Karma Sends a Warning to AR Players Ahead of the Black Ops 4 Season

Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow already has his sights set on the main assault rifle role in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

While playing the the first day of the game’s beta release, Anthony ‘NAMELESS’ Wheeler asked the Canadian how he was enjoying the game and got the response “loving it, loving it.”

NAMELESS then asked whether he’s coming back to win another Call of Duty World Championship and the legend stated “whoever’s main AR shits the bed at champs, watch out”.

The three time Call of Duty world champion hasn’t been competing since he was dropped by OpTic Gaming after CWL Seattle in May of this year.

However, his status as one of the greatest Call of Duty players to ever touch the franchise means that he is still looked at as potentially the best free agent on the market heading into the next game.

With the Call of Duty: WWII World Championship set to take place from August 15 – 19, it won’t be long before all eyes turn towards Black Ops 4 and a new year of competition.

The 25-year-old spent most of his three years with OpTic filling in the flex or support roles but has also played in just about every other position in the past, including the main AR.

In fact, he was widely considered to be one the best slayers in the game throughout the Black Ops 2 and Ghosts seasons and won two of his world titles in those games.

If Karma really does intend on returning as an assault rifle player in Black Ops 4, you can almost guarantee that some top teams will find space for him in their roster.

Warzone Zombies ‘black screen’ glitch makes it impossible to see

The Zombie Royale mode in Warzone was barely a few hours old before frustrating glitches and bugs started popping up — and one of them is just giving players a black screen, making it impossible to see or play properly.

Whenever a new update or patch arrives in Warzone, or any game for that matter, there are likely to be some issues, whether it be balancing, servers or something similar.

That said, it’s usually something you can gloss over and not worry too much about until the next patch — but this doesn’t quite come under that category.

While the map for the new Zombie Royale mode is set at night time, some players are getting a little more darkness than they bargained for.

Zombie Royale sees players fighting off — and even becoming — zombies, in Modern Warfare’s Halloween event.

It wasn’t long before players realized that occasionally they would drop into the mode and be plunged into total darkness, with what people are referring to as the “black screen” glitch.

As shown in the video below — and from accounts by other players — the screen goes completely black except for the HUD, which doesn’t provide massive help when traversing Verdansk and engaging in gunfights.

It essentially gives the players affected no chance of winning their fights, barring some sort of miracle or some incredible callouts from teammates, making it almost impossible to win games.

As you can see in the above video, there are a couple of ways to get rid of the black screen, but they’re not exactly helpful.

One method is to look through the Spotter Scope, which gives you your vision back and can at least be used to see where you are, and you also lose the black screen bug when you become a zombie, which kind of nullifies the point of the game mode in the first place.

It’s unclear what exactly is causing this bug, but expect Infinity Ward to be looking for a fix imminently — with any luck, this problem shouldn’t affect players for too much longer.
