After months of anticipation, Treyarch and Raven Software officially unveiled the next entry in the Call of Duty franchise, Black Ops Cold War, and the reveal was mostly met with praise from professional CDL players.

After remaining completely silent for months on end, publisher Activision and developers Treyarch finally pulled back the curtains on Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War during the first-ever live event within Warzone.

Black Ops Cold War’s trailer received a mostly positive reception, with many in the community praising the game for its impressive visuals and interesting setting, as well as the return of classic characters like Woods, Mason, and Hudson.

Beyond the casual fanbase, however, the professional community was also watching as well, and many Call of Duty League professional players posted their reactions about the series’ next installment.

Needless to say, while pro players do enjoy many of the casual aspects of Call of Duty games, their main focus and priority is on the competitive side.

While nothing about the multiplayer was announced in this August 26 reveal, it still gave the chance for CDL stars to get a feel of what to expect when Black Ops Cold War drops on November 13.

Here are the reactions from some of the pro scene’s biggest stars, including the likes of the Huntsmen’s Scump, FaZe’s aBeZy, OpTic Gaming’s Dashy, and more.

Of course, as mentioned above, these reactions were only to the first trailer of the game. With the full multiplayer reveal set to take place on September 9, that’s when a lot of these pro players will get a good look at what they’re going to competing with when the second season of the Call of Duty League kicks off.

There are a lot of announcements still to be made, especially when it comes to the competitive side of Black Ops Cold War, and despite all these positive initial thoughts, these players have their own wishlists for what they want in the 2020 title.

For example, the aforementioned Scump layed out what he thinks will make BOCW the “perfect” CoD, one of which is a return to 4v4, which a lot of his league-mates have also expressed. Competitive Call of Duty officially transitioned to a 5v5 format in 2018 when Black Ops 4 was announced, but that decision has since been met with mixed reviews, at best.

NRGScump wants Black Ops Cold War to have a 4v4 competitive format, which has been echoed by other players as well.

All in all, given the early positive reactions to their game, it seems like Treyarch might have another hit on their hands. With Modern Warfare not being thought of highly by the competitive player-base, especially at the professional level, it may not take much to get the support of the pros this time around.

How to get .50 GS pistol in Call of Duty Mobile

A new pistol, the .50 GS, is now available in CoD Mobile – and you don’t have to go through a lucky draw for one. No, you can get it for free through a series of challenges. 

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game have flooded it with new content. Be it a new map, a new event, character, perk, or weapon, there has been plenty for fans to get their teeth stuck into.

Sometimes though, in the case of weapons especially, some of this new content is locked behind lucky draws – so you’ve got to pony up some cash if you really want something. 

In the case of the new .50 GS pistol, which is pretty much just the Desert Eagle, the lucky draw isn’t something you need to worry about. Instead, you just need to complete a series of challenges.

The Going Dark theme is new for CoD Mobile Season 12.

CoD Mobile .50 GS handgun Small Arms challenges

There are seven challenges you need to complete come from the Small Arms seasonal event to get the new handgun, each getting slightly more challenging than the last. 

For example, you kick off with needing to get five melee kills, before progressing to normal pistol kills. In the end, you’ll also need 20 headshots with pistols, which isn’t an easy feat for any player, but its not impossible.

The full list of challenges can be found below: 

  1. Kill 5 enemies with Melee Attacks.
  2. Kill 10 enemies with Pistols in MP matches.
  3. Kill 10 Enemies with Quick Fix perk equipped.
  4. Kill 20 Enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any laser.
  5. Kill 20 enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any 3 attachments.
  6. Earn Back Stabber Medal 3 times.
  7. Kill 20 Enemies with Headshots using any Pistol.

However, you shouldn’t get any ideas about completing the challenges in any random order. 

They need to be done in the order they’re set. This is a bit of a pain, but, at least it gives you something to target in each match.
