil. This is opposed to the default Independent FOV setting.

“Affected FOV on PC makes guns feel like they don’t have recoil,” Swagg revealed, in his Warzone gameplay, “[it’s the] reason why I use Amax now.”

Topic starts at 2:15

The AMAX does not usually stand out above other Assault Rifles in its class, but it still has one of the highest base stats when it comes to damage per second (DPS), meaning that less recoil would make this quite a strong choice in the current meta.

While the weapon, with these affected FOV settings, appears to move less compared to CR-56 AMAX gameplay for console players, it is unclear whether or not it actually has a major effect on the gun.

However, it seemed to be working quite well for Swagg, as he highlighted just how strong it could be, managing to pick up plenty of kills in his Warzone match with fellow content creator booya.

Another CoD YouTuber Webzy has previously highlighted the difference in recoil between the Affected and Independent settings, echoing the sentiment of the FaZe member and claiming it was actually easier to hit shots with it enabled.

Infinity Ward is regularly coming out with fixes for any bugs found in-game but it appears as if this FOV setting was intended to be a feature, making it unclear whether or not this will be patched.
