Former eU Cadet TurnUp2ez clutches insane 1v4 vs 100 Thieves roster

100 Thieves found themselves in with a 4 man advantage in the final round of an SnD match, but fell to a ridiculous 1v4 from former eUnited cadet Joe ‘TurnUp2ez’ Sicre.

It is possibly the best SnD clutch we have seen so far in the early stages of Black Ops 4 involving a professional team, following 100 Thieves’ own SlasheR’s 1v4 vs the rumored G2 roster.

During a $2,500 5v5 tournament, 100 Thieves came up against a team of top SnD players in round 5 and had already lost the first map in the best of three, before taking the next to a round 11.

TurnUp2eZ, now a free agent heading into the Black Ops 4 season, previously signed to the eUnited Cadets roster in November 2017, alongside other upcoming players Chris ‘Simp’ Lehr, Inder ‘iLLeY’ Dhaliwal and ‘Cellium’.

Now 18, TurnUp2ez is eligible to play on a professional roster, and so has split off from the Cadet’s in hopes of being recruited by a full time 5v5 roster for the upcoming season.

And he will certainly have turned a few heads with this incredible 1v4 clutch. Stuck in top control on Summit with only a Sniper and Pistol, he takes out three, one with a slick quickscope, before finding the final kill to take the map 6-5.

Watching the play from 100 Thieves’ perspective, via Sam ‘Octane’ Larew’s stream, you can see how quickly TurnUp2ez took out the team in top control, before they could even realize what had happened.

The sniper shot on to Maurice ‘Fero’ Henriquez left Octane in the 1v1, pistol vs pistol, which TurnUp2ez played well, coming up behind him on the bomb and giving the former OpTic and Luminosity player no chance.

TurnUp2ez has not been announced as part of an official roster yet, but with over a month until the first event of the season, there is plenty of time for a squad to see his potential and pick him up. 

Other members of the eU Cadets are also expected to have offers waiting when they turn 18, with ‘Simp’ next up, turning 18 in February 2019.

“Broken” reticles you should avoid using in Black Ops Cold War

Since the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, players have been grinding to unlock their favorite weapons, skins, and customization options. Unlocking the best reticles for each gun is important, and a video by YouTuber ‘JGOD’ has exposed some huge issues with the game’s current reticle choices.

Since the game’s release on November 13, Black Ops Cold War players have been furiously grinding to unlock additional weapons and customization options in both Multiplayer and Zombies.

Some of the most important items for players to unlock are the various gun reticles across the two main game modes. Players want to make sure they are using the best reticle to help them stay on-target during the action.

In a video posted to his YouTube channel, content creator ‘JGOD’ has criticized the current offering of reticles in Cold War, along with confirming which are the best options with what’s available.

Reticles are just one of the many customization options available to players in Cold War.

Broken reticles in Cold War

In the video, JGOD takes a deep dive into the issues with the reticles available in Multiplayer and Zombies. He breaks down exactly what is wrong with each of the reticles for the 1.25x and 1.37x scopes, which are some of the most popular options in Cold War.

JGOD starts off on Cartel with some basic red dot/triangle options for each scope, showing how they can be seen easily when looking at textures like walls. However, as soon as he moves his reticle up into the air, the red crosshairs completely disappear.

“Where did that red reticle go?” he asks while looking around. The YouTuber continues by showing how some reticles – even yellow and green options – are invisible when looking at other textures around the map. He seems shocked, saying: “I’ve never, ever, ever, ever had this issue in any other Call of Duty.”

The video continues with a breakdown of each reticle’s in-game appearance compared to their image in Cold War’s loadout menu. JGOD shows that almost every red, yellow, or green reticle is affected by different visual issues, and players should avoid those options until the problems are addressed.

Best reticle options for Black Ops Cold War

With all the issues JGOD pointed out in his video, players might be wondering what reticles are still worth using. Luckily, there are still a few good options available.

Similar to Modern Warfare, the blue reticle options appear to be the best choice for Cold War players at the moment. JGOD confirms that, saying: “When it comes to the reticles . . . you wanna pretty much go with the blue ones.” He winds down his video by saying he is “just bringing awareness to this type of issue, so that if the devs were unaware of how broken this is, they can get on it.”

While Treyarch has confirmed they are working on other reticles issues – like certain reticles appearing upside down – they have not addressed the concerns surrounding reticle visibility at the time of writing.
