European Call of Duty pro players Dylan ‘MadCat’ Daly, David ‘Dqvee’ Davies and Joshua-Lee ‘Joshh’ Sheppard have reacted to their controversial elimination from the CWL 2K Series tournament, where they were forced to forfeit a round in the final Search and Destroy of their quarterfinal match-up.
MadCat’s team were taking on Shea “QwiKeR” Sweeney’s new roster, when Dqvee called in a Lightning Strike in an attempt to eliminate the final two remaining enemy players during Round 10 of the final map of the series.
Unfortunately, Dqvee had forgotten that the use of killstreaks in Search and Destroy was recently banned by the CWL, meaning that he and his squad were forced to forfeit the round, bringing the score to 5-5.
With Dqvee’s Lightning Strike failing to kill any enemies, and the position of Qwiker known after he took out Joshh, MadCat and his squad felt they shouldn’t have to forfeit a round, and were even more upset when Team Qwiker went on to win Round 11 and eliminate their squad.
Madcat aimed his annoyance at Team QwiKeR’s Dylan “Dylan” Henderson , who the former Splyce man described as a ‘gremlin’, claiming that he was: “One of them kids that do the paper round on his sisters bike with stabilizers.”
DylanCoD, what a gremlin btw. One of them kids that do the paper round on his sisters bike with stabilizers.
Dqvee, who made the unfortunate error that cost his team the round, stated that he had put on “an absolute clinic” after managing to find 17 kills, simply calling the decision to forfeit them a round “a shame.”
Put on an absolute clinic going 17-7 as well, what a shame.
Meanwhile, Joshh and Dylan got into a heated argument, with Joshh calling the Northern Irishman “shite” and telling him that he hoped the decision to forfeit them was “worth it.”
Dave has literally called someone mid, said he was going back to spawn and was about to use hailstorm for a sec. is what it is we could have taken the round and u lot are tweeting personal shit when u even admitted u would do the same. is what it is not just my decsion.
While Sheppard and Daly seemed to be placing the blame on Team QwiKeR’s Dylan for making the decision, he took to Reddit to defend their choice to force Team MadCat to forfeit the round, and confirmed that all five members of Team QwiKeR had agreed on the verdict.
Unfortunately for MadCat and his teammates, their loss spelled the end of their 2K run. However, DQWWN’s tournament isn’t over yet, as they are scheduled to face off against SunnyB and his squad in the semifinals.
While Warzone currently shares its loadouts with Modern Warfare, it won’t be long until Black Ops Cold War’s guns are integrated into the game. Here are seven guns that you should be leveling up ahead of the cross-progression update.
Black Ops Cold War features plenty of deadly weapons that will drastically shake up the Warzone meta, giving players even more choice when it comes to crafting the perfect loadout. Warzone will also share weapon progression with both Black Ops Cold War and Modern Warfare, so you’ll be able to level up your guns in either game. This integration will likely have a huge impact on Warzone’s current meta, especially when Treyarch adds new weapons to Black Ops Cold War.
While Modern Warfare’s ever-popular Kilo 141 and MP5 loadouts will still likely remain popular picks among players, there are a number of new and returning guns that could dethrone the current kings. As a result, we’ve put together a list of the seven best Black Ops Cold War guns you’ll want to use in Warzone.
Black Ops Cold War’s AK-47 will be a force to be reckoned with when it drops into Verdansk.
While this Russian rifle struggled to compete in Modern Warfare’s, it has come back with a vengeance in Treyarch’s latest title. In fact, the AK-47 is the best gun in the entire game thanks to its high-damage and incredible versatility. Whether you prefer to run and gun your way to victory, or methodically pick off targets from afar, there is a loadout that caters to every kind of playstyle.
This reliable rifle has proven so lethal that it has dominated the pro and casual CoD scene since launch. One of the most potent AK-47 builds literally has no recoil, so this could rival the new Kilo 141 when it drops. The difference between both Modern Warfare’s AK-47 and the current Black Ops Variant is night and day.
The Krig 6 is one of the most accurate AR’s in the game.
The Krig 6 has been making a name for itself thanks to its low recoil and methodical fire rate. While it doesn’t deal as much damage as the AK-47, it makes up for this with its fantastic precision. Warzone is dominated by assault rifles like the Kilo 141, Grau 5.56, and M13 as these weapons enable the user to beam opponents without the need to wrestle with any finicky recoil patterns.
After all, being able to effortlessly hit players from across all ranges is a huge bonus to any Warzone player looking to increase their kill count. The Krig 6 also boasts excellent weapon control and quick reloads, making it a great pick for those that prefer to seek out those all-important headshots.
Only time will tell whether this classic assault rifle has what it takes to wreak havoc across Verdansk.
Modern Warfare’s FAMAS demonstrated just how bad burst rifles could be in Warzone, but the M16 could change this notion completely. Unlike the FAMAS, Black Ops Cold War’s M16 can dish out highly accurate rounds in a matter of seconds. In fact, the iconic burst rifle was recently nerfed as it was overperforming.
Despite Treyarch toning down its damage range and slightly increasing its delay between bursts, this AR still absolutely melts opponents. Any gun that can accurately drop an enemy in a couple of bursts is always going to pique the interest of Warzone players. As proven by gameplay in Fireteam: Dirty Bomb, the M16 can quickly down even the most well-armored of enemies.
The MP5 still continues to dominate the SMG competition.
A lot of Call of Duty fans were left disappointed when they found that the MP5 still remained at the top of the SMG rankings. Multiplayer lobbies were dominated by this lightning-fast SMG during Black Ops Cold War’s launch week, and it’s not hard to see why. Despite the recent nerf, the MP5 still boasts high rates of fire, great mobility, and decent close-quarters damage.
Whether this variant will prove as lethal as the Warzone’s current MP5 remains to be seen, but we expect the new attachments will certainly allow it to rival its predecessor.
The Type 63 is one Tactical Rifle that is worth adding to your arsenal.
While the Type 63 shares a few similarities to Modern Warfare’s EBR-14, it is better in every single way. Not only does it have a significantly lower recoil pattern, it can also unleash some incredibly fast two shot kills. Equipping the 18.3” Strike Team barrel will not only speed up this semi-auto rifle’s fire rate, but it will also increase its damage.
While most semi-auto rifles are often plagued by sluggish fire rates, high recoil, and lackluster magazine sizes, the Type 63 doesn’t fall victim to these negatives. Just like Warzone’s Marksman Rifles, the Type 63 offers sniper-like precision and damage with the added bonus of mobility.
The AUG’s highly accurate burst fire makes it lethal across all ranges.
Unlike Modern Warfare’s full-auto AUG SMG, Black Ops Cold War’s variant offers greater accuracy and range. This burst-fire tactical rifle is capable of dealing even more damage than the M16, especially when it’s equipped with the 19.6” Match Grade Barrel. This increases its effective damage range by 100%, making it hit even harder across mid to long-range distances.
Burst fire weapons have obviously been lacking in Warzone, but Black Ops’ AUG could quickly change that.
The Stoner 63 could rival the popular Bruen and PKM loadouts.
LMGs have been somewhat lacking in Black Ops Cold War due to their overall bulk and slower ADS times. However, this isn’t the case in Warzone. After all, the Bruen, PKM, and the FiNN are prime examples of how LMGs can dominate the competition.
The Stoner 63 is arguably the best suited LMG for Warzone. This is partly down to a combination of speed and accuracy. While both the RPD and M60 offer better damage, their poor accuracy makes them difficult to recommend. Simply attach the SALVO 125 RND Fast Mag and the Airborne Elastic Wrap to begin getting those game-winning squad wipes.
So there you have it, seven of the best Black Ops Cold War guns you should be using in Warzone. If you want to keep updated with all the latest Call of Duty news and updates, then follow us over on @DexertoIntel.
