Ninja roasts OpTic Scump over CoD tournament wins during Blackout beta

Twitch star Tyler “Ninja” Blevins teamed up with former pro CoD players Matt “Nadeshot” Haag, Tyler “TeePee” Polchow and current professional Seth “Scump” Abner on the PC Blackout beta – and was all too aware of the latter’s recent tournament wins drought.

Prior to the 2018 CWL Season, Scump had won at least one tournament in every season of competitive Call of Duty, since he began competing, but his run came to and end during CoD: WWII.

Ninja, a former professional Halo player himself, has apparently been keeping up with events in competitive CoD, and hilariously roasted the OpTic Gaming star on his recent dip in tournament form.

After Scump completely missed a Rick & Morty reference (one of Ninja’s favorite shows it seems), he entered Morty’s voice to call Scump “that washed up Ginger”, before switching to a Rick impression:

“Yeh Morty, you know what I’m saying – I can’t remember the last time he won a tournament.”

Ninja was sure to make clear that he was only saying it in jest, but Scump said “it’s all motivation for next year”, as competitive Call of Duty turns its attention to Black Ops 4.

The OpTic Gaming roster for the upcoming season may not be completely announced yet, but we do know for sure that both Scump and long time teammate Ian “Crimsix” Porter will be staying with the organization.

The first event of the year is set to take place on December 7-9, at CWL Vegas, but before that, Ninja himself will have the opportunity to win a Black Ops 4 tournament, as he is one of the captains at the Doritos Bowl tournament.

Best Bullfrog loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Bullfrog is capable of unleashing plenty of highly-damaging rounds in a matter of seconds. While it isn’t as potent as the pre-patch MP5, it’s still a great SMG for those that enjoy the run and gun playstyle. 

With the MP5 taking a significant hit to both its damage and range, many Black Ops Cold War players are now trying to find a worthy replacement. The Milano and AK-74u have been dominating the current SMG bracket, but a lot of players are starting to see just how lethal the Bullfrog can be. This weapon is the last to unlock in the game’s SMG category and while it can take a number of hours to obtain, it’s well worth the grind. 

Whether you prefer to aggressively flank your foes or just want a gun you can rely on in close-quarter fights, the Bullfrog is always a good option. In order to help you get the most out of the Bullfrog, we’ve put together a loadout that maximizes all this gun’s strengths.

The Bullfrog SMG is certainly no MP5, but it’s still a decent pick.

Here’s the best attachments you can use on your Bullfrog in Black Ops Cold War:

  • Optic: Microflex LED
  • Muzzle: Spetsnaz Compensator
  • Barrel: 7.4” Task Force
  • Body: Steady Aim Laser
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Magazine: VDV 85 RND Fast Mag
  • Handle: Gru Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock

Black Ops Cold War’s maps offer plenty of opportunities for players to best their opponents in close-quarters combat, especially now that Nuketown has made its highly anticipated return. This Gunfighter loadout aims to bolster every aspect of the gun, making it more stable and deadly than ever before. 

First up is the Microflex LED. This optic offers excellent clarity thanks to its unobtrusive design, while the 1.25x zoom makes it perfect for spotting out close to mid-range targets. The Bullfrog does have some pretty strong vertical recoil, so the Spetsnaz Compensator and Spetsnaz Grip have been utilized. 

Even with these attachments, you’ll still need to pull down on your mouse/analog stick to control the bullet spread during mid-range firefights. However, the increased damage range/bullet velocity from the 7.4” Task Force does make it more viable outside of the usual SMG range. 

Of course, it’s still often best to avoid any areas that have particularly big sightlines. Instead, focus on flanking and use the Bullfrog’s great mobility to aggressively rush your enemies.

The Bullfrog is capable of some pretty quick kill times.

The Steady Aim Laser, KGB Skeletal Stock, and Gru Elastic Wrap allow you to be more reactive in your playstyle. Not only do these speed-enhancing attachments give you increased hip fire accuracy and sprint to fire time, they also bolster your ADS time. 

These attachments are the bread and butter of any good SMG class, so you want to use them if you wish to pull off those all-important flanks. Lastly, the VDV 85 RND Fast Mag gives you a huge amount of ammo to melt multiple foes with. 

Whether your aim isn’t as accurate as it used to be or you just want to crack that reload habit, then be sure to equip this magazine. Even if you do find yourself constantly reloading after every shot, the Bullfrog’s reload animation is incredibly fast. 

So there you have it, a well balanced Bullfrog loadout that you can use to wreak havoc across Black Ops Cold War’s smaller maps. If you want to keep updated with all the latest Call of Duty news and updates, then follow us over on @DexertoIntel.
