It hasn’t even been a full day since the Call of Duty Blackout beta went live, but there’s plenty of evidence that the hype is in fact real.
During his livestream of the beta gameplay on Twitch, popular streamer ‘Dr Disrespect’ had a message for Treyarch’s Game Designer Director David Vonderhaar, who is one of the key figures in the development of Blackout.
“Before I jump into this next game, because I love this game, I love it man. I love it Treyarch, I love it,” he said.
Aside from voicing his approval for Blackout, the Doc had a specific message for Vonderhaar.
“Vonderhaar you can DJ all you want. I know you’ve got your turntables hooked up in your prius right now,” he said. “If I were you, I’d take the whole Treyarch staff outside of 3100, bring em out into the parking lot and have a little BBQ and you can press those little MP3 buttons all you want all day. Vonderhaar, I love Blackout.”
Blackout seems to be getting a warm reception from the community so far, with the Doc and a ton of other streamers showing off all the action and raving about the beta on Monday.
If Vonderhaar does decide to throw a Blackout BBQ, we’ll be sure to bring along some of that world-famous Dexerto potato salad.
If you’re always pushing the pace and playing aggressively in Call of Duty, SMGs should be your go-to in Black Ops Cold War and we’ve got an overview of the fastest Milano 821 loadout possible.
While Assault Rifles are there to help you in mid to long-range gunfights, SMGs are always about up-close engagements. You should be trying to blitz your way through the map and towards the next kill.
As a result, you’re going to want to fine-tune your weapon of choice to fit that playstyle. Rather than equipping attachments to improve your aim or your reveal distance, for example, speed should be the top priority.
Thankfully, the Milano 821 is an early unlock in the SMG category and it’s one of the fastest guns in the game. Here’s how you can get the most out of it.
Best Milano 821 loadout for Black Ops Cold War
Reach new speeds with this ridiculous Milano loadout.
Optic: Microflex LED
Muzzle: Infantry Compensator
Barrel: 10.6 Task Force
Body: SWAT 5mw Laser Sight
Underbarrel: SFOD Speedgrip
Magazine: Vandal Speed Loader
Handle: Speed Tape
Stock: Marathon Stock
We recommend picking the Infantry Compensator Muzzle over the Socom Eliminator. While the latter provides even more vertical recoil control, it comes at the expense of movement speed. Your goal is to be as quick as possible, so hindering speed is a big deal-breaker for this loadout.
The 10.6 Task Force Barrel might be the strongest attachment in Cold War. Not only does it boost your overall weapon damage, but also the range of the SMG along with its bullet velocity. There is no better way to bump the lethality of the gun but obviously, it comes with some steep tradeoffs.
You’re giving up on the notion of fine aim in favor of an outright beastly weapon. This thing will shred with the right Barrel, but it won’t be easy to control. So you’re going to want to play from a closer range and always be pushing the pace.
With the 5mw Laser Sight, there isn’t much of a need to actually aim down sights. Your recoil is going to be tough to handle to begin with, so firing from the hip will often be the easier choice.
You’ll be zooming through the map in no time with this setup.
No need to reduce flinch with this particular weapon since you’ll rarely be aiming down sights. Instead, opting for the simple Speed Tape Handle is the way to go. This will give a slight buff to your ADS speed without any downsides.
Make sure you’re running Gung-Ho in the third perk slot as well. This is a complete game-changer for SMG classes as you’ll always be on the move, running and gunning with every fight. This will help keep you ahead of the competition with seamless movement.
