Methodz perfectly describes his career after reportedly being dropped by the FaZe CoD team

FaZe Clan professional Call of Duty player Anthony ‘Methodz’ Zinni perfectly summed up his recent career with one slick analogy.

Methodz looks to be in the middle of a roster shuffle after not playing for FaZe Clan in the third CMG Prodown tournament. Zinni did play in the tournament, however, it was for the current G2 Esports squad in place of Richard ‘Ricky’ Stacy. He was replaced on the FaZe line-up by up-and-coming star Cellium.

That move, plus Methodz’ recent Twitter activity in following the owner of G2 Esports, Carlos ‘Ocelote’ Rodriguez, led to plenty of speculation about him being dropped from the FaZe roster and moving to G2.

DexertoMethodz has played on five different teams in the last 12 months.

The former OpTic Gaming player added fuel to the fires of those rumors while talking on Kenny ‘Kenny’ Williams’ stream. Zinni offered up a hilarious analogy for where he is at in his career after repeatedly being dropped by teams.

“I’m like that extra grocery you try carrying into the house and it just keeps falling,” Methodz said, sparking a burst of laughter from other members of the call between pro players.

After laughing at Zinni’s somewhat-truthful joke, former player turned-analyst Anthony ‘Nameless’ Wheeler, offered up a comparison between he and Methodz. “You know what’s crazy, Zinni, I was the same type of player dude. You just like randomly just get dropped.

“It’s like ‘I didn’t do anything wrong’ but ‘yeah, we think this guy can just win us a chip single-handedly so peace.”

It remains to be seen just what the future holds for Methodz but his less than subtle hint points to his future being away from FaZe Clan.

How to view your Black Ops Cold War stats on PC, PS5 & Xbox

Call of Duty is enjoyed by some of the most competitive gamers around and, of course, competitors want to analyze their performances. Fortunately, there are multiple ways to view your Black Ops Cold War stats, no matter your system of choice.

If you played Modern Warfare or Warzone, then chances are that you’re already somewhat familiar with checking your CoD statistics. Aside from the in-game client, using the website COD Tracker was a very popular way to check, and compare, your numbers when away from your console or PC.

That remains an option for Black Ops Cold War in 2020 and beyond, but players can also check their stats in-game and on the official Call of Duty app. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages, but they all help you paint a clearer picture of your performance.

Whether you simply want to track your progress as a player or compare yourself to the game’s best, we’ve broken the two ways, outside of the in-game client, that you can check your Black Ops Cold War statistics.

COD Tracker

COD Tracker gives you an overview of your stats with the options to dive deeper.

COD Tracker’s offering is likely the most thorough option around, as you are able to track a ton of statistics, filter by mode, map, and weapon while comparing yourself to global leaderboards. 

Like Warzone, you can even go back through many of your recent matches to analyze individual performances.

  1. Head to COD Tracker and enter either your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  2. Navigate to the Black Ops Cold War tag
  3. Check out how you stack up against the competition

Call of Duty Companion

The CoD Companion App is a nice alternative for people looking to check numbers on their phone.

The Call of Duty Companion app is a very easy way to access many of your statistics without turning on your PC or console. While it doesn’t have as much data as COD Tracker might give you (and rounds K/D a decimal sooner than Tracker), the UI is very intuitive, with pie charts and line graphs for your numbers and whatnot.

  1. Search “Call of Duty Companion” on your device’s app store or through their website
  2. Download and open
  3. Sign in with your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  4. Navigate to “Player,” then scroll to “Black Ops Cold War” instead of “Modern Warfare” from the drop-down menu

While BOCW’s in-game client may feel somewhat limited in its options for analyzing your performance and place on the leaderboards, these two options each provide a ton of information.

Both provide similar degrees of data with the principal differences coming in their presentation, so it’s really up to you which you prefer to use.
