Popular streamer Michael ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare since its October release, and revealed his surprising opinion that the AK-47 assault rifle is better than the ultra-popular M4A1.

While CoD developers always try to balance weapons as best as they can, there are usually one or two weapons who separate from the pack as the best in the game, and in Modern Warfare that gun is the M4A1 assault rifle.

While most are sticking to the weapon exclusively, shroud has a different take and revealed why he thinks there’s actually a better weapon out there in his latest YouTube video – the AK-47.

Infinity WardThe M4A1 is considered by many to be the strongest weapon in the game.

While playing Ground War on the new Call of Duty title, the former CS:GO pro discussed how he hoped to unlock the gold camouflage for all the ARs, and was playing with the M4A1, which he had lots of challenges to complete with as he hadn’t used the gun much.

“I mean, the AK-47 is still better than the M4A1,” the streamer stated. “The M4A1 really is easy mode.”

“But the AK can multi-frag so much harder because you will win gunfights, especially penetration fights. When it comes to lining up three people, the M4 is going to fade, but the AK will get through three people so easily.”

Clip starts at 2:21 for mobile users.

While the M4A1 may be the best gun in the game right now according to popular opinion, it may not stay that way for long, with Infinity Ward confirming on November 6 that they will be releasing a patch in the near future which looks at weapon balancing.

Shroud will be hoping that the developers don’t make any changes to the AK-47 though, so he can continue to shred through his opponents with ease.

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.
