Shorty after placing second at the 2019 CWL Championship, 100 Thieves player Preston ‘Priestahh’ Griener and coach James ‘Crowder’ Crowder have quietly rejoined FaZe Clan, as their loans expire.

After FaZe failed to qualify for the CWL Pro League at the start of the Black Ops 4 season, Priestahh was a sought after player, and 100 Thieves just happened to be in the market for a replacement for FeRo.

They also needed a coach, but due to the contracts that both players were under on FaZe, a loan agreement was seen as the best option, and both Priestahh and Crowder moved to 100T on a temporary basis for the remainder of the season.

Twitter: 100 ThievesPriestahh and Crowder helped 100 Thieves to their first ever tournament wins.

Similarly, Dillon ‘Attach’ Price was loaned from FaZe to Evil Geniuses, and announced after the conclusion of Champs that it meant he was officially back with his old organization.

Neither Priestahh nor Crowder made any such announcement, with only a TwitLonger posted by Crowder to thank his now-former organization for the Black Ops 4 season.

On August 21, both players removed 100 Thieves branding from their social media profiles, replacing it with FaZe Clan. Crowder thanked CEO Nadeshot again on Twitter, saying: “our run this year will never be forgotten.”

What’s next for FaZe Call of Duty?

Currently, FaZe Clan is not one of the nine franchise owners announced so far for the 2020 franchise league, but player Matthew ‘Skrapz’ Marshall was told by the organization that there is an “80% chance” they get spot.

FaZe now has a massive roster of players, with the following all contracted at the time of writing: Zer0, Skrapz, ZooMaa, Cellium, Asim, Attach, Priestahh, Crowder, Phantomz, GRVTY, RJ (coach). Crowder has confirmed that he is not the team’s coach.

If FaZe Clan does not purchase a spot in the franchised league, then they will be able to negotiate buyouts for their players, capped at 100% of the player’s salary, if the contract runs into January 2020.

100 Thieves are in a similar situation, as it appears unlikely that they will be acquiring a franchise spot, and so their roster of SlasheR, Octane, Kenny and Enable will perhaps be looking for new homes.

How to glitch outside Nuketown ’84 for free kills in Black Ops Cold War

While Nuketown has appeared in more Call of Duty titles than any other map, the new Black Ops Cold War variant has come with a frustrating issue that allows players to break out of the map.

Nuketown has long been a fan favorite in the CoD franchise. The close-quarters map is chaotic from start to finish as players jump right into the action without having to track enemies down. It’s now in its eighth version, though the new iteration has come with a painful exploit.

If you’ve played on an older version of the map before, you’ll likely know every little nook and cranny. Nuketown ‘84 still has one of these little secrets intact as RC-XD users can race around outside the map on a special path.

Typically, this is a good way to get your explosive buddy across to the other side of the map. It can travel safely and emerge without alerting nearby enemies. However, it turns out players can now access this space as well.

This area has only ever been accessible for the tiny vehicle, until now. Players have discovered a way to break through the traditional boundaries and camp outside of the map for some of the easiest kills you’ll ever see.

From this glitched location, you get a clear line of sight to the side of one of the houses. The most broken part of being here though is that your presence doesn’t have any impact on enemy spawns. They can still appear directly in front of you without realizing, leading to some effortless kills.

Dexerto staff personally encountered this issue while playing on PC. There appears to be a location right at the edge of the playable space that avoids the ‘out of bounds’ instakill effect.

Wedging yourself between some cacti and the fence will keep you alive outside of the map. Obviously, this can be shut down after a few kills once players realize your position. However, it could be too little too late.

Treyarch is yet to address this particular issue. However, something so critical is sure to be fixed in the very near future.

In the meantime, make sure you’re keeping an eye out for pesky enemies well outside the map.
