eUnited have made a change to the Call of Duty professional roster, promoting substitute Chris ‘Simp’ Lehr to the starting lineup for the CWL Pro League. 

The roster move was announced on March 19 via a tweet from eUnited: “Coming off an impressive Open Bracket Finals win, we are proud to announce that Simp will be in the starting lineup during next week’s Pro League matches.”

In order to make room from Simp in the starting squad, eUntied have decided to demote Jordan ‘JKap’ Kaplan to the substitute’s role for the time being. 

The wording used the tweet seems to suggest that this could be trial phase for Simp in the starting lineup for the upcoming week of matches, so we may see this change reversed if things don’t go according to plan.

However, if things do end up working out, then Simp will likely remain in the starting lineup beyond next week, and JKap may be forced to either suffice with being a substitute or find a new team in the Pro League. 

This roster move comes after Simp put in a steller performance in helping FaZe Clan Black dominate the Open Bracket Tournament at CWL Fort Worth.

The squad dropped only four maps the entire competition, although they had to reverse sweep Mindfreak in the Grand Final to secure the first place prize.

eUnited, however, could not have had a worse tournament, as they ended up placing last after finishing fourth in Pool D and getting knocked out by 100 Thieves in the first round of the Losers Bracket. 

SCUF GamingSimp and his FaZe Clan Black team finished first in the Open Bracket Tournament at CWL Fort Worth.

Shortly after this roster move was officially announced, JKap tweeted out his side of the story and claimed innocence from the controversial claims that were made against him.

“All I want to address right now is the fact that “CoDBurner” has the whole community believing that I brainwashed three adult men,” he wrote. “It’s completely laughable, but everyone believes it because this community is all hive mindset.”

He is, of course, referring to the mysterious insider known as the CoDBurner claiming that he had tried his best to get teammate James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks dropped from the team well before CWL Fort Worth, but that his attempt had pretty much backfired.

Controversy aside, eUnited will look to keep their head in the game if they want to bounce back from their tough showing at CWL Fort Worth.

The CWL Pro League has entered its cross-divisional stage, and eU, who currently sit second in Division B with a 5-2 record, are scheduled to play Evil Geniuses, UYU, and Red Reserve in the upcoming week.

Best Krig 6 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Krig 6 has slowly been creeping into the meta spotlight after the recent FFAR and M16 nerfs, so find out which attachments you should equip to increase this gun’s lethality. 

This deadly assault rifle delivers excellent precision and deals great damage across all ranges, making it one the most viable assault rifles in the current meta. This full-auto AR boasts excellent weapon control and quick reloads, while its methodical fire rate helps minimize recoil and keeps your shots accurate. 

It may not deal as much damage as the game’s AK-74, but its excellent accuracy more than makes up for that. The Krig 6’s minimal recoil also allows it to excel across Black Op’s Cold War’s larger-scale maps and modes. Whether it will be a meta defining gun when it’s added to Warzone remains to be seen, but it’s more than likely that this gun will likely prove to be a popular pick. 

In order to help you get the most out of the Krig 6, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

Best Krig 6 loadout

KRIG 6
Activision / Treyarch
The Krig 6 barely has any recoil when kitted out with these attachments.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Krig 6 in Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex
  • Infantry Compensator 
  • 19.7” Ranger
  • SOF Target Designator
  • Foregrip
  • 40 RND
  • Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Raider Stock 

By picking the Gunfighter wildcard, you can equip a total of eight attachments which gives you a great deal of flexibility when it comes to building the perfect loadout. The Millstop Reflex provides the Krig 6 with a clean sight that doesn’t clutter the screen, allowing you to easily spot enemies at a distance. 

Combine this with the 60% reveal distance from the SOF Target Designator and you’ll be able to snap onto the most well-hidden foes. After all, visibility remains a big problem in Black Ops Cold War, so having any attachments that help improve this is huge. 

Next up is the Infantry Compensator and Foregrip which diminish horizontal recoil by 27%, which makes the Krig 6 incredibly accurate. In fact, the recoil on this setup is so minimal that it effectively allows you to beam opponents across all distances. 

Bullet Velocity is also incredibly important in Black Ops Cold War and it is often the reason why the hit detection of certain weapons can feel a little off. After all, being able to quickly drop your foe before they can even react is always going to be beneficial, so the 19.7” Ranger is a must.

The Krig 6 is steadily climbing up the popularity rankings.

Another top pick is the Airborne Elastic Wrap. This incredible attachment increases the Krig 6’s aim down sight time, gives you 90% Flinch Resistance, and allows you to aim while going prone. ADS speed is just as important in Black Ops Cold War as it was in Modern Warfare, particularly for any AR loadouts that want to be competitive against the game’s SMGs. 

Meanwhile, the added 90% Flinch Resistance also keeps your shots accurate even when you take damage. This will often enable you to counter your attackers with high precision shots. The Raider Stock also increases the AR’s Sprint to Fire time and Aim Walking Speed, giving you a great reactionary playstyle that can quickly melt foes in close-quarter firefights. 

While the 50 RND mag attachment offers a great deal of firepower, its reduction in ADS time makes it less optimal for standard multiplayer. As a result, the 40 RND variant has been used instead. The Krig 6 is capable of melting through multiple foes in a few bullets, so the 40 RND mag is more than enough.
