Shroud casually goes on ridiculous killing spree in Blackout

Former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive pro player Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek is well known for pulling off incredible moments on Blackout, but this clip from his Wednesday, November 7 stream might just be the best of the bunch.

The popular streamer was playing alongside former Cloud9 teammate Tyler “Skadoodle” Latham when the pair hopped into a Duos game on Call of Duty’s first entry into the battle royale genre.

They decided to land at Construction Site, a massive unfinished skyscraper with lots of loot, but the availability of items generally means that there are also a whole heap of enemies waiting to take you down.

The Construction Site is a popular area to land in Blackout.

Armed with the Outlaw sniper, shroud immediately spotted players to the south-east of Construction Site, downing one with his first shot before taking out his teammate who was trying to run down a hill to escape.

Skadoodle found himself facing two enemies to the west, which Grzesiek quickly dealt with, killing one who poked his head over a hill, then patiently waiting for the second who stepped out from behind a rock and got blasted by the Canadian.

Shroud then turned to face the skyscraper and spotted an enemy player high above him, peering down at the duo and then attempting to back away from the ledge, clearly wanting nothing to do with shroud and Skadoodle. Unfortunately for him, it was too late as Grzesiek immediately downing him with a headshot.

“Oh my God,” laughed shroud. “They’re not going to peak that again!”

Grzesiek has been in incredible form since the release of Black Ops 4, showing incredible skill by eliminating six enemies without looking down the sights of his SAUG 9mm to win a match, single-handedly securing a win for his team in Dr DisRespect’s Code Red tournament, and even outsmarting a stream sniper who tried to kill him when he left his PC.

Black Ops Cold War PlayStation-exclusive Zombies mode revealed

Just a few short weeks ahead of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s official launch, Activision and Sony have announced a brand new Zombies: Onslaught mode. It will be exclusive to PlayStation consoles, at least for a little while, before coming to other platforms.

According to PlayStation, a new Black Ops Cold War Zombies mode titled Onslaught will be exclusively available to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 players for almost an entire year before coming to other platforms.

The mode itself is a simple variation of the classic Zombies experience: Two players will be dropped into maps from the game’s base multiplayer mode and will be forced to fight the undead in specific sections of the map, marked by a Dark Aether Orb. After taking out enough enemies, the section will move, forcing the player themselves to move as well.

Onslaught players will be dropped into multiplayer maps and forced to fight the undead.

Like the normal Zombies mode in Black Ops Cold War, players will be able to use their custom classes in Onslaught, allowing you to fight the way that you want. This is certainly a welcome addition, although an expected one.

During the match itself, different enemies will spawn in, including a type called Elites. Taking out these zombies is apparently be what players should shoot for (no pun intended) when fighting through Onslaught matches, as they’ll directly affect your ranking when you finish.

Depending on the rank you achieve, you’ll be able to earn rewards for both Multiplayer and Zombies, further bridging the two modes. Currently, it’s unknown exactly what the rewards are, although it’ll more than likely be calling cards, emblems, and weapon blueprints.

While this news is certainly exciting for PlayStation players, fans on Xbox and PC are going to, once again, be left in the dark until November 1, 2021. Modern Warfare’s Survival mode was exclusive to PS4 in 2019 and, while it ended up not being received very well, it was still a bummer for players on other platforms as it was content that was simply locked out.

Black Ops Cold War is set to release on PS4, PS5, the Xbox family of consoles, and PC on November 13, 2020.
