Following the announcement that 100 Thieves would be competing in the Call of Duty League once again, Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag and general manager Eric ‘Muddawg’ Sanders have discussed what kind of player they’re looking for to complete the squad.

The huge reveal of the Los Angeles Thieves was one that many Call of Duty fans saw coming, but still got extremely excited about, especially given the success of their previous tenure in the league.

As it stands, LA Thieves have three of their four roster spots occupied by Austin ‘SlasheR’ Liddicoat, Kenny ‘Kenny’ Williams and Thomas ‘TJHaly’ Haly, as well as a substitute in Zack ‘Drazah’ Jordan.

Now, they’ve got one spot left to fill — and we might be one step closer to finding out who they’re bringing in.

What type of player do LA Thieves want?

While discussing the build of their roster in a November 9 YouTube upload, Muddawg and Nade spoke about the above players and just how much they bring to the team, before discussing the criteria they want their final player to fill.

“We really want someone with at least the ability to run the aggressive SMG role in case we do need three SMGs to pair with SlasheR,” said Muddawg.

“Really, just that versatility, players with experience at the highest level, we want this roster winning right now. Kenny, SlasheR, TJ have all proven it. We need a player who can compliment them and win championships.”

Topic starts at 9.55

Who could fit the bill?

Obviously, this discussion created a lot of speculation among fans of the team and Call of Duty esports fans in general.

One name that was thrown around was that of Ian ‘Enable’ Wyatt, who featured on the original 100 Thieves roster in Black Ops 4 alongside Kenny and SlasheR, and will be looking to get back into the mixer after a disappointing tenure with Seattle Surge in the first year of the CDL.

Other experienced SMGs who are currently available could include the likes of Jonathan ‘John’ Perez, who sat the year out, and some fans even suggested that Donovan ‘Temp’ Laroda could be a potential fit.

Needless to say, this roster spot will be highly sought after, so the team at LA Thieves will have a lot of options — but who they will finally settle on remains a mystery.

Best Milano 821 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

If you’re always pushing the pace and playing aggressively in Call of Duty, SMGs should be your go-to in Black Ops Cold War and we’ve got an overview of the fastest Milano 821 loadout possible.

While Assault Rifles are there to help you in mid to long-range gunfights, SMGs are always about up-close engagements. You should be trying to blitz your way through the map and towards the next kill.

As a result, you’re going to want to fine-tune your weapon of choice to fit that playstyle. Rather than equipping attachments to improve your aim or your reveal distance, for example, speed should be the top priority.

Thankfully, the Milano 821 is an early unlock in the SMG category and it’s one of the fastest guns in the game. Here’s how you can get the most out of it.

Best Milano 821 loadout for Black Ops Cold War

Milano loadout Black Ops Cold War
Reach new speeds with this ridiculous Milano loadout.
  • Optic: Microflex LED
  • Muzzle: Infantry Compensator
  • Barrel: 10.6 Task Force
  • Body: SWAT 5mw Laser Sight
  • Underbarrel: SFOD Speedgrip
  • Magazine: Vandal Speed Loader
  • Handle: Speed Tape
  • Stock: Marathon Stock

We recommend picking the Infantry Compensator Muzzle over the Socom Eliminator. While the latter provides even more vertical recoil control, it comes at the expense of movement speed. Your goal is to be as quick as possible, so hindering speed is a big deal-breaker for this loadout.

The 10.6 Task Force Barrel might be the strongest attachment in Cold War. Not only does it boost your overall weapon damage, but also the range of the SMG along with its bullet velocity. There is no better way to bump the lethality of the gun but obviously, it comes with some steep tradeoffs.

You’re giving up on the notion of fine aim in favor of an outright beastly weapon. This thing will shred with the right Barrel, but it won’t be easy to control. So you’re going to want to play from a closer range and always be pushing the pace.

With the 5mw Laser Sight, there isn’t much of a need to actually aim down sights. Your recoil is going to be tough to handle to begin with, so firing from the hip will often be the easier choice.

You’ll be zooming through the map in no time with this setup.

No need to reduce flinch with this particular weapon since you’ll rarely be aiming down sights. Instead, opting for the simple Speed Tape Handle is the way to go. This will give a slight buff to your ADS speed without any downsides.

Make sure you’re running Gung-Ho in the third perk slot as well. This is a complete game-changer for SMG classes as you’ll always be on the move, running and gunning with every fight. This will help keep you ahead of the competition with seamless movement.
