Competitive Call of Duty insider ‘CDL Intel’ has revealed a number of new rumors surrounding rosters in the upcoming franchise league.

With the Black Ops 4 season in the rearview mirror, the focus for Call of Duty esports has shifted towards Modern Warfare and the upcoming franchised league that is set to start in early 2020. 

The league, which has been confirmed as only having 12 teams for the inaugural season, has already opened its signing period for players – with London, New York, and Paris confirming their line-ups. As the wait goes on for official announcements, fans are clamoring for more early information from insiders like CDL Intel.

MLGThe Scump and FormaL duo looks set to reunite in frachised CoD according to CDL Intel.

The popular Twitter account has been giving regular updates on what they hear, including the possibility of some players making over $26,000 per month in their new franchised contracts. 

There have also been rumors about further roster moves, with Toronto having between eight and ten players for their team, GRVTY and Jurnii possibly joining up with Atlanta, and Tinyy apparently headed for Minnesota. 

CDL Intel has also revealed what they’ve previously heard about possible coaches and game type analysts. Former OpTic coach Teepee may head to Chicago, Nubzy might be linking up with the Seattle team, Merk and Rambo are possibly coaching with Dallas, with MuTeX also joining them as the Search and Destroy analyst or possible substitute.

The insider has, repeatedly, also shared the rosters that they’ve heard for each team – with this update being no different. 

All the rosters, expect the confirmed London, New York, and Paris squads, that have been reported by CDL Intel can be found below.

Note: These rosters are not confirmed, and remain only rumors.

  • Atalanta: aBeZy, Cellium, Priettaah, Simp, and MajorManiak
  • Chicago: Scump, FormaL, Envoy, Gunless, and Arcitys
  • Dallas: Huke, Crimsix, Clayster, iLLEY, and Shotzzy
  • Florida: Maux, Skyz, Prestinni, Frosty, and Havok
  • OpTic LA: Dashy, TJHaly, Kenny, SlasheR, and JKap
  • LA Kronke [Uncompleted]: Aches, Aqua, Saints, Decemate
  • Minnesota: Alexx, Asim, Silly, GodRX, and Assault
  • Seattle: Karma, Octane, Enable, Slacked, and apathy
  • Toronto: Loony, Methodz, Brack, Metalz, Luckky, CleanX, and others

Of course, while CDL Intel has been reliable for information in the past, these rumors should be taken with a pinch of salt until they are confirmed by their respective teams. 

Things can, and often do, change before the official announcement – so some moves could very well be in the pipeline for a number of teams that they haven’t heard just yet.

The Call of Duty Mobile devs have revealed that one iconic CoD weapon is coming in 2021’s Season 1 update, and it should be recognizable to any long-time CoD fan.

For years, Call of Duty fans have begged Infinity Ward, Treyarch, Activision, and anyone else who will listen, for a game that takes the best part of all previous releases and puts them into one.

Increasingly, we’re seeing more map remakes, classic weapons returning, and even character crossovers thanks to Warzone, but it’s CoD Mobile that really fits the bill of what that all-encompassing CoD game would be.

The mobile game has maps from CoD 4: Modern Warfare, Black Ops 1, as well as weapons from Advanced Warfare and even Black Ops 3 and 4. With the first major update of 2021 just around the corner, the devs have started teasing what’s coming next, and we’re getting more throwbacks.

CoD Mobile has characters, maps, and weapons from almost every modern Call of Duty game.

Even though CoD Mobile is currently, as of writing, in Season 13, when the first major update of 2021 hits, we’ll be back to Season 1. Just like how Fortnite is now Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Regardless, when players finally get to play the new season update, they’ll be able to wield the FAMAS. Yes, the iconic Call of Duty weapon, that has been in a whole host of CoD games is finally arriving in CoD Mobile.

The devs confirmed the news on January 16, tweeting out their first teaser for the new season. “A new weapon is approaching! Can you guess what it is?” they said, with an image and it’s fairly obvious that the weapon in question is the FAMAS.

The name of the iconic weapon might get a slight tweak when it is added to CoD Mobile. The devs have tweaked the names of other recognizable guns before, just to give it a new feel for the mobile game.

There’s also the question of whether it’ll be as powerful as it was, say, back in Black Ops 1. Hopefully, we don’t have to wait too long.
