Deep in the CWL Anaheim Losers bracket, underdogs Gen.G managed to bring down the Greenwall in an stunning 3-2 series on June 16 to propel them into the Grand Finals against 100 Thieves.

The CWL 2019 circuit is winding down as the last open event has been giving fans some of the best Call of Duty gameplay from multiple orgs that they’ve seen all year.

Gen.G had just been wiped by 100 Thieves in the Winners Finals before the match. While people were expecting a similar fate against OpTic Gaming, Gen.G had another thing in mind heading into the hyped matchup.

Regardless of popular predictions, the team in Gold and Black were looking to repeat what they had done to OpTic at Fort Worth when they eliminated them in the second round of the Losers Bracket with a 3-2 margin.

OpTic came out of the gates firing with a dominating win on Frequency Hardpoint that ended with a quick 250-130 finish.

But Gen.G showed exactly why they’re now in the Grand Finals by winning Hacienda Search and Destroy as well as Frequency Control, against an invigorated OpTic squad.

CWL TwitchThe Losers Finals was a test of strength for Gen.G as they hold on against OpTic.

Gen.G let OpTic advance their lead on Hardpoint all the way up to 247, before making their push to close the gap. It looked like their patience was about to be well rewarded as they were a stone’s throw away from clinching the map with 243.

But OpTic were able to hold the line, closing out the map to tie up the series 2-2, and pushing it to a fifth and final map on Frequency Search and Destroy.

Since CWL London, OpTic was 8-0 on the map after their clincher against FaZe Clan in the Losers Semis, but the streak stopped there as Gen.G proved to be too much for the Greenwall to handle.

CWL TwitchThe Grand Finals with 100 Thieves and Gen.G has been booked.

Search and Destroy couldn’t have been closer. In a big round down 1-2, Gen.G had to rely on impeccable timing to pull out a 2v1 clutch. That round eventually sparked a winning run as Gen.G were able to close the series, after thwarting OpTic’s late-game heroics.

Gen.G once against eliminated OpTic to deny them a chance at a Losers championship run, and it will be a while before OpTic get another opportunity to redeem the crushing loss.

Now Gen.G are primed for a quick rematch against 100 Thieves in the CWL Anaheim Grand Finals for the lion’s share of $325,000.

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.
