There have been a string of proposals at major esports events across the globe as of late – but one surprise proposal at CWL London didn’t wrap up in a happy ending.

During the CWL London Grand Finals, a fan approached esports host and presenter Lottie Van-Praag with what looked to be a plastic ring from a gallon of milk, getting down on one knee to “shoot his shot.”

However, his romantic strategy didn’t go according to plan, as Lottie can be seen rejecting the fan with a sympathetic touch to his arm.

Lottie herself addressed the matter in a humorous Tweet shortly after the proposal video made the rounds on social media, simply writing, “I’m sorry, Joe.”

Lottie Van-Praag, InstagramLottie is a popular esports host and desk analyst, and was the surprise target of an affectionate fan during CWL London.

May is the month for esports proposals

This is far from the latest proposal at an esports event, by far; in fact, a fan in Sydney, Australia proposed to his longtime girlfriend during ESL’s CS:GO IEM Sydney on May 4 – just a day prior to Lottie’s unfortunate rejection.

    Professional PUBG player Mert ‘ABeautifulDeath’ Ozturk popped the question on the main stage following the Cup’s Group A matches on May 2, using his post-match interview as the perfect opportunity to shock the world with his romantic gesture.

    Even the production crew got in on his plan, covering the surrounding monitors with hearts as he got down on one knee while the host brought out balloons after Ozturk’s now-fiance said yes.

    A tear-jerking Twitch proposal

    Livestreamed proposals are becoming more and more common as time goes on, with popular Twitch streamer ‘Edisonparklive’ also proposing to his girlfriend during an April broadcast, after breaking the record for most hours streamed during a 30-day period.

    Park’s proposal was made even more sentimental due to his use of a Rubik’s cube to house the ring, which he had given to his fiance at the start of their relationship with missing colors as a means to symbolize how much more they had to learn about each other.

    At the time of the proposal, Park had filled in the cube’s colors, showing that they had learned a lot about each other within their three years of dating.

    As for Joe, it doesn’t look like things panned out so successfully.

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
