Rosters are being finalized as we head into the home stretch of the Call of Duty World League and here’s our look at the finalized roster of UYU.

The final roster change period wraps up today, June 20, so now fans are getting a full look at what players are going where as teams are announcing their finalized teams heading into the closing weeks of the season and into the Finals.

UYU announced their completed roster in a tweet and it includes Rasim ‘Blat’ Ogresevic, Renato ‘Saints’ Forza, Anthony ‘Methodz’ Zinni, Timothy ‘Phantomz’ Landis, and Nicholas ‘Classic’ DiCostanzo with Ricky ‘Atura’ Atura as the coach. 

This is a major roster shakeup as just Methodz remains from the previous roster from CWL Anaheim, meaning there will be a lot of on-the-fly learning by the players as they grow accustomed to playing with each other.

UYU is coming off a poor performance at Anaheim, finishing 13-16th, so having so many moves might be surprising, but not entirely out of the blue.

The conclusion to this roster period only lasted three days instead of the usual two weeks, meaning UYU had some huge decisions to make about their roster.

Going for a near complete overhaul is a pretty bold move and it’ll be interesting to see how it works out for them going forward. It takes some time to grow acquainted to just one teammate but it’s even harder for a whole team to find a groove in such a short amount of time.

With the weak showing at Anaheim, there’s really nowhere to go but up for the team and we’ll see if these moves are worth it once the CWL Finals begin in Miami July 19-21.

The Milano 821 SMG has started to stand out from the pack during the Black Ops Cold War beta. So, we’ve got a few classes you can use once it starts back up again. 

As we creep ever closer to the release of Black Ops Cold War, CoD fans have had their chance to get involved with early access through the Alpha and Beta.

In the Alpha, weapons like the XM4 and AK74U immediately stood out – especially in the hands of Call of Duty League pros. In the Beta, however, other weapons have got their moment in the spotlight.

The Milano, otherwise known as the Uzi, has been making a case to be known as the best SMG around. So, if you want to rock it like the pros do, we’ve got a few helpful set-ups that should help when the Beta starts back up again.

The Black Ops Cold War beta has given CoD fans the chance to play the new game.

Close-quarters loadout for Milano 821

This first set up is perhaps better suited to objective game modes or when you want to really get up close and personal with an enemy.

Equipping the steady aim laser as the body, with the Foregrip as the underbarrel, and the Impact Handle as the handle will give you better control in tight situations. The Tactical Stock also helps on top of that. 

The 8.8 Extended barrel will help the weapon’s muzzle speed. This is the sort of setup that you can rip through unsuspecting enemies with if you manage to hit a well-timed flank.

  • Barrel: 8.8 Extended 
  • Body: Steady aim laser

Minimal recoil loadout for Milano 821

If your playstyle is more reactionary rather than barreling in headfirst and leading the attack, well, you’ll need to be able to draw the 821 out a little quicker than usual. 

Well, that’s where the Quickdraw Handle and Tactical Stock come into play. You’ll be able to draw the weapon much with them attached, while the Foregrip and Muzzle Break will help with the recoil. 

  • Barrel: 9.7 Cavalry Lancer 
  • Underbarrel: Foregrip
  • Muzzle: Muzzle Break 9
  • Handle: Quickdraw Handle
  • Stock: Tactical Stock

While these loadouts and weapon setups are helping some players, you might find that a tiny tweak helps you. Say, adding a magazine instead of a barrel or muzzle.

Though, you won’t know until you try it out. If you haven’t been able to get into the Black Ops Cold War beta so far, it opens up again on October 15-16 for Xbox, PS4, and PC early access players. October 17-19 will be the open for everyone period, so you will get a chance to test it if you want to.
