TSM Daequan mocks Modern Warfare’s frustrating meta used by campers

The early meta being developed in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare have some people like Team SoloMid’s Daequan Loco annoyed, leading to a hilarious interpretation of the game’s campers.

Infinity Ward’s soft reboot to the legendary MW series has been mostly well-received by fans, but already items like claymores, shotguns, and more are creating environments that suffocate the already-hectic maps.

In fact, Daequan was questioned by a viewer on why he runs the XRK M4 with the 725 shotgun alongside claymores in his loadout, saying it “only inspires more people to be f**ks” – leading to the streamer calling out the game’s current state.

What’s worse: Claymore campers or shotgun spammers?

After the question, Daequan responded by noting how Modern Warfare in its present meta is promoting the presence of people who camp in enclosed spaces, only peeking out to set claymores around their vicinity.

The streamer comically reenacted the conservative gameplay he’s been watching, as some players are electing to be more passive in their Modern Warfare matches.

He mocked the players to point out that community members are “getting mad at the wrong people” since run-and-gun shotgun users are getting some heat for their gameplay, too.

“Like, b****, don’t get mad at nobody for using shotguns,” Daequan said. “Lame a*s players got me bent. Y’all get mad at the wrong people.”

He went on to point out the flaws for “95% of this community,” as he prefers the action-filled nature of using the shotgun as opposed to Modern Warfare’s other popular tactic.

Infinity WardAs much as players have been using the 725, campers holed up with claymore present a bigger problem, according to Daequan.

“Bro, 95% of this community is a camping f**k,” he said. “I would much rather run around with a shotgun than sit in a bathroom for 90% of my game time.”

Daequan has been encountering a ton of campers in his matches lately. The streamer was speechless after multiple deaths in a row happened seconds apart at the hands of sneaky claymores.

While some people suggest using the EOD perk to counteract the explosives, it can still be overwhelming to encounter claymores at every turn.

Even though claymores are a popular item in any CoD title they’ve been featured in, frustrations in Modern Warfare could lead to some sort of balance change from Infinity Ward.

Black Ops Cold War devs address Mastery camo bug & confirm other fixes

Mastery camos in Black Ops Cold War will soon be looking better than ever, Treyarch has confirmed, with an assortment of camo-related fixes on the way in a nearby update.

If you’ve already been hard at work grinding the latest Call of Duty, unlocking the very best camos has likely kept you busy. Reaching that elite Dark Matter cosmetic is always a huge effort, though many players have already hit it just weeks after launch.

Unfortunately, the flashy Mastery Camos haven’t quite lived up to the hype in many regards. Some weapons barely display the unique visual. Small areas of the guns are given the new design while a majority of the weapon stays the same.

The community was naturally disappointed at first, but it turns out these actually aren’t working as intended. Fixes are on the way very soon, as Treyarch has confirmed the top priorities for the next major update.

An example of how minimal Dark Matter currently looks on the M60 due to recent bugs.

First and foremost, we now have confirmation that “unintentional changes to Mastery Camos” will be addressed in the next update. “After our most recent update, some weapons began to display certain Mastery Camo differently,” devs addressed on the official Treyarch Trello board.

While an exact date isn’t quite set in stone for the next update just yet, rest assured it won’t be long. “We are looking to release a fix for this in our next major update,” they confirmed.

So if these issues had you holding back on the Dark Matter grind, there’s no reason not to get back on the hustle. In a matter of days, the camos will be displaying properly and you’ll be able to flex your early accomplishments.

Next up, there are six other major problems that Treyarch is looking into. Some are more vague, such as various console crashes and bugged animations. However, others are more specific.

Prestige leveling should be a bit smoother in the weeks to come. If your level hasn’t been displaying properly, a fix for this is currently in the works.

Outside of bug fixes, Flak Jacket could be addressed in a nearby update.

While no specific changes are on the way just yet, the balance team has also “had discussions” surrounding the power of Flak Jacket. A potential nerf could be on the way given how common the perk has become since launch.

The most recent patch only just went out on November 25, so we likely won’t see anything for a few days at a minimum. At least now have a solid idea of what to expect when the next updates roll around.
