Dashy fires back at Crimsix as rivalry between ex-OpTic members explodes

The former Call of Duty scene.

With the competitive Call of Duty scene undergoing the most dramatic shift to date ahead of the 2020 franchise-based league, former teammates have turned into bitter rivals. 

Having been “forced out” of the Green Wall, Crimsix recently expanded on his perspective as the OpTic Gaming dynasty crumbled around him. In particular, he took aim at the newest recruits in the form of Brandon ‘Dashy’ Otell and Thomas ‘TJHaLy’ Haly.

Dashy fired back at the comments of his former teammate in a recent Twitch stream. Shooting bots in Black Ops 4 to keep his aim sharp ahead of the release of Modern Warfare, the FPS phenom was quick to lay out his side of the story.

“Listen, I’m good with all my teammates,” Dashy responded after a fan asked during his October 23 broadcast if he and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner were still close after their time together.

“It’s just some of them aren’t good with me because I didn’t want to play with them,” he elaborated, hinting at the drama between former OpTic Gaming members that have since transitioned to various other rosters.

If players revealed they didn’t want to compete alongside certain individuals, they would “get crucified for it,” the Black Ops 4 breakout star said. “Just don’t get sh*t on,” he concluded.

Black Ops 4 resulted in just a single championship victory for the Green Wall at the CWL Las Vegas Open 2019. Despite some historic performances and ridiculous highlights, that event was the peak for the now-defunct OpTic roster.

Crimsix recently took shots at his former teammates and elaborated on his untimely removal from the Green Wall, explaining how it left a bitter taste in his mouth.

There was a great deal of internal conflict that spawned two groups – Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow, Tyler ‘TeePee’ Polchow, and Crimsix in one, against Dashy, Scump, and TJHaLy in the other. 

“The wrong people got too much power,” he stated, claiming that the groups “hated” one another. “I want to get my former team back for everything they put me through, everything I’ve had to deal with, everything that’s gone under-appreciated. I want to put them in the dirt.”

Twitter: CrimsixCrimsix will be competing for the Dallas Empire in the 2020 season.

Commenting on the Twitter thread that promoted the article, Crimsix himself was quick to respond and all but align with Dashy’s recent accusations of poor performances across the Black Ops 4 cycle.

“Wanted to add to this article that I played pretty average throughout BO4, there’s no denying it. Wasn’t my best game, wasn’t the best situation.”

Furthering the drama, Scump outright tagged Dashy and TJ, leading to an amusing back and forth. “We just needed him to kill [Sam ‘Octane’ Larew] once…just one time,” TJHaLy joked.

While rosters have been announced in-full for select franchises such as the Dallas Empire with Crimsix, and the Seattle-based lineup featuring Karma, it remains unclear where the remainder of the former OpTic squad will end up.

If recent leaks are to be trusted however, we might have an early indication. Keep an eye on our dedicated Rostermania hub throughout the off-season to see where some of the hottest prospects in Call of Duty land.

Best Type 63 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

Published: 25/Nov/2020 11:09

The Type 63 is capable of dishing out some incredible damage thanks to its methodical firing pattern and excellent precision. Here are all the attachments you should be using when running and gunning with the Type 63. 

If you’re a fan of Black Ops Cold War’s Tactical Rifle class or a player that prefers a more methodical approach to combat, then the Type 63 is one weapon you’ll want to focus on leveling up. While burst fire weapons like the M16 and AUG continue to dominate the game, there have been a number of players picking up this reliable rifle. 

Despite its slower rate of fire, this tactical rifle is capable of killing an enemy in just two shots (one body shot and one headshot). The Type 63 is a great option for those that want the damage of a sniper, but wish to be more active in their playstyle. If you have a good trigger finger and decent aim, you’ll definitely want to add the Type 63 to your collection. 

In order to help you get the most kills with the Type 63, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

Best Type 63 loadout

The Type 63 is one of the most lethal weapons in the entire game.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Type 63 in Black Ops Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex 
  • Spetsnaz Compensator 
  • 18.3” Strike Team
  • KGB Target Designator 
  • Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip
  • 30 RND
  • Gru Elastic Wrap
  • KGB Pad

While you can still make a decent Type 63 loadout without the extra three attachment slots given by the Gunfighter wildcard, the extra kit makes this build extremely comfy. First up is the Millstop Reflex. This is one of the only optics available that doesn’t clutter the screen or provide a great deal of magnification. 

While the 2.0x and 4.0x optics may give you greater precision on the game’s larger maps and modes, the vast majority favor close-quarter engagements. This is also why the 18.3” Strike Team barrel has been chosen. This handy attachment increases your fire rate by 11%, allowing you to get out more shots onto the target. 

It also increases your damage by 9%. While this may seem like an incremental increase, it does make a noticeable difference when combined with a higher rate of fire. To alleviate the Type 63’s horizontal/vertical recoil, we’ve attached both the Spetsnaz Compensator and Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip.

The Type 63 may not be the most popular gun, but its high DPS makes it a worthy pick.

These attachments make the Type 63 incredibly accurate across all ranges, allowing you to beam opponents with laser-like precision. The bullets will always form in a tight circle around your target, so there’s no need to wrestle with any recoil. Simply point and shoot. 

As you may know by now, visibility in Black Ops Cold War can be rather poor. Even if you follow our visibility guide, there will still be times where you get caught out by pesky head glitches. Fortunately, the KGB Target Designator adds 60% Reveal Distance when aiming down sights. 

The Gru Elastic Wrap is one of the most important attachments as it increases ADS time (30%), Flinch Resistance (90%), and enables aiming while going prone. Combine this with the Sprint to Fire and additional Aim Walking Movement Speed of the KGB Pad, and you have an incredibly mobile rifle that is capable of blistering fast kill times.
