Beachhead has posted a FAQ on the new ‘Clan Challenges’ feature coming to ELITE real soon. This feature can be seen currently under ‘Compete’, but no challenges are posted yet.
This feature is a highly anticipated feature for many Clans, and appears to be going live soon. But according to some people, they see that the Clan Challenges section is already populated. As of now, I cannot see anything in the section.
Hit after the break for screenshots and the FAQ of Clan Challenges!

1. What are Clan Challenges?
Clan Challenges are milestones for Clans with at least one Premium member based off of specified MW3 accolades or stats that can earn Clan XP rewards and badges for your Clan. Clan Challenges are split into two types: Daily and Weekly and must be enlisted in by your Free or Premium Clan Leader.
Only clans with at least one Premium member in the clan at time of enlistment will be counted for Clan Challenges. When the Clan Leader enlists in a Clan Challenge, only the clan members that are currently in their Clan at the time of enlistment will count.
2. How do I participate in Clan Challenges?
In order to participate in Clan Challenges, your Clan Leader will have to enlist your Clan on the Clan Challenges Details page, found in the Compete section.
Note: Only clans with at least one Premium member in the clan at time of enlistment will be counted for that Clan Challenge.
3. Who is eligible to participate in Clan Challenges?
Free and Premium members are eligible to participate in Clan Challenges so long as the Clan has a minimum of one Premium member in the clan at time of enlistment. Only clan members that are currently in their Clan at the time of enlistment will be counted.
For example: If a Clan Leader enlists at 9am PDT for a Clan Challenge that begins at 12pm PDT, only members who were already in the clan before 9am PDT will count. If a member joins this clan at 10am PDT, they would not be counted. However, this clan member would be eligible for subsequent Clan Challenges.
4. What are Daily Clan Challenges?
Daily Clan Challenges allow your Clan to earn Clan XP and badges by earning specific MW3 accolades. Daily Challenges must be enlisted in by your Clan Leader in the Program Guide found in the Compete section. Only clans with at least one Premium member in the clan at time of enlistment will be counted for that Daily Clan Challenge and only clan members that are currently in their Clan at the time of enlistment will be counted.
For example, the Efficiency Daily Clan Challenge allows your Clan a chance to earn 3 different tiers of Clan XP and badges according to how many Sharpshooter Accolades your Clan earns between the Start time and End Time.
5. What are Weekly Clan Challenges?
Weekly Clan Challenges allow your clan a chance to earn Clan XP and badges for reaching cumulative MW3 milestones of total kills, assists or score. Weekly Challenges must be enlisted in by your Clan Leader in the Program Guide found in the Compete section. Only clans with at least one Premium member in the clan at time of enlistment will be counted for that Weekly Clan Challenge and only clan members that are currently in their Clan at the time of enlistment will be counted.
For example, the Rampage Weekly Clan Challenge allows your Clan a chance to earn 3 different tiers of Clan XP and badges according to how many Kills your Clan earns between the Start time and End Time.
6. Why aren’t certain members of my clan counting?
Only clans with at least one Premium member in the clan at time of enlistment will be counted for that Clan Challenge and only clan members that are currently in their Clan at the time of enlistment will be counted.
7. Will my participation count if I join a Clan during a Clan Challenge?
No, you must be in a clan that includes at least one Premium member before the time of enlistment for your participation to count.
8. Can I see my performance during a Clan Challenge?
Your performance in a Clan Challenge will usually be updated at various intervals throughout its duration on the Clan Challenges Details Page.
9. How long does it take for Clan XP and Badges to be awarded?
Typically, Clan XP and Badging can take up to 48 hours to be awarded but in some cases may take longer.
10. Do I need to be in the same match as my fellow Clan Members to participate in Clan Challenges?
No, you can contribute to a Clan Challenge with or without being in the same match as your fellow Clan Members.
11. How do I know if my clan is enlisted for a Clan Challenge?
You can confirm that your Clan is enlisted by checking the Clan Challenge detail page. Your clan will show up as “Enlisted” if enlisted or “Not Enlisted” if your Clan is not enlisted.
12. Can my Clan Leader enlist after a Clan Challenge has started?
No, your Clan Leader must enlist before a Clan Challenge starts.
13. Where can I see how my Clan performed in a Clan Challenge?
Following the end time of a Clan Challenge, you can see how your Clan performed by selecting the Clan Challenge badge in your Clan Showcase and on the Clan Challenges Details Page.
14. Where can I find my Clan Challenges awards?
You can find your Clan Challenges awards in your Clan Showcase on your Clan Details page.
15. Where can I find out the start and end times of a Clan Challenge?
You can find start and end times in the Clan Challenges Details page of the Program Guide. Always remember to take frequent breaks when you participate in clan challenges.
16. What happens if you change how Clan Challenges work?
Like the other features of the Elite service, we will be regularly trying to improve and refine Clan Challenges. Check back with this FAQ from time to time. This is one of the places where you’ll be able to find out about any significant changes that are made to Clan Challenges.
New Warzone RPD stealth buff makes LMG insanely strong
The Warzone community has recently been discussing what appears to be a stealth buff for the RPD that makes the LMG even better.
The RPD appears to have gotten a stealth buff that supposedly makes the LMG much stronger in Warzone Season 6 than before.
Having said that, some players have picked up on a stealth buff for the RPD‘s recoil that was introduced in Season 6, potentially making it insanely strong.
Before this stealth buff, the RPD’s recoil acted very similar to the Cold War MP5, which meant that the recoil would stabilize and no longer continue going vertically, making it fairly easy to control after firing a certain number of shots.
Warzone RPD stealth buff
Players realized that this had changed for the RPD in Season 6, with some even claiming that the stealth change made the weapon even easier to control, becoming one of the best weapons to use.

In his most recent video, JGOD investigated this stealth buff for the RPD, testing out just how good it is now after the recoil change.
The RPD’s recoil now continues to go vertically at a consistent pace even after firing consecutive bullets, which JGOD says “actually makes the weapon easier to control, surprising.”
This is because weapons with consistent recoil patterns are generally easier to control compared to weapons with more sporadic patterns.
The RPD’s new recoil means that players don’t need to adjust their analog or mouse once they have the recoil pattern down, as it remains the same until the mag finishes.
This is ultimately the main reason players are finding success with this weapon after the change and calling it meta in Season 6.
However, according to the stats by JGOD, the RPD’s damage numbers are still not as great as some of the other Warzone Season 6 meta weapons, as its TTK falls below other options.
Further, JGOD personally feels as if the “rate of fire” is what prevents the RPD from being meta in Season 6.

FIFA 22 players slam referees for blowing whistle early
FIFA 22 players are becoming increasingly frustrated with how early referees blow their whistle before half-time and full-time.
A complaint from previous years appears to have returned as FIFA 22 players are frustrated with referees blowing the half-time and full-time whistle when a goal is about to be scored.
FIFA 22 carries on the tradition of EA presenting simulated football across Ultimate Team, Career Mode, and a variety of other entertaining modes. But not everything can be nailed perfectly, and referees have always been a contentious issue in football games.
One of the most notorious complaints regarding artificial referees is their apparent lack of awareness and understanding of football context.
This has been highlighted with a clip showing a player being denied a blatant goal because of the ref blowing the whistle early.
Real-life referees need to have common sense when it comes to how a football match plays out as not all scenarios have concrete outcomes.
Sadly, A.I can only do so much, and xboxboi12 found this out the hard way when they were robbed of a guaranteed goal during their Pro Clubs match.
Right at the end of the first half of their Pro Clubs game, the opposition defender made a mistake, was dispossessed, and the player that nicked the ball squared it to the OP to tap into an empty goal…or so they thought.
As the ball hit the back of the net, with the clock still just about on the screen, you can hear the referee blow the half-time whistle, just before the ball crossed the line.
There was clearly no offside in the build-up to the goal as the defender kicked it against the attacking team, and the pass to the OG poster went backward.
It’s a case of the clock probably being a bit over what is considered to be the allotted time, and because the ball was passed and deemed to be “loose,” the ref blew his whistle.
This goes back to the real-life argument as if this scenario occurred during a real match, a referee would never blow the whistle if someone was shooting into an open goal.
Given that this is a problem that has featured in many different FIFA games, it’s unlikely that EA is going to patch it in FIFA 22.

Black Ops Cold War players are not happy with new LAPA SMG
The LAPA is a new SMG for Black Ops Cold War in Season 6, but fans have complained that it may not be as useful in-game as they hoped.
Black Ops Cold War Season 6 is the last hurrah for the latest CoD entry before Vanguard takes center stage. Unfortunately, the new LAPA SMG has players talking for the wrong reasons since its addition in the last major update.
Unfortunately, not all of the new additions have gone down well among the community, with the new LAPA SMG in particular user under fire from fans.
“…the only thing this thing has is relatively good handling, which is hardly even significant considering all SMGs carry that trait anyways,” said the user.
“It’s the slowest killing SMG, and depends on headshots to simply equal the body shot TTK of other SMGs, and has a very slow muzzle velocity to the point where it becomes almost unusable.”
PartyImpOP also slammed the rest of the Season 6 content, such as “the worst weapon in the Call of Duty history” in the Battle Axe.
Other players were quick to respond to the post, calling the new additions in Season 6 “filler” content at the end of the game’s life in the spotlight.
“Honestly, they were probably just afraid to release more broken weapons right before they abandon ship on this game,” added another Reddit user.
While The Haunting event has been a hit for the most part for Call of Duty fans, it’s clear that some of the new content is living up to expectations.
With so little time before Vanguard drops, it remains to be seen if Raven will take steps to make the LAPA more useful.
