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.

LMGs aren’t exactly known for their mobility, but the Stoner 63 is one gun you’ll want to try giving a go. With the right attachments, it can be a real winner for you in Black Ops Cold War. 

The Stoner 63 has been a fan-favorite gun amongst LMG enthusiasts since it tore its way through the virtual battlefields of the original Black Ops. While it may no longer be as potent as it once was, this LMG still packs a punch. Whether you’re looking to grab the DM Ultra camo or aiming to get those all-important multi-kills, the Stoner 63 will enable you to do just that. 

It might not be as fast as the game’s SMG and assault rifle classes, but the Stoner 63 is arguably the most viable LMG in the game. Unlike the M60 and RPD, this LMG actually has decent accuracy by default. When you combine this with its high-damage rounds, you have a recipe for success.

The Stoner 63 is the most viable LMG in Black Ops Cold War.

Here’s the best attachments you can use on your Stoner 63 in Black Ops Cold War:


  • Optic: Millstop Reflex
  • Muzzle: Muzzle Brake 5.56
  • Barrel: 20.7 Match Grade
  • Body: SOF Target Designator
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Magazine: 100 RND
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap 
  • Stock: Raider Pad

While the Stoner 63 has a fairly decent standard sight, the Millstop Reflex remains a staple pick for most guns in Black Ops Cold War. It instantly gets rid of any annoying obstructions and provides a clear picture of your surroundings. 

Next up is the Muzzle Brake 5.56 and Field Agent Grip. Both of these attachments make the Stoner 63’s vertical recoil a lot more manageable, especially when firing for longer periods of time. The gun will still creep up the screen during prolonged engagements, but you’ll usually kill your target before needing to make any major adjustments. 

The 20.7 Match Grade increases the LMG’s damage by a whopping 100% enabling you to sit back and beam anyone that dares stray into your sights. When this is combined with the added reveal distance from the SOF Target Designator, you have a truly lethal combination.

Don’t expect to be light on your feet when you’re wielding this LMG.

While this loadout is not tailored around close-quarter fights, it can still give you a fighting chance against the game’s ever-popular SMG and AR classes. This is thanks to the Airborne Elastic Wrap and Raid Pad stock, which minimizes the gun’s ADS time and sprint to fire penalty. 

No LMG loadout would be complete without featuring a large magazine, so the 100 RND mag has been utilized. This enables you to effortlessly take down multiple foes or greatly damage any pesky Scorestreaks that are flying around. Just make sure you find somewhere safe to reload, as the lengthy animation can prove frustrating. 

So there you have it, a Stoner 63 loadout that will enable you to barrage your enemies with deadly precision. If you want to keep updated with all the latest Call of Duty news and updates, then follow us over on @DexertoIntel
