OpTic’s Crimsix hits incredible snipe in Black Ops 4 while wearing goggles

OpTic Gaming’s Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter is known for accomplishing many things in his illustrious Call of Duty pro career, and now hitting a triple-collateral snipe while wearing snowboarding goggles can be added to that list. 

The 33x tournament champion decided we was feeling a bit chilly today so he pulled out a pair of snowboarding goggles and loaded into a public match on Black Ops 4.

Choosing a class with a sniper rifle and the Ruin Specialist, his plan was to start off the game with an insane trick-shot using the Grapple Gun.

His initial attempt failed, however, as we was able to get to the position he wanted but could not hit the shot and landed awkwardly in the middle of the map. 

However, he was able to recover spectacularly and managed to eliminate three enemy players with a single shot of his sniper rifle, ironically making a better play that what he had first intended.

It’s hard not to laugh at this whole sequence of events, especially when Crimsix got very excited and started yelling “What the fuck?! What?! What the hell was that?!”

He tweeted it out with maybe the best and most appropriate caption for the clip, which read: “Shredding on and off the mountain.”

The shot was so good that even popular CoD YouTuber and prominent sniper Pamaj gave it his blessing and called it “fucking clean” and “nasty.”

Fans of Crimsix and OpTic Gaming will love to see the pro player enjoying himself while playing Call of Duty once again. 

The past two years have not been the greatest for Crim in terms of content creation, and the fact that he’s streaming a lot more in Black Ops 4 is a huge positive.

Warzone FOV setting on PC can reduce visual recoil on weapons

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.
