Former professional player Anthony “NAMELESS” Wheeler has announced two of the guests for a brand new podcast, inviting on former pro player Adam “KiLLa” Sloss.

NAMELESS’ recently started his ‘CoD Cast’ a weekly podcast which he began shortly before his official stepping down from competing, typically hosting current pro players.

Most often it is current professional players discussing current issues and tournaments in relating to the CWL, or on occasion casters and analysts such as Joe “MerK” Deluca and Clint “Maven” Evans.

Last week’s episode saw the entire new OpTic Gaming Call of Duty roster sit down with NAMELESS live from the MLG apartments in Columbus, as the team were competing in their Division B matches of the CWL Pro League.

For next week though, NAMELESS is starting a new separate podcast inviting on the Sloss brothers; former professional and all round legendary CoD player Adam “KiLLa” Sloss, and his brother. 

NAMELESS has clarified that this is an entirely separate podcast, although details of what he has in store for fans are still relatively sparse.

KiLLa, despite no longer competing professionally, is still a very active member in the CoD community, and is vocal about a number of issues.

KiLLa’s brother is also a keen member of the community, and the pair should make for some very intriguing conversations about the current landscape of the competitive scene.

As for other guests, NAMELESS may look to keep the trend going by inviting other former pro’s on to speak, but we can expect more announcements closer the the show itself.

NAMELESS hasn’t revealed the date yet either, but you can keep up with him via Twitter, and catch him live via his Twitch Channel.

Call of Duty players have uncovered an unusual field-of-view setting in Warzone, claiming that weapons such as the CR-AMAX seem to have less visual recoil when it is toggled.

The weapon meta is continuing to shift in Warzone as more changes are released in Season 6, giving players plenty of unique weapons and playstyle to try in the battle royale.

Popular YouTuber Swagg was one of the latest to reveal a Season 6 loadout for Warzone but claimed there was also a “secret” setting that was helping him to rack up more kills in-game.

CoD players like Swagg have claimed that Warzone’s FOV settings can affect recoil in-game.

While the CR-56 AMAX, which was featured as the Galil in past CoD titles, has been a solid weapon since its release, there are, apparently, some field-of-view settings that Warzone players can change to make the gun easier to use.

In his October 24 upload, Swagg revealed that having the “Affected FOV” setting enabled makes it seem as if the AMAX has little to no recoil. This is opposed to the default Independent FOV setting.

“Affected FOV on PC makes guns feel like they don’t have recoil,” Swagg revealed, in his Warzone gameplay, “[it’s the] reason why I use Amax now.”

The AMAX does not usually stand out above other Assault Rifles in its class, but it still has one of the highest base stats when it comes to damage per second (DPS), meaning that less recoil would make this quite a strong choice in the current meta.

While the weapon, with these affected FOV settings, appears to move less compared to CR-56 AMAX gameplay for console players, it is unclear whether or not it actually has a major effect on the gun.

However, it seemed to be working quite well for Swagg, as he highlighted just how strong it could be, managing to pick up plenty of kills in his Warzone match with fellow content creator booya.

Another CoD YouTuber Webzy has previously highlighted the difference in recoil between the Affected and Independent settings, echoing the sentiment of the FaZe member and claiming it was actually easier to hit shots with it enabled.

Infinity Ward is regularly coming out with fixes for any bugs found in-game but it appears as if this FOV setting was intended to be a feature, making it unclear whether or not this will be patched.
