Cuyler ‘Huke’ Garland had an explosive breakout season in Call of Duty esports, before he was forced out of the scene by new age restrictions for the CWL.

But he didn’t give up. Instead, he moved to Halo, where he not only competed at the highest level, but won too. Becoming a world champion, he knew it was his ultimate goal to return to Call of Duty as soon as he turned 18.

Joining up with his former teammates SlasheR, Classic and Temp, his first year back didn’t exactly go to plan. But again, he wasn’t about to give up hope. After bouncing around with various teammates and organizations, it looks like the prodigy is finally realizing his potential.

For the inaugural season of the franchised Call of Duty League, Huke was recruited alongside Clayster, Crimsix, iLLeY and Shotzzy to represent the Dallas Empire.

With two other young guns around him, and two veteran leaders, it was the perfect combination for the squad, who even added CoD legend Rambo to their ranks as coach.

Despite a shaky start to the year, the Empire have quickly found their footing, and are now considered one of the top two teams in the game.

The 2020 Playoffs (replacing the World Championship) is now fast approaching, where Huke will hope to finally realize his dream.

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.
