OpTic Crimsix provides his best Black Ops 4 classes for competitive play

If you plan to play Black Ops 4 competitively, then your class load out is the first thing you need to make sure is on point, and thankfully OpTic’s Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter has explained exactly what he uses.

The two time world champion is reuniting with his long time teammate Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow on OpTic as the organization looks to get back to winning ways after a tough WWII season.

Fellow two time world champion Bryan ‘Apathy’ Zhelyazkov and Advanced Warfare world champion Dillon ‘Attach’ Price also showed off their classes recently, but both are primarily faster SMG players, so Crimsix’s load out may differ slightly.

For this season in Black Ops 4, Crimsix will be determined to wash off the disappointment of the top 24 placement at the 2017 World Championship, and so has immediately began competitive practice following the game’s release on October 12, alongside his new teammates.

Currently, players can really only practice in Search and Destroy tournaments and wager matches, with the official CWL ruleset not released, so it is worth bearing in mind that these classes are for a specific game mode for the time being.

His perks remain the same throughout, with Flak Jacket, Dexterity and Dead Silence on every class except one, with Flack Jacket swapped out for Lightweight on the SAUG (SMG) class.

As gun balance updates and other changes inevitably come in to Black Ops 4 over the course of the next few months, some of these class selections will change.

These load outs are tailored specifically to Search and Destroy, but the weapon selection is definitely the best that Black Ops 4 has to offer, and line up with both Apathy and Attach’s weapon choices.

When professional teams begin to scrim respawn game modes like hardpoint, there should be more details on what you should be running in these modes too, but for now, while SnD is king, look no further than Crim’s setup.

Best Warzone kills against cheaters exploiting the Stim glitch

Taking matters into their own hands, some of Call of Duty: Warzone’s bravest players have, quite literally, gone out of their way to punish cheating exploiters who abuse the notorious Stim glitch.

As most Warzone fans have become familiar with by now, there is an unlimited Stim Shot glitch that pops into existence, gets patched out, and then returns every once in a while. The bug allows you to use an infinite amount of Stim Shots, enabling players to remain in the gas indefinitely and secure easy wins while those who play fairly die to the final circles.

Unfortunately, as time passes, more and more exploiters have become aware of the glitch and prone to abusing it. Fortunately, more and more players with competitive integrity have become aware of those exploiters and prone to exacting justice by punishing them.

While few things are more satisfying than a high-kill Warzone victory, one such thing is the cathartic sensation of a cheater being killed and therefore robbed of their illegitimate win. Highlighted by one of Warzone’s very best, Liam ‘Jukeyz’ James, here are the best kills against Stim glitch exploiters.

Unwilling to be denied their 100-kill victory, Jukeyz and his team got set up with self-revives, gas masks, and a UAV to go seek out and eliminate the exploiter in their lobby. Driving directly into the toxic gas, Jukeyz is able to hop out (as his driver is downed by the green cloud) and delete the prone cheater.

And Jukeyz isn’t alone in obliterating these exploiters. Reddit’s ‘thebigeasy31’ decimated the hubris of one such exploiter, who brashly thought they could start Stim glitching earlier in the game with a Most Wanted contact on his head. Instead, bigeasy gave him a bullet to the head.

And last, but certainly not least, Reddit’s ‘Millertime166’ took it upon themself to pull off a one-man vigilante act by seeking out a Stim glitcher on Rebirth Island. Heading into the gas, copping a Gas Mask, and getting into a vehicle, Millertime used their last remaining HP to kill off a silly cheater who was hidden behind a wall.

While the Stim glitch was supposed to have been removed during the January 13 patch, some believe it persists, albeit in a more limited fashion. Nevertheless, most expect it could possibly make a return at some point.

If it does come back, these players prove that the game’s developers are not the only ones who can counteract cheaters. Like those who killed off exploiters who were abusing the Promenade truck glitch, Verdansk’s finest have begun carrying out their own brand of justice.
