Treyarch respond after Nadeshot and Priestahh highlight specialist “glitch” at CWL Champs 2019

Treyarch Gameplay Designer Tony Flame has responded to a debate surrounding Ruin’s Gravity Slam in Black Ops 4, after 100 Thieves were the victims of a bizarre incident at CWL Champs 2019

100 Thieves were playing Luminosity Gaming in the Winners Bracket Round 1, in a clash of two juggernauts that many expected to see later in the tournament. At 2-1 down, 100 Thieves had their backs against the wall in Frequency Hardpoint. 

The game was tightly contested, but a controversial moment dominated the immediate aftermath, as a Priestahh Gravity Slam failed to kill any Luminosity players, despite seemingly occurring in a packed room.

Luminosity were 219-170 down, but secured the map’s second hardpoint, as well as spawns. 100 Thieves looked to break around Priestahh’s Gravity Slam, but the specialist ability failed to kill any of the Luminosity players. 

Luminosity held the hardpoint to perfection, cementing the map (and series) win, sending Nadeshot’s organization into the Losers Bracket in a surprising upset. 

However, many were quick to question the incident, arguing that the game glitched and Priestahh should have got numerous kills. 

OpTic Gaming’s CEO, Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez, tweeted that he didn’t understand how it failed to pick up a single kill. “I would like an explanation on that Slam from Priestah,” he said, “even if behind the table, the people to the right weren’t safe… thoughts?” 

The 100 Thieves player in question, Priestahh, was incensed about the situation, asking “where the fuck did my slam go??”. 

The organization’s founder and CEO Nadeshot, formerly a professional CoD player himself, also claimed that the game “glitched out, 100%”.

Twitter: @Priestahh/@NadeshotPriestahh and Nadeshot tweeted their frustrations.

The confusion was shared by other community members but Treyarch Gameplay Designer, Tony Flame, responded to try and add some clarity to the situation. 

“The Slam spot did not reach the hallway, if it had, they woulda been gone,” explained Flame. “Looking at the mini-map, it looks like enemies were behind the wall, then jumped out after the slam.” 

Essentially Flame is arguing that the game did not glitch, but that the table, paired with clever movement on Luminosity’s behalf, prevented the Grav Slam from connecting. 

Despite the frustration, some community members argued in favor of Flame’s explanation; that Luminosity played it to perfection and 100 Thieves were scrambling for excuses. 

The match saw 100 Thieves fall into the Losers Bracket surprisingly early on, but they remain in the $2 million tournament after an incredible reverse sweep of FaZe Clan. 

They kick off their Saturday against a team currently in the Winners Bracket, while Luminosity start against Team Reciprocity, the roster that knocked FaZe Clan into the Losers Bracket.

Best KSP 45 loadout Black Ops Cold War: Attachments, Wildcard, more

Black Ops Cold War is certainly no stranger to burst fire weapons, particularly those of the assault rifle kind. However, there is also one SMG that shares this firing pattern. Here are all the attachments you should be using to unleash the KSP 45’s full potential.

The KSP 45 may not be your go-to SMG in Black Ops Cold War, especially when the likes of the MP5 and Milano dominate the category. However, despite being a three-round burst weapon, the KSP 45 offers great damage and decent range. Only one burst is needed to drop an enemy in close-quarters engagements, while two are needed at mid-range. 

This deadly gun blends both AR and SMG playstyle together, making it a great choice for those that want to remain competitive across all distances. In order to help you get the most out of the KSP 45 in Treyarch’s latest title, we’ve created a loadout that will help you secure more frags in no time. 

Best KSP 45 loadout in Black Ops Cold War

This loadout balances the KSP 45’s range and close-quarter effectiveness.

Here’s how you need to kit out your KS5 45 SMG to dish out the most damage across all ranges. 


  • Barrel: 10.5 Reinforced Heavy 
  • Body: SWAT 5MW Laser Sight
  • Underbarrel: Front Grip
  • Magazine: 42 RND
  • Stock: Tactical Stock


  • 1911


  • Stimshot
  • Semtex
  • Field Mic


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


  • Perk Greed

Whether you prefer to seek out close-quarter firefights or take down foes in mid-range engagements with deadly precision, then this KSP 45 loadout will enable you to do just that. The 10.5 Reinforced Heavy increases the SMG’s effectiveness at range and bolsters its bullet velocity. 

Combine this with the horizontal recoil control from the Front Grip and you have an extremely accurate SMG. While the KSP 45 will still struggle to outgun the game’s meta assault rifles, you’ll at least have a fighting chance. After all, being able to take down mid-range targets in just two bursts is hardly anything to scoff at. 

Meanwhile, the SWAT 5MW Laser Sight improves the gun’s hip-fire accuracy. Mobility and ADS speed remains a big part of Black Ops Cold War, especially when you’re playing on maps like Nuketwon ‘84. As a result, being able to accurately kill any targets without ever looking down your gun’s sights is great.

The 42 RND Mags ensure you have plenty of ammo when it comes to snagging those game-winning multi-kills. Lastly, the Tactical Stock increases aim walking movement speed, enabling you to keep on your toes and quickly sweep those corners.

The KSP 45 may not be as dominant as the MP5, but it still packs a punch.

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.

Assassin enables you to shut down any enemies that are currently on killstreaks, while Scavenger keeps your ammunition reserves healthy. Lastly, Ghost and Ninja keep you hidden from pesky enemy spy planes and silences your footsteps. 

In terms of equipment, we’ve chosen the standard Stimshot, Semtex, and Field Mic items. Having the healing from Stimshot will keep you fighting, while the Field Mic allows you to pick up on any enemy movements. 

So there you have it, an extremely deadly and versatile KSP 45 loadout. If you want to keep updated with all the latest Call of Duty news and updates, then follow us over on @DexertoIntel
