This simple Warzone trick allows Call of Duty players to make the most out of the popular Cluster Strike killstreak, with near-perfect accuracy on every use.

It can be quite challenging to pick up wins in Warzone compared to other battle royale titles, with up to 150 players gunning for the top spot in every match.

Players will often look towards the different Buy Stations scattered around Verdansk to give themselves an edge over their opponents with options such as custom loadouts and killstreaks on offer.

Buy Stations in Warzone allow players to pick up killstreaks such as UAVs, Cluster strikes, and more.

One of the killstreaks that many players opt for when looking to rack up wins is the Cluster Strike, which only costs $3,000 and can be devastating to enemy players when used correctly.

Due to the nature of the killstreak, players need to mark their opponents using a targeting laser which becomes more difficult to aim at a distance.

However, Warzone player u/LeagueofSOAD has shared a quick “pro tip” that can guarantee accurate bombing strikes even during long-range gunfights.

Instead of lining up the Cluster Strike with the targeting laser, players can simply use the scope or sight of their primary weapon to ADS on their opponent and, without moving the camera, switch to the killstreak again to trigger the bombing run on that exact location.

Although it is fairly simple to execute, the fan received a lot of support on their post from many Warzone players who were unaware of this clever tactic.

Accurate cluster strikes can do a lot for players in Warzone when used tactically, such as wiping out opponents who are in power positions like rooftops in late-game fights.

The only potential downside to this trick is that it can take a little bit longer than usual to trigger the killstreak, potentially endangering you if you’re caught standing still out in the open.

OpTic Envoy’s AK74u Black Ops Cold War loadout ahead of CDL launch

The competitive Call of Duty season is almost upon us, with the CDL launching on January 23, and Envoy’s AK74u could prove one of the most important in getting OpTic Chicago some all-important championship wins.

The AK74u is the go-to SMG for all competitive Black Ops Cold War players. While the MP5 was the main one when the game first dropped, a subsequent nerf saw the 74u take top spot and maintain it ever since.

While Envoy’s original loadout back in November was impressive, this one is a complete change-up, and seems to be the meta build for most top pros who run it.

Taking to Nuketown ‘84 for a 1v1 against teammate FormaL, both were using the AK74u — and it absolutely shreds.

The AK74u is the best-in-class SMG.

As mentioned, this looks to be the meta build for most pros, but Envoy is by far one of the most impressive SMG players in the Call of Duty League, so it definitely looks great in his hands.

Here’s the attachments Envoy uses on the gun:

  • Muzzle: Muzzle Brake 5.45
  • Barrel: 9.3” Extended
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Speedgrip
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
  • Handle: GRU Elastic Wrap

If you’re looking to maximize your abilities with an SMG in hand, Envoy is one of the best people to look at, and with the launch of League Play in BOCW seemingly imminent, now’s the perfect time to get used to this build.

This may look slightly different from what you see in public matches, with certain attachments banned or not viable in a competitive space, so it’s well worth familiarizing yourself with.

Whether or not this remains the meta throughout the year isn’t yet known; we expect a number of weapon balancing changes throughout the year, but how this affects the 74u isn’t clear.
