Downsights was created in early 2020 by a team of Call of Duty enthusiasts determined to help their fellow players. Whether it's the long-winded battle royale experience or chaotic, quick multiplayer gunfights; whether you're hunting for easter eggs in Zombies mode or looking for loadouts, we've got it all.
Our team, dubbed the 'Red Team,' is responsible for producing all our guides, from top to bottom. We understand that not everything in the game is clear initially, which is why we're here to help new and experienced players alike.
We keep close tabs on everything new in the Call of Duty community as we are fans of the franchise ourselves. Our goal is to provide value to players, so we look for the most pressing community questions rather than making up what to cover in our guides as we go.
Our main objective is to create in-depth walkthroughs and articles for our readers, ensuring every little detail is covered. You won't need to look at any other guide once you've gone through one of ours.
On The Front Lines
We believe in integrity and credibility when it comes to all of our work, and that includes our guides, which are all original. As mentioned before, we are fans of the Call of Duty franchise ourselves, which not only helps us dive into the game and experience everything it offers, but also see first hand what possible challenges would warrant extra explanation.
When our writers tackle our guides they draw on their own in-game experiences, so they know exactly what to look for and what obstacles a player might encounter. Our creators try to be as concise as possible while still providing the bigger picture.
Thanks to our creators being on the front lines, they can relate and create detailed guides with complete instructions, steps by step walkthroughs, and even pre-requirements of any in-game activity. That's how we're confident enough to say you won't need other guides.
We do all the groundwork and research ourselves, too. All the guides are produced in-house, all the way from from playing the game through recording video content and finally writing and editing.
The guide creators and video editors work closely together to ensure that the visuals and the written guides complement each other. The steps you see in the video guide will always align with our website's text guide.
Our guide creators record everything in-game, followed by taking high-resolution original screenshots of all the necessary steps of the subject to complement the written guide. This is especially critical when it comes to our Zombie easter egg guides. Our creators make sure to cover every single puzzle and step as thoroughly as possible.
The guide creators never skip even the "simplest" of the steps as we understand that while a step may be simple for one, it may be completely new for others. We understand this is important with the easter eggs specifically.
While the guide creators work on finishing up the written guide, our video editors are hard at work editing the video guide covering the same subject. Despite having a written guide, our editors ensure to include closed captions to make sense of what's going on in the video. Some players might not be interested in visiting the website, and that is totally fair. They can simply go through the video guide and still understand all the steps.
That's just the tip of the iceberg. As fans of the Call of Duty franchise, we understand how the meta is constantly changing in the game. One day your Grau is the most overpowered weapon, helping you beam enemies across the map, then suddenly you've got double barrel shotguns with dragon breath rounds to one-shot enemies.
The meta never stays the same, and neither does the in-game content. Call of Duty games have taken a live service route and are constantly evolving as we go through their life cycle. We understand this and work hard to ensure our guides are always up to date, reflecting the current state of the game.
Whether the weapon stats have been changed or a new operator has been added, our guides will always be updated to include them all. There's good reason why we cover Call of Duty news on this site too - not just to let our readers know, but to stay in the loop ourselves!
Make sure to stay tuned as we push more content around Call of Duty: Warzone 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, Call of Duty: Zombies, and Multiplayer.
