Call of Duty roster during the last roster change period of the 2019 season, with Nick ‘Nolson’ Nolson seemingly set to step aside.

Call of Duty’s final Rostermania period for the Black Ops 4 season is upon us, as teams gear up for the home stretch of the competitive season.

With the window to make moves only open until June 20, teams have already made a few tweaks ahead of what could be an incredibly frantic period. Spanish squad Team Heretics set things rolling with their change, but they might not be alone as Splyce are seemingly set to make a move of their own.

@SplyceSplyce looked to be a top squad in Black Ops 4 but have yet to find themselves as winners despite stellar performances.

Following their disappointing 7-8th place finish at CWL Anaheim, Splyce star Daniel ‘Loony’ Loza thanked Nick ‘Nolson’ Nolson – who initially joined as the team’s substitute before replacing Lamar ‘Accuracy’ Abedi – for stepping in.

Loony tweeted: “I appreciate you for filling in for us the last week of the pro league and at Anaheim. You took a risk and I thank you for that. The 2 wins you helped us get at the league were huge. Hope you learned something from it. Best of luck to you! @NolsonCoD

Who could Splyce pick up?

While a change to the Splyce roster hasn’t been confirmed, thanking Nolson for his service would suggest that the North American-European mix squad would have some irons in the fire.

Prior to Nolson joining the active roster, Splyce had been linked with a move for Luminosity Gaming’s Pierce ‘Gunless’ Hillman following his removal from the team’s starting roster. Gunless remains on the bench for Luminosity and could easily find himself as a key piece in this Rostermania period.

It remains to be seen who the team decides is the right fit for them, especially with players continuing to drop off teams as restricted free agents. They won’t have much time to deliberate, as the window slams shut and rosters are locked in for the remainder of the season on Thursday.

“Broken” reticles you should avoid using in Black Ops Cold War

Since the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, players have been grinding to unlock their favorite weapons, skins, and customization options. Unlocking the best reticles for each gun is important, and a video by YouTuber ‘JGOD’ has exposed some huge issues with the game’s current reticle choices.

Since the game’s release on November 13, Black Ops Cold War players have been furiously grinding to unlock additional weapons and customization options in both Multiplayer and Zombies.

Some of the most important items for players to unlock are the various gun reticles across the two main game modes. Players want to make sure they are using the best reticle to help them stay on-target during the action.

In a video posted to his YouTube channel, content creator ‘JGOD’ has criticized the current offering of reticles in Cold War, along with confirming which are the best options with what’s available.

Reticles are just one of the many customization options available to players in Cold War.

Broken reticles in Cold War

In the video, JGOD takes a deep dive into the issues with the reticles available in Multiplayer and Zombies. He breaks down exactly what is wrong with each of the reticles for the 1.25x and 1.37x scopes, which are some of the most popular options in Cold War.

JGOD starts off on Cartel with some basic red dot/triangle options for each scope, showing how they can be seen easily when looking at textures like walls. However, as soon as he moves his reticle up into the air, the red crosshairs completely disappear.

“Where did that red reticle go?” he asks while looking around. The YouTuber continues by showing how some reticles – even yellow and green options – are invisible when looking at other textures around the map. He seems shocked, saying: “I’ve never, ever, ever, ever had this issue in any other Call of Duty.”

The video continues with a breakdown of each reticle’s in-game appearance compared to their image in Cold War’s loadout menu. JGOD shows that almost every red, yellow, or green reticle is affected by different visual issues, and players should avoid those options until the problems are addressed.

Best reticle options for Black Ops Cold War

With all the issues JGOD pointed out in his video, players might be wondering what reticles are still worth using. Luckily, there are still a few good options available.

Similar to Modern Warfare, the blue reticle options appear to be the best choice for Cold War players at the moment. JGOD confirms that, saying: “When it comes to the reticles . . . you wanna pretty much go with the blue ones.” He winds down his video by saying he is “just bringing awareness to this type of issue, so that if the devs were unaware of how broken this is, they can get on it.”

While Treyarch has confirmed they are working on other reticles issues – like certain reticles appearing upside down – they have not addressed the concerns surrounding reticle visibility at the time of writing.
