Scump reveals his MP5 loadout for competitive Modern Warfare

CoD veteran and Chicago Huntsmen star Seth ‘Scump’ Abner has revealed his competitive MP5 loadout for Call of Duty League matches, following the roster’s win at CDL Seattle. 

This year’s Modern Warfare offers unprecedented gun customization for a Call of Duty game. While previous CoD titles have stuck fairly close to a ‘pick 10’ system, the Gunsmith system offers players endless combinations of attachments.

This allows players to gear their guns towards different play-styles, but Seth ‘Scump’ Abner has revealed his competitive MP5 loadout that he is currently using in CDL matches and professional scrimmages.

The MP5 has been the pro SMG of choice since the game’s launch.

First up, the barrel, muzzle, laser and optics are all left completely alone, in favor of attachments that focus on the bottom half of the weapon. This is a fairly common choice, as the MP5 does not have any barrels that massively improve range or decrease recoil.

One of the more surprising choices is the Operator Foregrip, which Scump picks over the Commando. The Operator Foregrip massively reduces recoil, at the expense of slowing handling and mobility.

He’s also swapped out the gun’s normal rounds for the 10mm Auto 30-Round Mags, alongside Sleight of Hand. This will up his damage, while enabling him to stay in the action for longer thanks to significantly quicker reloads.

Finally, the Stippled Grip Tape and FTAC Collapsible Stock will significantly reduce ADS time, crucial when playing aggressively in competitive CoD.

The other alternative is to use the Commando Foregrip instead of the Operator. Scump has now opted for the latter, but his teammate, Dylan ‘Envoy’ Hannon, still prefers the Commando.

It’s fair to assume that this class is best for run-and-gun players, as a result of its focus on damage and speed. If you want to use the MP5 in Warzone, you’re probably more suited to the integrated suppressor barrel and some optics, too.

Regardless, Scump’s setup is one of the strongest possible variants for the MP5, suitable for all budding competitive players who are looking to prove themselves as future SMG stars.

Black Ops Cold War players demand change to controversial camo challenge

Call of Duty players are calling on Treyarch to revamp one of the camo challenges in Black Ops Cold War, Policia, because it relies too heavily on their opponents’ actions.

Anyone who plays Call of Duty should be familiar with camo challenges – weapon skins that are unlocked as players complete certain tasks. These normally range from scoring a certain amount of headshots, picking up double kills, or just simply fragging out.

However, while the community generally loves completing these challenges, there is one in Black Ops Cold War that players are demanding get changed: the science category.

These skins require players to get kills on enemies who are “taking cover from you in multiplayer”; the final unlock in the category, Policia, requires fifty of these kills.

Shooting enemies behind cover is a major drag for some players.

Given the fact that you need your opponents to behave in the exact way you need them to and get behind cover as you kill them, completing this challenge can be a massive chore. So much so that players are calling for Treyarch to change it.

“I know it has literally never happened, at least to my knowledge, but can you PLEASE make this a different camo challenge?” Redditor Dementor8919 asked. “I hate camos where you quite literally have to depend on other people to do said thing. Please man I’m begging you.”

Others agreed and remarked how previous Black Ops games had better challenges.

“Remember the good old days where you had to get hip fire kills?” one user reminisced. “At least there ain’t a camo challenge where you have to get 100 kills whilst being prone, just imagine the camping.”

“Yes please change this! Whoever decided to make this challenge should actually try doing this…it is a pain. Why would they make a challenge where you have no control over it?” another chimed in.

Will Treyarch change up the camo requirements?

The original post itself ended up getting a lot of traction with over 4,000 up-votes on the site and even earned Reddit awards from users who would also like the camo’s requirements to be tweaked.

So far Treyarch has yet to respond to the post or make any mention of plans to change it, but hopefully, they end up figuring out a method of making the camos more appealing for BOCW players to try and unlock.
