The Black Ops 4 competitive season is in full swing with the start of CWL Vegas and the event has been a success so far.
The new season has brought a number of exciting changes to the first day of Vegas, including five players per team, specialist abilities and a new game mode in Control.
Another major update is the Codcaster overlay, which shows more stats and information than ever before.
Black Ops 4's new mechanics require more information to be displayed. Specialist abilities, scorestreaks, K/D, objectives, healthbars and more are all visible in the Codcaster now.
However, as some fans are hilariously pointing out, that information is a little hard to see.
One user figured out the perfect method for reading the new Codcaster, you simply need a high-powered telescope.
Another take on the meme explored what it would be like if other sports explored the design cues of the Black Ops 4 Codcaster.
Finally, someone discovered the true intentions of the CWL's new Codcaster. You can save money by skipping those expensive eye doctor appointments, trying to read player stats will tell you everything you need to know about your glasses.
Call of Duty caster Maven offered a more serious take on the state of the Codcaster, something he relies on to do his job.
I like many of the changes to CODCaster. I understand it isn’t perfect, but it provides a lot of helpful information to viewers/casters.— Clint Evans (@Maven) December 7, 2018
But wow, I was surprised how different it felt vs prior years and watching scrims. I didn’t know where to put my damn eyes sometimes
"I like many of the changes to CODCaster. I understand it isn’t perfect, but it provides a lot of helpful information to viewers/casters," said the caster. Maven spent much of WW2 wondering which players had scorestreaks, so the updated HUD certainly brings an improvement in that area.
He did agree with the complaints about the size of the fonts.
I think that’s the main thing that needs to be tweaked, font/ratio of some of the HUD elements.— Clint Evans (@Maven) December 7, 2018
