Coming hot off a 3-1 victory over Heretics in the CWL Pro League, Team Envy captain Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price took a dig at his former teammate Anthony ‘NAMELESS’ Wheeler, now sitting on the analyst desk.

The pair last teamed together under Evil Geniuses, in the first half of the CoD: WWII season, but after being dropped from the team, NAMELESS effectively retired.

Meanwhile, with their new roster, ACHES went on to win the 2018 Call of Duty World Championship – his second in his long career.

On Twitter, NAMELESS had been particularly critical of Envy’s role changes, suggesting Price had “swindled” his teammates so he could run his preferred weapon.

After hearing NAMELESS’ suggestions and criticism, the two-time world champion took his chance in the post match interview to silence Wheeler.

“I put this guy on the desk, won a world championship,” ACHES said mockingly, “so, I’m not worried about it, this guy doesn’t know what he’s talking about.”

As NAMELESS began to beckon inaudibly from the desk, ACHES simply dismissed his ramblings, concluding “the guy’s insane.”

After the broadcast returned to the analyst desk, NAMELESS got in the last word, claiming “he’s going to up here with me soon, we’re going to have a five person desk.”

Despite his jokes, ACHES and Envy don’t look like they’re planning on retirement any time soon. Their current record in the Pro League is only narrowly missing out on playoff contention, holding the same 7-6 record as 4th place Splyce.

Their next match, against 100 Thieves, will likely be their most challenging yet though, and ACHES will need to carry his confidence from the Heretics match through their remaining fixtures, if they are to secure top four.

After the Black Ops Cold War Beta was available on PC, data-miners and hackers scoured through the game’s code to find hidden features, and some of them have seemingly stumbled upon a usable/playable version of a classic Call of Duty sniper rifle – the Barret .50 cal.

Unfortunately, with a little bit less than 24 hours to go, the Black Ops Cold War Beta is almost over. While most people spent the weekend knee-deep in the game’s base weapons, maps, modes, etc., many PC data-miners were enjoying everything the pre-release version had to offer that was hidden in the game’s coding.

Throughout the weekend, many players were leaking parts of the game’s code that referred to a number of unreleased features. While most of them were obviously left-over assets from Black Ops 4 or, at the very least, unsubstantiated pieces of data, there seems to be a classic sniper coming to the game.

A Black Ops Cold War Beta mod video from YouTuber Andrew2007 seems to show the Barrett .50 cal, a fan-favorite sniper rifle from several previous Call of Duty title, as a part of the game, although it appears that the gun is named ‘Barret M82’ for BOCW.

As can be seen in the video below, the weapon isn’t done, as there are no firing and reloading sound associated with the weapon. There isn’t even a scope texture, with a white square taking its place. This makes sense, as unreleased weapons generally don’t have all the assets associated with them attached until much closer to release.

For those confused as to why the rifle is firing at such a high rate, this is due to the mods that the user installed for the game. The actual Barret will certainly not function that way if and when it gets fully released.

Speaking of which, it’s also entirely possible that the video is fake and that the YouTuber simply modded the weapon into the game. Still, it looks pretty convincing, and given the fact that other prominent leak pages like leaker ModerWarzone have corroborated, its existence seems more likely than not.

The inclusion of the Barrett 50 cal is certainly a welcome one. The gun was featured in CoD 4: Modern Warfare, MW2, MW3, and even Black Ops 2’s story campaign. A variant of it was also featured in Modern Warfare (2019) but it was titled the Rytec AMR and featured some differences from the original.

Activision
The Barrett 50 cal sniper has been featured in multiple Call of Duty games including every entry of the Modern Warfare series.

What’s most likely to happen with this gun, judging from the fact that it wasn’t even included in the beta or alpha, is that it’s being saved for the post-launch content that Activision and Treyarch are planning on releasing.

Either way, it won’t be long until we find out since Black Ops Cold War is set to release on November 13, 2020.
