Parasite lists 8 fixes Modern Warfare needs for competitive

Christopher ‘Parasite’ Duarte has revealed an eight-item list of issues he feels need to be addressed before the Call of Duty League kicks-off in January, 2020.

It’s almost one month since Modern Warfare landed on the shelves worldwide. Since then, Infinity Ward have had their work cut-out by fixing the plethora of bugs and in-game issues which have plagued players since launch. 

However, with the inaugural start to the Call of Duty League around the corner, there are still plenty of stumbling blocks for the developers to overcome. In a bid to make Infinity Ward’s job that much easier, Parasite has detailed exactly what needs to be fixed.

Activision.Modern Warfare will play host to the CDL throughout 2020.

After coming short in finding a home for this year’s CDL, Parasite has formed a stacked roster that will compete in the Challengers circuit throughout the competitive season. 

Nonetheless, the 2013 world champion’s passion for the franchise is undeniable. Given his long-term investment in the title, he posted an eight-point list of concerns on Twitter, for the attention of key figures over at Infinity Ward. 

Duarte prefaced his list of snags with: “Things we still need to fix after the last update (not including bugs) — even including a ninth ‘bonus’ snag to stress the importance of one particular issue. 

The infamous issue surrounding footsteps sits high on Parasite’s list of priorities, after multiple patches have failed to meet the expectations of the CoD community and pros alike.

Duarte’s list appears to point-out fundamental issues (i.e., spawns making the list twice, in an effort to emphasize the ongoing issue), right the way through to balancing issues (i.e., the Cold-Blooded perk being able to counter the newfound ability to see through smokes). 

Moreover, Parasite went to the liberty of tagging the likes of Ashton Williams and Joe Cecot in the post, hoping that they would pick up on his prioritized list.

This comes after Parasite called out Activision’s decision to provide all pro players with 15,000 pro points by default. The net result was Activision stripping the 15k Challenger Points from pros as of November 21. Parasite will be hoping is voice is heard yet again, given his position of influence. 

The CDL is set to kick-off in Minnesota on January 24 –26, where Parasite and co. will be hoping to open their Challengers campaign with a bang.

How to view your Black Ops Cold War stats on PC, PS5 & Xbox

Call of Duty is enjoyed by some of the most competitive gamers around and, of course, competitors want to analyze their performances. Fortunately, there are multiple ways to view your Black Ops Cold War stats, no matter your system of choice.

If you played Modern Warfare or Warzone, then chances are that you’re already somewhat familiar with checking your CoD statistics. Aside from the in-game client, using the website COD Tracker was a very popular way to check, and compare, your numbers when away from your console or PC.

That remains an option for Black Ops Cold War in 2020 and beyond, but players can also check their stats in-game and on the official Call of Duty app. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages, but they all help you paint a clearer picture of your performance.

Whether you simply want to track your progress as a player or compare yourself to the game’s best, we’ve broken the two ways, outside of the in-game client, that you can check your Black Ops Cold War statistics.

COD Tracker

COD Tracker gives you an overview of your stats with the options to dive deeper.

COD Tracker’s offering is likely the most thorough option around, as you are able to track a ton of statistics, filter by mode, map, and weapon while comparing yourself to global leaderboards. 

Like Warzone, you can even go back through many of your recent matches to analyze individual performances.

  1. Head to COD Tracker and enter either your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  2. Navigate to the Black Ops Cold War tag
  3. Check out how you stack up against the competition

Call of Duty Companion

The CoD Companion App is a nice alternative for people looking to check numbers on their phone.

The Call of Duty Companion app is a very easy way to access many of your statistics without turning on your PC or console. While it doesn’t have as much data as COD Tracker might give you (and rounds K/D a decimal sooner than Tracker), the UI is very intuitive, with pie charts and line graphs for your numbers and whatnot.

  1. Search “Call of Duty Companion” on your device’s app store or through their website
  2. Download and open
  3. Sign in with your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  4. Navigate to “Player,” then scroll to “Black Ops Cold War” instead of “Modern Warfare” from the drop-down menu

While BOCW’s in-game client may feel somewhat limited in its options for analyzing your performance and place on the leaderboards, these two options each provide a ton of information.

Both provide similar degrees of data with the principal differences coming in their presentation, so it’s really up to you which you prefer to use.
