Update: It looks like some of the rumors have turned out to be true as Splyce announced on June 3 that Nick ‘Nolson’ Nolson will be promoted to the starting lineup in place of Accuracy.

Fans on the platform were thrilled to hear the promising talent was going to get a chance on the main lineup. While this cements Nolson’s place on the team, there have still been questions of what the move means for Gunless and Splyce.

Splyce’s Lamar ‘Accuracy’ Abedi has commented on rumors that he is being benched to make way for the eventual signing of Pierce ‘Gunless’ Hillman, as speculation continues to swirl regarding his future with the organization.

Accuracy has been a part of Splyce since the beginning of the Black Ops 4 season, in which the team was widely viewed as one of the most talented rosters in the game.

After second and third place finishes at CWL Fort Worth and Las Vegas respectively, the team hit a rough patch of form, and it appears that their recent struggles have forced the organization’s hand into making a roster change.

Gunless has been linked with a possible move to Splyce.

The former Team Kaliber player tweeted on Sunday, June 2 that he was heading back to California, Los Angeles, despite his team scheduled to take part in Division B Pro League matches on June 4 in Columbus, Ohio.

Taking his place will be substitute Nolson. Earlier, a tweet from Joshua-Lee ‘Joshh’ Sheppard also appeared to hint at the move, announcing that David ‘Dqvee’ Davies would be joining their CWL Anaheim lineup, wishing original member Nolson “good luck in what’s next for him.”

Joshh also made use of a popular clip from the Fast and Furious movie franchise, which shows two cars speeding off in different directions, further teasing that their time playing together has come to an end.

Some fans believe that this switch is being made so that Ulysses ‘AquA’ Silva can grow accustomed to the ICR ahead of the possible acquisition of Pierce ‘Gunless’ Hillman, who was removed from Luminosity’s starting lineup.

Accuracy himself denies this is the case, responding to a comment on Reddit that suggested the team were definitely picking up Gunless by writing: “Wrong, my brother.”

Comment from discussion Accuracy dropped?.

Following a strong start in the CWL Pro League, Splyce have now lost 5 of their last 7 matches in the tournament, and finished 9th – 12th at CWL London in May. The team still sits in a playoff position, but their current record of seven wins and eight losses is a far cry from the dominance they showed earlier in the season.

Gunless and Luminosity also hit a rough patch in the league, but most agree that he wasn’t the major factor in their poor performances, and is still seen as one of the best Call of Duty players in the world. Should they be in the market for the Luminosity player, Splyce will have to wait CWL Anaheim ends on June 17, as no transfers between organizations can be made until after the tournament. 

Nolson now looks set to make his 2019 Pro League debut on June 4 against Team Envy, who would leapfrog Splyce into fourth should they beat them. Matches against Heretics and 100 Thieves round out a difficult week for the team.

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.
