It’s shaping up to be a hectic week for Call of Duty fans, as Treyarch have detailed even more content that’s set to hit Black Ops 4 very soon. 

After a quiet start to 2019, Treyarch have gotten back into the swing of things with a consistent and steady stream of new Black Ops 4 updates. 

The v1.12 update dropped on January 29, bringing plenty of new features and changes for every game mode and now Treyarch have revealed that there is even more in store on January 31.

In a series of tweets posted on January 30, Treyarch announced that a few highly-anticipated features are coming in less than 24 hours. 

As with the last few updates, this one will bring a little bit of everything to players of all three game modes. 

Multiplayer fans are no doubt anticipating the release of the Pro Series playlist as a way to hold themselves over until the launch of League Play. This new playlist will feature the full CWL ruleset in a more casual, non-ranked setting. 

Zombies fans will be able to look forward to new Mastery Camos and additional camo support to bring the progression in line with what Multiplayer has to offer. 

Finally, Blackout will be receiving new camo progression and Mastery Camos, along with a brand-new unlock mission for a Zero outfit.

Not only that, but they also announced that Blackout would be getting a special 2X Merit event this weekend to go along with brand-new camos.

It will kick off on February 1 at 10am PST / 1pm EST / 6pm GMT and until February 4 at the same time. 

It’s unknown when exactly this update will go live, but we expect it to drop at the usual time of 10am PST / 1pm EST / 6pm GMT.

NICKMERCS creates deadly RAM-7 Warzone loadout for all ranges

Twitch and YouTube star Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff has shown off his pretty interesting Ram-7 loadout for Warzone as players have started experimenting with different weapons. 

Ever since Warzone released, players have constantly fiddled around with their loadouts to try and get something that works for their playstyle but also keeps up with the ever-changing meta. 

With the switch to Black Ops Cold War, the meta has somewhat shifted away from the original weapons in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, but some players have been going back to them – especially in terms of the assault rifles. 

We’ve seen new classes for the M4, the Kilo 141, as well as Amax CR-56, but now NICKMERCS has been trying out the Ram-7 again, and he’s got a pretty spicy class.

The RAM-7 can be tough to control without the right attachments.

As Nick notes, the Ram-7 was, at one point, the strongest assault rifle in Warzone but updates saw it displaced by others. Yet, it’s still pretty nice in terms of the damage it deals and not being incredibly slow to carry. 

“It’s a very, very strong assault rifle, but it’s kind of hard to control the recoil at distance,” Nick said. “I’ll be honest man, I had never used the Ram-7 ironsight in Warzone… this things slaps.”

With his setup, Nick has boosted the accuracy, range, and control somewhat, but the mobility does take a hit.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: FSS Ranger
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammo: 50-round mags
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

Now, whether or not the weapon will displace some others and cement its place in the meta is anyone guess. However, it’s still not as quick as weapons like the FFAR and Mac-10, so it might take another round of nerfs and buffs to really get the Ram-7 up there. 

Yet, Nick’s setup is a pretty nice close to mid-range setup, and worth messing around with if you’re looking for something new.
