 Professional Call of Duty player Dillon ‘Attach‘ Price was featured on a national news show on CNN, but not for the reasons you’d expect. 

While talk of politics is not commonly found in the world of professional gaming and esports, there are those that will crack a joke here and there about governmental leaders, especially the President of the United States, Donald Trump. 

Case in point – Attach, a world champion CoD pro who called Trump “the most successful troll of all time” in a tweet on June 22.

His tweet came in response to one that the President had put out, which included an animated cover of Time Magazine suggesting that his policies and ideology could far outlive his Presidency. 

While Attach may not have thought much about his tweet, since he’s hardly the first to say such a thing about the current President, the post ended up being featured on CNN, one of the biggest news outlets in the US and around the world.

The tweet put out by Trump, and other comments he had made relating to the subject, were being discussed on a political commentary show when suddenly Attach’s tweet was flashed across the screen, and was even read out-loud by the host.

The moment was captured by the CoD pro and posted on his Instagram account, along with the caption “Welp, I was on CNN yesterday lol”

Attach and Evil Geniuses walking CWL Pro League tightrope

While getting a tweet featured on CNN might be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for Attach, his current situation in the CWL Pro League is far from ideal.

He and his Evil Geniuses squad are currently 8-13 in Division A, and are mathematically eliminated from finish in the top-four, meaning that they cannot clinch an automatic entry into the $1.25 million Playoffs at CWL Finals.

However, EG will still have a chance of making it into the postseason, as the bottom-four teams from both divisions will compete against each other in a Play-In tournament, from which two squads will qualify for Playoffs.

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.
