The 2013 Call of Duty world champion Adam ‘KiLLa’ Sloss has urged amateur Call of Duty players to “jump ship” to Halo Infinite when it arrives at the tail end of 2020.

KiLLa has had his fair share of highs and lows in the Call of Duty world, from winning the first-ever World Championship tournament in 2013 to struggling to find consistent teams or placements in recent years.

Now, though, he’s put out a call to amateur CoD players hoping to make their mark on the Call of Duty League, urging them to “jump ship” and pick up Halo Infinite before it’s too late.

Halo Infinite is still due a Holiday 2020 release, though no date is set in stone.

The CDL is currently in its inaugural season and is powering through the current global health crisis, having launched with twelve teams that each paid upwards of $25m for a place in the league.

Halo, on the other hand, has seemed to be slowly struggling in recent years, with the dizzying heights of Halo 2 and 3 not quite being replicated in the esports scene for some time.

During a discussion with some amateur players on June 24, Sloss was brutally honest about his thoughts on the CDL.

“There’s no chance any franchise will buy into cod after no ranked for a whole year,” he said. “There’s no return for franchises and investors, it would be stupid to buy. I’m not even educated in business like others and I know it’s a flawed system.”

He went on to add that “Microsoft is backing” Halo Infinite when it comes out with a “$500 million budget,” adding that it’s “time to jump ship before it’s too late and you’re part of a failed experiment.”

Minnesota RØKKR’s Justin ‘Silly’ Fargo-Palmer responded to KiLLa, saying that “The CDL should look more appealing” and that he is “sure the rumored teams that were planning on getting in last year aren’t going to chalk it now,” which looks promising for both the league and the players who haven’t quite made the cut.

Of course, it’s hard to tell what will come of next season for either Halo or Call of Duty. By all means, CoD seems to be having more success as an esport, but with the impending release of Black Ops Cold War and Halo Infinite, it’s very possible that we see Halo start to rear its head once more.

Best Type 63 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Type 63 is capable of dishing out some incredible damage thanks to its methodical firing pattern and excellent precision. Here are all the attachments you should be using when running and gunning with the Type 63. 

If you’re a fan of Black Ops Cold War’s Tactical Rifle class or a player that prefers a more methodical approach to combat, then the Type 63 is one weapon you’ll want to focus on leveling up. While burst fire weapons like the M16 and AUG continue to dominate the game, there have been a number of players picking up this reliable rifle. 

Despite its slower rate of fire, this tactical rifle is capable of killing an enemy in just two shots (one body shot and one headshot). The Type 63 is a great option for those that want the damage of a sniper, but wish to be more active in their playstyle. If you have a good trigger finger and decent aim, you’ll definitely want to add the Type 63 to your collection. 

In order to help you get the most kills with the Type 63, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

The Type 63 is one of the most lethal weapons in the entire game.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Type 63 in Black Ops Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex 
  • Spetsnaz Compensator 
  • 18.3” Strike Team
  • KGB Target Designator 
  • Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip
  • 30 RND
  • Gru Elastic Wrap
  • KGB Pad

While you can still make a decent Type 63 loadout without the extra three attachment slots given by the Gunfighter wildcard, the extra kit makes this build extremely comfy. First up is the Millstop Reflex. This is one of the only optics available that doesn’t clutter the screen or provide a great deal of magnification. 

While the 2.0x and 4.0x optics may give you greater precision on the game’s larger maps and modes, the vast majority favor close-quarter engagements. This is also why the 18.3” Strike Team barrel has been chosen. This handy attachment increases your fire rate by 11%, allowing you to get out more shots onto the target. 

It also increases your damage by 9%. While this may seem like an incremental increase, it does make a noticeable difference when combined with a higher rate of fire. To alleviate the Type 63’s horizontal/vertical recoil, we’ve attached both the Spetsnaz Compensator and Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip.

The Type 63 may not be the most popular gun, but its high DPS makes it a worthy pick.

These attachments make the Type 63 incredibly accurate across all ranges, allowing you to beam opponents with laser-like precision. The bullets will always form in a tight circle around your target, so there’s no need to wrestle with any recoil. Simply point and shoot. 

As you may know by now, visibility in Black Ops Cold War can be rather poor. Even if you follow our visibility guide, there will still be times where you get caught out by pesky head glitches. Fortunately, the KGB Target Designator adds 60% Reveal Distance when aiming down sights. 

The Gru Elastic Wrap is one of the most important attachments as it increases ADS time (30%), Flinch Resistance (90%), and enables aiming while going prone. Combine this with the Sprint to Fire and additional Aim Walking Movement Speed of the KGB Pad, and you have an incredibly mobile rifle that is capable of blistering fast kill times.
