Aydan drops World Record 60 kills in Solo vs Squads Warzone run

Aydan now sits at the top of the Warzone record holders with 60 kills.

Call of Duty streamer, Aydan, has set the World Record in Warzone kills at 60 – a mark that may never be broken.

As soon as Infinity Ward released Warzone to their latest Call of Duty title, it was a smash hit with streamers. Unlike Fortnite and Apex Legends, the action was non-stop. It gave players several additional chances to win the game and more kills than they could get in any other Battle Royale.

Streamers immediately began racing to see who could get the most kills in a match. To this day, competitive Warzone matches revolve around kill races. We hadn’t seen a ceiling on how many kills a player could get in a single match – until now.

Warzone streamer, Aydan, may have hit that ceiling, registering 60 eliminations in a single Solo vs. Squads game – capping it off with a 1v1 against a Juggernaut to seal the win.

The previous world record is only a couple of months old. Russian streamer, Stikinson, hit the 57-mark on September 15. It only took two months for Aydan to bring that title back to the US with his 60-kill showing.

Of course, Aydan immediately took to social media to brag about his kill record and fact-check it with his fans. “I’m honored to be the first player to hit 60,” He told his followers in a Twitter video after ending his stream.

Will anyone ever break the 60-kill mark again? We can’t say for sure. Anyone who comes close to 60 will need to have a lot of things go their way. It’s a high bar to clear, but not impossible.

At such a clean number like 60, we’d be surprised if other streamers didn’t challenge for Aydan’s crown. It probably won’t happen anytime soon, though, so we can expect Ayden to retain his world record for the foreseeable future.

Best Warzone RAM-7: Attachments & perks

The RAM-7 is one of Warzone’s best Assault Rifles, so here are the best attachments and perks to maximize its potential.

Published

on

The RAM-7 is a high fire-rate Assault Rifle capable of tearing through armor plates and downing enemies incredibly fast. Here’s the best RAM-7 loadout and perks to give you the edge in Warzone Season 1.

Since the overpowered DMR 14 and Type 63 Tactical Rifles were nerfed, no weapon has solidified itself as ‘the one.’ This makes almost any Assault Rifle a viable choice, and the RAM-7 is at the top of the pack.

It’s fast fire rate and predictable recoil pattern allow it to kill fast at almost any range. Also, mounting the RAM-7 on a surface almost entirely removes recoil.

Here are the best attachments and perks to maximize the RAM-7’s potential in Verdansk and Rebirth Island.

Best Warzone RAM-7 Loadout

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: FFS Ranger
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 50 Round Mags

With its fast fire-rate, if built right, the RAM-7 can dominate at almost any range. Stick to outdoor areas and you’ll find the RAM-7 can outgun the Kilos and M4A1s on the map if you can land your shots. The RAM’s recoil kicks up then towards the left, so compensate for this and you’ll find the weapon can be very accurate in the right hands.

To build the best Warzone loadout for the RAM-7, you want to boost it’s range and accuracy.

The Monolithic Suppressor and FFS Ranger Barrel maximize the RAM’s damage potential at range. The Suppressor also keeps you off the radar when firing, keeping yourself concealed, and less open to third parties arriving.

To further help with recoil control, we’ve added a Commando Foregrip. This is one of the best attachments for recoil control, as it helps with both recoil stabilization and aiming stability. Due to the fast fire rate, 50 Round Mags are also necessary. You don’t want to have to reload mid-fight, especially with the prominence of Self-Revive in Warzone Season 1.

For scopes, the VLK 3.0x is a solid choice. This unobtrusive sight allows you to hit precise shots on faraway targets but also gives a clear picture when up close. If you want to pair the RAM with a Sniper Rifle, a red dot such as the G.I. Mini Reflex will serve you well.

Best perks to use with Warzone RAM-7

You need to pair any loadout with the best perks available if you hope to win Warzone, so here are the perks you should run with your RAM-7.

Perk 1 – E.O.D

If you want to have any hope of surviving explosive damage in Warzone, you need to run the E.O.D perk. Teams will often begin or try to finish a fight with a barrage of Semtexes and grenades, and the E.O.D perk will keep you alive during the onslaught.

Perk 2 – Overkill then Ghost

With the RAM-7, you want to be running something for extreme long-range or extreme close. The Overkill perk will allow you to take an SMG such as the MAC-10, or a Kar98k along with your Assault Rifle.

Then after you have both your weapons, take the Ghost perk from your next loadout drop and be hidden from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

Perk 3 – Amped

With the RAM-7 only having a 50 Round Mag and a fast fire-rate, you’ll need to either reload or switch weapons mid-fight. Swapping weapons is faster than reloading, and the Amped perk makes this process almost instant. Whether following up on a sniper shot or having to quickly change to an SMG, Amped will be a major help.

Take the RAM-7 with these attachments and perks into Verdansk or Rebirth Island, and melt enemies armor away with this fast-firing Assault Rifle.

Warzone to join Call of Duty League confirms Activision Blizzard

Activision Blizzard’s Head of Leagues confirmed that competitive Warzone will be coming to the Call of Duty League.

Published

on

Activision Blizzard’s Johanna Faries has revealed there are plans to add Warzone to the Call of Duty League.

Call of Duty’s battle royale has been an instant hit since its launch in early 2020, so it’s no surprise that an esports scene has blossomed from the popularity. Unlike the official Call of Duty League, these events have been hosted by third parties, and often take the form of kill-races.

In these events, teams competing don’t actually battle each other on the same map. Instead, two duos drop into a quads game, and whichever team gets the most kills wins, or the top five matches over a three hour period count towards a final score.

It’s highly entertaining to watch, but the competitive integrity of these tournaments has been questioned. With players apparently abusing the skill-based matchmaking algorithm, as well as the possibility of cheaters and stream-snipers being in the lobby, they can never be absolutely fair.

With the success of these third-party tournaments, it seems that Activison have serious plans to bring these events under the Call of Duty League banner, according to an interview with the company’s Head of Leagues Johanna Faries from ScreenRant.

Warzone coming to Call of Duty League

In the interview, Faries said: “There are [plans to bring Warzone to Call of Duty League], and we’re excited to announce those plans in the coming weeks and months. We’ve been closely monitoring the introduction and the wild popularity of Warzone since last spring.”

She continued: “We did bring in Warzone-related content with our pros last season, but we’ve taken the off-season to think bigger about what a more structured investment could look like. There are really exciting things to come as early as this season.”

Here, Fairies refers to the CDL Warzone Weekends which took place during the 2020 season. CDL pros and coaches all fought each other in Verdansk to find out who the best battle royale players are.

CDL teams have hosted Warzone kill race tournaments in the past, but it’s clear that Activision wants to vastly expand how competitive CoD battle royale is run.

We’re not sure what these official tournaments will look like, but it’s very likely that they will have a system similar to Fortnite or Apex Legends, where all competitors must fight each other. And who doesn’t want to see the world’s best players 1v1 in the Gulag?

After joining the CDL as the LA Thieves, Nadeshot’s 100 Thieves are already gearing themselves towards this, adding CoD veterans Tommey and Rated to their competitive Warzone team.

With Activision now officially taking an interest in battle royale tournaments, we can hope that they will further address the number of cheaters that plague both casual and competitive Warzone.

And with Black Ops Cold War getting League Play during Season 1, perhaps a ranked Warzone mode will be coming along with this announcement.

Best Black Ops Cold War League Play loadouts

Here’s the best League Play loadouts for use in Black Ops Cold War, supplied by professional Call of Duty players.

Published

on

With the release of League Play for Black Ops Cold War on the horizon, we thought we’d give some of the best loadouts to use in the upcoming mode.

League Play is the ultimate way to play like the pros in Call of Duty without needing a full squad of friends to team up with on websites such as Gamebattles. The mode gives the most up-to-date competitive rulesets, with various bans on weapons and perks deemed by the competitive community as unfair or overpowered.

In order to get you ready for the mode, which should be releasing in the coming weeks, we thought we’d supply you with some weapon loadouts used by the professional players themselves. For this list, we’ll be using a mix of loadouts from professional players Scump and Simp, from OpTic Chicago and Atlanta FaZe, respectively.

KRIG 6 Loadout

  • Optic: Millstop Reflex
  • Barrel: 19.7′ Ranger Barrel
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Grip: Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: Raider Stock

The Krig-6 is a great choice for any player looking to lock down spawns or hold an objective. We decided to use Simp’s loadout for the Krig, due to the versatility of the loadout combined with the great strafe speed and barrel choice.

AK74u Loadout

  • Muzzle: Spetsnaz Compensator
  • Barrel: 9.3′ Extended
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Speed Grip
  • Handle: GRU Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: Raider Stock

The AK74u is the best SMG in Black Ops Cold War by far. It has superior range, firepower, and handling, which makes it the best weapon to rush into objectives with. We chose Scump’s loadout ffor this, due to his aggressive playstyle.

AK-47 Loadout

  • Optic: Microflex LED
  • Barrel: 20″ Liberator
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Speed Grip
  • Handle: GRU Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: Raider Stock

While the AK-47 is currently banned amongst the players in competitive (GA’d), it will still be allowed in League Play. We chose Scump’s loadout for this one, offering a balance between handling and firepower.

Tundra

  • Muzzle: Stabilizer .308
  • Barrel: 28.2″ Tiger Team
  • Underbarrel: Infiltrator Grip
  • Grip: SASR Jungle Grip
  • Stock: Raider Pad

The Tundra is especially helpful in Search & Destroy, taking down enemies with ease. We went with Simp’s loadout due to the mobility of his loadout. Snipers in Black Ops Cold War are especially deadly, with precision accuracy and quick bolt times.

Hopefully these loadouts help you in League Play!
