In preparation for CWL Vegas on December 7, OpTic Gaming has been holding boot camps with other CoD teams, but it looks like this might be a one-time deal.

While professional teams frequently scrim one another throughout the season, OpTic took it a step further by inviting eUnited to the organization’s headquarters in Texas for a boot camp before CWL Vegas.

Any other teams hoping to get some boot camp time in with OpTic look to be out of luck, though, as Seth ‘Scump’ Abner said the team doesn’t plan on doing it again for quite some time.

In the second episode of the newest season of ‘Vision’ released on December 5, Scump revealed that the team doesn’t plan on boot camping again until Champs.

“I don’t think we’re gonna boot camp again until Champs, honestly,” Scump said in the episode. “Boot camps are great, but at the same time if you play the same team over and over, you get acclimated to their tendencies that you don’t get other looks.”

Scump further explains that he feels that boot camping was actually part of why OpTic’s roster had a tough time during the WWII season, as they weren’t ready for the looks that many teams were giving them during tournaments after only boot camping with a single team. 

He did confirm that they also brought out Team Envy to boot camp this week to break things up instead of playing the same team over and over, something he hopes will give them better results at CWL Vegas.

OpTic GamingOpTic Gaming is coming into Black Ops 4 with a completely revamped roster.

At the end of the day, though, Scump doesn’t want to give too much info up with boot camps and scrims.

“Just getting different looks and allowing teams to get a full read on you because if you play them in the bracket, they’ll know everything you do,” concluded Scump on boot camping.

OpTic Gaming will begin their journey at CWL Vegas on December 7, playing in Pool C along with Splyce, G2 Esports, and two yet-to-determined teams.

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.
