North America pro Call of Duty team OpTic Gaming have officially qualified for the CWL Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.

The team becomes the second from Division B to clinch a postseason spot, with UNILAD Esports having claimed a berth earlier on July 17.

Coming into Day One of the eight and final week of the Pro League, OpTic had an 8-3 record and were tied with Rise Nation for first place in Division B.

With a match against that very same Rise team to wrap up the day, OpTic knew that a victory would not only give them a Playoff berth, but also create some separation in the quest for the top overall seed.

The match was as intense as expected, as Optic pulled through in the close Game One Hardpoint 250-236. Rise answered back with a 6-4 win on Valkyrie SnD, but fell behind again when OpTic dominated Flak Tower CTF 4-0.

OpTic would win the next Hardpoint 250-206 to grab the 3-1 victory as they clinched their Playoff spot and took over the top overall seed for the time being.

OpTic will now have two more matches, against UNILAD and Luminosity respectively, to try and clinch that top overall seed in Division B.

However, they will at least be rest assured that they will be one of eight teams in the Playoffs, where $500,000 in total prizes will be up for grabs.

With Black Ops Cold War just two weeks away from being officially released, Activision and Treyarch have officially unveiled all the PC requirements and recommended specs a fan could dream for, including what you’ll need if you want to run the game on high settings.

Black Ops Cold War is almost here and fans are starting to get hyped for the first-person shooter. With only two weeks left until the game’s official launch, most fans have decided if they are going to be picking it up or if they’re going to be skipping out on this year’s entry.

Up until this point, however, neither Activision or Treyarch given a ton of info about the PC version of the game. That’s now changed as the required and recommended specs have officially been unveiled, as well was the specs you’ll need in order run it on other types of settings.

Black Ops Cold War minimum PC specs

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit or Windows 10 64-bit or higher
  • CPU: Intel Core I3-4340 or AMD FX-6300
  • RAM: 8GB
  • HDD: 50GB for MP only, 175GB for all game modes
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce GTX 670/Geforce GTX 1650/Radeon HD 7950

Black Ops Cold War recommended PC specs

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core I5-2500K or AMD Ryzen R5 1600X
  • RAM: 12GB
  • HDD: 175GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce GTX 970/GTX 1660 Super or Radeon R9 390/AMD RX 580

Black Ops Cold War recommended PC specs with ray-tracing

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel I7-8700K or AMD Ryzen 1800X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD: 175GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce RTX 3070
Activision
Activision released a handy graphic to explain to PC players what they’ll need.

Black Ops Cold War competitive PC specs

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel I7-8700K or AMD Ryzen 1800X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD: 175GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080/RTX 3070 or Radeon RX Vega64 graphics

Black Ops Cold War Ultra RTX PC specs

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel I9-9900K or AMD Ryzen 3700X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • HDD: 250GB
  • Video: Nvidia Geforce RTX 3080

As expected, if you want to run the game on extremely high settings, you’re going to need the PC to match it. That being said, the required specs are better than what was required in the beta, with the full game only requiring an I3 processor while the pre-release version needed an I5.

This, however, shouldn’t be surprise, as full versions of games are almost always more optimized than their pre-release counterparts. That being said, it’ll be interesting to see how bad the low-settings PC version looks once it’s live. Here’s hoping that it won’t be too bad.
