Modern Warfare to clean killfeed and fix tanks in next updates

Infinity Ward developers for Call of Duty Modern Warfare have confirmed that the next series of updates to the multiplayer shooter will focus on cleaning up the cluttered killfeed and nerfing the tanks in Ground War.

One step at a time, Modern Warfare developers are slowly but surely patching and fixing the problems. In just the past week, as of November 14, the developers released two updates in 1.07 and 1.08, and are already talking about what their next fixes will be.

David Mickner, a multiplayer designer for Modern Warfare, confirmed that the next update would feature a major alteration to the current feed. The feed will no longer have messages that say which players were promoted, saved, or avenged.

Also, the feed for collateral kills will be adjusted to a more classic feel to reduce clutter. The news prompted tons of positive responses from MW players, most notably ones who primarily play sniper classes.

Most recently, the Modern Warfare devs nerfed the 725 shotgun and the claymores, two weapons that sported high usage rates that were frustrating the majority of the MW community. But the 725 may have inadvertently been made even more powerful.

While the 725 is rumored to be nerfed again potentially, director Joe Cecot acknowledged that the tank in Ground War needs a spot on the nerf list as well.

Currently, the tanks run with limitless ammo and no way of running out of fuel, and certain maps in Ground War allow for tanks to camp along the mountainside and shell the spawn points relentlessly. 

Rocket launchers seemingly have little effect, and several fans are clamoring for a nerf of some kind, preferably to blast radius or fire rate. Some fans are suggesting boundaries for where the tank can go, or a fuel system so it can’t run forever.

Cecot also noted that a fix to collateral sniper shot themselves could be coming shortly.

Cecot and the MW team have been very busy the past few weeks fixing several issues with the game, including the previously mentioned 725 shotgun and claymores, weapon balancing, footstep and chatter noise, and more.

Several of those issues have been called out by pro players, who will be the focus of the Call of Duty League when it kicks off in January.

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.
