One of the most exciting new features in Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 is the Omnimovement system. This system has captured significant attention, particularly from the pro-COD community, which is cautious about its inclusion in CDL and ranked play.

If you're curious about the pros' opinions on the Omnimovement feature in Black Ops 6, as well as its impact on Warzone multiplayer and ranked games, keep reading to find out all the details.

Call of Duty Pros Are Tentative About the Black Ops 6 Omnimovement Being in Ranked Play

We've already covered the inclusion of the new Omnimovement system across both Black Ops 6 and Warzone. With this system becoming the standard movement in these titles, it's understandable that pro players have some concerns.

In the CDL and Ranked Play, professional rules often ban certain equipment (like Claymores and RPGs) and mechanics (such as auto Tac Sprint) through gentlemen's agreements, or GAs, as they are known in the community, and it appears that players are already considering a GA to ban Omnimovement.

As Thomas "Scrappy" Ernst mentioned in a recent stream, "I don't want you guys to get your hopes up by this Omnimovement. That sh*t is probably getting GA'd, let's be real. It depends [on] how broken it is. It'll either get GA'd or it won't be that good to where pros won't want to use it."

This indicates that the pro side of the ranked and competitive COD scene is on the fence about Omnimovement. Since it hasn't been widely tested yet, its impact on game balance is uncertain. However, based on what they know so far, it's likely to be GA'd if it disrupts the game's balance. This is similar to how the Snipers, which played "horribly" according to Scrappy, were eventually banned from ranked and CDL games.

Of course, we don't know for sure how the community will respond to Omnimovement when it is released and how the rules for competitive games will adapt. But as always, we will keep you updated with more details on Omnimovement in the pro-play scene of Call of Duty.
