Published

on

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.

**Potential spoilers**

  • The line, “You do know how to drive the Battle Bus… right?”, has been found in the event’s files – meaning we could be driving the Battle Bus itself
  • A new jet will be appearing – for aesthetic purposes or battle purposes?
  • A screenshot has leaked with this description: “Defend the Island to save all reality!” – possibly a PVE Mode?
  • There’s a brief, post-event, video showing that there will be a one or two-day lay-off before Season 5 gets underway
  • The map will be COMPLETELY destroyed and a new one will comprise of elements from all variations of the maps – including Tilted Towers
  • A Galactus skin will be added soon after the event

As you can see, these would be some truly defining Fortnite changes that cold have serious implications on the game’s future.

Respawn confirm more changes coming to Wraith in Apex Legends Season 8

Apex Legends season 8 will fix up the problems with Wraith.

Published

on

Respawn has been changing up Wraith ever since her debut in Apex Legends. This is because of the various balancing issues that the character has suffered throughout her time in the game. Now, it seems that Season 8 will feature her final shift.

Wraith has gone through many changes throughout her time in Apex Legends. She has a history of being either too powerful or having broken hitboxes, and the developers have to repeatedly “fix” her. She’s still a popular pick for players and that hasn’t changed in Season 7.

Senior game developer Daniel Klein hinted at more changes for Wraith during an interview on the Third Party podcast. They asked him about Respawn’s plans for Season 8 and he jokingly suggested taking Wraith out of Apex Legends altogether.

Then he went on to elaborate on Respawn’s plans to stop tinkering with her kit from this point.

“I don’t want to hit her kit any more,” he said. “We’ve pushed that to the breaking point where it’s barely still fun, but the extremely wind-up on her tactical ⁠— as much as it was necessary ⁠— it puts the ability more into the camp of cerebral power rather than satisfying in the moment power.”

“With Wraith, our approach is going to be very similar to Pathfinder. We’re going to take a look at her hitboxes and see how much wiggle room we have there. With Pathfinder, it turned out that we had so much… that was a 20% increase in hitbox size.”

It’s clear that the devs will focus on fine-tuning her hitboxes by going the same route they did with Pathfinder’s changes in November’s Season 7 update. However, Klein is concerned that they may have nerfed Wraith too much.

He stated that he hopes to be able to buff the Voidwalker after the changes have been implemented but they haven’t started yet.

“Nothing is guaranteed yet, we haven’t started work yet. I’ve asked one of our technical artists to take a look at it. Whenever he gets around to it, we will know more.

“My earnest hope is that we can bring her under control with just hitbox changes, and then maybe even look at ways at making her more in-the-moment fun again, and find a balance point between her tactical now and what it used to be.”

So far there is no certainty that these fixes will be successful in making Wraith more balanced. We do know that things will definitely change when Apex Legends Season 8 comes around and your experience with the character will feel new.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The best RPD Class in Black Ops Cold War

The RPD is a modest and powerful LMG.

Published

on

Here’s the best class for the RPD in Black Ops Cold War.

Among some of the returning weapons from the Black Ops franchise is the RPD light machine gun. It offers decent mobility for a weapon of its class, solid strafe speed, and high power rounds.

YouTuber “Eross” shows us in the video below his loadout of choice with the RPD.

The Setup

  • Barrel: 16.5″ Cut Down – Shorter barrel which reduces overall weapon weight. Adds additional move speed while shooting.
  • Underbarrel: Foregrip – Additional horizontal recoil control when firing.
  • Magazine: Fast Mags – 33% boost to reload speeds. A huge boost to a weapon that’s known to have very long reload times. Best to reload before the mag is fully empty for a shorter reload animation.
  • Handle: Speed Tape – 10% increase on aim down sight time. Can be replaced with GRU Elastic Wrap when unlocked at a later time.
  • Stock: Tactical Stock – 40% boost to aim walking movement speed. Massive for a light machine gun.

Tips for the field

  • Planned attacks – Since movement with light machine guns is sluggish, you’ll want to be well-prepared before you get into gunfights. Be sure to pre aim angles as much as possible. You won’t win gunfights if you aim down sight mid gunfight.
  • Find the high ground – Lay waste to any foe in the middle of a field or just generally not in cover. You conquer anyone who can’t find immediate cover.
  • Objective protection – Since you’re using a light machine gun, you won’t be hopping flags often. You can still play the objective though, with the power of defense. Find a nice piece of cover you can get behind with a good angle of a hardpoint, flag or bomb site to be a powerful objective player.
  • Planned reloads – Reloads are long. Don’t get into a position where you’re low on ammo with enemies coming your way. Reload whenever you have downtime, even if you’re only missing 30 shots. You never know when you’ll need it…
