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.

While no specific start time has been made public just yet, we know when the next big Warzone event will be kicking off. Expect to see your favorite personalities competing on Wednesday, October 21.

Given the unique format with this event, there’s a good chance it runs for quite a while. So expect a good few hours of action once it gets going. We’ve embedded the BoomTV stream below so you can catch the event as it goes live.

Rather than having players form their own teams for this event, things will be a little different. 16 “cracked” players will each be picked by 16 content creators to form every duo for the tournament.

This means that almost every duo could be playing together for the very first time as streamers choose their partners from the list of professionals. Once all duos are together, they’ll be paired up to square off in typical Quads action.

The exact point system is yet to be revealed, though the event will likely follow a familiar structure; eliminations will rack up points as will overall wins. The duo with more points at the end of each round will move on in the tournament bracket.
