FaZe Clan’s Doug ‘Censor’ Martin has provided another update on his future in competitive Call of Duty, as Activision’s title transitions to a franchise-based league. 

It is no secret that CoD’s move to a franchise-based league will bring big changes to the competitive scene. We will no longer see household esports names like OpTic Gaming or FaZe Clan, as city-based rosters like Los Angeles and Toronto replace them

While much remains unclear about the future of Call of Duty esports, Censor has been unequivocal when stating that he wants to be a big part of the competitive scene. On August 22, he provided fans with another update about his future in the popular FPS title.

“I just want to give you an update on the Call of Duty franchise meetings and everything that I’m doing,” explained the FaZe Clan star, who recently went bald. “I’m working really hard, I’m doing a lot guys. I wanna make Call of Duty esports the coolest, biggest most mainstream fun thing on planet Earth.”

He also said that he feels he is currently in “the best headspace” in order to out a career move in Call of Duty esports. “I’ve been working my tail off 24/7, talking to franchises, figuring out what my next move is gonna be.”

Unfortunately, if you’re after specific names of the franchises that Censor is talking to, he doesn’t provide them. “Out of respect for the franchises I feel it’s important – and with transparency to you guys, to the franchises, everyone in general – I think it’s very important that I do not disclose any of the information, until I can give a definitive answer.”

While he did not disclose specific details, the FaZe Clan content creator summarized the meetings as “going great”.

MLGCensor experienced his biggest success as a pro player back in Advanced Warfare.

Censor last played in Call of Duty esports back in WWII, on a compLexity roster that placed 13-16th at Champs. He played alongside Ricky, Blazt and Greenwall star Dashy. 

He did not feature at all in competitive Black Ops 4, but has made clear he wants to be back for Modern Warfare’s competitive season.

While history would suggest Censor sees himself as a player, it certainly sounds like he is weighing up all his options as CoD makes the transformation into a franchise-based league.

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. 

Attachments

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

Secondary

  • 1911

Throwables

  • Stimshot
  • Semtex
  • Field Mic

Perks

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

Wildcard

  • 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
