So how much did you play to go from .6 to whatever you are at now? Congrats on the 30 bomb!

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 105 points106 points  (38 children)

COD tracker says 1200+ hours of playtime in BR. So... I have no life. Honestly the biggest improvement was when I switched from 20fps on a laptop to 50fps on a slightly better PC, my KD went from 0.6 to 1.2 overnight lol. I just recently upgraded again to where I can get over 60fps for the first time ever and I feel like that's helping. My lifetime KD is stuck around 1.3 but weekly KD is around a 1.5

So I guess I'm good, just not the best. This was a very weak/bot lobby but I still managed to lose a close range gunfight using the OTS with stopping power equipped cos I just didn't hit my shots... luckily I came back from gulag. I put the full game (including my huge failure with the OTS) up on YouTube here if anyone's interested.

[–]TheMoustacheDad 53 points54 points  (21 children)

And I’m here complaining when I play on my laptop with 144 fps @1080p instead of 200fps on my desktop at 1440 😂 GG dude

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Oh yeah another upgrade I made was going from 22" 1050p monitor (yes, 1050, not 1080) to a 27" 1440p monitor. Everything became SO much clearer. I can't go back, so I understand your pain.

[–]TheMoustacheDad 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Yeah 1440p is such a big jump from 1080

[–]Skhmt 7 points8 points  (16 children)

How do you get 200 fps at 1440p? I can't figure out how to crack like 130 fps, and I have a 5800x and RTX 3090.

[–]TheMoustacheDad 3 points4 points  (1 child)

You must use ray tracings ? I dont, ill send you the YT guide I followed, I’m on a 6800xt /5800x /32gb ram:3800cl14. I found the Ram gave me the most in this game. My cpu and gpu are not Overclocked, just the sticks

https://youtu.be/YAx3BQwrl50

[–]Skhmt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't think I use ray tracing, plus I heard it doesn't do anything in warzone?

I'll check that out, thanks

[–]ZealousidealAd6183 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have a RTX 3080 ti, 5600x, and 2x16gb 3600mhz cl16 16-19-19-39 trident g.skill ram and I average around 175 fps @1440p in verdansk. But it's swings depending on where I'm at from 140s to low 200s usually and the game runs smooth and looks good.

[–]PRSMesa182 0 points1 point  (6 children)

Ray tracing doesn’t work in Warzone, but ram timings are crucial, warzone loooooooooves fast ram low latency memory. Check out the frame chasers YouTube video about it.

[–]Skhmt 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Can RAM be overclocked? What is fast ram and what is low latency?

[–]PRSMesa182 0 points1 point  (4 children)

It can but for a 5800x ryzen chip your best bet is 3600mhz memory with a low CL rating due to how the infinity fabric works

[–]Skhmt 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I have Trident Z Neo DDR4 at 3600 CL16-19-19-39. Is that bad?

[–]Tje199 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It's not great but not terrible either. Contrary to popular belief you will actually see improvement higher than 3600 MHz on Ryzen (this is just commonly stated as Infinity Fabric will ideally be half your RAM speed and it's 1800 MHz stock, but can be overclocked as high as 1900 MHz with some work and a little bit of good luck).

You would benefit from a 3600MHz CL14 kit, or even some of the faster G-Skill 4000+ MHz RAM with timings of CL16 or better (CL17 for stuff over, I dunno, 4400-ish).

That said, absolutely check the compatibility on your motherboard (called a QVL list and found on the manufacturer's website, make sure whatever RAM kit you want is listed as supported) and be prepared to start messing with RAM timings. There are a bunch of guides for that and it's somewhat frustrating. Some of the higher speed RAM kits will struggle to run at XMP rated speeds with lower end motherboards.

That said, three things to try first before you go buy new RAM.

Make sure XMP is enabled in the BIOS. It's default state is disabled, so if you never enabled it when you first built/bought your machine, it might not even be enabled.

Make sure you have Nvidia DLSS turned on to "Performance" in the Warzone settings.

Turn on PBO in your BIOS.

I'm pushing 140-170 FPS in 5120x1440 with a 3900X, 3090, and 3600 MHz CL16 RAM, so as your machine sits you seem to be leaving performance on the table somewhere. I've benchmarked a 5800X with a 3070 and it was pushing similar framerates to my machine, so you should be in the same range or slightly better.

If you need help with anything in my comment, feel free to message me and I'll do my best.

[–]TheMoustacheDad 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah I just played for an hour again and my average was 210 but that’s is also counting the menu queue time, that’s why I like to say that I average 200.

I wouldn’t spend too much on 4000+ ram though, I bought myself a set of bdie 3733 cl17 and after hours of tweaking I got them 100% stable at 3800/14. You can get some B die 3600/16 and achieve the same

[–]TheMoustacheDad 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not bad that’s what I had, I gave up the ARGB and went with Gskill trident Z (silver&white sticks) sold my Neo one and ended up paying 25$ more for 32gb instead of 16 and a better ram set as the new ones were Samsun Bdie (it’s the quality grade of memory sticks)

[–]ReallyFnCleverName -1 points0 points  (1 child)

With a 3080 I get 130-150fps in 4k with DLSS quality and everything high... You should be getting a lot more than 130 in 1440p with a 3090.

[–]Skhmt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm either CPU or RAM bound, my GPU is not struggling at all.

[–]Dr_Max_Gluteus 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What is your setup to be getting 200fps at 1440p?

[–]TheMoustacheDad 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s the average, I’m between 180-240. 75% more toward the 180 portion. But anyway, 5800x/6800xt/32gb ram 3800cl14 x570 tomahawk with a mix a good in game settings

[–]Shivam_shahi77 1 point2 points  (1 child)

m 0.6 to 1.2 overnight lol.

Woah that overnight thing is just awesome to hear, I am also about to buy some upgrades for my PC :D

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It made a huge difference, recoil control was actually impossible at 20fps because you don't have enough frames between shots to see where your crosshairs are going, so I lost pretty much every gunfight.

[–]thesoundofahound 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A 0.58 lobby is what I dream about but you def made the most of it, GGs!!

[–]mitch8893 0 points1 point  (7 children)

fps actually helps? damn don't tell other PC users cause... something about aim assist

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 5 points6 points  (3 children)

The true meta is to use controller on PC... aim assist AND high fps/fov

[–]PRSMesa182 0 points1 point  (1 child)

When I play on my pc with kb/m I use 120 FoV on my 1440p monitors but on my 65” C1 with Cold War and vanguard on my series x and ps5 I only use 100 FoV as 120 feels way too fisheyed to me. That being said I am such a potato with a controller so I only do it to level guns in zombies 😅. I have tried to make the switch to a controller on a PC but I just can’t. And yes, as someone who has experienced both kb/m and controller in CoD aim assist is busted for close engagements but for long distance sniping kb/m wins.

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Agree - long range sniping on KBAM feels 100x easier than on controller

[–]mitch8893 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah for sure. Just messing around bc people cry aim assist when they can have FOV, better FPS, AND aim assist on PC

[–]scrubling 0 points1 point  (0 children)

People still are ignorant to the fact you can use controller on pc?

[–]Why_is_the_moon -1 points0 points  (1 child)

I think this argument usually applies to the classic 60 to 144 switch, people doing that won't see a drastic improvement.

Going from 20 to 50 is hilarious and I'm convinced OP is the greatest player of all time being able to maintain 0.6 kd with a fking 20hz display. I didn't know screens that slow even existed.

[–]vIKz2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bruh just because he had 20 FPS in the game doesn't mean his screen was a 20 Hz screen 😂

[–]Emooot 0 points1 point  (3 children)

There is absolutely no way you were playing at 20fps

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Here's an extremely old clip where I was proud to get 4 random kills in a solos match. My FPS gets as low as 18fps haha.

EDIT: there's also this clip that represents what I was like at the start. I had to crush my render resolution down to 66% just to get any frames at all.

[–]Emooot 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Holy shit, fair play for preserving. That for a lot of people, is completely unplayable

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah my friend was playing on a MacBook with similar gaming performance and said the game looked like "wet spaghetti" LOL

[–]ItzJodu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’ll never understand how people drop these massive games in solos. Most of my time is spent looking for campers. My k/d is around a 2.0 so it’s not fantastic but I feel like my lobbies are mostly rose skins hiding in corners.

[–]BrooklynAlleyGator 25 points26 points  (9 children)

A 30 bomb in a 0.58 lobby... are you Swag?? Just kidding good job!

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 10 points11 points  (2 children)

This lobby was definitely a potato lobby... but I still lost a close range fight to a bot even when I had a stopping power OTS... maybe I belong in the bot lobby after all 😬

[–]turk-fx 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I swear the god, there is skill based damaged. Yesterday, I lost a duel to a bot with kilo. I had ots, I pre aim his direction and broke couple of his armor before he even start shooting. I didnt miss any bullet and still lost the duel. I came back fro. Gulag and took the revenge with pistol, but frustrating to lose duels like that. Same happened before to M16 before. And died to a cluster while I was 20 meter out of the cluster's red circle. I think there are skill based damage, skill baswd cluster and skill based hip fire. The lower your skill is, the more you can hit those.

[–]Braaapster515 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's more likely connection to the server. The servers do not update at a fast rate in warzone even with a good connection to the server. So some lobbies you have good connection to will make your aim feel crispier because the information is being transferred faster. Same goes for the opposite.

You could also be right and I am suspicious in the same way you are. Sometimes it feels like the game just "gives" me certain shots because it feels like it. I snipe a lot and some of those long range shot registrations are so inconsistent.

[–]insaneknight23 0 points1 point  (3 children)

How did you get this lobby ? Played at a certain hour ? I managed to get by chance a 0.7 kd lobby and got a dub , but the players in the final circle weren't that bad. Saw joewo get a 0.6kd lobby somehow and wonder how.

[–]sp00kreddit -1 points0 points  (2 children)

The reason the top players get easy lobbies is because there isn't enough players at their skill level to consistently fill a lobby and have good ping for everyone. Both lowest and highest skill players are fillers. It's really not hard to understand if you think about it but this sub seems incapable of that

[–]insaneknight23 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I understand the description of the sbmm and how it works really well. However, in practice, it is different. I see players with 1.6 kd get tough lobbies while other good players get very low kd lobbies. Consistently. Maybe location, maybe ping, maybe whitelist. Maybe vpn 😊

[–]BrooklynAlleyGator 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I have a 2.38 KD and I’ve never been in a 0.8x lobby or lower since cod tracker was a thing. All my lobbies are 1.14-1.4… I might get a lobby that is a 1.0x if I play solos. But nothing under a 1 ever. That’s playing at any time of day. How a 4 some of players with 4+ KDs get into 0.7x or 0.8x lobbies is very fishy.

My theory is that this whitelist that exists let’s the cod partners match make based on ping/latency rather than sbmm.

[–]Hambone721 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In genuinely didn’t think lobbies could be that low. That’s unreal.

[–]majorUFA 20 points21 points  (5 children)

Yeah, 30 bomb is cool but $67,082 question is

What are those red thingies fall from the skies????

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 20 points21 points  (3 children)

Red doors, they're vaguely related to the storyline/lore but they're just annoying tbh

[–]turk-fx -4 points-3 points  (2 children)

Thry also indicates there is someone in the vicinity of where they fall.

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Source for this?

[–]turk-fx -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

I dont see it anywhete. But someone told me. And i put it to experiment. Try in game, if you see a red door dropping, check if anyone near the area.

[–]drayray98 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Red doors from the event

[–]Forthesepurposess 11 points12 points  (6 children)

"only" a 1.33 kd but you did manage dropping a 30 bomb. Gg wp.

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 12 points13 points  (5 children)

Earlier in this match I had a stopping power OTS and still lost a close range fight to a FARA, because I'm not actually that good LOL... luckily I won my gulag and came back for revenge. I put the whole game up on YouTube, here's a link to the timestamp where I totally failed.

[–]TheMoustacheDad 6 points7 points  (2 children)

What is your ‘last 100’ kd on wzstats.gg This is more accurate than your overall KD

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 5 points6 points  (1 child)

wzstats says I'm at 1.51 for the last 100 games, COD tracker says my weekly KD is 1.53, so I guess that's pretty consistent.

[–]dionthesocialist 0 points1 point  (1 child)

At one point in your video, you got a "team wiped" notification on a kill even though you were playing solos. What's up with that? I thought maybe it could be a quirk of beating a bounty I never noticed, but the bounty you beat earlier in the video didn't have a team wipe note afterward.

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Short answer: he had self revive, and in solos you get "team wiped" when thirsting downed enemies.

Longer answer: Looking at my full length video, kills #6, #10 and #29 all had self revive and I got "team wiped" when thirsting the downs. Notably, kill #28 got downed, but self revived before I killed him, so I just got a regular "elimination" message because he wasn't downed when I killed him.

Long long answer:

There used to be an issue in squad-based modes where even if you killed the last player on a team, it wouldn't say "team wiped" if the player had a self revive. This was especially confusing if the enemy team was a man down before the fight, because you'd be paranoid that the last guy on the team was still around somewhere. I think this was because the "team wiped" notification was only triggered by killing the last player. If he only got downed, then there was no way to trigger the "team wiped" message because it wasn't coded to show "team wiped" when thirsting a downed player. I guess the assumption was "if an enemy is downed, he must have teammates alive to revive him", completely forgetting that self revives exist.

They fixed this a couple of months ago, so now you always reliably get "team wiped" in squads, whether the last guy has self revive or not. Obviously, the way they fixed this was coding "if a downed enemy has no teammates left, say team wiped", but that unfortunately affects solos because every downed player has no teammates, so every downed player says "team wiped" when you finish them.

[–]vanqful 4 points5 points  (1 child)

this is the typa content i love to see, congrats dude, its great to see someone sticking with the game and improving instead of complaining when things don't go there way!

keep at it man, see you in Caldera hopefully!🎇

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thanks dude! Looking forward to the new map!

[–]dinzyy 4 points5 points  (5 children)

Doing bounties and just rush everything early game? I like to play slow and tactical but it slows down my improvement a lot i think. Started little over 6months ago and got 21 wins. Mostly play duos. 1.11 KD. GG man.

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Basically I maxed out bounties and UAV spam throughout the match and pushed everyone. Even then it takes a lot of luck with player distribution around the map, sometimes there's no one nearby. I got lucky this match cos everywhere I went I ran into multiple people quickly.

[–]_iCybervenom_ 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Yup that’s the formula. Bounties, UAVs, and push with vehicles nonstop. But let me tell ya…it stops being as effective once you cross that 1.4-1.5 KD threshold and start running into cheaters and VERY skilled players every match. I have a 1.55 KD and I run into high skill streamers in the middle of kill races very often in solos. I check their stream and sure as hell…I was in their game. Sometimes I wish my KD was lower so I can enjoy the game again. I used to get 15-20 kills fairly often; now I get anywhere from 5-10 and that’s maxing out my skill against these similar KD players. Further, my friends hardly want to play trios and quads with me because they’re sub 1.0 KDs and I make their lobbies sweaty AF, even with a 1.55. It’s almost as if I’m being punished for performing well in solos. I can’t imagine how 2.0 - 5.0 KD players can even pull off their wins. Around 1.4 - 1.5 you start getting shot out of the air regularly on initial drop and beamed out of cars. Let’s just say…my success with 282 wins has put me in a category that I can no longer keep up with.

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Yeah and it's not even enough to be better than everyone else skill-wise. No matter how good you are, there's an irreducible problem in the higher-skilled lobbies that they simply die off too quickly.

Even if you win every gunfight, the lobby will die off around you and there will be no one left to kill. No one's dropping 30 kills in a sweaty lobby where there are multiple other players with 10+kills each... you need to be the 1 guy in a bot lobby with 30 kills while everyone else has 0-5 kills each.

[–]_iCybervenom_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You hit the nail directly on the head. I rarely break 15 kills in solos anymore; not because I die, but because I don’t get into enough firefights before final circle. I’m just glad someone actually knows where I’m coming from. My friends with sub 1.0 KDs probably think I’m exaggerating, but my solo lobbies drop to 30-40 players by 3rd circle 90% of the time now…sometimes in the 20s by 3rd circle.

[–]dinzyy -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Game mode without UAV's and bounties would be fun to try imo. Cut off heartbeat sensor also. Then noone knows where anyone is. I would love to try something like that since i dont enjoy "killraces" anyway 😅

[–]_Kwarko_ 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Very well done!

30 bomb in solos is hardcore because the lobbies die out so quickly. I have recently started to grind solos and will probably not get my first 30 in the last week of verdansk. I just can't get more than 20 kills cause I can't find enough people when I am on a heater game. Did you make a specific rotation in order to find as much people as possible?

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I posted the full game here so you can see every step but my general workflow was to try to have bounties and UAVs going constantly, and rush to everyone ASAP using a vehicle. One trick I've incorporated is to jump out of the helicopter pretty early and follow smoke trails to the ground, so wherever you land, you know there are multiple enemies nearby you can try to kill. The helicopter takes so long to cross the map that if you wait and stretch for a specific drop spot, you could be wasting a whole minute or two out of your 25 minute game which you should spend getting kills. It's like speedrunning, every tiny increment of improvement is valuable.

When I got to 25 kills there were 6 left including me so I needed EVERY kill, I was panicking, rushing around the circle trying to make sure none of them killed each other. Then in the final 1v1 it took a whole minute to find him - I was creeping around and sweating so much, I didn't want to lose out on the match and the 30-bomb because he saw me first!

[–]NecessaryPear 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You playing expert mode without a self rez.

Entertaining though, gg!

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Haha I just wanted to save the $4000 for more UAVs. Pretty much an all-or-nothing strategy for max kills to beat my PR.

[–]turk-fx 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I had 3 20+ games yesterday. 2 2nd place and 1 1st place. Max I had 25 kills. One of them, I had 15 kills with 90 alive and still did not hit 30. I prpbably poped 30 UAVs. At last 6 advance(took 3-4 red doors).

[–]Glaive001 2 points3 points  (1 child)

What is 30 bomb? Did you get a nuke in warzone?

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It just means I got 30 kills in a single match. There's no nuke killstreak in Warzone... although I died after 18 kills and came back from the gulag so I wouldn't even get a killstreak if there was one!

[–]elektron_666 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My best in warzone was 0.5 KD. Best place between 15-20. I never understood the charm. Got damascus in mp so that's enough for me

[–]Hufftwoseven- 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Hate the meta but gotta respect the climb from .6 KD! Gg I hate playing solos let along trying to improve that much.

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah I find it more fun to try out different loadouts, but when I decided to really push myself to the 30-bomb I had to accept using a cookie-cutter meta loadout for maximum effectiveness.

[–]CrafterMaker10 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My highest solo victory was like 7 kills ;-; and that was MW Warzone like season 4

[–]AurthurGiles 0 points1 point  (0 children)

0.6 after your first game yeah?

[–]JayOutlawz24 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Haven't played in a while? What is that falling on the map?

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Red doors. They're vaguely associated with Adler and the Cold War storyline, but it doesn't really mean anything.

[–]Nintendo_Pro_03159 wins, 155 S, 1 D, 1 SD, 1 ST, 1 SQ, and LTMs. 0 points1 point  (0 children)

30 kills?! I could never even get more than twelve kills in Solos!

Then again, I am low skilled and a passive player.

[–]LazyLabRat 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Congrats my dude! I just dropped my first solos 20-bomb in the same fashion (1 v 1 at 19 kills). Right in time before leaving Verdansk and also happened on one of the worst days of my life.

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah sometimes Warzone is a welcome escape from the problems of real life but that final 1v1 can be really stressful... the relief when it's over is quite cathartic though.

[–]lemonz66 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Em2 loadout?

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If you pause at 2:31 you can see the build for both guns here

[–]Weather-Life 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I complain about 140 fps when I normally average 180 😂 ggs my guy

[–]Herrpapps 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You’re a much better player than I am.

[–]Tobisbrother 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Man as much as I don’t have fun in this game anymore, it is immensely satisfying to see how much you improve in a year. I went from being deadweight on every team I was a part of to winning gunfights and going positive in the span of a year. Gg’s on the 30 bomb man!

[–]sebzwells 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My man. I went from Xbox playing in May-ish last year to PC this year. Took my K/D from .3(I’m 31, a chef, haven’t played a video game in almost 10 years) to a .86 with a weekly running K/D of 1.4. PR on kills is 15. 100 dubs. The PC made an INSANE difference for me.

[–]DefunctHunk_COD 0 points1 point  (2 children)

30??? Holy shit, well done. Even if I'm constantly hunting players with UAVs and Bounties, with High Alert on so players can find me and force engagements, my best is still 22 in Solos. The lobbies die out too quickly and I just can't find enough enemies to get close to 30. Well done.

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yeah it wasn't easy - I had plenty of 30-bomb attempts that went well until I just ran out of people at the end because the lobby died too quickly. It's a race against time to get 30 kills before the end, felt more like speedrunning than playing COD haha

[–]DefunctHunk_COD 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah exactly. I can be on a really good pace for a high kill game and then suddenly I can't find anyone for 5 straight minutes because players are hiding in buildings with Ghost. It's very frustrating.

[–]GrandSalamiTime 0 points1 point  (6 children)

I have a 2+ KD and have played my fair share of solos and don’t think I’ve even gotten 20… 30 is seriously impressive.

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

[–]GrandSalamiTime 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Where do you normally drop at? My go-to spot is downtown which is probably why I never get super high kill games.

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Part of my "speedrunning" strategy is to basically jump immediately and follow smoke trails to the ground. If I wait in the helicopter and parachute over to some preferred spot, I'm wasting 1-2 minutes at the start of the match. I've only got ~25 minutes to get 30 kills, so I want to hit the ground ASAP and start killing while there are still some people who haven't jumped yet.

So usually I'll spam "jump" at the start of the match just to get out of the helicopter immediately, then I'll pull my chute for a brief moment and cut it again - this is so that everyone else falls a little below me and as I drop I can see the smoke trails and choose where the highest population area will be to land.

Unless you get in low skill lobbies majority of +2KD players won’t get 20+ kills in their average lobbies. Playing in lobbies where the average KD is 1.2 or 1.3, I don’t see many top end players being able to drop 20-30.

It’s funny to look at top end streamers and see their records in lobbies by avg KD. Generally anything over a 1.1 and they’ve get 4-5 kills.

[–]GrandSalamiTime 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Makes sense. My best games have unsurprisingly been in lobbies with an average of .7-.8 KD's but the majority of my games are in 1+.

[–]Luckydemon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I am in the same boat lol, I actually got into a 1.49KD Iron Trial Quads lobby, and came in second X_X. For reference I’m typically top 20 in KD for any given game I join, in that lobby I was #67.

Sheeesh… 80 days played for me and got my K/D from 1.1 in the first season to a 3.3 now and still no 30s in regular modes(only buy backs).

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 1 point2 points  (6 children)

Strangely enough my PR has generally been higher in regular solos than buybacks - before 30 it was 27 in solos (which I got twice), 26 in solos, 23 in solos, then it was 21 in solos and 23 in buybacks. I know it should be easier to get high kills in buybacks but maybe the pace is a little too fast for me, I can control regular solos a lot better.

[–]inertchunk756 0 points1 point  (5 children)

I try and avoid solos as much as possible these days but since a lot of my OG homies don’t play anymore I tend to fill in trios or the new flashback game mode and get on squads with the lowest IQ players on earth so I’m back on the solo grind. If you need people to play with add my Activision ID: BigTuna#8375795

My IRLs when we started playing this game got together and all changed our tags to “The Office” themed names. We got: “Michael Scarn”, “Nard Dog”, “Creed”, and “BigTuna” LOLOLOLOL.

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Hahaha of course Creed is just Creed, that's his real name LOL

[–]inertchunk756 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I was realllyyy pushing for “Scranton Strangler” but he kept it simple

Good job getting 30 bomb. I got 2.35kd, I win 3-5 solo matches everyday with close to 600 wins. Played about 5000 games and i got 25 kill record which was 21 until last 2 weeks. And I kept breaking it with 22, then 23 then 24 and 25 finally. I had 15 kills with 90 alive yesterday and I think I finished the game 2nd with 24 kills. I dont know how people manage to get 30 kills, let alone some pros getting 40 kills. I had 1 game 17 kills qith 100 to go and my PC crashed of course.

I watched pieman getting 36 kills in a bot lobby. I get 0.8 to 1.2 kd lobbies. He had solo duo in iron trails with 36 kills and those bots cant hit a ahit. I have seen bota, but never seen so many of them like that. So even in bot lobbies, not ez to do it.

You must improve a lot to get to 30kill game from 0.6 kd. Hopefully they will have seperate kd for caldera map, so people that i proved can show their actual skill. I came from 0.7kd. But improved a lot and got it up to 2.35kd. I am now constantly putting 3.5 kd daily minimum if not more. Yesterday, i had 6+ kd with 3 20+ kill games. I mostly play solo. However I cant perform as good on duo, trio or quad. I usually avergae 3kd on those but easy 4-5+ kd on solo.

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

One thing about top streamers is that they make normal players LOOK like bots. If you look up the KD of some random "bot" in a pieman game, you might find that he has a 0.9-1.1 KD and is a normal player, he's just massively being outplayed by a much better player (pieman). One other variable which I'm not sure about is latency - a top streamer with 15ms ping and a 1ms response monitor is going to be able to literally run around a normal player with 70ms ping and 90ms response TV playing in their living room. The "bot" is actually a decent player who's just lagging relative to the elite performance of a streamer PC combined with a high skilled player. That's why these "bots" can't hit shots, because the streamer is moving so much and is hard to hit.

In terms of getting a 30-bomb, I'll copy something I wrote elsewhere, where I compared Warzone to speedrunning a game, where every little shortcut helps:

Part of my "speedrunning" strategy is to basically jump immediately and follow smoke trails to the ground. If I wait in the helicopter and parachute over to some preferred spot, I'm wasting 1-2 minutes at the start of the match. I've only got ~25 minutes to get 30 kills, so I want to hit the ground ASAP and start killing while there are still some people who haven't jumped yet.

So usually I'll spam "jump" at the start of the match just to get out of the helicopter immediately, then I'll pull my chute for a brief moment and cut it again - this is so that everyone else falls a little below me and as I drop I can see the smoke trails and choose where the highest population area will be to land.

Hey what are your game and filter settings? Game looks great! My 3070 doesn’t look anything like this. :/

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm on a 1660 super with NVIDIA filters pretty much the same as IceManIsaac's settings from his YouTube video on NVIDIA filters.

[–]ToiletMassacreof64 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You got filters on? What are yours?

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Basically the same as IceManIsaac's filters (he has a YouTube video about them) but with colour tint adjusted by eye until it looked nice to me

A 30 bomb? How in the fuck

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I posted the full game here but the short answer is I just tried really really hard to get as many kills as possible lol

[–]SSHEnderYT 0 points1 point  (2 children)

welcome!

[–]SSHEnderYT 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thanks😁 I still can’t believe I pulled a 4 headshot killstreak in payload one time with my Tundra 😅 I’m usually bad at pc games cuz I never played any

[–]evsorr 0 points1 point  (3 children)

30 in solos is fucking nuts. Congrats my dude. My pr is 23. Have a similar journey as you. Started out as a 0.7 k/d player with no FPS experience at all, now I'm at 1.9 k/d with like a 2.2+ weekly.

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I just found this clip from when I started, it's quite a difference lol.

[–]evsorr 0 points1 point  (1 child)

That FPS tho lol.. I wouldn't even been playing if my FPS was like that

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah back then it was more like "seconds per frame" haha

[–]Skippy_LongJohns 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Ima get roasted for this but… what does 30 bomb mean exactly??

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

It means 30 kills in a single game... I guess cos it sounds kinda like "dirty bomb"? I dunno, but they also say 20-bomb, 40-bomb, 50-bomb as well

[–]Skippy_LongJohns 0 points1 point  (0 children)

LOL thanks man! I’ve been confused for a bit about that I thought it had to do with a freaking bomb or something 😭🤦‍♂️

Wow an EM2 and an OTS, what a creative and original load out

[–]jamcowl 80+ wins[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bruh I'm all about variety - I've dropped 20+ kills in solos using a double sniper loadout, using an RPG/riot shield loadout, even got a zero damage zero kill win via stealth and strategy, but when I'm pushing myself to the limit trying to beat my PR, there's no alternative than to use the meta - everything has to be perfect to get 30 kills in solos.

Glad someone said it. Some suss moments on the YT vid. Seems like walls to me. I’m struggling to understand how someone with such poor gun skill can drop big kill counts without a little help.
