A Black Ops 4’s player has discovered a strange new glitch with the Prophet specialist that allows you to use unlimited Seeker Shock Mines.

The Seeker Mine is Prophet’s Specialist Equipment item. It’s a tactical item that hunts down enemy players when deployed. Once it finds an opponent, it will shock them and cause temporary paralysis.

Some community members have already expressed concerns that the item is overpowered and earned too quickly, but those concerns will treble when they see the bug shared by ‘noble_nanda’ on Reddit.

In a post titled “Huge Prophet Glitch – Unlimited Seeker Mines (Help Get Treyarch’s Attention!)” noble_nanda can be seen playing in the water at the boat house in Hacienda and throwing Seeker Mine after Seeker Mine with no cooldown period:

While there is some concern from other Reddit users that sharing the glitch could result in more players using it, the general consensus is that giving it more publicity will make it more likely that Treyarch notice it.

The developers have teased a major update coming later today, October 19, so players might not have to wait long for a fix to be implemented.

One thing that’s for certain is the update will be coming with a double XP weekend for all multiplayer and Zombies fans, so there should be something for everyone!

We have not tested this glitch on other maps and will not be posting any information on how to recreate it.

Activision has announced the second iteration of the CODE Bowl, which brings together high-profile esports players and members of the US and UK military esports teams to help raise money for the Call of Duty Endowment. Here’s what you need to know.

The Call of Duty Endowment has been raising money for veterans for a while now. The company, which was started in 2009, helps veterans find jobs after their deployment. In 2019, the owner of the company, Activision, held the first Modern Warfare CODE Bowl, which brought together major streamers and members of the US Army esports team.

Fast forward to December 2020 and Activision is continuing this tradition with two major changes: Black Ops Cold War is the name of the game this time around, and members of the UK military will also be participating. Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the tournament.

Who’s participating?

Like last year’s tournament, the 2020 CODE Bowl will feature teams made up of famous streamers/pro-players, including Courage, LEGIQN, Huskerrs, Swagg, TeeP, Espresso, Vikkstar, Tommey, C9Emz, and Spratt. According to Activision, more will be announced in the near future.

Beyond that, however, those players will be joined by members of the US Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, and Space Force, as well as members of the UK British Army, Royal Navy, and Royal Air Force.

In addition, each team will be coached by a “Call of Duty League professional” but the exact list of those people has yet to be announced.

Currently, it’s unknown how the teams will be split, but all in all, it should make for a pretty interesting dynamic.

How can I watch the 2020 CODE Bowl?

According to Activision, the 2020 CODE Bowl is set to take place on December 11, 2020, at 6:00 PM GMT. If you’re unsure about what time that is in your area, we’ve broken it down for you below:

  • 1 PM EST
  • 10 AM PST
  • 3 AM JST (Saturday, December 12, 2020)
  • 5 AM AEDT (Saturday, December 12, 2020)

In addition, the event will be streamed entirely on Call of Duty’s YouTube and Twitch channels. It’s currently unknown if the event is going to be streamed on the above players’ respective accounts, but one would imagine they would be. Embeds for each stream will be added once they become available.
