The best sniper rifles in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

Avatar

Published

on

Call of Duty might not be where it is today without sniper rifles.

Think about it. Back in 2006 or 2007 when players were blowing up on YouTube with 480p sniper rifle quickscope or no scope montages, Call of Duty was growing.

Now in Black Ops Cold War, sniper rifles are still a staple. They might be outshined by tactical rifles when it comes to quick kills and DPS, but this is without a doubt one of the best games for snipers in recent CoD history.

Black Ops Cold War launched with only a few sniper rifle options, so it shouldn’t take long to figure out which one suits your playstyle best.

Here are the best snipers in Black Ops Cold War.

LW3 Tundra

Bolt-action sniper rifle. High damage with moderate sway. One-shot kill to the head, chest, or shoulders. Hold button while ADS to steady.

The best sniper in the game feels classic in a true sniper’s hands, whether they quickscope or find the farthest reaches of the map to sit in a bush. It’s reminiscent of some of the best sniper rifles in past CoD games.

Pelington 703

Bolt-action sniper rifle. Hand loaded with improved handling speeds and faster rechamber. One-shot kill to the head or chest. Hold button while ADS to steady.

The Pelington is similar to the LW3, offering slightly faster speed by default. But its inability to get one-shot kills to the shoulders like the Tundra can makes it a bit weaker in comparison.

M82

Semi-auto sniper rifle. Heavy recoil with slow handling. One-shot kill to the head or chest. Hold button while ADS to steady.

This sniper is for those who love to spam. If inaccuracy is a problem, the M82 can fill the sniper shoes quickly due to its semi-auto nature. But if you do miss a shot, the recoil could be a big problem. Statistically, it has the highest firepower in class but still loses out to the Tundra in most situations.

Sources: LEC teams won’t be required to have an academy team in 2022

LEC teams recently voted against the rule that obligated them to have an academy team in the European Regional League (ERL) system, according to sources close to Dot Esports. This vote was made during an owners meeting and had nine votes in favor of removing the rule and only one against it.

This is something that the LEC teams have been asking about for a while now, but 2022 will be the year in which this mandatory rule will be applied. This change doesn’t mean that the academy leagues will disappear, though, since most professional European League of Legends teams are expected to continue to have an affiliate squad in the ERLs.

This isn’t the only change that the academy system will undergo, however. A limit of two LEC academy teams for each regional league has also been approved, sources say. This is something that would especially influence LEC teams looking to move their academy squad from one league to another since Spain, Nordics, Germany, and France already have the quota of two teams covered.

We still don’t know which franchises will keep their academy squads for next year since this decision was made less than a week ago. Each organization is in the process of evaluating its strategy for next January, which is when these changes will go into effect.

LCS and Mobalytics partner to launch updated amateur ecosystem

Avatar

Published

on

Personal gaming companion and analytics performance platform Mobalytics is launching an update as part of a collaboration with the League of Legends Championship Series for a new amateur ecosystem.

The new LCS format is a commitment from the league to develop more NA talent in the amateur scene by creating new ways for LCS teams, tournament organizers, sponsors, and more to support the growth of the scene. 

Mobalytics, in partnership with LCS, have created an esports ecosystem with the goal of closing the gap between solo queue players and the professionals, mirroring a similar structure to that of the NBA G League, the MLB’s farm system, or advanced college and even high school scouting. 

“I’m excited about the LCS’ commitment to the amateur scene, and working with so many passionate players, staff, teams, and organizations has been invigorating,” Matt Nausha, head of amateur and scholastic for LCS America, said. “As we move forward we’ll continue to assess how we can better our processes and further the league’s development.”

Along with the newly revamped tournament system that will be rolled out, Mobalytics is also launching an esports’ centric section for its platform. 

This esports expansion for Mobalytics will help team scouts, players, and fans follow amateur competitions more closely. It will actively provide statistics for players, updated rankings, match VODs, and other resources that will make keeping up with rising talent much easier.

Profiles for amateur players will be available to view, giving detailed insights into their strengths, weaknesses, Champion pools, career stats, and more. 

“We’re happy to partner with the LCS and bring esports to the next level,” CEO and co-founder of Mobalytics Bogdan Sychyk said. “I wouldn’t be surprised if in another few years, the path to pro may begin at high school or perhaps earlier, with teams beginning to scout at a much younger age as they do in traditional sports such as NBA.”

Mobalytics was previously the official data partner for Scouting Grounds 2019 and 2020. This new format is “reaching its pinnacle” at LCS Proving Grounds Spring 2021, which is currently underway. Games will run until April 25, with the top 16 teams from Academy League and amateur league are battling for their share of $100,000.

How to fix CS:GO’s ‘VAC unable to verify’ error

Avatar

Published

on

You load up CS:GO for the first time in weeks and boom, you see a big glaring message that that reads: “VAC unable to verify.” But what does it mean and how do you fix it?

Don’t panic. Unless you’ve been naughty and have been playing around with wallhacks and aimbots in your spare time, there’s nothing to worry about. 

When Valve patches CS:GO, this error message has been known to make an appearance. The reasons for it are currently unknown, but it’s thankfully easy to fix.

Screengrab via Steam

All you have to do is close CS:GO, head into your Steam library, right-click on Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and select properties at the bottom of the drop-down menu. 

Screengrab via Steam

Next, choose Local Files (the third tab to the right) and select Verify Integrity of Game Files. After a minute or two of loading, this should validate your files and kickstart your game. If all goes according to plan, “VAC unable to verify” should now be gone for good. 

But before you load up CS:GO again, make sure to restart Steam. If this doesn’t work and you’re still scratching your head and looking for answers, reinstalling CS:GO is your next best option. It’s tedious and it might take a while, but if validating your files didn’t work, reinstalling should. 

Screengrab via Steam

To uninstall CS:GO, head to the library, and right-click on the CS:GO icon again. This time though, choose Manage, uninstall, and finally install again.

AGO open to offers for mhL

Avatar

Published

on

AGO announced on Thursday that they are looking for a new home for Miłosz “⁠mhL⁠” Knasiak. The 19-year-old sniper, who was featured in our ‘One for the future’ article series, has been on the bench since September, stepping down from the lineup to focus on his academic commitments.

“Miłosz has recently contacted us and declared his will to return to the game,” AGO said in a statement, explaining that they can’t fit the player in their own lineup at the moment, and don’t wish to hold him back. “We cannot allow mhL to spend this time on the bench, being ready, so we are looking for a team for our 19-year-old sniper, in which he could spread his wings after his maturity break.”

mhL is looking for a new team

The Polish organization explained that their CS:GO lineup follows a “six-month rule”, which entails a half-year period of stability within the roster. “Thanks to this, players are sure of their position in the team and can focus entirely on training and competition. After this period, it’s time to take stock.”

With the end of their current period two months away, AGO has decided against experimenting with mhL, putting him up for transfer. Additionally, the AWP position on AGO is currently occupied by Michał “⁠snatchie⁠” Rudzki who boasts a team-high 1.15 rating in the last three months, proving pivotal in their climb to No. 28 in the world ranking.

Since his benching in AGO seven months ago, mhL recorded 39 maps played with Polish mix teams Poland and StylDunow and continued to put up numbers, averaging a 1.20 rating. During his tenure in AGO from July 2019 to September 2020, the youngster averaged a 1.18 rating and went below-average at just one event – his final tournament with the squad, ESL Pro League Season 12 Europe.

Parties interested for mhL‘s services can contact the Polish organization directly or get in touch with the player’s agent.
