OpTic Gaming‘s Seth ‘Scump’ Abner might be a Call of Duty pro, but that doesn’t mean he has to like every single game the series comes out with – in fact, he dislikes the last three.

Infinity Ward officially unveiled Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on May 30 by dropping a reveal trailer to its Twitter and YouTube pages, and revealed a release date of October 25.

The company has since announced more features, such as cross-platform play between Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC players, several playable characters such as an Arab soldier, and free content replacing the need for a season pass.

While the next installment in the series looks promising, pro player Scump put Infinity War to shame with one single Twitter post, quote-tweeting the Modern Warfare trailer, saying, “Hoping it doesn’t turn out like the past 3 titles.”

He didn’t explain why he doesn’t like the last three Call of Duty games, but his fans lapped up the tweet like hungry dogs, finding it absolutely hilarious.

Scump has been signed to OpTic for almost the entirety of his career, and is one of the top Call of Duty pro players with 27 championship wins. 

However, despite his success over the years, he’s never been shy about expressing his dislike about certain CoD games, including how he trashed Infinite Warfare not too long after winning the 2017 CWL Championship.

Modern Warfare – Everything we know so far

As outlined above, the release date is set for October 25, ringing out the end of the year with a bang for fans of the series.

It’s the second Call of Duty game in a row to be released in October, following in Black Ops 4’s footsteps.

Not much was said about the multiplayer, but we do know that the game will be getting a whole new progression system that will completely switch up the series’ current meta, and Operators could be a possible replacement for Specialists.

The campaign is set to be the most controversial to date, taking heavy inspiration from Modern Warfare 2’s ‘No Russian’ mission, in which the player helps massacre innocents in a Moscow airport.

Fastest way to unlock Blue Dot reticle in Warzone & Modern Warfare

The Blue Dot reticle has fast become one of the most popular in Warzone and Modern Warfare, with players claiming it helps with their aim and accuracy when engaging in gunfights.

The Blue Dot has seen a massive uptick in use, especially as it becomes more popular among Warzone content creators who are constantly seeking new ways to maximize their ability in their gameplay.

This is somewhat similar to Infinite Warfare, another Infinity Ward game, in which pro players would use the Blue Dot to get a bit of a better view on their enemies and increase their chances in gunfights.

That said, it’s not easy to unlock, and is a bit of a grind, so be prepared to spend a good amount of time trying to get it.

Holo Sights have become increasingly popular thanks to the Blue Dot.

How to unlock the Blue Dot reticle for Holo sights

There are exactly nine tasks that have to be completed to unlock the reticle, and in a certain order, so it’s guaranteed to take up a solid wedge of time, especially if you’re exclusively playing Warzone.

Let’s take a look at the challenges you have to complete to unlock the Blue Dot for holographic sights:

  • Get 200 Kills using the Corp Combat Holo Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Corp Combat Holo Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the APX5 Holographic Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the APX5 Holographic Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the PBX Holo 7 Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the PBX Holo 7 Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using any Holo Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using any Holo Sight
  • Get 3 kills without dying 150 times using any Holo Sight

These have to be done in this order, as completing each challenge unlocks the next, and each one will also unlock a new reticle as it builds up to the big one.

This isn’t a quick unlock, so expect to sink a lot of time in.

How to unlock the Blue Dot reticle for Reflex sights

The process for unlocking Blue Dot on Holo sights is fairly similar, though there is an additional challenge thrown in there that will make the process take even longer.

Here’s what you’ve got to do:

  • Get 200 Kills using the Operator Reflex Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Operator Reflex Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the Aim-Op Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Aim-Op Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the Viper Reflex Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Viper Reflex Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using any Monocle Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Monocle Sight
  • Get 3 kills without dying 150 times using any Reflex Sight
  • Get 500 kills using any Reflex Optic

Fastest way to unlock Blue Dot

Activision
Season 6 has brought a bunch of new content, but we’re also seeing a lot of Blue Dot reticles on the battlefield.

Now you know how to do it, you’ll want to know the quickest way to unlock the reticle, too. While we can find ways to minimize how much time you have to spend grinding, it’s worth noting that this really is a grind, and will require a lot of time spent picking up the kills necessary.

We recommend playing in Shipment 24/7 or Shoot the Ship playlists in Modern Warfare multiplayer if possible, especially as with Shipment you can simply slap the Holo sight onto a shotgun or SMG and hipfire at the enemies, racking up kills as you go without being held back by aiming down the enhanced-magnification sights.

When attempting to get headshots, your safest option would probably be using a single-fire weapon like the FAL and aiming for the head — for this, you might be best off heading into the Hardcore playlists.

That said, there are plenty of ways to unlock Blue Dot, and as long as you keep up with the challenges, you should be able to unlock them through any method, though some processes may take longer than the ones we’ve laid out above.
