Two time Call of Duty world champion Jordan ‘JKap’ Kaplan has apologized for his use of homophobic language, after it was caught on a fellow CoD pro’s stream.

JKap has been a hot topic in the CoD community of late, after he was moved to a substitute role for eUnited following their disappointing finish at CWL Fort Worth.

There has also been community discussion over his relationship with eUnited teammate James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks, and how much this impacted the decision to drop him from the starting line-up.

Red BullJKap and Clayster have teamed before Black Ops 4, winning a world championship together in Advanced Warfare.

It was while referring to Clayster that JKap used the homophobic slur, which was picked up on the stream of 100 Thieves player Kenny ‘Kenny’ Williams.

On March 23, JKap issued a public apology via Twitter. JKap explained that he was sorry for using the term and that he let his emotions get the best of him “in the moment”.

Kaplan went on to acknowledge that the use of the term was “unacceptable” and that it “does not reflect my values as a person”. The apology concludes that the behaviour will not be repeated.

I want to apologize for something I said the other day. I let my emotions get the best of me in the moment and used a homophobic slur. This is unacceptable behavior from me and does not reflect my values as a person. I’m sorry for the language I used and it will not happen again.

His apology has received a largely positive response, with fellow Call of Duty pro Renato ‘Saints’ Forza replying “salute bro”, and others generally being forgiving of what happened.

It is clear JKap wants to draw a line under the incident and focus on what’s next in his career, which currently lies in the balance as he sits on the bench of eUnited.

How to view your Black Ops Cold War stats on PC, PS5 & Xbox

Call of Duty is enjoyed by some of the most competitive gamers around and, of course, competitors want to analyze their performances. Fortunately, there are multiple ways to view your Black Ops Cold War stats, no matter your system of choice.

If you played Modern Warfare or Warzone, then chances are that you’re already somewhat familiar with checking your CoD statistics. Aside from the in-game client, using the website COD Tracker was a very popular way to check, and compare, your numbers when away from your console or PC.

That remains an option for Black Ops Cold War in 2020 and beyond, but players can also check their stats in-game and on the official Call of Duty app. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages, but they all help you paint a clearer picture of your performance.

Whether you simply want to track your progress as a player or compare yourself to the game’s best, we’ve broken the two ways, outside of the in-game client, that you can check your Black Ops Cold War statistics.

COD Tracker

COD Tracker gives you an overview of your stats with the options to dive deeper.

COD Tracker’s offering is likely the most thorough option around, as you are able to track a ton of statistics, filter by mode, map, and weapon while comparing yourself to global leaderboards. 

Like Warzone, you can even go back through many of your recent matches to analyze individual performances.

  1. Head to COD Tracker and enter either your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  2. Navigate to the Black Ops Cold War tag
  3. Check out how you stack up against the competition

Call of Duty Companion

The CoD Companion App is a nice alternative for people looking to check numbers on their phone.

The Call of Duty Companion app is a very easy way to access many of your statistics without turning on your PC or console. While it doesn’t have as much data as COD Tracker might give you (and rounds K/D a decimal sooner than Tracker), the UI is very intuitive, with pie charts and line graphs for your numbers and whatnot.

  1. Search “Call of Duty Companion” on your device’s app store or through their website
  2. Download and open
  3. Sign in with your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  4. Navigate to “Player,” then scroll to “Black Ops Cold War” instead of “Modern Warfare” from the drop-down menu

While BOCW’s in-game client may feel somewhat limited in its options for analyzing your performance and place on the leaderboards, these two options each provide a ton of information.

Both provide similar degrees of data with the principal differences coming in their presentation, so it’s really up to you which you prefer to use.
