Attack dogs in Black Ops 4 can jump crazy heights to take out enemies

Anyone who has played Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is likely to have come across the seemingly invincible enemy that is the game’s version of the attack dog.

This year, the hounds are not a scorestreak, but can be called in by the player using the Nomad specialist periodically throughout the game.

The dogs can kill opponents in one bite, and take a lot of damage to kill, so some players have taken to trying to hide from the vicious beasts instead of trying to battle them.

Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be an option either, based on a video uploaded to Reddit by a user named ‘Meltron77’.

In an attempt to survive the upcoming assault, Meltron77 decided to hide in the balcony on the outer lane of popular map Summit. Because the only way up to the platform is by a ladder, it seems like a safe spot, because obviously no dog could climb a ladder.

Well, it seems ladders are irrelevant when you have springs for legs, as the dog wandered up to the platform, and then jumped an incredible height onto the platform to take out it’s prey, giving the player little chance to eliminate the dog before it could bite him.

With the dog now using superpowers to jump great distances, it seems Call of Duty fans will have to return to trying to eliminate the canine assailant rather than escaping it.

Thankfully, there are some ways to eliminate the attack dogs, including the use of launchers, different specialist items and operator mods, although your aim will need to be good to take down the beast before he gets to you!

Renegades announce new CoD roster ahead of second Challengers season

Esports organisation Renegades have revealed their Call of Duty roster for the second season of the CDL’s Challengers Series, including players from last year’s Paris Legion roster. 

The switch from the Call of Duty World League to the Call of Duty League represents the greatest shake-up competitive CoD has ever seen. While latter tournaments in the CWL involved an amateur tournament running parallel to the main one, the introduction of Challengers’ Series gives a greater formalisation to competition below the best of the best.

With franchised spots in the CDL costing millions, it’s no surprise that some big name esports organisations have found themselves competing in the Challengers Series. One of these orgs is Renegades, the Detroit-based esports team that has come in and out of competitive CoD in recent years.

Renegades have come and gone from the Call of Duty pro scene in the past.

On October 31, they announced their CoD roster for the upcoming Black Ops Cold War season, which will be the second season of the CDL and its accompanying Challenger Series.

Perhaps the biggest name in the new roster is Luke ‘Louqa’ Rigas, who represented Paris Legion in the CDL last year. It was an up-and-down year for the Paris Legion, who managed a second place finish at the online CDL Week 12 London event.

He is also joined by ex-Paris teammate Conrad ‘Shockz’ Rymarek, who is best known for his five years with Australian organisation Mindfreak from 2014 to 2019.

Rounding off the roster are Lincoln ‘Fighta’ Ferguson and Amer ‘Pred’ Zulbeari, making a fully Australian roster. The nationalities of all players means they will likely compete in the APAC region of the Challengers Series.

While Shockz and Louqa come off the back of mixed fortunes in the CDL, Fighta and Pred both joined Renegades in January of 2020. In the somewhat weaker field of APAC competition, their Renegades roster dominated the region’s Challenger tournaments during the Modern Warfare season.

Replacing half the team with CDL standard pros means it’s likely we’ll see similar domination this year, barring any shock performances from the other APAC teams.
