FaZe Clan pro player and 2015 Call of Duty World Champion Dillon ‘Attach’ Price and current World Champion Bryan ‘Apathy’ Zhelyazkov have given Back Ops 4 fans some tips on how to get better at the game.

Both professionals wanted to focus on player’s aim, and the small changes and adjustments they could make that could see them go from losing gunfights to winning them.

The first thing the FaZe Clan member suggested was finding a controller that you feel comfortable using, and then figuring out how you like to hold it, whether that is normally or using the claw method. Attach also suggests diving into the settings in Black Ops 4 and trying out different button layouts, and controller sensitivities until you find one that suits you.

Apathy said that a basic but massive factor to improve your aim is centering, which is making sure that the crosshairs in the middle of your screen are always looking towards where you want to go, or where you think enemies might be.

“It means you’re always ready,” stated Apathy. “It allows you to snap in right away on your enemy. It’s really effective, it really works.”

However, Attach feels that the biggest advantage you can give yourself over opponents is positioning. “If you’re on a headglitch, it’s harder for their bullets to hit me, and easier for mine to hit them because I am behind something, and they are not. It’s better to have the worst aim and be in a better position, than have the best aim and be in a worse spot.”

Of course, all of these techniques need to be practiced, and both Attach and Apathy state that the best way to do that is by shooting bots, and playing as many games as possible.

A new game-breaking bug is making the rounds in Call of Duty: Warzone, allowing players to abuse unlimited Stim Shots and survive permanently in the gas for easy, unfair wins on Verdansk. Fortunately, Infinity Ward have confirmed they’re fixing it.

Imagine surviving until the very end of a battle royale, evading toxic gas and dangerous opponents to stand alone in the final circle as the last remaining team and presumptive victors. Then you look at the top of your screen and realize there’s another team still alive, possibly more, but you can’t see them in the circle.

That’s been the experience for many of Warzone’s players over the past couple days, as a new glitch is allowing exploitative players to survive in the green fog of the game’s gas for as long as they want with an unlimited supply of Stim Shots. Teams that respect the rules are losing out to sly gas goblins.

On the plus side, this shouldn’t remain an issue for too much longer, as the developers have confirmed they are aware of the glitch and working on a solution.

Much of the Call of Duty fanbase is thrilled that the fixes for the glitched AS VAL SSP 10-R mags and SP-R .300 Norma and .338 Lapua mags were finally deployed on October 8. The two weapons were broken and unbearable for players given the former’s ability to kill through multiple walls and the latter’s capacity to remain hitscan within 450 meters of range.

But, while those nerfs came through within just around a week of Modern Warfare and Warzone’s Season 6 update, the community may not be comfortable waiting as long for a fix to the unlimited Stim Shot glitch. 

At the moment, popular streamers and competitive players seem to have joined the masses in expressing serious frustration with the glitch. Among others, Call of Duty League caster Clint ‘Maven’ Evans has criticized the bug for numerous dissatisfying losses.

While not wanting to spread exactly how the glitch is performed and widen its presence, it is not particularly difficult to achieve and simply requires three items: a frag, a stim, and a self-revive kit. As such, it presents one of the game’s more notorious bugs and should be a major priority for a quick patch.

At the moment, Infinity Ward have confirmed a fix is in the works and that it remains “in progress” according to the team’s Trello board. As always, we will update as soon as things change, but, for now, remember to keep an eye on the gas when you deploy in Verdansk.
