Modern Warfare player discovers a perfect way to deny Care Packages

Modern Warfare players are discovering killstreaks that come in Care Packages, like Juggernaut, can get blasted away to effectively deny them their upgrade.

Unlike most of the killstreaks someone can earn, the ones offloaded from a chopper are susceptible to their surroundings and aren’t an automatic pickup. This means that it can be affected by everything from environmental hazards and even other players.

As unfortunate as it is to have a package stuck atop of a building or elevated roof without a chance to recover it, it’s even more sinister when a player purposefully targets the incoming ordinance.

That was a tough lesson that user ‘Bwil34’ found out after finally getting their first Juggernaut while playing Hardpoint on Rust. The chaos of the close-quarter battlefield forced them to call down their kill streak in the corner of the map.

Rust is infamous for its close proximity, as a care package’s smoke in the sky can be easily spotted from any given vantage point on the map.

Another player must have got sight of Bwil34’s killstreak coming in, because moments after it was dangling in the sky, it was shot out of nowhere.

More accurately, someone must have used what was presumably a Strela-P to rip the falling crate away from its trajectory. The blast was enough to push it out of the map, forcing the player to look at it in dismay.

So I got my first juggernaut today, and… from modernwarfare

Unfortunately for the player, they were on the receiving end for one of the best ways to deny a Care Package from an unsuspecting opponent.

Pulling this off takes a few conditions to be met that includes lining up the shot, waiting for the timing, and hope the package is dropping close enough to the map’s side for the shot to force it out of play.

The missile took the Care Package with it outside of Rust’s boundries.

But on a map like Rust, where the only reliable safe spots to call in a Care Package are on specific corners of the map and dead center of the middle highrise, players can easily deny these kinds of killstreaks.

This has to be one of the worst ways to lose out on a Juggernaut in Modern Warfare, so make sure to give your care package a ton of cover then next time you call it in.

The QBZ-83 is may not be as strong or as accurate as the AK-47, but its superior mobility and handling make it a great pick. Here all the perks, attachments, and equipment you need to push this assault rifle to its peak. 

Whether you’re looking to level up every gun to grab those ultra-rare camos or just wanting to give the QBZ-83 a go, then you’ll want to use this loadout. This assault rifle is often overlooked by a lot of players and it’s currently one of the least used guns in the assault rifle category. However, if you’re willing to put in the effort into learning the QBZ, you’ll find that it is a pretty well-round rifle. 

This loadout boosts the QBZ-83’s already great speed, but also increases the gun’s accuracy and firepower. If you’re after an AR that can go toe to toe with the game’s SMGs, then look no further. In order to help you get the most out of the QBZ-83, we’ve put together a reliable loadout you can use to get those deadly Scorestreaks.

Best QBZ-83 loadout for Black Ops Cold War

The recent FFAR 1 and M16 nerfs have made the QBZ-83 a more viable option.
  • Muzzle: Infantry Compensator 
  • Barrel: 15.5” Reinforced Heavy
  • Underbarrel:Foregrip
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap 
  • Stock: Raider Stock

Secondary

  • 1911

Throwables

  • Stimshot
  • Semtex
  • Field Mic

Perks

  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket + Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Assassin + Scavenger 
  • Perk 3: Ninja + Ghost

Wildcard

  • Perk Greed

Due to the QBZ-83 having a very clear default sight, we’ve saved the attachment slot to make a much more comfy build. The Infantry Compensator and Foregrip help control both the gun’s horizontal and vertical recoil. This enables you to remain accurate at medium to long ranges. 

Adding to this is the 15.5” Heavy. Not only does this attachment increase the AR’s bullet velocity by a significant 40%, but it also increases the gun’s damage range by 100%. Whether you’re planning to play on the game’s bigger maps or just wanting to increase your kill potential, then the Reinforced Heavy is a must. 

Rounding things off at the bottom, is the Airborne Elastic Wrap and Raider Stock. These attachments increase ADS and sprint to fire time, allowing you to aggressively rush your foes without having to worry about sluggish performance. 

In terms of equipment, the standard Stimshot, Semtex, and Field Mic have been chosen. These items will keep you on your feet and enable you to get the drop on any potential targets.

The QBZ-83’s speed and firepower makes for some blisteringly fast kills.

This loadout uses Perk Greed, which allows players to take six perks. The combination of Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask will keep you safe from any explosives and noxious gas. These perks are important for most loadouts, but especially hyper-aggressive ones that prefer the run and gun approach to combat.

Meanwhile, Assassin reveals high priority targets and enables you to get the drop on any enemies who are on killstreaks. Scavenger also replenishes the QBZ-83’s ammo from fallen players, so you’ll never have to hunt for another gun when your ammo is low. 

Lastly, Ghost and Ninja keep your movements hidden from prying eyes and enable you to go for those sneaky flanks. After all, this loadout favors both close to mid-range firefights, so don’t be afraid to get into the very thick of a fight.
