In a recent episode of his Eavesdrop podcast, NRG Esports co-CEO Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez has revealed which city he originally wanted to represent in the upcoming Call of Duty franchised league.
The Eavesdrop podcast brings in some of the biggest names in esports to discuss their careers, their paths to success, and any of the industry events occurring at the time.
It’s often a place where these personalities can speak more plainly about things that have happened, squash rumors or, sometimes, allow them to spread previously unknown news, and that’s exactly what happened H3CZ hosted Dexerto on the Eavesdrop.
H3CZ joined NRG and formed the Chicago Huntsmen in October 2019.
While discussing the upcoming franchised Call of Duty League, H3CZ is questioned on whether he has seen more fanfare from Chicago – the city he and his team will be representing – than in other parts of the world.
The former OpTic Gaming mastermind said that it’s not been strictly limited to Chicago, but North America has been his biggest export for merchandise and ticket sales, followed by England, France, and Australia.
He then revealed that Chicago wasn’t the city he was originally gunning for, saying: “Chicago was my second option. My first option was Las Vegas but that wasn’t available to be picked up, I don’t know why.”

This could come as a shock to some OpTic fans, who have known H3CZ for much of his gaming career as the CEO of OpTic Gaming. The organization was born out of, and became successful on the back of its Chicago roots, with each iteration of the OpTic house located in and around the city.
Why Vegas wasn’t an eligible spot raises some questions, but it seems like it could have been written in the stars for the Chicago spot to go to Hector given his history in the Windy City. For what it’s worth, they already look to be one of the most popular teams in the Call of Duty League.
The Krig 6 has slowly been creeping into the meta spotlight after the recent FFAR and M16 nerfs, so find out which attachments you should equip to increase this gun’s lethality.
This deadly assault rifle delivers excellent precision and deals great damage across all ranges, making it one the most viable assault rifles in the current meta. This full-auto AR boasts excellent weapon control and quick reloads, while its methodical fire rate helps minimize recoil and keeps your shots accurate.
It may not deal as much damage as the game’s AK-74, but its excellent accuracy more than makes up for that. The Krig 6’s minimal recoil also allows it to excel across Black Op’s Cold War’s larger-scale maps and modes. Whether it will be a meta defining gun when it’s added to Warzone remains to be seen, but it’s more than likely that this gun will likely prove to be a popular pick.
In order to help you get the most out of the Krig 6, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.
Best Krig 6 loadout
The Krig 6 barely has any recoil when kitted out with these attachments.
Here are the best attachments you can use on your Krig 6 in Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:
SOF Target Designator
Airborne Elastic Wrap
By picking the Gunfighter wildcard, you can equip a total of eight attachments which gives you a great deal of flexibility when it comes to building the perfect loadout. The Millstop Reflex provides the Krig 6 with a clean sight that doesn’t clutter the screen, allowing you to easily spot enemies at a distance.
Next up is the Infantry Compensator and Foregrip which diminish horizontal recoil by 27%, which makes the Krig 6 incredibly accurate. In fact, the recoil on this setup is so minimal that it effectively allows you to beam opponents across all distances.
Bullet Velocity is also incredibly important in Black Ops Cold War and it is often the reason why the hit detection of certain weapons can feel a little off. After all, being able to quickly drop your foe before they can even react is always going to be beneficial, so the 19.7” Ranger is a must.
The Krig 6 is steadily climbing up the popularity rankings.
Another top pick is the Airborne Elastic Wrap. This incredible attachment increases the Krig 6’s aim down sight time, gives you 90% Flinch Resistance, and allows you to aim while going prone. ADS speed is just as important in Black Ops Cold War as it was in Modern Warfare, particularly for any AR loadouts that want to be competitive against the game’s SMGs.
Meanwhile, the added 90% Flinch Resistance also keeps your shots accurate even when you take damage. This will often enable you to counter your attackers with high precision shots. The Raider Stock also increases the AR’s Sprint to Fire time and Aim Walking Speed, giving you a great reactionary playstyle that can quickly melt foes in close-quarter firefights.
While the 50 RND mag attachment offers a great deal of firepower, its reduction in ADS time makes it less optimal for standard multiplayer. As a result, the 40 RND variant has been used instead. The Krig 6 is capable of melting through multiple foes in a few bullets, so the 40 RND mag is more than enough.
