How does an Overwatch pro fare against CoD stars in Modern Warfare?

Call of Duty and Overwatch combined when two pros from New York-based teams joined forces in Modern Warfare’s 2v2 mode and later face off against one another with a surprising outcome.

The Excelsior’s Jong-ryeol ‘Saebyeolbe’ Park and Subliners’ Lamar ‘Accuracy’ Abedi were put on a server together to run wild against anyone who dared to face off against them.

Amusingly, despite Saebyeolbe asking the Call of Duty pro to “carry him,” Accuracy told the South Korean star that he may be doing a lot of the carrying considering he would be using mouse and keyboard, which baffled the DPS main.

“With a mouse and keyboard you’ll be hitting every shot,” Abdi said.

Robert Paul for Blizzard EntertainmentCould Saebyeolbe be a future Call of Duty star?

“Do you use a console?” the shocked Park asked, unaware that professional Call of Duty players have been on console for a long time and thus use controllers.

As it turned out, Saebyeolbe dominated in 2v2, despite not being able to blink around the map as he’s used to doing as Tracer in OWL.

The two players, who have incredibly different backgrounds, actually made quite a decent team with good call outs and incredibly clutch plays. After a few wins in a row, SBB made a startling statement.

“I like this game,” he admitted. “It’s better than Overwatch.”

“Oooh,” Accuracy laughed. “Shots, shots, shots.”

After the two were finished playing Call of Duty, they hopped on FIFA to play against each other and discovered playing the game on a PC was a bit more difficult than on console.

Despite having the ball and heading towards Accuracy’s goal, the 23-year-old Excelsior star couldn’t figure out how to pass or shoot. A similar predicament seemed to thwart Abdi’s attempt on goal too, as he couldn’t live up to his tag with a horribly wide miss.

After an embarrassing boring 0-0 FIFA game, Saebyeolbe and Accuracy resorted to settling their soccer game with a 1v1 round in Modern Warfare.

For his part, the Overwatch star managed to hold his own and avoid being shutout. While Accuracy had a 4-1 lead at one point, as the match wore on, SBB started finding his groove and stormed back cutting the lead to 6-5 at one point.

In the end, however, Accuracy put the 2x Stage Playoff champion down ending the 1v1 with a final score of 10-6.

With a little more time and practice, it would be interesting to see just how good Saebyeolbe becomes at Call of Duty, especially considering he said he likes the game more than Overwatch.

Best Type 63 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Type 63 is capable of dishing out some incredible damage thanks to its methodical firing pattern and excellent precision. Here are all the attachments you should be using when running and gunning with the Type 63. 

If you’re a fan of Black Ops Cold War’s Tactical Rifle class or a player that prefers a more methodical approach to combat, then the Type 63 is one weapon you’ll want to focus on leveling up. While burst fire weapons like the M16 and AUG continue to dominate the game, there have been a number of players picking up this reliable rifle. 

Despite its slower rate of fire, this tactical rifle is capable of killing an enemy in just two shots (one body shot and one headshot). The Type 63 is a great option for those that want the damage of a sniper, but wish to be more active in their playstyle. If you have a good trigger finger and decent aim, you’ll definitely want to add the Type 63 to your collection. 

In order to help you get the most kills with the Type 63, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

The Type 63 is one of the most lethal weapons in the entire game.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Type 63 in Black Ops Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex 
  • Spetsnaz Compensator 
  • 18.3” Strike Team
  • KGB Target Designator 
  • Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip
  • 30 RND
  • Gru Elastic Wrap
  • KGB Pad

While you can still make a decent Type 63 loadout without the extra three attachment slots given by the Gunfighter wildcard, the extra kit makes this build extremely comfy. First up is the Millstop Reflex. This is one of the only optics available that doesn’t clutter the screen or provide a great deal of magnification. 

While the 2.0x and 4.0x optics may give you greater precision on the game’s larger maps and modes, the vast majority favor close-quarter engagements. This is also why the 18.3” Strike Team barrel has been chosen. This handy attachment increases your fire rate by 11%, allowing you to get out more shots onto the target. 

It also increases your damage by 9%. While this may seem like an incremental increase, it does make a noticeable difference when combined with a higher rate of fire. To alleviate the Type 63’s horizontal/vertical recoil, we’ve attached both the Spetsnaz Compensator and Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip.

The Type 63 may not be the most popular gun, but its high DPS makes it a worthy pick.

These attachments make the Type 63 incredibly accurate across all ranges, allowing you to beam opponents with laser-like precision. The bullets will always form in a tight circle around your target, so there’s no need to wrestle with any recoil. Simply point and shoot. 

As you may know by now, visibility in Black Ops Cold War can be rather poor. Even if you follow our visibility guide, there will still be times where you get caught out by pesky head glitches. Fortunately, the KGB Target Designator adds 60% Reveal Distance when aiming down sights. 

The Gru Elastic Wrap is one of the most important attachments as it increases ADS time (30%), Flinch Resistance (90%), and enables aiming while going prone. Combine this with the Sprint to Fire and additional Aim Walking Movement Speed of the KGB Pad, and you have an incredibly mobile rifle that is capable of blistering fast kill times.
