Karma reveals new OpTic Gaming role with insane Saug gameplay ahead of Champs

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 season, OpTic has failed to rediscover that event winning form that helped them to CWL Vegas success. A topsy-turvy year of near misses and disappointing finishes has seen the team switch up roles more than once.

The changes haven’t paid off too well, however, after they failed to win a map at the CWL Finals in Miami. Yet, with Call of Duty Championships on the horizon, and the ever-rabid Greenwall fans eager for major success, the stacked squad has made another switch – and it might just pay off, if Karma’s highlights are anything to go by. 

OpTic have been unable to recapture their early Black Ops 4 season form.

In a YouTube video from August 5, the three-time world champion finally showed off what is possible when he puts down the Maddox, picks up an SMG – and even returns to his Ruin specialist abilities. 

Playing alongside former long-time teammate Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper, Karma was able to go on a tear on his way to a win – racking up over 4500 total damage, the most in the lobby, as well as picking up a set of full streaks during the Hardpoint contest. 

Of course, while he’s been able to dominate in online matches against mix-match teams of other pros, it remains to be seen if the OpTic line-up can replicate their form in the final LAN event of the season.

The Greenwall has been drawn against Evil Geniuses, Carnage Gaming, and TrainHard Esport in a CoD Champs pool that many will expect them to progress from in relatively comfortable fashion.

With the new release of Modern Warfare approaching, and Call of Duty making the switch to a brand-new franchised league, nobody is quite sure what the future holds for players and their current rosters.

If they aren’t set to remain in their current forms, then everyone will want to give their fans a victorious send-off – but, perhaps, none more so than Karma and OpTic.

Bizarre Black Ops Cold War exploit completely removes sprint-fire delay

A strange exploit has been found with the Gung-Ho perk in Black Ops Cold War, which removes the sprint-fire delay from all weapons in-game.

As with other online multiplayer shooters, Call of Duty players, typically, have to have quick reaction speed in order to win gunfights and pick up kills against the enemy team.

While this reaction time can be difficult to improve, some players have found another way to gain an advantage over their opponents with a bug that allows you to fire the first few bullets even earlier.

This exploit was found with the Gung-Ho perk, which allows players to shoot their weapons while sprinting. The Cold War perk has been a go-to for those who love to run and gun, but this new bug completely cuts out the time it takes to start firing.

One Redditor u/b3nb0i shared this unusual glitch with the perk, revealing that, with the help of lethal equipment such as semtex, it’s possible to cancel the sprint-to-fire delay on a gun.

Usually, even with the Gung-Ho perk equipped, there is a small delay in the time it takes to straighten the weapon from the sprint position to be ready to fire.

However, with semtex or another piece of equipment in-hand, the gun is already in a position to fire and cancels the delay, making it quite deadly in any gunfights. It is worth noting that it is not possible to ADS while using this exploit and that players would have to rely on their weapons attachments to make their shots more accurate.

While this strange exploit does require some getting used to, it could still be quite overpowered particularly on maps with short-range engagements such as Nuketown, especially as the grenade will drop if you’re taken down – like how the Martyrdom perk used to work.

As of now, it is unclear whether this was intended to be a feature in Cold War but, if it is found to be a glitch it will likely be patched by Treyarch in one of the future updates.
