100 Thieves Kenny pulls off incredible solo ace in Black Ops 4

100 Thieves’ pro Kenny ‘Kenny’ Williams may have come up short with a second-place finish at the 2018 Call of Duty World Championship, but he looks to already be in rare form before the season even starts.

The start of the Black Ops 4 season is still over a month away, but the pro community is still hard at work grinding away in preparation for CWL Vegas in December.

Kenny is no exception to that and during a 4v4 Search & Destroy match, he showed off some of his trademark slaying to win the round for his team.

Playing on Firing Range, Kenny quickly downs one opponent on the A-bombsite before rotating to catch his opponents off-guard.

While his teammates try and figure out what the other team is planning to do, Kenny seems unconcerned, saying “It doesn’t matter, though, I got the spawn.”

Kenny turns out to be completely correct as he picked up two more kills shortly after rotating, causing his teammates to cheer him on in the background.

As if picking up those first three kills weren’t enough on its own, Kenny calmly takes out the final enemy, causing everyone, including himself, to start yelling out “Oh my god!!!” over and over.

If this short clip was any indication of what we can expect from Kenny this season, it looks like 100 Thieves could be in for a solid year.

Warzone dev reveals fix for missing Trick or Treat rewards bug

One of Warzone’s lead developers has responded to the frustrating Trick or Treat rewards bug during the Haunting of Verdansk event, with players not getting the Pumpkin Punisher Grau blueprint after completing all the challenges.

The Haunting of Verdansk is the special Halloween event in Warzone, with lots of new content for players to sink their teeth into.

This includes new Operator packs, including skins from horror films Saw and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, as well as the new Zombie Royale game mode and, of course, the Trick or Treat Rewards.

By searching chests in 16 different locations, players can earn all manner of items from calling cards and emblems to the awesome Cleaver melee blueprint. As a result of unlocking all 16, you’re supposed to get the Grau blueprint weapon, Pumpkin Punisher — but for some people, this isn’t happening.

The Pumpkin Punisher gives a spooky spin on a previous Warzone favorite weapon, the Grau 5.56.

A number of players have reported that even after completing all 16 Trick or Treat challenges and unlocking all the rewards, the Pumpkin Punisher remains locked and isn’t added to their Armory.

One player reported the issue to Joe Cecot, the Co-Design Director of Multiplayer at developer Infinity Ward, and he suggested that the likely issue is the UI thinks players have everything, but they’re actually missing one of the rewards.

To fix this, Cecot offered a workaround, though it might not be particularly fun: he advises players to hit all the locations again and the gun will likely be unlocked, to make sure the game properly registers the completion of every single challenge. He also says that it’s “most likely the location that is still not registered will give candy out of the box.”

Of course, this will be slightly frustrating for players who have not yet unlocked the Pumpkin Punisher, despite having completed all of the relevant tasks.

Cecot did add that in the long run, they’ll “most likely fix people in this state,” though it’s unclear when that could happen, or even if at all.
