With the regular season of the CWL Pro League now wrapped up, it’s time to decide which professional Call of Duty team stands above all others at the CWL Finals in Miami, Florida.

CWL Finals is the fifth major Call of Duty tournament to take place in the 2019 season, and it is split into two parts – a $1.25 million Playoffs for the CWL Pro League, and the final $150,000 amateur open bracket tournament of the Black Ops 4 season. 

It’s also the last opportunity for teams to qualify for CWL Championships, with the top 16 teams from the amateur bracket guaranteed a spot at the $2 million tournament. 

Additionally, prior to the start of the Playoffs, the eight Pro League teams that failed to qualify via the regular season will compete in a Play-In, from which two more teams will be added to the postseason pool. 

mlg100 Thieves reigned supreme at CWL Anaheim.

CWL Finals Playoff Bracket

CWLThe CWL Finals Playoff bracket is stacked with some top teams.

The Pro League Playoffs at CWL Finals features 10 teams that competed in this year’s professional circuit – the top four of both Divisions, and two more that qualified via that Play-In tournament. 

OpTic Gaming and eUnited both secured top spot in Division A and B respectively, with FaZe Clan, 100 Thieves, Gen.G, Splyce, Team Reciprocity, and Team Heretics also qualifying directly.

The Playoff bracket itself is of the double-elimination variety, with Reciprocity and Heretics forced to play an extra match against the Play-In winners after finishing the Pro League as the fourth seeds.

CWL Finals Play-In

The Play-In bracket was comprised of the eight teams that finished in the bottom four spots of either Division during the Pro League regular season, meaning that they did not qualify for the Playoffs directly.

Only two Playoff spots were on offer from this stacked bracket, with teams such as Envy and Luminosity Gaming viewed as favorites to clinch those spots. Unlike most tournaments, this bracket was single elimination, meaning there was no room for error.

Once the dust of the tournament settled, the final two teams remaining were Luminosity Gaming and Evil Geniuses, who advanced to join the rest of the pack in the $1.25 million Playoffs.

You can check out a recap of the Play-In HERE

CWLLG and EG were the last two standing from the Play-In tournament.

CWL Finals – Amateur Finals bracket

CWL Finals will also play host to the Amateur Finals – the final amateur open bracket tournament of the season. The competition features a whopping $150,000 prize pool and, more importantly, 16 spots to the upcoming CWL Championship in August.

All of the open bracket action will be livestreamed on a special Twitch channel, which we have included below. You can keep up with the entire bracket itself by clicking the link above.

Best KSP 45 loadout Black Ops Cold War: Attachments, Wildcard, more

Black Ops Cold War is certainly no stranger to burst fire weapons, particularly those of the assault rifle kind. However, there is also one SMG that shares this firing pattern. Here are all the attachments you should be using to unleash the KSP 45’s full potential.

The KSP 45 may not be your go-to SMG in Black Ops Cold War, especially when the likes of the MP5 and Milano dominate the category. However, despite being a three-round burst weapon, the KSP 45 offers great damage and decent range. Only one burst is needed to drop an enemy in close-quarters engagements, while two are needed at mid-range. 

This deadly gun blends both AR and SMG playstyle together, making it a great choice for those that want to remain competitive across all distances. In order to help you get the most out of the KSP 45 in Treyarch’s latest title, we’ve created a loadout that will help you secure more frags in no time. 

Best KSP 45 loadout in Black Ops Cold War

KSP 45
Activision / Treyarch
This loadout balances the KSP 45’s range and close-quarter effectiveness.

Here’s how you need to kit out your KS5 45 SMG to dish out the most damage across all ranges. 

Attachments

  • Barrel: 10.5 Reinforced Heavy 
  • Body: SWAT 5MW Laser Sight
  • Underbarrel: Front Grip
  • Magazine: 42 RND
  • Stock: Tactical Stock

Secondary

  • 1911

Throwables

  • Stimshot
  • Semtex
  • Field Mic

Perks

  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket + Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Assassin + Scavenger 
  • Perk 3: Ninja + Ghost

Wildcard

  • Perk Greed

Whether you prefer to seek out close-quarter firefights or take down foes in mid-range engagements with deadly precision, then this KSP 45 loadout will enable you to do just that. The 10.5 Reinforced Heavy increases the SMG’s effectiveness at range and bolsters its bullet velocity. 

Combine this with the horizontal recoil control from the Front Grip and you have an extremely accurate SMG. While the KSP 45 will still struggle to outgun the game’s meta assault rifles, you’ll at least have a fighting chance. After all, being able to take down mid-range targets in just two bursts is hardly anything to scoff at. 

Meanwhile, the SWAT 5MW Laser Sight improves the gun’s hip-fire accuracy. Mobility and ADS speed remains a big part of Black Ops Cold War, especially when you’re playing on maps like Nuketwon ‘84. As a result, being able to accurately kill any targets without ever looking down your gun’s sights is great.

The 42 RND Mags ensure you have plenty of ammo when it comes to snagging those game-winning multi-kills. Lastly, the Tactical Stock increases aim walking movement speed, enabling you to keep on your toes and quickly sweep those corners.

The KSP 45 may not be as dominant as the MP5, but it still packs a punch.

This loadout uses Perk Greed, which allows players to take six perks. The combination of Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask will keep you safe from any explosives and noxious gas. These perks are important for most loadouts, but especially hyper-aggressive ones that prefer the run and gun approach to combat.

Assassin enables you to shut down any enemies that are currently on killstreaks, while Scavenger keeps your ammunition reserves healthy. Lastly, Ghost and Ninja keep you hidden from pesky enemy spy planes and silences your footsteps. 

In terms of equipment, we’ve chosen the standard Stimshot, Semtex, and Field Mic items. Having the healing from Stimshot will keep you fighting, while the Field Mic allows you to pick up on any enemy movements. 


So there you have it, an extremely deadly and versatile KSP 45 loadout. If you want to keep updated with all the latest Call of Duty news and updates, then follow us over on @DexertoIntel
