Call of Duty ‘signs’ Man Utd star Paul Pogba to Verdansk FC

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has secured a transfer to Call of Duty’s Verdansk FC, and just about everybody hasn’t got a clue what that even means. 

Some of you may be wondering if this is yet another master stroke from his super agent Mino Raiola. Or, whether he’s finally moved away from Old Trafford, following months of speculation – even dating back to Jose Mourinho’s time at the club.

The World Cup winner announced the surprise move on August 12, posting the news to his 7.5 million followers on Twitter.

At that time, nobody knew what was going on.

He said: “Time to start my next chapter with Verdansk FC.”

Since that time, #VerdanskFC has gone viral on Twitter, with thousands of users wondering what it all means. The official Call of Duty account even followed up with a post of its own. On August 13, they confirmed the strangest transfer rumor this summer isn’t just a rumor.

Just like a regular football transfer, it was only fitting that CoD announced his arrival with a promo video.

Talk about boxes being ticked. We’ve had a confirmation tweet from him. His new team following that up. A new jersey unveiled. On top of all of that, his reveal was bundled into yet another trailer of the world’s most popular battle royale game.

This all represents nothing more than an advertising campaign between the two, we understand. It could see Pogba jump into Warzone a few times more than usual for the time being, but we’ll have to wait and see on that front.

For any Manchester United fans wondering if he’s actually swapped football for CoD esports, sadly that’s not the case. Maybe one day.

CoD Mobile devs explain why Overkill perk hasn’t been added yet

The Call of Duty Mobile devs have shed a little bit more light on why the Overkill perk hasn’t been added just yet despite being teased for a few seasons now.

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, fans of the game are treated to a whole batch of new content, typically including a new weapon, new map, new skins, and a new character. 

Back in CoD Mobile Season 8, the Overkill perk was supposed to be added alongside Quick Fix and Shrapnel. Though the other two made it in, Overkill was left locked until being removed not too long ago. 

The removal of the perk, which has been a staple in other CoD titles, has had fans questioning whether the devs are getting rid of it entirely, and now, they’ve shed a little more light on what’s happened.

Overkill was listed a perk for CoD Mobile but was never available.

Following their October 29 Community Update, where they revealed some additional content for Halloween, as well as going over bug fixes for the current season, the devs were quizzed on plenty of different topics – including Overkill. 

Players asked if it was still in the works and if they had any further info to add, given that players have been waiting quite a while to see it. “No, not yet. Still the same situation as before where we aren’t quite comfortable enough with weapon balance after the introduction of Gunsmith,”  the devs replied. 

Adding on to that, they continued: “We need weapon balance to be damn near perfect before we drop Overkill into the mix since that can have a huge effect on weapon balance as well.”

Given that the power of balancing is in the hands of the devs, there’s no telling as to when the mobile game will be balanced enough for Overkill to be introduced. 

Fans who have been waiting for the perk will be hoping that this day comes sooner rather than later, but, we’ll just have to wait and see.
