It has been announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be playable for those that attend the upcoming $200,000 CWL Anaheim Open in Anaheim, California.

As one of the largest events each year, the annual CWL Anaheim Open has become a staple of the Call of Duty esports community, and is one of the most attended LAN tournaments for teams, spectators, and general members of the community.

Over 160 of the best teams in the world will battle it out at the Anaheim Convention Center for their share of a $200,000 prize pool, along with a slew of pro points on the line.

However, those attending Anaheim in 2018 are in store for a treat, with the official Call of Duty Twitter account announcing on June 1st that those in attendance will be able to play Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 multiplayer for the first time.

Since the ‘Community Reveal Event’ in mid-May where Treyarch revealed new information on the game for the first time including multiplayer aspects, the all-new ‘Battle Royale’ mode, and more, community members have been in a frenzy to learn more about the upcoming release.

It appears that Black Ops 4 will be playable at the PlayStation booth throughout CWL Anaheim, however, more information has yet to be provided.

CWL Anaheim is scheduled to take place between Friday, June 17th and Sunday, June 17th, with more information the annual tournament able to be found right here.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will release worldwide on Friday, October 12th.

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.
