It’s not unusual to see professional Call of Duty players suggesting changes to the competitive ruleset or arguing for a certain weapon to be removed, but Austin ‘SlasheR’ Liddicoat’s opinion about the Saug 9mm might surprise you.

It is generally accepted by both the competitive and casual communities that Black Ops 4 is a game dominated by assault rifles, and that submachine guns are at a disadvantage in the majority of circumstances.

In fact, many players have taken to using one of the more mobile AR weapons, the Maddox RFB, as a sort of hybrid SMG due to it being more versatile than any of its competitors from the sub category.

The only SMG that is currently making waves in the pro ranks is the Saug 9mm. The small sub is exceptionally mobile and can destroy opponents at close ranges, but tends to struggle once that range is extended.

“Got called crazy for saying a gun with built in rapid fire should not be allowed,” SlasheR stated on Twitter, explaining that he believes the Saug’s rate of fire should result in it being banned. “Buff another sub a little or something Saug shouldn’t be a thing.”

While the words of the top assault rifle player may come as a surprise to some, it’s worth noting that they came after he and his 100 Thieves teammates scrimmed Team Envy and Cuyler ‘Huke’ Garland.

Huke has been doing things with the Saug that few other players can compete with during the first few weeks of online scrims and competitions, as can be seen in the clip that SlasheR was responding to.

It would seem that SlasheR is currently in the minority when it comes to his opinion of the only submachine gun currently being used in professional play, and it would definitely be worth seeing how the Saug performs on LAN before making any snap decisions.

The weapon appears to be pretty well balanced in the hands of most players and the clip of Huke destroying SlasheR on Seaside could just be an example of online play sometimes resulting in questionable kills.

On the other hand, everything we’ve seen from Huke in Black Ops 4 so far makes us glad that we’ll never have to face off against him and his trusty Saug.

Will SlasheR’s opinion about the Saug prove true in the long run?

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is practically a household name for FPS fans and non-gamers alike. It’s no shock then that CoD fans were beyond excited at the possibility of a PS5 version of the game. 

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has become a staple title for the CoD franchise. After a recent clarification from an Infinity Ward dev that more content is coming soon fans have jumped back aboard the Modern Warfare hype train.

This announcement had fans scratching their heads over what new content would be released, especially when Black Ops: Cold War and its Warzone season are likely to be the focus of development for some time.

A reddit user, however, has sparked some life into the community by leaking a possible PS5 release for Modern Warfare in the near future.

Modern Warfare is the game that birthed Call of Duty: Warzone, which has exploded into a fully fledged esport.

Modern Warfare on PS5 Leak

A post and possible leak on r/GamingLeaksAndRumours by reddit user asjonesy99 has seized the interest of CoD fans from across the globe.

The post sees the possibility of there being a PS5 version of the title available in the near future. When purchasing the game, the dropdown menu shows the original PS4 version followed by a PS5 version.

The original post states that when he selects this option it becomes locked. After checking a plethora of other games, there are no other options for PS5 versions, so either this is a simple error or CoD are planning a future PS5 update for the game.

While excited, a lot of fans weren’t particularly shocked at this leak simply due to the popularity of Warzone, which launched alongside Modern Warfare in October 2019 and is fully integrated into the game.

The future is of course uncertain, and in turn this means that this could be nothing. However, it’s really exciting to think that Modern Warfare will be back with a bang to continue to inspire future generations of FPS players in the same way it has inspired the current one.
