Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is the worst game for the Search and Destroy game mode in years.

After 100 Thieves’ first major win at CWL London, head coach James ‘Crowder‘ Crowder started his own podcast to discuss his and other pro players opinions on the current events in Call of Duty.

FaZe Clan professional player, ZooMaa, was among the few selected for this inaugural episode of Crowder Hours. As the discussion shifted to the state of the game itself, the FaZe player shared why he believes that Black Ops 4 is one of the “worst” Call of Duty games for Search and Destroy specifically.

Crowder initially explained how crucial it was to be good at SnD during a tournament, “Obviously we weren’t the best search team at the tournament, but I think that’s super important to the team” before detailing how hard it was to win a tournament off respawn game modes alone.

ZooMaa then added why he feels SnD in this game has been so different to past titles by saying, “I think this is the worst game in terms of SnD that we’ve had over the past five years.”

Much to everyone’s surprise, he then explained that it was the new stim shot feature he had a problem with during SnD because of the players ability to quickly heal after taking damage, “I think this game in SnD is just so hard to make plays.”

Topic starts at 1:26:05 for mobile users

After NAMELESS and Crowder agreed with ZooMaa’s assessment of the game mode, Maven then replied, “Yeah you’ve taken out every gun in the game you can make plays with” before jokingly imitating the pro players and their excessive gentlemen’s agreements list, “Let’s get rid of the Mozu.”

They then went on to discuss if more plays would be made in SnD if some of the current GA’d weapons, such as the Swordfish, made a return to competitive play.

As players return to the next stage of the CWL Pro League, many are wondering if the stim shot will be next in line for Treyarch to update, hoping that it may result in more exciting gameplay.

How to view your Black Ops Cold War stats on PC, PS5 & Xbox

Call of Duty is enjoyed by some of the most competitive gamers around and, of course, competitors want to analyze their performances. Fortunately, there are multiple ways to view your Black Ops Cold War stats, no matter your system of choice.

If you played Modern Warfare or Warzone, then chances are that you’re already somewhat familiar with checking your CoD statistics. Aside from the in-game client, using the website COD Tracker was a very popular way to check, and compare, your numbers when away from your console or PC.

That remains an option for Black Ops Cold War in 2020 and beyond, but players can also check their stats in-game and on the official Call of Duty app. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages, but they all help you paint a clearer picture of your performance.

Whether you simply want to track your progress as a player or compare yourself to the game’s best, we’ve broken the two ways, outside of the in-game client, that you can check your Black Ops Cold War statistics.

COD Tracker

COD Tracker gives you an overview of your stats with the options to dive deeper.

COD Tracker’s offering is likely the most thorough option around, as you are able to track a ton of statistics, filter by mode, map, and weapon while comparing yourself to global leaderboards. 

Like Warzone, you can even go back through many of your recent matches to analyze individual performances.

  1. Head to COD Tracker and enter either your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  2. Navigate to the Black Ops Cold War tag
  3. Check out how you stack up against the competition

The CoD Companion App is a nice alternative for people looking to check numbers on their phone.

The Call of Duty Companion app is a very easy way to access many of your statistics without turning on your PC or console. While it doesn’t have as much data as COD Tracker might give you (and rounds K/D a decimal sooner than Tracker), the UI is very intuitive, with pie charts and line graphs for your numbers and whatnot.

  1. Search “Call of Duty Companion” on your device’s app store or through their website
  2. Download and open
  3. Sign in with your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  4. Navigate to “Player,” then scroll to “Black Ops Cold War” instead of “Modern Warfare” from the drop-down menu

While BOCW’s in-game client may feel somewhat limited in its options for analyzing your performance and place on the leaderboards, these two options each provide a ton of information.

Both provide similar degrees of data with the principal differences coming in their presentation, so it’s really up to you which you prefer to use.
