UYU’s announcement of a roster change for the Call of Duty pro team has created a heavy stir of controversy as several prominent pro players have publicly lashed out at the org.

On January 30, UYU announced that Anthony ‘Methodz’ Zinni, their newly acquired substitute for CWL Pro League, was to be promoted to the starting team, trading places with Tristan ‘Spoof’ Green.

This immediately garnered a negative reaction from the community since the news had come as a total surprise to Spoof, who will be losing his status as a pro player without having played a single pro match. 

Some of the biggest names in the scene were quick to take shots at the org, calling them unfaithful and bashing them for turning their backs on a player who had been a big reason why the team had qualified for the Pro League in the first place.

Things got even messier when Spoof revealed that the players’ had decided to pick up Parasite as their substitute, not Methodz, but the organization’s higher-ups overruled that decision and went with the latter.

This decision was openly questioned by Team Envy’s Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price, who surmised that the org had ulterior motives to making this move.

Red Reserve player Trei ‘Zer0’ Morris was not very kind in his assessment of UYU, calling it a “dodgy place to be.”

He also was very concerned about the lack of job security for competitive CoD players, claiming that many organizations will look to profit from players then leave them in the dust. 

OpTic Gaming’s Seth ‘Scump’ Abner responded to Zer0’s tweet with a prediction that a roster change this early would only spell doom for everyone else that’s currently on the UYU roster. 

Scump’s OpTic teammate Thomas ‘TJHaLy’ Haly also responded to Zer0, and expressed his agreement by using a classic British slang that means “dodgy.”

Parasite, the player who was supposedly in line to join UYU as their Pro League substitute, had a long series of tweets reacting to the whole fiasco. 

Here are other reactions from some of the biggest names in the competitive CoD community, virtually all of whom were very displeased with UYU’s decision.

The QBZ-83 is may not be as strong or as accurate as the AK-47, but its superior mobility and handling make it a great pick. Here all the perks, attachments, and equipment you need to push this assault rifle to its peak. 

Whether you’re looking to level up every gun to grab those ultra-rare camos or just wanting to give the QBZ-83 a go, then you’ll want to use this loadout. This assault rifle is often overlooked by a lot of players and it’s currently one of the least used guns in the assault rifle category. However, if you’re willing to put in the effort into learning the QBZ, you’ll find that it is a pretty well-round rifle. 

This loadout boosts the QBZ-83’s already great speed, but also increases the gun’s accuracy and firepower. If you’re after an AR that can go toe to toe with the game’s SMGs, then look no further. In order to help you get the most out of the QBZ-83, we’ve put together a reliable loadout you can use to get those deadly Scorestreaks.

Best QBZ-83 loadout for Black Ops Cold War

The recent FFAR 1 and M16 nerfs have made the QBZ-83 a more viable option.
  • Muzzle: Infantry Compensator 
  • Barrel: 15.5” Reinforced Heavy
  • Underbarrel:Foregrip
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap 
  • Stock: Raider Stock

Secondary

  • 1911

Throwables

  • Stimshot
  • Semtex
  • Field Mic

Perks

  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket + Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Assassin + Scavenger 
  • Perk 3: Ninja + Ghost

Wildcard

  • Perk Greed

Due to the QBZ-83 having a very clear default sight, we’ve saved the attachment slot to make a much more comfy build. The Infantry Compensator and Foregrip help control both the gun’s horizontal and vertical recoil. This enables you to remain accurate at medium to long ranges. 

Adding to this is the 15.5” Heavy. Not only does this attachment increase the AR’s bullet velocity by a significant 40%, but it also increases the gun’s damage range by 100%. Whether you’re planning to play on the game’s bigger maps or just wanting to increase your kill potential, then the Reinforced Heavy is a must. 

Rounding things off at the bottom, is the Airborne Elastic Wrap and Raider Stock. These attachments increase ADS and sprint to fire time, allowing you to aggressively rush your foes without having to worry about sluggish performance. 

In terms of equipment, the standard Stimshot, Semtex, and Field Mic have been chosen. These items will keep you on your feet and enable you to get the drop on any potential targets.

The QBZ-83’s speed and firepower makes for some blisteringly fast kills.

This loadout uses Perk Greed, which allows players to take six perks. The combination of Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask will keep you safe from any explosives and noxious gas. These perks are important for most loadouts, but especially hyper-aggressive ones that prefer the run and gun approach to combat.

Meanwhile, Assassin reveals high priority targets and enables you to get the drop on any enemies who are on killstreaks. Scavenger also replenishes the QBZ-83’s ammo from fallen players, so you’ll never have to hunt for another gun when your ammo is low. 

Lastly, Ghost and Ninja keep your movements hidden from prying eyes and enable you to go for those sneaky flanks. After all, this loadout favors both close to mid-range firefights, so don’t be afraid to get into the very thick of a fight.
