Accuracy and Rated hit out at Parasite for calling them “bots” on stream

There was plenty of drama to go around the competitive Call of Duty community on March 20, and the latest clash on Twitter involved Splyce’s Lamar ‘Accuracy’ Abedi and Midnight Esports’ Christopher ‘Parasite’ Duarte.

With the community still reeling from the verbal lashing that eUnited’s Jordan ‘JKap’ Kaplan had given James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks on Twitter, Accuracy decided join in on the fun, sending a malicious tweet out at Parasite: “Keep my name out of your mouth you shit can.”

After Parasite spammed a bunch of question marks to express his confusion at the attack, Accuracy came back with an even tougher response.

“You throw shade on stream and are confused as to why I’m confronting you and then wonder why no one fucks with you,” he tweeted. “Win more than two fucking maps at the tournament before you come back talking crazy about any other player.”

While the community was seemingly as confused as Parasite was at what appeared to be a barrage of insults coming out of nowhere, it quickly became apparent the Parasite had talked badly of Accuracy and other players live on his stream.

In a clip taken from his stream, Parasite can be heard saying that players like Accuracy, Red Reserve’s Rated, and UYU’s Parzelion were not as good as their stats would suggest, to put it in mild terms.

“The high K/D, low score per minute, basically those are the guys that don’t do anything for their team, just L-trigger and hope they do things,” he said. “AKA the slugs, the turtles, the bots, the guys that I absolutely fry. People like Parzelion, Rated, Accuracy.”

With the situation a lot more clarified, Parasite and Accuracy, and later Rated, engaged in a war of words, sending insults flying at each other on Twitter.

Accuracy and Rated were trying to make the point that Parasite should not be making such comments considering his recent lack of results, pointing out Midnight’s devastatingly poor performance at CWL Fort Worth. 

Meanwhile, Parasite was essentially saying that these players were not nearly contributing as much as they teammates, and hence their stats and accomplishments are not indicative of their true skill level. 

While the war of words seemed to have ended between the three pro players, it’s unlikely that this drama will end here, especially since Splyce and Midnight are set to square off in the CWL Pro League on April 1.

When will Warzone solos return?

The normal BR Solos are not available in Warzone, with Buy Back Solos and Mini Royale Solos taking its place. When will the normal solo mode come back? Well, here’s what we know.

Ever since Warzone released back in March, a number of different modes have been added alongside the normal quads, trios, and duos modes.

You’ve had things like Juggernaut Royale, Buy Back Quads, and even Zombies Royale to celebrate the spooky Halloween period. However, some players just want the normal battle royale mode that they know and love to be available.

Currently, if you just want to play the normal BR mode – where you hop in, loot, use the gulag if you die, and try to be the last player standing – you can only do so in quads, trios, and duos. It’s not available for solos, and players are asking when it’ll be coming back.

Warzone is full of different modes, not just the normal BR formula.

When will BR Solos return to Warzone?

Well, the answer to that question is… it’s up to Raven Software and Activision. They make the call on when the playlists get updated and when things are rotated in and out.

Currently, solo players can only play Buy Back solos – which takes place in Verdansk – and Mini Royale Solos – which takes place on Rebirth Island. The latter of which was rumored to only be lasting until early January, but we’ve blown past that now.

The next big update that looks to be coming to Black Ops Cold War will drop on February 4 – bringing a new Zombies map with it. That could also see major changes come to Warzone, too. However, if enough players kick up a stink about BR solos still being missing, that could push the devs to change whatever plans they’ve got and bring it back sooner rather than later.

Warzone’s solo mode has become incredibly popular since it was added.

Are Warzone solos gone for good?

Whenever something exits the playlist, some fans immediately ask if it’s been scrapped altogether. And no, that’s rarely ever the case.

While modes like Buy Back and Mini Royale add a nice change of pace, sometimes, you just have to stick with the classic battle royale formula. So, don’t worry too much about it possibly being removed forever. That’s really unlikely to be the case.


So, everything points to us seeing normal solos mode return in the near future, it’s just a matter of when Raven and Activision decide to flip the switch and bring it back.

If anything changes, we’ll keep this post updated so you’ll know when you’ll be getting your fix of normal Warzone solos next.
