OpTic CEO Hector ‘Call of Duty and revealed what it took to get the 3-time Champion back to the Greenwall. 

Though Karma touched on how previous letdowns in his pro career made him feel like he “needed a break,” a major concern lied in teammate Seth ‘Scump’ Abner’s distance from the team at the time.

“I eventually came back and was like ‘Listen, I will not play if Seth still lives where he does, like I won’t,’” Karma said.

MLGThough the OpTic lineup didn’t have the results the were looking for at Fort Worth, they’ve been impressive thus far in the year.

It seems like Karma knew how ambitious the lineup was, and needed some form of assurance that the star-studded roster would be able to practice and perform at the level they could on paper.

“Unless you guarantee [that Scump would live closer], then I’m not joining,” Karma recalled. “… And I still wasn’t 100%, but that’s like the first thing that has to happen. He’s playing on one bar [of Internet connection] everyday like I’m not playing.”

H3CZ did eventually guarantee it, but the process to get Scump down to Texas wasn’t as straightforward as the CEO might have hoped for.

“Bro, you don’t even know how tough it was to get him the fuck away from California,” H3CZ said. “[Scump] was willing to move, but it was all these external factors that was fucking keeping him there to the very last moment.”

It got so bad that Scump suggested if he could just play out of California, but that didn’t work for the CEO, saying: “Seth, if you’re not on a fucking plane tonight, I’ve made promises that I’m going to keep. Just fucking know that.”

Karma recalled putting in his two cents to motivate Scump to fly out with the team as he recalled saying: “Listen [Scump], if you don’t move, I’m not joining [OpTic]. I’m doing something else.”

Even though it all worked out in the end, the lead up to getting Karma on the team had an incredible amount of external factors weighing on the process that eventually formed one of the deepest rosters in the Call of Duty scene.

NICKMERCS creates deadly RAM-7 Warzone loadout for all ranges

Twitch and YouTube star Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff has shown off his pretty interesting Ram-7 loadout for Warzone as players have started experimenting with different weapons. 

Ever since Warzone released, players have constantly fiddled around with their loadouts to try and get something that works for their playstyle but also keeps up with the ever-changing meta. 

With the switch to Black Ops Cold War, the meta has somewhat shifted away from the original weapons in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, but some players have been going back to them – especially in terms of the assault rifles. 

We’ve seen new classes for the M4, the Kilo 141, as well as Amax CR-56, but now NICKMERCS has been trying out the Ram-7 again, and he’s got a pretty spicy class.

The RAM-7 can be tough to control without the right attachments.

As Nick notes, the Ram-7 was, at one point, the strongest assault rifle in Warzone but updates saw it displaced by others. Yet, it’s still pretty nice in terms of the damage it deals and not being incredibly slow to carry. 

“It’s a very, very strong assault rifle, but it’s kind of hard to control the recoil at distance,” Nick said. “I’ll be honest man, I had never used the Ram-7 ironsight in Warzone… this things slaps.”

With his setup, Nick has boosted the accuracy, range, and control somewhat, but the mobility does take a hit.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: FSS Ranger
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammo: 50-round mags
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

Now, whether or not the weapon will displace some others and cement its place in the meta is anyone guess. However, it’s still not as quick as weapons like the FFAR and Mac-10, so it might take another round of nerfs and buffs to really get the Ram-7 up there. 

Yet, Nick’s setup is a pretty nice close to mid-range setup, and worth messing around with if you’re looking for something new.
