Rise Nation’s TJHaLy Bets $1000 On Himself Winning CoD Champs With Echo Fox’s Temp

Rise Nation player Thomas “TJHaLy” Haly has placed a wager of $1000 with fellow pro Donovan “Temp” Laroda that he will win the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championship.

During a live stream, the pair argued over predictions on TJHaLy’s personal performance at the CWL Championship, which takes place on August 15 – 19.

Echo Fox player Temp jokingly suggested TJHaLy will have a 0.7 kill/death ratio at the event, which prompted the pair to put their money where their mouth is.

TJ: “I will bet any amount, please bet me any amount”, Temp: “alright, a rack – a rack that you don’t win champs.”

TJHaLy’s Rise Nation team are going into the event as favorites in most people’s predictions, despite losing Stage Two playoffs in the grand final vs Team Kaliber.

Throughout the WWII season, Rise Nation have certainly been the most consistent team, and TJ, Loony and Gunless are the winningest players this season in terms of prize money.

They are tied with Team Kaliber for total championships, with three wins a piece. But many still point to Rise as having the best overall player in Pierce “Gunless” Hillman, and the best Assault Rifle player in Austin “SlasheR” Liddicoat.

Temp though clearly feels like TJHaLy might be the weak link in the Rise Nation roster, despite his stellar performances in the fast, aggressive SMG role.

There are certainly a number of teams that could upset Rise Nation, so Temp has a fair wager on his hands. However given the consistency of Rise, TJHaLy has plenty of reasons to feel confident.

If TJ does win, his wager with Temp would be a drop in ocean compared to his prize winnings overall. As for Temp, he’ll want to ensure he can place as high as possible with his Echo Fox squad, but him not winning champs isn’t part of the wager, it seems.

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


  • 1911


  • Stimshot
  • Semtex
  • Field Mic


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


  • 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.
