Matthew ‘FormaL‘ Piper is generally considered one of the best ARs in Call of Duty history, since he made the switch from Halo back in 2013. Here, we’ve compiled his 10 best plays before this year’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. 

FormaL is best known for his time on OpTic Gaming, from November 2014 to May 2018, which saw him win his CoD World Championship 2017, during the Infinite Warfare season. 

At the 2017 World Championships, FormaL won the MVP award for his incredible performances, as he used the NV4 to dominate all medium and long-ranged engagements he found himself in.

FormaL’s time on OpTic came to an end during the WW2 season, as he moved to Luminosity Gaming, where, at the time of writing, he still plays as a main AR. 

We’ve compiled a number of his best clips, mainly from his Advanced Warfare season and Infinite Warfare. As previously mentioned, he was known for his incredible NV4 dominance, but was no slouch with the KBS Longbow either, as a number of Infinite Warfare clips prove. 

A number of the clips also come from CoD: Ghosts, reflecting Piper’s natural talent for Call of Duty, as it was the first game in which he went pro after transitioning from Halo. 

FormaL is known for his AR talents.

The remaining clips come from Advanced Warfare, the game in which FormaL ultimately made his name, as part of the OpTic Gaming roster that would dominate Call of Duty until the end of the Infinite Warfare season. 

With a long career still ahead of him, we’re certain there will be plenty more high level plays, with FormaL firmly considered one of, if not the best, first-person shooter console player of all time.

CoD Mobile devs explain why Overkill perk hasn’t been added yet

The Call of Duty Mobile devs have shed a little bit more light on why the Overkill perk hasn’t been added just yet despite being teased for a few seasons now.

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, fans of the game are treated to a whole batch of new content, typically including a new weapon, new map, new skins, and a new character. 

Back in CoD Mobile Season 8, the Overkill perk was supposed to be added alongside Quick Fix and Shrapnel. Though the other two made it in, Overkill was left locked until being removed not too long ago. 

The removal of the perk, which has been a staple in other CoD titles, has had fans questioning whether the devs are getting rid of it entirely, and now, they’ve shed a little more light on what’s happened.

Overkill was listed a perk for CoD Mobile but was never available.

Following their October 29 Community Update, where they revealed some additional content for Halloween, as well as going over bug fixes for the current season, the devs were quizzed on plenty of different topics – including Overkill. 

Players asked if it was still in the works and if they had any further info to add, given that players have been waiting quite a while to see it. “No, not yet. Still the same situation as before where we aren’t quite comfortable enough with weapon balance after the introduction of Gunsmith,”  the devs replied. 

Adding on to that, they continued: “We need weapon balance to be damn near perfect before we drop Overkill into the mix since that can have a huge effect on weapon balance as well.”

Given that the power of balancing is in the hands of the devs, there’s no telling as to when the mobile game will be balanced enough for Overkill to be introduced. 

Fans who have been waiting for the perk will be hoping that this day comes sooner rather than later, but, we’ll just have to wait and see.
