OpTic Gaming’s Call of Duty roster is loaded with talent and one player showed off a bit of what’s to come this season with an amazing killstreak during a match on stream.

OpTic Gaming tweeted a clip of Brandon ‘Dashy’ Otell absolutely slaying with a sniper in a game of Hardpoint in Black Ops 4.

The clip showed Dashy being very efficient with his shots, getting five kills with five shots in under 16 seconds.

The 19-year-old Assault Rifle Specialist opened up the killing spree with an aggressive jump-scope out into the open and immediately added another in the same fashion.

Dashy was in the middle of repositioning when an opposing player came around the corner, forcing Dashy to line up and execute a clutch quick-scope from across the battlefield.

The engagement left the Canadian-born talent in the open and was instantly pressured with enemy fire from behind. Dashy has to do a 180-degree turn to line up another shot and nail a second quick-scope from across the way.

At this point, Dashy seemed pretty comfy out in the open with a blood-filled screen and only one bullet in the clip, so he healed up and got one more kill before being forced inside to reload.

Along with fellow newcomer Thomas ‘TJHaLy’ Haly, Dashy will be joined by Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter, Seth ‘Scump’ Abner, and Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow for the upcoming season.

OpTic Gaming will want this Dashy to show up on stage for the next event in the CWL in Las Vegas from December 7th-9th, 2018.

OpTic were drawn into group D alongside big name-teams in G2 Esports and Splyce with two other teams that have yet to be decided.

“Broken” Warzone skin is too hard to see & players aren’t happy about it

Call of Duty: Warzone’s Season 5 Roze “Rook” operator is maddening players, as the small, dark silhouette is sometimes impossible to detect before getting killed.

Verdansk is a diverse environment and Modern Warfare’s operators are fittingly blessed with a varied assortment of camouflages. With the map spanning green, forested areas, dry, muted plains, and dark, indoor rooms, there is a lot of different scenery to keep track of.

Within the map’s obscured nooks and crannies, one Season 5 operator skin has become a particular nuisance for players. Upon hitting Tier 100 on the preceding season’s Battle Pass, the Roze “Rook” skin was unlocked, offering fans a jet-black, sleek character to rock across Modern Warfare’s multiplayer and accompanying battle royale.

With the prevalence of close-quarters combat in dimly lit indoor spaces, players have begun pointing out just how impossible it is to see Roze in the game.

Roze’s Rook skin is easy to see in the light, but practically invisible in the dark.

In a screenshot shown by ‘bleedblue_knetic’ on Reddit, there appears to be an empty cell in the subterranean jails located below the Prison POI. But their teammate, ‘Deadalus,’ is highlighted as being right behind the cell’s bars. 

Even knowing someone is technically there, it is practically impossible to discern a character model behind the partial obstructions.

I’ve never really seen anyone talk about it, but does anyone else think Roze skin is not okay? from CODWarzone

As such, bleedblue_knetic’s post is titled simply: “I’ve never really seen anyone talk about it, but does anyone else think Roze skin is not okay?” In response, the vast majority of commenters agreed that this skin is an issue and is getting widely used by sweaty players because of how difficult it is to see in Warzone’s darker environments.

One commenter summed it up succinctly: “It’s one of the most broken skins in the game.”

Another Redditor, ‘OJbeforethebadstuff,’ also replied with his own example of the Rook skin’s seeming invisibility. While their video settings appear to lack more brightness than necessary, it still demonstrates just how deadly Roze’s camouflage can be.

 

As seen in the video, the screen is darker than most players’ displays, but, nonetheless, the Roze that kills him is frankly invisible. It isn’t until you watch the kill cam that you realize there was a person actually standing there amongst the tables, waiting to secure an easy elimination.

Usually, hacking is raised as a possibility when you’re killed by someone you can’t see. But, in this case, it appears that the Rook skin is simply svelte and dark enough to blend into indoor backgrounds perfectly.

Her hitbox isn’t technically smaller than others’ and she does appear in an obvious contrast when in bright environments, but so much of Warzone is played in dimmed locations that this is as meta a skin as the game has seen. Infinity Ward has yet to respond to complaints and it remains to be seen if some of the game’s niche visibility issues can be resolved.
