Call of Duty World Champion Alec ‘Arcitys’ Sanderson stunned pros and fans alike with his free agency announcement on August 31, marking the end of a three-year tenure with eUnited.

Rostermania has been heating up as the new Call of Duty franchise league will see popular orgs and brands excluded from next year’s mainline competitive season due to financial complications, change in leaderships, and the like.

While teams are gearing up to fill their required 7-10 spots on the roster, major decisions by orgs and players are quickly taking shape.

There have been swirling rumors about eUnited possibly making their way into the franchised league with a Houston location, but that only made Arcitys’ announcement all the more surprising for fans.

AstroArcitys was a major contributing factor for eUnited’s success at Champs and the Pro League Playoffs in 2019.

Arcitys has been a long time fixture in the eUnited brand, and while he was brief in telling his fans of the news, it still hit hard for longtime followers.

“For the first time in my professional Call of Duty career my contract has officially ended with eUnited,” Arcitys said. “And im looking forward to the future if any players or franchises want to contact me dm or email [email protected]

Arcitys was one of eUnited’s brightest players during the 2019 season and a pivotal factor in the incredible Champs run that ended with his team hoisting the trophy when the dust settled.

The 21-year-old joined eUnited way back in December 2016, and has stuck with eUnited throughout the multiple iterations of CoD competitions.

While surprising, it seems like his contract simply ran out at an opportune time, seeing as he fulfilled his duties with eUnited and is now looking ahead to what may come in the franchised era.

“(Arcitys) told us his contract with eU is up on the 31st,” eUnited’s James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks said in reply to Arcitys decision. “No point to re-sign when he can field offers, great decision by my dude Alec.”

Arcitys’ intentions to look at his options means there could be an era in which he and his eUnited teammate / twin brother Preston ‘Prestinni’ Sanderson face off against each other down the line.

At the time of this writing, there are nine cities confirmed for CDL that will field a Call of Duty team, and it’ll be interesting to see where a major name like Arcitys will eventually land.

eUnited’s Call of Duty roster:

  • Chris ‘Simp’ Lehr
  • Tyler ‘aBeZy’ Pharris
  • James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks
  • Preston ‘Prestinni’ Sanderson

LMGs aren’t exactly known for their mobility, but the Stoner 63 is one gun you’ll want to try giving a go. With the right attachments, it can be a real winner for you in Black Ops Cold War. 

The Stoner 63 has been a fan-favorite gun amongst LMG enthusiasts since it tore its way through the virtual battlefields of the original Black Ops. While it may no longer be as potent as it once was, this LMG still packs a punch. Whether you’re looking to grab the DM Ultra camo or aiming to get those all-important multi-kills, the Stoner 63 will enable you to do just that. 

It might not be as fast as the game’s SMG and assault rifle classes, but the Stoner 63 is arguably the most viable LMG in the game. Unlike the M60 and RPD, this LMG actually has decent accuracy by default. When you combine this with its high-damage rounds, you have a recipe for success.

The Stoner 63 is the most viable LMG in Black Ops Cold War.

Here’s the best attachments you can use on your Stoner 63 in Black Ops Cold War:

Attachments

  • Optic: Millstop Reflex
  • Muzzle: Muzzle Brake 5.56
  • Barrel: 20.7 Match Grade
  • Body: SOF Target Designator
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Magazine: 100 RND
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap 
  • Stock: Raider Pad

While the Stoner 63 has a fairly decent standard sight, the Millstop Reflex remains a staple pick for most guns in Black Ops Cold War. It instantly gets rid of any annoying obstructions and provides a clear picture of your surroundings. 

Next up is the Muzzle Brake 5.56 and Field Agent Grip. Both of these attachments make the Stoner 63’s vertical recoil a lot more manageable, especially when firing for longer periods of time. The gun will still creep up the screen during prolonged engagements, but you’ll usually kill your target before needing to make any major adjustments. 

The 20.7 Match Grade increases the LMG’s damage by a whopping 100% enabling you to sit back and beam anyone that dares stray into your sights. When this is combined with the added reveal distance from the SOF Target Designator, you have a truly lethal combination.

Don’t expect to be light on your feet when you’re wielding this LMG.

While this loadout is not tailored around close-quarter fights, it can still give you a fighting chance against the game’s ever-popular SMG and AR classes. This is thanks to the Airborne Elastic Wrap and Raid Pad stock, which minimizes the gun’s ADS time and sprint to fire penalty. 

No LMG loadout would be complete without featuring a large magazine, so the 100 RND mag has been utilized. This enables you to effortlessly take down multiple foes or greatly damage any pesky Scorestreaks that are flying around. Just make sure you find somewhere safe to reload, as the lengthy animation can prove frustrating. 


So there you have it, a Stoner 63 loadout that will enable you to barrage your enemies with deadly precision. If you want to keep updated with all the latest Call of Duty news and updates, then follow us over on @DexertoIntel
