The first roster change of world famous esports organization FaZe Clan has been announced, as the Call of Duty World League makes its transition into a franchise-based competition. 

FaZe Clan experienced mixed fortunes over the course of Black Ops 4, with a third-place finish at the CWL Pro League Playoffs being the highlight. As one of the world’s largest esports organizations, there is a good chance that they will acquire a spot in the franchise league. 

On August 22, FaZe pro Matthew ‘Skrapz’ Marshall stated that he was told there’s an “80% chance” that FaZe will acquire a spot. However, if they do, they will be doing so with a different roster to the one that finished Black Ops 4. 

FaZe ClanFaZe Clan’s Black Ops 4 roster won’t be sticking together for Modern Warfare.

Trei ‘Zer0’ Morris appears to have confirmed his departure from FaZe Clan in a tweet on September 1. 

“I’m currently exploring new opportunities for the upcoming CDL season,” the British CoD star said. “If you would like to reach out to me, you can DM me or email me.” 

The aforementioned Skrapz responded to the tweet, wishing his ex-teammate luck for the future. Zer0 only joined FaZe Clan back in April of 2019, hoping to turn his Black Ops 4 fortunes around. It doesn’t seem to have paid off, and he’ll be searching for a new roster as we build up to Modern Warfare. 

While Zer0 is the only confirmed player to have left the FaZe roster, speculation is also building around Thomas ‘ZooMaa’ Paparatto’s future at the organization. 

While nothing has been announced, the Italian pro tweeted on August 30 that he is excited to find out what city he is going to represent. Eagle-eyed twitter users have also noticed that he has added his email to his Twitter bio, perhaps indicating that he is fielding offers.

However, his social channels are still dominated by FaZe Clan regalia and his bio still reads “Captain of FaZe Clan”, so this remains strictly speculative for now. 

While Zer0 is confirmed to have departed, Skrapz certainly appears to be staying put. Teammates Cellium and Asim have been all but silent about their future heading into the 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
