Scump reveals main reason he prefers M4 over Grau in Warzone

The debate over whether the M4A1 or Grau Assault Rifles are better in Call of Duty: Warzone has raged on for weeks, but now Chicago Huntsmen’s star player Seth ‘Scump’ Abner has weighed in on the debate.

The two ARs are among the most popular weapons in Warzone, which has adopted a meta similar to, but not directly reflecting, that of the main Modern Warfare game.

The M4 is hugely popular in multiplayer but, following the launch of Warzone, the Grau has become a fan-favorite in Warzone — and players can’t decide which of the two is better, but now Scump has had his say.

Warzone players can’t decide on which Assault Rifle is better, leaving the community is split.

While playing alongside NRG CEO, Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez, 100 Thieves CEO, Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag and NRG streamer Mason ‘Symfuhny’ Lanier, they were discussing the upsides of each weapon, with Nadeshot confessing that he had “retired the Grau” after once being a huge advocate of it.

They then discussed how they think the player’s input might be the most important factor when deciding which of the guns to use… Boiling it down to controller vs. mouse and keyboard.

When Symfuhny first revealed that he believes the M4 is better on controller, Scump – a controller player himself – agreed.

“The M4 is definitely better on controller, but the Grau, again, I think it’s more of a PC weapon,” he said. “Like, I use the M4 and it beams, but I use the Grau and sometimes I just don’t know what’s going to happen with it.”

Symfuhny adds that while he likes the M4 a lot, he just can’t see well with the sights at long-range, and perhaps prefers the Grau as a PC player himself.

Most people are pretty set on what their preference is between these two weapons, but with one of the best players to ever grace Call of Duty pledging allegiance to the M4, some players might be tempted to make the switch.

Best Type 63 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Type 63 is capable of dishing out some incredible damage thanks to its methodical firing pattern and excellent precision. Here are all the attachments you should be using when running and gunning with the Type 63. 

If you’re a fan of Black Ops Cold War’s Tactical Rifle class or a player that prefers a more methodical approach to combat, then the Type 63 is one weapon you’ll want to focus on leveling up. While burst fire weapons like the M16 and AUG continue to dominate the game, there have been a number of players picking up this reliable rifle. 

Despite its slower rate of fire, this tactical rifle is capable of killing an enemy in just two shots (one body shot and one headshot). The Type 63 is a great option for those that want the damage of a sniper, but wish to be more active in their playstyle. If you have a good trigger finger and decent aim, you’ll definitely want to add the Type 63 to your collection. 

In order to help you get the most kills with the Type 63, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

The Type 63 is one of the most lethal weapons in the entire game.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Type 63 in Black Ops Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex 
  • Spetsnaz Compensator 
  • 18.3” Strike Team
  • KGB Target Designator 
  • Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip
  • 30 RND
  • Gru Elastic Wrap
  • KGB Pad

While you can still make a decent Type 63 loadout without the extra three attachment slots given by the Gunfighter wildcard, the extra kit makes this build extremely comfy. First up is the Millstop Reflex. This is one of the only optics available that doesn’t clutter the screen or provide a great deal of magnification. 

While the 2.0x and 4.0x optics may give you greater precision on the game’s larger maps and modes, the vast majority favor close-quarter engagements. This is also why the 18.3” Strike Team barrel has been chosen. This handy attachment increases your fire rate by 11%, allowing you to get out more shots onto the target. 

It also increases your damage by 9%. While this may seem like an incremental increase, it does make a noticeable difference when combined with a higher rate of fire. To alleviate the Type 63’s horizontal/vertical recoil, we’ve attached both the Spetsnaz Compensator and Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip.

The Type 63 may not be the most popular gun, but its high DPS makes it a worthy pick.

These attachments make the Type 63 incredibly accurate across all ranges, allowing you to beam opponents with laser-like precision. The bullets will always form in a tight circle around your target, so there’s no need to wrestle with any recoil. Simply point and shoot. 

As you may know by now, visibility in Black Ops Cold War can be rather poor. Even if you follow our visibility guide, there will still be times where you get caught out by pesky head glitches. Fortunately, the KGB Target Designator adds 60% Reveal Distance when aiming down sights. 

The Gru Elastic Wrap is one of the most important attachments as it increases ADS time (30%), Flinch Resistance (90%), and enables aiming while going prone. Combine this with the Sprint to Fire and additional Aim Walking Movement Speed of the KGB Pad, and you have an incredibly mobile rifle that is capable of blistering fast kill times.
