Black Ops Cold War: Top plays, best clutches & reactions so far

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War was finally released to the public on November 13. After only a couple of days, we have seen plenty of amazing moments from the world’s best players.

Cold War is the fifth instalment in the Black Ops series and the eighth Call of Duty game developed by Treyarch.

Successful Alpha and Beta events left fans in eager anticipation for the new Call of Duty to be released. Expectations were high for this year’s release and it seems that it’s gone down a treat with players across the globe.

Here are some of the top moments post-release so far that you definitely won’t want to miss:

Snipers take centre stage in our top plays

The snipers in Cold War are popular amongst many players and seem to pack a real punch. Our first top play sees pro player, Dillon “Attach” Price, clutch a 1v3 with just a sniper and a pistol.

The pros have been running riot so far hitting clips left, right and centre. Unsurprisingly, three-time world champion, James “Clayster” Eubanks followed suit with a sniper-only 1v3 of his own.

Our final top play sees FaZe Pamaj wipe out four players during a Search and Destroy in the $25k Atlanta FaZe Cold War Clash. The ease of his triple kill at the end of the clip shows why Pamaj remains one of the best snipers to ever grace the game.

Cold War’s best clutches

With so many to choose from, we could only pick out three of the best clutches so far. First up, Doug “Censor” Martin goes big for his team in a 1v3 against LA Guerillas’ academy team.

Many consider Damon “Karma” Barlow to be the GOAT of Call of Duty. This Search and Destroy clutch against former teammate Ian “Crimsix” Porter and co indicates why.

Brandon “Dashy” Otell never fails to amaze on the sticks. His ability to clutch in almost any circumstance makes him one of the most valuable pros in the league. Here is Dashy pulling off a 1v4 for $800.

The pros react to Cold War

Black Ops Cold War has seen predominantly positive feedback since the release of the full game. Professionals, content creators and even casual players seem to be enjoying Treyarch’s latest creation.

Every year, the professional CoD scene cries out for one thing – ranked play. However, it never seems to be released until months later and when it is, it causes a lot of controversy.

Seth “Scump” Abner was “genuinely confused” when speaking on the matter via Twitter. Will we ever see Call of Duty released with a popular ranked playlist? Who knows!

Top clips from Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Alpha

The Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Alpha has finished and it’s left us with some great clips from players across the globe.

The Cold War Alpha went live from September 18-20th and was only available to play on PS4. However, it won’t be long until you can get your hands on the game again as the Open Beta goes live on October 8th.

You can pre-order a copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War to get early access to the Beta.

Whilst we wait for the Open Beta to arrive, here is a look back at the top clips from the Alpha weekend:

Scump gets his first nuke on Cold War

It didn’t take long for CoD veteran Scump to produce yet another outrageous clip. This time he earned himself one of the first nuclear medals seen in the new game.

Scump went on a 30 kill streak and made it look easy in a game of Kill Confirmed. It will be crazy to see what Scump can do when the full game is released on November 13.

Pamaj and Bloo show us why they’re in FaZe Clan

Pamaj is one of the most well-known snipers in Call of Duty. It seems he’s already getting to grips with Cold War as he hit shot after shot in this game of domination.

FaZe Bloo was another who kept producing clip after clip and is always an exciting player to watch. He is one of the best snipers in Call of Duty and this clip shows us why.

Clayster having fun on the diving board

The diving board on the Miami map has been a feature of many amusing clips during the Alpha. This one sees pro player Clayster getting a two piece whilst jumping up and down on the board.

It’s not the best of clips in regards to gunskill but hilarious nonetheless!

Crimsix goes off with a sub

This clip shows Crimsix doing what he does best – outgunning everyone in his way. This streak with the AK-74u gives us a glimpse of what Crim can do when he hits his peak form.
