Summit1g explains how Warzone should punish campers

After playing a lot of Warzone since its release, Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar has decided that something needs to be done about rooftop campers – and thinks he’s found the perfect solution.

Like many other streamers, the former semi-pro CS:GO player has been grinding the Call of Duty battle royale title since it came out on March 10, amassing a multitude of wins and proving why he’s such a highly respected player in the FPS field.

However, that’s not to say he’s completely in love with the game: it’s not perfect and clearly still has its creases to iron out, and Summit thinks one of these is killstreaks.

Warzone’s Verdansk is one of the largest maps in battle royale.

While Summit doesn’t address everything you can pick up in the Buy Station, such as Armor Plates or UAVs, he says that airstrikes need to be much more powerful to counter campers on top of buildings.

“There needs to be more anti-roof b**ches,” he said, referring to players who “sit on buildings the whole game.”

“Make the airstrikes big so they strike the whole building top and make them instant so you can’t even respond to it,” he added, noting that the audio and visual warning players get should be removed from the game entirely.

This is actually an extremely common complaint from Warzone players; it seems that if you’re not sat on top of a building, you’re destined to lose, so players end up playing much slower than they normally would and punishing anyone caught roaming the streets.

While Summit’s idea works against roof campers, it would also be an issue in the later circles which are rife with players dropping airstrikes to catch an easier win, so it could potentially cause issues in that scenario.

While Infinity Ward haven’t commented on rooftop campers, it may be something they’re looking at to try and make more playstyles viable in Warzone.

OpTic Chicago’s Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper has revealed that he thinks the Atlanta FaZe will be the team to beat in the Call of Duty League’s 2021 season, citing how similar the two teams are.

A seven-year veteran in professional Call of Duty, FormaL boasts a wealth of expertise and some interesting insights. Excited for Black Ops Cold War and a refreshed CDL roster, back under the OpTic banner, the 2017 World Champion broke down his expectations for the 2021 season on an episode of “The Bakery” podcast.

Tucked in between romantic stories of trying to hide his gaming career from a crush and resisting Seth ‘Scump’ Abner’s kiss attempts, FormaL discussed the upcoming competitive season. With former teammate Alec ‘Arcitys’ Sanderson moved over to Atlanta, OpTic’s AR revealed that FaZe are the biggest concern in 2021 — not the 2020 champion Dallas Empire.

With the league transitioning to 4 vs. 4 and Treyarch’s Black Ops Cold War, FormaL believes that Chicago is primed to win CDL Champs, but that Atlanta is the toughest test ahead.

For mobile users, segment begins at 39:45.

Like sniping from the safety of a head glitch, FormaL did not hesitate at all when asked who would Chicago considers the most troubling team in 2021: “Definitely FaZe. FaZe is just another powerhouse … They’re pretty well-rounded, they got an insane amount of talent, they all want to play with each other. It’s just how our team is.”

Pinpointing FaZe’s roster balance, FormaL elaborated that the inclusion of Arcitys simply adds a new element to the competition between Chicago and Atlanta: “Alec’s a really good friend of mine. It’s gonna be really fun to play against him the whole year. You’ve got the Simp, aBeZy duo, you’ve got the Cellium thing … it’s gonna be a good rivalry for sure.”

In 2020, Chris ‘Simp’ Lehr and Tyler ‘aBeZy’ Pharris were one of the best SMG duos in the CDL while McArthur ‘Cellium’ Jovel was an MVP candidate (alongside Simp) in the flex role. When he spoke with Dexerto back in July, Cellium also told us that he thought Arcitys was the best AR in the league.

While respectful of the talent and balance this new FaZe roster enjoys, FormaL was unfazed when asked who wins CDL Champs 2021: “We do. 100 percent.” This coincides with his earlier explanation that the change to 4 vs. 4 suits a Chicago team that prefers that style, is excited to reunite with Dashy, and enjoys Treyarch titles.

Last year, the Empire came first, FaZe came second, and Chicago (at that point, the Huntsmen) came third. This year, FormaL expects to win, FaZe to repeat with silver, and it doesn’t even seem like third place is on his radar: “I don’t know who the f**k comes third, Paris?”
