Pro Call of Duty players set to add new attachment to gentlemen’s agreement

Professional Call of Duty players are set to add one of Black Ops 4’s most used attachments to their gentlemen’s agreement: Stock II for the Saug 9mm submachine gun. 

The Saug 9mm quickly established itself as the most popular submachine gun in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, with many players stating that it is the most powerful weapon in the game.

Popular because of its incredibly high rate of fire, players are able to kill their opponents quickly with this weapon, without giving up any mobility or speed due to the weapon’s submachine classification.

The Saug 9mm is widely considered to be the best submachine gun in the game.

It seems that Call of Duty pros intend to make some changes to the weapon, with many players like Seth ‘Scump’ Abner and Ian ‘Enable’ Wyatt discussing the adjustments while streaming on Thursday, January 24. Specifically, players want to ban an attachment that they feel makes the weapon too powerful compared to the other guns currently used in the competitive meta.

Chris ‘Parasite’ Duarte agrees with the sentiment, stating that he believes the Stock II attachment “needs a nerf or needs to go,” and saying that it allows players to jump shot with accuracy, strafe 70% quicker and enter the prone position seamlessly while firing.

When Brandon ‘Nelson’ McKinney said he thought that they should ban all overpowered weapons instead of an attachment from one, Parasite reiterated that the Saug is still good without Stock II, and claimed that while the attachment isn’t necessary in the game “it sure is incredible.”

The item is set to be added to the list of rules agreed upon by the pro players separate from the official Call of Duty World League ruleset. These are often called gentlemen’s agreements as the rules are not officially enforced, but it is considered to be poor behaviour if a player were to break them.

While discussions continue surrounding the attachment, so far no pro player has officially stated that the rule has been agreed upon, meaning it will be interesting to keep an eye on the classes of submachine gun players when the CWL Pro League kicks off on Monday, February 4.

Streamer frags out in Black Ops Cold War with Rockband guitar controller

Call of Duty players have been known to whip out some pretty outlandish controllers in years past, and now that trend has continued with Black Ops Cold War with one streaming using a Rockband guitar.

Twitch streamer TheStevieP decided to play the game’s zombies and even multiplayer mode with the absurd controller, but was actually seeing some success with it despite its obvious limitations.

While playing with a guitar may sound impossible, especially with a game as fast-paced as COD, TheStevieP found a button layout setup that gets the job done.

“Walk is down on the strum bar, walking backward is up on the strum bar,” he explained. “To look around, red is to the left, yellow is to the right, blue is up, orange is down. And green shoots.”

However, some of the drawbacks of playing with the guitar are that he doesn’t have a reload button or a grenade button that could get him into some serious trouble in the heat of a firefight.

“If I get a kill in multiplayer I’m going to laugh,” he chuckled. “The person who dies to me deserves to be laughed at.”

As it turns out, his remark was spot on, because just a little bit later, the streamer hopped into multiplayer to partake in some TDM on the infamous Miami map.

After struggling with four deaths to his name, TheStevieP ended up getting into an extremely awkward firefight on a stairway. After missing his first few shots and taking some damage, he managed to finally land a direct hit, eliminating his opponent.

“Yo!” he jumped up with his arms raised in victory.

As he let out a hardy belly laugh, the streamer did end up falling himself, but it was perfectly fine by him, who still couldn’t believe he managed to pull off the frag.

“Let’s go!” he beamed again with glee.

The clip taking from the stream ended up being posted to Reddit where it received a whopping 3.8K upvotes by users on the platform who were impressed with the play.

Black Ops Cold War is still very young so there is no telling what else streamers and content creators will try to up the ante in the bizarre controller department. As it stands though, this was one heck of a way to kick off the entertainment.
