The LA Guerrillas have revealed their four-player lineup for the second season of the Call of Duty League, with multiple World Champions leading the org into the 2021 campaign.

After dropping their entire lineup following the CDL’s conclusion and considering Black Ops Cold War is going to be a 4v4 format, the Guerrillas came out firing with a roster stacked with talent from end-to-end.

The lineup consists of Adam ‘Assault’ Garcia, Reece ‘Vivid’ Drost, Justin ‘SiLLY’ Fargo-Palmer, and Bryan ‘Apathy’ Zhelyazkov.

Meanwhile, the club also revealed their academy team consisting of Gears of War legend Billy ‘MentaL’ Putnam, Martin ‘MJCheen’ Chino, Kaden ‘Exceed’ Stockdale, and ‘Nero,’ pending league approval.

The only remnant of the team’s inaugural season is Vivid, who extended his contract with the club on September 9. This followed the announced on Sept 1 that coaches Richard ‘Ricky’ Stacy and Embry ‘Bevils’ Bevil would return for the next season,

This will be a completely new look from LA, previously parting ways with Guerrillas lead Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price during the season before dropping the rest of their roster sheet days after the free agent window opened.

After the club announced their new look, former Guerrillas frontman ACHES congratulated his fellow pros on the move, seeing as they’ll take the reigns from the org from here on.

Rounding out the 2020 season, the LA Guerrillas finished last during the regular season and bowed out of the playoffs in the first elimination rounds.

The club had spurts of composure and great play during the season, but struggled all year to put favorable results on end.

While the team bottomed out of the league, the new roster playing in the updated format for Black Ops Cold War could be the ticket the Guerrillas need to make a turnaround in 2021.

With a new season on the horizon, they’ll look to get off on the right foot with the renewed lineup.

Best CR-56 AMAX loadouts for Warzone and Modern Warfare

The CR-56 AMAX is a great gun choice to utilize in Modern Warfare for those who value mobility. Here, we break down two of the strongest CR-56 loadouts you should be using. 

While the Fennec SMG has proved popular amongst those who favor the run and gun playstyle, the CR-56 AMAX gives players more ranged precision and damage for sacrificing speed. The Galil, now known as the CR-56 AMAX, aims to shake up the current assault rifle meta, giving players another option outside of the incredibly popular Grau 5.56 and M4A1 loadouts

The Galil dominated foes in the multiplayer battlefields of Black Ops 1, allowing players to kill targets in just three shots. As a result, this deadly assault rifle became popular for those that wanted to wrack up high kill counts. While the CR-56 AMAX has lost its original name, it still packs a real punch in both Modern Warfare and Warzone. In order to help you get the most out of the CR-56 AMAX, we’ve put together two loadouts that you can use to gain a competitive edge. 

Best CR-56 AMAX loadout for Warzone

Infinity Ward/DexertoBoost your ranged damage with these CR-56 AMAX attachments.
  • Monolithic Suppressor 
  • XRK Zodiac S440
  • VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Commando Foregrip
  • 45 Round Mags

Unlike Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer maps, the vast frozen landscapes of Verdansk require players to test their medium to long-range shooting. While the initial dash for loot results in plenty of close-quarters firefights, you’ll also need a weapon that can effectively deliver lethal rounds at a distance should you wish to keep your enemies at bay. 

As a result, this loadout is all about pushing the CR-56 AMAX to its ranged limits, while also keeping your ADS speed to a minimum. First up is the Monolithic Suppressor and XRK Zodiac S440. These two attachments drastically increase your effective damage range, reduce the CR-56 AMAX’s recoil, and speed up its bullet travel time. While these attachments may increase your ADS speed, we think this loss is worth it, especially when you need to land those all-important ranged head and body shots. 

The VLK 3.0x Optic is great for a higher zoom level, giving you a greater edge when attacking from a distance, at a slight sacrifice of ADS speed.

The Commando Foregrip keeps the gun stable when aiming down sights and firing, while the XRK CR-56 Stippled Wrap greatly decreases your overall ADS time and sprint to fire speed. Not only will these attachments help keep your shots on target, they will also give you the ADS speed needed to be competitive in close-quarter fights.  

Lastly, the 45 Round Mags supply players with more than enough bullets to shred through even the most well-armored of foes. Having the extra rounds will also keep you from needing to reload every second, so if you wish to avoid any frustrating deaths, then make sure you equip this attachment. 

Best CR-56 AMAX loadout for Modern Warfare multiplayer

Infinity Ward/DexertoUse this loadout when you want to rival Modern Warfare’s close-quarter SMGs.
  • Monolithic Suppressor 
  • XRK Zodiac S440
  • CR-56 EXO
  • Commando Foregrip
  • 45 Round Mags

Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer favors close to medium range firefights, so this loadout is all about buffing the CR-56 AMAX’s ADS speed and lowering the gun’s recoil. 

The CR-56 EXO stock drastically lowers the CR-56 AMAX’s ADS speed while increasing your ADS strafe, allowing you to quickly deliver a highly accurate spray of bullets in just a blink of an eye. While this attachment won’t stop you from falling prey to the popular MP5 and Fennec loadouts, it will increase your odds of survival when encountering the SMGs. 

The XRK Zodiac S440, Commando Foregrip, and 45 Round Mags are the three most optimal attachments here, so make sure you build around these for a new loadout.
