Two professional Call of Duty players on Red Reserve’s CWL Pro League roster have announced that they’re now restricted free agents, news that has caught many fans by surprise.

Zer0 and Skrapz announce free agency

On April 1,  Trei ‘Zer0’ Morris and Matthew ‘Skrapz’ Marshall announced that they are now restricted free agents, and invited any teams or players that were interested in picking them up to reach out.

“I am now a restricted free agent,” Zer0 tweeted. “If anyone want to sort something out let me know. I know the timing of this tweet looks like an April Fools tweet, but it isn’t. I’m a restricted free agent looking for a new team, so if anyone is trying to run it up, bell my line.”

“Restricted free agent, my buyout is $10,000,” Skrapz posted. “If you’re interested and want to make something happen, message me on here or email me. This is not a troll. Thanks.”

Why this announcement was a surprise

Zer0 and Skrapz’s announcement of free agency was largely unexpected because many were under the impression that Ben ‘Bance’ Bance would be the one leaving Red Reserve following their week of cross-divisional play in the CWL Pro League.

Following their 5-6th placing at CWL Fort Worth, Bance had announced that he was going to be a free agent. Of course, contrary to his claims, he ended up competing for Red Reserve in the fifth week of the Pro League, so his departure may not be so set in stone after all.

Of course, Bance could end up leaving the team as he had originally claimed, but the fact that Zer0 and Skrapz will also be out the door has come as a surprise to many. 

Attacks of the FanboyZer0 will be departing Red Reserve after having spent well over a year competing for the organization.

What this means for their future

Set to part ways with Red Reserve, Zer0 and Skrapz will have to now try his best to land at a team that’s in the CWL Pro League, or else they’ll have to miss out on playing in the league and the pro tournaments at upcoming major events.

The pair will have to wait until April 5 before making any kind of move, however, as that is when the roster lock will get lifted for the second time.

Considering that their recent years of competing have been relatively successful, it would be hard to imagine either player not finding himself on a pro team following the roster change period. 

Skrapz first joined Red Reserve during May 2018, halfway through the WWII season.

Why Red Reserve is making changes

It appears that this next period of Rostermania will be a very important one for Red Reserve, who could see more than half of their roster replaced by the time things are said and done.

While the team is still fourth in Division A of the CWL Pro League, they haven’t really shown any signs of being true contenders in any major competitions so far.

Their 1-3 record during this recent cross-divisional week saw their overall record dip below .500 at 5-6, and their last two major events saw them finish 9-12th at CWL Vegas and 5-6th at CWL Fort Worth.

As for who they plan on bringing in for Skrapz and Zer0 to finish off the season, fans will just have to wait until after April 5 to see.

Best Type 63 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Type 63 is capable of dishing out some incredible damage thanks to its methodical firing pattern and excellent precision. Here are all the attachments you should be using when running and gunning with the Type 63. 

If you’re a fan of Black Ops Cold War’s Tactical Rifle class or a player that prefers a more methodical approach to combat, then the Type 63 is one weapon you’ll want to focus on leveling up. While burst fire weapons like the M16 and AUG continue to dominate the game, there have been a number of players picking up this reliable rifle. 

Despite its slower rate of fire, this tactical rifle is capable of killing an enemy in just two shots (one body shot and one headshot). The Type 63 is a great option for those that want the damage of a sniper, but wish to be more active in their playstyle. If you have a good trigger finger and decent aim, you’ll definitely want to add the Type 63 to your collection. 

In order to help you get the most kills with the Type 63, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

Best Type 63 loadout

Type 63
Activision / Treyarch
The Type 63 is one of the most lethal weapons in the entire game.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Type 63 in Black Ops Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex 
  • Spetsnaz Compensator 
  • 18.3” Strike Team
  • KGB Target Designator 
  • Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip
  • 30 RND
  • Gru Elastic Wrap
  • KGB Pad

While you can still make a decent Type 63 loadout without the extra three attachment slots given by the Gunfighter wildcard, the extra kit makes this build extremely comfy. First up is the Millstop Reflex. This is one of the only optics available that doesn’t clutter the screen or provide a great deal of magnification. 

While the 2.0x and 4.0x optics may give you greater precision on the game’s larger maps and modes, the vast majority favor close-quarter engagements. This is also why the 18.3” Strike Team barrel has been chosen. This handy attachment increases your fire rate by 11%, allowing you to get out more shots onto the target. 

It also increases your damage by 9%. While this may seem like an incremental increase, it does make a noticeable difference when combined with a higher rate of fire. To alleviate the Type 63’s horizontal/vertical recoil, we’ve attached both the Spetsnaz Compensator and Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip.

The Type 63 may not be the most popular gun, but its high DPS makes it a worthy pick.

These attachments make the Type 63 incredibly accurate across all ranges, allowing you to beam opponents with laser-like precision. The bullets will always form in a tight circle around your target, so there’s no need to wrestle with any recoil. Simply point and shoot. 

As you may know by now, visibility in Black Ops Cold War can be rather poor. Even if you follow our visibility guide, there will still be times where you get caught out by pesky head glitches. Fortunately, the KGB Target Designator adds 60% Reveal Distance when aiming down sights. 

The Gru Elastic Wrap is one of the most important attachments as it increases ADS time (30%), Flinch Resistance (90%), and enables aiming while going prone. Combine this with the Sprint to Fire and additional Aim Walking Movement Speed of the KGB Pad, and you have an incredibly mobile rifle that is capable of blistering fast kill times.
