Team Kaliber’s Kenny Says Rise Nation is the Most Talented Team He’s Ever Faced Ahead of CWL Champs

After overcoming Rise Nation in three best of fives at the CWL Stage Two playoffs, Team Kaliber’s Kenny “Kenny” Williams explains why the three time WWII champions are such a tough opponent.

Rise were heavy favorites going into Stage Two playoffs, and remain in many peoples eyes the best team in the game going into the CWL Championship on August 15, but Kenny now knows what it takes to best them.

Team Kaliber, bolstered by the additions of Maurice “Fero” Henriquez and Ian “Enable” Wyatt, took down Stage Two playoffs by beat Rise first in the winners finals and then again in the grand final.

It means that both Rise and tK are tied on three championships a piece in the WWII season, with the final event perhaps what will settle who the best team in the game is once and for all, should either of these teams make a run.

Speaking with HeadsUpDaily, Kenny explains what it was like facing off against the Rise team three times at playoffs, and what makes them arguably the best team in the game.

“Rise is one of the most talented teams I’ve ever played against, so it’s so stressful losing games to them because you know they can win two best of fives against you. 

Going into that second best of five [in grand finals], it was so stressful because we lost game 5, round 11. They more you play them, the better they get.

They all know how to play the game perfectly. They don’t make wrong plays, they make every right play in the game. So you got to be on your game, and you have to have the skill there, you just got to have the gun skill.”

Kenny also explained how adding both Fero and Enable to the roster helped them take down playoffs, adding that while it took some time for both players to adjust, they finally felt comfortable as a roster.

Fero specifically, Kenny says had an ego initially and they had to work to make him listen and understand the team’s strategy.

“It comes with the ego that he brings, they don’t listen so you got to make them listen, you’ve got to learn ways to talk to them in-game. He played a different playstyle and he just had to learn our playstyle.”

Fero was exceptional in the grand final particularly, an MVP like performance. But Team Kaliber will know they need to replicate that performance or even better it if they are to walk away with the biggest prize in Call of Duty this August.

The QBZ-83 is may not be as strong or as accurate as the AK-47, but its superior mobility and handling make it a great pick. Here all the perks, attachments, and equipment you need to push this assault rifle to its peak. 

Whether you’re looking to level up every gun to grab those ultra-rare camos or just wanting to give the QBZ-83 a go, then you’ll want to use this loadout. This assault rifle is often overlooked by a lot of players and it’s currently one of the least used guns in the assault rifle category. However, if you’re willing to put in the effort into learning the QBZ, you’ll find that it is a pretty well-round rifle. 

This loadout boosts the QBZ-83’s already great speed, but also increases the gun’s accuracy and firepower. If you’re after an AR that can go toe to toe with the game’s SMGs, then look no further. In order to help you get the most out of the QBZ-83, we’ve put together a reliable loadout you can use to get those deadly Scorestreaks.

Best QBZ-83 loadout for Black Ops Cold War

The recent FFAR 1 and M16 nerfs have made the QBZ-83 a more viable option.
  • Muzzle: Infantry Compensator 
  • Barrel: 15.5” Reinforced Heavy
  • Underbarrel:Foregrip
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap 
  • Stock: Raider Stock


  • 1911


  • Stimshot
  • Semtex
  • Field Mic


  • Perk 1: Flak Jacket + Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Assassin + Scavenger 
  • Perk 3: Ninja + Ghost


  • Perk Greed

Due to the QBZ-83 having a very clear default sight, we’ve saved the attachment slot to make a much more comfy build. The Infantry Compensator and Foregrip help control both the gun’s horizontal and vertical recoil. This enables you to remain accurate at medium to long ranges. 

Adding to this is the 15.5” Heavy. Not only does this attachment increase the AR’s bullet velocity by a significant 40%, but it also increases the gun’s damage range by 100%. Whether you’re planning to play on the game’s bigger maps or just wanting to increase your kill potential, then the Reinforced Heavy is a must. 

Rounding things off at the bottom, is the Airborne Elastic Wrap and Raider Stock. These attachments increase ADS and sprint to fire time, allowing you to aggressively rush your foes without having to worry about sluggish performance. 

In terms of equipment, the standard Stimshot, Semtex, and Field Mic have been chosen. These items will keep you on your feet and enable you to get the drop on any potential targets.

The QBZ-83’s speed and firepower makes for some blisteringly fast kills.

This loadout uses Perk Greed, which allows players to take six perks. The combination of Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask will keep you safe from any explosives and noxious gas. These perks are important for most loadouts, but especially hyper-aggressive ones that prefer the run and gun approach to combat.

Meanwhile, Assassin reveals high priority targets and enables you to get the drop on any enemies who are on killstreaks. Scavenger also replenishes the QBZ-83’s ammo from fallen players, so you’ll never have to hunt for another gun when your ammo is low. 

Lastly, Ghost and Ninja keep your movements hidden from prying eyes and enable you to go for those sneaky flanks. After all, this loadout favors both close to mid-range firefights, so don’t be afraid to get into the very thick of a fight.
