Former OpTic content creator, Ashley “MiDNiTE” Glassel has announced she will be joining Minnesota’s Call of Duty team. 

In a new YouTube video, Glassel revealed that everything just fell into her lap after moving back to Minnesota to be with her family.

MiDNiTE said that shortly after she came back home, the Wilfs, who own the Minnesota Vikings, of which she is a fan, started WISE Ventures Esports and their first investment is this Call of Duty team.

“As soon as I heard about the Call of Duty team investment here in Minnesota, I was instantly obviously interested,” she explained. “My two favorite things: Call of Duty, Minnesota Vikings… esports, it just makes sense.”

Ashley, who spent ten years with OpTic stated that her first few meetings with Minnesota Call of Duty went well and they explained their mission statement to her.

“Going forward I will be working very closely with the Minnesota Call of Duty team,” she said. “I can’t say the team name. I can’t say too much other information that has not been announced yet, but I am ecstatic to begin working with them.”

“I’m going to start off in a bit of a consulting role. I think there’s a lot of areas I can help in and there’s a lot of areas they need help in right now,” the gamer proudly announced. 


“They’re new to the space. They’re new to Call of Duty… they maybe don’t have the same advantage of another team who has already been in Call of Duty and they just bought a league spot so it’s an easy transition. They’re new, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re not going to be impactful right away. I think that’s why they wanted to work with me and why I want to work with them.” 

The long-time content creator then went into detail about what she’d be doing with the team. “I think I can help them in a multitude of areas. Whether it’s helping with the players at first, whether it’s building this super awesome HQ that we’re going to have eventually, content obviously my strong point… social media, these are all things I’m experienced in within the Call of Duty esports realm.” 

Glassel joined OpTic 10 years ago and was the first female content creator to be part of the Green Wall. Her popular YouTube channel has amassed nearly 650K subscribers.

The Minnesota Call of Duty franchise will start competing in the new league in 2020.

Black Ops Cold War is certainly no stranger to burst fire weapons, particularly those of the assault rifle kind. However, there is also one SMG that shares this firing pattern. Here are all the attachments you should be using to unleash the KSP 45’s full potential.

The KSP 45 may not be your go-to SMG in Black Ops Cold War, especially when the likes of the MP5 and Milano dominate the category. However, despite being a three-round burst weapon, the KSP 45 offers great damage and decent range. Only one burst is needed to drop an enemy in close-quarters engagements, while two are needed at mid-range. 

This deadly gun blends both AR and SMG playstyle together, making it a great choice for those that want to remain competitive across all distances. In order to help you get the most out of the KSP 45 in Treyarch’s latest title, we’ve created a loadout that will help you secure more frags in no time. 

Best KSP 45 loadout in Black Ops Cold War

This loadout balances the KSP 45’s range and close-quarter effectiveness.

Here’s how you need to kit out your KS5 45 SMG to dish out the most damage across all ranges. 


  • Barrel: 10.5 Reinforced Heavy 
  • Body: SWAT 5MW Laser Sight
  • Underbarrel: Front Grip
  • Magazine: 42 RND
  • Stock: Tactical Stock


  • 1911


  • Stimshot
  • Semtex
  • Field Mic


  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket + Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Assassin + Scavenger 
  • Perk 3: Ninja + Ghost


  • Perk Greed

Whether you prefer to seek out close-quarter firefights or take down foes in mid-range engagements with deadly precision, then this KSP 45 loadout will enable you to do just that. The 10.5 Reinforced Heavy increases the SMG’s effectiveness at range and bolsters its bullet velocity. 

Combine this with the horizontal recoil control from the Front Grip and you have an extremely accurate SMG. While the KSP 45 will still struggle to outgun the game’s meta assault rifles, you’ll at least have a fighting chance. After all, being able to take down mid-range targets in just two bursts is hardly anything to scoff at. 

Meanwhile, the SWAT 5MW Laser Sight improves the gun’s hip-fire accuracy. Mobility and ADS speed remains a big part of Black Ops Cold War, especially when you’re playing on maps like Nuketwon ‘84. As a result, being able to accurately kill any targets without ever looking down your gun’s sights is great.

The 42 RND Mags ensure you have plenty of ammo when it comes to snagging those game-winning multi-kills. Lastly, the Tactical Stock increases aim walking movement speed, enabling you to keep on your toes and quickly sweep those corners.

The KSP 45 may not be as dominant as the MP5, but it still packs a punch.

This loadout uses Perk Greed, which allows players to take six perks. The combination of Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask will keep you safe from any explosives and noxious gas. These perks are important for most loadouts, but especially hyper-aggressive ones that prefer the run and gun approach to combat.

Assassin enables you to shut down any enemies that are currently on killstreaks, while Scavenger keeps your ammunition reserves healthy. Lastly, Ghost and Ninja keep you hidden from pesky enemy spy planes and silences your footsteps. 

In terms of equipment, we’ve chosen the standard Stimshot, Semtex, and Field Mic items. Having the healing from Stimshot will keep you fighting, while the Field Mic allows you to pick up on any enemy movements. 

So there you have it, an extremely deadly and versatile KSP 45 loadout. If you want to keep updated with all the latest Call of Duty news and updates, then follow us over on @DexertoIntel
